This holiday season, NECA has unveiled a ‘Thanksgiving’ themed collection, inspired by Eli Roth’s latest horror flick. This collection includes action figures, plush toys, a mask, and a t-shirt bundle, showcasing the film’s notorious masked villain. NECA’s reputation for crafting superior horror figures is further cemented by this release. ‘Thanksgiving,’ the final significant horror release of 2023 in theaters, has garnered acclaim, concluding the year on a high note.
As the holiday season approaches, horror aficionados can revel in the festive slasher vibe. Typically, Christmas dominates this niche, but Eli Roth’s new Thanksgiving-themed slasher film changes the game. Coinciding with the movie’s theatrical debut, NECA introduces its Thanksgiving collection, celebrating the film’s newfound iconic status.
Center stage in this collection is the movie’s antagonist, John Craver. Set in Plymouth, Massachusetts, this pilgrim-dressed menace now boasts three NECA figures, each bloodier than the last. Craver’s seven-inch ultimate action figure is loaded with a bounty of accessories, including weapons like a musket and sledgehammer, and comes with removable hats, interchangeable masks, and multiple hands. The eight-inch cloth edition features a fabric jumpsuit and an array of weapons.
NECA’s ‘Toony Terrors’ series adds a playful twist with a six-inch caricature of Craver, complete with an axe and a comically severed turkey mascot head. The collection also includes cuddly plush versions of Craver and the turkey mascot, and a mask and t-shirt bundle that replicate the killer’s movie attire and offer a gory twist on Thanksgiving.
NECA’s Horror Dominance
NECA has distinguished itself in the action figure world, particularly with its horror-themed figures. Standing out amidst companies like Hasbro and McFarlane, which focus on superheroes and Star Wars, NECA has carved a niche with their horror line. Their figures are so revered that having a NECA figure is like a badge of honor for a film or franchise. With John Craver, NECA now positions this new horror icon alongside legends like Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger.
