Cuphead is one of the few video games as a PlayStation 4 owner I’m blown I haven’t gotten to play. There’s not a lot of Xbox games, I have to play, but Cuphead is definitely on the short list. But now, I can experience a little of the Cuphead action as McFarlane Toys is building some excitement with Cuphead Construction Sets starting in fall 2019.
Cuphead™ is a classic run-and-gun action game heavily focused on boss battles and inspired by cartoons of the 1930s. Traversing vibrant worlds brought to life by traditional hand-drawn cel animation, players guide Cuphead or his pal Mugman on their perilous journey to pay back their debt to the devil. Along the way, they’ll acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves and discover hidden secrets.
To date, Cuphead™ has sold over two million copies worldwide, and is celebrated by fans for its arcade-action gameplay, signature art style, and award-winning soundtrack featuring almost three hours of original jazz, early big band, and ragtime music. The game has won over 20 major awards, including Xbox One’s Game of the Year and Special Achievement in Animation at the 45th Annual Annie Awards.

McFarlane Toys will stay true to the incredible detail of Cuphead’s™ hand-drawn 1930s art style. Each Construction Set will focus on Cuphead, Mugman and the game’s iconic bosses, incorporating memorable scenes from all across Inkwell Isle, where the game takes place. The Construction Sets will range from around 100 to 300 pieces.
Toys R Us was a faithful partner for McFarlane Toys so I’m curious how easy these sets will be outside of places like FYE and possibly Target. Hopefully everyone who’s interested will be able to track these sets down without too much trouble.
Collectors won’t have to wait until next year to get a glimpse of the Cuphead Construction Sets. They’ll be on display at San Diego Comic Con from July 18-22 in the Diamond Comics booth #2401.
