Back in February, NECA enrolled in classes early at the prestigious Miskatonic University with the reveal of their retro-style Re-Animator figure featuring Herbert West, Rufus the cat, and the head of Dr. Hill, and now they've unveiled the full packaging for the anticipated collectible.

You can view the packaging artwork for the Herbert West figure in the photos below (courtesy of NECA's Facebook page), and in case you missed it, check out our previous coverage and visit NECA to view more photos of the West figure and his macabre accessories.

From NECA: "Herbert West has a good head on his shoulders… and another one on his desk… From Re-Animator, the movie based on HP Lovecraft’s classic tale of terror, NECA presents the mad scientist Herbert West in action figure form! The 1985 movie has achieved cult status for its dark and hilarious mix of science fiction, horror and comedy, and starred Jeffrey Combs as a medical student who will stop at nothing to perfect his reanimation serum.

As a clothed action figure, Herbert stands 8” tall and is dressed in his lab coat. He comes with a bottle of reanimation reagent, syringe, bloody shovel, Rufus the cat, and a tray containing the severed head of the last guy who tried to steal his invention. Resealable clamshell packaging.

Release Date: August 2018"
