Alfred Hitchcock gets his own action figure thanks to Mondo

Alfred Hitchcock has toyed with our emotions via a catalogue of palpitation-inducing movies long enough. It’s time for some pay back.

Now, fans of the Master of Suspense can exact that revenge and toy with the great auteur himself thanks to a new Alfred Hitchcock action figure.

Courtesy of Mondo, the action figure not only bears an uncanny resemblance to Hitchcock but also arrives with a selection of only too recognisable accessories from his hits The Birds and Psycho, including a raven and a butcher’s knife.

In fact the 1/6 scale figure includes the director’s signature suit, cigars, a director’s chair, clapboard and four interchangeable hands.

The figure is available online via MondoTees.com and carries a $185 price tag, so if the suspense doesn’t kill you, perhaps the shock of the dent left in your wallet will.
