If you are a Michael Jackson fan, you will be excited to know that Hot Toys is rolling out 1/6th scale Michael Jackson (Beat It version) Exclusive Collectible Figure for celebrating the 10th anniversary of Hot Toys.
I was pretty excited when I saw the photo. Certainly an improvement over the previous Thriller and Bad version. Just look at the detail. Really like an cover page of Michael Jackson.
I did a comparsion of the toy costume with the Music Video. It was a match in the costume. Well done Hot Toys.
However what it failed to capture is the energy of the MJ in his youth. Maybe it had to do with his expressionless look.
It is a safe approach I guess as to have a good looking face rather than MJ doing his wild look. But that was how MJ left an impression in his music video Beat it.That was the energy!
Anyway the toy will come with the figure in Beat it costume, 3 pairs of interchangeable palms, figure stand and Michael Jackson nameplate with Beat It title on it.
This exclusive items will be available at the anniversary event in Tokyo in Christmas 2010. More of the details here.
