Silent Hill's last authority section is quickly approaching its 10th anniversary, with Downpour releasing back in mid 2012. While Konami still hasn't created a development since P.T. was dropped, fans of the series are still committed to the franchise.
While most would likely very much want to see another game breathe new life into the Silent Hill series, the franchise hasn't been totally neglected. New merchandise celebrating some of the most iconic figures and monsters of Silent Hill have arisen, and presently Silent Hill 3's Robbie the Rabbit is joining them.
Great Smile's Nendoroid line is a part of posable action figures that normally accompanied an assortment of accessories and faceplates.

Robbie will come in two unique colors, pink and blue, with various accessories for each. The pink Robbie includes a line and chainsaw, while the blue comes with a board and round saw.
Great Smile shared a series of images of both Robbie the Rabbits. Their paint work gives them a slightly fluffy look, reminiscent of hide. They accompany additional parts so that the two can sit down, stand, hold their weapons, and various faceplates let fans either make them look ordinary or ridiculous.

For the time being, series fans will just need to delay until Konami returns to that spot; Silent Hill.
