When it comes to action figures, bigger truly is indeed better. 2016 has seen a steady surge of the coveted Quarter Scale 1/4 action figure with none other than NECA leading the charge. The reason? Well not only are they amazingly well built, they are gorgeous in style, paint apps, likeness & articulation. And truth be told, not every Junkie can plunk down $200-$350 on a HOT TOYS piece every few weeks. NECA has found a way to level the playing field and the future is looking very bright for the New Jersey based toymakers. AFJ was able to sit down with Head of Product Development Randy Falk to get some answers about the gestation of their 1/4 scale line, what’s in store for the rest of 2016 and what we can expect to see in the future. While it has been months since my visit to NECA HQ, I still marvel at what I got to see in person and it further proved why Randy and his group of dedicated craftsman are the Quarter Scale Kings!

Article by Gregg Katzman; Trinity #1 by Francis Manapul and Steve Wands

When DC Rebirth’s Trinity series was announced, what did you immediately expect from it? You know, aside from amazing artwork, because that’s obvious whenever Francis Manapul is attached to a project. The excellent cover revealed the three iconic heroes (Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman) and several villains reflecting in Diana’s sword. I don’t know about you, but when you have a comic featuring DC’s Trinity, part of me was expecting an epic blockbuster. After all, how many times have we seen these classic heroes save the world? It’s basically what we’ve come to expect at this point. I purposely avoided previews – I wanted to go into this one totally fresh. Would this be just like the many other team-up stories that started with pure action and set incredibly high stakes? Much to my surprise, that isn’t what happened… not even close.
