Another version of Creepshow‘s Creep is on the way from NECA; this time, it’s the classic ghoul from the iconic George A. Romero-directed film from 1982. The figure will stand 7″ tall and has 25 points of articulation.
The Creep (or Raoul) isn’t accessory heavy, but what do you expect from a character only on-screen for a few moments. What we do get makes the Creep pretty versatile when displaying options. If you’re a fan of the original poster art, the Creep comes with an alternate, single-eyed skull to replicate that look. Now, where’s our Tom Atkins “Dad” action figure?
The included comic looks like it may be only a single folded piece of card stock. So don’t get your hopes up that this is a miniature replica of the screen-used prop.
The Creep should be in stores in September, and the price range will be close to, if not more than, $40. I’m interested to see how the rest of his body is sculpted since we get very little insight into that detail. If you’re familiar with the original prop’s restoration, you’ll know that this puppet was only created from the pelvis up.
It’s the most fun you’ll ever have being scared! The Creepshow horror franchise marks 40 years of terrifying tales in 2022. The original movies built a long-running legacy of terror, piloted by the iconic mascot The Creep, which NECA celebrates with this Ultimate action figure from the 1982 movie.
Raoul will come with the following accessories:
- Three interchangeable heads
- Hair with the wind blowing effect
- Creepshow comic book
- Fabric robe with wire armature
Now that the original is out of the way, does this mean that Creepshow 2’s EC Comics-inspired version of the Creep is on the way? NECA could make two characters out of this one: the delivery man and the cloaked ghoul.
