I saw that, but I also recall him saying that in response to more They Live aliens in the retro line, so that might be all he means.

I doubt NECA has any plans for They Live outside of the MEGO dolls they already produced. So far, Dr. Loomis is the only one to escape the hell of having a generic doll body...and he's a revisit from decades past!

I’m curious if the Mattel They Live figure would get in the way.

It’s super frustrating that no one can give me a decent They Live line. NECA did the Mego thing which is fine but I wasn’t sold on the Nada sculpt and I didn’t want to pay the extra for Frank.

S7 let me down too because they had that awesome Piper sculpted for the ReAction line but then something happened and he never got released. I was hoping ReAction was going to get us everyone.

And then Mattel is making the Piper but no one to go with it, obviously.

Check out the new Fwooshcast for a nice interview with Randy. Interesting and fun tidbits about the lines featured during the SDCC virtual panel, and a bit of teasing beyond. Sounds like next big round of announcements will be in mid-September.

I wonder if it's worth pushing it that hard into ultimates if they don't get the rights for Brody, don't you think?

Although I've got the strange feeling they had the chance to put things in order somehow and the Brody figure is actually coming... probably not now, maybe they needed to tweak something in the sculpt or something..

Meanwhile, i keep working on my very own Brody to go with Quint Image(sorry for the offtopic)

Hmm, on my end it shows the original question about Jaws Ultimates as well as Randy's answer. But I'm browsing on a laptop, maybe it's different for mobile?

At any rate, I can't say I haven't had similar thoughts to yours about whether NECA might have worked out the Brody situation. Hooper wasn't happening as of last year, and now he is. It's possible. But even without him, I'll still buy whatever Ultimates they are able to get out, if they do go that way.

I don’t know where I’d be able to fit an Ultimate Bruce in my collection. I have the Jaws MM set and the 3D poster, and that fills a narrow IKEA Billy shelf; I’d buy Brody, Hooper, and Quint, but a 3’-4’ scaled shark would not fit anywhere near the rest of the Jaws stuff.

Re: the Gremlins accessory pack. Randy says on the Fwooshcast that the Bandit ski-mask comes on a full Gremlin head, not just the mask, since he is earless in the film.

Another tidbit for Universal Monsters stuff: the Mummy figure does NOT come with the sarcophagus. Too big. But they are building items like that for photography purposes and are considering releasing them as accessory packs for the bigger characters at some point.
