Funko introduces their new DIY Pop! figures photo
Funko introduces their new DIY Pop! figures
by Vanessa Cubillo

Funko has a pretty simple formula for making their Pop! figures. They are able to take dozens of characters based on movie, TV, and video game characters, apply it to their formulaic toy design, and come out with cute figures. Alright, sometimes they don’t work out, but for the most part they do.

So now they’re taking their standard design and giving it to the fans. Funko will be releasing Do-it-yourself Pop! figures so you can make every character you’ve been wishing for. Finally I can have a Sailor Moon Pop!

These will be available in a male or female body type, and your first chance to get them will be at Emerald City Comicon. Also at their booth will be exclusive Emerald Green versions of these DIY figures. They will be limited to 300, and only 100 will be available each day.

So if you’ll be at Emerald City Comicon this weekend you can be the first one to get one of these at Funko’s booth #117. For the rest of us, we’ll have to wait until these DIY Pop! figures come out in May.

Tomopop LinkUP: Gold Medal Panic
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to Tomopop LinkUP! It's been a pretty busy week in all sorts of ways. We're still plowing our way through Wonder Festival coverage with the shadow of Toy Fair looming over us. But outside of that the Olympics are in full swing once again and Valentine's Day is tomorrow, probably the two best events for precious metals. Man, why is the shortest month of the year also the busiest?

This week we've got more galleries, customs, LEGO pieces, and plushies. Follow me after the jump to see it all! Incidentally, I've tried to watch Full Metal Panic twice and still haven't finished the first season...
