NECA Toys Announces New Nightmare Freddy and Halloween’s Laurie Strode

Our friends at NECA Toys might have a lot of horror toys up their sleeve, but nothing is as direct as displaying the classics.

Or should we say, new versions of the classics?

Today, NECA has debuted their newest Freddy Krueger creation, specifically, Freddy from Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. While the film may have mixed reviews among fans (I love that movie), you can’t deny that the redesigned Freddy is scary! The lumbering boots, the peeled skin from his face, and the piercing eyes, this Freddy is truly a monster. NECA killed it with the authenticity of this toy’s design, and makes me want to just casually wear Freddy’s outfit.

Not to be outdone by themselves, NECA is thrilled to announce a two-way action figure debut from the 2018 Halloween movie! The Ultimate Laurie Strode action figure is not only the first ever figure of the character, but the first to feature the authorized likeness of Jamie Lee Curtis.

Based on her appearance in the thrilling new Halloween movie, Laurie stands over 7” tall and has received the Ultimate treatment, with over 25 points of articulation, and tons of attitude and accessories. The figure comes with 2 heads, shotgun, rifle, revolver, knife that fits into a sheath on her hip, and more.

Display-friendly deluxe window box packaging with opening flap.


We know we’re excited for these two awesome horror icons!
