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. 😀

NECA BioShock 2 Big Sister and Little Sister Two-Pack


With the upcoming release of BioShock 2 this Tuesday, February 9th, let’s have a look at NECA’s BioShock 2: Big Sister and Little Sister 2-pack. Now I have to admit I never played the first game (I plan to though!), so I have no idea what BioShock’s story is, but when I saw these at my local Toys R’ Us, I couldn’t resist and I decided to pick this set up. The character designs just look too awesome to ignore! I was also curious about the articulation and I was hoping they weren’t going to be statues. I loved what NECA had done with Street Fighter and Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa in regards to articulation, and I was hoping they did the same to these figures.

Bio Shock Press Pics

We first saw the new Bio Shock figures at San Diego Comic-Con, where my friend Industrial went gaga over them.  He never played the game, but I’m betting he’ll be buying these.  He’s also trying to get me hooked on World War Robot and the new 1/12 scale figures from 3A Toys, but so far I’m resisting!

Who’s Your Big Daddy?

BioShock returns with a new game and new figures!


It’s 1970, 10 years after the original BioShock. We’re back in BioShock 2 in the dystopian underwater city of Rapture, but now it’s controlled by Sophia Lamb, whose message of collective conscious is spread by a priest-turned-cult-leader. Additionally, to maintain order in the city, Lamb has created an army of Big Daddy-like enforcers called Big Sisters and sent them to abduct little girls from towns on the Atlantic Coast and bring them back to Rapture to create new Little Sisters.

Suddenly, the prototype Big Daddy from the original production line reactivates with no recollection of what’s happened in the past 10 years. After scouring the city in a vain attempt to find the Little Sister he was originally paired with, he realizes Sophia Lamb’s evil plan and seeks to overthrow Lamb and her army of Big Sisters.

BioShock 2 doesn’t release until next year, but NECA has already begun celebrating the sequel to the original 2K Games smash with a sneak preview deluxe figure of the Big Daddy Bouncer, which is in stores now! Our BioShock 2 line officially kicks off in January with the Series 1 assortment:

Subject Delta (formerly the Big Daddy player) is highly detailed and over 7″ tall, has removable hoses and backpack tanks, an interchangeable drill arm, and ball joints at the shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees and ankles.


Big Sister is of similarly massive 7″-plus proportion and detail. She has a removable backpack with a cage basket just the right size for capturing a Little Sister and ball joints at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees ankles and ab crunch.

Finally, Little Sister has an ADAM syringe and ball jointed neck and shoulders, hinged elbows and knees and a v-crotch. And yes, she does actually fit in Big Sister’s basket.

There will be a Toys R Us exclusive two-pack with Big Sister and Little Sister packaged together, and even more BioShock 2 announcements to follow, including details on the EVE Hypo light-up replica and the Big Daddy plush doll, as seen on the Xbox Live Marketplace and in the BioShock 2 ad campaign!

Of course, keep it tuned to and our Amazon storefront for more on BioShock 2 and other lines from your favorite games and movies.

NECA Army of Two Figures Available for Pre-Order

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 Announces Dante Figure from Dante’s Inferno Video Game

I admit that I hadn’t heard of this game prior to this announcement, but that’s nothing new.  As you may know, I am a big fan of superposeable figures, so seeing that Dante would have 30 points was very welcome.  Those red strips of cloth are a tapestry that Dante has sewn into his skin, so it’ll be interesting to see how NECA handles that – right now it looks like a mix of fabric and plastic elements.

To Hell and Back

Dante’s Inferno just got hotter

In the upcoming EA third person adventure, Dante’s Inferno, you are Dante. Death has come to steal your love Beatrice’s soul and take her to Hell — but on his way out, you grab his scythe and follow behind. As in Dante Alighieri’s epic poem, The Divine Comedy, the poet Virgil guides Dante through the circles of Hell, encountering the embodiments of the seven deadly sins along the way. In the video game, he rides on the backs of demons and slashes his way through each circle on his way to Beatrice, who is being held by Lucifer himself.

To celebrate this slab of videogameular awesomeness, NECA is proud to unveil our first Dante figure. Boasting 30 points of articulation, Dante is truly one of a kind. He carries a Cross in a sheath on his right hip, has an interchangeable right hand, and then, of course, there’s the scythe…

An imposing site in itself, Death’s scythe stands over eight inches tall! Not only that, but the blade is detachable for hand-held use. It might just be the coolest videogame weapon ever, and it’s definitely given its due with the Dante figure. The Inferno will never be the same.

Dante’s Inferno will be released February 9, 2010 on PS3, Xbox 360 and PSP. Our Dante figure hits stores after Xmas and will also be available at our Amazon storefront.
