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→
Welcome back my dear readers and toy minded collectors, I am once again back on your monitor presenting the findings from the 2014 Toy Fair and with this fourth chapter will be continuing along in the wonderful NECA booth with a few more visuals of their awesome “Pacific Rim” action figures. Take a look. With much of this being straightforward I will not be chiming in all that much. Enjoy.
Now that I have presented both the Opening Ceremony and the winners of the “Toy Of The Year Awards” along with the Press Conference by Alicia Keys, the time has come to get to exploring the larger event with camera and pen (err Smartphone) in hand. I might have mentioned this in one of my older coverage overviews, but the way that they set up Toy Fair is that the section almost adjacent to the Press space are the newer vendors to the show. It’s great in my humble opinion and of course a bit of a mixed bag to observe and document, but I like to get the overview started with this region. First up are the folks from Super Sprowtz, and this is a nutrition based program for kids with superheroes that are actually vegetables. It’s got some charm and hopefully it gets the young ones to eat their greens.
