NECA Re-Issues Cult Classics Part 7 Jason

While NECA has been holding off on creating new 7 inch figures with the re-acquisition of the licence for Jason Voorhees, they have been systematically releasing re-issues of older figures for fans to purchase. Neca first re-issued a 7 inch version of the Freddy vs Jason 19 inch figure sold in 2005. Next, the toy company sent 7 inch versions of Jason from the 2009 reboot to Toys R Us. Now, it looks as though a very special figure has been re-issued as well.

A very enthusiastic fan sent an image to NECA's Twitter account which contained a peek at the new Cult Classics Friday the 13th Part 7: The New Blood figure. The figure was found in a local TOys R Us and looks to be hitting all stores around the country very soon. The original figure was released in a much larger package with an abundance of accessories that included an axe, harpoon, machete, and tree stump. The re-issue of the figure, as seen in the below image, looks to be in a smaller package and only contains a bloody machete.

It sure looks as though NECA will now be running through all of their previous Jason Voorhees figures, repackaging them, and making the collectible available for fans that missed them years before. We will look for better images of the new figure and post them when they are available!
