The replay is up so anyone who missed it can catch the whole thing. It was a great episode and Randy shared some really interesting info about the inner workings of the toy industry as well as talking about cool things NECA is working on. If you have ever wondered why companies do things like put our figures with 5 POA or reuse the same molds multiple times you should check out this episode.

Two questions i wish some one would ask is

Can they ever or would they ever go back and redo any figures? Like redo there die hard ith better artic and better face sculpt. Or any of there mostly statue type figures.

My other question is could they ever make a clint eastwood from any of his movies westerns or dirty harry?

They would have to get Clint Eastwood Likeness rights for each movie, I don't know if they can or not but doubt it would be profitable enough form them to try. Same probably holds true for Bruce Willis, they would probably have to go back an re-get his likeness rights to do any kind of new Die Hard figures and it probably would not be profitable since my guess is the rights for both those actors don't come cheap.

We plan to have Randy back on the show in a future episode though so we can certainly ask him about those then.

Can you also ask if there is any chance NECA will do Game of Thrones figures?... Thanks...

There are "figures" coming out already from another company.. so I doubt it. If they were to pursue the license, I'm sure it'd have to be for a different scale, like 18" or something.

Yes. I feel NECA should pursue the Game of Thrones license. Its one of the hottest shows in TV and has got loads of characters. Neca could mine it just like Mcfarlane is mining The Walking Dead. I think Dark Horse is the first to make figures based on GoT but honestly they are just statues (no articulation) and man do they look like crap. NECA could do GoT justice and make proper figures.

P.S. Another series that can benefit from being a NECA toy is probably Spartacus. Too bad the show is already over so that ship has already sailed. But who knows, maybe the rights holder or owner are still looking to make more money down the road and agree to action figure licensing... *crosses fingers* :P

Actually they are reairing Spartacus with "UNCUT" iterations of the seasons so doing some figures for the show would actually be pretty cool and a good way to get it noticed. The actual story is done though so there is that. :/
