Funko Bringing Fallout Mystery Minis To Market This Fall

I've spent more money than I care to admit on Funko's Game of Thrones Mystery Minis figures. Great satisfaction comes from opening a blind box to discover a new figure.

And yes, it's depressing as hell to open a box to find a duplicate figure. Starting this September, Fallout fans are invited to hunt for their favorite figures in Funko Toys' first Fallout Mystery Minis series.

This set consists of 12 different sculpts from the Fallout universe. Unlike the Game of Thrones series', none of the Fallout figures are rare. You have a 1 in 12 chance to get any figure, including the awesome Mysterious Stranger.

No pricing details have been released yet. Here's hoping series two consists of just Vault Boy in his various bobblehead poses from Fallout 3.
