One day recently I was sitting in my office when a surprise package arrived for me. I signed for it from the delivery man and flipped the box over. What did I see? The word ALIEN with a big Facehugger on the side of the box.
As we have grown accustomed to NECA had a whole slew of awesome SDCC exclusives this year. Most years their exclusives are some of the most sought after of the Con. This year was certainly no different. They had three exclusives figures that people were very excited to grab. They were the TMNT Arcade Turtles and Foot sets, the ALIENS Newt figure, and of course the Cloaked Scar Predator!
Scar is one my favorite Predators and I am also a sucker for the clear "cloaked" Predator figures so this figure is a match made in Heaven for me.
Pacific Rim is all about Kaiju monsters attacking earth through a portal in the sea. It starts off with some great action sequences in the beginning of the movie. He is shown in night vision in the prologue of the movie fighting Romeo Blue. The kaijus from the movie are awesome and we get to see the epic size of these monsters the jaegers have to fight.
If you are a fan
of the NECA Toys Aliens line then you are going to want to add these GITD Xeno eggs! NECA has already
brought us the Alien egg carton a little while back, and the GITD versions add a special touch to the eggs and facehuggers. If you are into making your own dioramas like we are then the Alien
eggs are a dream come true for you!
Where do I even begin with these? Over and over Randy Falk and the crew over at NECA TOYS find ways to make the unthinkable happen. This year's SDCC exclusive sets are no exception. The Konami arcade styled TMNT and Foot four packs just miiiight be my favorite thing NECA has done to date. (With that said, I am certainly looking forward to the 1/4 scale movie Donatello hitting retail this fall).
Those that know me know that I am one of the biggest TMNT fans out there. When I think about my childhood and toys I think about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Over the last few years I've found some online buddies who share this passion with me such as The Sewer Den and Crooked Ninja (good guys...check 'em out).
