To focus entirely on the homoerotic undertones of the film, as most do, is totally missing the point that A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge is a pretty damn solid sequel. It’s got a lot of goofy stuff in it, for sure, but I’ve always considered myself a fan.
Now that that’s out of the way…
There was a screening of the first Elm Street sequel at NYC’s Alamo Drafthouse last night, and toy company NECA was on hand to show off some of their goods. Displayed amongst previously released and soon-to-be released Freddy figures was one we hadn’t yet seen before, based on the film being celebrated.
Thus far, NECA has given the retro-style treatment to original Freddy and even Dream Child‘s ‘Super Freddy,’ and up next they’re doing the same for Part 2 Freddy. The 8″ retro figural doll is set for release in 2015, and though high quality images haven’t yet surfaced, we managed to snag a few that fans took last night and uploaded to social media.
Check out your first look at the new toy below!

Don’t forget; NECA’s 3oth anniversary ‘Ultimate’ Freddy Krueger action figure is headed our way next month!
