I wasn’t originally too excited about them doing Funkoween in May but now having seen the announcements, there is one thing in particular which I cannot wait for! There are a few things which are coming soon although the details are still to be announced… presumably these will be through the Funko Europe shop on EMP as exclusives from the Funko shop, which does mean that these won’t necessarily be cheap.
The first announcement was for Killer Klowns from Outerspace pops which I know are hugely anticipated anyway… They are incredibly cool figures:
Secondly was a 10 inch chucky from Child’s Play 2!
And finally, the third announcement is the one which has got me excited! I love the look of this thing and NEED more details about it now!
There is a miniature advent type calendar done as a 13 day count down, although when it is out I won’t be counting down any days, that thing is getting opened in one go!
It looks like they are the pocket pop type size figures as you get in the advent calendars which I always think are more like a cross between pocket pop and pint size heroes figures. They haven’t left the mystery open too much to be honest which is a shame as they have listed the following franchises… But only showing 4 of the figures is enough to really wet your appetite:
- Annabelle Comes Home
- Little Shop of Horrors
- The Shining
- The Nun
- The Exorcist
- A Nightmare on Elm Street
- Friday the 13th
- The Lost Boys
As we can already see above, the 4 characters which have been announced are Freddy Krueger (a Nightmare on Elm Street), Beetlejuice, Jack Torrence (The Shining) and Regan (The Exorcist). Who do you think will be representing the other franchises? Let me know in the comments… For me I think it is going to be Annabelle, Pennywise (for IT), Audrey II (for Little Shop of Horrors), Valak (The Nun), Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th) and David (The Lost Boys). These aren’t confirmed, this is just what I’m thinking.
What about the other 3 doors… which other 3 franchises do you want to see join this lineup? I want to know your top 3 horror characters you want to see join this bunch, tell me in the comments! I would love it to be Elvira (on a chaise longue for the double wide door 13), Michael Myers and Captain Spaulding.
