NECA’s Groovy Evil Dead 2 Figures Will Swallow Your Soul

The second series of action figures based on everyone’s favorite horror/comedy is upon us and, in typical NECA fashion, they look fantastic and are tons of fun to play with.  While Series 1 included two awesome iterations of Ash (you can find Bill’s in-depth review here), Series 2 introduces the film’s most memorable baddie, Henrietta Knowby, and rounds out the collection with “Hero” Ash, which depicts the character’s most iconic visage – complete with chainsaw hand, sawed-off shotgun, and torn up shirt.  Let’s take a deeper look at the new line along with NECA’s SDCC exclusive Hero From the Sky Ash figure.
