Due to scheduling difficulties, I wasn't able to get a question post up. My deepest apologies, dearest Tomocast listeners. To make up for it, I brought on a trio of guests that will surely entertain you. To...
64Colors have revealed a new piece they're working on, a custom Gumdrop based on The Grinch's pooch, Max. That includes the one little antler tied to his head, which 64Colors have replicated and affixed to the top of the cust...

Hello and welcome back to another week of Tomopop LinkUP! In one week from today we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving here in America and I for one am looking forward to getting stuffed on some turkey! Even though it's a popular vacation week you can look forward to LinkUP returning once again! News doesn't stop and neither do we.
Back to this week we've got a bunch of new prototypes, some designer figures, and some amazing photo galleries and videos!
After being revealed at Superfestival 63, The Disarticulators' Oozeball is getting a release this week. Inspired by the Madballs from the 1980s, the Oozeballs are sculpted by Zectron and are designed to have a little more modern, detailed, and designer-collectible style than the kid-friendly Madballs did. These initial Oozeballs are not squishable, however; apparently, there are still a few things to work out with the soft rubber versions, so these are made with a harder urethane rubber and don't ooze when squeezed.
The Oozeball release happens Friday at 9 p.m. GMT (4 p.m. Eastern, 1 p.m. Pacific) on the Man-E-Toys store. Prices are:
Open run Bootleg Neon and OG Green editions: US$25
Midnight Black edition, limited to 10 pieces: US$25
Custom-colored pieces: US$30
Custom piece with a Deathball as a set: US$30
Plus a bunch of custom-painted, one-off pieces in case none of those options appeal to you
It’s no secret that Daryl is one of the most popular character on The Walking Dead. So of course figures of him are always in high demand. So logically companies will make more figures!
Shown in the November edition of the PREVIEWS catalog is an exclusive Funko Daryl Pop! figure. From the concept art it looks like this Daryl comes from Season 3. He has longer hair, a motorcycle jacket, knife and crossbow. There will also be a blood splattered version of this figure.
Featured on page 477 of the PREVIEWS catalog, these figures can be pre-ordered now at your local comic book store. This exclusive Funko The Walking Dead Daryl Pop! figure will be in stores in March.
Kidrobot has a new collection of items coming out, in collaboration with (RED) and the Keith Haring Studio, to mark World AIDS Day 2013. The (RED) Collection merchandise will have 5 percent of its sales go toward fighting AIDS in Africa and around the world ... which honestly seems a little bit on the low end, but maybe that's just me. Maybe it'll be a bit clearer when we know what the prices for these items are, something that hasn't been revealed yet.
Regardless, two of the items are 3-inch red-colored and 7-inch white-colored Kidrobot figures, which might actually be the biggest news. Why? Because they've got new, more Munny/Dunny-styled bodies, apparently.
There are also a few accessories in the form of a beanie, keychain and hat, all of which will be available when the Kidrobot (RED) collection arrives Nov. 30.
The fine folks at Rivet have themselves a little exclusive figure that's going on sale this week. That would be the clear purple colorway of Alex Pardee's Bunnywith Affinity For Slave Women piece, which mashes up Bunny and Jabba the Hutt. It's not a very large figure, at only about 4 inches long, but it's also not too expensive at only US$12.
Only 100 of these will be available from Rivet, both in-store (1200 N. High St., Columbus, Ohio) and at Rivet's online shop starting on Thursday at noon Eastern (5 p.m. GMT, 9 a.m. Pacific).
At DesignerCon, Hyperactive Monkey unleashed a new jade version of the Pocket Master figure. It's not made of actual jade, but resin, though it could look the part. It was also their event exclusive, but not the only thing at...
Hello and welcome, Tomopeeps, to the first ever Tomopop LinkUP! A lot of news comes out in any given week and there just isn't enough time in a day to get it out. It's not bad news, in fact it's quite good news, but when you deal with a few hundred tips in a week like we do, some stuff is just bound to fall to the wayside.
Our solution is Tomopop LinkUP; taking the best of what's been left behind and rounding it all up into one big report. Unlike the daily news you see around here, LinkUP consists of a series of short blurbs and teaser images with links you can follow for more information. If the rest of the site is the main course, then consider this the dessert.
And speaking of dessert, this week we'll be talking about Japan's incredible holiday cakes, designer toys, robots, anime stuff, and even a few videos!
Jeremiah Ketner, Jason Limon and N.C. Winters shared a DesignerCon booth once more, each bringing their original works to the show. For Jeremiah, that

A lot of artists had shared booths at DesignerCon, like they do at larger conventions, but Scott Tolleson might have taken the cake in this regard. Not only was he manning a booth this year, but Leecifer, Lana Crooks and Carson Catlin were all along for the ride, metaphorically speaking.
As such, it made a good spot for Scott and Lana to show off their Plush Deadbeet, which looks pretty cute. More so, in fact, than Scott's vinyl ones. Carson also brought along a ton of his reticulated customs, while Leecifer had an army of Pickle Babies on hand. Check out the gallery for photos from the booth!
Kuso Vinyl came to DesignerCon this year with a few new colorways of past releases, but they weren't the stars of the booth. Sure, there's the Bambooshoot Minifah and Neon Genetic Minicel (guess where that one's inspiration c...
