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”
