TNI Forum member metalingus let us know about a rumor that NECA has obtained the license to make figures based on the upcoming Kick-Ass 2 sequel.
He says the first series of 7" scale figures will include Hit-Girl, Kick-Ass, and MF’er
and that each figure will have 20 points of articulation
and movie accurate accessories. Mezco held the license for the first Kick-Ass movie.
We asked Neca on Twitter
if they would be doing figures and this was their response:
"That would be cool wouldn't it? Original was such a great movie"
Now that certainly isn't a verification by any means but if it wasn't true they would have likely just come out and said so. Never-the-less we should know for sure shortly when the New York Toy Fair
kicks off. Check back starting next weekend (2/9) for complete coverage
of the event.
Kick-Ass 2 stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison and Jim Carrey and is set to premiere on June 28th, 2013.
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010's irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.
When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.
Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there's only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
