An American Werewolf in London Nightmare Demon Figure Rules
An American werewolf in London is one of those iconic horror movies that still desperately needs characters. There has certainly been merch over the years, but not as much as such an iconic and influential film deserves it. NECA, being the great toy company that they are, corrects this situation. Not only do they have an Ultimate Kessler wolf figure coming up, but they’ve also gone to release the Ultimate Nightmare Demon figure, which turns out to be the coolest army builder of the year. Ever since it was announced I’ve been dying to get this one, and NECA sent us one for us to review. So let’s take a look at some An American werewolf in London goodness.
An American werewolf in London is one of the best army builders of the year
The Ultimate standard packaging is used here by NECA, and they’ve taken it a step further with a lenticular facade. The back features some great photos of figs, and when you open the flap, I feel like MOC collectors get the short end of the stick. Not that it doesn’t look great in the packaging, it does, but you’ll never see the extra buds on the body. The werewolf head is the best, and it’s not the standard head in the figure on the packaging. It sucks, but what are you going to do.
Of course, the main selling point here is the multiple heads of the Nightmare Demon, and they crushed all four. The dog’s head is the main one in the box; mutant heads are awesome, but that werewolf head, oh my god; bulging red eyes, detail of the fur, teeth. As a werewolf fan, this may be my favorite werewolf head sculpture of all time. I love how you can mix and match weapons and accessories with each head, and the soldier’s body is awesome. I was worried that the legs would bend, as I’ve had this issue with some NECA figures lately, but it’s not here. It really makes me wish they just made a four digits An American werewolf in London pack so I could have all four soldiers, but it would have been expensive, and not everyone would buy more than one. It’s an incredible number, however, and I look forward to having more for the four presentations.
So suffice to say I think you should buy this. I’ll have several, and I’m sure it’ll be in my top 10 numbers for the year next month. It’s a fantastic start for their An American werewolf in London offerings. This is hitting stores now and can be ordered here also.
