Could NECA Be Teasing Action Figures Based On They Live And The Amazon Series The Boys???

Recommended Posts

NECA today rounding out their Comic-Con At Home coverage released a few teaser images for upcoming products so that we might guess what they are. The first tease they posted were some images of weapons.

They-Live-02__scaled_600.jpg

This one seems fairly obvious. Our best guess would be that these weapons are for more 8" Retro figures based on the movie "They Live". The Shotgun looks very much like the one coming with the 8" Cloth Retro Nada figure they have coming out very soon.

We are thinking maybe a new 2-pack with a second version of Nada and Frank Armitage. Of course we would love to see NECA do 7" Ultimate figures based on They Live, but the 8" Cloth Retro figures seem more likely.

The second tease is obviously some kind of heat vision effect piece. Since NECA has previously done DC Comic based figures, you might think this was a tease for some kind of new Superman figure. Based on conversations I've had with NECA, I don't think any more DC Comic based figures are in the cards for them anytime soon, but there is another super being who is well know for using heat vision. Meet Homelander from the hit Amazon series titled "The Boys".
 
 


The Boys which basically tells a story about superheroes going rogue will soon see the release of a second on the Amazon streaming service, and has already been renewed for a third season. If you haven't seen season 1, we highly recommend you check it out.

So our best guess is that NECA is teasing that they have obtained the license to do figures based on this series and if so, we hope they go the 7" Ultimate route as opposed to the 8" Retro Cloth one.

And I will just say if the tease ends up being for Brightburn, I will be disappointed.

Agreed.......like you, Astro City to me was pretty good.

I was referring to the toy line...Do you remember the line? It was pretty pitiful IMHO

I think the company was called Z toys or something.  Remember?

Like you Astro City was nice. Maybe a NEW Astro City  Show and Toy Line is the ticket =^)

I remember seeing a figure of Samaritan in a comic shop once. I would have purchased it but you're right it wasn't very well made. I would but a Samaritan figure if it was made as well as marvel legends figures.

Back in July we told you how we thought NECA might be teasing figures based on the hit Amazon series The Boys. Well it turns out we were right. Sony today sent out a press released talking about various products that will be coming ahead of the second season's premiere. In that release they state NECA will be doing a 7" figure based on the homicidal Superman type character named Homelander and Starlight. For now it looks like those two are the only figures slated for release, but hopefully we will see more figures from this property done down the road. The press release also states that NECA is working on a special product for consumers around the fan-favorite character Laser Baby from the first season. Not sure what that is but doesn't sound like a action figure. Hopefully NECA will be releasing images of the figure soon.

See the entire press release below:

Ahead of the highly-anticipated second season premiere of “The Boys” on September 4 on Amazon Prime Video, Sony Pictures Consumer Products (SPCP) is helping fans celebrate (or not celebrate) the ‘Supes’ with a robust line of consumer products offerings, including apparel, accessories, collectible toys, costumes, novelty and home goods. The show’s initial wave of products is being sold on its home platform on the Vought International themed storefront on Amazon. Select products are now available on Amazon with additional products being released throughout the year and in 2021.

The press release says Homelander and Starlight figures from NECA.  Only Homelander is in bold text though.

well I like this news! , I'm sure Homelander and Starlight are just the 1st two figures , and granted the figures sell well and there is a demand I'm sure we will see other characters, I know they arn't going to not give us a Billy Butcher that is who everyone wants

Was hoping for a Homelander reveal on Friday to coincide with the premier of season two but NECA says the cape isn't ready. Who knows though maybe a Starlight reveal can be made.

I saw the movie Men at Work on HBO when I was ten and thought he was absolutely hilarious.  He also seemed very familiar, and I couldn't figure out why.  Being ten years old, I had yet to see The Thing, They Live, or Platoon.  I came to find out later than he had been in several episodes of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood when I was four years old.

He's a very talented and underrated actor with a great voice.
