Sergeant Craig Windrix

You may be surprised to learn that there was no mention of Sergeant Craig Windrix anywhere in the Alien mythos, be it movies, books or even comics.

Wasp Predator

After getting me some of NECA’s Predator figures and fulfilling my requirement for movie-based designs, I just knew that I would still go back and get some more of these figures even if they were actually non-canonical versions of these alien hunters.

Xenomorph Warrior

When I began buying NECA action figures from the Predator and Alien series of movies, one figure I kept my eye out for was precisely any of the different Alien creatures.

Scout Predator

Ever since I wetted my beak into NECA’s Predator figures, I wanted to get the original Predator from the first film, or at least a passable approximation, and this Scout Predator from Series 6 fits the bill perfectly.

Ezio Auditore (Eagle Vision)

This figure of Ezio Auditore was released by NECA as a San Diego Comic Con Exclusive in 2012, but it was also available in 2013 from Blockbuster and Game Planet stores in Mexico City.

City Hunter Predator (Ghost)

According to the back of the package, this Predator is also known as “Ghost” and is a member of the Lost Clan, which are the group of aliens that appear right at the end of the movie.

Brute Splicer

Brute Splicer

The Brute Splicer is supposed to be some sort of brawler, and the character design certainly conveys that impression. The Brute has most of his mass distributed onto the upper torso, with impossibly massive arms and a decidedly rotund paunch. The legs are also quite thick, but next to the upper limbs they tend to look ridiculously thin.

Sad Gizmo

I wasn’t really expecting to find Gizmo. After all, he was featured in Series 1 of NECA’s Reel Toys line devoted to the Gremlins movies that was released a couple of years now, so I was fairly sure I would probably never find him in the wild.

Brown Gremlin

The Brown Gremlin is something of a generic army builder type of figure, and uses the same body mold we got with the Flasher Gremlin in Series 1, only this time we don’t get the soft rubber trench coat and the color is different.

Lenny

The first gremlin I got is Lenny, who appears in the second movie and seems to be what one would call a “special” type of Gremlin.

Ezio Auditore (The Mentor)

Ezio Auditore The Mentor, wears clothing very similar to the garments he used in the Italian City States, and NECA did a really good job in capturing in plastic the look of the digital models.

Private William Hudson

As one of the few Colonial Marines left standing in James Cameron’s Aliens movie. It totally makes sense to me that NECA chose Private William Hudson to stand alongside Corporal Hicks in their Aliens action figure line.

Corporal Dwayne Hicks

My more recent NECA purchase is based on a character from one of my favorite movies ever, James Cameron’s Aliens. Of course, I am talking about Corporal Dwayne Hicks.

Ezio Auditore (Legendary Assassin)

Today’s review will be about the main character in the Assassin’s Creed series of games, none other than Ezio, Auditore Da Firenze in his Legendary Assassin garb.

I was not really expecting NECA to follow through with their 1:18 scale Gears of War action figures. I figured they’d do the first series and leave it at that, but apparently I was wrong and they came up with three more figures for Series 2.

Augustus Cole

The last character in NECA’s second wave of 1:18 scale Gears of War action figures is Augustus Cole. Again, not having played the GoW videogames, I have no real personal connection to the character, but I will concede that he is possibly the best looking in his wave.

Psycho Bandit

I am still one generation behind as far as gaming consoles go, meaning that I have no means of playing Borderlands 2, a game that served as inspiration for the subject of today’s review.

Dutch (Jungle Extraction)

Right from the start, I knew that I would go for the Jungle Extraction Dutch. Even though Arnold Schwarzenegger appears only during the first third of the movie in this uniform, I think this is the look that better depicts his character.

Marcus Fenix

The latest figure I picked up from NECA’s 1/18 scale Gears of War line is none other than the main hero, Marcus Fenix. Apparently he already was a recognized war hero even before the Locust War broke out, but again, just by looking at the figure you can tell he is supposed to be a tough-as-nails warrior.
