For all of you that are rabid gamers, look no further than NECA Toys for your action figure fix! At the 2011 Toy Fair, NECA unveiled a number of figures that fans are sure to get excited over. While packaged copies of their current lineup was shown (Dead Space 2, Splinter Cell, Crisis 2, & Bulletstorm), the protyopes for Gears of War 3 and Duke Nukem were shown. Yes, THAT Duke Nukem! He features a spot-on sculpt, massive amounts of articulation, and even his trademark cigar! After years for waiting for a new game, now fans of the toughest s.o.b. in the universe can now have him standing on their shelves, guns in hand and ready to unload on any alien/monster/jerk that gets in his way!
The Gears of War 3 line mirrors the look of the videogame, with Marcus and his squad of kill-machines getting an upgrade in the detail department. Each figure looks to have plentiful articulation that stays relatively unseen thanks to the ingenious way it’s worked into the sculpts. One big reveal of note is the inclusion of Anya, the female soldier in the squad. She is the first female figure to be released in the Gears line to date, and is a welcome addition. Also on hand was the statue of Cole in his Thrashball uniform, and a full-sized Lancer Assault Rifle complete with splattered blood-deco. Overall, NECA seems to know exactly what kind of toys gamers want to own, and we can’t wait to get our hands on these releases later this year!
