Funko's Disney Villains Cupcake Keepsakes

Funko's Cupcake Keepsakes Evil Queen stands just three inches tall. (Not big enough to actually store a cupcake, even a mini one!) Use her to store your favorite piece of Disney Villains jewelry.

They also offer a Maleficent Cupcake Keepsake, which I don't think is a tie-in to the new movie.

New Buffy the Vampire Slayer Vinyl Collectibles from Funko

Coming soon from Funko: the long awaited Buffy the Vampire Slayer themed TV show collectible vinyl dolls (erm, I am supposed to call them "figures.")

The Willow figure wears a tight blue shirt and polka dot shorts.

Now you can own your own personal, adorable little Spike. (What you do with him in the privacy of your own home is your business!)

Here's Funko's take on Daniel "Oz" Osbourne. They've depicted him as a human, not a werewolf.

"Can't even shout. Can't even cry. The Gentlemen are coming by. Looking in windows, knocking on doors... They need to take seven and they might take yours... Can't call to mom. Can't say a word. You're gonna die screaming but you won't be heard."

"The Gentlemen" are a group of demons. Creepy looking!

We mustn't forget about Angel!

And here's Buffy Summers, the Slayer herself.

These are pre-orders that won't ship for a month or two. The waiting will be agony, amiright?

See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil Figurines

See no evil, speak no evil.. taste no evil? Here's a set of three vampire figurines for your goth or vampiric home decor theme.

If that's not enough of a conversation starter for you, here's a set of zombie figures instead. I love the look on the zombie on the far right's face!

Here's a set of three skeleton figurines too. At this point you could totally fill your entire fireplace mantel!

These witch figurines aren't very spooky, but they might be nice around Halloween.

Tempting and Dark Maleficent Collector Dolls

Minding my own business yesterday at Toys R Us, trying to buy a radio-controlled helicopter for my nephew, I found myself accidentally wandering into the collector dolls aisle. Oops! That could get dangerous. I paused to view the new Maleficent Dark Beauty doll which does bear a remarkable resemblance to Angelina Jolie. She's also available on eBay.

Here is the Dark Beauty Maleficent doll in her collector box.

Here's the Royal Coronation Maleficent - love her horns and cape! She's also available on eBay.
