One, Two, Mego-Style Freddy’s Gonna Murder the Crap out of You…



This is NECA’s second version of Freddy Krueger on a ’70s-style body with cloth outfit, and by golly, they may actually make me a convert to this format before they’re done. Based on his appearance in Freddy’s Revenge, a somewhat campy installment that most fans today see as a barely coded allegory for coming out of the closet, this figure is scarier than the actual movie. Unless you’re Orson Scott Card, maybe.

If you have any old-school Megos, they better watch out. Muscular dudes in spandex are particularly likely targets for this particular iteration of ol’ Stripy Sweater.
