A NECA Krampus Action Figure

File this bit of news under “It’s about damn time!” NECA, one of the top companies producing quality action figures for adult collectors today, will finally get around to creating a Krampus figure based on the appearance of the character in the 2015 movie directed by Michael Dougherty. I’ve been clamoring for just such a figure since I saw the film. I have some Krampuses/ Krampi figures, like the one produced by Funko, which is adorable, but doesn’t look exactly like the character from the movie (nor is it supposed to). I want a whole line of NECA KRAMPUS figures. The Elves, the Gingerbread Men, the Jack-in-the-Box. They’re NECA figures so they’re gonna be pricey, but I must buy them anyway. I can skip groceries for a couple of weeks.

When we get that promised figure for next Christmas, I have to wonder, will it come with a removable Santa face? Will we actually get to see what Krampus really looks like? When I first saw the movie in the theater, it was towards the end before I realized that Krampus didn’t look like a demented Santa Claus but was wearing a human face as a mask, like Leatherface or Hannibal Lecter. I loved it, but I did want to see the monster’s face at some point, just for an instant. NECA could show it to us.
