Last year, the horror streaming service Shudder resurrected Creepshow as an anthology TV series. The first season of the series consisted of six episodes, with each episode containing two short stories. Shudder brought in legendary special effects artist Greg Nicotero to design shows mascot, The Creep. Fans will know Nicotero from his work on The Walking Dead, Army of Darkness, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, From Dusk Til Dawn, Phantasm II, and many, many more. The Creep is the undead host of the show, silently introducing each segment and episode. The Creep is completely animatronic. Earlier this year, Nicotero previewed an updated look for The Creep for Season 2 of Creepshow.
NECA Toys is releasing an all-new 7″ scale figure based on The Creep from Season 1 of the Creepshow TV Series. The figure includes a fabric cloak, an interchangeable hand, a lantern, a comic book, and a skull. The figure shipped out to retailers and should hit shelves very soon. Our friends at NECA have sent over the figure for an advanced look. check out my photo gallery and review after the jump.
