These are amazing. NECA is hands down the best bang for the buck.

Speaking of which, where the heck are these for sale? All I see are absurd eBay prices on a handful of figs.

The complete set of eight figures can be purchased from Entertainment Earth for $228.99 with free shipping.

That's $28.62 per figure.

No other company even comes close to producing 8" figures of this quality and price.

Huge Tarantino fan here...and I loved the movie...it's basically Reservoir Dogs set in the old West, lol. Dialogue heavy the first two thirds of the movie...and all hell breaks lose on the last third...classic Tarantino.

I'm really tempted on getting these figures...

I should have Daisy in hand this evening for further evaluation… wow, never been so tempted by a contemporary pop culture line like this. Kurt, Tim and Bruce's likeness are so good and the costuming is just great. Looks to be a decent set of accessories too.

On the movie (incredibly fun roadshow presentation!)… while it had some plot and sequencing flaws, it had impressive acting runs on the dialogue, stunning use of Panavision, and one of the best movie soundtracks in decades. I fail to see how anyone could be so dismissive as *it sucked*, but such is life. It's not likely a film that will turn you into a QT or western movie fan. ;)

I'm tempted to buy a second set to eventually re-sell.

With a limited run of only 3,000 sets worldwide, I think the investment potential is pretty good.

This set is worth the money just for the parts alone. Lots of great pieces for customizers.

Yes, as I said before on my previous post, I really dug the movie. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was Tarantino narrating...first, he doesn't have a great voice, second, it was really not necessary, as the movie was pretty easy to follow...but aside from that...Tarantino is the master of authentic real dialogue, like people talk in real life...the only other director that comes to mind who can do that as well is Martin Scorsese. Good call on mentioning Panavison and soundtrack, a true homage to Sergio Leone...and especially the still living and contributor, Ennio Morricone.

Daisy rocks! The details from head to toe are NECArific! :)

• the likeness and emotion in the sculpt is phenomenal, better than I can get in these quick pics
• hair is soft cast/flexible pvc
• well fitting pleated dress has full detailed petticoat underneath
• very nice proportional female body
• hands and forearms are sculpted and painted gloves
• adjustable shackle/chain accessory for John Ruth interaction

[QUOTE=Confessional;1264034]Daisy rocks! The details from head to toe are NECArific! :)

Confessional - what is the articulation? I picked up the Interstellar set and was disappointed to see the female body has less articulation than the male. Also did you order this or find at a brick and mortar? Thx

Confessional
Jan 23, '16, 9:38 PM
^^ Pretty much the same articulation model as the other NECAs I have (POTA Taylor/Soldier and Crimson Ghosts), and an improvement over the earlier female (Django/Hilde) model.

Good Motion: head, shoulders, arms, wrists, hips

Limited Motion: waist (swivel joint), ankles (shoe feet), neck (torso sculpt/non-articulated)

While the wrists have full multi-directional motion, the pins are small and seem a bit fragile, not unlike several modern 1/6 figures.

Daisy was direct shipped from NECA from their West Coast distribution center. I'm waiting like everyone else for the full pre-order discounted set. ;)

Thanks, Interstellar Brand doesn't have bicep or thigh rotation and the pins are very small and weak. Already tore one elbow. Sounds like they may have updated the body.

^^ online via NecaClub (http://www.necaclub.com/category-s/1884.htm)

Looks like John Ruth and Major Warren are sold out. The prices are also tiered now (they weren't originally) with Daisy and Smithers at a premium. Perhaps that signifies lower stock on the more popular characters. The EE pre-order is the way to go if you want them… best price and benefits the MM. ;)

The more I see these, the more I cant wait to get them! This is exactly what the 8" scale production figure world has been promising since the Flattworld Bela Lugosi as Dracula came out in 1999. This is the kind of production figures that will put the 1/9 scale figure on the map as a genuine high end collectable.

I assume EE will list them 'sold out' when the pre-orders have met their stock numbers. I wonder how many they ordered (3000 really isn't a big number). I think most, if not all, the other major online dealers are no longer accepting pre-orders.

I ordered a set from EE on the 21st right after the reveal. Entertainment Earth has been known to cancel orders due to limited supply, so when I saw the March shipping date I was afraid I missed out on their first shipment.
NECA says these are shipping out this week to retail.

Good to hear I should be ok. I missed out on Django

They are not really selling at any scalper prices...the figures are very nice,but the whole rarity of these figures is very over-rated.Most people buying these are resellers trying to capitalize from the whole Django scene from that controversial
release. The Hateful eight movie stunk and the figures are not moving at the rip-off scalper prices,especially considering they just came out.There is no reason why prices even need to be high right out of the gate to begin with.

^^ had them.

According to EE Customer Service the pre-order has been sold out for quite a while and NECA didn't ship enough to cover all of them. EE ships chronologically on order date, meaning all of the stock they had was already shipped to buyers. Everyone else who ordered is waiting to see if EE can get the additional stock from NECA, but it doesn't look too good given the rise in prices in the secondary market.

I'm starting to think all 3k sets have been sold/shipped or broken, and NECA has now confirmed a Tarantino addition to the line-up, which might support the *potential* sell out theory.

Not to be a downer, but I suspected for a while the pre-sale was sold out. 3000 isn't very many at all and when I saw the set was being offered by so many dealers, I started to think there's not enough to go around. I haven't received a shipping notice and I don't expect to. I ordered late, wasn't absolutely certain I wanted these, and now if I don't get them I won't mind. I do kind of like that Tarantino, for some reason though. But it does bother me there are people on the board who wanted them and now might not receive them. And it REALLY bothers me to see scalpers listing them for twice or more what they originally cost. And it REALLY REALLY!! bothers me when those scalpers list 'more than one set available'.

This is mostly the reason why people are buying these to begin with- to scalp and profit from the whole Django nonsense earlier on.The fact that the demand is not even there for these,there in stock everywhere and yet people are trying to capitalize off something that very little people have interest in...It's nothing but HYPE for these!

The figures are definitely nice,but the movie stunk....If this was something like TOMBSTONE 8" figures with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer, which is actually a GOOD movie,then I'd see the fuss

NECAís Hateful Eight line gets one more addition, just in time for the Blu-Ray release of the film! NECA recently revealed their Quentin Tarantino 8″ Scale Mego Style Figure. Here are the details:

We have a very limited edition treat for fans of The Hateful Eight: Quentin Tarantino as The Writer & Director! With clapperboard in hand, he stands ready to direct our previously released line of retro clothed action figures.

This fully articulated 8Ē figure is dressed in intricately tailored fabric clothing similar to the iconic toy lines of the 1970s. It features the authorized likeness of Quentin Tarantino and comes in window box packaging. STRICTLY LIMITED to 3,000 pieces worldwide.

These action figures are intended to be representations of their movie counterparts, and should not be construed as social or political commentary on the part of the manufacturer.
