It seems like every other Friday NECA likes to give us all a little “behind the scenes” peek at what they are up to. And if you have been keeping up with NECA, you will know they are up to a lot. So far today they have shown off their Series 7 Predators: Big Red and the Camo Cloaked Falconer, and the Deacon from Prometheus with all of his pack-ins. Let’s start off with the one I am most excited about:
You may remember the Deacon from Prometheus as the “proto-alien” that hatches out of the dead Engineer after Shaw and David leave the planet. Well, NECA thought he was cool enough to get his own figure. They are also using this as an opportinty to package him with a bunch of creatures and props from the film! Included with the Deacon will be the severed Engineer head with removable mask and two bendy Hammerpedes. I’m excited to see the final product and I’m glad they are getting so much out of Prometheus.
I guess I was one of the few that really dug the movie.
Next up we have RELEASE DATES! These are for the NECA Toys “R” Us exclusives and you can expect them to hit the stores fairly close to the time listed. For a full run-down of the exclusives and pictures check out our previous report.
