Cloverfield Movie Monster
« on: January 21, 2008, 11:09 PM »
Link, but no pics

I'm pretty sure I just shat myself....

Definately going to purchase this monster to decimate everything in my Star Wars collection.... no need to get a Rancor now.

I have not seen the movie yet and am very curious to see the monster. The description sounds really good. I wouldnt mind seeing the Rancor get that treatment.

I did not remember the thing looking like a bat and being so pale like E.T. in the rain. I thought it was a bit more dinosaur like and beefier but with the quick flashes and night scenes I suppose it was hard to tell. I really do not think this looks compelling enough to buy for $100. I personally find it to be a disappointment seeing it clear for the first time and will spend my money on more AT-TE's.

I agree 100% even though you never really had longer than a few seconds here and there to try and examine it.  I thought it had much more girth to it as well, but he just looks like a bunch of sticks here.  I never planned on picking this up, but I'm just glad to see that Hasbro is taking "chances" this year with pricier boys toys.  I think this would be better left to the imagination rather than fleshing it out though.

   As Cloverfield obsessed as I am, Hasbro has let me down with this toy. I really hope it's not the final product. The monster looks waaaaay too pale and thin.
   I was hoping to pose this thing smashing my AT-AT toy in a diorama-ish type setup, but the actually toy just looks like it could get tangled up around the walker and do nothing more. Thumbs down.  :(
   I am still considering a purchase of this guy, but it all depends on the height compared to a Star Wars figure, Toy Fair pictures, how the little parasite critters look, and pictures of the final product. If any of those disappoint me, I'm passing on the monster so I can get another AT-TE (or 5 AT-APs)

I am not really feeling it. I didnt think the design for the monster was that great to begin with anyway.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm disapointed with how the monster looks. I thought it'd look more beefier & slow.  :-\

After seeing it in person i am more impressed than with the picture. It comes with 2 different heads, one open mouth and one closed. It also comes with a couple of mini-parasite monsters and the statue of liberty head which was smaller than i was expecting. I still dont think i will pick it up becuase of the price, but it was cool.

Sadly, we forgot the camera. The only pictures i got were of the Lego life size Clone Trooper and Indiana Jones with my phone.

Hasbro Cloverfield Monster

I haven't seen the movie, but the figure was cool.  :)
