So, I asked NECA (the company making the Freddie figure)if they had any clue when we'll see a packshot or more promo shots, and they replied to me thus:

"Very soon - we are desiging the packaging now and we are doing concepts for a 2nd version of Freddie for late 2006 or early 2007/ Glad we could make you happy. We are thrilled with the response from Queen fans and from the mention on Brian May's site!"

So, there you have it folks! TWO Freddie Mercury figures! :D

Hopefully? I thought the first one they're definitely releasing (the one there are photos of) is the Magic Tour one.

Do I detect a hint of sarcasm? ;)

I have several NECA movie figures and they do an excellent job, superb detail and likeness so I'm sure the Freddie figures will be of the same high quality.

Although I can do without the gimmicky 'sound activation' feature. Hope this aint on teh Freddie figure.

Thanks! I've never seen those two pictures, but they're better than what I saw. You can see his 5:00 shadow! That's awesome!

Let's hope the NEXT Freddie figure will be the TRUE Freddie....Pre-1977!!

YES!!! Longhaired Freddie fans unite!! Enough with the overdone "80's Freddie" look okay??

This comment may have been made in jest, yet consider this:

Despite looking horridly ill in TATDOOL, he always maintained a certain grace. I actually wouldn't say no to the idea (actually, a painting of him would be better).

But I definitely would prefer a 70's one, for sure.

I agree that it doesn't really look like Freddie to me.

I'm mostly disappointed by the bland pose. I wish McFarlane Toys would have done this. All the McFarlane statues look quite dynamic. This one is just freddie standing there....

zzzzzz...

I'd love to see a full Queen box set by McFarlane, like this.
