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

by Jay Cochran

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.




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 Nada figure due 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, though note this is not a super hero show intended for younger ages.



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. What do you think, would you love to see NECA do figures based on The Boys?

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.

I really hope it is The Boys action figures, I've been waiting on some one to get the license , NECA would be the right people

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