Coming Soon: Savage World Horror from Funko

Plastic and Plush - 17 August, 2018 - 18:00

The first thing I thought when I saw the new 5.5-inch tall Savage World figure series from Funko was "there are going to be some angry kitbashers and customizers".

Looking very similar to the 1980's Masters of the Universe figure line, Savage World is starting off with a Horror Villains series, featuring Freddy Krueger from ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’, Jason Voorhees from ‘Friday the 13th’, Leatherface from 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', Michael Myers from 'Halloween', and Pinhead from 'Hellraiser'.

It must be noted...a smaller scale (3.75-inch) Mortal Kombat Savage World series was released by Funko. Although, they didn't look as MOTU-esqe. You can currently pre-order the Horror Series over at Amazon.com for $14.99 each (expected to ship September 12th 2018).
