Mezco Toyz takes yet another swing at everybody's favorite teenager-killing boiler-room worker with their new stylized version of A Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger. As if the razor-fingered burn victim wasn't creepy enough, Mezco took it several steps further by introducing a new, and truly inspired, stylized sculpt to the figure, making it look like they took Wes Craven's most frightening horror movie franchise and ran it through a distorted Alice in Wonderland filter. And I mean that in a good way.
Here's the brief description given by Mezco:
'Mezco gives Freddy the stylized treatment and creates and instant classic. Standing 9 inches tall he features 8 points of articulation. Freddy comes complete with a scale Elm Street sign, a removable cloth sweater and hat, and the infamous tongue phone.'
First of all, I find myself wondering why on this good, green Earth would anyone want to take his shirt off. And secondly, if you're on the fence as to whether or not you want to add this figure to your collection, I ask you; How many of your other action figures come with a tongue phone? Yeah, that's what I thought.
