Back in July
we told you how we thought NECA might be teasing figures based on the hit Amazon series The Boys. Well it turns out we were right. Sony
today sent out a press released talking about various products that will be coming ahead of the second season's premiere. In that release they state NECA
will be doing a 7" figure based on the homicidal Superman type character named Homelander
. For now it looks like those two are the only figures slated for release, but hopefully we will see more figures from this property done down the road. The press release also states that NECA is working on a special product for consumers around the fan-favorite character Laser Baby from the first season. Not sure what that is but doesn't sound like a action figure. Hopefully NECA will be releasing images of the figure soon.
See the entire press release below:
Ahead of the highly-anticipated second season premiere of “The Boys” on September 4 on Amazon Prime Video, Sony Pictures Consumer Products (SPCP) is helping fans celebrate (or not celebrate) the ‘Supes’ with a robust line of consumer products offerings, including apparel, accessories, collectible toys, costumes, novelty and home goods.
