NECA's Friday The 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter Jason Voorhees Figure

For years and years I have wanted to pick up a Jason Voorhees figure. I am a big fan of the Friday the 13th film series, played the classic NES game, and have always enjoyed the Jason character. For whatever reason I never picked up any of the McFarlane ones although I wanted them. When I finished purchasing all the DVDs and rewatching all the films in order, I decided to see what was available at a reasonable price.

I lucked out as NECA was just about set to release this figure based on Jason's look in The Final Chapter. Amazon had it available for $25 plus S&H so I passed on that. Turns out that Toys R Us was doing the non-Amazon Prime deal where you can get free S&H if your order met a minimum amount.

The figure was only $25 and I had to get to $29. So what did I do? I added an 8 pack of AA batteries which I needed anyway. That got to me just over the threshold, and I got the figure and batteries for what I would have paid for just the figure via Amazon Prime.

I finally received the figure yesterday and it did not disappoint. I have not been this excited to receive a figure since Mattel's Magnum TA arrived.

Anyhow, here's the pics which are also available on Twitter (@S_ATL_Wrestling).
