NECA Brings The ‘Ultimate’ In Horror
As always, the team at NECA is looking to bring horror fans the things they want the most with brand new ‘Ultimate’ editions of some of your favorite horror icons! This week they’ve revealed the first official images of two new Ultimate figures with the new Ultimate Gremlin (from ‘Gremlins’) and Ultimate Jason Voorhees (from ‘Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning’)!
The Ultimate Gremlin looks to be a 6″ dream come true for fans of the cult classic film about these monstrous little terrors! NECA has completely redone the original 1984 style Gremlin figure and loaded the Ultimate Gremlin with plenty of articulation so you can pose it however you’d like! Plus they’ve thrown in a variety of awesome accessories straight out of the film including a beer mug, poker cards, popcorn bags (for wearing, obviously), and even a tiny cigarette! The Ultimate Gremlin is set to release this October just in time for Halloween and the holiday season!
The latest version of Ultimate Jason Voorhees is based on his appearance in ‘Friday the 13th Part V’ and is also loaded with articulation and new accessories! Jason includes 4 different heads you can swap out, plus a machete, an ax, an ice pick, and even his own tombstone! Jason is expected to stand around 7″ tall and sports 35 points of articulation. You can look forward to picking up this new Ultimate Jason Voorhees in September!
