We are at the doors of Halloween and Funatics around the world are planning to get some of the last and most terrifying Funko releases before October 31st to their collections, enjoying a fright night with their scary figures. And it will be a difficult task, considering that there were a bunch of announcements in the last month and probably we must wait to see some of those new Pop!s in our shelves a little bit.
However, and in my humble opinion, the most amazing news came from Asia. We had to wait more than four years to see new figures from the Legendary Creatures & Myths series, and MINDstyle did not let us down, showing us Asian folklore in all its glory.
The new supernatural creatures that join in the series are Yecha, Jiang Shi, Treasure Guardian and Sleepy Ghost, bringing to life some of the most relevant and creepy creatures of the Asian horror mythology in a Funko Pop! size.
It will not be a surprise to see other figures of this series in the short time, and it would be possible that MINDstyle could launch variants of these new figures, such as it did in the past, bearing in mind some of the one most wanted of the series, Aswang (orange), which was one of the surprises of the Funko Funtastic Party 2015, organized by Funko Funatic Philippines.
The fact is that those legendary creatures of the night captivate us since from immemorial times as an important part of myths and traditional legends. But we must be respectful with them, because on Halloween night anything could happen. So, be careful chosing these spiritual figures before adding them to your collection.
