If you have been following our coverage of Toy Fair on our Twitter feed then you know that NECA Toys brought it this year. Literally, every single item that they had on display was a home run, and there isn't any other company that I can say that about (although there were some other spectacular things that we will post about soon).
We had a 2:00 pm appointment with Randy at the NECA booth on Saturday, but of course Steve and I couldn't wait that long to see what they had in store for us. We made our way to the NECA booth and were amazed by what we saw. Upon entering their booth I was immediately hit with a bad case of A.D.D. Haha I just couldn't keep my eyes focused with so many awesome things all in one place.
Where do we even start? Let's start with an item I have been dying to talk about, the NES Godzilla. Steve and I got to see it in person at the NECA studios back in September. We had to keep this awesome secret to ourselves for all this time. : ) I love this figure and I wouldn't change one single thing about him. The paint scheme and added pixels look exactly the same as it does in the video game. It's nice to see NECA keeping things fresh and giving each new NES figure a different take.
The next item is something we have all been waiting for for a LOOOOOOONG time, John Matrix of COMMANDO! Oh yes!!! The wait is over. Steve and I often talk about figures we would like to see made and John Matrix has always been at the top of that list. He looks amazing. The sculpt and likeness is dead-on accurate and he comes with tons of great weapons and accessories. I can't wait to get him!
Predators are one of my favorites lines that NECA makes and the AVP line did not disappoint. They made them just right. They didn't go with that super fake looking, hefty 'roided out look. They made them in the more classic look we are accustomed to, and I am very thankful for that. The armor, weapons, and details are excellent. And, of course, the Dark Horse and retro video game Predators are fantastic. I will be spending a lot of money on Predator figures this year.
The NES Gremlin is kick ass. I don't own any NECA Gremlin figures yet, but this guy will be my first one. I don't have the time to go into deep detail on every single figure in just one post, but wow there are a lot of goodies coming our way! We're talking T2, GENISYS, ALIENS, HOME ALONE, POTA, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, SUPERMAN.
If you are not excited about T2, or the Power Loader, or the Alien six pack then I am worried that you might not have a pulse.
Once we went for our scheduled appointment Randy took us around and answered every single question that we had..and we had A LOT!!! Randy is truly a class act and treated us extremely well. We had a half hour appointment and Randy spent an entire hour with Steve and I. He truly is the best in the business. He was even kind enough to take us into the back and show us some goodies that aren't ready to be shown to the public yet. :) Sorry, we can't tell you what those are but just know that they're going to be awesome as always and minds will be blown.
The craziest part of it all is that NECA had so many outstanding items on display and it was all only for the first half of the year!!! Wow, I can't wait to see what's in store for us for the rest of the year!
Enough with the talking...check out our pictures below.
