Those catalog illustrations look better than the Mystery Minis with plain white eyes I see on eBay.

If they look like the catalog image, I wouldn't mind having the two Frankensteins.

I hope Funko does more cool caricatures like the ones they did for the Bobble Heads, etc.

The white eyed ones are from 2 Mystery Minis sets from a couple of years ago. They only did 4 UM characters, mixed in with other horror movie characters.

These are also going to be available in a 4 pack in the $25.00 range. Totally random, of course.

Wow!  These are awesome!  I about unloaded all of my old ones, but these...  These are great!  Love the new look with the actual eyes.  So much better.  These are all fantastic.  I hope the Dracula with candle isn't too limited.

The hands look better, too.  The blank-eyed minis have chunky fingers that look like something from a Lego set.

I like caricatures.  I just don't like the kind of stuff we have been getting lately.  These are a big improvement.

I like these figures but i HATE blindbox. ESPECIALLY when there is no guarantee on case pack. So I could buy a whole case of these and still not get a full set? No thank you. I'll simply pass. More for the people who are willing to have "fun" with the thrill of trying to find them all....  At the risk of sounding cheap, is something costs more than $1, I am not willing to play the blindbox game.

Luckily for me, I collect only Frankenstein - so it won't be any big deal getting a couple Franks from eBay.

This is a lousy deal for anyone wanting to collect the whole set.

It will depend largely on which one(s) are 1/72. If it's as past mini's have gone, there will be lot auctions with average prices below retail, along with individual auctions for the "chase" figures.

BTW, I'm fairly sure the four pack is just a lot of four of the blind boxes for sale as a group, not a specialty differeing from the case assortment.

My guess would be the Frank with flower, the Drac with candle and one of the IMs.

Just randomly chosen. You could get duplicates.

I hope the Dracula with candle isn't too limited.

Based on prior Funko history I would wager a fair sum that Frank with flower and Dracula with candlestick are both 1/72. Based on high popularity/interest Creech is probably one of the 1/32 but thatís just an informed guess. [only after posting did I note Mike Scott posted the same thing]

I donít like Funko Mystery Miniís as a general rule but these are pretty cool.

Which makes no sense! If something is popular, make it easier to get, not harder. Why piss off your customers?
