>>5406869 If you have the money there are some decent 1/6 figures floating around, if not NECA are still sometimes doing the horror characters. They just released 2 versions of Freddy Krueger so they're still doing some.
The thing that I liked about Movie Maniacs is that they were in a time before I really kept up with toy releases so the assortments were usually a surprise, it was nice to see a movie I wanted toys from show up in the new line up. I used to buy them at a Babbages in the mall, back before Gamestop took them over or at least before they fell in line with the Gamestop business model. It was across from a Cinnabon, to this day I can't pass a Cinnabon without thinking of looking at awesome late 90s toys.
OP here. My first action figure was a Freddy Krueger from Movie Maniacs Series 1. At that time i cared little for the state of my figures so he's missing one finger, but i had fun with that one. After that, i remember looking at the back of the box anxious that someday Jason or the Leatherface figure would show up. They never did.
Another one i bought was the Terminator action figure, with Arnold covered in bullets. Lost ALL the weapons that came with him but had lots of fun playing too. Neca's Cult classics didn't have the same impact on me, sadly.
>>5406869 Movie Maniacs went to shit when they started expanded out of horror and adding non-horror characters to the line. McFarlane also got lazy with some, but added loads of articulation to others.
Neca's current figures are a cut above everything Movie Maniacs did. They currently have three very detailed highly articulated Jason figures with more planned. They did a Part 3 and a Final Chapter and Jason Lives.
Other good figures they did are their Freddy figures, but if you want a straight up Nightmare 3 Freddy, you have to swap out the arms from other figures. They designed them that way for some odd reason. Their Ultimate Freddy is very good also.
>>5409286 It wasn't that they got lazy but different sculptors were working on different figures that had different budgets, the characters deemed less popular went to the low end sculptors and got less articulation.
>>5409611 SOTA was such a joke when it came to licensed properties, Jerry was insane, he was going to do the Werewolf last iirc but then it bombed so hard that he couldn't do it. We all remember his nonsense personal preference choices in the Street Fighter 2 line right? IDK how Pop Culture Shock stays in business. Nobody wants a $400 Dhalsim statue dude.
>>5409491 Either Neca's Part 3 or Part 4. Both have tons of articulation. Expect to pay around $80 for one though. The Jason Lives figure is also good, but the sculpt is loads better on the other two figures.
>>5408508 >Another one i bought was the Terminator action figure, with Arnold covered in bullets I've still got that one with all of its accessories! The poster's a bit faded now but I never display it with that anyway.
and also back around Halloween someone asked NECA if they're working on anything Child's Play related to which Randy responded with "perhaps" fast forward to a day or 2 ago, Randy revealed there will be 2 horror Ultimate figures revealed at Toy Fair. You do the math.
Also after they finish working on their Ash vs Evil Dead line, they're going to work on an Ultimate Ash (Hero ash with more leg articulation, source is NECA's Twitter) and Ultimate Jungle Predator will happen sometime in the future.
NECA's Ultimate Line = Modern Day Cult Classics Line They should just rebrand it as the Ultimate Cult Classic line
