I’m not very familiar with Garth Ennis’ Preacher comics, so I went into the AMC adaptation pretty cold. And though I can’t speak to how well it represents the comic, I can say that I very much enjoyed the first season. And a big part of my enjoyment for the Preacher series came from the cast. It would be no easy task to assemble another trio of leads with the same strong chemistry as Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, and Ruth Negga. Gilgun, in particular, does a great job as the rarely sober Irish vampire Cassidy. So, now that NECA has revealed their first wave of figures for Preacher, I’m pretty stoked. I would have preferred it if they could have had a Tulip figure for wave one as well, but I’ll take Cassidy and Jesse.
And if that’s not enough good NECA news for you, their Ultimate Evil Dead 2 Ash Williams action figure is now available early, through their eBay and Amazon stores.
Details on NECA’s Preacher Action Figures Series 1
These Preacher action figures are based on the characters appearance in the AMC series, and not the comic. As such, they have an (authorized) likeness to Cooper and Gilgun.
How Tall Are These Figures?
The figures will be 6.75 inches (17.1 cm) tall. Both figures will also be fully articulated, though NECA hasn’t share specific details on the articulation yet.
What Accessories Do the Figures Come With?
Cassidy comes with a bottle of Rat Water whiskey and a couple of bottles of Hard Hammer Lager (both fictional brands in the Preacher universe), while Jesse comes with a couple of bottles of Hard Hammer Lager, the coffee can that, at one time, housed Genesis, and a book with a blue cover. Other sites are calling the book a bible, but it says “hymnal” on the cover, so I’m not sure.
Where Can I Order these Figures, And How Much Do They Cost?
Right now, the pair, who will be individually packaged, are available for pre-order over on Entertainment Earth, for $39.99.
When Will the Figures Be Available?
According to NECA, the figures will be available starting this December.
