I was wondering when one of the topline toy companies would get around to this one. I would’ve expected Funko to get there first, but NECA is releasing a deluxe action figure of The Nun, aka the demon Valek. It looks pretty flippin’ sweet. It should be available sometime in the first quarter of next year. Considering how much their exclusive Captain Blake (from THE FOG) figure runs you, I expect this one to be out of my price range, too.

NECA does make some gorgeous figures, though. They’ve got new versions of Pennywise and the Amphibian Man from THE SHAPE OF WATER. If I were going to drop a wad of cash on a figure, though, it would either be the aforementioned Captain Blake figure or the Pale Man from PAN’S LABYRINTH.

NECA figures are now available at Target, which is good news for collectors. The retail juggernaut wisely is attempting to fill the void left by the closing of Toys R Us by stocking items that were formerly available only at specialty stores. I’ve already been seeing FRIDAY THE 13TH and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET figures on Target shelves. Expect to see THE NUN joining them before too long.
