Stefan Fulkins from NECA walks us through their booth at NY Toy Fair 2018. In this first part of the tour, we focus on the new action figures from the Alien VS Predator arcade game by Capcom, Kenner style Aliens figures including the new Apone, a deluxe Predator throne, and more Predator and Alien figures from the Dark Horse comics.
In this second part of the tour, we check out the amazing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles diorama that will be for sale later this year, new figures of both versions of Pennywise the Clown from “It,” and figures from Ash VS Evil Dead, Gremlins 2, and Friday the 13th.
In this third part of the tour, we look at some of their figures from video game licenses such as God of War, Team Fortress 2, Portal, and Half-Life, and the debuting Crash Bandicoot, figures from their Guillermo del Toro collection, and new 18-inch entries like Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, new deluxe Deadpool (with unicorn), Captain America, and Daredevil.
In case you want to watch the tour without any breaks, here is the full tour of NECA’s booth at NY Toy Fair 2018, as hosted by Stefan Fulkins.

NECA is always a personal favorite of mine to check out during NY Toy Fair 2017, and this year I had the pleasure of taking the booth tour with Summer, who gave us a ton of insight and tidbits about the many new products being released this year and beyond.
In this first video, check out some of the items featuring Ash VS Evil Dead (including a Slashy Ashy puppet), Daredevil, Doctor Strange, and Batman Returns in various scales.
That Doctor Strange will be a great addition to anyone collecting those 18-inch figures, and is a gateway figure for sure since I feel like I have been lured into picking that one up now.
In part two, we talk in-depth about the many new Aliens and Predator figures, including their Kenner style figures, “Predator” anniversary line, and more from these very popular series. We also see the first peek at their crossover with Dark Horse Comics and DC Comics, by giving us breath-taking figures from Batman VS Alien, Batman VS Predator, and Superman VS Alien. Your head may explode when you see these!
Finally, we see the completed set of their 18-inch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures, six-inch figures based on AMC’s “Preacher” TV show, and a new statue of Rocky and Mickey from the Brisk Iced Tea commercials (although legally they can not say that name since they do not have that license).
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!
