Check out a preview of the packaging for NECA‘s newest Friday The 13th Collectible.

In the latest wave of Universal Monsters Select Figures from Diamond Select Toys, fans finally had a chance to own a true rival to the monsters. Unlike many of the designs in the series, Van Helsing is based on a completely original design by sculptor Jean St. Jean. The latest series also features a phenomenal Creature From The Black Lagoon and and all new Son of Frankenstein.
Today we have a gallery and review for the Monster Hunter Van Helsing Select Figure. You can find all of the Universal Monster Select Figures at DiamondSelectToys.com. After the jump you’ll find the review and 45 photos.
A new photo posted by ThreeZero shows an in-progress look at a few unannounced figures. From what I can make out, I’ve spotted the following:
- Game of Thrones – Jon Snow and Ghost
- Walking Dead – Bicycle Girl Walker
- Crysis Game Series – Crysis Nanosuit (Alcatraz perhaps)
- Mech – Not sure what the mech standing is
In the background I can see the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones. What else do you spot there?
Here we have our third photo shoot from the release of McFarlane’s The Walking Dead Building Sets. In addition to The Governor’s Room, Daryl Dixon on Motorcycle and the Prison Tower, they also released a multi-pack of five figures. Included in the set is Rick Grimes (Season 3 pose and outfit), Merle Dixon and three very different Walkers. Unlike the blind bags, this set lets you know which five figures you are getting, which makes it more appealing for those who hate hunting down figures and winding up with lots of duplicates.
After the jump, you can find a gallery of 70 detailed photos as well as my thoughts on the figures.
With NECA’s Ultimate Freddy Krueger hitting shelves soon, they have released a closer look at the figure. NECA is releasing their most comprehensive 7″ scale Freddy Krueger figure to celebrate the 30th anniversary of A Nightmare On Elm Street. The figure includes three interchangeable heads (closed mouth, open mouth grimace, and ripped skull face). Freddy features an interchangeable left hand, which has two fingers cut off and includes a Tina dead skin mask, a tongue phone, and a fedora.

Earlier today we posted a gallery showcasing the fantastic The Governor’s Room – Walking Dead Building Set. Now I’d like to share the second of three galleries. This one showcases the Daryl Dixon with Motorcycle. As with all of The Walking Dead Building Sets, this is a Toys “R” Us Exclusive. This is also the smallest, and least expensive, of the main sets available. The set includes a highway base, Daryl Dixon, a motorcycle and a Walker.
After the jump you can find my thoughts on the set. I also have over 50 photos for your enjoyment.
When McFarlane first announced The Walking Dead Building Block Sets, I was excited and intrigued. While they were compatible with existing brick lines, such as LEGO and MEGA Bloks, the aesthetic was wildly different. These sets, which are Toys “R” Us Exclusive, are now hitting shelves. I managed to snag a few and will be doing up detailed photo shoots.
First up is The Walking Dead – The Governor’s Room Building Set. Included are pieces to assemble a The Governor’s isolated room, filled with walker heads in fish tanks, as well as his zombified daughter; Penny. Read on to see over 60 photos of the set, as well as a review.
Over the weekend, NECA had teased that they were working on a new Ultimate Horror Figure, as the response to their Ultimate Freddy Krueger has been overwhelmingly positive. The identity of that new figure has been revealed to be Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. NECA revealed a few photos of the in-progress sculpting, giving us very early look at the design.
