Yesterday, the NECA Instagram Account was taken over by actress Judith Hoag who fans remember as April O’Neil from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1990 Movie. During her take over, she announced that NECA will be producing a 7″ scale action figure based on the 1990 movie version of April O’Neil! That’s not all, as she is going to be hosting a series of behind-the-scenes updates where she tracks the creation of the figure from beginning to end. Quotes below from Judith Hoag*:
“The deal got sealed when NECA explained their new way of handling internet bots and agreed to a presale for my fans so you get the first shot at the new og April O’Neil action figure (details all about that soon!) AND – said YES to letting me take you w/me to shoot as a series – which means you get to go inside NECA and see how an action figure goes from A-Z and I’ll be your host! Trust me-I’ll be fan girling right along with you!
We made a deal: 1990 April O’Neil action figure is coming in 2021 AND I’m documenting the whole process from conception to reveal in a series on my YouTube channel: Judith Hoag – Goddess On Fire.”
Those are the available details at this time. The figure hits in 2021, and will be available for presale similar to the Tokka and Rahzar set (confirmed by NECA). We will update as more details become available.
