NECA Robocop vs Terminator 086

With NECA‘s classic video game series figures, they’ve mainly focused on classic Nintendo Entertainment System themed characters. Thsi summer, they bagan to branch out of that with the introduction of a Sega Master System inspired Rocky Balboa, and the 16-Bit Robocop vs Terminator Figures. Unlike previous releases, the Robocop vs Terminator figures featured a full lineup of characters, as opposed to a one-off figure. Also, the packaging would be changed from window boxes with a flap to standard window box designs. Included are the following releases:

  • Robocop with Flamethrower
  • Battle Damaged Robocop with Rocket Launcher
  • Terminator T-800 Cyborg with Plasma Rifle
  • Terminator T-800 Endoskeleton Heavy Gunner
  • Terminator T-800 Endoskeleton 2-Pack

I finally got my hands on the figures, and I have a full photo shoot to check out. After the jump you can find over 130 photos as well as my review of the series.

McFarlane Walking Dead Boiler Room Set 1

Check out this preview for a new Walking Dead construction Set coming from McFarlane Toys. Todd McFarlane himself shared photos of the prototype for a Prison Boiler Room Construction Set that should hit next year. He also states that sales have been beyond their expectations, with recent weekly data showing stronger sales than even Black Friday! I did up a photo shoot of most of the first wave (minus the Prison Tower which I’ll be shooting after Christmas), which you can see Here, Here, and Here.

Mezco One12 Collective Batman Figure 003

Back in July, Mezco surprised collectors by announcing an all new line of highly articulated collectible figures; the One:12 Collective line. To introduce us to the line, Mezco revealed the first figure, which was a Batman based on Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. The One:12 Collective Figures fall somewhere between the look of traditional 1/6 scale figures and retro Mego style designs. They feature the high level of articulation and cloth outfits you would expect in 1/6 scale figures, but are scaled down to about 6” tall. At this size, it keeps the price low for fans who want the look and feel of the much more expensive 1/6 scale figures, but don’t want to sacrifice the bells and whistles that those lines offer.

The Dark Knight Returns Batman alone features over 32 points of articulation and includes numerous accessories. The figures includes an alternate head sculpt, four sets of interchangeable hands, interchangeable boots, a removable utility belt, a pistol, a grappling hook, and a figure stand with Bat-symbol base. That’s an impressive array of accessories for the roughly $65 price tag online retailers are listing it for. The Batman figure is also coming in multiple colors. Right now, there are three versions revealed, giving fans a chance to own the version that suits their tastes. These include the iconic black and gray outfit, a Previews Exclusive retro style blue and gray costume and a Special Limited Version featuring a navy blue and gray costume.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2014, we got our first in person look at the Batman Figures. We also got our first news of the next figures in the line. They had announcement cards revealing that we would get a comic version of Judge Dredd and a Michael Keaton Batman. While we haven’t yet seen the 1989 Batman, we did finally see the awesome looking Judge Dredd in October during our coverage of Mezco’s New York Comic-Con 2014 Display. Like the Batman, the Dredd figure features a highly articulated body, a cloth outfit, interchangeable hands, numerous weapons and a themed figure base. Fans were especially pleased with the Judge Dredd design. We can’t wait to see what else is in store for the line.

Mezco has shared with us an exclusive, behind-the-scenes style look at the upcoming Dark Knight Returns Batman Figure. This “exploded” x-ray style view gives us a look at how the figures will be assembled. It also gives a look at where and how the alternate pieces will connect. As you can see, the figure has no shortage of articulation points. Articulation ranges from ball joints to hinge joints and features the much loved ab/torso articulation for truly dynamic poses. Read on to check out the image as well as a bunch of other official images showcasing the figures and a cool shot of the figure displayed in Times Square, NY.
