NECA Retro Home Alone 25th Anniversary Figures
At Toy Fair earlier this year, NECA revealed they had the license to Home Alone. A lucky few fans and visitors to their booth got to have a look at their Home Alone 25th Anniversary Retro Figures. Now they have revealed them all to see and they are absolutely fantastic.
The figures we will be getting are Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) and the two Wet Bandits Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern).
If you have not seen the film (who hasn’t?), it’s about Kevin who gets left home alone by mistake during the hectic preparation for a family holiday. Harry and Marv are two burglars who rob properties when one no one is home and leave the taps on hence they call themselves The Wet Bandits. They decide to rob Kevin’s home thinking it’s empty. Kevin then has to defend his home until his family comes home. It’s an absolutely fantastic comedy classic.
I never thought NECA would release figures from Home Alone, hell I thought no one would. It’s a fact that NECA is a fan of the film and to commemorate the films 25th Anniversary NECA have created retro figures of the three lead characters and they look incredible.
The likenesses are phenomenal, especially on Culkin and Pesci. I can definitely see Stern there too. The fabric clothes on them look fantastic too, especially the Wet Bandit coats and Kevin’s jumper. I think these figures will most likely use the type 2 body so they’ll be just as articulated as the other recently released retro figures.
Accessories wise, they’ll all come with interchangeable heads. I really love them especially Kevin’s smirk expression and Harry’s burnt hat head. Kevin will also come with alternate hands, BB gun, the bike handle/zipline handlebars and the Little Nero’s Pizza Box (keep the change you filthy animal !)
Harry will also come with a crowbar, drawstring burglar sack and a kaleidoscope. Marv will also come with a crowbar, drawstring burglar sack and snow globe.
I honestly can’t wait for these figures. I know they’ll be out before Christmas and you can bet I’ll be getting all three. I can’t wait to see what original artwork they use for the packaging. If you’re a Home Alone fan these are must haves.
They’ll be released in November and will cost around $30. Pre-orders are currently available here.
These figures were first on display at San Diego Comic-Con, among a ton of other things. You can check out the full gallery for the NECA SDCC 2015 Booth right here.
