I'd love to see somebody do figures from The Big Lebowski, Fight Club and Pulp Fiction. 

Three cult classics for our generation.

Someone's doing The Dude and Walter from The Big Lebowski, so hey, that's something.  :)

I just saw Cult Classics 3 and the 12" Frank the Bunny this weekend. CC3 looks pretty good though i'm only interested in McClane. Frank the Bunny on the other hand was FANTASTIC! The paint app was a world of better from the 6" version. I would have picked it up but my b-day is right around the corner. I did drop mad hints to the Mrs though...  ;D

Scored the Endoskeleton from Cult Classics 3 today. It's great. I think the McFarlane version's face is more sinister, but this new one has a bigger gun and size really does make all the difference in the world.  :)

NECA announced that they got the Harry Potter license. They also showed alot of cool pieces at Comic-Con.

Among them were the Shaun of the Dead Winchester 2 pack with Shaun and a zombified Ed.

A figure from the upcoming Grind House movie.

A bunch of new NBX stuff. Including Behemoth and the Easter Bunny.

Hopefully they will update their website with some pics.

Anybody still collecting anything from here? 

I picked up an S-Mart Ash the other day.  I'd picked up a regular, medieval (?) Ash earlier in the summer and didn't even realize they were doing the S-Mart version.  I was tempted by the Highlander box set as well but it's just too damn much up here ($40).

Picked up S-Mart Ash, Michael and David from the Lost Boys and the Hare Krishna Zombie from Dawn of the Dead a few weeks ago.

If i ever see the Simon Belmont figure i may pick it up. I am also hoping they make a really cool Casey Jones figure with their new TMNT line.

I've picked up a few lines to take pics of for the ToyTraderz Toy Database, but I haven't ended up keeping anything.  The figures look *fantastic*, but for the most part I just can't get into the mini-statue "action" figures.  I've had issues with quality and durability as well.  More than one small piece has snapped while taking them out of the package.

That being said, I'm 99.9% sure I'll be keeping the AVP-R and Castlevania figures.  :)

I have all of the Hellraiser figures from a few years back and I think they did a fantastic job on them, but I've not picked up anything else from NECA.

I'd still buy them, if I could find anything but Pirates figures. Someone that works at the local Spencers cleans out all the Shaun of the Dead and Army of Darkness stuff, leaving the remnants.

I did buy quite a few of their POTC figures, but I dropped off on those when they went up to $15 each.

Their AvP:R stuff looks good. I might pick up the Warrior Alien & Masked Predator.
