The wait is almost over, friends.
In the second season of Starz’ “Ash vs. Evil Dead” we met “Ashy Slashy,” a Muppet-like Ash Williams puppet whose name was derived from the moniker given to Ash by the citizens of Elk Grove following the events of the Evil Dead films. We all immediately wanted our own “Ashy Slashy” puppet, and NECA has got us covered.
Just about a full year after the initial tease of their replica puppet, NECA showed off the final packaging art today, revealing that the long-awaited collectible is “almost here.”
According to Entertainment Earth, where you can now pre-order “Ashy Slashy” for $49.99, the puppets will finally begin shipping in January 2018.
“We’ve replicated Ash’s potty-mouthed little doppelganger from the asylum episodes for your (hopefully G-rated) entertainment,” says NECA. “This is a working puppet – insert your hand and you can move the mouth, plus the arms are poseable thanks to inner articulation.”
Ashy Slashy is approximately 15” tall.
