Tomopop LinkUP: Walking in a winter Wonder Festival photo
Tomopop LinkUP: Walking in a winter Wonder Festival
by Jeremy Emerje Crocker

Hello and welcome back to an action packed Tomopop LinkUP. Packed is definitely the right word for this edition as we're looking at probably our biggest LinkUP yet! And no wonder, it's the winter convention season! UK Toy Fair was last week though it was kind of a meh event. In just over a week we've got the first Wonder Festival of the year on February 9 followed by New York Toy Fair launching the following weekend on Feb 16 to 19. I'm sure there's like a dozen more before spring.

And thanks to all of these big toy shows there has been an email tidal wave in our inbox, far more than we've been able to post and there's still more coming in every day. And this is just the stuff leftover from last week! Crazy stuff and there's still tons more coming in every day. It isn't all stuff being prepared for the big events; we've also got some great custom and designer stuff that I'm actually a little sad we haven't had time to post because it's so good! See it all after the jump!

New Disney Vinylmation for 2014 are previewed photo
New Disney Vinylmation for 2014 are previewed
by Natalie Kipper

2014 marks the fifth anniversary of Vinylmation and Disney is celebrating the occasion with quite a few announcements. Earlier this week, the Disney Parks Blog posted a preview of several new Vinylmation series coming to the Parks. One of the series, Cutesters Series 6: Snow Day, was announced last month along with a corresponding Disney World artist signing event. This set will be available starting on January 17. Also releasing in January (January 10, to be exact), is the new Indiana Jones line of Vinylmation. Designed by Thomas Scott, these figures will based on the first Indy film, Raiders of the Lost Ark. The combo pack figure in the set, to be released on January 24, was designed by Maria Clapsis.

This year Disney is trying out a new concept for the brand called "Eachz," meaning that one figure in a line will be more common to find than another. This idea will first be put into action with release of limited edition Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Buzz Lightyear figures, exclusive to the Disney Trading Night events at Disneyland and Walt Disney World (keep checking here for announcements). Check out the gallery to see both the common are rare versions of these Vinylmation.

The "Eachz" concept also comes into play with the March release of Easter-themed Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Vinylmation. The two figure possibilities are a black-and-white and full-color version of the same adorable design. June brings the third wave of the popular Park Starz line. You can learn more about this series here and here. The teaser images for this line's next wave show figures of Dreamfinder (previously of EPCOT's Journey into the Imagination) and Sonny Eclipse (from his restaurant in the Magic Kingdom). Fans of Duffy the Disney Bear (myself included) will be excited about the release of a limited edition mystery series painting the lovable bear in different designs. This line will be released in July. The final photo was of the limited edition Cranium Command set, part of the Vinylmation Park series. No release date for this one, unfortunately.

This certainly is a lot for collectors to take in. Are there any of these upcoming releases that you are particularly excited about?
