NECA Announces Gargoyles Action Figure Line

NECA Gargoyles Action Figures
Some companies choose to plan the announcements of major toy releases for months, carefully crafting their message and approach along with a marketing team and social media. Some companies rent out a major space along the water in New York City to celebrate their upcoming toys and stuff the press to overflowing with rich foods and drinks with a kick. ...And then some companies hop online at midnight and say..."Hey buds..we've been working on Gargoyles action figures. Here's the first image. You may commence drooling now."

That company is NECA. Smooth mofos!

Mondo's GODZILLA '89 Premium Scale Statue

Mondo GODZILLA '89 PREMIUM SCALE STATUE
“Godzilla and Biollante aren't monsters. It's the unscrupulous scientists who create them that are monsters.” 

This quote from Dr. Shiragami in the awesome GODZILLA VS BIOLLANTE film blew my mind as a kid. 

The movie itself is awesome, and has one of Godzilla’s coolest-looking opponents. Biollante is Godzilla’s half-sister – and a half-plant - with the soul of a human girl thrown in for good measure. A monster with tentacles and a giant mouth full of teeth (that spews a glittery acid, no less), it was a really cool design. The movie was epic and was a great comeback for Godzilla.

Young Danny Madigan (Austin O'Brien) is a lonely 11-year-old boy who escapes from his bleak reality by watching the action adventure movies of his favorite film character, Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger). When his best friend, Nick the projectionist, gives him a special ticket to the new Slater film, Danny is magically transported into Jack's world, where the good guys always win. Danny becomes his helper as Jack battles a trio of nefarious bad guys, Benedict (Charles Dance), Vivaldi (Anthony Quinn) and The Ripper (Tom Noonan). But things get out of hand when Benedict steals Danny's magic ticket stub and transports himself into the real world, where crime can, and often does, pay. Jack and Danny must leave fictional Los Angeles for real-life New York and battle the villains without the aid of movie magic or stuntmen.
