    As of this morning, the Walmart in East Stroudsburg, PA had about 4 or 5 Hooper action figures.

    Apologies. My response was for the all-plastic Neca Hooper figure not a clothed Mego-like figure.

    I noticed there was a pricey diorama recently released with miniature versions of Quint and Brody. I wonder why that was able to get released while the Neca figure wasn't.

    There are now 2 different Jaws Hooper/ Dreyfuss figures for pre-order. I think the Brody situation might be a changing.

    Understood but from everything I've read, Dreyfuss declined. Schneider's estate was initially on board, which is why we had Brody as part of the pre-order, then they pulled out.

    I've kept my pre-order because it will still look great as a set with Bruce. My understanding is Dreyfuss didn't want any part of it. I don't get him. He seems to always be on the wrong side of this film and its products.

    I must admit I cancelled my preorder when the other figure was cancelled, but Im tempted with these pics, also with the shark coming out, it should make for a great display.

    Exactly. Not to mention, the character Brody is more recognizable to younger generations than Roy's own name as an actor. Roy would be almost 90 years old if he were still living and you'd think now would be as great a time as any to finally release an articulated and photorealistic action figure from what some would consider to be his most iconic role.

    They may not have been getting enough of a piece of a pie. And I get that "some money" is better than "no money" but maybe they originally agreed to a percentage but have found out that it's going to be smaller than they thought, or that NECA was set to make more money than they thought?

    Certainly possible and if they value the likeness, perhaps they think something better will come along.

    I was sad to see the figure get pulled out. He was so very well done. What a likeness! Having that figure would have been paying homage to a great actor in a great movie.

    Thatís too bad. I would have loved both, but at least Quint is my top choice.
