Do you need a friend to join your LDD Halloween III trick-or-treaters? Mezco‘s Pennywise the Dancing Clown from 2017’s IT will make the perfect companion. Those kids were doomed anyway; why not let Pennywise eat them instead?
Mezco is releasing a new LDD doll based on the updated version of Stephen King’s killer clown from outer space. Pennywise is priced at $50 and will be escaping from Derry in November 2022.
Based on the blockbuster Warner Bros. film ‘IT’, Pennywise the Dancing Clown emerges from the sewers of Derry to join the Living Dead Dolls family and feed on your fear! The shape-shifting, demonic clown features bright orange hair and wears his signature clown suit with ruffle detailing. Pennywise can hold his infamous red balloon in his left hand. The LDD Presents IT: Pennywise stands 10” tall and features 5 points of articulation. He is packaged in a die-cut window box, perfect for display.
I’m not a massive fan of the recent IT films. So much characterization was left out, especially when it comes to Mike. On the other hand, Pennywise was pretty compelling, until the very end, at least. The costume matched the book, but the face makeup tried too hard to be creepy. It was like watching a budget Juggalo mildly frighten some teens.
Stranger Things was a blessing and a curse. It snagged many great cues from ’80s horror and adventure films, but then everyone tried to copy the Stranger Things look. IT suffered from that hard. The story of the Losers needs to be told through an extended mini-series. 10-20 episodes, R-rated, and flesh out the characters. That’s the formula to win when adapting these lengthy Stephen King universes.
