Hot Toys Pennywise IT Chapter Two Official AnnouncementPaul
You might remember the sneak peek we got of a Pennywise sixth scale figure from Hot Toys at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 if you were following our coverage of the event this past summer. As soon as the images hit social media horror fans everywhere were holding their breath to see if it got an official pre-order announcement or wound up the same as many before it like Vulture and countless others (have a look at our Top 10 Unreleased Hot Toys Prototypes for a deeper look at other canceled figures). The good news is that Hot Toys today has officially announced that this figure is going into the production phase and pre-orders will be opening soon!
With the second film in the series, IT: Chapter Two hitting theaters to what has been an overall positive reception it’s nice to see Hot Toys exploring another license outside of the typical Star Wars & Marvel releases we are used to. Horror fans who have been waiting for Hot Toys to dive into producing sixth scale figures in this genre are celebrating everywhere right now.
Fingers crossed that this means good news for some of the other prototypes we saw revealed at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer. This pre-order announcement means that Hot Toys has not yet forgotten about some of the previously released figures it’s just a matter of getting around to working on them. If this figure has strong sales it would be nice to see them explore producing figures for other films like the Halloween series or A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Here’s a look at the information we have available from Hot Toys as of this writing..
