Let me tell you a tale of NECA bootlegs

So I wanted to shore up my NECA Jason collection earlier this year and I had to get three in particular. Roy, Part 6 and 12. I go on ebay and I get two that are almost definitely bootlegs, and the other I get from BBTS.

Roy and 6 came from Chinese sellers in such a fashion that I'd be shocked if they're legit. 6 was a mess nightmare where the sheath for the machete refuses to hold onto it and the figure was popped in half in the box at the waist. I managed to work around it though and while he's a bit wibbly, he does fine on display

Roy was perfect and if he's a bootleg or not I cannot tell


Part 12 who is absolutely legit has *two left biceps*

Not two left arms- biceps. I was messing with him, and I realized his right arm didn't articulate worth shit. It'd go maybe a few degrees at best but otherwise it was stuck straight. I kept looking at it and looking at it, because of the design its hard to notice since he's wearing a heavy coat, and I realized that the upper right arm is actually completely turned around because its actually a left arm. So he can't move his elbow hardly at all


basically don't fear NECA Bootlegs because its not going to be worse than what you get from NECA themselves

The wolf soldiers from American Werewolf in London, I'm assuming.

Best Bruce Campbell likeness yet. Still no interest in an ED1 Ash, but those headsculpts make me want to get it anyway.

How are these Jason masks that are popping up in stores now? Thinking about getting one. Would be swell if NES was available.

Ooooooh yeah, Wolfman is looking a lot nicer. Looks like the mustache isn't there anymore and they made the face darker. I'm so excited for this figure to release, I just can't wait to add to the growing Universal Monsters collection.

I would agree the face of the figure looks a lot better than the pic. Re-excited for this one now!

Can’t be positive from the pic, but while there’s swappable heads, and hands, there seem to be only one set of (feral) feet. Otherwise good looking figure.

The human feet are behind him. He's been shown with human feets before anyway.
