Five Nights at Freddy’s is a prolific franchise. Although it no longer has the popularity of the past decade, the series has a large following and several projects on the horizon. Among them are a video game and Funko merchandise around it. Normally, the game announcement precedes the reveal of any commercial material, but this time Funko went ahead and ruined the game’s reveal surprise.
In mid-2019 Scott Cawthon announced that Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, a new series title was on the way; however, no further details were given in this regard. The project will debut sometime in 2020, so the excitement of the fans increased, since they knew that the formal revelation trailer was near.
But to the surprise of the fans, Funko revealed the merchandise that will accompany the title and thus ruined the surprise of the announcement, since in the images that the toy company shared you can even see several spoilers. We say this because in the merchandise there are new animatronic sample figures and what Freddy and the other dark characters with Glam Rock outfits will look like.

SPOILER: Below will be somewhat revealing details about the characters and aesthetics of the new game in the series, so if you want to find out about them with the official announcement, we invite you to avoid the following lines.
Through his Twitter account, Funko announced that there will be figures from Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach in 2 lines: Action Figures and Funko Mystery Mini. The first collection will be made up of 5 figures, Glamrock Freddy, Vanny, Montgomery Gator, Roxanne Wolf and Glamrock Chica. As for the Mystery Minis, they are 12 in total, although they are 5 original designs and some variants that glow in the dark are metallic or have a shine or a velvety surface.
In case you missed it: Fake news made fans think that the closure of some branches of a food company was related to Five Nights at Freddy’s.
As you can see, the information not only indicates some names of these characters, but also reveals the appearance they will have, something that until now has been kept secret, at least regarding the game, since not a single trailer has been shown.
The most interesting thing is that pre-sales are already available and could even reveal the release date of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, another mystery so far. As reported by Eurogamer, Walmart refers that they will go on sale from September 17, 2020, while on GameStop it appears that the release date will be August 15, so it is very possible that the game will be premiere sooner or later but very close to those dates.

Apparently the early disclosure was on purpose, as Funko’s tweet is still available. Given this, the creator of the series, Scott Cawthon mentioned on reddit that « things will happen very very different from now on » and asked fans to « do not let any of this bother them much. »

We took advantage of the fact that we talked about leaks about video games through toys to inform you that a Mega Construx set was recently believed to reveal a Halo Infinite spoiler, although 343 Industries later clarified that fans should not worry, because the figures do not contain revealing data about the new adventure.
