While I didn’t speak to anyone at the NECA booth (everyone looked very busy), I did take some pictures of their action figures in HeroClix, Player Select video games, and movie license categories, excluding Harry Potter and Twilight. Sorry, fans of those two franchises – I couldn’t bring myself to do it. 😀
I haven’t played this game, but saw the figures at San Diego Comic-Con and they looked cool. The articulation looks a little lacking – every action-oriented video game figure ought to be super-poseable, at least in my humble opinion!
Army of Two Head into Battle
Because you can’t have just one.
EA’s upcoming sequel to the smash game Army of Two, dubbed Army of Two: The 40th Day, takes place a few years after the original. Main characters Tyson Rios and Elliot Salem are mercenaries leading the company TransWorld Operations (TWO), and when a competing force starts reaking havoc in the city, it’s up to Rios and Salem to stop them the only way they know how: with huge, awesome-looking, customizable guns.
To celebrate Army of Two: The 40th Day’s upcoming January release, NECA is now taking preorders for our first Army of Two figures — Tyson Rios and Elliot Salem!
Each of these highly detailed and poseable figures is armed to the teeth with an assault rifle, a sniper rifle and a pistol. No worries if it’s too much to carry since the weapons attach to the figures’ back. Also included are the individual masks that Rios and Salem wear in the game — pivoting up and down to give them a better look at the action.
Tyson Rios and Elliot Salem are available for preorder now and will also be available at our Amazon storefront.
NECA has blogged about their San Diego Comic-Con experience. I’ve included an excerpt of the toy-related stuff, but be sure to follow the link to the entire post, where they cover some of the movie activity (they hosted a signing with the cast and crew of “9”) and even poke a little fun at Randy Falk, their Director of Product Development.
Well friends, we’ve somehow managed to do it again. NECA has made it through another SDCC. Things on the left coast couldn’t have gone better, to be quite honest. All our exclusives sold well, especially the surprise addition of the Heroclix Thor’s Mighty Chariot (limited quantities are still available on the cheap from us at our Amazon.com Store), we world debuted new figures from BioShock, and unveiled the latest from Gears of War, Army of Two, Twilight: New Moon, Dante’s Inferno, 9, and Boondock Saints — and even showed off our brand new BATSU line of specially designed stylized figures, showing off the likes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Insane Clown Posse, Gears of War and Street Fighter!
