Tomopop Review: Dooodolls' Third Eye
by Tianxiao Ma

The Dooodolls display at C2E2 was lively thanks to their mascot character drawing a lot of attention. They certainly got my attention, as I hadn't previously heard of the company. The distributor's representative, Lexi Stauring, was kind enough to talk me through the product lineup and even gave me a plush to take home!

Now that I've had a chance to play around with and photograph Third Eye, I'm feeling pretty good about Dooodolls' offerings. Read on for my full impressions.

Tomocast 46: C2E2 & Wondercon
by Pedro Cortes

You know it's the beginning of Summer when the events start to happen every couple of weeks. In short proximity, we had C2E2 and Wondercon occur, so you know that those are the main topic of the latest episode of Tomocast.

Andres Cerrato and Tianxiao Ma join me to discuss both shows, as well as recent SDCC announcements, general news and some of the big toys that caught our eye. As per the usual, you can download Tomocast here, follow us on iTunes or hit the jump to stream the episode and get the show notes. Enjoy!

C2E2 2014: Paisley Fawn

The majority of Paisley Fawn's C2E2 offerings were different varieties of her signature Smudge plushes. If you aren't acquainted with the creature, you need only look in the gallery to learn of the herd of small, pudgy l...

C2E2 2014: Henry Cesneros

Henry Cesneros' work is something I was unfamiliar with pre-C2E2, but after seeing these photos Tian took from his booth, I'd like to see more. Henry's style involves taking all kinds of scrap metal parts — lugnuts, bic...

C2E2 2014: Frombie

Frombie's figures are ostensibly friendly zombies, but I'm not seeing it. I guess their comics do fit the bill. However there's still a friendly quality to these figures that I can get behind. Their wares at C2E2 covered a wi...

C2E2 2014: Dragon Pets

In Game of Thrones, Ser Jorah Friendzone keeps insisting that dragons are not children or pets. Dragon Pets does not subscribe to that, as you can tell with their line of collectibles. These dragons won't rain fire and death ...

C2E2 2014: Dooodolls

All kinds of artists show up to publicize their work at C2E2, but the folks behind Dooodolls went a little bit further by turning one of their plush creations into a big life-sized mascot. Unfortunately, the suit wasn't for s...

C2E2 2014: Jellykoe

Jellykoe's booth at C2E2 served two purposes: to sell quirky plushes to con-goers and to promote their recent Kickstarter campaign, Tox City. To raise awareness for the campaign (which is still in progress), two of the Kickst...

C2E2 2014: Nerfect

The Nerfect booth at C2E2 played host to an army of stuffed creations. Sure, there's the Magic Duckie and the Diabolical Hot Dog, complete with eye patch and holding a knife. Those are pretty fun to check out alongside the st...

C2E2 2014: Nerd City

I'm not sure why bat excrement is commonly associated with craziness, but I suppose it wouldn't do to have a metaphor that made sense. I bring this up because, wow, Nerd City's booth was pretty crazy. They have some fairly no...

C2E2 2014: Little Brass Bird

Little Brass Bird peddles all manner of plush creations. They're based on animals, foods, and even internal organs. This year they're creating an animated web series alongside their newest plush line: Dr. Franklin Meow Meow. ...
