Kinda want to buy this Michael Jackson “Smooth Criminal” figure #MichaelJackson

SH Figuarts Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal figure leaningS.H. Figurearts wants to get in on the take my money bandwagon too with this really sweet Michael Jackson circa “Smooth Criminal” era.

SH Figuarts Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal figure pointingBeyond the great video, the figure quickly took me back to the maddeningly addictive “Michael Jackson Moonwalker” video game for the Sega Genesis. Show of hands for everyone who remembers that one?

I don’t have any S.H Figurearts, but they’ve done some pretty nice work in the past on DBZ and Iron Man figures among others. I sure wish everything could come together for Hot Toys so they can finally release their long awaited and much anticipated ‘Smooth Criminal’ figure, they’ve been so damn back and forth with the Jackson Estate over the rights to release him. The Jackson Estate just needs to back off and allow HT the rights to release more MJ figures like they have before. I have ‘Thriller’ and ‘Beat It’, my boy has them as well as… Read more »

I didn’t realize HT had a Smooth Criminal in the works as well. Mind sharing pics of your Thriller and Beat it figs?

Yeah it’s been in the works for a few years. It was supposed to be released a year or two ago but the Jackson Estate put a block on it. I don’t really know where it stands now, Howard Chan of Hot Toys said it was not going to happen a couple of months ago due to licensing. But a friend of mine told me it was teased not too long ago and he think’s the release is back on, I’m not sure about that. If it’s debuted at the SDCC next month than we’ll really know it’s coming.

Lol omg I had forgotten about that game!! We had Sega channel for the one year it was around and I remember that game…and dying a lot!

This is a really cool figure. If I was an MJ fan I would be all over it. Hope they never make a Buffy or I am doomed!!!

Yeah, it was ridiculously difficult for me too.

Do you have any Buffy figures?

I still have a few boxes full too. Plus, I plan on collecting all of the Funko!Pop Viynls once they are released on September.

Nice! Those are very well done figures. I haven’t watched the show, but have a couple of them to fill in as civilians.

Have any other Funkos?

WHAT? You’ve never watched Buffy??? You totally should. It’s one of the most satisfying show from beginning to end.

The only Funko POP! set I have are the Adventure Time figures. https://flic.kr/p/mjNCGR

I’m avoiding buying any other sets because, yeah, they are all so awesome and I would need them all!

Though I did buy the Funko My Little Pony Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy. https://flic.kr/p/nviTAk
I seem to have missed Pinkie Pie, which makes me sad. Didn’t realize they would be limited runs!

I know πŸ™
I do plan on fixing that soon…one day..someday.
Did you like Angel as well?

I hate limited runs! It’s so unnecessary and cheats people who want a product out of it just for the sake of attracting scalpers.

I love all things Joss Whedon πŸ™‚ you have to start Buffy before you go to Angel though, lots of character stuff and inside jokes that you will miss otherwise. They are both very different shows – Buffy is about surviving growing up, feminism and power. Angel is about being an adult and navigating all the gray areas?

Entertainment Earth says they will get the figure back in stock so I have put my name on their email list. Kicking myself for not picking her up at third eye last month.

Cool. Yeah, I’ll definitely need to clear out a few weekends to burn through it. I imagine it works just fine in binge watching format?

Good stuff. Don’t miss out this time! πŸ™‚

Oh yes, it definitely does! If you’re up to it, when you get the Angel, watch Buffy eps then Angel. Season 1 had a lot of little crossover arcs and jokes as they tried to get people to watch Angel.
