Entertainment Earth's got the pre-orders ready for two of Adventure Time's side characters: TV and Peppermint Butler. The show's character designs lend themselves well to plushies, so it's only natural that Jazwares would go ...

Under the Radar: Jazwares expands Mortal Kombat line

While I'm not how successful Jazwares' Mortal Kombat line has been, the fact that they're still making it must mean something. Many had high hopes when the line was first announced which were subsequently dashed repeatedly (a...


Jazwares' third SDCC exclusive bares all  photo
Jazwares' third SDCC exclusive bares all
by Natalie Kipper

Okay, maybe he doesn't "bare all" but Jazwares' Comic Con-exclusive Adventure Time Finn in PJs plush does have the ability to hang a B.A., thanks to a removable flap on his PJs' bottom. A super-nifty feature of this particular plush (besides the mooning action) is the placement of the SDCC logo on Finn's pillow. I think it makes the plush more special as not much merchandise has the logo emblazoned on the actual toy. I'm not sure how big Finn is but he sure is cute.

This toy is limited to 3000 pieces and can be found at booths #3550 and #700, starting on July 11. Each plush will cost US$14.99.

PopCap bring in Funko, Jazwares, more for licensed merch photo
PopCap bring in Funko, Jazwares, more for licensed merch
by Kristina Pino

Are you a fan of PopCap games like Plants vs Zombies, Bejeweled Blitz and Zuma? Tired of seeing all those Angry Birds plushies everywhere, even in space, but not one stinkin' Pea Shooter or Squash plant plush anywhere, much less any cute(?) zombie or sunflower figure?

Well ... yeah, the time to wait is (almost) over. As of right now, PopCap have a press release detailing the agreements they've made with six different companies to license all kinds of merchandise, from apparel to plushies and more, for release as early as holiday 2012 (though the bulk of it is estimated for 2013). It's pretty exciting news because this will be the first time PopCap has ever done this, a decision that was made in no small part due to the demands of us folk who are addicted to their games.

Since I knew it'd be rather welcome news for the gamer type folk here on Tomopop and around the network, I was able to arrange a chat with some of the cool guys at PopCap and their PR to get more details and information on what we can expect from them! Hit past the jump for all the juicy details.

Note: the images contained in this article don't necessarily represent final designs for any product. This is a great opportunity for you folks to give PopCap your feedback via the comments section!
