To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Haunted Mansion ride, Funko are rolling out the red carpet for these brand new Disney Parks exclusive Pop! Vinyl figures. Let’s take a look.
Can you believe it’s been 50 years since Disneyland first opened their Haunted Mansion ride? To celebrate this momentous anniversary, Funko are unveiling a number of new exclusive Pop! Vinyl figures depicting characters from the Disneyland attraction.
The new line-up will feature the Hitchhiking Ghosts Pocket Pop! Keychains, mini vinyl figures, plus a tonne of new Pop! Vinyl figures. Take a look at some of the exclusives below!
There never seems to be any shortage of Disney releases when it comes to Funko. It’s refreshing to see some more Disney Parks figures designed to tug on the nostalgic heart strings. The Haunted Mansion ride, as well as the film adaptation, has a place in the heart of many Disney fans as well as within the pop culture cannon. So many fans want to get their hands on these creepy-yet-cute releases-- and for good reasons! The colouring, the molds, and the detail all looks incredible.
There’s no guarantee which online retailers will get their hands on these exclusives, so be on the lookout. (Keep your eye on the Ozzie Collectables Latest Additions page. You never know!)
Looking for a little more adventure? A new Splash Mountain three pack is also on the way. Featuring Br’er Beat, Br’er Fox, and Br’er Rabbit, this gorgeous and highly detailed new release celebrates the iconic Splash Mountain Disneyland ride and the film Song of the South. It will be available first at Disneyland Resort this month (August) and elsewhere online later in the month, so keep an eye out!
With all the changes going on around Disney - whether you’re talking about changes to the company, the parks, the Fox merger, of even just the film standards - it’s important that fans find common ground and remember what brings us all together in the first place. Fandoms from all walks of life, cosplay, princesses, Halloween and holiday themed fun: these are the things that make up the magic of Disney and encourage fans to keep coming back. For many, these rides are a point of deep nostalgia. Disney is the cultural zeitgeist that sees fans from all over the world joining together to celebrate something that makes them happy. And I for one am excited to see even more releases as new anniversaries pop up to celebrate!
