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!

The industry lost an immense talent recently: Steve Dillon, Preacher co-creator and brilliant artist. After the terrible news was released, we spent some time honoring Mr. Dillon by rereading some of his work, like Punisher: Welcome Back, Frank. Now, we want to further celebrate his work with a Preacher raffle. A couple lucky winners will receive Season One of the AMC show on Blu-ray, as well as a reprint of Preacher #1 with a cover by Steve Dillon and signed by Preacher co-creator Garth Ennis. Many lucky runner-ups will receive the reprint of Preacher #1 with the Steve Dillon cover signed by Mr. Ennis.
