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.
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.
