    Default NECA Pirates of the Caribbean

    I apologise if this has been asked or is in the wrong thread but does anyone know why NECA hasn't decided to make figures based off of the new Pirates of the Caribbean on Stranger Tides movie?

    I want a Blackbeard to go with my Jack Sparrow, Barbosa, Davy Jones and Captain Teague.

    Have NECA said anything about the series?

    I haven't heard anything. But I'm with you- I want NECA to pick up the line. I love the figures; they are so much better than what Jakks is putting out.

    The Jakks are by in large junk but I have to say I was surprised at how passable a few were. I mean they are Jakks! The Penelope Cruz one you could use with the NECA figures and probably the old guy sidekick of Jack's. Whatever his name is.

    They are not knockouts but some of the old NECA ones were real crap and these are at least comparable to some of the lame ones like Clanker and pretty much all of the Will Turners.

    Yea Neca's older pirate figures look awful, their latest efforts have been far superior however and I have to imagine they would be improved upon.

    The Jakks Gibbs and Blackbeard are great in 3-4" scale. I personally looked through all the 6" figures in person, and felt none of them were upto par however. The recently announced pirate costume 6" Barbossa from the the 2nd wave is the only one that looks promising imo.

    I picked up the 4" Blackbeard to hopefully hold me over til Hot Toys releases him.

    I think the reason NECA isnt' making them is BECAUSE of Jakks gettin the license.

    Okay, I must be thinking of a different NECA line than everyone else. I have a Jack from CotBP, DMC, and AWE in the 7" line and they're all pretty well done. I'm not crazy about the 18" Jacks, but Teague is outstanding. Or mine is.

    I don't like the rubberiness of the accessories of the Jakks figures and the paint job on the ones I have are pretty bad. Weapons are okay on the 7'' line, crap on the 3". I had a heck of a time trying to get 7" Gibbs (best looking of the current line, imho) to hold his rifle correctly. The hs on the figures are decent, but overall I'm meh on the line.

    NECA had its PotC license at the same time Zizzle had its license I think, so unless Disney sold exclusive rights this time around, I don't see why NECA couldn't get it. If they want it, that is.

    Agreed the only one I bought was Captain Teague and that was only because I found a decent paint job. Sao Feng looked awful and I was looking forward to that figure but passed when I saw it.

    I also wish that NECA had done figures for On Stranger Tides. The crap that is out now is unbearable.
