One of my favorite horror movies in the last 10 years is Greg McLean's Wolf Creek, a 'based on true events' Australian flick about a group of backpacking friends who encounter a bloke by the name of Mick, the kind of guy who seems totally normal until he sticks a knife into your back and severs your spinal cord, thus turning you into a "head on a stick". Played brilliantly by Aussie actor John Jarratt, Mick Taylor is one of the more memorable villains in recent years, destined to be a horror icon for years to come.
Imagine my delight when I just discovered that Mick has been turned into a bobble head, which will see release this Summer. Share in my delight with a little image gallery below, along with some information about the bobble head that will soon be telling all your other bobble heads, "That's not a bobble head. This ... is a bobble head"!
Put out by Australian toy company Ikon Collectables, you can now pre-order the 7" resin bobble head over at PopCultcha.com, for the cost of $30. Your pre-order today will ensure that your very own wobbly headed Mick will ship to you in late June of this year!
By the way, in case you didn't hear ...
Mick will return next year, in Wolf Creek 2. Huzzah!!
