Pop Culture League Challenge - Here Comes Halloween!

Today's Pop Culture League Challenge - Here Comes Halloween!

First and foremost, this question(?) need to be corrected. Then we can tackle it. It's not Here comes Halloween, it's "This is Halloween!" As in The Nightmare Before Christmas.

This is the classic film that I will be nestling in to watch with my girl on Halloween night. Coupled with some fun foods, and an awesome wine I found - The Seven Deadly Zins (a Zinfandel wine if you couldn't deduce), it's bound to be a great night on the couch.

Of course to commemorate the night, we'll also take some time to thumb through an all new action figure line to add to our ever growing collection. After all, not all treats on Halloween have to be coated in chocolate.

Just when we thought that the ReAction line was dead, Funko throws out this awesome set of series 2 figures from their Nightmare Before Christmas line. Couldn't have been better timing if you ask me.

For variant hunters, Shock has been found facing both forward and backward in the package. Oddly enough, the backward facing one appears to be the more common of the two.

This time around, Funko also gives us a chase figure - A glow in the dark Oogie Boogie. This is packed one per case of Oogie figures, so supplies are definitely limited for this one. Much like other Funko chase pieces, these are being gobbled up like a row of Power Pellets in front of Pac-Man. Grab it if / when you see it. He's already going for $45.00+ on secondary markets.

This line gives me high hopes and great expectations that Funko will continue the line into the future. They have to, right? We need to get a Lock figure to round out the trio of kids.

So there you have it. Here comes Halloween This is Halloween!

    1. Halloween comes only once a year. Treat yourself!

    2. That Glow In The Dark Oogie Boogie is very sweet. I'll be on the lookout!

    3. I'll keep an eye out for you as well.

  2. I love this line! Interestingly the reason it took so long was that they realized that they had to restructure the Reaction brand. I to hope there will be at least one more series!

    1. Interesting. I didn't know they had to restructure the brand. Going to have to Google that one and see what it says about it. Thanks!

  3. Wooow... I remember ofJack = D
