|OTHER FIGURES -|
The year is 2006, NECA has announced they're releasing a John McClane action figure! Fans rejoice and the praise showers down upon NECA. Then, the figure comes out and the only thing showering down on NECA, was something golden colour. The John McClane action figure is through and through, awful, just absolutely awful. The face is the worst thing on him and would only look like Bruce Willis, if you squinted your eyes shut and looked at the figure in a pitch black room. The proportions are all wrong, with a weird stretched face and bulbous nose. The lower part of his body (from the neck down) looks okay. They did a pretty good job on the body sculpt, but the paint work on the other hand, ruins anything nice about the body. Weird hairy arms, black eyeliner and poorly painted blood work, definitely shows signs of a figure NECA could care jack shit about. As for articulation, it's beyond limited, with movement only in the the head, shoulders and ankles (extremely limited here folks!). The only accessories are a movie related base and machine gun.

I can't recommend the John McClane action figure from NECA. The only reason I bought it myself, was because it came in a bundle with other figures (plus I suffer for my readers, so they don't have to). This is an easy pass and hopefully NECA will someday down the road revisit the Die Hard series and give us a true proper John McClane. Until then, witness my photographic attempt at trying to shed a nice light on an unpolished turd, below.
