New San Diego Comic-Con "Pixel" Simon mini-figure...

Talking about a blast from the past...

NECA announces that they will be celebrating the launch of their highly-detailed Castlevania action figures (see "NECA's New Castlevania Simon Belmont Figure") with this surprise San Diego Comic-Con exclusive addition.

The "Pixel" Simon Mini-Figure is based on the look of the original Castlevania vampire hunter, Simon Belmont, and how he appeared on the original 8-Bit NES platform.

This figure is a non-poseable resin mini-figure that stands about 3" tall. He will be packaged on a small blister card that re-creates the original game artwork and background. This mini-figure will be available only at the San Diego Comic-Con and will be limited to 1000 pieces.

There should be a whole line of those dot graphics figures devoted just to CV.

I like 8-bit just as much as the next guy, but this element of retro is really unnecessary.

I'm blown away at how shitty that is. Not surprised that it's a NECA release. I think they're highballing the 1000 piece demand for this turd.

if its made out of chocolate, then its acceptable. Otherwise, it looks like something i would have made in my 10th grade 3D art class.

Pixels are square.

This figure is apparently made of cookie-dough, not awesome and win.

Awful. It looks like one of those pictures you get when you melt those circular plastic beads together.

Look like it's made of play-doh, with plastic it should be very easy to mold square corners, unless they based the model on a screenshot from an emulator running with a 2XSaI filter.

I couldn't agree more. Their RE 4 figures looked like mutants.
