New York's American International Toy Fair February 17, 2011
It's your favorite well-behaved boy, the singer! Let's all give it up for the singer. Iggy Pop has, amazingly, somehow, been licensed by NECA making an entire generation of punk fans, rock fans, and fans of old dudes thrilled. Shown with two unique head sculpts, this figure should be out later this year. Also in music, new Iron Maiden figures of Eddie are on the way.
In the realm of movies, I'd say figures from the original Terminator (which we were told were not completely approved as of yet, so I assume these may or may not happen) were really astonishing. Most merchandise comes from the three sequels, so this was a nice change of pace given he doesn't wear a leather jacket in this one. Also exciting, more Predators from Predators. More Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Krueger figures were shown spanning the run of the series, with loads of arm articulation and in the case of at least one figure, giant arms. A fairly robust extension of the Gremlins license was shown, including a swell "flasher" Gremlin from Gremlins 2: The New Batch.
Other offerings: Harry Potter figures and knickknacks, more BioShock action figures, and... Jeff Dunham bobble heads and action figures. If you love Walter or Peanut, this is your year. That's the price of being given the likes of Iggy Pop, so says the hand of fate.
