NECA Force of Freedom Rambo 022

Rambo: The Force of Freedom was a cartoon and toy line from 1986. The line was spawned from the classic Rambo series of films and was produced by Coleco. For San Diego Comic-Con 2015, NECA produced a great homage to the classic John Rambo figure. Their Rambo: The Force of Freedom 7″ Scale Figure, which Toyark was given a chance to exclusively reveal prior to SDCC, features a paint scheme and packaging that harkens back to the 1986 figure.

NECA was kind enough to provide us one for a gallery and review. After the jump you can check out all of the high resolution photos as well as my thoughts on the exclusive figure.

NECA Iron Maiden Piece of Mind Eddie 019

Iron Maiden has one of the most recognizable mascots in all of music. Eddie, aka Eddie the Head, has adorned their album covers, shirts, posters, and memorabilia since the band released their first album. Eddie has taken on various styles and persona’s related to the album title or single over the years. The iconic character artwork was originally done by the amazing artist Derek Riggs, though many other artists have contributed to Eddie work since the 90’s. His deranged, undead like visage was and is a huge part of what makes Iron Maiden a staple of 80’s and 90’s metal.

NECA has been releasing Iron Maiden collectibles for almost as long as I have been covering them. It’s been a staple of their music licenses and when they launched their retro 8″ Mego homage line, Eddie was a natural fit. Their third figure in the line harkens back to the great Piece of Mind album by Iron Maiden. NECA was kind enough to send one along for us to check out. Read on to check out the images and my thoughts on the figure, which is available now.
