“Sexy” Freddy Krueger? Bet you never thought you’d see the day

The gorgeous bishoujo series has been a hallmark of creativity for Kotobukiya since it debuted. Now, in a delightfully surprising twist of aesthetic inspiration for their “Freddy vs. Jason” set, Freddy Krueger from the legendary 1984 film offering A Nightmare on Elm Street is getting the bishoujo treatment. But it isn’t in the way you might expect — instead of the gnarled male antagonist seen on the silver screen, Freddy is re-imagined here as a sultry, buxom blonde lady. (I mean, it might have been a bit more entertaining to see a “sexy” dude version of Freddy, but never mind. I guess we’ll have to wait for that one.) She may look nonchalantly blissful, but the razor glove on her right hand shows that she means business.

Talented illustrator Shunya Yamashita and renowned sculptor Takaboku Busujima (Busujimax) are responsible for conceptualizing this horrific beauty, who stands on a “pool-of-blood” base and will look amazing next to the upcoming bishoujo Jason! She stands seven inches tall and is perfect for a chillingly lovely display.

Oh, hey. Didn't see you there.
