Someone very sneaky was on hand during the shooting of the new Friday the 13th and managed to snap some pretty candid shots of the new Jason Voorhees unmasked!

Mezco Toys sure didn't hold back at this year's San Diego Comic-Con! The company's Cinema of Fear line just grew with the inclusion of new figures of Freddy, Jason, Leatherface and more!
