The Munsters were one of the more unusual families in American television history, and their family car was just as unusual as they were! While the Munsters fused Transylvania with suburbia, the Munster Koach fused a hearse with a hot rod.
The third set of Universal Monsters Minimates has arrived from Diamond Select Toys featuring The Mummy and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and we've got a look at everything DST put together for these two fine specimens.
The first series of Minimates based on The Walking Dead comic book by Robert Kirkman is scheduled to hit in September, and Diamond Select Toys is already hard at work on the second series, slated for a November release.
Just because someone is dead and walking around doesn't mean that we cannot find practical uses for them. Case in point: this really nifty new bank inspired by The Walking Dead! Check it out and get your change ready!
Aside from all that nasty rigor mortis business, it's fun and easy to play with the dead. Now Diamond Select has made it even easier with Wave One of their Walking Dead Minimates! Check 'em out!
Seriously, man. When something dies, why not play with it? You can make it do anything you want! We should be taking advantage of situations like this!
The first wave of "Munsters" figures was a collector's dream with each one capturing the essence of the character perfectly. In addition to these fantastic representations of Grampa, Herman and Lily, you also got a killer collection of accessories AND a Build-A-Electric Chair!! Now Diamond Select looks to finish off its "Munsters" family portrait with a two-pack of Marilyn and little Eddie!

Ah ... Ariel Chylde. I've spent many, many lonely nights in the quiet confines of Doctor Gash's secret laboratory admiring your…ahem…courage. But we all know Ariel has assets far beyond her courage and the beautiful character will be on display in all her glory in an amazing upcoming figure.
The Wolfman and the Creature have had their day in the sun, and now it's Dracula and Frankenstein's turn!

The US Toy Fair is an insane rush of interviews and images of THOUSANDS of the newest toys hitting our happy shores, most of which we can shoot pictures of so you, at home, can drool to your heart's content and plant printed pictures around the house like a young Ralphie hinting at his lust for a Red Rider BB gun. But some, no matter how much we beg, we cannot photograph, most often due to approvals needed by a licensor.
Nomad has finished sifting through his hundreds of pictures from this year's Toy Fair and just updated his blog with the details about Diamond Select's two new lines of Universal Monsters: Universal Select and Universal Minimates, both of which are starting with figures from Creature from the Black Lagoon.
Art Asylum has released the details on another Ghostbusters Minimates collection, and this one rounds out their Toys R Us Villains Series 3.
