NECA Collectables Announces Nintendo Freddy Krueger Figure
Exciting news for merchandise collectors: NECA Collectables announced a new Freddy Krueger figure based on the 1989 Nightmare on Elm Street video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. This figure follows NECA’s popular SDCC exclusive “Classic Video Game Jason,” a Jason Voorhees figure inspired by the Friday the 13th video game for Nintendo. Here’s what NECA says:
Freddy is the companion piece to the Friday the 13th Classic Video Game Jason, one of the hottest SDCC Exclusives this Summer. Released in 1989 for the super popular 8-Bit home console, the video game Nightmare on Elm Street is so bad… it’s good.
A cult classic if there ever was one, NECA’s Freddy Krueger (1989 Video Game Appearance) will be a fully articulated 7-inch figure done up in that truly horrifying video game deco. This figure comes in a special window box packaging with opening flap to re-create the look and feel of the classic 1989 video game packaging.
