NECA SCALERS “Wave 1″ Arriving in Retail in Two Weeks


February 10, 2014
SCALERS also to be on display at Toy Fair 2014

Mark your calendars! NECA today announced that SCALERS, their line of licensed “cord accessories”, will be arriving in select retailers in the next two weeks. SCALERS are decorative cord and cable accessories in the shape of popular characters, with a patented mechanism that fastens to headphone cords, device cables and more. SCALERS characters are based on popular film and television characters, from the infamous Freddy Krueger, to the incredibly lethal Alien from the movies of the same name. SCALERS are a great way to have fun with earbuds and other cables!

More than 50 licenses will be incorporated into the SCALERS product line, including Pacific Rim, Aliens, Predator, Godzilla, Portal, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street.

Each SCALER is a sculpted, hand-painted miniature character model from some of the most widely recognized properties in the world. SCALERS are the coolest accessories your cords will ever want to collect!

 

NECA will have SCALERS on display in their booth #4802 at Toy Fair 2014 in New York City from February 16-19. For business-related inquiries or to schedule an appointment at Toy Fair, please contact Shannon Pratt, NECA Director of Business Development.  (shannonp@necaonline.com)

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.
