Just the other day we reviewed Rudolph of the Funko Vinyl Pop figures and today we check in with Kris Kringle himself. If you’ve been good this year, ol’ Saint Nick is likely on his way to you later tonight.
And if you’ve been bad… Well maybe you can just buy this Funko vinyl and hope for a better result next year!
It’s Christmas time once again. Here at Infinite Hollywood, we love Christmas. So today I’m taking a look at some of the holiday Pop vinyls from Funko. These came out last year, but I only managed to review the Bumble last year, so this year I wanted to get the rest of the crew. They made quite a few different Christmas vinyls based on the old Rankin-Bass animated movies, but they only made 3 Rudolph characters. Rudolph, Santa Claus and the Bumble.
Of course this year, they’ve added Yukon Cornelius, Hermie and the Misfit Elephant to the mix. Maybe we’ll review those next year! Anyway, here’s Rudolph himself! Just in time to lead Santa through a foggy Christmas Eve.
Unfortunately I’ve been dragging my feet on updating about Infinite Toys For Tots, but since it’s almost Christmas I figure I had best update. I know a lot of you have been emailing me or sending me messages with donations, but haven’t seen the counter move. I’ve just been very swamped with other stuff to update the counter.
The good news is, I finally got her updated! Even better news is that we’ve reached 25 donations and I’ve matched them to make it a total of 50 donations! Most stores took up their Toys For Tots bins this weekend, so if you’re still looking to donate, make sure to visit their website: Toys For Tots Locations to find out if there’s anywhere around you that you can still donate.
Don’t forget you can do an online donation as well (several people have) and we’ll match you with one in return!
And for the sake of keeping things on the level, here’s a few photos of me out matching some donations. I didn’t take a photo for each one but I wanted to let you guys know that we’ve done some great work this year. I don’t know if we’ll reach our unofficial goal of 30 donations by Christmas, but we’ve come darn close and I must say some of the stuff folks have donated this year has been really great.
We also did our annual Angel Tree donations. I’ve mentioned this each year, but if you don’t know about the Angel Tree program, the basis is that you choose a needy kid (or a family) and buy them gifts. You don’t know anything about the person, other than their age, sex and a few of their wants. This year we upped ourselves to a family of three kids. Personally I like to do the younger kids, but our kids were a bit older this year. Older kids deserve a good Christmas too, though.

It’s the curvaceous Jessica Rabbit, with sculpted on curves. Hey we know you can’t have a Jessica without curves! Along with her is the formidable, Judge Doom. I haven’t watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit in years, but between my love of Bob Hoskins and all the great things in that movie, I think it may be time to bust it out and watch again. Jeff’s customs have definitely got me wanting to take a trip back into Toon Town.
Of course, this set is not complete without Roger himself. Jeff did some other great Minimates back in October and we highlighted his work then as well. But now he’s really outdone himself.
He’s got the whole Roger Rabbit crew in tow. Heck he even found a nice in scale Benny to join in on the fun! I’m always amazed at how people are able to take the Minimate medium and create so many wonderful characters. This is really unique.
As always, if you know someone who’s made a great custom or have something neat you’d like to share, email me and maybe it’ll get featured here on Custom Creations Corner!
