Our friend Rick E @blanka1212 on Twitter asked us if we knew anyone besides LEGO who might be making Lone Ranger toys. We gather he's wanting some legit action figures. Our latest look around the world of plastics revealed a familiar friend that just announced some new licenses..and now.. one more...mayyybe.
NECA!! Those masters of the amazing movie themed 7 inch action figure recently announced three new movie licenses they will most likely be showing off next week at the New York Toy Fair. To recap, those licenses are...
Pacific Rim: NECA will kick off their line with three 7 inch "DX" figures of Knifehead Kaiju (a massive monster that surfaces from 5 miles below the sea), Yeager "Gipsy Danger" and Yeager "Crimson Typhoon".
Kick-Ass 2: Again, they kick things off with 3 figures including Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson), Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) AKA Motherf*!$er.
After Earth: This action figure perfectly recreates Kitai, who shows great poise despite his youth, wearing a special body suit!
As you can see, we spotted new signage for all three licenses but this time, a fourth sign was hung alongside them...and that was for The Lone Ranger. Longest. Build Up. Ever. Why? Because we have absolutely no information to go along with it, other than our assumption they will be 7 inches and include at least The Lone Ranger and Tonto. Duh. We are also assuming this is NECA's license just because the sign was up there with the rest of NECA's signage. It's a pretty good assumption though.
