If this can't be manufactured world wide on a wide spread note then lets get a limited run con exclusive placed on the manufacturer line and sent out - lol if they don't want to send it out on a wide scale then just make it a limited con exclusive so I can have one in my collection for sure lol!

I’d TOTALLY go after these!! Personally though, I’d rather see the regular mike as the common and the zombie version as the chase. Always liked the look of them all as zombies doing the iconic thriller dance!!

What do you funatics think ? Is this something that you guys would like to see or are you content with your Michael Jackson set how it is? I think that there could be regular Thriller Michael Jackson with a Werewolf Michael Jackson chase and also a Glitter Michael Jackson Thriller FYE exclusive. Anyone else agree?


Maybe one day we will get the scary one lol we all want and need it.

The reason it never got released, I read, was because MJ's estate thought it might be in poor taste after his death. I can totally understand how releasing zombie MJ might be considered inappropriate, but surely just MJ in his iconic red suit would be OK?

Exactly - I definitely can understand how a zombie would go be doing too much... but Thriller is arguably the most iconic Michael of all time. This is something that the estate is probably aware of and would be a huge positive move if the estate actually approved this ONE transaction to bring us Michael in the thriller jacket. Of course there are many more Michaels that I would love to have.. but I'd be happy with just thriller mike.

lol! I agree - This is imperative for Pop Rocks - I wouldn't even be mad if they made Mike a limited Con Run since it was part of that set from way back.

May be a possibility - hopefully funko starts to take those older licenses in consideration - they've done so with Spongebob. There was a drought on sponge bob for a minute but it looks like it is making a come back.

Any new MJ mold would make me a very happy person :D
Will Reggie finally give us Mother 3 before he leaves?

...

Guess not :p

...

But will Funko make Earthbound pops before Nintendo (inevitably) releases Mother 3?

...

I don't think I actually ever introduced myself in the Welcome to Funkoland page :-k

Could be for many reasons most likely the licence/property holder did not want them made, did not like the mock up, changed or revoked permision to Funko. I mean even if people wants them does not mean from the business end it can happen. There are lots of things that people want that will never be made...or they will but in the future... and thats not just with regards to Funko but life in genreal LOL

When Funko had the MJ license in the beginning they were much smaller. I think now that they are a juggernaut in the toy industry - It would only be appropriate to revisit this license with more leverage. Let's do a small one off deal where its just thriller Mike and maybe a casual Mike so its a small line and see how they do. All of them are Vaulted so I'm sure something had to happen in the mean time in-between time for the all to vault.
