Kaiyodo Unleashing New Jason Figure On You!

It has been many years since Kaiyodo released their vinyl model kits for Jason Voorhees. In fact, their last model kit, which was released by Screamin’, coincided with the launch of Jason Goes To Hell in theaters in 1993. We have showcased the original model kit for visitors in the past.

Below are the three kits that have been released previously. Starting on the left, this is the first kit that was released by Kaiyodo in 1987. It is the typical garage kit and the special feature of this kit is Tom Savini’s head. The middle kit pictured was released by Screamin’ in 1988. The third image to the right was produced for release in 1993 with Jason Goes To Hell. This kit used Kaiyodo’s original design from 1987, but changed the head to fit the look of Jason in Jason Goes To Hell.

Well, now it looks as though Kaiyodo wants to resurrect Jason for themselves. One of our great visitors, Lester Romero, pointed me to a big surprise pertaining to Kaiyodo releasing a new Jason Voorhees action figure. The blog that detailed the new Jason figure was in Japanese, so I found another blog that briefly explains things in English.

“Another surprise from Kaiyodo in its Sci-fi Revoltech series: Jason from “Friday the 13th”. October release I believe.”


Check out the pic above. It is a little hard to see, but there is a pitchfork and what looks like a sign post. We’ll see if we can find a better picture and more about this figure and let everyone know as soon as possible.

  1. Looks great! I can’t wait to get this.

  2. My fault I should have been much clearer. It’s not a vinyl but an action figure. Revoltech’s are normally 4 to 5 inches in height (and Revotech is a huge line. There are over 200 action figures at the moment). Well articulated and come with generous amounts of accessories. I’ve been collecting Kaiyodo figures for about ten years now and for the Jason fans unfamiliar with them I can assure you that Kaiyodo is quality, top notch. Jason couldn’t be in better hands! I’m uber excited this, October can’t come fast enough!

  3. Updated. Thanks, Lester.

  4. I’ll be looking forward to more info on this. I’m very interested to see what Jason this is based on. Great news!

  5. Ive seen that Jason Goes To Hell one somewhere before. For the life of Me I cant remember where.

  6. Awesome! I like hearing about new Jason figures. This one should be very unique. A nice add indeed.

  7. Very nice!!! Love to have one!!

  8. I would love to have that old vinyl model in the 2nd pic. Wish they re-release it, ’cause it was pretty cool looking. :)

  9. I actually have the Screamin kit unopened and sealed in the original box. I had hunted high and low for it and found it over 10 years ago. Never bought the JGTH one.

  10. I bought the Jason Goes To Hell kit, MrsV! ;) I wouldn’t mind owning the one you have, though.
