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.

That will definitely be an issue for most of us...

I wish neca could find a way to engineer a model which could be split in different elements, for example, if you want to display just the head (like the toony terror) or maybe just like the tail coming out of the water, or head+tail to make a cool looking display which would take less shelf space andd you can configure again whenever you want OR win the lottery so you can move to a palace and get your own extra space just for figures

That is a great idea. You should pass it along to them.

I don’t know how NECA tackles it. Unless you’re a diehard Universal Studios fan, a static shark is boring. But a segmented shark required for articulation won’t look right. It will look like the Otachi tail from Pacific Rim. And I’d be wary of any artificial skin for an internal skeleton.

Indeed, it's challenging...in the case of crocodiles and animals like that, the wrinkled texture of their skins helps hiding articulation...but with a shark, it would be very noticeable. I don't like the rubber body +skeleton underneath either...maybe just articulated ball head and jaw it's enough...?

I'm think about the brand new shark guy McFarlane did for the suicide squad line ImageImage

Bought “Creepshow” at Target and got stung by a fake. Someone swapped the body under the cloak with a dollar store skeleton. Returning I go…

The color Frankenstein, first MacReady, and BTTF2 Doc Brown are all listed as shipping on Monday by NECA's shipping calendar. Hopefully showing up at online shops within the next two or three weeks then...

Calendar? I have been trying to check the calendar, but for me it just comes up blank.

I've never been able to get that stuff on NECA's site to work.

Couple things:

The front page of the NECA site has a little "Shipping This Week" sidebar that shows them for the week.

Also, I recently noticed on the calendar that some days have little dots on them. I've not gotten anything to load up either, but if you click the "Export" button, you can get a list in whatever sort of Calendar program/app you might have. At least it worked on Windows for me. But all that's on there currently is the same stuff for this week listed on the front page.

Both The Boys figures were listed for July 26. Just recall these shipping dates are for when product ships to retailers from NECA's warehouse, not when you can expect them in-store. BBTS, for example, has lagged pretty far behind NECA's shipping dates as far as when they actually have the product in stock.

Do Homelander/Starlight joints need to be eased up or are they good to go out of the box?

I saw some reviews, they said they’re good to go out of the box no heating on them.
