Jacklings from the Cryptocurium

Since my last Jackling post in April, I've had a couple new additions to the gang.
First is the head pumpkin, Lantern Jack.

Someday I'll get the full sized Lantern Jack but for now, this mini version will do. He was very limited, only 31 were made! Here is the story from the card back.

"Lantern Jack is the witch cursed revenant doomed to existence as the pumpkin headed phantom of New Jersey lore. Some say Jack is the benign spirit of All Hallows that returns each autumn to celebrate the season of the Thinned Veil. Others, however, say he is a fearsome wraith bent on vengeance against those who dishonor the old ways of Samhain. Which do you believe?"

 The lore built around these characters just adds to my love of them.

The second addition is a robed Jackling.

The lore on his card reads the same as my other Jackling. I like that the colors are switched up a bit on this guy. The orange robe and white pumpkin look great. I think he'd make a pretty sweet action figure.

Here's my whole gang, waiting for Halloween.

If you want to add a Jackling to your Halloween season you should follow the Order of the Thinned Veil on Facebook and/or The_Cryptocurium on Instagram. When these little guys pop up, they're only available for a limited time.

  1. They all look so great! I wish I had some of them. Love the history too.

    1. If you follow the Crypticurium feeds you'll be able to get the next one :D

  2. They look even better together! I think we talked about this before, but are these little guys going on your bookshelf next to your spooky books?

    1. Nope, they are right in front of my monitor keeping Halloween alive year round.
