Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth has supplied us with the figure. Check out the images and my thoughts on the figure after the jump.

Some new photos and info has been revealed by NECA for their next Freddy Krueger Retro Figure. The 8″ scale Mego style figure is based on Freddy‘s appearance in A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. It will feature two interchangeable heads. One of the heads will showcase a screaming Freddy, while the other will be a more snarled head sculpt.
The figure will also feature a swappable right hand, allowing you to display Freddy with his iconic glove hand (not pictured), or the bladed fingers seen in the movie. The fedora is also removable. This new Freddy figure is based on NECA‘s new Type-2 retro style body. It features added articulation and less bulky outfits. Look for the figure to ship in March 2015.

After debuting the figure a few days ago, NECA has shared an official look at a new Retro Mego Style Freddy Krueger. The figure is based on Freddy‘s design from A Nightmare On elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. The design is notable for a couple of reasons. First, the glove hand is replaced with blades that extend directly from the fingers, as seen at the end of the film. Second, Elm Street 2 replaces Freddy‘s solid sleeve sweater with the striped sleeves that would become the norm for the sequels that followed.
The Nightmare On Elm Street 2 Mego Style Freddy Krueger is due out some time next year. We’ll update when new info becomes available. Check out the new photo by reading on.
