Oh shit! It worked!
Nah, I?m just foolin? ya. This is actually the prototype of NECA?s Beetlejuice figure, part of its increasingly awesome Cult Classics movie toyline. I?m starting our NYTF coverage with NECA as it had the coolest, newest toys by far, including Danny Trejo as Machete from Grindhouse?
Kurt Russell as Stuntman Mike from Grindhouse?s Death Proof?
A second batch-tastic figure of David Bowie from Labyrinth with Hoggle (seriously, check out that package!)?
And Regan doing her creepy-ass spider-walk from The Exorcist. I suppose the brutal crucifix masturbation scene was a little much for a toy.
Oh, and that?s not close to all. NECA has announced a full Conan the Barbarian movie line with this figure as Ahnuld appears with warpaint (a pitfighter Conan is also scheduled):
More from NECA later.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
