For our final Toy Fair image article, we’re doing a huge roundup of NECA toy images. While they’re making figures/toys for all the regular movies and TV shows you’d expect, the highlight of NECA’s 2013 lineup is the 60′s Batman featuring Adam West! The reason it’s taken so long to get an Adam West Batman is lawyers. From what I’ve been told, Warner Bros. owns Batman, while 20th Century Fox owns the show. For years the two companies have been trying to work out an agreement to release DVDs/Blu-rays and new merchandise with little success. However, late last year, the two companies finally worked out a deal and 2013 should see a lot of new toys and hopefully a home video release. Which is great news for the fans.
In addition to checking out the first 60′s Batman toy in quite some time, you can also see new toys for Aliens, A Christmas Story, Captain America, Michael Keaton’s Batman, Carrie, Gremlins, E.T., Harry Potter, Hulk, Iron Man, Pacific Rim, Predator, Prometheus, Scarface, Rambo, The Hobbit, The Hunger Games, Thor, and a lot more.
This weekend, we’ve been showing you toys from Toy Fair 2013 including action figures for Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 3, and more. It’s all about the merchandising, and if you’re going to get reasonably-priced action figures, you can’t do much better than NECA. The toymaker has released images for some of their big 2013 toys with a look at their figures for The Lone Ranger and Kick-Ass 2. The figures look good, but they also provide our first look at Kick-Ass 2‘s villain, “The Motherfucker” (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), formerly Red Mist. It’s a wild costume, I’m curious to see what it looks like in real life.
Hit the jump to check out the toys. The Lone Ranger opens July 3rd. Kick-Ass 2 opens June 28th.
Yesterday, we reported that toymaker NECA was planning to release action figures based on Aliens as well as a replica of the gravity gun from Half-Life. Now they have even more good stuff on the ways: Django Unchained dolls! Yes, you can play in your very own Big House with dolls for Django (Jamie Foxx), Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), Butch (James Remar), Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson), and Broomhilda (Kerry Washington). While NECA are calling these “action figures”, these toys are dolls. Dolls have cloth clothing. The only thing missing is a pull string that makes the dolls utter racial epithets.
