NECA have announced a line of Weird Al action figures coming up based on some of his musical parodies. Should be some fun additions. Hope they do a Michael Jackson and Nirvana one. Here's the first one on offer: http://necaonline.com/55182/products/toys/plush-and-dolls/weird-al-yankovic-clothed-8-action-figure/

I hope they do a better job on him than they did with my Alien Kane, where he came with the paint still wet.

The paint was wet? That is odd.

It came with a kind of green weathering on the helmet and it was not wet as such but tacky, which was a shame as its a great figure. Just checked it does seem to have dried now but still feels sticky at lest its not coming of onto my fingers.

That sucks.  The only neca figure I have is a Keaton batman that came out with the bluray.  I haven't opened it.  The issue with him in the package is he kind of looks like he has his legs trying to cross or something.  Just in an odd position in the package.  Here is a pic of one (not mine), but even on this one you can see his knees kind of look like they turn in or something.

Mike, that's bizarre they'd release a figure that's still tacky. Was it due to the packaging or bubble? The only example I know was a Doctor Who figure I opened and the cape was a soft plastic that felt sticky and the smell of plastic was strong (I had a good sniff lol). But after a couple of hours out of the bubble it was okay.

Bryan, yes that Batman figure is indeed odd..



They had similar problem with the Penguin figure,,


lol!

I think it was down to the type of paint they had used, after I got it and found that it was still tacky I went onto the internet and found out there were a few out there like it, so presume that  it was a bad batch of them.
