Toy Fair NY 2015 NECA Heroes of the Storm Action Figures Photos

A lot of press, including Blizzplanet, were eagerly waiting their turn on the line to take photos of the NECA Heroes of the Storm action figures. I was able to take a bunch of photos to share them with our audience.

Blizzad Entertainment provided NECA the Heroes of the Storm videogame’s model files. The prototype figures were then 3D-printed and from these, NECA plans to build the joints and articulations for the final product.

There are two things you must know about the NECA Heroes of the Storm Action Figures shown in our photos:

1. These action figures are currently prototypes, and thus they don’t have joints yet.

2. In addition, you might notice that Illidan and Nova are taller than Stitches. The NECA representative who attended me responded that the big ones are actually 2-UP figures, and that the final product will be the size of Stitches.

NECA also showcased the unpainted Tyrael and Arthas 2-UP-sized prototypes. The Illidan and Nova are slated to ship on July 2015 while all the other NECA Heroes of the Storm Action Figures shown at Toy Fair NY are currently set to TBD (To Be Determined).

I also asked the representative whether there would be more action figures based on the Heroes of the Storm license, and while not official, there might be promotional Heroes if Blizzard Entertainment requests them (Think SDCC-exclusive or BlizzCon-exclusive). Again, not official.

      “NECA is proud to present our first series of 7” scale action figures from Heroes of the Storm™, the upcoming online team brawler filled with favorite characters from Blizzard Entertainment’s vast video game universes! Created in collaboration with Blizzard, these fantastic figures feature game-authentic sculpts and nearly 30 points of articulation for great battle poses. Series 1 includes Illidan Stormrage (World of Warcraft™) and Nova Terra (StarCraft™). Illidan comes with Twin Blades of Azzinoth accessories, and Nova comes with rifle accessory and interchangeable left hand.”

Blizzplanet Heading to Toy Fair NY 2015

As a reminder, please visit Blizzplanet around February 14-17. I will personally attend the Toy Fair New York 2015 event to visit the NECA booth. The event is closed to the public, and only accessible to toy industry professionals and merchants. I am attending the Toy Fair New York exclusively as press with a badge provided courtesy of Toy Industry Association, Inc.

My intent is to find out more about the Heroes of the Storm action figure Series 1 (and hopefully Series 2). From what I have seen on NECA’s tweets, the plan is to showcase Series 1 at the Toy Fair. Thus, I plan to take photos and video. Possibly, a video interview.

Hope to have something awesome to show you guys!

Best regards,

Tom | Medievaldragon

Blizzplanet Heading to Toy Fair NY 2015 – NECA Heroes of the Storm Action Figures

Earlier today, Sunday, Jason Bischoff (Blizzard Senior Toys and Collectibles Manager) retweeted NECA — which plans to bring some Blizzard licensed products to the Toy Fair New York event through February 14-17.

Though there is no specific mention of what NECA is going to showcase, barely two months ago there was a video interview by UltimateToyCollector with NECA’s Brad Haskins who showed how NECA sculptors are crafting the Heroes of the Storm action figures. In this video, Brad says the action figures might be on sale around the end of 2015 or beginning of 2016.
