Action Figure Review: 30th Anniversary Ultmate Freddy from A Nightmare on Elm Street by NECA
Height: 7 1/4 inches.
Articulation: Ball jointed ankles, swivel/hinge knees, swivel thighs, swivel/hinge hips, ball jointed waist, ball jointed mid-torso, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge elbows, ball jointed wrists, and a ball jointed head.
Accessories: Smiling head, angry head, "skull faced" head, blood spurting hand, fedora, "face" mask, and tongue telephone.
*The articulation on Freddy is killer. He's extremely well designed, durable, and you can get him into plenty of great poses. He's sculpted with a bit of a lean to his posture which really adds a lot of character to the figure. The sweater is made from a soft rubber and allows his waist and torso joints to function with no interruption of the sculpt.
*I don't usually mention packaging but the fact that this packaging is so cool definitely warrants a mention. It's a five panel box that features the original A Nightmare on Elm Street poster on the front. Open it up and you get a great view of the figure and all of its accessories. I'm loving these boxes so much more than NECA's clamshells.
*The left hand swaps out for this hand with the green blood squirting out of Freddy's finger. This is from the scene near the beginning of the film when he's chasing Tina and tells her to "watch this," proceeding to cut off his own fingers. (The skull face is from this same scene.)
*The only negative I have is that one of the interior pieces of Freddy's waist and hips is molded in a pale pinkish color and left unpainted. Thus, in certain positions, you can sort of see it poking out of Freddy's pants. It's not very noticeable although it is kind of disturbing. And perhaps not too out of character for old Fred.
I've only reviewed two A Nightmare on Elm Street toys on my site:
A Nightmare on Elm Street by NECA
Freddy Furnace Diorama
ReAction Horror Series by FunKo
Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street
