Variety is reporting that orders for an action figure based on the Cloverfield monster are being taken over at Hasbro's website. The figure won't ship until September 30 and, presumably in the interest of keeping the monster's look under wraps a while longer, no images of the toy are available just now. If you absolutely must have one of these, start saving your pennies because it's going to be a bit pricey. Aimed at the collectible crowd, it's selling for $100. The 14-inch figure comes with two interchangeable heads (one calm, one on the rampage), 10 parasites, and the Statue of Liberty's noggin.
Hasbro, of course is no stranger to movie tie-ins. Not only do they have a long history of movie based toys, but several of their products have gone in the other direction and had films based on them. Hasbro's Transformers was the basis for the last summer's film of the same name and a motion picture version of G.I. Joe is in the works.
