As many of you long time readers know, NECA got their start in the horror action figure foray by taking on the license for Hellraiser and finally bringing Pinhead and co. to plastic form.
Basking in that memory, we’ll take this moment to give thanks to the newly formed DeConte Figures & Collectibles for taking such a risk, only I wish it had been with something a bit more demanded. Still, this is very cool, and could be the start of something quite special.
This Rhode Island based toy company has their first line of licenesed product out that will surely be a suprise to quite a few horror fans out there. Based on the charcacter from the 2006 movie Behind the Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon.
They have just released their 7” action figure of the slasher “Leslie,” played by Nathan Baesel, and limited edition reproductions of the mask & scythe props from the movie. There are also limited edition versions available, limited to 100 and signed by Director Scott Glosserman, Actor Nathan Baesel & Sculptor Neal DeConte.
“We’re trying to do things that you won’t see from other toy companies out there, I love the obscure stuff, always have and always will,” said President Neal DeConte, who started the company in 2011.
Other upcoming releases will be their 10” statue of Kane Hodder as the first of their “Cinematic Heroes” line, Spider One, lead singer from the band Powerman 5000, and the Finland based band Lordi will be the first of their music series. READ MORE
