Evil Dead 2 (NECA)

Evil Dead 2

The Evil Dead films was a series I used to really, really like. Then they became cult classics, and everyone seemed to be talking about them. Maybe I'm just a greedy sort of guy, but I really don't like hearing conversations from people about films I'd known and loved for years like it's some sort of brand new thing. This has happened to me with films such as Clerks, Dazed and Confused and of course, Evil Dead.

But, I suppose these films weren't made specifically for my enjoyment and like all things, there's bound to be millions of fans for any one thing.

The irony of the popularity of Evil Dead is that there really wasn't any merchandising surrounding the series. Not even the most commonly known Army of Darkness. It wasn't until developers such as NECA, Mezco and to an extent McFarlane Toys popped into the toy scene that we really, in general, started seeing a lot of unconventional toy series. Of course among them was Evil Dead, Army of Darkness, and the character Ash above all.

Though it was a very limited series, NECA's 2012 Evil Dead 2 line will fill the void you may or may not have in the way of Ash action figures. The downside to this is that you're going to get a whole lot of this figure and not particularly anything else. Beyond Ash, Henrietta was the only other figure produced.

Like most things NECA related, this line has skyrocketed considerably on secondary markets. Individual (carded) figures can set you back anywhere from $30.00 to $60.00 for the basic seven and eight inch lines and upwards of $100.00 or more for the SDCC exclusives.
