In addition to their NES-inspired line of toys, NECA also premiered a retro line last year, which saw the release of highly articulated action figures made in the classic style of legendary toy company MEGO. Freddy and Jason kicked off the line with a bang, and last month the company announced that Ash Williams would be joining them, later this year. Who's next? Well, we need look no further than Toy Fair to find out.
The 2014 Toy Fair began yesterday in New York City, and NECA unveiled several new additions to their retro line, including Iron Maiden's mascot Eddie, Deadite Ash from Evil Dead 2 and 'sack-head' Jason, from Friday the 13th: Part 2. Perhaps most exciting, however, is the first ever action figure of Part 5's Roy Burns, aka imposter Jason, which has been one of the most anticipated horror toys over the years. Jason Takes Manhattan is now the only installment in the franchise that hasn't been honored with its own action figure.
