NECA

Word out of the UK ToyFair this week, is that NECA have snagged another 3 game licenses for their sprawling Player Select videogame-based action figure line...

  • Dead Space
  • Prototype
  • Devil May Cry
  • Dante's Inferno

Devil May Cry

Was first developed by Capcom Production Studio 4 and published by Capcom in 2001 for the PlayStation 2. It is an action game set in modern times on the fictional Mallet Island, the story centers on the characters Dante and Trish and their quest to confront the demon lord Mundus.

The story is told primarily through a mixture of cutscenes, which use the game's engine and several pre-rendered full motion videos.

Devil May Cry received prominent coverage in the video game media, high overall scores from professional reviewers, and has sold more than two million copies.

It will be interesting to see what Neca make of this license there has this is the first time that the license has been acquired for the mass market outside of Japan.

Dead Space

Dead Space is a third-person survival horror-action video game, developed by EA Redwood Shores for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows and released in October 2008. The player takes on the role of an engineer named Isaac Clarke, who battles a polymorphic, virus-like, alien infestation which turns humans into grotesque alien monsters called "Necromorphs", on board a stricken interstellar mining ship named the USG Ishimura.

Prototype

In Prototype, players take control of Alex Mercer – a dark, genetically mutated shape-shifter with no memory of his past, hell-bent on solving the mystery of his existence as he tears through a densely populated New York City moving with Parkour-style fluidity and consuming anything that gets in his way.

'Deceive or Destroy' gameplay allows gamers the choice to either blend in with the population and covertly progress through the story, or fully unleash Alex’s powers, and move through New York City like a walking slaughterhouse, taking control of military vehicles, and causing destruction at every turn.

Dante's Inferno is being created by Dead Space creators EA Redwood Shores for Electronic Arts, so expect some amazing things and plenty for NECA ro mine for figures, no doubt!

This multimedia project is a fresh take on Dante Aligieri's epic poem trilogy, The Divine Comedy. However, this is no college course in literature -- instead, it's a dark, visceral, action-packed adventure that will take you to hell... literally. The bitter flaws of humanity become the horrors you must battle as you venture through the nine circles of the underworld -- Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Anger, Heresy, Violence, Fraud and Treachery.

No word at present whether these will form a general Player Select release or will see a dedicated line like Gears of War. I expect we'll find out more at the US ToyFair in a couple of weeks.

Hasbro

Clone Wars turned out to be quite a success in 2008 and seemed to be generally well recieved.

As a result 2009 will see Hasbro introduce a host of new STAR WARS 3-3/4-INCH CLONE WARS BASIC FIGURES, allowing fans to stage incredible battles with an expanding assortment of action figures based on STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS characters.

But that's not all...

As well as THE CLONE WARS, Hasbro will be expanding its STAR WARS collection with several exciting new offerings to be announced.

CLONE TURBO TANK

The CLONE TURBO TANK is an enormous field vehicle from the animated series, designed to transport up to twenty clone troopers (sold separately) into battle. The TURBO TANK features electronic sounds, running lights, phrases from the animation, a hidden, launchable speeder bike and a removable command center.

STAR WARS 3-3/4-INCH THE CLONE WARS BASIC FIGURES

Available: Fall 2009

In 2008, Hasbro introduced an array of action figures based on the hugely popular STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS TV series. This year, Hasbro will release dozens of new figures based on characters from THE CLONE WARS entertainment, including Kit Fisto, Mace Windu and Commander Gree. Each figure comes equipped with action features or accessories, allowing fans to re-create their favorite scenes from the TV series.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS DELUXE VEHICLE & FIGURE

Transformers

With this year being the 25th anniversary of the ROBOTS IN DISGUISE and the new upcoming movie, Hasbro is "rolling out" dozens of TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE toys that showcase the innovation and depth that have been synonymous with the toy line since its inception.

Featuring numerous styles and varying levels of complexity, Hasbro’s 2009 TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE toy line will appeal to a growing fan base that – after 25 years – spans multiple generations.

While the toy line will include popular characters kids will recognize from current and recent entertainment, the line also pays homage to the brand's roots with many classic 'bots from its extensive stories and unique mythology. Of course, much of TRANSFORMERS’ popularity remains rooted in its origin: over-the-top animation that shows the ongoing feud between the AUTOBOTS and the DECEPTICONS.

Launched last year, Cartoon Network’s new TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED series continues the animation tradition with fantastic storylines that feature favorite characters like OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE and even MEGATRON.

The new TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED line of toys lets kids experience the adventure in the playroom as they recreate scenes from the weekly show using a number of exciting, new action figures.
