Funko has long been a toy company that has managed to make some really fun stuff. They are the only toy company that I can think of that really went out and made great products for the General Mills Monster Cereal characters. They of course have dominated collectors everywhere with their Pop figures. But if you think all Funko truly has to offer are Pop figures than you are missing out on some great lines they have made. They went into the six inch figure scale and came out with some fun lines. I am absolutely obsessed with their Rock Candy line as evidenced by the toy stories I share. Their 3.75 inch lines are great too. (Their latest offering is a Glow two pack that is fantastic.)
With all of that said Funko has released a new line entitled Savage World. It is an all encompassing line that takes your favorite properties and re-imagines them as 5.5 inch figures similar to vintage Masters of the Universe toys. The first introduction to this was with the Son of Zorn toy line that fit right in with the aesthetic of that type of toy design. Next up was a line of Mortal Kombat figures that looked pretty fun and fit right in with He-Man and his friends. However the latest line of Savage World figures comes from the world of horror. Some of the greatest horror movie baddies to ever grace the cinematic screen are now designed to look like they can go toe to toe with He-Man and She-Ra.
I, of course, have been buying these like they are candy. They have come out at the perfect time of year. While I enjoy horror movies all year round, there is something about Halloween season that magnifies my love for horror movies. I want to share with you all some of the figures I have been collecting and just what I have been doing with them. Over on Instagram I have been doing a mash up of horror movies meets the Princess of Power.
The basic premise is that the scariest movie monsters in the world have somehow traveled to Etheria and they plan on terrorizing members of the Great Rebellion! The first two little stories are more like teasers while the final one plays out like a nice silent little fantasy horror film. Enjoy!
"You Are All My Toys"
"Halloween Comes to Etheria"
As you can tell I love horror movies and I love toys. Nothing is more fun than just playing and having far too much fun. I have a Leatherface Savage World figure and only need to get one more which is Pin Head. So there will be more of these silent stories coming soon. Also the next line of Savage World figures are going to be ThunderCats and they look so amazing. Pre-orders are up at various stores so you can check out the images available for them.
Now don't go too far. There is always something in the works at the Diary. I am working on a brand new All My Toys and it is going to be a doozy. So stick around and as always thank you for taking the time to read.
