Funko has brought a wider assortment of horror icon toys to the table than any other company in recent years, particularly with their POP! vinyl and ReAction lines. And then there’s their blind box Mystery Minis line, which to date has spawned two full-on collections of characters from our favorite horror flicks.
Dubbed “Horror Classics,” the first two series’ of mini vinyl toys collectively included icons like Pennywise, Captain Spaulding, Pinhead, Chucky, and even Alfred Hitchcock, and the third wave is soon headed to store shelves. As shown off by the webstie Pop Vinyls – and I tip my hat to James Harris for the heads up – Horror Classics: Series 3 will bring fourteen new Mystery Minis toys into the line.
First up, previously released characters Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees get brand new Mystery Minis, respectively based on sequels Dream Warriors and The New Blood. The third series also includes the Wolf Man, Patrick Bateman, the shark from Jaws, the Mummy, The Shining‘s Grady twins, Slimer, Elvira, Alex from A Clockwork Orange, Jack Torrance, Regan MacNeil, Adam Maitland and American Horror Story: Freak Show‘s terrifying Twisty the Clown.
No word yet on a release date, but you can check out the new wave of Mystery Minis horror icons below!
