Welp, looks like we have a preview of some of NECA’s new licenses that will be announced at Toy Fair 2013. NECA will be joining the fray of Superman: Man of Steel merchandising with their own quarter-scale (18″) fully articulated Superman. This was revealed in a press release from Warner Brothers on their merchandising tie-ins going in to Toy Fair 2013:
[box style=”note”]Enthusiasts also won’t want to miss statues from Sideshow Collectibles; authentic prop replicas from Noble Collection; an 18-inch articulated figure from NECA; fun, stylized plush and vinyl figures from Funko; and high-end creations from Kotobukiya and SquareEnix, to name a few.[/box]
NECA is now doing 18″ figures from Marvel, DC, Lord of the Rings, Predator, and various horror franchises. Those are some impressive licenses being done in such a large scale.
In more surprising news NECA will be doing quarter-scale figures from the Adam West Batman series! I would assume they will be tackling Batman first, but the article leaves it a bit ambiguous:
[box style=”note”]Additional licensees supporting the Batman Classic TV Series include Funko with stylized figures and plush; Mezco with colorfully detailed vinyl figures; NECA with an 18-inch action figure; Round 2 with model kits; Cryptozoic Entertainment with trading cards; and a variety of high-end collectibles from Noble Collection, Sideshow Collectibles, TriForce, Kotobukiya, Medicom and Hot Toys.[/box]
Again there is a lot of info on all the Warner Bros. licenses that will be shown at Toy Fair 2013. So feel free to check out the article and I will continue to disect and bring any information as available.
