Today I look at the third and final figure from wave 3 of the Heroes of the Storm figures by NECA Toys. Over the last few days, I’ve shared photos and reviews for Starcraft’s Jim Raynor and Warcraft’s Thrall. Today I have Sylvanas from World of Warcraft. The Undead Elven Ranger is a leader of the Forsaken faction of the undead. The figure includes a bow, arrows and a magical arrow. She also includes a fabric cape. Sylvanas stands a little under 7″ tall and is available in stores now. Toyark sponsor Dorkside Toys sent along the figure. Read on for photos and my review.
A couple weeks ago, NECA posted a Gif showing the arm design of a Alien vs Predator Arcade Major Dutch Schaefer Figure. Now they have released an actual preview photo that seems to really indicate an arcade Dutch figure is going to be coming at some point. The new image showcases a massive parts breakdown for an upcoming figure. The parts look to include his mechanical arm with numerous interchangeable parts and detailed working mechanics.
For now, take this as an unconfirmed preview. We’ll update as more details are released. Click the thumbnail for a closer look.

Heroes of the Storm is Blizzard Entertainment’s massively popular multiplayer online battle arena video game (aka MOBA) for PC and Mac. It brings together heroes and villains from numerous Blizzard franchises such as Warcraft, Diablo and Starcraft. NECA has produced multiple figures based on their appearance in the game. Earlier, I shared a photo shoot and review for the Jim Raynor Figure. Today I take a look at the second figure in NECA’s final assortment of Heroes of the Storm action figures; Thrall from the Warcraft game series. The 7″ scale Warchief of the Horde includes a hammer. Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth provided us with the figure. After the jump check out the photos and my thoughts on Thrall.
New in-package photos have been released for the upcoming NECA Action Figure Head Display Stands. The new stands come in a 3-pack and feature an assortment of connector pieces to fit a number of action figures. The stands can work with most 6″ to 8″ scale head sculpts! They should work well with not only NECA figures, but also Star Wars Black Series, Marvel Legends, Color Tops and more. The stands themselves are 3″ tall.
The final wave of Heroes of the Storm figures by NECA can be found in stores now. The assortment includes Jim Raynor from Starscraft, Sylvanas from World of Warcraft and Thrall from Warcraft. As each of the three figures is very different in style, I’ll be taking a look at each of them individually. I’m kicking things off with the Jim Raynor 7″ Scale Figure. Originally part of the Starscraft game franchise, Raynor is a basic attack Assassin Hero in Heroes of the Storm, excelling at ranged attacks. The figure includes the C-14 Impaler Gauss Rifle. Toyark sponsor Dorkside Toys has provided us with the figure. You can read on for my thoughts as well as a full gallery.
A great new preview has been posted by NECA. They shared a look at the painted and unpainted version of the upcoming Alien vs Predator Arcade Razor Claws Alien. This gives fans a nice look at the paint and the mold itself. See below for details on the entire Aliens assortment from the arcade game.
Introducing a new collection inspired by the classic 1994 arcade game that actually predates the movie! The Aliens Assortment includes three Alien adversaries from the game: Razor Claws, Chrysalis and Arachnoid make their action figure debut with paint deco that re-creates the look of the arcade game.
The figures utilize the new super-poseable Ultimate body, with over 30 points of articulation and bendable tail. Approximately 9″ tall. Window box packaging.
NECA tweeted out a new preview for an upcoming Predator action figure. The preview gives us a look at the mask that will be used for the figure. While the specific Predator is not named, it does share similarities to the Dark Horse Comics Bad Blood Predator, whose mask is seen only briefly in the comics. We’ve included the comic panel, which was shared by twitter user @DraksCustoms.
We will update as more details are released. You can see the images by reading on.
