There's a FiguArts Sadako that's really nice, might be worth a look despite the expense now. I've always been really happy with mine.

Is there any chance the Brody rights are gonna get cleared up or is that just totally off the table?

I really wanted that O-Ren to use for a Lady Snowblood custom.

The Shaw line not happening will never not hurt.

I got Homelander today... the face isnt perfect but it will do for now... its very Zach Morris-ish... def doesnt hold a candle to the MAFEX face sculpt. Iwish he had a smiling face or an angry open mouth

$30 toy at Wal-Mart doesn't hold a candle to the $100 import. You don't say?

If I recall correctly, it was his family that killed that deal. It sounds they don't want it to happen, so it's probably a no-go unless they have a change of heart.

even still, NECA does some great headsculpts... its more a question as to why 2 super similar almost expressionless faces instead of maybe a smiling one or another angry one... it could have been very much on par with the 100 import if there were different expressions

also some 20 dollar Hasbro face printing BEATS 100 dollar imports... price is not the issue here

It's entirely possible they weren't given a lot of reference to work from when production on the toy began.

I think it was another thread where someone pointed out face scanning took a big hit during Covid for obvious reasons. So that might explain why a lot of live action figures across multiple lines have taken a step backwards lately.

Maybe they don’t like money?

I've never watched that show, but I can tell you every time I see a screencap or promo for it, I do a double take and think it's Zach Morris in a superhero show. So I'd say the head sculpt isn't too off in that regard.

So I’m gonna start this by saying KidRobot and Joseph Enterprises have a lot of licenses they don’t share with NECA Toys (ie-KidRobot makes Ghostbuster plushies, Joseph Enterprises makes Star Wars Chia and Clappers)

Buuuuut…. A lot of licenses are shared by all the companies under the NECA umbrella, and I did notice an Alf Chia Pet and Alf Plushies went up for Pre-order today…

I can only hope this license is like Bob Ross and Richard Simmons and this means at least a Toony Alf is coming our way soon…. (though Ultimate is end game, but now that I think putting a fur suit on the kid body and calling it a Retro Alf would be a real hoot too)

My reaction to BBTS putting up all those NECA adjacent Alf pre-orders

Shouldn't Neca have it's own section with designated threads?

Why bother? This method has worked for years on this forum. You can subscribe (and bookmark in your browser of choice) any threads for lines you might be interested in.Relatively small lines go here in the "General NECA" thread, while the bigger lines like BTTF, Aliens, Predator, or Gargoyles get their own threads.
