At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con
will debut the prototypes for this fall’s highly anticipated Castlevania
series. To celebrate and commemorate the launch of this amazing series we wanted to offer something special. The "Pixel" Simon Mini Figure
is based on the look of the original Castlevania
vampire hunter, Simon Belmont
, and how he appeared on the original 8-Bit NES platform.
This figure is a non-poseable resin mini-figure that stands about 3" tall. He will be packaged on a small blister card that re-creates the original game artwork and background. This mini-figure will be available only at the San Diego Comic-Con and will be limited to 1000 pieces!
Randy had hinted at this item last week on the official NECA MySpace page saying: This little gem has been kept under wraps for some time and I am very excited about it. On Friday you will see what it is but for now – I will give you a few teasers to get you thinking..
– it is unlike any figure we have done before
– it originated as a joke that one of our main sculptors did to annoy me
– it is a great marketing tool for launching something new
– it caused many debates internally about how to sculpt & paint it
– it is cute, it is cool, and it is very original
– it will be limited to only 1000 pcs and will not be available anywhere but the San Diego Comic-Con. No other cons, no other countries, nada
– it should only cost $10 (probably the least expensive exclusive of the whole SDCC)
