Oddly, various companies over the years have teased Dr. Herbert West action figures that never actually came to fruition, including Executive Replicas, SOTA Toys and Amok Time. The latter company at least released a 3.75″ West toy a couple years back, though they haven’t yet made good on the promise of a larger size Re-Animator action figure.
But that’s okay. Because NECA is stepping in. The company unveiled their 8″ retro-style Herbert West action figure earlier this year, and now we’ve got in-package photos!
“From Re-Animator, the movie based on HP Lovecraft’s classic tale of terror, NECA presents the mad scientist Herbert West in action figure form! The 1985 movie has achieved cult status for its dark and hilarious mix of science fiction, horror and comedy, and starred Jeffrey Combs as a medical student who will stop at nothing to perfect his reanimation serum.
As a clothed action figure, Herbert stands 8” tall and is dressed in his lab coat. He comes with a bottle of reanimation reagent, syringe, bloody shovel, Rufus the cat, and a tray containing the severed head of the last guy who tried to steal his invention. Resealable clamshell packaging.”
Herbert West will re-animate your toy collection in August 2018.
