NECA has released information about their second San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive! If you’re a fan of horror movies then this one might be right up your dark and creepy alley. Here’s what Figures.com has about this lovely little item.
Inspired by the Classic 1989 Video Game…
Released in 1989 for the super popular 8-Bit home console, the video game Friday the 13th is so bad… it’s good. A cult classic if there ever was one, this retro title had you running around Camp Crystal Lake trying to survive, find and kill Jason Voorhees. While fighting off man-eating wolves, bats and zombies had NOTHING to do with the Friday the 13th movies, the big payoff was encountering the murderous masked man himself. It is this video game version of Jason – in all his purple and blue 8-bit animated glory – that NECA is paying a homage to with their second 2013 San Diego Comic-Con exclusive release.
NECA’s Friday the 13th Jason (1989 Video Game Appearance) Comic-Con Exclusive will be a fully articulated 7-inch figure done up in that truly horrifying video game deco. Better yet is Jason’s glow-in-the-dark features. Jason’s mask, hands, and feet will glow a soft blue, while his included machete blade and axe head will glow white. This comic-Con exclusive will come in a special window box packaging with opening flap to re-create the look and feel of the classic 1989 Friday the 13th video game packaging.
Fans can pick up Friday the 13th Jason (1989 Video Game Appearance) during San Diego comic-Con July 17-21 at NECA’s booth #3145. This exciting exclusive will be priced at $25.
Here’s the packaging!
