The residents of Elm Street have reason to fear, because the dream killer himself Freddy Krueger is celebrating his 30th anniversary in style. Or should I say toy company NECA are.

The residents of Elm Street have reason to fear, because the dream killer himself Freddy Krueger is celebrating his 30th anniversary in style. Or should I say toy company NECA are.

They have recently been on a roll with amazing sculpts of cult movie characters (Predator and Alien all part of this companies output). They also in the past have made other Nightmare on Elm Street figures and this new figure joins this illustrious list.

According to Action Figure Fury, this new figure is dubbed the “Ultimate Freddy”, which is quite a bold claim from the same company that brought us the NES Robocop and NES Freddy figures. But when you look at it you can see why.

The figure was revealed at a special screening of the first Elm Street movie at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in New York (check NECA’s Twitter feed for more information on that screening) and it seems like it was quite a hit, especially with this cinema attendees.

Ultimate Freddy is currently in its prototype stage but the features look impressive already. The sculpt of the figure is up to the same high standards one would expect from NECA work, but they have managed to get the dirty and nasty look of Freddy’s original appearance down. His alternative heads include even scarier looking Freddy and face ripped off Freddy. Speaking of faces getting ripped off, Ultimate Freddy’s accessories includes Tina’s sliced off face and the infamous tongue licking phone.

The figures planned release date is September with a proposed $25 price tag. So move aside your NECA NES toys and Nightmare on Elm Street figures because Ultimate Freddy is a figure that needs to stand proud on display. With this and the upcoming NES Predator figure arriving soon it seems NECA is one of the go to places for great film and computer game sculpts.
