If you haven't seen Cloverfield yet, then you probably shouldn't be reading the site, but we'll warn you anyway. The photos contained below are massive spoilers related to the movie. Hasbro has developed a Cloverfield monster toy and finally revealed photos of what the completed thing looks like. The toy is a limited collector's edition that can be bought on Hasbro's site and will ship starting at the end of September. Whether you love movie collectibles, are a Cloverfield fan, or are just curious to get a closer look at the monster, take a look below - you might actually be impressed at what Hasbro has created.
The toy is 14" tall, features 70 points of articulation and incredible life-like detail, authentic sound, and includes 10 parasites, two interchangeable heads, and a Statue of Liberty head accessory. You can pre-order it only on Hasbro's site here.
I know I'm already buying one of these. There's just something about movie collectibles that I absolutely love. I'm trying to build up a collection for my new place that I'm moving to in LA. This one really gets me excited because the movie had such an amazing build up and it will never be forgotten. While this isn't a Sideshow Collectibles statue, it's close enough and it's obvious Hasbro put in lots of work to turn this into an awesome "toy". I'm excited to add this to my slowly-but-surely building collection of other movie collectibles, including recently the Ash statue from Sideshow. Thanks for making an awesome toy, Hasbro!

I agree that Hasbro did a good job with this Cloverfield collectible however, it is, without a doubt, infinitely more impressive onscreen. Although the monster is very original, the movie really must be seen to appreciate the size, strength & overall magnitude of this thing.

... Wow. Totally wasn't expecting this from Hasbro. It's been many years since I've applauded something they've done.

wait...i'm confused. it doesn't look like the mouth opens and closes when you look at it. but two photos show the mouth opened while the other shows it closed. so does it have a open/close function? and where are the orange pulsating things? i think i'll wait for a more detailed toy if i'm gonna buy one.

Is it just me or does this thing look like a bat except the skin on the wings is removed?

i myself like hasbro's adaptation of the wicked monster. i only have one grife though, wasn't the monster green?

I'd buy it if Hasbro would sell to Canada. I mean come on can't they figure out the postal system? I don't care how expensive it would be, just make the customer pay the cost. It feels like one more big "Well we make enough money why should we bother.... F^ck you!" from Hasbro. Hasbro really needs to address their negative public image. They just don't seem to care.... I mean they should at least fake it!
