Friday the 13th Cinema of Fear 12" Jason Voorhies

The Friday the 13th Cinema of Fear: 12” Jason Voorhees is a roto-molded fully articulated figure clad in fabric attire and accompanied by chains, removable hockey mask, and bloodstained machete. The Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood version of Jason Voorhees is decayed and partially skeletonized beneath his tattered attire, and a portion of his yellowed hockey mask is cracked to reveal a rictus grin. This version of Jason is noteworthy in that he is intransigently portrayed by the fabled Kane Hodder. At the climax of Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI, Jason is tricked by the adult Tommy Jarvis and anchored to the bottom of Crystal Lake. In the sequel, Jason is resurrected by Tina Shepard, distraught girl telekinetic. Emerging from the depths of the night-black Crystal Lake, the cadaverous muck-laden Jason stalks a group of obnoxious teens in addition to Tina’s mom and Tina’s quack shrink. Tina’s previously unplumbed telekinetic abilities are potent enough that she is able to defend herself against Jason, ultimately imprisoning him at the bottom of the lake yet again; fortunately, however, Jason stages his triumphant return in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.

MEZCO Toyz joins forces with New Line Cinema's House of Horrors, the licensing division for Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and A Nightmare on Elm Street, to breathe life into some otherwise very dead characters. Under their horror brand, CINEMA OF FEAR, MEZCO releases the Jason Vorhees figure combining a highly detailed roto-molded 12 inch figure with full articulation and removable fabric clothing. Jason is even more menacing with his arsenal of twisted weapons and removeable hockey mask. This marks the first offering for the 12" scale of Mezco's smash-hit CINEMA OF FEAR brand.
