It's never too early to begin thinking about Christmas...right? Well, Funko agrees with me. They are showing off photos of their upcoming Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Pop! Series.

Last year, Roberto "RX" Gionta, an Italian designer and web cartoonist, produced a resin Toy named "Mr Death". This year, he has decided to try to produce himself as a mini figure. (Everyone should be immortalized in resin, no?)
The series is named "Me and Mr Death". The series will be limited to only 25 sets, with the final figures being painted and packaged.
Straight out of the South Bronx, Kidrobot’s first series of All City Breakers celebrates the best dance style born from 70’s hip-hop culture. Individually foil-wrapped and blind, each b-boy and b-girl’s punctuated move is captured perfectly in plastic – a stylized freeze. Injection-molded and inspired by the retro but classic green army men and their solid plastic bases, these breakers flaunt moves from Power to Flex in four neon colors: pink, green orange and blue. Each 2" tall piece is paired with a boombox to deliver the beat. These are scheduled to be released on September 15th 2011 for $1.95 each.
Monster Worship has unveiled the newest limited edition painted colorway of the Real Fighting Greasebat vinyl. This one has been cast in an orange vinyl, highlighted with Green sprays, and has metallic silver horns and silver accent sprays.
These will only be available at the Toy Karma III show, which opens at Rotofugi Gallery on Saturday September 10th 2011. Monster Worship will not be offering any of these for sale publicly...so get to the show opening to pick one up.
Well, it appears that END and Argonaut Resins will be teaming up with artist Robbie Busch again for another round of El Diablo resin figures. This time around, it will be an all new figure - a mini El Diablo. As you can see from the sculpt teasers, this 3.5" tall figure will have a slightly different look to him (not simply a shrunken down version of the first figure). Eric has stated that he's hoping to have these a go by New York Comic Con 2011.
Bitbots Toys has announced that their 6" tall DIY Jinny (full white version) is available for pre-order. This version is a limited edition run of 500 pieces worldwide.

Check out the above video of Todd McFarlane and author Robert Kirkman getting a hands-on look at the upcoming action figure line based on The Walking Dead comic book series. Being an avid series reader, I know that I am looking forward to these figures to drop (at least the two characters - Rick Grimes and Michonne). How about you?
