At least that one looks like Keaton but I agree on the hair

It does look like Michael Keaton. A lot. That's the main reason I said this looks better than Sideshow's first Beetlejuice.

Shown below is a look at the new Beetlejuice 1/6 Scale Figure from Sideshow Collectibles with a suggested retail price of $280.00.

Having trouble with the living? Are you tired of having your home collection compromised by pesky humans who don’t understand? Well, then you need the afterlife’s leading bio-exorcist on your shelf!

Come on down to the Maitlands’ miniature graveyard and scare up Sideshow’s new Beetlejuice Sixth Scale Figure. This articulated horror figure is so detailed, you’ll swear the real thing was shrunk from head to toe.

The Beetlejuice Sixth Scale Figure boasts a faithful likeness to actor Michael Keaton in the iconic film role, with a sneer on his face and a mildewed mustache that will make your skin crawl. His portrait also features soft, synthetic hair wildly feathered out for that perfect fresh-from-the-coffin look. The Ghost with the Most is also dressed to distress, wearing a custom-tailored fabric suit with a dizzying array of stripes. Grave dust and other assorted stains give Beetlejuice a weird and otherworldly look — because this guy’s not afraid to get down and dirty, hey-o!

If you’re still looking to turn up the juice, the Beetlejuice Sixth Scale Figure includes a variety of accessories and swap-out hands to give you total control of this wildcard in your collection. He comes with the Handbook for the Recently Deceased (this thing reads like stereo instructions) and his wristwatches. Eleven total hands are included, each carefully manicured with his monstrous claws and mottled complexion. From holding the Handbook to filing his nails, Beetlejuice is practically oozing with personality and posing possibilities. So, what do you think? You think he’s qualified for your collection?

It’s showtime! The Beetlejuice Sixth Scale Figure by Sideshow is sure to be a prized possession in any film fan’s collection, simply to die for. All you have to do is say his name three times ... or place your order today.

And watch out for those sandworms, they’re running rampant this year.

I love Beetlejuice and was seriously considering this, but $280? 

I get the cost of the rooted hair...but Sideshow needs to understand that - try as they might - they aren't Hot Toys.  I'd be concerned about how well the hair turns out IRL.  I think this is their first (or one of the first) foray into rooted hair.  IMO they don't have the record of quality (yet), and their offerings are nowhere near as robust for the same price as Hot Toys. 

This figure lists 11 hands (really? eleven? ) but you wouldn't even know that unless you read the "What's in the Box section because they can't be bothered to post an image of everything you get.  Such a missed opportunity - no Beetlejuice headstone accessory/base or alternate portraits?  The Beetlejuice character was such an wildly expressive character a single portrait doesn't seem to do him justice - especially at this price.  Sacrifice some of those hands for something with more value.

A pretty big disappointment for me, but no shade on those who find the value here - I'm glad it exists.  I just hope it doesn't sour future opportunities from Hot Toys or 3rd parties if it doesn't sell well.  It will be interesting to see how the first reviews turn out.  Maybe I'll snag it later if the price drops to 200ish or below.
