NECA Toys had some great exclusives this year at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, including the Pennywise Derry Charter Engraving Version, Terminator 2 John Connor With Bike Box Set, Karate Kid, the Batman vs. Predator, Superman vs. Alien offerings and our personal favorite the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “Capture of Splinter” box set. New York Comic-Con will also see some great show exclusives such as their teased Sinestro Corps Predator figure.
Thank you to NECA Toys for providing their SDCC 2019 Exclusive – Pennywise Derry Charter Engraving Version Figure for review.
Availability: San Diego Comic-Con 2019
Pennywise is packaged in a window box with an opening flap and features debased printing and foil accents. The back of the packaging has images of Pennywise in various poses showing his accessories.
The Pennywise Derry Charter Engraving Version figure is sculpted with the same figure base as previous seen with his other releases, which is an old fashioned circus clown outfit that is painted in black and grey as he appears in an engraving of the Derry town charter. The paint work is extremely well done and captures the life-like appearance of Pennywise as it was shown in the film. The grey tones are followed by multiple paint washes and the shading helps bring out all of the tiniest bit of detail.
Pennywise includes some of the same accessories that he came with in previous releases, including some repainted offerings that match the figure quite nicely. This includes a grey balloon, a grey left hand to hold the balloon, an extra head and a red balloon. The red balloon is a nice touch with this new version and helps make him stand out even more. The grey balloon matches the figure quite nicely so its whatever your personal taste is regarding posing him.
Overall, the Derry Charter Engraving Version of Pennywise is a great exclusive and definitely worth obtaining if you are able too at this point. The figure has a very detailed deco and works well with the other Pennywise figures. The only drawback is that the left hand still has that tiny hole that the balloon has trouble fitting through, and your best bet is to try to make it a little bigger without breaking it.
