The new, considerably more unnerving Freddy Krueger will be slashing his way into theatres (and nightmares) April 30th. But as usual, the film’s release is preceded by the action figures so here are the two new figures we’ve gotten of Jackie Earle Haley as the ravamped Freddy Krueger, taking over the role where Robert Englund left off and lending a far darker feel.
You can see Freddy here in both states: the vicious child murderer he was in life and the malevolent undead monster he would become following his death by fire. It’s clear that they went for a more realistic look here, reminiscent of actual burn victims, but whether this take on the character will be successful remains to be seen.
Each figure stands about 6 inches tall (though most figured nowadays tend to run a little larger than that) and the fact that they’re from NECA translates to expert sculpting and painting. Anyone looking forward to the film should check these ones out, but fans of the franchise as a whole will also be sure to find a ton of movie merch over in our Nightmare on Elm Street section.
