A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3: Dream Warriors is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this weekend. One of the coolest scenes from the seminal film was when Will’s puppet came to life and morphed into Freddy Krueger before going on a killing spree. It’s a complete upending of Pinocchio, where “no strings” equals extreme terror!
NECA unveiled plans for a screen-accurate replica of the Freddy puppet at last month’s Toy Fair in New York City. While we don’t have specs or pricing yet, we’ve been told to expect the product sometime in Q2 of 2017, so it shouldn’t be much longer now. Check out pics of the prototype below.

Official Synopsis: During a hallucinatory incident, young Kristen Parker (Patricia Arquette) has her wrists slashed by dream-stalking monster Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund). Her mother, mistaking the wounds for a suicide attempt, sends Kristen to a psychiatric ward, where she joins a group of similarly troubled teens. One of the doctors there is Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp), who had battled Freddy some years before. Nancy senses a potential in Kristen to rid the world of Freddy once and for all.
