NECA Toys Toony Terrors Series 2 Figures Review

NECA Toys Toony Terrors Series 2 Figures Review

 

NECA Toys second wave of their Toony Terrors are currently shipping, and this wave includes Pinhead (Hellraiser), Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and Michael Myers (Halloween 2), with Chucky and Tiffany that are based on Bride of Chucky are also available.

This new figure style is an animated take on some of the most iconic horror film characters in cinematic history, and judging from the style it is assumed that the inspiration for these cartoony takes comes from shows like Scooby Doo, and is a fresh take on these characters that has never been offered like this before. This wave covers three more film franchises offered in this style and takes off where series 1 left off, and this new style is less frightening in appearance, brighter colors and they even appear not as notorious killers, but as monsters that won’t give you nightmares.

Thank you to NECA Toys for providing their Toony Terrors Series 2 Figures for review. 

Availability: November 2019

The Toony Terror figures are packaged on a blister card packaging with a bonus cutout backdrop that are based on their film. Just like the figures, the backdrops are also animated inspired and can be used for display behind the figures as shown in the gallery.

 

This second wave brings you Leatherface, as he appeared in 1974’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre. This figure comes with his iconic chainsaw accessory, and is sculpted and textured in his beige apron, with a tan chest, purple tie, dark blue jeans and black shoes. The head sculpt features a human face over Leatherface’s, with stitches around the edges, and holes in the eyes and mouth. His mouth is nicely done with the teeth being separated and the tongue sticking out. His hair is sculpted back and lines up with the edging around the mask. The chainsaw fits in both hands, but you may have to loose up the plastic in the hands to get it to fit.

His articulation includes a swivel head, swivel shoulders, and swivel elbows.

 

Michael Myers is based on the classic Halloween 1978 film and offered in this new animated style. The figure is sculpted and painted in a dark blue jumpsuit, light blue under shirt, and brown shoes with black lining. His head sculpt included his iconic white mask, with brown hair that is sculpted back, and his skin can be seen below the mask, and his hands. Included with Michael Myers is a knife that has a black handle, grey blade and a light blue shadow, as well as a pumpkin with a skull on it.

His articulation includes a swivel head, swivel shoulders, and swivel hips.

 

Hellraiser is long overdue for new figures, and Pinhead joins this new style, as well as getting an Ultimate 7″ scale figure next year. As seen in the 1987 movie as well as its sequels, the figure comes in his black outfit, with saws sculpted around his waist, with his grey flesh tone sewed to the outfit as seen in the film, but dialed back for this new style. The black outfit has sculpted lines and patterns, that look really good up close. His head sculpt includes the nails, but these look more like lumps, with sculpted lines in the head that is a pattern and looks like a webbing that connects the nails. The facial details look good, especially the black eyes, which is a nice touch. Included with Pinhead is the Puzzle Box, that he can hold onto.

His articulation includes a swivel head, swivel shoulders, and swivel wrists. The arms and hands are sculpted this way so he can hold the Puzzle Box.

 

Overall, the Toony Terrors are great figures and have excellent sculpts with a friendly cartoon appearance. Fans of these characters that want something new should definitely look to pick these up.
