Last year, horror fans saw the return of the Halloween franchise. The film was a combination sequel and reboot that ignores every film after the original 1978 classic. The movie brings back Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, who spent the last 40 years as a survivalist, preparing for the return of Michael Myers. The big change to the mythology is that she is no longer the sister of Michael Myers in this new timeline. While there was no “AHA” moment or big twist that made this change necessary, it was still a treat to see the character return after so many years.
With the new movie came a new chance at licensing figures, and NECA Toys delivered earlier this year with a stellar Michael Myers release. They’ve followed that release with the first ever action figure based on Laurie Strode. the newly released figure is based on her appearance in Halloween 2018, and includes multiple weapons, two interchangeable portraits and more. NECA was kind enough to provide a figure for us to check out. After the jump, you can see my thoughts on the figure, as well as my full photo gallery.
