This isn’t quite breaking news as it’s been out there for a few days, but I wanted to share a couple new products from NECA Toys on here that caught my eye. As a child of the 80s, ROBOCOP and GREMLINS are a pair of franchises that hold a warm place in my heart. While ‘Cop will be some years off, I’m looking forward to the day that I get to share GREMLINS with my daughters for the first time. So how about some toys?
For the 25th Anniversary of the RoboCop franchise, TOYS R US is getting an exclusive Night Fighter RoboCop, a glow-in-the-dark figure with retro-styled 80s packaging. Notice the NECA logo? Looks mighty KENNER-ish right there…
As for GREMLINS, NECA’s done a great job with the line in the past, but nothing quite like this has been released until now. From GREMLINS II: THE NEW BATCH comes Lightning Gremlin, the electrified energy of a “mythical creature.” He’ll be available as a Toys R Us exclusive this July.
NECA has been rolling out a ton of news lately, particularly regarding SDCC (that’s San Diego Comic-Con) exclusives like PREDATOR and EVIL DEAD. Check out http://necaonline.com for more.
