The National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc. (NECA) is proud to work alongside The Weinstein Company and Quentin Tarantino to produce a full line of consumer products based off of Tarantino’s Django Unchained.
This upcoming western film, written and directed by the legendary Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill and more), takes place in the deep south, where a slave-turned-bounty hunter (Jamie Foxx) sets forth to rescue his wife from a brutal but charming plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio).
“We’re very excited to bring the stellar cast of Django to life”, says Joel Weinshanker, President of NECA, “and honored to be working with another Tarantino masterpiece”.
Similar to the retro toy lines that helped define the licensed action figure market in the 1970s this collection will include poseable 8″ action figures with tailored western clothing, authentic weapons and accessories, as well as a full apparel and accessories line. Characters included are:
– Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio)
– Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson)
– Django (Jaime Foxx)
– Broomhilda (Kerry Washington)
– Butch (James Remar)
– And Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz)
Initial product launch will begin this November 2012.
Toyark sponsor Big Bad Toy Store has these all up for pre-order now. No images are currently available, but we will report on them once revealed.
