NECA had so much stuff at NY Toy Fair 2016 that I spent over 45 minutes just filming all of their stuff, and had to break it up into four different videos to highlight everything the best way possible. Let’s dive in and get this biggie started!
Our first video is purely about their next figures from their awesome “Aliens” and “Predator” series. Both lines are going strong this year, and their dioramas in the booth continue to be some of the best in the entire event. The seventh Alien series will happen this year along with the 15th Predator wave, which continues to take inspiration from the old Kenner line. “Alien 3” will also get some love this year, so take a look at some of my favorite figures that keep getting better.
In this video, we take a look at the new 1/4 scale 18-inch figures from the Marvel and DC licenses, including versions of Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk from “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, Batman and Superman from the upcoming “Batman VS Superman” film, Harley Quinn from the “Arkham Knight” video game, and a new version of Christian Bale’s Batman in this scale.
NECA has been doing a great job with their 1/6 scale figures as well, as we see in this video that shows some of their other offerings in this size. The Terminator line continues with a new version of Arnold from the first film, the revival of the Rocky figures (which will get new packages and a few new things this year), more figures from Pacific Rim (which may be coming to a close with no sequel in sights), and a surprise figure – Donatello from the 1990’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie! This figure might be one of the best things that was in their booth and went viral during the event, so see it from all angles here.
Finally, more TV & film franchises with figures from Quentin Tarantino’s “Hateful Eight” film, Starz “Ash VS Evil Dead” series, and a few others. The big hit here was the figures from “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures”, which will come with a paper diorama version of their phone booth. Another showstopper was their “Weird Al” Yankovic figure, which comes with two head sculpts and his accordion.
This video also shows off their new life-sized figures of Slimer, Batman, Arkham Knight, Freddy Fazbear, and a mini-version of the Staypuft Marshmallow Man, which buyers can add to their storefront or put in their home to scare away robbers. I hope they do a giant version of Robocop next!
