Opened the NECA POTC figures I got last week today. As expected, the details are really nice. Each figure includes a base and the bases can be matched together with other figures from the series. I am thinking of grabbing the Maccus and Palifico figures so I can put together the Flying Dutchman diorama.
The Bootstrap Bill figure includes the treasure chest with Davey Jones' heart in it just like the movie. On the Davey Jones packaging, it says it includes a treasure chest and heart, but mine didn't come with any. It's okay for me though since I got them in Bill's figure.
The Cursed Pirate figure is quite neat, I always had a thing for skeleton figures. However, it is quite flimsy and a little hard to make it stand up. It did come with a clear stand that goes into his back to support him.
It feels good to be able to finally open these figures. Due to the lack of play time lately, I've been only buying and not opening. Sure they do look good in their packaging, but they look even better out of their "plastic prison".
The Dead man's chest...love the detailing on the chest!
Davey Jones' beating heart...
The Cursed Pirate...
My NECA figures
For NECA figures, I do gladly sacrifice articulation for detailing. I just love holding the figures in my hands and checking out all the details on them. Not to mention they look good in pictures!
