NECA head reveals upcoming figure
Update: After being taken down at the studio’s request – the photo is back up! If you missed it, here it is!
An interview with Randy Falk of the collectibles company NECA has yielded this: A full look at the new Freddy Krueger from New Line’s A Nightmare on Elm Street. Perhaps this will inspire the powers-that-be at the studio to reveal a proper photo of the glove-wielding Jackie Earle Haley. This isn’t the real deal, but it gives you an idea of what’s to come.
The reboot hits theaters on April 30, 2010.
Of the toy, Falk says, “Yes, we have re-acquired the rights to Freddy and Jason. Michael Myers is not part of the New Line franchise but we do have the classic Michael Myers rights as well. We are working on figures from the remake of Nightmare on Elm Street and at least two figures will be out for the release of the film with possibly more to follow. We have also begun work on a definitive classic original ANOES Freddy to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Elm Street franchise. There will be more news on both Jason and Freddy come Toy Fair.”
