NECA has released final packaging photos for the soon to be released Gremlins 2: The New Batch – Greta Ultimate 7″ Scale Figure. The figure includes interchangeable hands, a pink feather boa, and a potion container. The figure is going to begin shipping to retailers soon, and should be on shelves next month. Check out the new packaging images after the jump.
Any fans of the Gremlins movies knows the rules: keep them out of sunlight, don’t get them wet, and never feed them after midnight. Break them, and your fuzzy, friendly little Mogwai will turn into a scaly, savage Gremlin.
After years of waiting, the highly requested Greta Gremlin is making her debut as the first Ultimate release from Gremlins 2: The New Batch. Standing approximately 6″ tall, Greta features a new head sculpt with synthetic hair and comes with interchangeable hands, a pink boa, and the hormone potion that transformed her into the only female gremlin.

Welcome back to “Figures Wanted”, my look at classic properties that should get new collectibles. It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these. If you missed the previous articles, I have covered classic video game franchises Double Dragon and Battletoads (which are tentatively set to receive a figure line), as well as John Carpenter’s classic 1982 film; The Thing. For my newest entry, I’m talking about…MORTAL KOMBAT! No, not that video game series, which has gotten collectibles from a number of companies. I’m talking about the live action film from director Paul W.S. Anderson that debuted in 1995. The movie was extremely popular when originally released, and spawned a live-action prequel television series, and a vastly inferior sequel that embodied everything moviegoers despise about video game adaptations. With a new film set to debut in April 2021 (simultaneously in theaters and HBO Max), we figured now is the perfect time to revisit the movie.
Like the other fighting game based film, Street Fighter, the Mortal Kombat movie led to very few spin-off items. Collectibles for the Mortal Kombat live action film was limited to a small run of figures in 1995. Since then, that has been it. It wasn’t until the release of Mortal Kombat 11 that any of the films characters made their way back to the video game world. When originally released, you could play as Shang Tsung, who is portrayed once again by Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa. A recent update has added even more movie versions to the game, including Linden Ashby as Johnny Cage, Bridgette Wilson as Sonya Blade, and Christopher Lambert as Lord Raiden.
In this article, I’ll talk about the history of the film and its successful run at the box office. After that, I’ll delve into which characters would best transition to the toy world, and which companies would be best to take on the license.
NECA has released final packaging images for their upcoming Ultimate Rhino Alien Version 2 Figure. The 7″ scale figure pays homage to the variant Rhino Alien from the Kenner Toys Aliens action figure line from the 1990’s. While the original Rhino Alien release was a mix of reds, and oranges, the new release has a paint deco more in line with a traditional Xenomorph color scheme. The figure is about 10″ tall. The figure begins shipping to retailers in February. Check out the new photos after the jump.
Prepare to be bowled over by the newest addition to NECA’s Kenner Tribute line!
The Rhino Alien is back and better than ever with brand new paint deco based on the variant release. Our team took inspiration from Kenner’s classic design and transformed it into an all-new modern behemoth featuring all of today’s detail and articulation. Rhino Alien measures approximately 10” and has a massive ramming horn for attacking its unlucky prey.

EXO-6 Launches High-Quality 1:6 Scale Statues and Figures from Across the Star Trek™ Universe
The first figure will feature Lieutenant Commander Data from Star Trek: First Contact
LOS ANGELES, CA — Jan. 15, 2021 — New collectibles company, EXO-6, signed a deal with ViacomCBS Consumer Products to produce statues and one-sixth scale articulated figures from the Star Trek television series’ and movies.
Previously a developer of one-sixth scale figures for other companies, EXO-6 is now launching as a self-contained development, production, and manufacturing entity. Spearheaded by entrepreneur, Schubert Tam, the company will produce collectible figures from the beloved science fiction franchise, Star Trek.
“Being able to bring these characters, that I’ve loved since childhood, to fans around the world is a dream come true,” said Tam. “I’ve always been fascinated with the hyper-realistic 1:6 figures and I feel this is the best type of collectible to celebrate the characters of Star Trek and the actors that portray them.”
EXO-6 will produce a wide-range of characters from across the Star Trek Universe, with each series of figures planned out in advance. The first figure that will be on pre-sale soon at www.exo-6.com is Lieutenant Commander Data as seen in the feature film, Star Trek: First Contact.
“Data is an android striving to become human. He is one of the most popular characters in Star Trek, and no other character better expresses the wonder of discovery that is the heart of Star Trek than this android with a soul. The EXO-6 1:6 scale figure of Data will not only embody the hopefulness of the character, but also bring an element of Brent Spiner’s performance into collector’s homes,” said Tam.
The Data 1/6 Scale figure will be priced at $189.95 (tentatively). Pre-orders are not yet live, but should be soon. No release date was posted. After the jump, find photos and additional details for the Data figure.
