It's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce reviews!

This week, we're having a look at 2 of the NECA figures that were available during the NECA Haul-a-Thon at Target, the black and white version of The Universal Monsters Wolfman, and Griff Tannen from Back to the Future 2. The NECA Haul-a-thon was a 4-weeks event that happened at Target and on, where a bunch of figures were available for a limited time there, before being available online everywhere.

First off, the Wolfman, as portrayed by Lon Chaney - I had picked up the black and white Frankenstein monster, so now, I have to pick all the other ones in black and white as well, don't I? Isn't that the rule? Anyway... The figure comes with a beautiful art box (as is tradition with NECA), and has a ton of accessories: 2 extra headscuplts, including a Lon Chaney one, along with human feet and hands to turn your wolfman into a... man, his wolf's head cane and a wolf trap. It also comes with a tiny stand because since the feet are wolf-like, it wouldn't be able to stand. A cool figure, looking forward to have more of them to crowd the movie shelf.









Griff Tannen, Biff Tannen's grandson in 2015 was a figure I was really looking forward to, since it's one that has the most crazy outfit from the 'future' (as imagined in the late 80's). Tom Wilson played both Biff and Griff in the movies (spoiler?), so the headsculpt, which was already great on the young Biff Tannen figure, is still pretty spot on. Griff comes with a second headsculpt (without helmet), his extendable baseball bat and his Pitbull hoverboard (or Pitboard). Just like the BTTF2 Marty, the board comes with a little transparent stand so that you can display it as if it were hovering (why haven't we figured out that technology by now?). A fun figure! There's still one Doc Brown from the first movie that was announced and should come out soon, and after that, maybe we'll start to get figures from Back to the Future 3? Crossing fingers...
