Would You Want Neca Universal Monsters?
« on: September 10, 2019, 08:16:03 PM »
What would you all think if Neca acquired the license from Universal to make figures of the classic Universal monsters?

Honestly it would be pretty awesome for me! I love the Neca Godzilla line and to have detailed articulated figures of all the classic monsters would be awesome

After all the line is perhaps more fitting for Neca than Godzilla is due to how much use they could get out of all the monsters

They could repaint and retool Kharis to no end, release special Black and White/Color variants, and so forth

I would buy a Neca Wolfman so fast
I must insist upon one thing. Under no circumstances are you to go out onto the moors at night.

Graboids!

Happy Halloween!

Neca does do stellar work on most of their licenced characters. Why not! There are multitude of versions of modern Horror characters. It would be grand for more Universal Monsters.

"Hell yeah!!!!" should have been an option (as long as they don't have to use the new style guide).

What size / price range?

I'd like to se more toys - not looking for any museum-grade collectibles.

Standard 6 inch articulated figures much like their Godzilla, Friday The 13th, Pacific Rim, Alien lines

That's pretty much all that they deal in. I would love it because I prefer figures to statues which has been a large hindrance when it comes to collecting Universal Monsters

I (and many others here) have been wishing NECA would get the Universal monsters license and do ultimate versions of the beloved monster characters. An Ultimate Wolfman right out of the gate would be great!

I would love that... especially so if they would give ‘em that deluxe, boxed treatment.

They would be 7", poseable, museum quality sculpt & paint...at Target prices. It's called "win/win".

I don't think I've ever seen anyone ask them about getting the license to Universal

They have always been huge in horror franchises, there are more than enough fans that would love a Frankenstein or Wolf-Man

I've said it before and I'll keep saying it a million times...but NECA's UM Headknockers are some of the finest (if not the #1 FINEST) pieces of merch ever created of these characters. The likenesses and detail are unparalleled.

A couple years ago I asked Randy (NECA Founder) on Twitter if they would ever make more UM stuff.  He replied and said he would love to but they lost the license. He also agrees their Headknockers are some of the best things made of the Ol' Monsters.

So YES!  If NECA made UM stuff it would be an absolute dream and I would buy them all in a heart beat!

Their bobble heads are probably some of my favorite Universal Monsters merchandise, so I'd be all for it!

Completely agree with you and Count Z. The NECA Headknockers are in a league of their own. I don't usually buy bobbles, but those are a work of art. Reasonably priced, too.
