Guillermo del Toro is becoming an action figure. NECA will produce a limited run of 2,000 action figures of the most recent Best Director Oscar winner for SDCC this year. NECA is also producing figures based on his films, such as Pan's Labyrinth and The Devil's Backbone. The figure features cloth clothing, stands at eight inches tall, and comes with his book of notes used to create Pan's Labyrinth. Here are some photos of the figure, first seen on EW.com:
Guillermo del Toro creates dark, beautiful movies, infused with a visual poetry that speaks directly to the heart of the viewer. In conjunction with the launch of the Guillermo del Toro Signature Collection of action figures, #NECA celebrates the visionary film director with his own figure.
This fully articulated tribute stands 8" tall and comes with a replica of the notebook del Toro used to record his notes and sketches for the award-winning movie Pan's Labyrinth.
