Hey there my friends, do you remember when I was doing the Toy Fair coverage earlier in the year and I spotlighted a couple of the cool action figures that the world was going to get from NECA? If not that is okay but to recap they have been offering up some serious coolness based on Iron Maiden’s own maniacal mascot “Eddie” and we’ve seen him in his quite classic “Killers” form as well as from “The Trooper” with a real cloth outfit. Now I am happy to share with you the image of their available everywhere “Eddie” in his “Powerslave” Mummy outfit. Check out the official photo below and then I’ve got some press copy for you to absorb.
Here’s the Official Word on the figure from the NECA site “Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the classic metal masterpiece – Iron Maiden’s POWERSLAVE – with this amazing “Mummy” Eddie. Based on the poster and program artwork from their groundbreaking 1984-1985 World Slavery Tour, this 8″ tall Eddie action figure features real metal chains that can be connected to the mouth or unhooked for when he breaks free. Also includes a bonus interchangeable second head based on the SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME artwork, with the bandages stripped away to reveal more of the beast that lies beneath.” Continue reading NECA Presents: Iron Maiden’s “Eddie” in Powerslave Incarnation→
Fans of The Misfits will be looking for an extra treat in their Halloween goody bags this year with this treat from the fine folks at NECA as they present us with “The Fiend” action figure who is most commonly known as being the mascot for the legendary Horror Punk band.
The figure actually made its debut at the San Diego Comic Con a few months ago but now that the New York Comic Con is here, the whole world of fandom can get their hands on one since its now available everywhere. Check out the press copy from the NECA Team after this photo of “The Fiend”….
Spider-Man fans everywhere will be eager to own this new figure in the Marvel Legends Infinite Series since it brings the questionable heroism of Agent Venom to their playing field. Check him out below his logo. Please note that these images were provided by Hasbro’s Press Outlet so we could get them to you nice and sleek like.
In the comics, Agent Venom is actually a government operative and is the super hero/villain identity of Flash Thompson. He is a member of The Thunderbolts and according to what I read during Free Comic Book Day, also a member of The Guardians Of The Galaxy so he will work well with your collections of each of those action figure sets should you own them. Here is the open figure and you can see that he looks awesome.
Back in March I put up a post that showcased some incredible Hasbro action figures for the new film “Captain America The Winter Soldier” which you can check out HERE. Now that the film has been out for a month I figured let me post the images of the lines wave two of figures to be complete. There’s three additional figures to add to your collection so lets get right down to business shall we.
First up we have a new Black Widow so all your Scarlett Johansson fans will be super happy to add this kick ass heroine to the ranks of your own personal Avengers. As before I am using the press provided images and they gave us the free standing figure and one in the packaging.
The latest Spider-Man film, appropriately titled “Amazing Spider-Man 2” does NOT come out care of Marvel Studios but is instead under the mindful eye of the Sony studios and if you enjoyed the first film (which I did to an extent) then fans should be ecstatic about the sequel coming out this summer. Hasbro Toys will be bringing this film to peoples collections with their “Spider-Man Legends Infinite Series” and as I did with my last couple of posts about these figures, I culled together the provided press images and talked a little about the figures. You’ll get to see what amounts to this whole first wave in its packaging. Let’s get started with one of Spider-Man’s most classic of villains – The Beetle.
