UK Toyfair: NEW Toys for Tron, Predators, Jonah Hex, How to Train Your Dragon and The Last Airbender
The first bits of info are coming in from UK toyfair, so as we sort it out, I thought we'd start with items we didn't know were coming.
We knew NECA has the new Nightmare on Elm Street and is currently slated to put out human and burned up Freddy Krueger figures. We also knew they were doing Perseus from the new Clash of the Titans movie and perhaps a second version of him, at the very least. What we didn't know is they also have the new Predators movie and Jonah Hex! I'm sort of cold on the whole Pred/Alien thing, but Jonah Hex toys from NECA has me grinning from ear to ear. Couldn't think of a more perfect match! NECA also will continue current lines with Twilight: Eclipse, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and their popular Cult Classics line. NECA also expands their Wizkids Clix line with HaloClix!
As for Tron, Spin Master has the goods with 3 3/4 action figures and a big baddy whose head has inner projection to show FX from the new movie. Sources say Spin Master also had "How to Train Your Dragon" and "The Last Airbender" toys. The Airbender toys are said to be a small line, but it contains a "lovely Appa".
