Toy Fair 2016: NECA on Major League Baseball

When you describe an action figure with a cloth outfit to people, you'll get several responses...the most common probably being "You mean a doll!" People from my generation would gleefully recall the MEGO figures they had as a kid. Those a bit older, 12 inch G.I.Joes and his similarly scaled brethren. Today, companies like NECA and Mezco are redefining what an action figure with a cloth outfit looks and feels like...and they are certainly upping the quality of these items 10 fold. Now NECA takes things a step further and throws professional sports into the mix. It's been a long while since someone shook up this action figure category. It's time for something new!

Thatnks to a tip from our friend Conor Brosnahan, we now know that NECA will be teaming up with Major League Baseball to create figures for baseball heavyweights:

Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs
Carlos Correa of the Houston Astros
Matt Harvey of the New York Mets
Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers
David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox
Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels

More to come as NY Toy Fair approaches!
