Mezco Announces Freddy Krueger Living Dead Doll

Freddy Krueger is one villain that hasn’t exactly been synonymous with the word cute, but he is now. Mezco has announced that Mr. Krueger will be joining fellow horror icons, Jason Voorhees, Ash, Regan and more as an adorable Living Dead Doll. Unlike his other licensed counterparts, Freddy is the first licensed TALKING Living Dead Doll.

The Freddy Living Dead Doll comes equipped with 7 iconic phrases:

  • “Come to Freddy”
  • “You’re all my children now”
  • “You shouldn’t have buried me, I’m not dead”
  • “Kids, always a disappointment”
  • “You think you was going to get away from me?”
  • “Ha ha ha ha ha”
  • “Every town has an Elm Street”

To activate these phrases, you simply push a button hidden on his back, so you will most likely have to remove him from the box (Living Dead Dolls are easy to repackage) to use the speaking function.

Freddy will stand 10 inches tall with 5 points of articulation. He will be packaged in a die-cut window box for easy display. Current pre-order price is $50; Amok Time Toys is offering free shipping on their pre-orders. Freddy returns, this time much cuter, in July.

“One, two, Freddy’s coming for you
Three, four, better lock your door
Five, six, grab your crucifix
Seven, eight, gonna stay up late
Nine, ten, never sleep again”

New ‘IT’ Pennywise Pop! Variant

The re-imagining of Stephen King’s classic novel IT took the box office by storm and terrorized a new generation of fans over the summer of 2017; since its releases, popular collectibles company Funko has bombarded the market with various forms of Pennywise.  Everyone’s favorite dancing clown is receiving yet another variant.

This new Pop! is a take on the original release of the blue-eyed Pennywise holding Georgie’s iconic boat, but this time his eyes are yellow. Like the other variants, it will stand approximately 3 3/4 inches tall. It is set for a January 24th release and will be extremely limited. The Chase variant of this particular Pop! has been vaulted, so if you order from any sites that give you a chance of receiving the Chase version, it is unlikely that you will.

Some sites are offering a pre-order, like Pop in a Box, but sites like Amazon have yet to list the product. With the run being so limited, pre-order may be the only way to get it without paying inflated eBay prices.

“They float, Georgie, and when you’re down here with me, you’ll float, too”
