It had to happen someday!
NECA is to produce an 18 inch Freddie action figure with sound chip. As one could expect, the chosen outfit is … Wembley 86!
No pictures yet, but you can check out their John Lennon

NECA usually makes excellent sculpts, so that’s very good news overall. I can’t help finding the scale rather silly, though; it would hardy look good on one’s desk. Hopefully it will be made in a 7’’ range eventually.

Oh so cool!!! Me too, I want one!!

Thanks for sharing, I've marked that page as a favorite so I can keep checking back - NEED PHOTOS!!!

You're right about the scale, though. 7" would be grand. Should we all send them a message of request?

I LOVE the Lennon one, and was actually thinking the other day how awesome it would be if NECA made Freddie...



...Crap... So much for my break. :P GREAT news, anyway!

FALL TS05: New Music Figures from NECA

For those about to rock...

NECA has announced a new line of figures based on past and present rock-and-roll legends.

Figures slated to be released in early 2006 include:

18” John Lennon in jean jacket, jeans and sunglasses. Figure includes voice chip with numerous phrases/ lyrics.

18” Freddie Mercury in yellow jacket with half-stand microphone. Figure includes voice-chip with numerous phrases/ lyrics.

7” Jimmy Page in dragon-embroidered suit playing a double guitar.

Devo Boxed Set featuring the group from their “Whip It” video.7” AC/DC Boxed Set featuring Brian and Angus Young and cannon. Figures/ cannon will feature music/ sound chip with “firing” sound and music (“For Those About to Rock”).

NECA will follow up their 18” music figures with 7” figure as well and later hopes to include other rock legends - such as Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain - in the line.

Look for more on this series and other NECA products in the near future…

This is going to be awesome. The only thing I would change would be his outfit. I would prefer the checkered one from the News of the World Era.

lol, I thought I was going mad for a second. over here NCEA are the people who run our exams and stuff. Nation Certificate in Education Acheivement or something like that. I thought if NCEA were making Freddie action figures, i might just forgive them for making the english exam so bloody hard. oh well, maybe not.

I actually have the DEVO action figure (hey...Roy Thomas Baker produced Queen AND Devo...what's with that?) and it's fabulous, 7 devolved inches of radiation-suit clad spud and 5 (count 'em, pinks!) interchangeable heads of band members, 1 blazing red energy dome for securely stowing the doll's simulated sexual chi flow, and a whip to crack and give the past a slip. Duty Now for the Future!

Anyway, forgive me I digress, but if NECA do a Freddie Mercury doll, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. The above mentioned action figure is completely worth it.
