If you grew up in the Philippines, chances are you used to fear the darkness because of tales of the Aswang, the stuff of nightmares among Filipino children and adults for centuries. There was even a time in the ’90s when the news was filled with stories of alleged victims of this dreaded mythological creature. The regular black outs at the time didn’t help. It was crazy.
Now we can take this nightmarish ghoul home as a Funko Pop! vinyl figure. And it’s not just the regular one that we first saw back in Toy Fair 2015 in New York City — we’re getting a flocked exclusive for Philippine ToyCon 2015. This Funko Pop! Flocked Aswang can only be purchased (PHP750) at ToyCon on June 19-21 at Megatrade Halls 1-3. It’s the first ever Philippine ToyCon exclusive Pop! so we can expect it to disappear quickly.
Speaking of ToyCon, I will be there to pick up this cute little monster and maybe meet up with other collectors. I’ll be giving a 10% discount to those who will purchase 2 or more items from the shop and will pick up at ToyCon. Contact me if you have questions. See you at ToyCon!
