Toy Fair 2012: NECA's New Jasons & More

NECA have been dream makers for some time now, and if you think that opening sentiment is silly, you are NOT a hardcore horror fan! What other company would do the leads from Lost Boys, Robocop, the first Terminator AND an entire line of Gremlins in both cute n fuzzy and mean n scary forms?! Now NECA get back to the core horror icons with a new release of a 7 inch action figure of Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th part 3! We expect him to start surfacing around June of 2012. Since Freddy Krueger got a full line of figures all to himself, we can expect Jason to get the same love. Further evidence of this comes from NECA's own twitter where they revealed a head for one of their Jason figures that looks more from Part 4 than Part 3!

NECA will have tons of new plastics to show off at the NY Toy Fair in around three weeks. Their lineup includes...

(highlighted bits are links for lots of eye candy!)

Three Hunger Games Action Figures (Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark & Gale Hawthorne) and various nicknacks
Bioshock - Infinite figures
Valve figures (from Portal, Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead & Half Life)
Assassins Creed - Revelations
Gears of War 3
E.T. figures and other awesome collectibles
Gremlins (and also HERE)
Evil Dead
Rocky (with future releases of Ivan Drago & Clubber Lang)
...annnnd the show stopper...NEW licenses for quarter scale figures including Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Alien & Bioshock Infinite!

Keep watching Idle Hands, where it is going to be Toy Fair all damn day for the foreseeable future!

Pre-Order the Evil Dead 2 Series 1 7-Inch Action Figure Set!


  1. Man that Jason looks awesome!! Not sure about the Evil dead figs. Great sculpt no articulation :(

    Oh and hey Nomad Gollum linked your blog for us at Purgatory (a few alumni's reside there)

    Hope all is well bud?

  2. We'll see on articulation. NECA has been stepping it up lately. Swivel hips and no knees sure do make me sad though. Maybe if we make ennough noise they'll make a super posable one just for us??!! I can dream.

    Nice to hear from you! Things are good...just burried neck deep in toy fair at the moment. Tell the guys I said hi!

  3. NECA Rocky looks fantastic. And Ash is a must buy.
