Funko has official made this week (May 18th-22nd) Funkoween and all week they have been revealing Halloween-themed Pops that will be hitting stores this year.
From The Nightmare Before Christmas all the way to brand new Countdown Calendars there really is something for everyone and this week's releases have been so great to see each day.
I've put together a list of some of my favourite reveals for you to check out below. Now excuse me while I figure out how badly my bank account is going to be hit...
Extending the already huge range of The Nightmare Before Christmas Pop figures comes even more releases. This time you'll be able to get your hands on another new Sandy Claws Pop, Sally, Oogie, Jack and even a new release of the highly sought-after Mayor. The original Mayor Pop which was part of the very first release of NBC pop figures can now fetch you up to £200 on Ebay.
Along with these releases you can also get your hands on a new Oogie Boogie keychain, 10 inch Jack and also new Dorbz!
One release I really didn't see coming is the release of a whole range of Marvel Zombies. The new zombie pops will be available as standard pop figures (with additional variants) as well as new Mystery Mini pops and Keychains!
All you need to do now is decide which ones you will be getting, if not all of them of course. As a side note how cool would a Marvel Heroes Zombie film be?
How cute are these Minnie and Mickey Halloween Pops? Personally I have never been a huge fan of Mickey and Minnie as they're just not my thing but these I actually really love. The contrast of colours used really gives them a classic/vintage style look. I would by lying if I said I wasn't tempted to purchase these for myself this year.
Making their Pop debut these Corpse Bride pops are another surprise release for this year. Emily and Victor will be available (along with scraps who comes with Victor) and hopefully will pave the way for even more releases from this wonderful film in the future.
For the third year in a row Funko are releasing more new Hocus Pocus Pops. As a huge fan of this film I am excited to add these to my collection. Funko have already released 7 other Sanderson Sister pops the first being the standard Sanderson Sisters with their brooms, the second release saw them posing (Mary with her cheese balls is still my favourite of them all) and the Movie Moment set which featured all three sisters around a cauldron.
This year we will once again see the Sanderson Sisters return but this time they're flying. As much as I do love these pops, I am slightly disappointed by the lack of other characters that Funko are still yet to release (or even consider). It would be great to see Dani, Max, Billy, even the Mom dressed as Madonna would be amazing. Come on Funko get releasing more from this classic!
The Minions are now getting a Halloween makeover too with a brand new set of Halloween Pops. Available in five different designs, you'll be able to add these to the already growing collection of Minion pops.
If you're a fan of The Craft then you will love these. All four of the main characters from the 1996 film are now available for the first time ever as Funko Pops and they really do look great. It's nice to see this film getting more merchandise released for it as it really is such a great film. A remake to this film is apparently also in the works although I personally do not think it needs it. The original has aged well and is a cult classic.
What's creepier than a film about killer clowns? How about Killer Klown Pops... Another Funko Pop Debut, these Killer Klown Pops will be released in three different designs and are sure to be a huge hit amongst fans of this horror franchise.
When I first saw they had revealed Zombieland Funko Pops this week I honestly thought these had already been released, so it was a nice surprise to find they're a new release. All but Little Rock are available from the Zombieland range which I honestly don't see the logic behind releasing all but one of the main characters but then giving Bill Murray two Pops? I can only assume more Pops are on the way in the future which will include the much needed Little Rock to complete this already awesome collection.
A new addition to the Child Play range of Pop figures is the new 10 inch Chucky Funko Pop. Chucky is carrying a bloody knife and it's also the first 10 inch Pop to be released in the already growing range.
Edward Scissorhands has already had the Pop treatment in the past but now the range is about to get even bigger with not one but five new Edward Pops and for the first time ever a new Kim Pop. I actually think Edward looks slightly better than the original release and it's also great to see him recreating a few other scenes from the film. It's nice that they have released Kim along with the new collection too. Now let's get Peg a release and please Funko release Joyce with her Ambrosia Salad.
The ghost with the most has already been given the Pop treatment (along with Lydia) but for the first time we're being treat to Adam and Barbara in their full creepy transformation look and the look so, so good! I cannot wait to grab these two once they're available later this year.
Another extension to an already released franchise are these two new additions to the Universal Studios Monsters series. A new glow in the dark Frankensteins Monster and invisible man will be released later this year. Can you imagine if the invisible man release was just an empty box?
The final release on this list is this new countdown Calendar. Designed to countdown the days to Halloween, this calendar includes 13 mini Funko Pops from some of the most popular film franchises around. Annabelle, IT, Little Shop of Horrors, The Shining, The Nun, Beetlejuice, The Exorcist, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and The Lost boys are all included in this release which actually makes up a total of ten confirmed Pops. Does this mean there are three more film Pops to be revealed or will this 13 figure set include 3 Pops from the same films?
This is an awesome release from Funko and I really hope they release these every year with new Pops each time. A 31 day calendar would also be awesome too. My only criticism to this calendar is that I wish the countdown started at 13 and then went down to 1 for Halloween but other than that it's perfect!
