View Full Version : NECA fans, do you have a dream license?

In my opinion, Neca have become the go-to company for great small scale collectables over the last few years. Not only have they been reliably producing great sculpts, but they've also begun to creatively implement useful and sublte articulation in a way I've never seen before.

They've fulfilled some geeky dreams in the form of the Predator tribes and continue to do so with the upcoming human characters from the Predator and Alien franchises. They're quickly collecting a great range of licenses, an so my question is...

What franchise would you love to see Neca tackle in the future?



I think my pick would be The Matrix.

I fear the lackluster sequels may have killed interest in the title, but the original film is a classic and those characters would sit perfectly alongisde Neca's other sci-fi staples. Great sculpts with the new articulation could work wonders with this license.

I'd snap up figures from the lobby shoot-out, subway fight and the training sequence in the dojo. A sentinel would be great too. Mcfarlane did decent work but the industry has moved on so far, I'd love to see what today's figures would look like.

Would also love to see Buffy/Angel (hell, any Whedon series) figures too, but I think that ship has long since sailed.

What would you guys like to see?

I can honestly say they are doing or have already done everything I've ever truly wanted at the scale they produce. Terminator, Robocop, Alien and Predator.

I only care for them to finish those franchises, ideally including risky choices like Mike Harrigan from Predator 2, John Connor from T2 etc - however those are really unlikely it would seem.

But I just don't understand at all why theres a hesitancy about producing ED-209 and the Queen Alien.

LOL. Well, I wouldn't quite go that far... But yeah, my 2 favorite movies all time are Aliens and Army of Darkness. I believe they have sufficiently kicked ass and, pending the upcoming marines, I would be happy to say "Nice work fellas. Take a much deserved break".

But if they wanted to touch on Tombstone (#3 all time) I would eat up the Earp brothers, Doc and Johny Ringo! Hell, they wouldnt even have to acquire that many more actor's likenesses!

They have done some of the characters that I like already:

Predator / Predator 2 / God Of War / Resident Evil: ORC / Street Fighter.

Would be good to see:

Rockstar: The Warriors (the group of 9 members) / Manhunt (James Earl Cash) / Bully (Jimmy Hopkins).

Mortal Kombat 9 characters... Scorpion / Sub Zero etc...

TMNT and an Alien Queen.

-Finish the TMNT line-or at least give us Shredder and Casey Jones.
-Indiana Jones
-Star Wars
-GI Joe

I realize there is very little chance on 3 out of 4 of these lines, but would still be cool.

P.S. I'd only want them if they were fully articulated, I can't stand NECA's action-statues!

I think NECA are particularly good at sci-fi/horror franchises.

I'd like to see them finish the Alien franchise:

- AvP aliens and preds
- Re-release AvP-R aliens and preds
- Alien: re-release Giger's alien, the Nostromo crew, each with a part of a diorama of a wall of the Nostromo, plus Dallas, Lambert and Kane in space-suits, each with a part of a dio of the wall or floor of the derelict ship, and finally, the Space Jockey.
- Aliens: Bishop, Ripley, Apone, Gorman, Vasquez, alien Queen
- Alien 3: the dragon, Ripley, Dillon, Clemens
- A:R: aliens, Ripley

Then I'd like to see Bram Stoker's Dracula: Prince Vlad in armor, Dracula as old man in his Kabuki-style attire, as young man in Victorian garb, as wolf-creature and as bat-creature.

Pretty left-field, but how about Excalibur?
I'd love to have a bunch of shining Knights on my desk.

Blade Runner would be great, but I don't think the long coats suit plastic.

The original POTA. Would love to see Charlton Heston in his astronaut gear and all of the apes.

There's probably tons more, but those spring to mind.

Excalibur would be amazing! Each knight could come with a pice of the round table. Some pretty cool possibilities with that one.:goodpost:

Well, they've pretty much covered Terminator and Robocop for me (save for a nice damaged, Peter Weller faced Robocop).


Since Mattel is so incompetent, I'd like to see NECA score a Batman license or two. They did pretty well with those bobble heads, I could easily see them putting out great '89 Batman figures as well as The Dark Knight.

I'd also think they'd pull of a line of Small Soldiers too. I could see NECA representations of Archer, Chip Hazard, the Gorgonites and the commando elite.


Also Lord of the Rings. I'd love to see them go into the 6" and 7" territory. I think they could rival Toy Biz if they tried with a selection of the 9 Fellowship members, orcs, Uruk-Hai, monsters, etc.

I'd love NECA to obtaining the Clint Eastwood likeness for some of his most popular movies like Dirty Harry and The Man with No Name trilogy. Imagine a 1/4 scale "Blondie" figure from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly! Wow!

I'd also love if NECA could produce Batman figures from the Nolan movies.

I believe both licenses would be huge financial gains for NECA. Ask me 4 years ago if I'd have shelves full of amazing Alien, Predator, and Terminator figures in 6, 12, and 24 inch scale and I would have said no. So anything is possible given the right motivation and monetary gains for NECA.
Here's hoping ...

A grown ass man on a toy forum just like you?..what point are you trying to make?..you dedicated your space on here to the most overrated movie of 2011, Ryan Gosling is boring and was especially boring in that boring movie called Drive.



This pretty much sums up Drive..

Short Circuit is very much a family movie sure and its not the greatest family movie but, the robotics were fantastic and quite believable in these flicks and i like the design hence it is a dream licence i would love to see Neca do, with how many 80's licences they have going right now,great sculpting(especially on non human characters) and with a decent price point and being able to milk one mold and retool it slightly it is perfect for this licence.

The point Im trying to make is how your hating on one of the best movies of 2011, and saying it's "overly stylistic" and "boring" yet you think Short circuit (:lol) is badass. You can't even manage to have an opinion of your own, you base what you think off of 'internet articles.' The same exact thing happened in the HT Man of Steel thread, you told everyone to read an article as to convince us why Cavill looks like the gay kid from Star Wars.

I do think Short Circuit is collectible-worthy. He's the robot ET and there is an ET line. I wouldn't buy it but if ET has a line why shouldn't Short Circuit.

Yup, i believe there was a angry red eye variant as well but, these were too pricey for a figure with such limited articulation and soft sculpted detailing.

I just find it odd that out of all the great movies out there, Short Circuit would be on the top of someones list. It's almost insulting to all of the good movies that haven't gotten figures yet. I thought this thread had to do with dream licenses...........oh wait.

Yes, the Nova Robotics design in Short Circuit i very much like and want those on my shelf but, i would never be caught wearing a cheap shiny cream colour scorpion coat that looks like the liner out of a real jacket. XD

Read the thread title bai!!!, really has nothing to do with the movie itself though, i remember back in the 80's it was well recieved amongst the kids i knew.

Yes, part of the dream of wanting one so bad is because in SC2 we see scaled versions being made and sold, something i always wanted as a kid but, there was nothing made ever, hopefully soon this wish comes true.

Almost every licence suggested in here so far, we've seen figures from these licences already(maybe not certain characters suggested sure)..they are great choices but, i personally want something that has never been done before..Blade Runner figures would be another line i'd love to see Neca do.

I would love neca to step back into 12" figures, they made a few over the years but not nearly enought. I would perfer to collect there predator line in 1/6 scale at like 30-40 bucks a pop rather then hot toys at 200-300 a pop. I love hot toys predators as I got 4 of them, but being there not clothing heavy figures I think neca could do a great job with them at that scale.

A few more terminator figures would be nice to in 1/6 scale too, like an endo from neca would be pretty desent I think and easy to afford a few to army build. Heck a kyle reese and police shootout would be cool to have too from them, maybe we could even get a t1 sarah or a t2 john connor out of the deal!!
