Next week, the highly anticipated The Shape of Water – Amphibian Man 7″ Scale Figure from the Guillermo Del Toro Signature Collection begins to ship to retailers from NECA Toys. Inspired by the classic Creature From The Black Lagoon films from Universal, The shape of Water tells the story of Elisa, a mute woman working as a janitor in a secret research facility. There she meets a curious amphibious creature and forms an unbreakable bond with it. Unable to bear seeing the beautiful being tortured, she devises a plan to help the Amphibian Man escape and return to the sea where it belongs. That’s a simplified explanation for one of Guilermo del Toro’s most celebrated films.
