Check out all the new toys we saw at NECA’s booth during NY Toy Fair 2019. Featured here are toys from Karate Kid, Golden Girls, It, Alien: Resurrection, Halloween, Alien VS Predator, Friday the 13th, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Godzilla (classic and new movie), and more.
We also did two live streams with them of everything in the booth (including some things not shown here) – one on Saturday during the show, and another the following day with a booth rep (video quality is rough in that one, but audio is very good and informative).

My adrenaline has been pumping all week with Toy Fair 2019 news, and today is the final day before the big show. The news keeps on coming, and while we want to save some things for this weekend, this was an item we could not wait on.
Icon Heroes, who is known more for their bobbleheads, statues, prop replicas/ office supplies, are getting into the action figure market. Their first venture will be the 1984 classic movie “The Karate Kid”.
These 1/12 scale figures come with swappable hands and hands, and a ton of articulation.
No price or release date has been announced for these yet, nor if they will be sold individually or as a two-pack.
The last company to make Karate Kid figures was Funko with their ReAction figures. This year, the 35th anniversary of this movie, we are getting figures not just from Icon Heroes, but also from NECA.
Below is the full list of all of Icon Heroes announcements ahead of Toy Fair:
Karate Kid 6 inch Action FiguresFrom the hit 1984 film The Karate Kid comes Daniel Larusso and Johnny Lawrence 6 inch scale action figures! Each action figure features an incredible likeness of the actors along with a whopping 29 points of articulation, additional heads and hands for maximum poseability and fun!
Robotech 12 inch Scale StatuesOur new line of Robotech 12 inch scale polystone statues feature iconic VF Battloids with rotating head and additional arms that can be posed at many different positions. Each statue stands on an insignia base, is hand painted, individually numbered and includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
Golden Girls BobbleheadsRose, Dorothy, Blanche, and Sophia are getting the bobblehead treatment with our 8 inch scale bobbleheads! Look for different versions of each character!
Chilling Adventures of SabrinaWe will be producing statues/non-articulated figurines, cloth action figures, and bobbleheads of characters from the hit Netflix show Chilling Adventures of Sabrinastarting with Sabrina herself! Look for different iterations of the teenage witch and other popular characters!
RiverdaleWe will be producing statues/non-articulated figurines, cloth action figures, and bobbleheads of characters from the hit CW series Riverdale starting with Archie, Jughead, Veronica, and Betty! More characters and different versions of each character will follow.
FriendsWe will be producing statues/non-articulated figurines of characters from one of the all-time classic comedy series Friends. Look for different versions of Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey!
You don’t have to send this version of Daniel LaRusso home in a body bag. Instead, he can come home with YOU, and in a window box package, along with his arch rival, Johnny Lawrence – courtesy of NECA and their new action figure two pack.
Just announced on NECA’s facebook page, the company unveiled two new eight-inch MEGO style action figures from the 1984 classic, “The Karate Kid”. Featuring superb likeness of Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, this set includes some very great accessories (including the famous All Valley Karate Championships backdrop with referee Bob Wall ready to start the fight), and is very tempting to a fan of the series like myself.
Check out the NECA Karate Kid two-pack photo gallery below:
From The #KarateKid, the iconic ‘80s film that sent a generation of kids rushing to enroll in karate classes!
These clothed action figures show Daniel and Johnny in their karate uniforms, ready to compete in the All-Valley Karate Championships. Included in the 2-pack is a trophy accessory, replica poster and floor mat. Each fully articulated figure stands approximately 8″ tall and features an authorized likeness.
Window box packaging == Shipping Date: Q3 2019
Expect to see more images and footage of this and more during NY Toy Fair 2019, where we will have extensive coverage of NECA’s booth.
Speaking of the Karate Kid franchise, have you watched the “Cobra Kai” show on Youtube yet? It’s only available through Youtube’s premium (AKA paid) service, but they were kind enough to leave the series premiere available for free for all to watch.
