Cryptozoic Entertainment has teamed up with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to bring the man of your nightmares, Freddy Krueger, to life in a new vinyl figure that kicks off their Vinyl Terrorz line featuring new depictions of iconic horror characters.

Available as a Core Edition, a Shadow Edition that's a Cryptozoic Exclusive, and a Skull Variant that's a Hot Topic exclusive, the new Freddy Krueger figure has officially been released online and in retail locations. You can read the official press release with more details below, and we also have a set of photos featuring all three figures.

Press Release: Lake Forest, CA – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and physical and digital collectibles, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products today announced the release of the Vinyl TerrorzTM: Freddy Krueger vinyl figure. The 7-inch first figure in Cryptozoic’s new horror-themed Vinyl Terrorz line depicts the villain from the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series with his iconic glove, fedora and burned face.

“In creating our new Vinyl Terrorz collectibles line, we knew that an enduring horror icon like Freddy Krueger was the perfect choice for the first figure,” said Amanda Barker, Associate Product Manager at Cryptozoic. “Our goal was to capture the different aspects that have made him the stuff of nightmares for over 30 years. We started with his terrifying facial features and glove and then worked in all the other little details that make him distinctly Freddy.”

Designed by Austin Haynes and sculpted by John Muniz, the 7-inch figure comes inside a display-worthy window box.

Moreover, there are two exclusive variants of the figure. Vinyl Terrorz: Freddy Krueger Shadow Edition is a Cryptozoic Exclusive that features a heavy dose of black, underlining Freddy’s association with the darkness of night in the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series. In addition, the metallic blood-red eyes, hat, teeth, glove, and portions of his shirt highlight the unrelenting villain’s desire to kill those that he targets while they sleep. Only 350 figures have been produced, making it extremely limited. It is currently available for preorder on the company’s eStore for $40.

Freddy Krueger Skull Variant Vinyl Terrorz: Freddy Krueger Skull Variant is a Hot Topic Exclusive featuring a horrifying skull face inspired by the scene in the first A Nightmare on Elm Street movie in which Freddy’s face is pulled off by one of his victims. It will be available only at Hot Topic stores for $29.99.

The core version Vinyl Terrorz: Freddy Krueger figure will be available at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
