Introducing all new Diablo III merchandise from NECA!
December 2, 2013
Since 1996, a name has been whispered — the name of the living nightmare that even demons dread. The terror that can never die. That name is Diablo®: the namesake of Blizzard Entertainment‘s best-selling action RPG series!

Diablo III – Deluxe Action Figure – Diablo, Lord of Terror

This creative collaboration between Blizzard’s senior sculptor Brian Fay and NECA’s Alex Heinke honors the 2014 “Reaper of Souls” expansion to Diablo III. The result brings to life an evil steeped in the smoldering fires of Hell with terrifying precision. Diablo stands over 9″ tall, with a poseable tail that’s over 12″ long. Each figure is hand-painted and features over 25 points of articulation for poses to inspire panic and despair in other action figures.

Diablo III – Prop Replica – El’Druin, The Sword of Justice

Only the righteous can wield this superb prop replica from Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo IIIEl’Druin™, the Sword of Justice! This recreation of Archangel Tyrael’s legendary weapon was built directly from digital files used in-game, and measures nearly three and a half feet long. It features a pulsing blue LED light in the hilt, simulating the awesome protective powers the sword draws from the High Heavens.Each El’Druin is carefully crafted of ABS, plastic and PVC in a construction designed for durability and impact resistance. Afterwards, it is hand-painted in gold and silver, using a mix of washes and dry brushing to enhance the detail and the metallic feel. The result is a realistic replica that looks just like the real thing, but is perfectly safe. Batteries included.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
