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!

Tokidoki rolls out new toys just in time for the holidays

I was a fan of the first Unicorno series of figures by Tokidoki, so I'm glad to say that the second set looks just as good -- actually, perhaps even better. Series 2 will see the addition of a rocking Unicorno (fun!) as well ...

SDCC 2012: tokidoki
by Brian Szabelski

One of the busiest booths at San Diego Comic Con was tokidoki's, as it was filled with folks checking out their T-shirts and collectibles almost every time I walked past. Then again, it was like that last year when I went as well, but this year was a bit different.

Why? Because we didn't just stop by the booth to check out the exclusives: we also got the chance to talk to Simone Legno, and got some amazing news for tokidoki fans! Hit the jump for all the news!

tokidoki counts down to SDCC with exclusives, new lineup photo
tokidoki counts down to SDCC with exclusives, new lineup
by Natalie Kipper

The italian company, tokidoki, will be joining other designer toymakers at next week's Comic Con and, to celebrate the occasion, they are featuring a countdown on their blog and FaceBook page that is unveiling news and exclusives all the way up to the start of the con. Highlights thus far include a limited edition Muddy Porcino figure, Silver Porcino and Truffle figures, and a signing event with Simone Legno, the co-founder and creative director of tokidoki. More surprises will be revealed each day, so those interested should be sure to check on tokidoki's blog daily (or just scroll through it the day before SDCC).

That's not all tokidoki has for toy lovers. According to Spanky Stokes, the company recently announced a new collection of vinyl and plush toys called "Punkstar." The set will start to be released sometime this month and feature a 3 inch tall vinyl punk rocker dog named Rudy (US$9.95), Maxx the 9 inch tall plush monkey (US$19.95), as well as a new series of blind boxed 1 and a half inch figures called Punkstar Frenzies (US$5.95 each). The blind boxes will be coming to stores a little later than the other goods but I am sure it will be worth the wait.
