[UPDATE May 26]

The man might be the hottest place to hide – and this San Diego Comic-Con exclusive is freezing cold. Today, NECA is bringing fans an exclusive figurine of The John Carpenter Thing. The figure, which stands 7-inches tall and features an LED light in the head, recreates the iconic light burst from the poster. It also comes with interchangeable and removable faceplates, and is packaged in an easy-to-display 5-panel window box packaging, inspired by the movie poster. This figure will be $50.

[UPDATE May 25]

NECA takes you into the world of Dungeons & Dragons today with a brand new column exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con. This Dungeons & Dragons – 4″ Scale Action Figures – Lost Wave 4 Pack presents a set of “lost” Dungeons & Dragons miniatures, reproduced to match the original prototypes that never saw the light of day.

But NECA brings Pulvereye, Skylla, Kelek and Valkeer to life in 4″ scale, with posable figures. Pulvereye, Kelek, Valkeer also feature awesome “Battlematic” action, and the set includes signature accessories and weapons, and an individual blister card for each figure styled like the original figure line. The set of four figures is packaged in an outer box with logo.

This set will be priced at $100.
