Prediction Post: Five Nights at Freddy's Mystery Minis - Series 5

* * * Please Note this is only a Prediction, not News at the moment * * *

Series 5 (?)
After the release of Funko's Mystery Mini Five Nights at Freddy's Series 4, I wanted to do an updated prediction post on who could be in the next series (if there is one). I'm guessing the next series will be based off Ultimate Custom Night (and possibly tied into The Fourth Closet). The reason I wanted to make this was because Music Man and Scraptrap are missing from Series 4. Those two, especially Scraptrap, are popular/important characters in FFPS so it felt strange to look over them. Music Man plays a bigger role in Ult. Custom Night than FFPS. It would make sense to save at least one or two characters for an Ult. Custom Night series if you were planning on making one.

Five Nights at Freddy's Mystery Minis - Series Blacklight 1 - Review, Conclusion

(If you haven't already, feel free to check out the Introduction Post)

In this review, I'll be going over all 14 of the FNaF Blacklight Mystery Minis! They are unique color variations of previously released figures. I'll list them in order of first appearance of the figures those characters were based off of. Honestly I don't have much to say about many of these figures. I'll list some things I like, don't like, etc. for the most part. I have a Conclusion at the end where I gather my thoughts on the series, and followed by a ranking of favorites.

Note: Some of the names I'm listing are not official. They are sometimes based off what I think is most appropriate, or what other more official sources may call them.

Character: Freddy Fazbear (Blacklight, Pink)
Appearance: FNaF
Rarity: 1/12
This is the bear that started it all, Freddy Fazbe-err, a pinkish variant of him at least. I like how he looks since you don't see Freddy in bright colors often. He's a neat looking figure that pops out on the desk and even among others in the series. He's one of my favorites in the series.

News Post: Five Nights at Freddy's Mystery Minis - Series 4

Series 4
Some great news coming up! It was leaked that there will be another series of FNaF Mystery Minis! Just like the POP figures they announced, these will be based off characters in Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator (FFPS). This leak came from the French website (who also leaked Series 3) Micromania. They are scheduled to release January 30th, 2019 now.

Here are some images from Funko (scaled, organized by me):

Five Nights at Freddy's - Series Blacklight 1 - Introduction

In 2017, Funko released a set of Five Nights at Freddy's (FNaF) plushies which glow under blacklight. They were vibrant, neon variations of previous plushies, mostly of Freddy and Foxy. They were Funko original creations in terms of color choices. Later in 2018 Funko took this to a new height with more merchandise of blacklight variants for figures, POP figures, and mystery minis. The range of characters and colors was wider this time around. The mystery minis were repaints of the Series 1 mystery minis similar to the Glow Series. Below are some promotional images of the minis.

Five Nights at Freddy's Mystery Minis - Series 3 - Review (Part 2), Conclusion

(If you haven't already, feel free to check out the Introduction Post and Part 1)

In the last review, we went over the first 12 figures in the FNaF Series 3 Mystery Minis. These last 9 are based off of artwork for characters in the FNaF: The Silver Eyes and FNaF: The Twisted Ones. The artwork for the three toys in The Silver Eyes (who also were in The Twisted Ones) were posted in The Freddy Files book. The artwork for the five Twisted animatronics were based off the promotional artwork used for the books. The only one I am not sure on is the Springtrap. There is no (published) promotional art for him besides the recent The Fourth Closet poster artwork. The figure itself seems to be based off his demise in The Silver Eyes versus his resurgence in The Twisted Ones in my opinion due to the anguished look on him. Based off that alone I'll say he's based off The Silver Eyes appearance.

Anyways, enough rambling about continuity and designs, onto the review!

Character: Theodore
Appearance: FNaF: TSE
Rarity: 1/24 (Gamestop only)
This is the decrepit, toy rabbit Charlie owns in The Silver Eyes book. As stated at the top of the post, it's based off the artwork in The Freddy Files. The figure translates well from that artwork and still maintains the style of the mystery minis. It's not small like Plushtrap, but more the size of Toy Bonnie. It's a great figure and has nice, simple details (such as the cracks around the design). The nose on the ones I got were always off-center. I can't tell if that was a factory error or intentional for the design, but just something to note. It's my favorite of the three toy designs!
