Terminator 2 T 800 Endoglow 044

In 1991, Kenner released their Endoglow Terminator. After a nuclear blast melts away its organic bioflesh, all that’s left is the hulking Terminator itself. The figure was a T-800 Endoskeleton that featured a flame thrower blaster and a few Glow-In-The-Dark pieces. When NECA unveiled their exclusives to coincide with San Diego Comic-Con 2015, an homage to that classic Kenner figure was among them. Taking their existing T-800 figure, NECA swapped out some of the armor pieces for Glow-In-The-Dark pieces and included the excellent Plasma Rifle (seen with their Robocop vs Terminator and reissue T-800 Figures).

Today we have a full gallery of the Endoglow Terminator. NECA sent along a figure for review and we have 45 photo to check out.

NECA Ambush Predator 041

Back when Kenner was producing Predator figures, they offered a cool mail-away exclusive figure. That was the Ambush Predator. It was cast in clear plastic with black paint around the eyes, while the eyes were bright green. The figure included body armor, a chromed mask and two massive arm blade weapons. After 22 years, NECA has recreated the Ambush Predator figure, which fits in fantastically with their Predator Series 13, Kenner inspired, figures. The figure, which reuses their excellent Viper Predator mold, includes two masks and new blade weapons inspired by the original figure.

The Ambush Predator was available as part of their Summer Exclusives during San Diego Comic-Con 2015. NECA sent one along and we have a full high resolution gallery and review. Read on to check it out.

Friday The 13th Part 6 Retro Pamela and Jason 028

NECA toys shocked horror fans when they first teased a retro 2-pack of Pamela and Jason Voorhees from the first Friday the 13th film. The pair initially seemed like an odd choice. But as more images and info came out, it became clear that we were in for a pretty special release. The original film, for the most part, is a straight forward slasher film with a fantastic twist ending. Underneath that, though, is a fairly heartbreaking back story. A mother, so grief stricken and angry at the negligent death of her helpless son, lets insanity set in and becomes a ruthless killer. You can see the anguish in her face as she talks about the death of Jason throughout the film. Then you see her fractured psyche as she makes her murderous intentions known.

The crew at NECA were kind enough to send one of these out for review. We’ve got over 50 high resolution photos and a review for the set. You can check them out by reading on.

SDCC 2015 Goku 36

Back in June of this year, Tamashii Nations released a repaint of Son Goku featuring his Go Kanji logo, a new belt, and a new face. Everyone was down, except that it was limited to 300 units and available only in person, at Mexican event. I think most of the DBZ SHF fans first reaction was – WTF? Fast forward to SDCC 2015, and that same figure has been released, this time as a Comic Con exclusive, just with a different box. That definitely bumps the numbers up and lets the hardcore fans get a hold of him for a much more reasonable price. We were able to get a hold of him finally and have done up a photo shoot showing off Goku’s new digs. Check out over 35 HD shots of him in action after the break!

Blueline Batman 37

DC Collectibles put out a pretty awesome exclusive this year at SDCC – a “blueline” version of their New 52 Batman figure. The figure is pure white head to toe, with paint apps meant to mimic inking as would be done on a penciled page of a comic book before it is colored. This was overseen by none other than all star artist Jim Lee. The “blueline” aspect comes into play because the packaging features design cues from the blank pages comic artists use to do their pages, what they submit to the comic publisher to be inked and then scanned for coloring (now a days). The standard one came with a printed sketch by Jim Lee, and there were 150 units with hand done sketches, 50 Batman, 50 Joker, 50 Harley. Those are running crazy prices right now in the aftermarket, but I’m cool with the standard one, I can open this without ruining a down payment on a car.

The figure is a fantastic art piece that I was looking forward to since they announced it. Even though doesn’t fit in on a “DC Universe line up” shelf, it’s a cool unique accent piece, and I’m happy I was able to pick one up. Check out over 35 shots of the SDCC Blueline Batman after the break!
