Retro NES Freddy Krueger 052

NECA has been teasing that a few surprise items would be dropping without any prior warning. They like to do this from time to time so that fans can actually be surprised once in a while when going into a toy store. Well, this weekend, a new entry into their Retro Mego Style series will begin hitting the West Coast. The figure will be available exclusively at Toys “R” Us Stores. Much like when they dropped the surprise 8-Bit Friday The 13th Retro 8″ Jason Voorhees in stores, we’re getting a matching horror icon. Say hello to the Retro 8-Bit Nightmare On Elm Street Freddy Krueger 8″ Scale Figure! Toysrus.com has it IN STOCK NOW.

While visiting the NECA studio last week, I was keen to spy this Freddy on display with many other Retro Figures. Randy Falk of NECA wanted us to share the news with fans, and provided us with a sample to photograph and review! Read on to check out over 55 high resolution photos of the NES Freddy Retro Figure.

Jason Lives Ultimate Figure 015

When NECA revealed their Retro Mego Style Friday The 13th Part 6 – Jason Voorhees, fans were wondering if they would see new 7″ scale version in the Ultimate line. At San Diego Comic-Con 2015, NECA answered those questions by revealing the new figure. Now they have posted up details and new photos of the Friday The 13th Part 6 Ultimate Jason Voorhees 7″ Scale Figure. The figure is scheduled for release this December. Here’s more info direct from NECA:

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Friday the 13th Part 6, we present the definitive collector’s version of Jason as he appeared in the 1986 film Jason Lives!

This deluxe 7” scale action figure features a gruesome, freshly unearthed sculpt and over 25 points of articulation. It’s loaded with accessories, too: removable mask, a machete and a knife that both fit into sheaths on his belt, the fence post that reanimated him and his tombstone. Packaged in a collector-friendly Deluxe 30th Anniversary window box.

NECA TCM Ultimate Leatherface 067

Today we have another really cool first look from our visit to NECA’s studio. They were kind enough to provide us with the Texas Chainsaw Massacre – Leatherface Ultimate 7″ Scale Figure. When it was released in 1974, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was a revolutionary and shockingly brutal horror film. The film helped to define, what would become, the slasher genre of horror films. It faced bans in numerous countries and massive backlash for its portrayal of a man who wears a mask made of his murder victims’ human skin. While the actual on screen violence is fairly tame by today’s standards, the use of grainy film, the horrific scenery and the tense setups all combine to create a truly memorable experience. The growing fan base of exploitation horror films turned it into a massive financial success, gaining over $30 million on a $300,000 budget. By the 80’s, the film was a VHS cult hit and it spawned numerous sequels before getting caught up in the remake craze. The original Leatherface, however, remains one of the most iconic and terrifying figures in horror film history.

We have a massive gallery of the figure. After the jump you can find over 70 high resolution images. Also be sure to check out all of our NECA Toy Galleries, to keep up with our growing collection. See the photos and review after the jump.

Friday The 13th Part 6 Retro Pamela and Jason 028

NECA toys shocked horror fans when they first teased a retro 2-pack of Pamela and Jason Voorhees from the first Friday the 13th film. The pair initially seemed like an odd choice. But as more images and info came out, it became clear that we were in for a pretty special release. The original film, for the most part, is a straight forward slasher film with a fantastic twist ending. Underneath that, though, is a fairly heartbreaking back story. A mother, so grief stricken and angry at the negligent death of her helpless son, lets insanity set in and becomes a ruthless killer. You can see the anguish in her face as she talks about the death of Jason throughout the film. Then you see her fractured psyche as she makes her murderous intentions known.

The crew at NECA were kind enough to send one of these out for review. We’ve got over 50 high resolution photos and a review for the set. You can check them out by reading on.
