31 Days of Halloween: Funko's Pumpkin Rapper from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers

Written by

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Power Rangers franchise, and as part of a year-long celebration, many products have been released that throw things back to where it all began... the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. The camp charm of the original series brought forth a host of memorable characters, but no villain has been more suited for the Halloween season than the big bad of the Power Rangers' 1994 "Trick or Treat" episode - the Pumpkin Rapper. While it was The Nightmare Before Christmas that really drove home the title of "Pumpkin King" for Jack Skellington, there's been many Jack-O-Lantern-headed creatures that have terrorizing (or amusing) the masses for years and the Pumpkin Rapper is one of the best! For 2018, Funko brought the character into the Pop! Vinyl range for an exclusive figure available Only at GameStop. I recently bought one at our local GameStop store, and it only seemed right that we took the Pumpkin Rapper with us to the pumpkin patch...

The Pumpkin Rapper is said to distract his enemies by using "his clever raps and rhymes," rising forth from the pumpkin patch as his minions attach themselves to a victim's head - making it impossible to speak or see. His vine is an additional weapon, used for trapping opponents in combat. Can he be defeated before he ripens? The Pumpkin Rapper would prove to be a popular adversary, having returned for additional episodes over the past 25 years.

The Funko Pop! Vinyl Pumpkin Rapper carries an MSRP of just $11.99. Get him for the 2018 Halloween season, Only at GameStop while supplies last.
