Freddy and Jason are getting a new, old-school look!
In news guaranteed to blow your mind, your favorite baddies from Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th are getting the retro treatment! Just like all the coolest toys in the 1970s, Freddy and Jason are being remade as 8″ poseable dolls with fabric clothing.
We could go on and on about how these upcoming figures are a tribute to our favorite childhood MEGOs, but a picture speaks a thousand words. Feast your eyes on these close-ups:
Get your retro fix with these brand new versions of two horror icons — Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger! These poseable 8″ figures are dressed in tailored fabric clothing similar to the retro toy lines that helped define the licensed action figure market in the 1970s.
Jason is based on his iconic first appearance with the infamous hockey mask in Friday the 13th Part 3. He comes with machete and harpoon gun accessories. Freddy is based on his appearance in the original Nightmare on Elm Street movie, and comes with a removable hat and his trusty razor glove. Both are entirely faithful to the movies.
Blister card packaging with removable protective clamshell.
