Sideshow Collectibles has made a new statue that looks like the thing of nightmares. The company has just revealed their 1/6th scale Freddy Krueger figurine just in time for Halloween, and the pricey piece will surely get horror buffs hyped.
The sickly sweet 12" figure shows Freddy Krueger in all his terrifying glory. The statue features the villain’s potted, rotted skin. Dressed in his iconic red-and-black sweater, Freddy looks just like his on-screen counterpart, so collectors might want to keep this figure far away from their bedrooms - just a suggestion. The figure does come with Freddy’s deadly pointed gloves, so you might not want to test the collectible should he enter your dreams.
If you want to check out the figure’s product description, then you can read it here:
“Having haunted our dreams (nightmares) for well over three decades, it only made sense that the next classic horror villain to be realized as a Sideshow Sixth Scale Figure would be Freddy Krueger.
The Freddy Krueger Sixth Scale Figure is an amazingly accurate and detailed recreation of the monster’s look from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. Beneath his trademark fedora is Krueger's burned scowling visage and a fully-detailed cloth costume, including his iconic weathered striped sweater.
To offer collectors the opportunity to pose Freddy in unique ways, Sideshow is including two different takes on the character’s bladed glove hand – one open, one gesturing. The piece also includes three ungloved hands – open, fist, and pointing.
The Sideshow Exclusive variation will also include an alternate pointing gloved hand.
If you think that you can avoid sleep while having him in your collection, then be sure to pick up the Freddy Krueger Sixth Scale Figure before he crawls back into hell.”
Sideshow chose to base their Freddy Krueger statue off of the third Nightmare on Elm Street film. The movie debut in 1987 and follows a crew of teenagers who have their dreams haunted my a muderous, maniacal serial killer. Freddy Kruger would enter the dreams of unsuspecting victims and kill them in their sleep via nightmares.
The exclusive figure is one of the cheaper options over at Sideshow. The statue will run you about $200, and it is set to ship between December 2017 - February 2018.
