Funko Holidaze Pop! - Stu Macher

We'll soon be getting to a variety of Holidaze Pop! Characters, but I'm continuing the Scream Collection with another personal favorite from the Horror Genre - Stu Macher.  Yes, Billy Loomis may have been the brains behind the Woodsboro murders, but he couldn't have done it without a little help from his friend.  If not for Stu Macher, Billy would have likely been caught much sooner and we, the viewers, would have never been so swerved when Ghostface sliced and diced Billy with corn syrup.  It was the master plan that almost worked.  To perfectly counter Billy's psychotic rage, Stu brought a bit of humor to the duo.  He's always been my favorite "funny" character from any Horror movie and it's only right that he be featured on The Holidaze in Pop! form.

Matthew Lillard did an amazing job playing Stu Macher.  He did it so well that it's hard to believe the same guy also played Shaggy from Scooby-Doo.  Being such a big Scream fan, I've memorized many of the lines and it's safe to say Stu has the most entertaining set of phrases.  "Liver alone."

Just as I did with Billy's, I had to design Stu in his bloody attire as well.  Since they did it to each other in a game of who can out-do whom, it's only right that they're both decked out in blood!

There are only a handful of true Horror legends.  You have the obvious ones like the Universal Monsters, Freddy, Michael, Jason and Leatherface.  A few other debatable characters, but in my opinion, Billy and Stu should be in the discussion.  Sure, Ghostface is iconic, but the men behind the masks are the true legends and helped make Scream what it is.  Without those characters, along with the others featured in my collection, we would have never gotten 4 amazing films.  Give it up for the Tag Team Champions of fictional murder.
