In October 1981, the highly anticipated Halloween II was released in theaters. The follow up to the genre defining Halloween continues moments after the events of the first film. After Dr. Loomis shoot Michael Myers numerous times, he and Laurie Strode are horrified to see that Michael has survived and has fled the scene. An injured Laurie is transported to a Haddonfield Memorial Hospital. Michael, in a quest to finish what he started, stalks the halls of the hospital. As he attempts to locate the injured Myers, Dr. Loomis learns a terrible truth. Laurie Strode is actually Michael’s sister, and Michael seems to have learned that fact as well. Loomis and Laurie confront Michael together, hoping to stop his rampage and end the nightmare. The events of the film were eventually retconned in Halloween 2018, removing the relationship between Michael and Laurie, and erasing all the sequels from canon.
Last October, NECA released the excellent Halloween II – Ultimate Michael Myers Figure. At Toy Fair earlier this year, we learned that a few new Halloween II items were on the way, as part of their retro clothed line. The selection will include Michael Myers, and a 2-pack of Dr. Loomis and Laurie Strode. Today, thanks to our friends at NECA, we have an exclusive in-hand photo gallery and review of the upcoming Halloween II – Michael Myers 8″ Scale Clothed Figure. Read on to see the photo shoot and my thoughts on the figure.
