That I would never buy! Was thinking how some of the choices they make seem far out there. What are some figures NECA could make that would NOT get your money? Or, what left field figures could show up and not surprise you but you wouldn't want?

My list
jiminy glick
18822
Tortelvis Dread Zeppelin
18823
Rip Taylor
18824

Still hoping for some more figures from SciFi and horror movies.

Ha! I tried to think of ones I did not want and left out ones I knew I would buy like Marlon Brando in the Island Of Dr. Moreau with little mini-me

Not what you want, but what you wouldn't want! Like Borat in his mankini!

You mean in their Mego-scale? Rambo, The Monster Squad, Highlander, the Goonies, some other 80's properties like that. (Those would all get my money.)

I must be the worst online communicator, ever! :smiley1: I think of Bill and Ted, or Clarke Griswald, or Weird Al to be very fringe hobby figures. What could you see coming from NECA that you would not spend money on, but would not be surprised to see them make? Just to be clear, I would not want a Borat figure! :no:
Example:
Flo from Progressive Insurance
18855

I kind of love how this thread went sideways!

It's kind of a tough question: what could they make that I wouldn't be interested in...

80's Michael Jackson. That could be a cool figure with great costume parts, etc. but I wouldn't be interested, unless they made him as the zombie or werewolf from the Thriller video. That would get my wallet out.

Rambo. I just wouldn't care.

Man, I'm going to have to think harder in this.

I would love to see NECA go after sports stars but I'm not sure how much of that license is wrapped up in the six inch non-articulate figures or whether the investment would get a good return.

Borat is the only one I could see them possibly making from your list. There's no way they would ever even consider Flo.

How about Ferris Bueller? I wouldn't want it, but I could see them doing that.

Beetlejuice? Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High? Bernie from Weekend at Bernies? The Karate Kid? I wouldn't be very interested. Somebody would, probably.

The 3 Amigos? Buckaroo Banzai? The Last Dragon? Goblin King from Labyrinth? I could see myself picking those up where others wouldn't.

The fun thing about NECA is Randy will answer you on twitter and is not afraid to crush your hopes and dreams. I really respect that.

Just yesterday he said "V" is a no go even though he's a big fan.

Randy is as down to earth as it gets. He's a great guy!

This inpart-thread-collapse is hilarious! I'd blame that on an early Dread Zeppelin reference, in which event I'd definitely buy a Tortelvis sure to have that classic sweet BubbaHoTep NECA vibe. ;)

A little part of me dies every time Randy laments the loss of the Apes. IE: If the Apes line died, your bad idea for toys sure as hell won't fly! responses. At least we can laugh a little together in our mourning.

Yeah, man I really blew it on explaining the premise. I agree that Dread Zeppelin might have thrown it off. I watched a few vids with them after I posted the thread and agree that a Tortelvis figure might be what the world needs (or at least me!).:grin:

Hmm, so many. They could follow Reaction figures lead and make Fifth Element figures. I wouldn't buy those. How about classic crooners Mel Torpor/Torme and Perry Coma/Como?

Jack Burton would be great! Apparently they've considered doing making an 8 inch retro figure, although I'm not sure if the project materialized.According to a response they gave to a fan on Twitter:

27 Jan 2015
@NECA_TOYS any chance of big trouble in little china figures? ever? PLEASE?

Maybe in the retro format & that's a BIG maybe

I hope they continue their Friday the 13th series in retro form. It's been enormously successful. Lots of variations of Jason to go. I hope one day they get the Halloween license. Michael Myers would be awesome. But with Myers, you MUST get that head right or the whole figure doesn't work.

Charles Bronson as Kersey in Death Wish.
Chuck Norris as Captain McCoy (beard) in Delta Force or Chuck as Braddock (moustache) from Missing In Action.

I thought Chuck Norris would have been a no-brainer, but I think we are more likely to see an Eddie Murphy figure by the choices that are being made. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

The Marvel approach of a figure with three costumes would work well for some actor figures like Stallone with military specialist attire, a futuristic cop attire like Dredd, and climbing attire like Cliffhanger.

Finished my Hateful Eight, and really hoping for some more SF/horror figures now.
Hellraisers would be my first pick.

I don't know how NECA pulls of the tailoring on the outfits that they make. The clothes for the Hateful 8 look amazing!

Those are some great ones! I would love to have an Eddie Murphy figure from Beverly Hills Cop and I think they could make Seinfeld figures in the 8inch clothed retro format as they've done with the Home Alone and Bill & Ted's.

When you remove the Hateful 8 from their boxes, you can see just how nice the outfits are made. Shirts, waistcoasts, jackets, overcoats. All in perfect scale, with tiny buttons. They are amazing.

i would love for them to make mark, jason, princess, keyop, and tiny frombattle of the planets aka gatchaman

Definitely. Those would translate well in that format, especially with the current articulation being used by NECA. They could even use translucent plastic for the visors.
