wonder if that's a Mego scale Predator arm there. And finally a female body from Neca, too.

Well, they did a female with Broomhilda in the Django line... but point taken.

Those are nice looking figures. I bet that gets used for a couple Catwoman customs, too!

forgot about Django, those are unattainable for customs, tho.

Great movie, and I like the figures. Didn't see those coming...

Very cool. I like how NECA seems to be doing well selling 8" cloth figures to modern collectors, not just us nostalgia guys. Hope they keep going for a long time. I bet we get some better pictures at Toy Fair.

Easy pass...Neca doesn't seem to want my money after making their stellar Snake Plissken figure

Where is Rocky? Rambo? Terminator? More Ash?

Agree, I say they should just skip this line and go straight to making "alien" figures using fabric material clothing. Its a no contest.

Whoa, I love them! I'm in for these figures. Love space characters and these two will be perfect victims for Doc Mego' Star Raiders (when they come out!).

whoa, I really didn't expect this... nice though! NECA is ON FIRE!

I like it that not just the big franchises get the Neca treatment.
And I can't resist astronauts anyway...

No interest in the characters, but damn, that looks like the first quality space helmet in 1/9. Cool!

Neca is really hitting high on the quality mark. These are impressive.

I loved Interstellar, but if Prometheus figures bombed, my guess is these will too.

The difference is:
Insterstellar = great movie
Prometheus = sucks....

But you're probably right, they won't be fantastic sellers.
I still want them...

Unless there's a TARS accessory to go with these, they've *totally* tripped up.

That would be great, especially with a voice chip, with the setting on 100% sarcastic...

I really hope those suits will come off the bodies.

It could be a customizer's dream, with a whole range of astronauts with different heads.
Kind of like an update to "Matt Mason Megostyle".

They could easily make suits in different colors, like in 2001.

So let's talk customs! Anne Hathaway... Dark Knight Rises Catwoman.

and I'll need to find a Woody Harrelson to go with my True Detective custom.

Those look great. I'll have to make the TARS robot to go with them.

Any word on these, and their packaging?
They seem to have dropped off the radar completely...

I'd like to use the spare head for a True Detective custom.

All we need now is for them to meet Alien, no face huggers please.

I just find it a bit strange that they couldnt just give us helmets that came off ???, Havent seen the film, but will be getting these.

I'm not complaining you get extra heads with these,customizing possibilities there

Probably because the hair and the tight helmet would work against each other. You'd end up with either squished hair, or a really big helmet.

Did anybody get these?
I have a set on the way, but the more I see pictures of the actual figures, I start to worry. Lots of badly painted heads, a cross-eyed look. Seems like Neca still can't find a decent painter.
Outfits look great, though.

The set I got on ebay, I thought I was going to get scammed. 30 bucks including shipping and they arrived !! Yeah the paint on Neca stuff isnt great, but I suppose U have to stand back and enjoy the figure as a whole.

Wow! Bargain time!
How cross-eyed are they, Alex?:juggleyes_y::juggleyes_y:

Rik, havent got them in hand, not coming home until just under two months ;(

Gorn Captain

I just got my set today.
They look ok! Neca still needs to work on their flesh tones (too flat), but the eyes are fine, better than for example Evil Dead Ash (who looks kind of glassy eyed).
Cooper's suit is a bit scuffed, but that's from working in outer space. The faces in the helmets are the best version.
Still amazed that we got figures from this film. Maybe The Martian is next?

That must be frustrating, Alex. Long wait! If you were to go near a black hole, the wait for you would be much shorter...
