This Will Certainly Give You Nightmares

freedy

Still the only guy to make that sweater scary.

In honour of Freddy’s 30 years of terrorizing the residence of Elm Street, NECA is unleashing this deluxe figure of our favorite boogeyman. This September will see the release of the A Nightmare on Elm Street – 30th Anniversary Ultimate Freddy”  7″ action figure.

NECA is pulling out all the stops with this one. Freddy comes packed with articulation for chasing down those sleeping kids, including an all new lower body with ball-hinged thighs and knees. To give the figure the real deluxe treatment Freddy also comes with 3 interchangeable heads, a flayed skin mask, and an alternate mutilated left hand. The pièce de résistance, which may be the creepiest accessory ever released, the tounge phone. WOW. NECA has produced a few different versions of Mr. Krueger but this looks to really be THE ultimate Freddy figure.

Make sure you catch up on your sleep now because when September rolls around… well you know what they say?

One, two, Freddy’s coming for you.

Three, four, Better lock your door

Five, six, grab your crucifix.

Seven, eight, Better stay up late.

Nine, ten, Never sleep again….
