NECA has found a cool little niche in the toy market that they’re capitalizing on as quickly as possible – and I’m more than okay with that.
Fans who attended the San Diego Comic-Con this past July scored an 8-bit Jason Voorhees based on the “Friday the 13th” video game. Then, immediately after, NECA revealed they’ll also be making Freddy Krueger from “A Nightmare on Elm Street” available for the holidays.
Then what? They’re pulling the trigger on “Robocop”. They teased the next 8-bit action figure in the below image, and also implied that we may see “Predator” down the line (hopefully Dutch).
What other 8-bit figures would you like to see on your shelf?
Wiki explains that “RoboCop” was released in 1988 by Nihon Bussan/AV Japan. In the game, a player controls RoboCop who advances through various stages that are taken from the 1987 movie. The bonus screen is a target shooting range that uses a first-person perspective. The intermission features digitized voices from the actors.
Several reworked versions appeared for home computers and video game consoles, most of them handled by Ocean, as well as a NES version ported by Sakata SAS and published by Data East.
