The new Michael Jackson action figure: 'Bad' or just 'Human Nature'?



Michael jackson action figure You knew it was coming; it was just a matter of when ... and how weird. Introducing the Michael Jackson Thriller action figure.

Standing a slim 12 inches high, it’s technically a 1/6th scale collectible showing the late King of Pop as he appeared in the Thriller music video.

To that end, it includes two different heads (regular M.J. and zombie Jacko), two costumes, FIVE sets of interchangeable hands, two pairs of white socks and black shoes. Oh, and one additional “posing right hand.” (What ... no multiple noses?)

Lest you think the whole idea is in poor taste, it’s offered by the same toymaker -- Dark Figures -- that makes action figures for all the classic horror flicks, so this is relatively good form by comparison.

Waiting for price? A cool $189.99. Yow! We squeal, grab our collective crotch and slowly moonwalk away.
