Oh...nothing like turning the undead and the folks from AMC's The Walking Dead into cute little collectibles. Vinyl Sugar has announced the Dorbz: The Walking Dead series, featuring Rick, Daryl, Michonne, and a creepy Walker with a screwdriver in its eye socket.

I remember the old days when G. I. Joe guys came in 3 3/4 inch scale...and that was it. Well, Funko has released their take on the iconic characters using their Pop! platform. The Pop! Animation: G.I. Joe series will add a quartet of new faces: Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander, and Roadblock. Look for them to hit store shelves sometime this month.
I'm a fan of Quentin Tarantino films. So when I heard about him doing another western - The Hateful Eight - and it being cancelled because of a script leak, and then it being back on again...I was all over the map. Luckily, the movie is slated for a Christmas Day 2015 opening, and Funko has announced one of the first toy series based on the film - the Pop! Movies: The Hateful Eight. Slated to be released in February 2016, the series includes Major Marquis Warren, Sheriff Chris Mannix, John "The Hangman" Ruth, and Daisy Domergue.
If you've ever been to a midnight movie showing (I'm hoping they still do that), then it's likely you'll be interested in Funko's Rocky Horror Picture Show ReAction Series. Just in time for the film’s 40th anniversary, you'll be able to get your hands on Riff Raff, Dr. Frank-n-furter, Magenta, Brad Majors, Columbia, and Janet Weiss. Look for these to be available beginning in December 2015.
Vinyl Sugar has announced a new Vinyl Idolz figure. This one is from one of the most classic of 1980's Christmas films - Christmas Vacation.

Unfortunately, Clark Griswold won't be available to purchase for your Christmas holiday...he'll go on sale beginning in January 2016.
