#SDCC 2013: NECA Announces Godzilla Licence; Teases 8-Bit Freddy FigureThe San Diego Comic-Con is a maddeningly busy event and it’s hard to stay on top of every little thing. We try though, damn it, and as a result we’ve nailed down a couple of interesting tidbits for you.

The MUST-HAVE fastest selling collectible at the show for horror fans was easily NECA’s 8-Bit Jason figure which was based upon LJN’s Nintendo Entertainment System game Friday the 13th. Most of their stock sold on Preview Night and the remainder was gone by Thursday morning. Those of you who got it, consider yourselves lucky. The rest of you are unfortunately subject to the despicable price gougers with no interest in the figure who bought it just to sell it. Hopefully NECA will release it again, if only to spite those bastards.

Speaking of selling, NECA hinted that given the success of the product, they may just release an 8-Bit Freddy figure that would be based upon LJN’s Nintendo Entertainment System game A Nightmare on Elm Street. NECA teased that announcement via Twitter in response to a fan who had inquired about the possibility, stating that they would need to see how Freddy looked “all orange” as he was in the game.

Also in their Twitter feed it was revealed that they have secured the license to create figures based upon Legendary and Warner Bros.’ upcoming version of Godzilla. They’re looking to create both small-scale and large-scale versions. Very exciting!

Stay tuned.

NECA Announces Ashy Slashy Puppet Replica

Published

on

One of our favorite horror TV shows is Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” and one of our favorite moments from the first two seasons is when Ash brings out his “Ashy Slashy” puppet.

If you’re like us and have been wondering when you could get your hands on an Ashy Slashy puppet of your own, today we have good news.

NECA has just announced its prop replica!

You can check out pics of the packaging reveal NECA did over on Facebook below, and then let us know if you’re going to be buying your very own Ash Slashy puppet.

We’ll let you know when the item becomes available for pre-order!

Rundown via NECA:
Every day can be demented play day with your very own Ashy Slashy puppet from Season 2 of Ash vs. Evil Dead! We’ve replicated Ash’s potty-mouthed little doppelganger from the asylum episodes for your (hopefully G-rated) entertainment.

This is a working puppet – insert your hand, and you can move the mouth; plus the arms are poseable thanks to inner articulation. 

Ashy Slashy is approximately 15” tall.

Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Xenomorph Getting Their Own 8-Bit Pop Vinyls

Published

on

Funko has released some delightful horror-themed products over the years, but this just takes the cake. They’ve announced a new line of 8-bit Pop Vinyl figures, which will feature pixelated versions of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Xenomorph. I never thought I’d say it, but even Freddy Krueger looks cute.

Freddy and Jason will both come in standard editions, in addition to GameStop exclusives based on how they both appeared in their own NES video games. The Xenomorph will also have a Previews exclusive edition depicting it smeared with acid blood. Have a look at the images below to decide which versions you like best. Most of us would probably like to purchase all six!

These adorable (but still horrible) figures will be available in January, so make sure you don’t go bankrupt over Christmas.
