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!”

So far, NECA’s been the main licensor of Pacific Rim, with action figures in the 7-inch and 18-inch varieties. With over $400MM in box office receipts, Play Imaginative has jumped on board with its Super Alloy diecast line. No word yet on which character(s) will be made in which scale, though I imagine Gispy Danger is a lock. Stay tuned!
Super Alloy Collectible Figure
Coming Soon in 2014

Pacific Rim Battle Damaged Crimson Typhoon by sabretooths_workshop – I love the battle-damaged paint job, but what really takes the cake are the motorized spinning blades and the light up eye, complete with separate switches and replaceable batteries – ends Aug 25, 2013 19:36:37 PDT
In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!

With its expansion into quarter scale figures, NECA has been able to add Marvel and DC movies (even the Batman classic TV series spawned a movie) to its impressive array of licensed action figures. They continue to own classic movies from my youth in the 7-inch scale, expanding its Alien, Predator, Robocop, Gremlins, and more. With the Lone Ranger, Kick-Ass, and Pacific Rim, they’re getting their piece of modern hits too.
On the video game front, they seem focused on Valve games. It’s interesting that they’re Valve split the figure license between NECA and 3A Toys – NECA has 7-inch scale and 3A has 12-inch. The Portal 2 robots are an example of figures that will be available in both scales. With Team Fortress 2, NECA has a broader assortment.
Fans of Playmates’ World of Springfield figures get a new assortment of Simpsons, as NECA has partnered with Fox on a line of 25 of the most iconic guest stars to celebrate 25 seasons of the long-running series. [/Ron]

After posting the Sideshow contest I started clicking around for more Pacific Rim info – somehow I missed the announcement last week for NECA’s giveaway. They’re now in week two of giveaways for four NECA Pacific Rim prize packs. The action figures look great, but I’m most thrilled about the HeroClix. I like the idea of scale reversal – to the Heroclix kaiju I’m monster-sized!
