NECA Toys is working on their very own iteration of Nathan Drake from Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. They're slowly chiseling out the figure and crafting a highly detailed rendition of the iconic action hero and fans of Uncharted can now get their first glimpse at what the Nathan Drake figure looks like.
Gamespot took note of the figure from NEKA Toys' official Twitter account, where they teased fans with the following image.
The figure is still a long ways off from completion, with NEKA Toys stating that the figure won't be arriving in all its full figured glory until spring of 2016.
The figure isn't colored, but has various important pieces chiseled out already, including the arms, wrists and torso. It's hard to tell right now if the arms will bend at the elbow joints, but it looks like that may be a no-go. The knees, on the other hand, show joint manipulating between the calf and thigh. So expect this Nathan Drake figure to at least be able to bend his knees. As the image depicts, the right knee is still being worked on and doesn't appear to be bendable in the current iteration of the figure.
The figure will likely be as moveable as many of other NECA's figures, which range from Jason Voorhees from Friday The 13th, to Sylvester Stallone from Rocky. They even have Arnold Schwarzenegger from Commando and Terminator, along with classic icons such as Robocop, the Predator and the Xenomorphs from Aliens. While that list may contain a bunch of movie names, they also have tons of game stuff as well, including Duke Nukem, Gears of War, Borderlands, Devil May Cry and even Portal. You can check out the full list of various licensed property that NECA Toys handles with a catalog listing on Big Bad Toy Store.
A lot of collectors can't wait to get their hands on the Nathan Drake figure and add it to their collection. The figure will launch alongside Uncharted 4, which is due for release this upcoming spring. The game was originally scheduled to launch in March, but Naughty Dog wanted to iron out a few more things before having the game go gold for the PS4, so they delayed the launch by a month and moved it into April.
After Amy Hennig left the production and Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley took over as the creative directors they made some significant changes to the way the new Uncharted game played out. One of the things Straley and Druckmann recently unveiled was that players would have some options in the cinematic sequences to choose what Drake says. They didn't discuss the significance of the dialogue options but I'm assuming it may result in potentially different results in some of the cinematics... maybe?
