The Scream of 31 Days of Toy Terror: Ghost Face from ReAction Horror Series by Funko
Height: 3 7/8ths inches
Articulation: Swivel hips, swivel shoulders, and a swivel head.
Original Retail Price: $10 dollars
Year of Release: 2014
* Funko captured the look of Ghostface really well: You've got a simple black robe, like a traditional Halloween costume robe, and the mask. While Ghostface is build in the style of a late 70s/ early 80s Kenner action figure, the robe is sculpted with some creases to almost give off the illusion of movement. There's something about Ghostface's design that really works well. Maybe it is because of how generic it is, and I don't mean generic in a bad way. Since so many different people assume the role of Ghostface in the series, Ghostface really and truly could be anyone.
* The mask is what really sells the character, though as it really was just a regular Halloween mask. Produced by Fun World as part of a line called Fantastic Faces, the Ghostface mask is something I distinctly remember seeing at costume stores as a kid. It was a cool design, if a bit generic, but that's what makes it work under the right circumstances. The ReAction figure captures the design well. It's also painted quite neatly, which helps it stand out all the more.
* If you've ever held a figure of this type then you probably know what to expect: Five points of swivel articulation. The figure is durable and made from a harder plastic than many of the other Funko era ReAction figures. He looks right at home next to most other lines in this style.
* Ghostface only includes one accessory, but it's a vital one: His hunting knife. It's on the smaller side but it's a great silver color with quite a bit of detail. The figure holds it really well and it absolutely completes his look.
* Ghostface is wearing a robe but, to give him the same articulation as everyone else, he has a giant split down the middle. Some of the Kenner Star Wars figures had this design, but Funko's figure has too much of a gap. It just doesn't look right here.
This is the first figure of Ghostface I've reviewed on the site. For more figures from the ReAction Horror Series check out the following:
