Get ready for some actual nightmare fuel.

Acclaimed toy company NECA will be releasing a life-size Pennywise replica from It: Chapter Two in February 2020, just in time for Valentine’s Day (presumably to be used by couples who actually really want to break up), and the first pictures have been released.

We’re not entirely sure why you’d want a giant doll version of one of the scariest horror characters of the past couple of years, but we’re sure there are some superfans out there who’ll want to start saving up for this horrifying thing.

According to NECA, “This life-size foam figure of Pennywise from the newly released IT: Chapter Two will add a terrifying presence to any room, from home to office to retail environments!”

“Pennywise stands over 6 feet tall. The figure is made of foam rubber and latex that’s carefully hand-painted for realistic detail.”

“Comes with a stand. Very simple assembly required; assembly and care instructions included.”

If you want to ‘add a terrifying presence’ to your home, it’ll set you back around £1k ($1,399.99), which is a bargain if you want to keep visitors away.

We’re not sure if the doll will be sold in the UK, but we’ve reached out to NECA and we’ll update when they get back to us.

Whoever ends up buying the foam doll, Bill Skarsgård won’t be bothered. He’s completely at peace with the weird pop culture icon the character’s turned into.

“It became this completely universal thing, outside of the thing. That’s not me. I can’t even relate myself to it anymore,” Skarsgård said as he geared up to shoot It: Chapter Two.

“And now that I’m going back and doing it, it’s such a bizarre thing. I don’t think I’ll ever really experience anything like it. It’s this dualistic thing of me and the work and the character, and then the thing that it became, but it’s fun.”

It: Chapter Two is in cinemas now.
