Some on twitter are guessing Pennywise, which makes sense with the movie coming out this week.

They are claiming "barely any merchandise" prior so that rules out many of the majors.

Not sure how that's Mego related. Maybe I misunderstood.

It's an eight inch figure with a cloth costume.

Well, yeah. I mean that's implied when they say it's an 8" figure.

That's all there is to it. A consumer asked is it "either Mego or Horror related" and they said "Both". Mego is the nomenclature they used to describe the figure, nothing more.

I like it. Not sure I'll buy it. I was hoping for one of the biggies. I still dream of Michael Myers but I know that doesn't seem to be a possibility. It does fit in will with the line. I might get it on one of those spur of the moment type days.

It's funny when I see it though it makes me remember how controversial that movie was when it came out. Kind of quaint now.

Didn't they also announce retro Chucky in the past week or so too?… a while back Randy noted post-SDCC a bunch of Re-Mego action still to come.

Not a big fan of the movie.

^ I actually shouldn't be either. I, like many of you, am the biggest little kid, and believe in the sanctity of Christmas. I remember the backlash when it came out, and my parents made it clear that it was rotten.

And yet, when I finally watched it as a 40 something (!), I actually found it pretty tame and silly overall. It's trash, for sure, but entertaining with 30 years distance behind it. But I do understand why it's a turnoff still for many.

You know, I've never seen this movie, but I can't stop thinking about this figure...so i guess I'll have to check it out.

To me as well it's Mego "related" if it's 8" scale with a cloth costume. That said...this figure is a really odd choice.:no:

Pre-ordered this tonight. Looking forward to it.

The best part of the movie was seeing Star Wars toys in the background during the scenes at the toy store, if I'm remembering the movie correctly.

How about Finishing Friday the 13th and the other Horror lines first....:hello:

I was hoping for Hellraiser Pinhead, Halloween MM, or Arnold Terminator . This is a Big pass
for me. What about Beetlejuice or Santanico Pandemonium (Dusk till dawn) with snake

Well, a 7" Michael Myers is close enough, I guess!
