    Up Close: NECA the Old Man from A Christmas Story


    Since it’s debut in the 1980s, Bob Clarke’s wonderful “A Christmas Story” has gone from memorable cult film to absolute beloved classic. When something is beloved around the holidays these days, well, here comes the merchandise!

    NECA has quietly been dominating this market in the 8″ scale with their previous releases from holiday centered films like Home Alone and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. So, A Christmas story is not only logical, it’s downright welcome!

    For this photo review, we chose “The Old Man” figure because not only as ardent fans of The Night Stalker, but actor Darren McGavin actually was the Supreme Commander of Mego’s Eagle Force, so it’s just serendipitous.

    I put in some HEAVY hints for my birthday next week. Let's hope my movie counterpart arrives. I am very much Ralphie's old man. From jubilant to ticked off in mere seconds.

    Got my Old Man yesterday and Neca did a really, really nice job on him. I may have to buy another though, because this one is becoming Kolchak.

    I had also considered doing that, but after having him in-hand, I don't feel either head is suitable for Kolchak. Both are clearly McGavin, but the expressions don't lend themselves to the Kolchak character. Well, maybe the angry head would make a good yelling-at-Vincenzo-or-"Uptight" version.
