FTN rounds up the SDCC toy exclusives for 2012 (PT3)

July 2nd, 2012 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

NECA is an American toy company who specialise in collectibles licensed from music, film, TV & the video gaming industry. Their impressive CV includes characters from Terminator, Nightmare on Elm Street, Robocop, Resident Evil, Assassin’s Creed and Gears of War amongst others.

To mark the 25th anniversary of Evil Dead 2 NECA have brought out action figures from the cult classic. This Hero From the Sky Ash is the first to feature the iconic modified right hand chainsaw complete with rocky terrain base.

Eagle vision, the sixth sense certain lineages of humans possess as a result of being created by the First Civilisation. A gift that enables those who possess it to instinctively sense how people and objects relate to them – blue indicates allies. This SDCC exclusive features a blue tinged Ezio with eagle and stand.

Dream Child Freddy from Nightmare on Elm Street 5 comes with a comic book cut-out of Mark Grey, the comic book artist whom Kreuger turns into paper and slices into pieces.

Onyx Theron are the elite of the elite in the Locust Horde that serve under General RAAM. This menacing Elite Theron figure comes with torquebow and 14 points of articulation.

From Predators 2 comes this Cloaked City Hunter Predator. There have been a couple of cloaked Predator figures in the past and this has been seen as a bit of a disappointment from fans who were expecting more from NECA for their SDCC Predator offering.

And lastly, limited to 500 pieces, is the Cave Johnson signature edition of ASHPD. Following the popularity of the original Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device comes this prop replica from the computer game Portal. 250 pieces will be available at SDCC, the other 250 pieces will be available through www.necaclub.com.

As part of a NECA SDCC pack, which also includes the 5 action figures above, www.necaclub.com are giving their US fans not attending this years SDCC the opportunity to purchase the exclusives for $335.00 plus shipping.
