I Want That: Pacific Rim action figures from Neca!
As the summer movie season comes to a close most department stores will start slapping clearance tags on their movie-themed toy merchandise that didn't exactly fly off the shelves and avid collectors will attempt to scoop up the rare finds that will find a second life (or not) on ebay. It's been a relatively crappy summer for movie toys, however, with MAN OF STEEL and IRON MAN 3 (ironically, two fo the top earners) not putting much effort into their molded plastic and holdovers like GI JOE: RETALIATION not doing much better. Beyond the always reliable Lego's (who are probably kicking themselves with all THE LONE RANGER overstock they're likely to have), the best offering for movie-related action figures came in the form of one of the summer's underdogs: PACIFIC RIM.
Neca toys produced a line of 7-inch action figures, intricately detailed, articulated, and finely crafted, which serve as a perfect robots vs. monsters addition to fuel the imagination of anyone from age four to age forty. Currently available are Gypsy Danger, Crimson Typhoon, and Knifehead, with two more additions, Stryker Eureka and Leatherback, set for release next month. In addition, a special 18-inch light up Gypsy Danger is in the pipeline for release as well, completing what is without a doubt the best of this summer's action figure line-up for a movie tie-in. If you're a fan of the film or action figures in general, then these PACIFIC RIM figures from Neca are hard to beat (and likely hard to find in the coming months). Grab 'em while you can!
Here's the line-up:
