I have been having killer luck lately when it comes to finding NECA goodness in the wild. On my weekly Target visit I found the new Predator wave and just one Ultimate Gremlin hiding behind some T2 figures. I grabbed the gremlin and will have to wait on the Predators, you can only afford so much.
In case you haven’t noticed, we are sort of changing our focus to mostly unboxings and actual in hand pictures and reviews.
That said, on to our next half assed review. I missed a few weeks at my local comic shop so I was already bracing for the higher total. Keeping that in mind I tried hard to do anything beside walk in, get my pull box and leave. But of course, the devil popped up on my shoulder and told me to go to check out the NECA section. You know, for market research. (more…)
Popeye has a long history and has always been popular. Ever since his first appearance in 1929, Popeye has been one of the most recognizable pop culture icons. Thanks to him, spinach consumption increased 33% in between 1931-36.
Even though I knew I liked Popeye, this was the figure I never knew I wanted. As popular as he is in print media and marketing, there aren’t too many action figures of him. That’s why it’s refreshing to see companies like Mezco take a crack at it. They not only got a hit, but a home run with this one. For your usual One:12 Collective price you get a really great figure with some pretty cool accessories.
I was finally able to find NECA’s Ultimate Michael Myers at my local Target. Like everyone else, I was excited to see the Halloween license return to NECA, sort of. Looking at how great this Michael Myers came out people immediately started asking when they could expect Michael from other installments in the Halloween franchise. Well unfortunately they just have the license for the newly released 2018 Halloween movie, so we won’t be seeing those anytime soon. (more…)
Living in a large city has a few benefits. It increases your odds for scoring Target exclusives like the NECA Thermal Vision Fugitive Predator. It didn’t take me long to find one on shelves, finding it at the third Target in my area. Once out of the box this figure is truly a gem. (more…)
