NECA Announces Jonah Hex Props and Figures

My first exposure to comics was through my uncle’s pile of DC comics. He mostly read three titles: Justice League of America, House of Secrets, and Jonah Hex. I’m psyched to see Hex make his way to the big screen, and now I’ll have the chance to add him to my toy shelves. We have more pics of the NECA Jonah Hex figures from Toy Fair.

Welcome Jonah Hex

NECA shows off first figures and props from the new movie!

Josh Brolin is Jonah Hex, a scarred bounty hunter with a chance at freedom from the warrants out on him. All he has to do is bring down Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich), who’s been planning to unleash hell on earth. Aided by the gun-toting prostitute Leila (Megan Fox), Jonah Hex sets out to secure his future and maybe just save all of ours in the process.

The film is out June 18, but you won’t have to wait nearly that long to get your hands on our first batch of goodies from Jonah Hex! NECA is proud to unveil an assortment of action figures and two movie props that are sure to start your summer blockbuster season off just right.

First up is the tomahawk hatchet that Jonah Hex uses in the movie. Our authentic replica is made of wood and metal, is 16″ in length and cast directly from a film-used prop. Obviously we don’t recommend throwing it or the hacking of anyone into tiny bits, but it certainly does look great on a shelf.

Next is the cane carried by Quentin Turnbull. Just like the one used on screen, our replica has an eagle head, is over three feet long and is made of wood and metal.

And last but not at all least, the action figures. Set to a 7″ scale, our first Jonah Hex assortment features Jonah Hex, Leila and Quentin Turnbull. Jonah comes with a pistol, his tomahawk, and a removable hat. Quentin features his cane, a pistol and removable hat and mask, and Leila comes with a pistol. That might seem like a lot of pistols, but hey, it’s a pistol-toting kind of movie.

Our line of Jonah Hex replicas and figures hits stores next month, but is available now for preorder and will also be featured on our Amazon storefront.

Toy Fair 2010 – NECA HeroClix, Player Select, and Movie Figures Pics

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. 😀
