[email protected] pays the perfect ode to Michael Jackson’s Thriller with this new toy

If you’re an MJ fan and cannot have enough of collectible toys, here’s what you need to get your hands on! We’re talking about the all-new ‘Bearbrick’ by renowned Japanese toy manufacturer – MediCom Toy Incorporated that revives Michael Jackson’s classic “Thriller” music video to the tee. Yes, that’s right!

Taking inspiration from Jackson’s transformation into a werewolf in the musical, the new Bearbrick comes emblazoned with his varsity outfit and dons the same jacket and blue jeans. The exclusive toy set consists of 2 painted, articulated, non-scale plastic figures: A 100% sized version measuring 70 mm and a 400% sized one measuring 280 mm. A larger – 1000% variant is also available on MediCom Toy’s online store, with prices for all three ranging between $110 and $445.

A variation of MediCom’s Kubrick design, a ‘Bearbrick’ essentially is a cartoon-style representation of a bear. It features nine parts or tools: head, torso, hips, arms, hands, and legs that allow for eight points of articulation in total. The latest ‘Bearbrick’ is particularly special as it pays a tribute to the Michael Jackson classic that broke down racial barriers for black artists back in the day and went on to become the best-selling album of all-time by the end of 1983.

If you’re an MJ fan, you don’t want to miss out on this one!
