In 2015, NECA released an absolutely stellar Batman Returns – 1/4 Scale Penguin Figure. The figure was based on the Penguin as he appeared earlier in the film, in his ripped pajamas, with a jacket and hat. Many fans, though, wanted the figure to be more in line with the Mayor version of the Penguin. Now those fans have their wish with the release of the Batman Returns – 1/4 Scale Mayoral Penguin from NECA. This version of the figure portrays Penguin from later in the film, complete with suit, new coat, top hat and more. We have this figure via Toyark sponsor Dorkside Toys. Read on for our gallery and full review.
One of my most anticipated figures of the year has wound up being my final photo shoot of 2016. The NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1990 Movie – Donatello 1/4 Scale Figure is now available both online and in stores. Based on the first live action TMNT movie, NECA is setting out to give fans the ultimate versions of these fan favorite designs and characters. Originally created by Jim Henson Studios for the film, the suits were a marvel of modern puppetry and design when the film was released. The in-suit actors were able to pull off stunning amounts of martial arts movements, all while puppeteers handled the complex masks, that brought the Turtles to life. NECA painstakingly recreated the suits in 1/4 scale, giving these 16.5″ tall Turtles an enormous amount of realism. To top off the package, NECA included Donnie’s bo staff, an assortment of interchangeable hands, a TCRI ooze canister and a slice of pizza. Toyark sponsor entertainment Earth sent the figure over for us to check out. We have over 50 photos and a full review. You can check them out after the jump.
The A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge – 1/4 Scale Freddy Krueger by NECA is now available in stores and online. The 18″ tall figure is based on the second film in the A Nightmare On Elm Street Series, and was the film that helped to craft the more iconic look for Freddy. In the second film, the makeup department made numerous tweaks to the character, such as adding striped to his sleeves, and refining the burnt make up to look less like fresh burns. The makeup would be updated again for Dream Warriors, which became the default look for Freddy in the subsequent films. For the figure, NECA included everything you would need for a film accurate Freddy’s Revenge figure. The 1/4 scale release includes two interchangeable heads, interchangeable claw hands and a removable hat. Toyark sponsor Dorkside Toys sent along the figure for us to check out. We have over 40 high resolution images and a full review. Read on to check them out.
For the 30th Anniversary of Aliens, the team from NECA has given their fans plenty of surprises to celebrate the milestone. Among the biggest surprises was the reveal of a Rebecca “Newt” Jordan 7″ Scale Figure as a San Diego Comic-Con 2016 Exclusive. While the figure was a welcome addition to the Aliens line up, many were disappointed that the oft requested figure was an exclusive, not even available to order online. As Fall came, NECA had one more Ace up their sleeve, and announced that a new 2-pack would hit before the end of the year, giving fans a chance to own Newt at a fraction of the cost of trying to get the exclusive in the aftermarket. The NECA Aliens 30th Anniversary Rescuing Newt 2-Pack features Ellen Ripley and Newt and is based on the iconic poster for the Aliens film (which acts as the box art for this set. To complete the look, NECA created a new head sculpt for Ripley and completely repainted both figures to more closely match the poster. Thanks to Toyark sponsor Dorkside Toys, we were able to share our own gallery for this release. Read on to check out the photos and our review.
