Freddy Krueger Slices His Way Into MMIV

April 20, 2001

Sometimes, if rarely, the rumors are true. This is one such time. The lineup for Movie Maniacs IV has been shuffled due to a revamped film release schedule from New Line Cinema.

    Jason X, the film initially scheduled for August, has been rescheduled for 2002. Therefore the Jason X action figure has been removed from the MMIV roster and pushed back to 2002's Movie Maniacs V.

    This obviously leaves a late-in-the-game hole in the starting lineup. Fortunately, we've got a killer substitute: a sweater- and hat-wearing madman with a blade fixation. That's right ... Freddy Krueger.

    The new Freddy Krueger figure is the same eerie sculpt as last year's 18-inch version, minus the voice chip, and scaled down to regular Movie Maniacs size.

    Movie Maniacs IV is set for a September release.
