NECA reveals action figures from the new A Nightmare on Elm Street!
April 1, 2010
Freddy’s Back!
Twenty-six years after the original A Nightmare on Elm Street kept a whole generation awake at night, the franchise that gave us one of horror’s most memorable baddies, Freddy Krueger, is getting a reboot courtesy of directorSamuel Bayer and New Line Cinema. Taking on the iconic Freddy role is actor Jackie Earle Haley, perhaps best known as Rorschach from The Watchmen. To honor the release of the film and the rebirth of this cultural icon, NECA is proud to unveil our brand new A Nightmare on Elm Street figures!

 

Where else to start but with Freddy himself? Our run of figures features two different versions of the Freddy Kruger character: One before he is burned and one after. Pre-fire Fred Krueger comes with an interchangeable right hand, and razor-glove Freddy comes with that famous weapon and two interchangeable heads. Each figure stands 6 3/4" tall and is fully poseable.

A Nightmare on Elm Street figures are in stores now and also featured on the NECA Amazon storefront.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
