McFarlane Toys scares up ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s’ construction sets

McFarlane Toys has joined forces with video game creator Scott Cawthon to bring fans collectible construction sets based on the popular “Five Nights at Freddy’s” horror franchise.

A Walmart exclusive, the first “Five Nights at Freddy’s” set — the iconic “Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza” restaurant — “features 3 figures (Freddy, Bonnie & Chica), party balloons, arcade cabinet, star streamers, happy birthday banner, party stage, decorative clouds and stereo speaker.” When placed together with the additional “Five Nights at Freddy’s” construction sets, it will build the camera map from the game.

“We’ve struck the perfect balance,” Todd McFarlane, Owner and CEO of McFarlane Toys, said in a statement. “The mini figures for the ‘Five Nights [at Freddy’s]’ sets are equal parts cute and creepy.”

Over the past two years, Cawthon’s “Five Nights at Freddy’s” mobile game has fostered three sequels and continues to enjoy over 2000 daily installs as well as a spot in the top 100 paid app for mobile devices. The series rose to popularity after YouTube vloggers recorded their experiences playing the game.

The first set (pictured below) retails for $29.99 and will arrive in summer 2016.
