Picked up deluxe Robocop with the chair at my LCS today. Will crack him open and snap some pics tomorrow.

My Target got a restock of things today, mostly that Elvira stern crate and more Sam, Defenders of Earth etc. Of note, though, at least to me, was the Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2 Freddy -finally- has face printing. He's not as "muddy" painted, and the main head is now looking off to the side. They sure like doing the side-eye on these printed figures I've noticed...

from the NYCC pictures, it looks like ALF definitely isn't coming with his Hawaiian shirt :(

I imagine they’ll release him multiple ways with different accessories. Will have to recoup his development costs.

Has NECA said anything about their movie Krampus figures since they teased them at the beginning of the year? Seems like we should have heard an update, or seen a reveal, at this point.

I don't know if they never recovered from the pandemic logistics issues or what, but I feel like NECA has been having some hard times. It seems like they're taking so long to get things to shelves these days...is it just me?

Really? They seemed to be getting a ton of stuff out lately. At least as far as refreshed stock and some new releases showing up for the Haulathons and Fall Geek Out whatevers. I can't speak for what's meant to have BEEN out and only just now hit, of course, but it seems like they're doing okay on the scheduling. Is there something you think should've been out that isn't?

I wish I didn’t absolutely hate the Munsters movie because the figures look great. Especially grandpa!
I did pre order zombo though since he’s close enough to the original that it doesn’t feel specific to the movie.

Yeah I guess I was thinking more about the D&D and Predator figures, but maybe it's just my perception. I feel like those have been in my preorders for a long time.

I just saw the new Hellraiser, and now I want NECA to release the new (and original) cenobites.
