Earlier this month we told you that toy company Funko had teased upcoming figures based on both Jaws and Gremlins, which needless to say has us excited for 2015. But those aren’t the only two new horror licenses they’ve acquired, as they’ve just teased some more 2015 offerings!

As part of the company’s annual 12 Days of Funko celebration, the company’s president recently teased some more upcoming products over on the Funko Fanatic forums, which are set to hit stores sometime in the new year.

First up, both the horror and sci-fi lines of Funko’s Mystery Mini vinyl figures will be getting second series,’ which will bring even more horror icons into the mix. The first series’ included the likes of Freddy, Jason, Pennywise and a Xenomorph, and we don’t yet know who will be coming on board in Series 2. The Garbage Pail Kids will also be getting the Mystery Mini treatment.

In their mega-popular line of POP! Vinyl toys, Funko will next year be adding characters from The Munsters, The X-Files, The Strain and American Horror Story: Freak Show to the mix, along with Shaun and Ed from Shaun of the Dead. It’s highly likely that this means we’ll be getting the first ever Twisty the Clown toy, which can’t come soon enough.

And finally, three new licenses have been acquired for Funko’s retro-style ReAction line, which is the line both Jaws and Gremlins will be added to next year. Joining them will be characters from Aliens, Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Munsters.

Of course, once pictures of these upcoming offerings are revealed, we’ll share them with you here on iHorror!
