Last week we covered the first batch of figures announced for Fresh Monkey Fiction’s Christmas-inspired toyline. There were Santas, elves, and nutcrackers. However, a specific holiday villain was absent. But, never fear, Krampus is here!
Two Krampus figures to be exact! There’s a standard version and a deluxe version. The main difference between the two, aside from a color swap, is the number of accessories. Each Krampus will stand at just over 6″ tall, dressed in their Santa suits.
The deluxe Krampus is priced at $49.99, while the “regular” baddie is $36.99. Both are coming out during the fourth quarter of 2022, but they can be pre-ordered now exclusively from the Big Bad Toy Store.
The standard Krampus has these accessories:
- Naughty or nice list
- Lump of coal
The deluxe version will come with the following:
- Krampus bag
- 2 Lumps of coal
- Naughty or nice list
- Milk and cookies
For those unfamiliar with Krampus, he is the flip side of Santa. Where Father Christmas rewards the kind and virtuous children, Krampus punishes the wicked ones. Rather than leaving coal, Krampus beats the kids with a branch from a birch tree.
Fans of the fictional being can also pick up other Krampus-related merchandise from the website here. For those who are more fans of horror than the happy holidays, it’s the perfect excuse for us to put up demons and other evil beings around the tree each year.
Over the past decade, there have been many horror films based on the mythical creature. The best out of the bunch was Michael Dougherty’s Krampus. The man knows his holiday horror, for sure.
A few years ago, the film also got its own haunted house at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. The creature doesn’t show up in full until the end, but several of the other demons and misshapen Christmas creatures were all over the place. It was probably one of the best houses that year.
