And NECA prepare for SDCC 2013 with two new monster(ish) figures

May 15th, 2013 by Declan McCaffrey Comments

Comic-con is creeping up on us yet again, and NECAs exclusives for the show are usually stand-outs.

They’ve announced TWO exclusives so far, and whilst they are quite dependant on old tooling, times are tough, and these are still nice figures to see happening.

First up, and hot on the tail of the madly successful ‘Big Red’ Predator from fan-made Dead-End, is the Albino Predator. Yes, we’ve seen the sculpt before, but it has a striking, stand out paint app.

Secondly, and this one is an odd one, is Jason Voorhees as he was seen in the 8-Bit NES Friday the 13th game!

Amazingly, I questioned them on Twitter a few weeks ago if this was a possibility, and they hinted strongly it would happen. Well, here it is folks. Contains axe, knife, glow in the dark hands feet and mask, and encased with an NES game style packaging.

Admit it, this is one repaint you want!

Expect both these to reach our shores shortly after Comic-Con. NECA always put aside limited stock for European fans.

Comic-Con International: San Diego returns to the San Diego Convention Center with a Preview Night on Wednesday, July 17, then running Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21.

I have a life long love of two things - movies and action figures. Sit me down, stick Stars Wars in the Blu Ray player and jam a Darth Vader figure in my hand and I will remain silent and happy. A collector for over 20 years I keep up to date with toy news and purchases at an unhealthy rate and spend to far too much time and money on articulated bits of plastic. If collecting toys isn't enough, I'm also a huge WWE fan, though I'm suspiciously less vocal about that....
