If you’re not feeling NECA’s new Batsu vinyl figures for Gears of War, rest assured that they are still making action figures. Dead Space joins NECA’s Player Select line with two Isaac Clarke figures that will feature light-up masks.
NECA’s premiere series to fill Dead Space on shelves worldwide
In Dead Space, it’s the 26th Century and you’re Isaac Clarke, an engineer sent to repair the interplanetary mining ship USG Ishimura, near the planet Aegis VII. Seems simple enough — another day, another dollar — until the whole thing gets shot to hell and you end up having to fight for your live against zombified Necromorphs while simultaneously uncovering a conspiracy involving the Church of Unitology and wondering just where your girlfriend, Nicole Brennan, who was assigned as a medical specialist to the Ishimura could have got off to.
Sounds like the makings of some serious trouble, but fortunately ol’ Isaac’s got a pressurized suit that along with keeping him alive, goes great with his plasma cutter, flamethrower and ripper. The EA game was a Game Informer game of the month and has picked up numerous awards for its sound design, atmosphere and overall quality. NECA is proud to reveal two new figures of Isaac Clarke based on his appearance in Dead Space.
Both the standard Isaac with the plasma cutter and the bloody variant with the ripper come with a light up LED mask and back and over 20 points of articulation. With ball joints at the neck, shoulders, wrists and ankles as well as ball hinges at the knees and elbows, left swivel biceps, a swivel waist and T crotch with hinged swivel hips, Isaac has the flexibility to take on whoever — and whatever — he might encounter aboard the Ishimura.
NECA’s Dead Space figures are available September 2009 in stores and online at our own Amazon storefront. Stay tuned to necaonline.com for more info on this and other lines from your favorite games and movies.
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!
Visiting the NECA booth last week at San Diego Comic-Con, I was disappointed to not see more Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and not until after the show did I find out why. I am not familiar with many of NECA’s licensed video game properties. Sure, I know Street Fighter, but my gaming in my old age is limited to NHL games. Still, there’s lots to appreciate here just from an action figure fan perspective.
Bio Shock – Industrial from TheFwoosh.com really dug these – he hasn’t played the game either.
Coinciding with the release of Activision’s new open world action game, Prototype, NECA has released a figure of Prototype’s hero, Alex Mercer. Given the character’s freerunning abilities, I would have hoped for a more articulated figure, but NECA has seemed to go back and forth on how much articulation they’ll be putting into the Player Select line.
Ready Your Devastator Attack
NECA’s First Prototype Figure Takes Shape!
Just in time for the June 9 release of Activision’s new hit game Prototype, NECA Player Select unveils our very first figure for it: lead character Alex Mercer!
The scene is New York City and a mutating virus has just been unleashed in Penn Station (how would you know? — heyo!). Alex wakes up in the hospital, unable to remember anything, but soon learns he has the ability to modify his genetic code at will and attains superhuman powers.
With some help along the way, Alex begins to unravel the conspiracy surrounding the release of the virus and ultimately clashes with the likes of the military and secret government enforcers, all the while battling through the hordes of deformed New Yorkers using his newfound strength, agility and shape-shifting.
The fate of the city and ultimately the world beyond is up to you as the player, but however it turns out, NECA’s Alex Mercer features his morphing bladed right arm and ball-jointed neck, shoulders, torso, and wrists, and comes in a collector-grade clamshell package — ready for the fight of his life.
