Funko Holidaze Pop! - 8-Bit Freddy Krueger

Picking up where we last left off, I'm bringing you another 8-Bit Pop! figure inspired by both Funko and NECA.  It's no secret that NECA has paved the way for these stylized figures and brought their popularity to levels we'd never expected.  Jason was first, but Freddy soon followed suit in a unique, but not quite as odd, physical appearance.  Yet again, this is another figure I'd expect to see released by Funko at some point, although I'm not sure how he'd sell compared to Jason.

Freddy's red & green sweater is just as iconic as Freddy himself but, for whatever reason, Nintendo released their Nightmare on Elm St. video game with a different look.  Freddy was featured in a red and orange color scheme, from top to bottom, but it actually looks really cool.  In fact, there are images out there of Robert Englund wearing this exact sweater in various promotional shots.  I'm not enough of a NOES expert to tell you if it ever appeared in the films or if it was the original concept for his sweater, but it certainly brings back memories and I honestly don't mind the look.  I wonder how it would have translated on screen!
