SDCC-2014- Figures-com-NECA-Blizzard-Heroes-of-the-Storm

Figures.com brings us news that NECA announced they have the license for Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm game. While they had nothing to show, aside from a placard with some art on it, they will be doing at least one wave of 6-7 inch figures. It is not clear who will be in this first wave, but the art does feature characters from the different Blizzard properties that appear in the game including:
Illidan Stormrage (Warcraft)
Stitches (HotS)
Nova (Starcraft)
Tyrael (Diablo III)
Arthas Menethil aka The Lich King (Warcraft)

Heroes of the Storm is Blizzard’s answer to League of Legends and DOTA2 featuring characters from their many properties including StarCraft, WarCraft and Diablo.

FANtastic Exclusive 2007 Update

FANtastic Exclusive 2007 Box of Ramathorrs Post Banner

After a long series of delays and setbacks, the Four Horsemen have given us a long awaited updated on the status of the Exclusives from last year.

To bring everyone up to speed, the first factory gave everyone the run around trying to avoid being shut down. Eventually, they were closed their doors and neglected to let 4H in on the situation. Fortunately, with a little intervention from some friends over at NECA, the molds were salvaged and a new factory was hired. That is a very short description of what happened over a very long period of time. The figures were produced at the new factory and pre-production samples looked very very promising. The large shipment of figures was scheduled to be shipped March 20th, 2008. They are hopeful that they will be in with enough time to bring them to NYCC to sell at the booth the Four Horsemen will be sharing with Action Figure Express. Eric Treadaway mentioned that due to some order cancellations that there would be a good opportunity for singles and sets of the whole Anitherian Nine lineup available, though, he was not specific on details.

You can read it all here or look after the jump for the original text. The link also has some pictures the factory sent the 4H of Ramathor in production.

We’ve been following this series of figures for a while now:
