NECA BioShock Toy SeriesEdit
The NECA BioShock Toy Series is a series of figurines created by toy/figurine manufacturer NECA. The series features the BioShock series' most iconic characters and enemies; such as Subject Delta, the Big Daddies, the Little Sisters, the Big Sister, and even the Splicers. Replica props are also part of the series.
BioShock 2 LineEdit
"The hulking armor clad Bouncer wields a massive drill on its right arm and attacks by slamming his enormous head into its target at high speed. Bouncers can also use their drill to bore their prey at close range. The Bouncers are the lower form of Big Daddy and are assigned to safeguard the Little Sisters in Rapture."
A large, highly detailed Bouncer figurine standing at around 8" tall. Features articulation and removable tanks.
"Subject Delta is a prototype from the initial line of Big Daddies, known as the Alpha Series. Delta was the first Big Daddy to be successfully bonded to a Little Sister, but in a traumatic event he was violently separated from her. After ten long years, Subject Delta has mysteriously reappeared and found himself with a unique trait among Big Daddies: free will. The Alpha Series is more streamlined and agile than later Big Daddy models, making Subject Delta one of the most powerful forces in Rapture. Wielding a hand-mounted drill and an extensive armory, Subject Delta has embarked on a single-minded quest to find his former Little Sister and be reunited with her."
This figurine measures 7", and depicts Delta armed with his Drill. He has removable hoses and backpack tanks, interchangeable drill arm and unarmed arm, and ball joints at the shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees and ankles.
"Big Sisters are Rapture's fiercest predators. Despite being covered in armor they posses deadly agility and can strike from anywhere. Charged with protecting Little Sisters, Big Sisters keep an eye on all the ADAM in Rapture and punish anyone that disrupts the balance. Able to throw objects telekinetically, leap off walls for powerful melee blows, throw fireballs, execute devastating charge attacks and even extract ADAM directly from living Splicers, Big Sisters are the worst nightmare of anyone unlucky enough to draw their ire."
This figurine measures 7", and includes the Big Sister's basket in which the Little Sister figure mentioned next can be placed. She has ball joints at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees ankles and ab crunch.
"Little Sisters are young girls who have had ADAM-producing slugs implanted into their bodies, enabling them to drink the blood of dead Splicers and extract viable ADAM from it. This makes them incredibly valuable in Rapture, where Splicers crave ADAM enough to kill for it. Because of this, they are accompanied at all time by Big Daddies, hulking protectors in diving suits who will defend Little Sisters to death. Little Sisters are driven mad by their constant exposure to substance ADAM but are beyond redemption. In the right hands, they can find salvation and be turned back into the innocent little girls they once were."
This figurine measures 3.5" -- despite its size, it is highly detailed. Ball joints are used for the neck, shoulders and arms, and a V-shape for the hip-leg connections. It comes with a suitably-sized ADAM syringe. It was given with pre-ordered copies of BioShock 2 and is now only available in packs with the Big Sister action figure or Young Eleanor action figure.
"Nicknamed "Rosie" after the iconic "Rosie the Riveter" posters of the era, this model of Big Daddy was exploited as free labor to help construct the underwater city of Rapture. After the city plunged into civil war, it was pressed into services as a bodyguard –- using its powerful rivet gun and proximity grenades to defend the Little Sisters to the death."
The Deluxe Big Daddy Rosie is packed with detail. Loaded with articulation and tanks that plug into the back. This enormous figurine also comes with the Rivet Gun accessory which it can hold in its right hand.
"Treated as a science experiment from an early age, Eleanor was a bright, precocious child who resisted the moral indoctrination forced on her by her mother, Sofia Lamb. Through a cruel twist of fate, the spirited child was transformed into the first Little Sister successfully bonded to a Big Daddy—Subject Delta himself. But Lamb has other plans for Eleanor, and will stop at nothing to reclaim her..."
Same model as the Little Sister action figure but with a white dress, new legs with shoes and Eleanor's head. It includes a suitably-sized Delta doll and syringe. It comes only in a pack with the Little Sister action figure.
"Once she was the talk of the town -– a high-profile socialite whose wit was her weapon among Rapture’s elite. As the city fell from grace, so did she -– becoming addicted to ADAM, splicing herself stronger and faster to feel safe in the streets. She resents having to eat refuse and scrabble for ADAM, but ultimately, she’s a survivor. As a "Leadhead", she pelts her enemies with bursts of tommy-gun fire between vicious verbal barbs."
"As packs of advanced, specialized splicers began to bring down the original Bouncer line with ease, Ryan Industries responded in force… with the Elite Bouncer. His reinforced diving suit repels attacks that the original underwater gear simply wasn’t designed to withstand -– and his bladed drill bit was purpose-built for war. Thanks to Ryan Industries, the Little Sisters are safer than ever, in the arms of an Elite."
Relatively same aspects as the regular Bouncer figurine, with minor differences such as the red collar, a bladed drill instead of the regular drill and the colors. It was first sold as a Toys "R" Us Exclusive in the United States but can now be found on the Internet.
On June 21, 2011, NECA announced on their Twitter account that the Splicer series (Series 3) would be the final figurines in the BioShock 2 line, since interest in the line had declined. Although their interests were focused on the BioShock Infinite license, they did consider picking up more from the BioShock license sometime in the future. As for the current Splicer series, it was delayed from release for more than a year. Finally, NECA decided in early 2012 to release the Splicer series figurines separately as store exclusives, rather than as a full series line, beginning with the Brute Splicer on June 28th. In early 2013, NECA decided that not only the Crawler and Ladysmith variant would finally be released as a two pack in summer 2013, but through their newly created NECA Direct, which details would be discussed at San Diego Comic Con.
"One final Big Daddy in the Alpha Series, created by Dr. Sofia Lamb to punish Subject Delta for abducting her daughter. Formidable as Omega is in a fight -- Lamb knew that Delta fears no physical harm. This assault was psychological, as Subject Omega remembers its former identity -- and it speaks with the voice of a former ally…"
This figurine depicts Sinclair after he was turned into the last Alpha Series Big Daddy, Subject Omega. Relatively same aspects as the Subject Delta Action Figure, with minor differences such as a removable, fully-upgraded launcher instead of the drill and the colors. It comes only in a pack with the variant Little Sister action figure and "Bunny" Splicer Mask replica.
The same figurine as the Little Sister Action Figure, but with a red dress and suitably-sized Delta doll and syringe. It comes only in a pack with the Subject Omega action figure and "Bunny" Splicer Mask replica.
"As a skilled boxer, he left London behind to make his way in Rapture. Quick to anger and bigger than most, he found that he rarely fit in with other men. When the city cracked open, he changed with it. The flooded streets tested man against man and his skills made him a first-rate ruffian -- never afraid to hit below the belt. After years of hoarding ADAM he's now capable of inhuman feats of strength -- hurling insults one minute, tables the next."
This figurine, released June 28, 2012 as a Toys "R" Us exclusive, depicts a Brute Splicer. It includes a suitably-sized hat.
"As a long-term patient of Dr. Sofia Lamb, he can barely remember the days before the intense therapy. Though he cannot recall the problems that lead him into the famed therapists care, his every moment is filled with anticipation of his next session. As Rapture collapsed, so did he, and day blurred into night. For years he sleepwalked its streets, splicing himself faster and more predatory. Through massive doses of ADAM, he has transformed himself into a creature perfectly suited to his habitat. Able to climb sheer walls, and squeeze through the ducts of Rapture, he hopes the good doctor will recognize all the progress he has made."
This figurine depicts a Spider Splicer from BioShock 2, known as 'Crawler'. It includes a suitably-sized crow mask and two hooks.
The same figurine as the Lady Smith Action Figure with a different color scheme (red hairs, a dark pea dress), a double-barreled shotgun, a wrench, a hawk mask and a pedestal to make the figurine stand.
"This brand new Big Daddy Bouncer action figure features light-up portholes on his head. A 3-Way switch concealed on his back allows you to chose Green, Yellow or Red LED lights to represent the Bouncer's state of mind."
Same model as the Bouncer from the first series, but with switchable LEDs behind its portholes with can turn to green, yellow or red.
"Eleanor wants to see the sun. After years of abuse and captivity in the underwater city of Rapture, the troubled genius craves escape -- and she has turned to Subject Delta for help. Her connection to him is primal, like that of a devoted daughter despite the tragic origins of their bond. In her eyes, he can do no wrong -- but she’s no shrinking violet. Like Delta, she becomes a single-minded force of nature when angered."
Same model as the Big Sister action figure, but with the helmet replaced by Eleanor's head, no shoulder plates, a red bottle on her syringe and without the air tank and the cage. It comes only in an exclusive pack with the saved Little Sister action figure.
Same aspect as the regular Little Sister action figure, but with a 'saved' appearance, a cleaner dress and a suitably-sized Delta Doll. It comes only in an exclusive pack the Eleanor Lamb action figure.
It was announced by NECA on February 13, 2011 that action figures from BioShock Infinite's universe will be made available before the release of the game. Originally planned for September 2012 for the game's October release, the line was pushed back to January 2013 when the game was also delayed for March 2013.

Apparel & AccessoriesEdit
The following are various official apparel and accessories for the BioShock series.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- The Bouncer action figure was the first BioShock product from NECA to be released. It is also the only one to have a different design for his box (the box' background comes from the cover of BioShock and for the other products it comes from the cover of BioShock 2) and a "Sneaker Preview" sticker. This same figurine is actually based on an old version of the Bouncer which was corrected in BioShock, even if the scaled replica from the Limited Collector's Edition is based on that version. The difference is in fact the appearance of his right air tank which has some sort of chimney on his top on the right version. Also, the action figures looks more damaged than the actual Bouncers from the games.
- The limited edition of Eleanor Lamb's action figure is not a true replica of the original since it has more features from a regular Big Sister's diving suit than the suit in the game.
