It looks to me like they are doing the 1996 US Edition. Though, it could be Murder at Boddy Mansion.
Pretty sure it’s ‘96.

I highly doubt that Hasbro would use the MABM gang anything soon (sadly).

The 1986 version was the first one I ever bought, but I got it used at a garage sale and it was incomplete so we couldn't play it. Years later I got a new copy of the 1992 version which became my standard to measure all other versions of the game by, partially because the children's book series also used this same artwork for most of the books. I started with book 5, which I believe was the first book to use the 1992 artwork while the previous books had used the 1986 artwork. So seeing that the Funko Pops are likely using the 1996 artwork as reference, I'm a little sad because the 1992 art is where my Clue nostalgia is rooted, and the 1986 artwork was my first exposure to the game.

Still, I do like the design of the characters in the 1996 version, so I wouldn't say it's that big of a deal. Plus the Clue card of Mr. Green from this version looks just like one of my uncles (although his illustration on the cover of the box doesn't, oddly enough) which is a fun coincidence.

Pre-order is windowed December 2020-January 2021.

Was hoping for something more specific sometime soon since the Transformers funko line (which was announced with Retro Games, Hasbro, and Clue) just got an official date this past weekend.

Maybe we'll get some news after New York Comic-Con (Oct 8-11).

The fact that Peacock and Mustard haven't been leaked yet gives a pretty strong indication they are going to be funkoshop.com exclusives or at one random specific retailer (hot topic, boxlunch, walmart, target, etc)

Given Hasbro has some exclusives at Target, I bet that’s were they’re gonna be.

That's very possible. I think one will be Target and one will be funkoshop.com.

Not too bad at the end of the day. Should be pretty easy for those of us who want it. I've struggled helping my bf collect Walking Dead and Game of Thrones rare ones, trust me it's a bitch

To each his own, but I’ve never understood the appeal of these things. My roommate has a ***** ton of them, including a towering pyramid of boxes containing every figure released for the last film version of “It”. Eyesore.

So of course I’ve gone ahead & preordered the 4 I could :lol:
Because I am a ***** for Clue merchandise (be it even a comic book, YA novel, or Funko POP! figure). :lol:

Colonel Mustard will get his release soon. Funko always officially reveals the in-store exclusives with the commons.

Mrs. Peacock is a Hot-Topic exclusive.

Plum, Scarlet, Green, White are commons.

Still nothing on Col. Mustard yet.

NOTE: These are still just digital mock-ups. There MAY be backdrops in the box. Some people have commented and suggested rooms or colors. I'll be happy either way. I just want to know what's going on with Mustard.

The current assumption is that he is going to be revealed at a convention.

Peacock is a hot-topic exclusive, so if Mustard was Target he would have been revealed at the same time... unless for some reason Target is planning a late LATE release.
