Now that poor Michael is gone, it seems his estate will sell the license to just about anyone. Enter Marusan, makers of model kits and these little vinyl collectible Michael Jackson figures that appear to have been resurrected from the 80's. These two are (obviously) based on the 2 pivotal moments in the legendary "Thriller" video, complete with soft vinyl masks to turn them into bobble head looking horrors. They "might" around 10 inches, but it's hard to tell as all sites with info are in Japanese. The release date is set for the tail end of January, 2010, so keep an eye out if you are interested. Now, while I am a fan of retro feeling toys, is it too much to ask for some definitive MJ Thriller action figures?? Transforming Mikes in both of these outfits would be awesome and a must buy for most hardcore collectors, so why all the vinyl, cartoony pieces? Yes, I've seen the awesome 12 inch figure as well, but it's not the same. GIVE ME PLASTIC!!!
