Thank you to NECA Toys for providing their Friday The 13th – 1/4″ Scale Part 4 Jason Voorhees Figure for review.
Availability: August 2018
the figure is packaged in a window box with artwork on both of the sides, images and a description of the film on the back, and the front showcases the window and the figure inside along with his accessories that are packaged in around him.
Jason Voorhees stands at 20″ tall and is based on his appearance as seen in the fourth installment of the franchise. Jason is sculpted and designed very similar to his 7″ figure scale counterpart, and everything has been jumbo sized to fit in with this larger offering. The figure features two interchangeable head sculpts, which both are compatible to place the hockey mask over them. This offering only has one hockey mask as opposed to two compared to the 7″ scale figure, and the mask has the damage caused by the axe on top as well as both head sculpts have the cut from the axe as well. The mask has a brown deco around it indicating dried blood, and head has red blood stain from the axe around the cuts, which looks realistic and amazingly detailed. The mask has a dark beige color with a darker wash over it, and the straps each have a texture to it with realistic looking buckles.
Both of the head sculpts are similar in appearance, and the biggest differences are the cut on the left side of the head on the right as well as the missing eye, the position of their mouths, and the way that the right eye is looking. The facial details are just horrifying and incredibly detailed all at the same time. The details on the mouth including the paint applications and shape and style of the teeth look amazing, The folds in the skin, lumps and paint washes really make these an interesting head to look at.
The body itself is incredibly detailed, and Jason is given his dark grey button down shirt with realistic folds and a dark paint wash over it, and dark tan pants with a wash over it, and dirt and mud detailed in the paint applications as well. One thing about the body is that its a bit top heavy, meaning that he could fall over if you aren’t careful and come crashing down, and if he’s holding an accessory, it’s possible that may break once it touches the floor.
Jason has fewer accessories compared to the 7″ scale release, but each of these are memorable and inspired by the film. He comes with his iconic machete that can slide into the side of his head, an interchangeable left hand that was sliced in half, a bloody axe, and a bloody knife, as well as two different head sculpts and the hockey mask. Each of these has great deco applied to it to make it look not only realistic, but movie accurate, as well as great attention to detail. So additional notable mentions is that both of his hands have veins and long dead-like fingernails, which is a great touch.
The figures articulation includes a ball jointed neck, ball hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball hinged hips, swivel-hinged knees, swivel and rocker ankles.
Overall, Jason Voorhees is an excellent figure with superior detail and paint applications that fans will love. Again, just be careful when you stand him up as he tends to fall over as he’s a bit top heavy.
