Not a good start to my experience with Costumes but customer service is sending my Sylvanas figure that was missing from my order. Packing slip even shows it. Just got notification that an order for her has been placed.

So I guess today's announcement was those MOTU latex masks? Bummer. And their booth at PowerCon is like a dozen packaged items we've already seen. Maybe their panel tomorrow will have something interesting in it.

NECA retweeted Bryan Fuller asking for a Naru figure from Prey about a half hour ago, so I'd say the possibility is on the table. They might've already even made one, I feel like I remember Randy saying in one of the SDCC interviews that they can't show Prey stuff until September though. Or maybe it was just a couple weeks after the premiere, I'm too lazy to go back and find it again.

Randy mentioned to Pixel Dan at SDCC that the new line they were showing off at Power Con WASN'T action figures, so people assuming that were just hoping for something that wasn't coming.

I'm sure there will be more come NYCC.

He said "some teases and a brand new line", I do not then recall nor as I rewatch the video do I hear him confirm it's not figures. Was this something Dan tweeted separately? But whatever, I guess all the NECA tweets about surprises were really only about this one thing. Is PowerCon supposed to be a MOTU-focused thing? That might explain why I was hoping for something else, I'd never heard of the Con before.

Rick's Nerd Life gave a little more detail on the NECA panel at PowerCon. For example, they mentioned more Lugosi to come and the possibility of doing Cain from Robocop 2. More tidbits in the text here:

I hardly ever buy TV figures, unless it's an animated property, but I'd be all over these :lol: Exactly the kind of property they'd do Retro/Mego figures for, which I don't love, but these would probably have their own display for me anyways.

I would too but I sorta want 7" Horror style ala Frankenstein and Elvira! If nothing else but for the better facial sculpts those usually get.

Been rewatching everything Matt Berry as background noise while I work, and I had the same thought every thirty minutes.

I wouldn't buy any for myself (though I like the show), but I'd love to get Colin Robinson for sister.

There’s certainly some cool creatures on the show that would be fun. Id love the 70s/80s punk versions of lazlo and nadia from the opening credits. Two pack of the burnt up baron and the sire
