Did you see Star Trek Into Darkness yet? I just did (I know I’m late!) and thoroughly enjoyed it. If you’re not a Trek fan or your movie partner isn’t, no worries – my mom, who is definitely not a Trekkie, took me to see it and loved it!
In any case, IMAX is holding a Star Trek Into Darkness sweepstakes that includes a bunch of Trek gear, including the Hasbro KRE-O Enterprise ($49.99) and the NECA Star Trek Into Darkness Connect with Pieces puzzle ($12.99). If that’s not enough, the grand prize includes official uniforms, the Star Trek video game from Namco Bandai, and a bunch more.
It’s open until the end of the month, so enter the IMAX giveaway now. » There’s more… click to continue reading Win Star Trek Gear from Hasbro, NECA, and More from IMAX
Marvel Legends Executioner by Stevid – while the Wrecking Crew might be a bit oversized, I hope that when Hasbro finally gets around to making the Executioner that they reuse that body – in the meantime, here’s your chance to add this essential Thor baddie to your collection – ends May 22, 2013 18:30:15 PDT
In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!

The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, opens July 3 in the US, but the 7-inch action figures from NECA are available now. NECA has singles of the Lone Ranger and Tonto on their eBay store. Anyone heard anything about a 3.75-inch line?
There’s a lot more action figures available on the NECA eBay store.
It was a slow day for AFP yesterday, as I was on the road taking my wife and her mom to Las Vegas as a little Mother’s Day celebration. As we were sitting at the gate waiting to board the plane, I thought about action figures of mothers. And came up with one. Pamela Voorhees, from Friday the 13th, was the only one I could recall. And actually, there were at least two made of her. In 2005, NECA came out with deluxe set for the movie’s 25th anniversary, with Jason and his dear old mom (pictured above, courtesy of BigBadToyStore). Sideshow made a 1/6 scale version – see Michael Crawford’s review of Pamela Voorhees.
So, what other mothers deserve action figures? Before getting called to board the plane, I came up with three.

We just saw the tweaks NECA is making to their 18-inch Adam West Batman, and they’ve now released a preview of their upcoming quarter scale Henry Cavill Superman from Man of Steel. While I’m not as taken with the likeness on this figure as I am with the one on Mattel’s Man of Steel Movie Masters, nevertheless I am thoroughly impressed with the rest of the sculpt and the amount of articulation (30+ points!) we’re seeing in a figure this size. (Click on the image for the full view.)
I imagine that this figure will see tweaks, just like the Adam West Batman did, so I’m not too concerned about the likeness at this point. NECA says this massive 18-inch+ Man of Steel figure is due out in July.

NECA teased some upgrades to the 18-inch Adam West Batman that already looked impressive when we saw it at Toy Fair. In addition to some tweaks to the head sculpt, it looks like Bats will come with Batusi hands and fists. And could it be? Is that a Burt Ward Robin head sculpt at his feet? Also, you’ve gotta love the kitbashes the guys in the studio have come up with. (Click on the image for the full view.)
Since Toy Fair we refined the head & added multiple pairs of hands. Super poseable too. Check this out & enjoy – Adam West

NECA has been kicking ass with its ass-kicking Predator figures, and just like Predators series 8 (Entertainment Earth), the ninth wave has got a Double Dutch helping.

Yes, I still have Toy Fair pictures, and I need a break from all the Iron Man hoopla. And what could be a better respite from hi-tech armor than an old-fashioned gunslinger and his faithful Indian companion? I’d hoped by now to hear more about NECA’s Lone Ranger toys, but I suppose with the movie pushed back to a July 3 opening, we still have a couple of weeks before we should start to see some product hit retail shelves.
At Toy Fair, NECA promoted two lines – one in 7-inch scale and one in 1/4 scale (like the NECA 1/4 scale Batman figures). What they had on display, however, was a bit confusing. I don’t think the larger figures are the 1/4 scale figures – they looked a little too small for that to me. I actually think those are 2-ups for the 7-inch figures. Entertainment Earth and BigBadToyStore have the 7-inchers estimated to arrive some time in May.
