To Friday the 13th fans eagerly anticipating Jason Voorhees' first appearance in pixel form, the official F13 video game released for the Nintendo 8-bit NES console in 1989 was a little... well, “baffling” would be a good word for it. But despite the game's major cheese factor, many horror and retro-gaming fans still have a warm spot in their hearts for this one, and NECA has a new item with you folks in mind, coming to this year's Comic-Con.
First revealed by Figures.com, this blue-masked, purple-bodied 7” Jason figure is a direct homage to the game. It glows in the dark in two different colors (the mask, hands and boots glow blue; the machete glows white), and its window-box presentation is another nod to the vintage game packaging.
The figure will only be available for sale during San Diego Comic-Con, July 17-21 at NECA's booth (#3145), and carries a price tag of $25.
