This year, animator Alex Kropinak (MARVEL.com's "What The...?!" series) has brought the figures (sculpted by Gabriel Marquez, Rudy Garcia and Jean St. Jean) to life in their first-ever animated short using a combination of stop-motion photography and computer graphics. Behold the horror below as 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 star in TRICK OR TREAT!Universal Monsters31 Days of HalloweenAction FiguresDiamond Select ToysHalloweenToys

Exclusive First-Look: MEGA BLOKS DESPICABLE ME "Tim" in the Wild #MinionMontage
Back on October 10, 2014 there was a knock on the door here at Rock Father HQ - an oddity since most ring the doorbell and subsequently send our dogs into a frenzy. When I looked outside, there was no one to be seen until I happened to look down. There he stood, a small yellow creature in a pair of purple and white flowered shorts. Having seen DESPICABLE ME and it's 2013 sequel, I knew immediately that I was looking at a "Minion." You see, somewhere between Montreal and New York City (where visitors got an unannounced sneak-preview at NYCC, the New York Comic-Con), seven Minions escaped the crew at MEGA BLOKS as preparations were underway to announce a new deal between Mega Brands (part of the Mattel family of companies) and Universal Partnerships & Licensing to bring DESPICABLE ME Construction Sets into stores just in-time for the holiday season. Out of seven minions, "Tim" now lives here with us, while six others are still out there... somewhere, most likely lurking within the confines of some perhaps familiar names in the online world of pop culture. One thing is certain, and that's that Tim is ready for adventure, and the #MinionMontage has begun.
