And the Sixth Movie Maniac Is?

  Snake Plissken
  SNAKE PLISSKEN
The Thing, version II, will be the sixth figure for the Movie Maniacs III line in 2000. Based on John Carpenter's remake of the classic 1951 sci-fi/horror flick, the monster in "The Thing" had no real form (it took the shape of whatever it consumed). So McFarlane Toys has created two separate action figures based on crucial scenes in the film.

    The first Thing figure is the Blair monster, the huge main creature at the end of the film.

    The second is the Norris monster that bursts from a dead character's chest and is summarily burned to a crisp in the movie. This figure will be packaged with the multi-legged, disembodied head creature from the film.

    The other four figures in Movie Maniacs III are:

  • Ash, the swashbuckling anti-hero from Sam Raimi's "Army of Darkness." Ash will be packaged with a mini-evil Ash from the film, a shotgun, chainsaw, gauntlet glove and the Book of the Dead.

  • Edward Scissorhands, based on the title character of Tim Burton's stunning 1990 film. This highly articulated action figure captures both the innocence and potential for violence inside Edward Scissorhands as he tries to cope with his disability: scissors for fingers.

  • Snake Plissken, based on the Kurt Russell character from "Escape from L.A.," John Carpenter's followup to "Escape from New York." Snake is totally stylin' with his eye patch, holster, two handguns, a shotgun and a removable long overcoat.

  • The Fly, from the 1986 David Cronenberg classic movie, gives new meaning to "ironing the bugs out." Ambitious young scientist Seth Brundle has created a teleportation machine. He tests the device on himself, but a common housefly gets into the portal with him. The computer somehow synthesizes Brundle's DNA with that of the fly, creating a new species, Brundlefly. It starts slowly, but Brundle eventually devolves into a four-legged housefly with sticky limbs and acidic vomit. And The Fly action figure comes complete with a custom drool base.

    Look for all six Movie Maniacs in stores this fall.
