The National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) just revealed a Guillermo del Toro line of collectibles at San Diego Comic-Con. As reported on by Bloody Disgusting, this line has been kicked off with Fauno and the Pale Man from del Toro’s legendary film, Pan’s Labyrinth, as well as the ghost of Santi from The Devil’s Backbone.
It’s unclear what else will be included in the line. Del Toro is a prolific director and writer of horror, fantasy, and sci-fi, and he has a lot of films to choose from with visually stunning characters that would look great as action figures. Hellboy, Pacific Rim, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, and even Crimson Peak all have some great characters to choose from, though admittedly Hellboy and Pacific Rim have all had plenty of figures made for them before.
These are some great-looking figures. I’m a big fan of Pan’s Labyrinth myself and would love to get a hold of that Fauno and Pale Man.
So these look really promising, and, hopefully, we’ll be seeing more out of this line soon. It should be really a group of really cool collectibles.
