A Nightmare on Elm Street
"You've got the body…I've got the brains." That was the scene that did it for me. We've all got our favorite Freddy Krueger moment ... Nancy in the bathtub, Johnny Depp getting sucked into the bed, the cockroach transformation scene or even "Welcome to prime time, bitch!". But the one that stuck with me was Krueger peeling back the top of his head, revealing a pulsing brain, while reciting that line to a screaming Jesse in A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge.
There's just so much going on at Comic-Con, it's hard to even know where to begin. Lucky for you we're just doing everything! Behold a quick trip to the NECA Toys booth and the horrors that lay within! It was hard to pick what to have you dig on, but the following Elm Street and Evil Dead stuff seemed to more than fit the bill!
Actress Heather Langenkamp is known to fans worldwide as the tough-as-nails Nancy Thompson who boldly took on maniacal dream demon Freddy Krueger in Wes Craven’s classic A Nightmare on Elm Street for the first time some 27 years ago.
Undoubtedly, Nancy Thompson has been one of the horror genre’s most beloved heroines ever since she made her big screen debut back in the original A Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge gets a lot of unwarranted shit from fans. Yes, it's riddled with homoerotic overtones, but who gives a damn? Bottom line - it marked the second and only other time in the series (other than the original) that Freddy was at his most evil, instead of wisecracking his way through the proceedings.
It's almost been a full year and the horrendous design of Platinum Dunes' Freddy Krueger has entirely faded from memory. Action figure maestros NECA seem to feel similarly for the amount of Englund-era Freddy they're readying for 2011. Each of their upcoming offerings are must-owns, but this is the one we've been waiting for.
For years now the good folks over at Mondo Tees have been doling out incredible artwork based upon our favorite films. It's with no degree of exaggeration that we say they may just have outdone themselves with these latest two.
Never mind the meatball-looking faux Krueger from the tepid remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Don't see many figures of him now, do you? NECA Toys more than knows where the horror fans' hearts and loyalties lie, and their new A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors collectible is nothing short of an absolute must have!
You know what's cool? When it comes to movie franchises the toy world knows what's badass and what's not. For instance ... NECA Toys is still pumping out A Nightmare on Elm Street figures using Robert Englund's likeness and not the recent Jackie Earle Haley meatball head from the pitiful remake.
There have been many, and we mean many figures based upon the sleep-time boogeyman, Freddy Krueger. But we can guarantee you these are the damned best we've ever seen! Welcome back oh bastard son!
