NECA to Produce Premium 8-Inch MLB Figures in 2016



By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

It’s not just Imports Dragon that are making MLB figures in 2016. NECA is joining in with a line of action figures of their own.

NECA’s come with several differences that should give them a slightly more premium appeal over the ones put out by Imports Dragon and McFarlane before them.

The 2016 NECA MLB figures stand approximately eight-inches tall. Rather than being posed figures that don’t have any movement, these come with more than 20 points of articulation. This means that you’ll be able to set them up however you like. Figures also come with accessories. Likenesses are highly detailed and come fully authorized.

Uniforms are tailored to the player and and made of cloth.

No images have been released yet, but if you’re looking for something similar, the MLB figures are expected to be done in a similar style to NECA’s recent Hateful Eight and Home Alone figures.

The first wave of 2016 NECA MLB figures is slated for a summer release. Six figures make up the initial release. A second series is also in the works, although it’s still in the early stages.

2016 NECA MLB Series 1 Figures Checklist

A tentative lineup for Series 2 includes Bryce Harper, Andrew McCutchen, Anthony Rizzo, Jacob deGrom, Jake Peavy and Yadier Molina. This could still change, though.
