'What's your favorite scary movie?', NECA to release Retro Style Ghostface

There are rules for surviving a horror movie (for instance, never say "I'll be right back"), but none of the rules involve horror collectibles like NECA's newly revealed Mego-inspired Ghostface retro-style doll. Horror hounds...

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Nightmare on Elm Street, NECA is releasing an Ultimate Freddy figure. This figure will include accessories that will remind you of some of your favorite moments from the movie. Standing at seven inches tall, Freddy will come with a new fully articulated lower half so you can move his thighs and knees.

There will also be three interchangeable heads so you can see him serious, smiling, or with his burned skull face. Now, as a fan of the original movie, the accessories for this figure is what makes this great. Included will be a left hand that has two fingers cut off, a dead skin mask, his fedora, and a tongue phone.

That tongue scene was always my favorite part! Coming in a special 30th anniversary window box, the Ultimate Freddy figure will be released in September.

We are now entering the final months before Godzilla finally hits movie theaters in May. For the most part, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros has tried to keep everything about this movie secret. So trying to get a look at the new figures from companies like NECA and Bandai have been hard.

They don’t want us to see what Godzilla looks like unless he’s eating a Snickers bar. Of, course that Godzilla isn’t the one that will be in the movie. At NY Toy Fair, NECA had their 2014 Godzilla figure on display, but pictures weren’t allowed.

However, today they gave exclusive photos of their figure to Toho Kingdom, so finally we get to see it. Here we see there are two versions of Godzilla; one painted, and one unpainted. These two versions are also two different sizes that will be available.

So there will be one that measures 12 inches head to tail, and one that measures 24 inches head to tail. Now that you’ve seen NECA’s new figure, what do you think about this new Godzilla?

To the delight  of many fans, NECA is continuing their Nintendo 8-bit figure series. It all started with SDCC NES 8-bit Jason, and continued with NES 8-bit Freddy, then followed up by NES 8-bit RoboCop. Now Predator will join the line.

NECA teased this new addition yesterday on Twitter, so no other information is known aside from this small image. Based on the 1987 NES video game, Predator is painted similar to Jason in bright blue and purple. I’m sure he’ll also come in retro style packaging. I wonder what kind of accessories he’ll come with?
