Funko released this new line of Edward Scissorhands pop figures as part of their Funkoween in May event and we are glad they did.
All Tim Burton fans rejoice as Funko has released a number of Edward Scissorhands figures. The last time we saw a Funko Pop figure based on Edward Scissorhands was in 2013 and needless to say, it has been a long wait for the fans. Directed by Tim Burton, Edward Scissorhands starred Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder, and the classic movie is still a favorite among Burton fans. Funko released this new line of the toys as a part of their Funkoween in May event and we are glad they did, reported Comicbook.

Along with Edward Scissorhands, a number of other horror movies have been getting new Pop! treatment and choosing just one is becoming really difficult. The Pop figures are now available for pre-order. Apart from getting our favorite Edward Scissorhands in a miniature figure, fans are also getting Kim in a white dress. Edward is dressed in his iconic costume, and another figure shows Edward sporting his expertly crafted Dinohedge.
When are we able to preorder them in the UK?— Łàúręñ🥀🖤🤍 (@I_Love_Depp) May 19, 2020
Two additional Edward Scissorhands Pops! will also be available to buy. One of them consists of Edward in his makeup mask, which will be exclusive to Books-a-Million and the second one shows Edward holding his show-and-tell cutout which will be sold exclusively at Walmart. Personally, I'll be picking up as many as my budget allows me and the rest has to wait, sadly.
Understandably, people were thrilled to hear the release and took to Twitter to show their appreciation. One person wrote, "@OriginalFunko You are killing me with all of these Funkoween announcements this week! I've been so good and haven't bought any nonessential things for the past 2 months, but you're making my will power weak. I'm already beginning to justify that these Pops are necessities lol."

A second one added, "Some are! Lol I need a Nancy and Edward Scissorhands I think the deluxe one is best for my collection." A third one quipped, "Ah yes, I love the Halloween season! When The outdoors get so hot and miserable, all the kids get let out of school and... Wait no it's summer." What do you think about the latest collection? Let us know your thoughts below.
Edward Scissorhands released in 1990 and along with Johnny Depp, the fantasy romance movie starred Winona Ryder who falls in love with Depp's character when he is taken in by her family. Considered to be one of the best works of Tim Burton, the movie has a cult following and a very loyal fanbase. The movie was critically acclaimed and saw a huge financial success too in the box office.
The official synopsis of the movie reads, "A scientist (Vincent Price) builds an animated human being -- the gentle Edward (Johnny Depp). The scientist dies before he can finish assembling Edward, though, leaving the young man with a freakish appearance accentuated by the scissor blades he has instead of hands. Loving suburban saleswoman Peg (Dianne Wiest) discovers Edward and takes him home, where he falls for Peg's teen daughter (Winona Ryder). However, despite his kindness and artistic talent, Edward's hands make him an outcast."
