Huh, so pre-orders are on offer for a Halloween Kills Michael Myers Ultimate figure, but no pics? Are we to expect some promo/trailers to be dropping soon in that case? Why solicit with no product to show?

Well lots of stuff gets listed by all kinds of companies without a picture, so it's not that uncommon, even though NECA doesn't usually. But they hid a lot of the previous Halloween stuff (although not the whole figure) because of publicity restrictions.

Plus, one would assume we have a pretty good idea of what Michael Myers is going to look like since he usually looks fairly similar... (Cue pics surfacing of him wearing 90s multicolor spandex and a Abe Lincoln top hat)

Will a tie dyed t-shirt and multi color wristbands do?

Not to get into spoilers (for a 2018 movie lol) but given his situation at the end of the movie, he could potentially look very different...

I hate how awesome that looks. I just can't bring myself to by these 8" figures. I've tried to force myself again and again to buy. Why, oh, why did they have to stop making the 7" line before getting to all these new designs? (Rhetorical.) Really makes me hate NECA on 1 level.

Yeah I would be all over a 7" ultimate Eddie collection. I had their Somewhere in Time Eddie, but the articulation was lacking. I'd love to see some 7" love for Iron Maiden.

I too would prefer a standard 7” line, and dont typically go for the 8” mego style figures. But these look great in hand, and I’m a pretty big Maiden fan, so these guys make their way to my shelves. I do like they way they look in the current smaller boxed packages too.

Neca’s old maiden figures were great looking, but basically statues. I really did like how they gave the live after death Eddie legs though!

Neca just posted an update if this guy. I can't wait! Though he's got a bit of googly eyes going. Image
