Cryptic Collectibles: Retro-Styled Horror Film Figures from NECA!

on May 17, 2014 | Leave a comment

Though it manufactures a variety of merchandise, including board games, masks, stationary, replica props items and “Head Knocker” bobblehead figures, the National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) is perhaps best known for putting out fantastically detailed and ultra-realistic action figures derived from various film, television and video game properties. The company has made horror collectors very happy over the years with plastic renderings of such iconic characters as Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, Leatherface, the Tall Man, Chucky, Ash, Pinhead, Ghost Face, Jigsaw and his puppet, Billy, The Exorcist’s Regan, Hannibal Lecter, Bubba Ho-Tep, and many others.

Now, NECA has tapped into the very hot retro toy market with its recent release of 8-inch tall horror film-themed figures created in the same vein as the classic Mego dolls of the 1970s and early ’80s.

Cryptic Collectibles: Super7 & Funko’s ALIEN “ReAction” Figures!

on March 25, 2014 | Leave a comment

A little over a year ago, I posted a piece here about an upcoming set of retro-styled Alien-themed action figures. Now, while Ridley Scott’s classic 1979 film has spawned numerous figures and other collectibles through the years, what made these particular items noteworthy is that they were based upon prototypes created by iconic toy manufacturer Kenner in 1979 for a proposed Alien toy line that was never produced.

Well, these “lost toys” have now since been released, and they are pretty darn fantastic.
