NECA Teams Up With TOMY for Potter
September 10, 2010
NECA Announces Harry Potter Partnership
 

In a multinational collaborative effort to continue to bring you the coolest and most up-to-date righteous entertainment memorabilia, NECA has partnered with TOMY to distribute their European Harry Potter merchandise in the US!

If you’re imagining long hours in smoke-filled back rooms negotiating the deal, yeah, sure, go with that. The important thing to take away is you won’t have to pay the huge bucks for specially-imported Harry Potter items, because you’ll be able to get them right from NECA!

NECA will still have their very own line for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows later in the Fall, but we wanted to get the news out about these TOMY items now because we’re so excited about partnering up.

Here’s what’s on tap first:

Harry Potter Voice-Activated Flashlight Wand Torches
Available in Harry or Hermione. Record your own voice commands into the flashlight wand. Say "Lumos" to activate and "Nox" to deactivate!

Harry Potter Infrared Battling Wands
Available in Harry, Voldemort, Hermione, and Ron. Features authentic movie sounds, and infrared beams can interact with each other for the ultimate spell battle experience!

Harry Potter Character Casting Kit
Available in Harry/Dumbledore or Voldemort/Snape. Create your very own miniature character busts. Mold and Cast out highly detailed models, then decorate with included metallic model paints.

Harry Potter “Ultimate Dueling Battle Trainer”

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.
