NECA -2015 Toy Fair Report


Here’s all the cool stuff I found at the NECA booth at the 2015 Toy Fair.


You saw my son’s stop motion Pacific Rim movie, so you know I was excited to see all new figures. However these little figures up front are something unique. In the beginning of the film, we see a young boy with toy kaiju figures. These are exact replicas of those toys in the film. These will be a SDCC exclusive. The 18″ Eureka will be out in the spring.


I really liked this cloth suit Interstellar two-pack featuring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. It only comes as a two-pack, but the cloth space suits and actor likenesses are spot on. I kept making jokes to Randy that they should pop the Cornelius head from the classic Planet of the Apes line on the body and sell it as a Escape from the Planet of the Apes SDCC exclusive. I would love that.


We’ve seen prop replicas before, but this Halo Master Chief helmet is functional, and DOT-rated. That’s right, this is a legit motorcycle helmet that is road-safe. Some details are finalized, but if you didn’t look bad-ass on a motorcycle before (what’s wrong with you?) then you will now.


I don’t know if you remember the T2 figures that came out around the original release of the movie, but these are the figures we’ve deserved. This looks amazing. Check the gallery for some additional heads.


NECA has several figures that sport a paint job that is reminiscent of their vintage video game appearance. I have to say, they actually pulled it off. It would be easy to be gimmicky and slap some retro colors on existing molds, but in the case of Godzilla, he has taller fins to match his video game appearance, and this Alien3 xenomorph has the duo tone paint job that matched his look in the game. They’re executed beautifully.
