It's officially summer, and you know what that means: only four more months until Halloween! Okay, well, maybe you weren't thinking that, but if October is your favorite time of year and you love all things spooky, summer just means you're that much closer to fall. And to celebrate the slowly approaching Halloween season, our good friends at Funko are releasing a new series of Pop! vinyls, Pop! keychains, and Dorbz featuring icons of fright like Beetlejuice, Pennywise, and the Queen of Halloween herself, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
First to arrive on store shelves will be Stephen King's most infamous villain Pennywise. In lieu of terrorizing small children, he’ll be focusing his efforts on a single house: yours! The iconic clown from last year's smash film It remains terrifying even in Dorbz form, especially the gory Pennywise Dorbz with a piece of wrought iron through his head. Pennywise is also now a Funko Pop! Keychain, in several forms, including his spider legs form, wearing a wig, or holding his signature red balloon. The Pennywise items will be hitting stores sometime this fall.
Next up, Tim Burton's "bio-exorcist" Beetlejuice gets a new Pop! vinyl, this time wearing his hat from the classic film. You may remember when Beetlejuice pops out of his coffin and floats toward the newly dead couple, he's wearing a hat that says "Guide." Now there will finally be a Pop! figure to match that look. Beetlejuice will be available this July.
And last but certainly not least, the Hostess with the Mostest, Elvira is getting a pair of Pop! style keychains. One will be in her classic black outfit, and the second in her sequined red dress. Both of these are hitting stores this August. To see the complete set of new spooky Funkos, be sure to check out our gallery below.
