If you're a horror movie fan and/or a Halloween fan, but you haven't seen Trick 'r Treat, you are doing yourself a great disservice. Go out and watch it, right now. It's an anthology movie that's centered around one Halloween night in a small town, and it's basically the Halloween-iest movie you could imagine. Sam (short for Samhain, of course) is the living embodiment of Halloween, and is the face of the movie. NECA made a figure of him, which I missed out on and is now stupid expensive. Funko has made a ReAction Sam and this Pop version. My preference is definitely for stylized chibi cute over faux retro, so I got this version. Sam is child sized, and this Pop is slightly shorter than the standard. His head is normally round, but the transition to Pop form has given it a more squared shape. But he looks like he ought to, a kid in a homemade costume. He's even holding the lollipop that he memorably wields in the movie.
