NECA always has one of the most diverse booths at Toy Fair, and this year was no different. From Bob Ross in cartoon form to some first time Alien figures, there was just about everything you could imagine in the NECA booth this year.
First up was one of the biggest surprises of the show, and that’s the new DC prop license NECA has secured. It has a load of props planned, and the ones from the Batman: The Animated Series are a sight to behold.
Here’s the breakdown so far.
Batman: The Animated Series Props
- Harley’s cork gun
- Batman’s grapnel gun
- Mr. Freeze’s gun
Batman ’89 Props
- Grapnel gun
- Line launcher
Batman Beyond Props
Arkham City Props
- Nightwing Eschrima Sticks
These products were shown off very early and no prices or release dates have been announced as of yet.
There is a lot of retro animated fare on the way from NECA in 2020. The company showed off a new line of Defends of the Earth figures that looked fantastic. No release date or pricing information was available as of yet.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be getting more animated series themed figures, as well as new figures from the video games and the second film. There was a lot of Turtle goodness to be had to be sure. Before you ask, however, the Secret of the Ooze Casey Jones will not have a removable hockey mask we’re sorry to say.
NECA will also be launching a new line called Toony Classic which will include figures – and possibly a vehicle – based on the Back to the Future cartoon. They will also be joined by a toon version of Bob Ross, Ace Ventura, and toon representations of Bill & Ted.
Although 2019 was the 40th anniversary of Alien the party continues at NECA with new figures. This includes, for the first time ever, figures of Kane and Ash as the company was able to get likeness rights from the actors.
Predator 2 is about to celebrate another anniversary, and NECA is celebrating by finishing up the Lost Tribe from the end of the film. Those that didn’t have helmets before will now, and those that didn’t have faces before will now receive them. As for the diorama, NECA is considering a potential rerelease.
Two new Godzillas are on the way from the 1989 and 2003 films.
A couple new Gremlins are inbound, but the impressive diorama in the booth was for exhibit only we’re afraid.
NECA will continue to explore horror with John from They Live (We asked if he would come with bubble gum, but we were informed he was all out), Ghost Face from Scream, and Victor Crowley.
A new wave of Toony Terrors are coming to haunt your cute dreams this year with Bettlejuice, Victor Crowley, Sam from Trick R’ Treat, and Regan from The Exorcist.
And, finally, you know you need a Chia Pet of The Child from The Mandalorian.
It does feel as though NECA truly has something for everyone this year.
