Universal Monsters Action Figures Stop Motion Animated Short Film

Diamond Select Toys sent us over their First ever Universal Monsters Action Figures Stop Motion Animated Short Film title "Trick or Treat".
"Trick or Treat" was animated by Alex Kropinak, the animator behind's "What The...?!" Using a combination of stop-motion photography and computer graphics, Kropinak brought to life the actual action figures, sculpted by Gabriel Marquez, Rudy Garcia and Jean St. Jean. The film's cast includes the Mummy, the Wolfman, Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein's Monster, the Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula and the Metaluna Mutant.

Kropinak even included a cameo appearance by Diamond Select's first-ever  original concept action figure, Van Helsing. Designed by DST President Chuck Terceira and sculptor Jean St. Jean, the famous monster hunter received his own 7-inch scale figure this year, which was released at the same time as the newest Universal Monsters assortment. The film was co-written by Kropinak and DST Marketing Supervisor Zach Oat, who previously collaborated on ToyFare magazine's Twisted ToyFare Theatre.

NFL Teenymates Series 2 Mini Figures

From Party Animal Toys is NFL Teenymates Series 2 Mini Figure. These are blind packed figures so you have to keep buying to collect all 32 teams plus 6 new rare figures. Each pack comes with 2 running backs, 2 puzzle pieces and a checklist. When you collect at 35 pieces of the puzzles there are 2 different sides. Side A is the Collector Mini Poster and on Side B is the Football Field Playset. The puzzle size when all the pieces are put together is 5"x7".

Despicable Me Minion Surprise Mini Figures

Thinkway Toys x Despicable Me Minion Surprise figures. These are blind bagged as well. Just like the Despicable Me 2 Minion Surprise figures that we talked about here back in 2013. Seems like stores received these not too long ago. At first they look to be the same but if you look closely it was missing the 2 and the back of the packaging showed different figures. It can be a bit confusing seeing as how these were released fairly recently after the Despicable Me 2 Minion Surprise figures. Retail on these are $2.99 each.
