One of the more impressive companies we’ve encountered at Toy Fair the last two years is New Jersey-based toy manufacturer NECA, who make photo-realistic versions of characters from a wide variety of movies, including many classic genre films. Even though they had a lot of models for their upcoming action figures on display at last year’s Toy Fair, they have cranked out an amazing amount of different figures in the year since then, and they don’t look to be resting on their laurels any time soon.
Last year, they debuted their first toys based on the “Harry Potter” movies and now a year later, those toys have been selling well, and NECA continues to roll out new variations with four series of 7″ action figures currently available and another series on the way.
Later this year, they will release a two-pack of 7″ figures of Harry from Year Two (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) along with the original Dumbledore as played by the late Richard Harris, and Series 5 of their 7″ line will include the Wesley Twins, Fred and George, and a figure of Mad-Eye Moody, which will kick-off their action figures leading up to November’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Unfortunately, there were no models of some of the characters from the sixth movie, maybe because that’s further away, but you can expect NECA to continue their success bringing the characters from the movies to
NECA also had a nifty snow globe of Harry on his Quidditch broom and other toys and gifts related to the movies.
