The wait is nearly over, Pixar fans – Toy Story 4 is only ten days away! Pixar have done a great job with their advertising as usual: lots of trailers, teasers, sponsors, and merchandise, but not so much that we feel like we know the plot inside out already. Yes, we know Bo Peep is back. Forky is definitely going to play a major role. But how central are the characters of Duke Caboom, Gabby Gabby, Giggle McDimples, and Ducky and Bunny going to be?

It’s difficult to keep up with all the new Toy Story 4-related news when we’re so close to the release date, so here’s a quick ‘Woody’s Round-Up’ to bring you all up to speed.

Teasers Galore!

Here is the latest of many Toy Story 4 teasers that have been posted on Pixar’s YouTube channel. You can catch up on all the others here.

A lot of the teasers don’t feature too much new footage, but you can get a better feeling for the pacing of the different scenes in these shorts clips as opposed to the trailers. Here, you can totally tell that Bo and Duke’s relationship is going to be hilarious.

Best Friends 4 Ever

Tom Hanks (Woody) and Tim Allen (Buzz) explored their friendship, both within and outside the Toy Story universe, in Pixar’s video celebrating National Best Friend Day. It’s heartwarming. It’s charming. It’s everything I’ve ever wanted.

“Oh, but I have the most fabulous line you could ever have: ‘Come on, guys!‘”

We should attempt to count how many times Woody says that in the Toy Story series.

The Best Friend Day festivities even continued at Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World, where a press conference was held alongside a Toy Story 4 screening. And the initial reactions have been amazingly positive!

Keanu Reeves is stood next to a giant Buzz Lightyear and everything is okay in the world. From left to right: Tom Hanks (Woody), Annie Potts (Bo Peep), Tim Allen (Buzz), Tony Hale (Forky), Christina Hendricks (Gabby Gabby), Keanu Reeves (Duke Caboom).

Toy Story 4 To Feature Lots Of Easter Eggs

Pixar is famous for throwing in a few well-hidden Easter eggs into their movies – the Pizza Planet truck is always fun to locate, as well as the Luxo ball, throwbacks to previous films, and hints at future characters (remember when Duke Caboom casually showed up in Jack-Jack’s crib in Incredibles 2?). Apparently Toy Story 4 is going to feature a ton of these fun Easter eggs. The antique shop setting lends itself well to this kind of game.

Hey, doesn’t that tin toy look kind of familiar?


We can’t wait to discuss Toy Story 4 with you all when it releases in theatres on June 21st!

Pixar Short Films Vinyl Toys Coming Soon from MINDstyle!

Pixar Short Films Collection, Short Film, Tin Toy

Posted by Martin • February 15, 2010

As a huge fan of early Pixar I’ve been waiting a long time for an announcement (little late) like this: Pixar Short Films toys!

Now, I’m aware that they have had collectibles from short films before. You know, at like… the Pixar Studio Store and special events — places not many of us have the luxury of visiting too often. So when I heard MINDstyle had taken up the job of making vinyl toys based on Pixar’s earlier gems, I was ecstatic!!

According to the company’s recent blog posts on the subject, MINDstyle is determined to explore characters from the entire canon of shorts. First up is Tinny from Pixar’s first Academy Award winning film, Tin Toy! The models (seen above) are looking great, I can’t wait to see the final product. Also coming soon from MINDstyle are toys from The Adventures of Andre & Wally B. and For the Birds! No word on release dates yet.

Now that we’re talking toys, it’s time for a random but related detour. At the Toy Fair, Mattel showcased new die-casts from the upcoming Cars Toons short ‘Monster Truck Mater." Check out Lightning’s alter-ego, Frightening McMean.

With the big Toy Story 3 toy announcements yesterday and now this, there’s going to be a lot of shopping to do! Will you be getting Pixar Short Films toys?

Amid from Cartoon Brew writes about writing a book for Pixar chronicling their short films.

The coffeetable book I’m working on, which will be out later this year, is directly tied in to the Pixar Short Films Collection dvd, and is an in-depth history of the studio’s early shorts. I was naturally thrilled when they asked me to come on board because, well, come on it’s Pixar, but also because I know the importance of shorts to the company’s history and the value that they place on creating animated shorts even now that they’re a successful feature studio

Read the rest here. I for one am excited to see what Amid dishes up for us all, and I think it will be a must have.
