The original Michael Myers joins the Ultimate line from NECA Toys, and this figure is based on his appearance in the 1981 cult classic, where Michael Myers follows Laurie to the Haddonfield Memorial Hospital, where Laurie has been dmitted for Myers’ attempt on her life. Interestingly enough, this sequel is now irrelevant as last years Halloween 2018 is now meant to be the direct sequel to the original 1978 movie.

Based on his appearance in 1981’s Halloween 2, Michael stands over 7″ tall and has received the Ultimate treatment, with over 25 points of articulation and tons of accessories. The figure comes with 3 heads, syringe, knife, hammer, and opening jack o’ lantern. Comes in display-friendly deluxe window box packaging with opening flap.
