I'm about 90% in on Jolly Santa. 75% in on Deluxe Krampus. 65% on Classic Santa, 50% on accessory set (dependent on if I get Classic Santa), 30% on Camo Santa, and 10% on Zombie Santa (really only want the evil Santa head...or aa I call him "Atnas".)
How long are these preorders gonna stay open?

Anyway I’m glad to see the Black Santa but I feel it needs a bit more jazzing up instead of just a different skin color with the same suit color scheme.

Damn it Fitz, we've talked about this. Blue doesn't automatically mean Fwoosh!

Y'all need to quit teasing me with this re-color mock ups. I keep being excited by them and then disappointed that they aren't real.

So - I've limited myself to Jolly Santa, Robot Santa and deluxe Krampus... I think that gives me what I need. But, I'm fairly weak and if they do reveal a different color suit version I may be tempted.

I feel like if the elf figures had a tad more articulation - ball shoulders and hips, elbows and knees - I probably would have grabbed one or two but with the basic 5 poa design I don't need them.

The elves being 5poa just doesn't make sense, and they don't mesh with super-poseable Santa. The Nutcrackers having limited articulation makes sense since nutcrackers aren't traditionally poseable. If the elves had ball shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees, I think they'd be doing a lot better.

I've only ordered classic Santa, but I'll likely order the robot and evil versions as well.

Yup, elves and nutcrackers are am easy pass.
It's the Santas that are tempting me. I realized what's really holding me back on classic Santa. Is the bald alternate head. It looks too much like my Mom's cousin. The one who drank the whole gallon of Q-Anon kool-aid, and ruins family get-togethers (and floods Facebook with) debunked political conspiracies and casual racism. Don't know if I want to be reminded of that every December.
But I did already preorder Jolly Santa.

I've preordered every single item in this line (as well as three of the Classics Santas - one to open, one to display MIB, and one spare).

I agree the minimal articulation on the Elves is disappointing, and my hope is that they either rethink that during the production process or maybe do this again next year with revised Elves, since this one already appears to be fairly successful. That said, I want to support this endeavor as much as possible (with dreams of Easter Bunnies and some sort of generic Halloween-themed line dancing in my head), so I ordered everything anyway - even the artist proof Santa.

For my fellow holiday-toy fans, BBTS also just revealed these:

On a side note, I 100% think the Fwoosh folks should get in touch with FMF and work out a blue variant of some sort. You could call it Father Frost (aka Ded Moroz): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ded_Moroz

If FMF does this again next year, I've got my fingers crossed for Mrs. Claus, some articulated reindeer and a sleigh, and a generic Snowman action figure...

Maybe blue, Fwoosh Santa can be a frozen variant to justify the flue. Maybe translucent and painted blue to look like he's been frozen solid. Give him the alternate zombie head as well, so you can have either a living ice Santa or a dead frozen Santa.

Augh, you all (and my wife) talked me into it! We went with Jolly Santa, Krampus, and Classic with the add-on Accessory Pack.
I like the evil Santa head, but not enough to justify another figure. I think these 4 items will be sufficent.

....unless something else REALLY cool is shown between now and the 31st.

Yay, now there's at least 1 person buying the Jolly Santa. Cause every time I check, it is still at the 000 counter.

I just checked and that's not accurate (or updated), because I certainly have Jolly in my pre-orders, but it still shows 000 on the website. Not worried, it will be backed. And I'd be REALLY bummed if it didn't since that's the figure that sold me on the line.

I’ve gone for robot, zombie, artist proof and a krampus, I’d be up for a blue suit santa if they did one though.
