Neca has a very thrilling announcement for fans of their 1/4 scale line. Their well received The Joker from The Dark Knight, Batman 1966, and Superman 1978 are getting the 7″ treatment as part of a Warner Bros. DVD promotion – “exclusively in physical Toys R Us stores and online in the official Warner Home Video eBay store!”
These figures will only be available at Toys R Us stores and online at the Warner Home Video eBay store. The level of detail that Neca has retained in representing their 1/4 scale line of figures in 7″ format is impressive. The figures are worth getting on their own and we strongly recommend picking them up as fast as you can.
This announcement came as a big surprise despite considering the great success Neca found with their Batman 1989 movie bundle they presented last year. The Michael Keaton Batman figure was presented in similar Kenner packaging to that of the original figure and is now one of the most sought after of collectibles.
I know had we announced this in advance, eager fans would be driving Toys R Us crazy with calls and visits asking about them, so it made sense to keep it all secret until we had them in stores or on trucks to stores the very day we dropped the reveal. It was all carefully orchestrated and planned, and I am thrilled with how it’s played out so far. – Randy Falk to 13thdimension
