Our friends at Scream Franchise Examiner have interviewed Neca’s Randy Falk about their upcoming Ghostface figures, and some positive news has come out a common critical point…
“We have heard from some of the fan community that they are not happy with the mixed mediums and the use of soft goods which is disappointing but in an effort to please everyone we are going to make a running change in the production and switch to a sculpted skirt. That way both versions are on the market and those who don’t mind the fabric and want to pose the legs more can buy the initial soft goods version and those who prefer the fully sculpted all plastic figure can wait and purchase that version. We listen and value the fan’s opinions and want to try to satisfy everyone. So here is an exclusive behind the scenes look at how the lower part of the figure will be revised. We are keeping the fabric on the sleeves as I really don’t like how this looks sculpted and again we want people to pose and articulate the arms and have the fabric move with it in a way that makes logical sense, like how fabric or a long sleeve like that would really move in real life”
While the mask issue might remain a talking point as it has been fully approved and locked for production, the compromise of altering the cloth “skirt” shows a marked improvement on the prototype as well as a sign of good faith on Neca’s part. If you were unsure about purchasing, does this change your mind?
