As a fan of horror films from the eighties and nineties (you know, when they were REALLY cheesy) I have to say that I’m pretty excited about this announcement from our friends at Funko. We’ve already seen Jason, Freddy, Michael Myers and a slew of other baddies immortalized in vinyl, so it was time to bring on another batch, and what better time than Halloween.
This press release landed in our inbox last night, while most of you were out trick-r-treating.
Pop! Movies – Happy Halloween
We have a TREAT for you today!
The new horror Pop!’s are finally on their way!
…This is not a trick!
We didn’t leave any of your favorite creepy cronies out!
Try not to scream!
You can click on any of the images below to bring up a larger version, complete with sharing tools so you can put these on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, etc.
Featured in this release, we’ve got Ghostface (Scream), Ash & Deadite (Army of Darkness), Pennywise (IT), Chucky (Childs Play), Sam (Trick r Treat) and Captain Spaulding (House of 1000 Corpses).
JUST ADDED (11-02-13) We haven’t received an official press release on this one, but thanks to some snooping on the Facebook group “Funko Trading by PopVinyls.com” we found a glam image of a secret Funko Pop! for this same Halloween line of figures. (thanks for sharing Brian England)
You might remember some of these characters from an article we did earlier this year Horror Movie Mystery Minis – Trick or Treat Fun from Funko. A lot of the same characters are listed. We’re not sure what happened with the release of the Mystery Minis (we’re checking) but now you have some options. Do you want a little scary or a little-little scary. Either way, scary never looked so cute.
These awesome figures will be available November 12th, but you may not wanna wait for them to land in your local comic book shop. Head over to one of the links below and pre-order your Halloween Movie Pop!’s before they disappear.
