The reveals for NECA’s Planet of the Apes classic series are coming faster than Charlton Heston picking up the hottest mute chick on the planet. It’s all damn, dirty apes, for series 1. We’ll find out more at Toy Fair. Stay tuned!
Check out the new Planet of the Apes - Classic Series 1!
The #GorillaSoldier, #Cornelius, and Dr. #Zaius 7″ action figures are scheduled for release in July. For higher-res, individual photos head on over to https://twitter.com/NECA_TOYS

We knew that NECA had picked up the license for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but somehow missed that they’ve also got the rights for the classic films. They’ve shared two teasers so far of the classic line to arrive this summer. The Dr. Zaius shown is the paint master.
I’m wondering if this means we’ll be getting figures of Taylor or Nova, and not just those damn, dirty apes.
I am a sucker for action figures of primates – one day I’ll have to gather up all of the gorillas I’ve managed to acquire and take some pictures. Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the last movie installment in 2011, had some nicely articulated action figures of Caesar and Koba from a company called Hiya, but at the time they seemed a little expensive… a couple of years of price creep later and they don’t seem that way now.
But with NECA picking up the license for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, chances are we’ll see great sculpt, although I’m worried we might see a little bit less on the articulation side. I’ll just have to squint at that Sneak Peek video to try to see some more.

I am amazed that Entertainment Earth continues to have daily deals. Today’s is for a set of two figures from NECA’s Lone Ranger series for %25.20 (that’s 30%off) – and of course those two figures are of Tonto and the Lone Ranger. The second wave features a bird cage accessory for Tonto, and an unmasked head sculpt for the Lone Ranger.
What’s more amazing is that the pairing of Gore Verbinki and Johnny Depp produced such a dud. I suppose their collaboration on Pirates of the Caribbean declined throughout the series, but they had returned to form with Rango. But I guess when you make a Tonto movie and call it the Lone Ranger, it’s bound to disappoint a few people.
The Lone Ranger 7-Inch Series 2 Action Figure Set:
- The Lone Ranger and Tonto ride again!
- Detailed figures out of 2013′s western movie The Lone Ranger.
- Series 2 set includes 2 articulated action figures.
- You get Johnny Depp’s Tonto and Armie Hammer’s Lone Ranger!
- Featuring over 20 points of articulation, these Lone Ranger 7-Inch Action Figures are superbly detailed! They come to you from 2013′s western movie The Lone Ranger that stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, and with each remarkable figure standing 7-inches tall, they make terrific display pieces for home or work. Ride again with Tonto and The Lone Ranger! Ages 14 and up.
This Series 2 set contains 2 individually packaged action figures (subject to change):
- 1x Tonto with Birdcage
- 1x Lone Ranger Unmasked
Pose Native American spirit-warrior Tonto and Lone Ranger in nearly any way you wish!

I still haven’t seen Pacific Rim (no excuse now, since it’s out on DVD) so these action figures from NECA have just been cool to look at, versus must haves for my toy shelves. For those of you who love the NECA line, here’s news from NECA’s Twitter feed. Nothing yet on NECA’s website, but we’ll keep checking.
BIG news for fans of Pacific Rim!
Randy Falk dropped the news today in series of messages via @NECA_TOYS on Twitter. Here’s some of what he had to say:
“Pacific Rim Series 3 news will drop today. 2 different assortments of Jaeger and Kaiju offered at once. 4 new figures coming in March!!”
“2 ALL NEW Jaegers.. Cherno Alpha and Coyote Tango make up the Jaeger assortment. Almost 8″ tall and loaded w detail and articulation”
“The Kaiju require their own assortment as they getting bigger & badder & in turn cost a little more. S2 Leatherback gives you an idea…”
“We we want to stay true to scale as much as possible so a deluxe Kaiju assortment was the way to go. Bigger, more deco, more articulation!!”
“Trespasser will be one of the Series 3 Kaiju, in concept stage it was known as Axhead and you still might see that version at a later date..”
“The remaining S3 Kaiju is an all new & improved Knifehead w battle damage! Over 50% larger than S1 version!”

Catching Fire opens this Friday November 22. Back in July it was announced NECA would produce Catching Fire action figures for Katniss, Peeta and Finnick. Now they’re available and in stock at BigBadToyStore and temporarily out of stock at Entertainment Earth. You can get Katniss and Peeta separately or buy the trio as a set… and if you buy them all, maybe you can put it out of your mind that in the movie Jennifer Lawrence is a head taller than & towering over tiny little Josh Hutcherson, but I digress…
Speaking of digression and living up to my username, who’s up for some Capitol Couture? May the odds be ever in your favor…

A few weeks ago, our good friend Richard, aka ActionFiguresRule, from the MATRIX Photo Booth and AFR Studio sent me some quick pics for the Marvel Select Wolverine from Diamond Select Toys. He promised some follow-up pictures in more of a story format. And he sent them a little while back, and in all my glorious laziness I only got them posted today (sorry Richard!)
The cool thing is that he’s provided all the pictures for a great story, but left it up to you to fill in the rest. Have a great plot, or dialogue, or the whole deal? Leave it in the comments below. Have fun!
