Well, if your into horror action figures, the best quailty, (but not nesscisarily availability,) is found at sideshowcollectibles.com, who has made numerous classic monsters and new line horror toys available over the years. While the coolest, (in my opinion) is the sold out Dream Warriors Freddy, The Friday the 13th Part 4 Jason Voorhees figure is still available for Pre-Order! And it looks so cool!

You better believe I'm getting the Nightmare 3 figure. I actually begged them to do that figure. I can't believe they listened!

All we need now is the Freddy Snake and we've got the whole Elm Street series covered as far as toys go.

yeah, it's a cool figure, I'll need to get that one as well! I still think they could do a Nightmare 1 & 4 Freddy..and even Nightmare5/6 figure...I think the first they made looked more like a Nightmare2 Freddy.

I LOVE the Sideshow figures (especially The Dead line), but I wasn't the biggest fan of the Dream Warrior Freddy. The concept was fantastic and in general it looked good, but the face sculpt seemed off.

I did see the 1/4 scale Freddy when I was at Harrison's Comics in Salem, MA... the sculpt on that is dead on! It's an amazing piece, one I'm looking to pick up.

The Jason 1/4 figure looks just as good, but that likeness is much easier to nail.

OK, Sideshow does some great work and chooses the most badass figures to recreate, but why the fuck do they have to make the shoes so damn small and the pants so baggy? Last time I checked, Freddy and Jason didn't wear Jncos and sport slip-on, loafer-looking, shiney shoes.

That, bloodychainsaw, is most likely because Sideshow uses a "universal" male and female body for their figures. Sort of an advanced art mannequin; it's almost a necessary evil. If they were to sculpt entire bodies the price would be more than doubled.

Hrm. I just NOW noticed the pictures on Sideshow's site of the "machete-in-head" version...

I have to say, I've never been much for Sideshow's figures because they just look a bit too ..off, for my tastes. Always been a bit cartoony and the hockey masks look BLARGH...but I love this part 4's head sculpt. They must've put more time into studying that version of Jason than any other. If the hockey mask looked more accurate, it'd be a must-have.

Their Freddy sculpts are hundreds of miles better than any of their Jasons. the "Dream Master Freddy" looks totally rockin'.
