NECA is responsible for bringing us some of the coolest action figures from blockbuster genre films like Predator, Halloween, Alien, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Child’s Play, Godzilla, Gremlins, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and countless more. But they’ve also given us action figures for movies that don’t usually get any collectible action figures, such as A Christmas Story, Pan’s Labyrinth, Home Alone, The Hateful Eight, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Now one more is one the way.
Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is the movie that turned Jim Carrey into a comedy superstar, and it sparked what would become what might be the most lucrative comedy career of the 1990s. NECA previously immortalized the standard version of Ace Ventura as an action figure, complete with animal accessories and his trademark tacky clothing made of real cloth. But now they’re giving us a much better version of Ace Ventura from when he pretends to need psychiatric care at the Shady Acres mental hospital. Read More »
NECA’s new line of Gremlins action figures has been a blessing for fans who want as many of the little monsters as possible with all the appropriate accessories. This past holiday season brought us two different sets of caroling Gremlins, and a new Ultimate Gremlin before that came with soda, beer, cigarettes, candy, and more. Now NECA is releasing the Ultimate Flasher Gremlin, complete with a trenchcoat and sunglasses, as well as a slew of other accessories from the wild bar scene in the horror comedy. Read More »
Michael Myers gets all the glory when it comes to the Halloween franchise, especially when it comes to collectibles. But many horror fans have defended Halloween 3: Season of the Witch as time has gone on, even without the masked slasher at the center of it. Now NECA is letting the horror sequel have its day in the sun with a new three-pack action figure set featuring the trick or treating kids who have their Halloween turned upside down when costume masks enchanted by mystical powers threaten their young lives.

A couple years ago, NECA released an exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles box set featuring the animated versions of the characters from their own series that ran from 1987 through 1996. It was a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, but NECA eventually released the figures as two-packs that you could only buy at Target. They’ve been a little difficult to get ahold of in stores, never listed on Target’s website, and the secondary market has a mark-up of about 50% (if not more) if you try to find them.
Thankfully, NECA has released a second wave of animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures as two-packs that you can get only at Target. They repackage the heroes in a half-shell, with a slightly different paint job, and there are two new villain two-packs this time, including the dimwitted mutant duo Bebop and Rocksteady and a couple Foot Soldiers. And the best news is that they’re actually available to buy online. Read More »
In case you didn’t hear, NECA owner Joel Weinshanker (who is also the controlling owner of Graceland and a partner in Elvis Presley Enterprises) save Loot Crate from bankruptcy, and they’re revamping the pop culture memorabilia subscription box service. Not only are they looking to offer better merchandise in new Loot Crates, but the first offerings out of the gate are actually crowdfunded campaigns that will include exclusive NECA figures inspired by the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from 1990 and the horror comedy classic Gremlins. Find out how to get them below. Read More »

NECA has been bringing some of Guillermo del Toro‘s cinematic creations from Pan’s Labyrinth to life in the form of detailed, collectible action figures. But soon the filmmaker’s Best Picture winner will have a place on your unique toy shelf too.
The Shape of Water tells the fairytale story of the Amphibian Man, a fishlike humanoid who strikes up a relationship with a government facility custodian who ultimately tries to break him out and free him into the ocean. The Amphibian Man is played by none other than Guillermo del Toro’s frequent creature collaborator Doug Jones, and now he’s becoming a stunning action figure that will be hitting shelves later this year.
