    I've been avoiding NECA because...reasons. But this one got me to preorder. I've so much love for the original LJN figs, and my main beef with the first release was how dark it was compared to the original toy. It's like how the LJN-colored Ultimates Lion-O really pops on a shelf in comparison to the toon version.

    That said, I'll need that retro-colored Warduke, too, sooner than later:

    For all of their faults, NECA does some awesome stuff sometimes!

    Yeah I have wanted the LJN releases. But I am buying both. Warduke is fan-fucking-tastic

    I have no attachment to this era of D&D or these toys, just wondering why Grimsword got left out of the vintage-inspired decos all the others pictured are getting.

    Always get a chuckle out of one of the figures casually being “Young Male Titan” and that’s it.

    It’s funny that I have no attachment to the LJN figures but I love the updated ultimate ones. I only wanted Warduke and for fodder but now I have 3/5 and want them all.

    Met up with Elkhorn while out questing at Target. This is the main one I wanted so it’s really awesome to add him to the party. Doubly great that I found him in the wild and was able to cancel my preorder. I hardly ever find anything in the wild anymore (from any toy line) so its extra exciting when I do.

    Going to need that retro carded version as well.

    I really hope that neca does figures based off the dungeons and dragons arcade game especially of the 1p and 2p verisons of fighter and the cleric and with that side i also hope they dont try to do that stupid video game type of skin tone and just copy how they made this wave of dungeons and dragons figures with more realistic colors n tones

    i hope the bigger characters are scaled down in this line, max humanoid type character should be the grimsword size and even thats pushing it.

    I wouldn’t mind if characters like Titan and Ogre King were larger, but the others I would definitely prefer to be the size of Grimsword/Warduke/Strongheart.

    Speaking of size, I think Elkhorn is a bit too big. I mean, he looks AMAZING and I love the figure but the original was a tiny little runt next to the others. I think the only reason he’s so big is because he shares a lot of parts with Zarak. If they could have found a way to share the mold but make him a couple centimeters shorter (slightly shorter torso? Shorter shins?), that would have helped a lot to set him apart from Zarak and give him a more squat physique.

    Very minor gripe though, Elkhorn is everything I wanted from a modern version. The treasure trove of accessories is really great too.

    Ogre king yea i can see him being bigger, but titan nah he shoupd be based scale like strong heart too. The original line seemed to have the same problem transformers did where they just dumped a bunch of different lines into one banner. Also isnt elkhor the same size as ,Zarak? But yea he seems big but i like that he is nearly scaled in toy form not lore to the other figures

    The Neca Elkorn is the exact same size as Neca Zarak, yes. The original Elkhorn was way shorter than the original Zarak though.

    If Neca had shortened Elkhorns legs a bit he would have looked more like the original in proportions. Doesn’t really bother me though, I adore the figure. My favorite of the D&D line so far. He looks really great with Strongheart.

    Idk mam hoesntly im sick of action figure lines charging nearly the same price for less plastic, meaning making the figures smaller or way too big thatnit seems like a the collection is from different toy line. If he was smaller i dont think i would have even bothered to get him. I know the original line had the whole transformers ideals going for it but i hope neca ignores it and continues to make the figures in scale with the plastic not lore.

    The base was originally for Mythic Legions Sir Enoch.

    That doesn't come out until 3rd quarter 2024.
