They look alright, nothing too special but there's a low detail version of Gosling's blaster in the pic.

Thanks for sharing.

Sorta underwhelming. Especially Ford. Looks like he is going to clean out the garage on a Sunday. Hope that is not the extent of his wardrobe for the new film.

It is not going to look better when you see the real one. Its a swing and a miss on the new blaster. Does not live up to the original - not even close. Held it in my hands and was completely excited for the opportunity while being totally disappointed with the design at the same time.

I'm sure the license only covers the new film. Any old characters and you run into likeness rights with the actors.

What's the general opinion of NECAs action figures here?

I'll be getting the BR 2049 figures at some point, and from what I've seen they look pretty good.

I was extremely disappointed with they Ripley figures from the Alien line, though. They made a big fuss about getting the OK for Weaver's likeness, and the three Ripley figures they've done haven't looked that much like her, IMO.

I think the opinion is that the paint jobs ruined what were some pretty awesome sculpts.

That's kind of what I thought on the Ripley ones. The unpainted sculpts got me hyped cause they looked pretty solid. Once I got the final product in hand, it was underwhelming. I kind of wish they sold them unpainted!

I'm having a bit of trouble understanding the intended demographic here. It's a R-rated film, yet NECA is marketing these things as toys.. What children (besides us) will be interested in them? Confused

Bwood, while they are toys, they are "adult" action figures...I think it even says 17+ on the box.


Most kids are not buying $25+ toys!

As noted in the comment above, I think their entire business was built around targeting adult collectors from the start. All the interaction I've seen on their social media is with adults, and the times I've seen their stuff in toy stores, it's been segregated in it's own area, rather than in with the star wars, ninja turtles, and the like.

Deckard is definitely dressed down in the film!
However, he does also don a one-coloured button-down long sleeve shirt with two chest pockets. Other than that, what you see is what you get.

Amateur hour at the Neca factory. Spot the "deliberate" mistake....
