NECA is going to be reissuing two NES Video Game Appearance Figures as GameStop Exclusives. It looks like they are doing a straight reissue of the Friday The 13th – NES Jason Voorhees 2.0 Figure. The A Nightmare On Elm Street – NES Freddy Krueger Figure, however, sees a significant upgrade. They have swapped out the original body for an ultimate body type, and it looks like the paint has gotten a bit of an upgrade. They are priced at $24.99 each and are due to be released on March 1st, 2019. Pre-order at the links below.
To celebrate the 13th figure in our classic video game tribute series, we’re bringing back the one that started it all! Previously available only as a convention exclusive, Jason is back and better than ever, with different deco, a new accessory and special packaging that plays theme music from the original video game. Based on his appearance in the classic Friday the 13th video game, released in 1989 for the popular 8-bit home console, Jason stands 7″ and has over 25 points of articulation for great poses. The figure comes with machete, axe, harpoon gun and removable mask, plus new “floating” mother’s head accessory. New paint deco reproduces the game’s pixilated look. And not only does the window box packaging re-create the look and feel of the classic video game cartridge box, lift the front flap and it plays music from the game, too!
Back by popular demand and upgraded! The Classic Video Game Freddy Krueger is inspired by the “so bad it’s good” Nightmare on Elm Street video game that was released in 1989 for the super popular 8-bit home console. This garishly colored Freddy is a cult classic if ever there was one and now features the new Ultimate body, with over 30 points of articulation. The 7″ scale figure comes in display-worthy window box packaging with opening flap that re-creates the look and feel of the classic 1989 video game box.
