NECA Plays Hard in 2011 With More Video Game Properties
January 7, 2011

It’s a new year and NECA has given us an update on things to look forward to in 2011:

2011 is off to a furious start and your friends at NECA are rested and relaxed after a long holiday break. Oh wait, no they are not.

That’s right. While you were knee-deep in egg nog and wearing glasses with funny numbers on them, they were working the entire time to continue to bring you all things awesome, and no doubt you’ll find their new action figures from the videogames Borderlands, Crysis 2, Bulletstorm and Splinter Cell: Conviction more than fit the bill.

We’ve got a lot to go through here, folks, so here’s the goods:

Borderlands
ClapTrap Action Figure

From the best selling videogame Borderlands comes this highly detailed poseable replica of everyone’s favorite robot, Claptrap. Poseable arms, wheel, and retractable drawer and antenna. Comes with display base.

 

Splinter Cell: Conviction
Sam Fisher 7" Action Figure

From the bestselling Splinter Cell videogame series comes the first ever action figure of hero Sam Fisher based on his appearance in the latest game, Conviction. Figure stands 6 3/4" tall, has over 20 points of articulation, and is available in two different variations with different accessories for each.

 

Bulletstorm
Grayson Hunt 7" Action Figure

From the makers of Gears of War comes one of the most buzzed about new shooters from this year’s E3, PAX, and TGS – it’s Bulletstorm. Lead character Grayson Hunt is highly detailed, 7" scale, and is fully poseable with PMC rifle, goggles and more.

 

Crysis 2
Nanosuit 7" Action Figure

Last but not least, the long awaited follow-up to Crysis brings us a brand new Nanosuit and it is represented with this amazing new action figure. The figure stands 7" tall and has over 25 points of articulation and comes with the Scar assault rifle.

 

All of our new figures come in gorgeous clamshell packaging and hit stores in March 2011. For those of a more internetty persuasion, they’ll also be featured on our Amazon storefront.

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.
