Hooper Can Now Drive The Boat Alongside NECA’s JAWS Quint Figure!

Hooper, straight off the boat in Amity Island, is now represented faithfully by NECA. So now you, too, can tell him to take a long walk off a short dock. The smug but knowledgeable academic is a welcome addition to the JAWS line, which kicked off earlier this year with Quint.
Hooper will be released in March 2022, ahead of the July 4th weekend. Hooper can be pre-ordered via Entertainment Earth for $37.99. Quint is also back up for pre-order and should ship this month. Additionally, I’ve spotted Quint often at Target. So, you can also try your luck there, too.
Pair him up with NECA’s Quint and create that tense “working class hero” scene. If we don’t get Chief Brody, maybe we can get ‘Wetsuit Hooper’ with the steel cage instead? Maybe he can have a baking soda feature that will allow the cage to rise and sink? Man, that’d be cool.

NECA is excited to announce a new 8″ clothed figure featuring the licensed likeness of Richard Dreyfuss as Matt Hooper from the 1975 classic. Standing at 8″ tall, the young oceanographer is equipped with screen-accurate accessories (two hats, duffel bag, cup, and crushed cup) as well as swappable heads and hands, and tailored clothing.

I own NECA’s Quint myself. There’s no doubt that he is great-looking action figure. He’ll never leave the package, though. As much as I’d like to put him next to my Bob Ross figure, I have a feeling one of them would be broken by the next morning.
The tension between Dreyfus and Robert Shaw was real. That just wasn’t amazing on-screen chemistry. The two really did have a feud on set. Check out the video below for more information on that subject.
