    Was just over at the NECA site (since I heard they have the Pan's Labyrinth license, but their site has nothing on it), and spotted these.

    I need this one to go with my Kain.

    Not overly thrilled with this one. I don't see how it will look good without the lighting they use in the pic.

    And I know my brother is gonna go banana sandwich for this one.

    There's two versions of Kratos, the one you see and another with the mouth opened. I prefer this one.

    Glad you agree. This one not only looks better than the old ones, but looks free of anything that's gonna break.

    I'd love to see some Beyond Good and Evil figs from this line. A complete change of pace from the stuff they're doing, but that game really does need some love.

    And a JC Denton from Deus Ex would be rad as well.

    And maybe some Oblivion stuff.

    He's pretty awesome. Did they still have Grendel? He's creepy as hell.

    Alucard and Simon are the obvious must-haves. I'm not sure about Dracula though. The Succubus is sexy, but I don't think I'd buy it. Besides, she comes with a Flea Man. Nevermind the mandatory fight with Death, Flea Men (and those flying Medusa heads) are the bane of my Castlevania existence.

    Ya know, with all the statues and figures out there of barely dressed, impossibly proportioned females that are drop dead fantastically impossibly sexy, why the hell not produce them naked already?

    Succubus is naked....Kinda.

    Initial Sculpts had her boobs out, the ones that will be released have cloth over them that can be removed.....unless they are changing that......that could explain the delay.

    well, did you read the newest ish of new avengers? With spider-woman in the shower? I mean, just draw all the chicks naked already. They're trying to be all clever by covering it up...no one would care if it was just all out there all the time.

    Well, I think if they're going to draw completely anatomically unrealistic women, they may as well make 'em naked.

    Not really. Dracula is in the most amount of games, but not always.
    The succubus is a common enemy.
    Simon is from the first and second games (he might be in more, but I don't remember).
    Alucard is from the game that is without question, the best Castlevania. Symphony of the Night. I've been playing the PSP game, and it's a blast. The Rondo of Blood remake is quite good, plus it has Symphony.

    Succubus and Dracula are in pretty much all of them, Simon is in the earlier set ones, Alucard is in a few.


    If you want to start playing these then i suggest that you need to start with Castlevania: Sympnony of the Night. It was originally released for Playstation but was recently rereleased in the Dracula X Chronicles (for DS or PSP, I can't remember) but it's 2 games in one and SOTN is one of them.


    It was the first one I played that got me into it....it's frikking awesome.

    If you have a 360, it's on Live.

    Other highlights are the two recent DS titles, Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin.
