The toy company I work for also had some products on display for one of the companies we hold a development license for. Along with the life-sized Leatherface and Freddy that we'd developed in the "House of Horrors" section of the booth, New Line Cinema also had a life-size version of the armored polar bear from one of their current projects in development, The Golden Compass. My boss took a picture of me standing next to one of the bears. Can't show the whole bear image, sorry. Once I see an official posting on the 'net, I'll be happy to post more. ;)
I'm really looking forward to the series (it's the first in a trilogy). Hopefully, they'll do a great job on the movie adaption of the book. Well, I know I'll go see it at least once in any case - it has Polar Bears! :)
Edit: Ha! I thought action-figure.com might have a picture, and they did! Here's a full image of the Polar Bear. As you can see, I wasn't even up to the bear's shoulder in the above photo. It's pretty tall!
