If you recall at SDCC earlier this year at the bottom of NECA Toys Horror Booth they had two boxes. One had an Evil Dead 2 poster on the cover and the other A Bride of Chucky poster. At the time NECA didn’t detail what would be in the boxes, though I guessed what was inside and it turns out I was correct.
NECA is re-releasing its Ultimate Evil Dead 2 Hero Ash from the Evil Dead 2-Pack that came out a year or so ago and the Ultimate Bride of Chucky from the Bride of Chucky 2-Pack which I’ve got. What’s most surprising to me is that these are Wal-Mart Exclusives. I should note that not all Wal-Mart’s are selling these but a select number of them. I’m guessing NECA has made a partnership deal with Wal-Mart to sell NECA figures with some store exclusives which is awesome. Now I’ll be hunting in Wal-Mart’s for NECA figures as well!
In the Ultimate Evil Dead 2 Hero Ash box you get the brand new updated Hero Ash from the 2-pack as well as all his accessories which were his two alternate heads, shotgun, Kandarian dagger and the Necronomicon.
In the Ultimate Bride of Chucky you get the Chucky from the Bride of Chucky 2-pack as well as the two interchangeable heads, a pistol, knife, axe, necklace and interchangeable hands.
As I missed out on the Evil Dead 2-Pack which goes for crazy money on the secondary market I’ll definitely be picking up Hero Ash as I’m a big fan of the Evil Dead series as well as Bruce Campbell. I’ll definitely be picking up Chucky too as you can have enough Chucky’s in my opinion!
I know that these will be a Wal-Mart exclusive in the States and it’s unclear how they’ll be available internationally but I would definitely somehow get my hands on these as these are fantastic looking figures and I’m thankful that NECA are re-releasing them.
These figure are available in Wal-Mart now so check out your local stores over the coming weeks!
