NECA has acquired the license to Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited sequel to the science fiction classic, the company announced Monday.  Categories named in the announcement include figures, die cast vehicles, replicas, and games (which presumably will be produced by NECA’s WizKids games division). All of those categories will be represented with 2017 releases, the company said, with more details available at Toy Fair.

Promotional materials for the film are now starting to flow, including the first trailer (see “’Blade Runner 2049’ Teaser Trailer”).  It will premiere October 6, 2017 (see “Best in Shows – Q4 2017”).
