Where the Wild Things Are x Medicom Toy Kubrick Set

I didn’t think it could get any better than a Spike Jonze remake of possibly one of my favorite books of all time, Where the Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak. But now Medicom Toy has joined in on the fun to produce a limited set of 8 toys, featuring Max and several of the monsters from the story, all set to release sometime in October.  Definitely going to have to surprise my niece with a few of these, she loves when I read her Where the Wild Things Are.
