The King of Pop is dead!

Michael Jackson, 50, has died after suffering a cardiac arrest. One of the most influential figures in pop history whose career included the highest-selling album of all-time, "Thriller," Jackson had been preparing for a concert comeback in London next month he had dubbed "the final curtain."

Jackson collapsed at his rented mansion in the exclusive Los Angeles neighbourhood of Holmby Hills and was rushed to hospital by paramedics before being pronounced dead at 2:26 pm (2126 GMT) on Thursday.

His death had at least two impacts on the world of 1/6 figures:
1. A Hot Toys figure of him - The 12-inch Michael Jackson Billie Jean/History Tour version collectible figure (pictures posted here) is going for US$5,000.00 on ebay.
2. Hot Toys might be announcing a new MJ figure soon. It was due next month but this latest event might have pushed things up a notch. Expect some announcement soon.
