With NY Toy Fair looming on the horizon, some companies have already begun making big reveals. Mezco has been doing it for the past few weeks, teasing a new Jack Torrance Living Dead Doll and a new One:12 Captain Marvel figure based on Brie Larson’s look in the new movie.
NECA has now joined the reveals, debuting on their Facebook a long-anticipated and equally long teased 18-inch Shredder action figure! Based on his look in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from 1990, this figure was definitely worth the wait!
Check out the photo gallery below:
Not only does Shredder come with a variety of weapons and different removable hands, his face mask is also removable, giving us a glimpse of the man under the metal mask. Plus, his cape is removable, and can I just say – that cape always bothered me. It just looked like a trash bag hanging off his shoulders. Definitely looks much better here.
The big question is will The Shredder and the movie-style Foot Clan ninja join their 7″ brethren and be made into smaller action figures too? One can only hope, and seeing as how the TMNT movie figures are hitting mainstream stores like Gamestop, perhaps that’s a positive step forward in making these less exclusive [to conventions] and more accessible to everyone.
