In a new tweet by Super 7 they have announced a new license acquisition. They have acquired the license to Iron Maiden, the legendary metal band known for hits like Run to the Hills, Number of the Beast, The Trooper, 2 Minutes to Midnight and many more. The image in the tweet shows Eddie the Head, but we don’t know yet how the license will be used. We’ll update when we know more.

As part of our Week of NECA, we are going to be looking back at some of our past galleries. Each retrospective will include a theme. We’ll highlight all of the NECA galleries we’ve taken. Most will fall under the theme for that day. Today we take a look back at our NECA Mego Style 8″ Retro Figure Galleries. While I have personally been collecting many of the figures in this line, I started a bit late. So we have official galleries of seven releases. But we also have used various other NECA Mego Figures figures throughout our galleries. Below, you can find the Toyark galleries for the Mego figures as well as NECA’s official Mego Style Visual Guide. Check back tomorrow as we revisit another set of NECA galleries!

NECA posted a preview of the packaging for their upcoming Iron Maiden Eddie “2 Minutes to Midnight” retro figure.We got a chance to check out the figure during San Diego Comic-Con 2015.

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.
Be sure to keep up with all of our NECA Toy Galleries.
