Horror Icons Go to the Savage World from Funko in September

Posted by August 16, 2018 Comment

Savage World, a new line of figures coming soon from Funko, are done in the style of Mattel’s old Masters of the Universe figures. Standing at 5.5 inches tall and muscular bodies, they feature around six points of articulation and accessories. They released Mortal Kombat figures in this style already, and now we get something great for all of us Monster Kid collectors out there: horror icons!

It’s Morphin’ Time! Shout! Factory TV will partner with social video platform Twitch to host Power Morphicon LIVE, a livestream from the 6th bi-annual Power Rangers fan-run convention. Fans can experience the action and excitement beginning Sunday, August 19 at 10 a.m. PT on Shout! Factory’s official Twitch channel. Hosted by Brian Ward of Shout! Factory, Power Morphicon LIVE will offer fans of the iconic series an insider’s view of the event, featuring live interviews with cast and crew from the convention floor, streamed panels, special features and other highlights from Power Morphicon 2018. The morphenomenal livestream will broadcast live from the convention floor at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA. Launched with the original hit series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in 1993, the Power Rangers franchise quickly catapulted itself as a pop culture mainstay. Following its introduction, Power Rangers became the most-watched children’s television program in the United States and remains one of the top-rated and longest running boys live-action series in television history. The series follows the adventures of a group of ordinary teens who “morph” into superheroes and save the world from evil. It is seen in more than 150 markets, translated into numerous languages and a favorite on many key international children’s programming blocks around the world. Following the live event, the stream of Power Morphicon 2018 will be available for VOD viewing on Shout! Factory TV.

Welcome to your worst nightmares.
Everyone’s favorite Horror Villains – Freddy Krueger from
‘Nightmare on Elm Street’, Jason Voorhees from ‘Friday the 13th’,
Leatherface from ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’,
Michael Myers from ‘Halloween’ and Pinnhead from
‘Hellraiser’ – are ready to haunt your dreams and chase you down.
Freddy, Jason, Leatherface, Michael Myers, and
Hellriaser are heavily armed and
entirely fitting additions to the Funko Savage World line.

Look, I will be the first to admit that these are not for everyone. I got to see prototypes of these and others that may be coming soon (Thundercats!), and I think that they are pretty awesome. Then again, I also love the old MOTU line, so Savage World is right up my alley.

All five look great, with awesome sculpts and neat winks and nods to the characters’ classic looks. My favorite is Michael Myers, but I also really like the Jason and Leatherface ones quite a bit. Thankfully they did not do a Chucky, because I can think of nothing more frightening than a giant, muscular Chucky chasing me around — and that is nightmare fuel I do not need.

These will be available in stores in september, just in time for Halloween displays to go up! You can preorder some for yourself already here.
