It may be difficult to believe, but it's been nearly 30 years since Freddy Krueger stalked and slashed a group of ill-fated teenagers in Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street. To commemorate the creepy character's three-decade mark, NECA is releasing a new Freddy figure later this month that captures the sharp-clawed dream invader as he appeared in the 1984 horror classic.

The "Ultimate Freddy" figure will be available in stores later this month for about $25. Freddy fans living in New York City can get a chance to win an "Ultimate Freddy" figure by attending the 35mm screening of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge at the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers on October 28th.

From NECA: "This definitive version of Freddy as he first appeared in the 1984 classic features an all new articulated lower body with ball-hinged thighs and knees. The 7″ figure includes 3 interchangeable heads, interchangeable left hand, and comes with loads of accessories in a deluxe 30th Anniversary window box.
