Why don't you take a moment to meet the Freakies yourself! Oh, happy day!
Each of the seven unique sculpts was only available in one color. The colors ranged from several shades of green, to pink, orange, blue, and purple. For cereal premiums, they are very nicely detailed. They are made of hard plastic. Take a look!
