Longtime fans of Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator rejoice: NECA landed the rights to Re-Animator from Re-Animator Productions and are looking to design 8” Mego figures based on the film.
This is very exciting news, as a lot of fans of the film have been wanting new officially licensed figures for some time now.
There has been no official street date announced nor which figures are being produced yet, but Randy Falk, director of product development for NECA had this to say. “I have been a longtime fan of Re-Animator and know that there are lots of comedy sci-fi collectors waiting for a new Re-Animator figures. It will be a perfect addition to NECA’s line.”
Brian Yuzna, president of Re-Animator Productions and producer of the Re-Animator films, said: “We are excited about our relationship with CLC and its ability to get the Re-Animator brand out to fans internationally. “Re-Animator is a horror classic with a passionate fan base that will be well served by CLC’s relationships with top producers such as NECA.”
Rand Marlis, CEO and president of Creative Licensing, concluded: “Re-Animator is a film about a scientist who invents a way to re-animate deceased bodies. It is full crazy, gory, over the top scenes that fans have come to love. We are excited to continue to build out the merchandise licensing programme for this film.”
There have already been a few figures created for Re-Animator, but only Herbert West. Maybe this time, we can have a few other figures in the line like, Dr. Hill, Dan Cain, or Megan Halsey, or some of the other re-animated souls that West and Cain bring back in the film.
Only time will tell. Hopefully with San Diego Com-A-Con coming up more details will unfold.
