With any toy company, or any production company at all, you have products that simply don’t make it to market. Reasons vary from product to product. Some times it’s related to cost, other times a line isn’t doing well enough to justify a new release or the product has the misfortune of never being ready for the public. Fans who have followed NECA for a long time know some of their most iconic unreleased items, such as their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder or the Shaun of the Dead Zombie Ed. But that’s really only the tip of the iceberg.
As part of our Week of NECA, we’re going to take a look at a few of the unreleased items from over the years. Keep in mind, this is only a small sample size of the unreleased figures. For every figure or collectible we know about, there are likely a dozen that have never been seen outside of those working at the studio. Read on and take a look at the “What If’s” of the NECA toy world.
