About this deal

This NECA Ash 7" scale action figure is highly articulated and has been given the Ultimate treatment and comes complete with four interchangeable head sculpts, chainsaw, mechanical hand, wood hand, hand stump, photo of his car, and shotgun that fits in a back holster so he comes with everything needed to fight a plague of Deadites once again. The jacket itself is yellowed and filthy, like it’s been drenched in piss and OH MY GOD, I JUST REMINDED MYSELF OF THE SCENE WITH KELLY AND THE BEDPAN. The problem is that the package clearly shows Ash holding his axe over his shoulder and behind his head like the movie-poster/ publicity shot I mentioned earlier. The legs have rotating hinges in the hips, double rotating hinges in the knees, and both hinges and lateral rockers in the ankles.

From the 1987 movie starring the one and only Bruce Campbell, we present the definitive collectors version of Ash! Ash does use a chainsaw in The Evil Dead but it's a different model from what he uses in the sequels. Ash features the likeness of the one and only Bruce Campbell, and comes with three interchangeable heads, chainsaw, axe, shotgun, lantern, tape player, and more!This definitely captures his younger appearance and NECA did a great job on the details of the outfit.

NECA didn't include certain significant props like the shovel, the film axe, the Kandarian dagger, and the Naturom Demonto, so I could see those helping to anchor a second release.NECA has given Ash the Ultimate action figure treatment—he comes with four interchangeable head sculpts, chainsaw, mechanical hand, wood hand, hand stump, photo of his car, and shotgun that fits in a back holster… Everything he needs to fight a plague of Deadites. Sam and Bruce are executive producers, so that's good, but I'm not sure how (or if) it'll connect to anything else.

One of my pet peeves for lines like this is sometimes you just get a bunch of versions of the hero and no one for them to fight. It actually comes from this promotional shot where Bruce Campbell is clearly a bit older and has a different hairstyle. The 7” scale figure is highly articulated and comes in collector-friendly deluxe window box packaging with opening flap and bonus lenticular cover. I've long collected Evil Dead figures ever since the first Movie Maniacs figure from McFarlane Toys and while we've had plenty of figures from Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn, Army of Darkness, and even Ash vs. That's not too unique or anything but it does allow you to see the figure nicely displayed (something Hasbro isn't planning to allow us to do for much longer).It’s a great look for him and it makes him appear as if he’s been stalking the halls of the Asylum and fighting its inhabitants for years.

Anyway, this version of Ash is from Episode 8, where he’s fashioned himself a new set of battle fatigues from the remains of a straight jacket. He seems sturdy enough (my last real NECA QC issue was back in the first series of the Aliens line, so I've been pretty satisfied with them) and there's a solid range of movement from most joints.Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer unless specified by ourselves Geek Bureau Ltd.
