So everyone knows that NECA is one of the best out there. I have always loved their action figures. As far as I am concerned, everything they create is gold! I even bought the Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street 2 because it looked so damn good. And I despise Nightmare on Elm Street 2.
I have had my eye on the Pennywise character from the 2017 version of IT. The movie is excellent and Bill Skarsgard is one creepy dude. I don’t do many exclusives for a couple reasons. One, they are hard as hell to find in my area and I am not paying double in some cases on eBay. Two, no matter the company, I feel like they are cash grabs. With that being said, I shelled out the extra few dollars for the GameStop exclusive. Money well spent! Check out the video review below!
As you can see, I dig the figure. The accessories are cool and different from the regular version of this character. This one is bloody, the regular one is not bloody. This one comes with poor Georgie’s severed arm. The regular one comes with the boat. And there is the one negative that I have with the figure. I really wanted that boat. If you are going to make something exclusive, then give something extra. Georgie’s arm with the boat would have been a nice addition. But I don’t like having to base my decision on what to purchase based on accessories. I chose this one because it is bloody. Give me the damn boat!
Overall, I am pleased with Pennywise. One day if I ever decide to display my action figures, he will most likely be in the front row waving Georgie’s arm in all it’s glory. For now, he is safe and sound in his box on my shelf. If you loved the film as much as I did and love NECA, (who doesn’t?) then you won’t be disappointed with the decision to pick this figure up.
