Up Close: Chainsaw Clark Griswald by NECA

We were elated last year when NECA announced the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation license, one of our favourite holiday films and last year’s Santa Clark made it into our Christmas decorations.

Action Jackson‘s sales fell well below expectations in Canada and…
