This is the latest in a series (of indefinite length and regularity) of blog posts memorializing cancelled toys. Today we look at two figures, Riff-Raff and Dr. Frank-N-Furter from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
These made it as far as being solicited in Previews, but it's been a long time since we heard any news about them. But hey, we live in an amazing future, so we were able to reach out to NECA directly to ask them what was up:
@OAFE sadly cancelled due to some licensing issues. Shame as the protos were top notch

Well shoot. Apparently (executive proder and rights-holder) Lou Adler didn't want figures that actually looked like the actors.
