Thirty-four years ago, Stephen, Charles, and Edward Chiodo brought the world the horror comedy classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space (watch it HERE). They’ve been hoping to have the chance to make a sequel ever since, but while fans continue to wait to see if that’s going to happen, at least Mego has released a new Killer Klowns figure we can add to our collections. This officially licensed, retro-style figure is an 8″ version of the clown Jumbo, who has fourteen points of articulation. The figure comes in a retro-style blister package. You can buy the figure – which goes for the price of $31.97 – at THIS LINK, and you can see images of it at the bottom of this article.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space has the following synopsis:
When teenagers Mike and Debbie see a comet crash outside their sleepy small town, they investigate and discover a pack of murderous aliens who look very much like circus clowns. They try to warn the local authorities, but everyone assumes their story is a prank. Meanwhile, the clowns set about harvesting and eating as many people as they can. It’s not until they kidnap Debbie that Mike decides it’s up to him to stop the clowns’ bloody rampage.
Grant Cramer, Suzanne Snyder, John Allen Nelson, Royal Dano, John Vernon, Michael S. Siegel, Peter Licassi, and Christopher Titus star.
The last we heard one of the Chiodos address the possibility of Killer Klowns from Outer Space 2 getting made was way back in November of 2020, at which time Stephen Chiodo confirmed that they had some talks with the Netflix streaming service. Chiodo said,
We are talking to (Netflix). We’re talking all the time. Get this: we’ve been trying to do a sequel since we made the film and fans get angry with us. We don’t mention it too much, because they get angry. They say, ‘Oh, what’s the matter with you guys?’ But we’re trying. The business is just a bear, moves at a glacial pace. There’s interest, and it wanes and flows. You get some executives who really want to do it, then, all of a sudden, musical chairs. They’re out, a new regime is in, and they don’t get it.
