Freddy Funko Pop! Vinyl Figure

Freddy Pop! Vinyl Figures by Funko - Blue Tie Freddy, B&W Freddy, Pink Hair Freddy & Red Tie Freddy

Funko fans were given an extra special treat at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 when Funko unveiled the Freddy Funko Pop vinyl figure! Freddy is Funko’s popular mascot and fans have been wondering since the Pop toy line started if we’d ever see a true Freddy figure. For the past few years Funko has released “Freddy” versions of previously released figures at Funko Fundays (which takes place at SDCC each year), where they replace a popular character's standard head with that of Freddy. Then at Fundays 2012 Funko dropped the figure we’ve all been waiting for, an official Freddy Pop!

If you’re wondering why The Blot is a little slow to blog about this one, I was waiting to see if the figure would get a wider release. Unfortunately, it looks like this one is pretty rare and your best bet is heading over to Gemini Collectibles where you can purchase the “Red Tie” Freddy Funko Pop! vinyl figure for around $100. At that price it’s unlike The Blot will be adding one to his collection any time soon. 

To date there have been four official Freddy Funko Pop! colorways release, and we have a picture of all four thanks to Funko Funatic board member Justicewarrior88! There’s the “Blue Tie” Freddy Funko with a limited edition run size of 500 pieces, the San Diego Comic-Con 2012 Exclusive “Red Tie” Freddy Funko with a limited edition run size of 96 pieces, the Fundays 2012 Exclusive Black and White Freddy Funko with a limited edition run size of just 48 pieces, and the 2012 Funatic Days Out Pink Hair Freddy limited to 96 pieces.
