NECA Making Hunger Games Action Figures

Posted by Luke Brown On November - 16 - 2011

Our favorite toy manufacturer and yours, NECA, will be making Hunger Games action figures to tie into the upcoming films. The line officially starts behind us for the first Katniss Everdeen figure.

There are few licenses out there that doesn’t at least have a few products produced by NECA. Whether it’s their line of video game weaponry and action figures based on Gears of War, classic film franchises like Gremlins and Nightmare on Elm Street, or music icons like Iggy Pop and Iron Maiden, you can bet NECA’s got something cool based on the property. Though they already do make a small line of Hunger Games products, the line has been based so far on the original trilogy of books. News came today that NECA will be making action figures based on the upcoming film adaptation. Via Twitter, NECA responded to a fan asking if there would be figures for the Hunger Games. Their response? An emphatic “Yes!”

While the case could be made that NECA wasn’t talking about figures based on the way the characters would be portrayed in the movies, it’s highly unlikely. With the success of the Harry Potter and Twilight lines based on the films, it’s a pretty safe assumption that NECA’s line will indeed be based on the likenesses of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark. Outside of those two major players, we can only hope to see figures based on Rue and Gale, along with further lines focused on the sequels. Our fingers are crossed for a Finnick figure. What? He’s awesome.

We’ll keep you posted when more about NECA’s Hunger Games figures becomes available. In the meantime, you can follow their Twitter for more constant updates on what’s new with the toymaker.
