Hello friends, and welcome again, in this new blog about the Funko Pop Bendy and the Ink Machine. As we always do, we will talk about the Bendy and the Ink Machine game and then about each character that the Funko Pop Bendy and the Ink Machine represent. So then, let’s start with the blog:
About the game Bendy and the Ink Machine:
Bendy and the Ink Machine is a survival horror video game. This game was developed and published by Kindly Beast, under the fictitious name of the name of the game’s animation company (Joey Drew Studios Inc.). The game takes place in 1966 and follows the story of Henry. Henry is a retired animator who returns to his former studio where he worked for an invitation from his friend Joey Drew. The more advanced in the game Henry discovers a nightmare of cartoon characters apparently created by the owner Ink Machine. The game Bendy and the Ink Machine is composed of 5 chapters. Then we will name each chapter and a description of each one (spoiler alert from here)
Chapter One: Moving Pictures
In 1966, Henry, a retired animator, returns to his former animation studio, Joey Drew Studios, after receiving an invitation from his old friend and former employer, Joey Drew, to show him something important. Having not been in the studio for thirty years, Henry finds the place apparently abandoned. During his stay at the animation studio Henry discovers clues from old recordings by studio staff that imply that Joey was participating in strange occult practices. Our protagonist is also suddenly attacked and pushed by Bendy, a monstrous cartoon demon and the most popular character in the studio. Henry manages to flee from Bendy but the studio begins to flood abruptly with ink and just before reaching the exit door, the floor collapses beneath him, trapping him in an underground room.
Chapter Two: The Old Song:
After awakening after his visions, Henry takes the ax again and enters the studio’s music department, determined to find another way out. There, Henry investigates more thoroughly about the events that occurred in the study. While searching for a way out, walk through an ink-filled corridor. In this hallway, he sees a mysterious figure wearing a Bendy cartoon, to whom he asks for help, but mysteriously disappears, leaving only Bendy’s cardboard. Several recordings that Henry finds explain more about how the studio fared since his departure, including one by Sammy Lawrence, the studio’s musical director, who apparently began to worship Bendy as a deity. He also finds other recordings of Norman Polk, the studio projectionist, mentioning how Sammy constantly interrupted the daily recording sessions to go worshiping Bendy in an improvised sanctuary he had created. After flooding the staircase to escape the studio Henry is suddenly attacked from behind and knocked out by the same person he saw before. Upon awakening, he discovers that his attacker is Sammy, who became an ink creature and wears a Bendy mask on his face. Sammy takes the ax from Henry while briefly commenting that it seems familiar, and reveals his adoration to Bendy, thinking that the diabolical cartoon will be able to return him to his human form. With the intention of using Henry as a human sacrifice, the ritual fails when Bendy shows up and kills Sammy instead. Henry escapes from his bonds and then breaks his ax after smashing wooden boards to escape. In this part, Bendy finds Henry being forced to flee from him while chasing him. After successfully escaping, Henry hears a strange noise that catches his attention, and is surprised to find Boris alive.
Chapter Three: Rise and Fall :
After escaping from Bendy, Henry meets Boris in a strange room. Henry decides to explore the place to find food cans and make a bacon soup for Boris. Boris gives Henry a lever to open the door and decides to leave with him. Both explore the studio and reach a dark alley, where they use a flashlight to light the way. After Boris goes through a conduit to unlock a locked door, Henry breaks away from him and enters the studio’s toy factory. In the Heavenly Toys Henry arrives at a small room that darkens suddenly and is frightened by a disfigured image of Alice Angel. She asks him if he is worthy to “walk with angels”.
From now on, we will only explain what the phrase “walking with angels” means because explaining the two paths would be a serious spoiler in the game’s plot.
The crossroads of the roads in Bendy and the Ink Machine:
After meeting Alice Angel, there are two paths Henry can take: the way of the angel or the way of the devil. Only one path can be chosen, while the other is permanently closed. Although each path has no relation to the rest of the chapter, the audio recordings that Henry finds in each one offer a different view of more events in the studio. After completing one of the previous paths, Henry reunites with Boris after working together and fighting more cartoons, both go down an elevator and arrive at Alice Angel’s lair. In that place Henry discovers that she has been sacrificing other cartoons to improve her deformed appearance. Thinking that he can be helpful in helping her, Alice offers Henry his freedom in exchange for some tasks, which involve collecting some materials. Henry accepts, while collecting the necessary materials she explains what happened to her and the other employees of the studio, while evading Bendy, the Seekers, monstrous versions of the Carnivorous Gang and the Projectionist, a disfigured version of Norman Polk that now has become an ink monster. After completing each task, Alice Angel allows Henry to climb the elevator to escape, but realizing that he was accompanied by Boris, Alice Angel makes the elevator plummet while revealing his true intentions, which are to sacrifice Boris to be “beautiful” again. Once the elevator is destroyed by the fall, Boris wakes up unscathed and tries to revive Henry, while Alice Angel walks slowly towards him and drags him into the darkness. Also, one of the two scenes after the credits is shown according to the path Henry took.
Chapter Four: Colossal Wonders:
After his violent fall, Henry wakes up and undertakes a journey in the “S” level to save Boris from death. Exploring the site, Henry arrives at the Grant Cohen funding office. There, Henry hears a recording of an unknown person where he is heard being attacked. After opening a door Henry enters a room with a statue of Bendy surrounded by strange figures of ink. Deeper, Henry discovers that he is in the studio library, and finds a tape of Susie Campbell, where he is heard talking about how he tried to recover the work of his dreams. When moving some books to open a door, Henry experiences strange hallucinations, which eventually disappear. After further investigation, he discovers that the figures surrounding the Bendy were gone. After fixing a cable car and arriving on the other side, Henry crosses a long corridor and suffers another rare hallucination, in which thousands of hands leave the walls to grab him, at the end of the hallucination Henry hears the voice of Alice Angel, who he says that Boris is having a good stay, and when he arrives in another room, he is surprised by the same figures he saw before, who are known as “Los Perdidos”, and who seem to be somewhat sad to be trapped. They make their way to a ventilation duct, where Henry uses a flashlight to light his way. After going through the conduit and being scared by Bendy arrives at the warehouse of “Bendy Hell”.
Henry in the Bendy Hell Park
There he listens to several recordings of the studio employees. One from the concierge Wally Franks, in which he mentions how he often repaired the park’s attractions. Another by Joey Drew, in which he says that believing is a simple façade that only serves to achieve one’s dreams, and another by Laice Benton, a restorative like Wally and Thomas, who was in charge of maintaining the mechanics of the park’s attractions. In his film he mentions a Bertrum project in which he worked for 40 days, an animatronic with the shape of Bendy, which he called “The mechanical demon”. After activating the attraction of the haunted house to get to where Alice Angel was hiding, Henry listens to his voice asking him what his purposes are in the studio, and at the same time mentioning what happened between the cartoons previously. After arriving at the end of his walk in a room full of materials, Henry is scared and attacked by Boris, who has been transformed into a huge monster by Alice Angel. With no choice but to defend himself, Henry kills the corrupted Boris, who dissolves in ink. Enraged at being frustrated again, Alice Angel runs to Henry in an attempt to kill him herself, but is suddenly stabbed in the heart from behind and falls to the floor. Henry then realizes that he has been saved by the real Alice Angel (who is very involved in being Allison Pendle) and Tom (who is probably the repairman Thomas Connor, turned into Boris’s form because of the ink) , both armed. In a scene after the credits, Alice Angel’s lifeless body is shown on the floor surrounded by the Lost. However, through a weakly heard breath, and a small voice that sounds like a song, it is suggested that she might still be alive.
Chapter Five: The Last Reel
A teaser trailer showing the production of the last chapter was released on June 4, 2018 and the official trailer was released on August 31 of the same year. The fifth chapter of Bendy and the Ink Machine is scheduled to be released on October 26, 2018. Several theories involve the return of Sammy Lawrence and the real reason why Henry was brought into the studio, although nothing has been officially confirmed.
Well now that this part of the blog was long,
Let’s talk now about Funko Pop Bendy and the Ink Machine and its characters.
The first of the Funko Pop Bendy and the Ink Machine is the same Bendy known as the ink demon, is the main antagonist of the game. Appearing as a long and almost skeletal monster of ink that vaguely resembles his animated counterpart, his origins are unknown, but other cartoons fear him as much as his presence. Throughout the game, Bendy appears in different ways. In the first, it only scares Henry when he repairs the ink machine. The second, chasing Henry after “killing” Sammy Lawrence after he invoked him. In the third it appears after Henry destroys several of his cartons. And in the fourth, it’s stranger, scaring Henry in a vent and then saving him from the Projectionist. Beginning in chapter three, Bendy is surrounded by an aura of black ink that harms every creature that crosses her, covering the ink walls as she goes. If he sees Henry, Bendy will relentlessly pursue him unless the player hides. Bendy is the only monster found that can not be killed and causes a death blow if he attacks Henry. By its way of walking and having a hand that seems to be of a man, it is speculated that it is Joey Drew. According to Alice Angel it was Bendy who deformed it after it was played by him, and in the teaser trailer of the fifth chapter Henry mentions Allison Angel that goes after him, since he has something they need. Although it is not known if there are two of him or he will die in the fifth chapter, it has been theorized that he will return to normal. This Funko is about Bendy Doll that, along with the other toys, the Bendy dolls are created by Heavenly Toys’ toy maker, Shawn Flynn.
The Next is one of the most mysterious characters in Bendy and the Ink Machine
The second of the Funko Pops is the Projectionist: it is a monster of humanoid ink with a projector per head, created from the body of Norman Polk. It appears for the first time when Henry is doing a message for Alice Angel. The Projectionist will pursue it instantly if it lights it with the light of its projector. Unlike Bendy and Alice Angel, the Projectionist can be killed during their first encounter. Despite this, he makes another appearance in the fourth chapter, lurking in the ruins of the railway warehouse prototype. Later, Bendy murders him when he tries to attack Henry again. It is not known how he revived.
The Last of the Funko Pop Bendy and the Ink Machine are
Piper, Fisher and Striker disfigured versions of the Carnivorous Gang (Charley, Barley and Edgar, respectively). They appear from the third chapter, attacking Henry every time he approaches, and unlike the Seekers, they are more resistant to damage. Several of his clones were killed by Alice Angel, along with several clones of Boris. Each of them has a different weapon to attack Henry, except Striker, who attacks using his fists.
