NECA, a company that creates a number of collectible toys and apparel, recently created a figure based on Rare’s NES Nightmare On Elm Street video game. The figure is available right now exclusively in Toys R’ Us stores. No word yet if it will eventually be available for purchase online, but here’s hoping it will be! Here’s the official synopsis of the figure as well as a gallery of images:
Get your retro fix with this brand new version of Freddy based on his classic video game appearance. Released in 1989 for the super popular 8-bit home console, the video game Nightmare on Elm Street is so bad… it’s good.
This poseable 8” figure is dressed in tailored fabric clothing, similar to the toy lines that helped define the licensed action figure market in the 1970s. A cult classic if there ever was one, Freddy features that truly horrifying video game color scheme and comes complete with razor glove hand and removable hat! Blister card packaging featuring unique original art with resealable protective clamshell.”
