Our pal Bubblegumfink is hanging up his blogging..., um, whatever. We'll miss your stuff, Fink! And let me know if you ever start up again.


McFarlane Toys will produce an action figure line based on the "Grinch Who Stole Christmas" 'toon, IVC2 reports.

McFarlane Toys is planning a range of three- and six-inch scale action figures based on key scenes from the film, including Two Sizes Too Small (the Grinch standing with hands on hips), You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch (the Grinch stealing the children's stockings from the mantle of a Whoville fireplace), All I Need is a Reindeer (the Grinch placing antlers on his dog), Cindy Lou Who (everybody's favorite Who), and Mount Crumpet Box Set (the Grinch and Max with overburdened sleigh). The figures will include play action features and are scheduled to be in stores in October.
