If you're a pop-culture fanatic, you've no doubt seen Vinyl Idolz figures lining the shelves of your local comic-book shop or toy store. Distributed by Funko, the action-figure line has lent its whimsical treatment to a wide variety of characters from comics, film, and television, from Batgirl to Marty McFly to Clark Griswold from "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation".
Like many great things involving pop culture, Vinyl Idolz was the brainchild of a fan. The creator goes by the name of Kibooki, and his most recent creation is sure to set the internet abuzz: the cast of "Stranger Things." It should be noted that these figures aren't officially licensed. For now, they're just another piece of remarkable fan-made art.

As you can see in the above tweet, many of the primary characters have been miniaturized, then given oversized heads. That applies tenfold (make that fourfold) to the Demogorgon, who still manages to be creepy even in a more cartoonish form. But our favorite has to be a bloody-nosed Eleven, who looks pissed and ready to send a bully flying off a cliff (or just peeing his pants) with her powers.
No word yet whether these "Stranger Things" figures will ever get licensed and be available for purchase. For now though, they sure are fun to look at.
