Thank you to NECA Toys for providing their Creepshow Ultimate 40th Anniversary The Creep Figure for review.
Availability: February 2023
The Creep is packaged in a window box with an opening flap, with beautifully doe artwork on the front, logo on the sides, and images of the figure in comic book panel form on the back. He comes packaged in a plastic tray along with his accessories.
The Creep gets the Ultimate treatment from NECA as this is a milestone offering in celebration of 40 years of the franchise. The Creep is completely skeletal, and most of it is hidden behind his fabric robe. The skeletal structure is completely sculpted and you can feel the textures from the bones, which is awesome, realistic and disgusting all at the same time. The right hand includes rings on the fingers, The fabric robe is also realistic, with a wash over it to look worn and dirty, and also includes a wire armature for custom posing.
The head sculpts are all unique, each with a hinged jaw, along with realistic sculpting. The eyes and mouths all look amazing, including the white hair that is different on each of these.
He is also given the Ultimate articulation treatment, and includes a ball jointed head, hinged jaw, swivel-hinged shoulders, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed torso, ball jointed hips, swivel-hinged knees, and hinged ankles.
Included are an assortment of accessories, including a pumpkin, a candle and a Creepshow comic book with drawings on the inside.
Overall, The Creep has surpassed my expectations and is truly one of this years most memorable offerings in their horror line. He’s an essential part of their horror collection and will fit in perfectly with their 7″ figure offerings. Make sure to grab this one today!
