Is the First Blood Figure the First Bad NECA Likeness?


Technically, the answer is a clear no for anybody who remembers the early Beetlejuice toys NECA began with. But it’s their first one in a while that doesn’t look too good to me – the facial sculpt just seems very soft. I hope this isn’t the final product.


More NECA pictures here. In the spirit of their Night Fighter Robocop toy, I hope (to no avail, almost certainly) that they’ll get to the rest of the Force of Freedom as well…
