I found these photos from Oakster on PixarPost but didn't see him posting it here. Thinkway appears to be continuing the line with Ducky and Bunny:
Spoiler: show

Even though they're going to be pretty expensive for talking plushies, I like that they added the tiny plastic hook which none of the other few toys available of the duo include. I think it's reasonable to assume we'll see at least a TSSC Bo Peep and Gabby Gabby considering they're among the main players in TS4. Only time will tell on the 22nd when toys start hitting the shelves.

While not closely related, Thinkway also seems to be changing the old Woody and Buzz head molds on the cheaper toys (and sacrificing basic articulation and features) which offer a few new expressions. There's one Woody doll that uses a closed mouth smile head mold. It's not perfect but I wonder if they'll update the TSSC Woody and Buzz.

Wow, I’m actually surprised they’re continuing the line but that great to see. I’ll probably never pick these two up but they look well done. Wonder if the plastic hooks make it to the retail version.

I’m eager to see that closed mouth Woody in person. Figured that was a lost cause. Almost more annoying that they finally did it and it’s on the cheapest model possible and they just had to slightly raise an eyebrow.

Interesting, if nothing else maybe we can put this head on the tsc woody. Of course, a revised TSC woody would be more ideal.

Edit: oh, and hey, we finally get a slinky without the rope coming out of the head. Woo!

I still hate the sculpt though. The muzzle is just not the correct shape. And his texture is too shiney.

Yeah, I hope that new Woody is the same scale as all the others because the only thing it’s good for is a head swap.

Good news on Slinky. I agree with the criticisms but it’s good enough for me. I’d like to put better ears on him though.

I can’t tell in those pics, is Bunny’s whole snout plastic? Because in the movie it is. Typical TSC if that’s an inaccuracy.

Thanks for all of the updates everyone! Two steps forward and one step back for Thinkway it seems (at least with Woody and Slinky).

My bad! As the Slinky was in the "Thinkway" thread, I incorrectly assumed it was a Thinkway product.

Oops, no, yeah, that's my bad. I guess these days its kind of a wild west anyway with all the spam. He's not exactly a replica or a thinkway toy, so I'm not sure we even have a good thread for him, so I just stuck him here.

This is probably me just speculating but Thinkway seems to have removed the Incredibles 2 & Minions stuff from their website. I think it's anyone's guess that they're likely going to update both Toy Story sections with new toys that we'll start seeing on shelves starting next Monday.

Also, not really TSC related but some Thinkway Toy Story merch was previewed on the Australian Today Show. Nothing really interesting other than the Bo Peep doll the girl is playing with. That looks like the deluxe talking Bo from the Smyths toy website.

Oh my word she is beautiful...

https://www.instagram.com/p/BwjMK8lBb9J/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=dq00ihdwa96i

99 dollars, I can't see a UK price.

She definitely comes with her sheep, and is that a lamp I see too..?
Almost certainly she is not ceramic, but to have an original Bo of this quality and accuracy is wonderful.

Quite a steep price point for a toy with no interactivity or sounds (as far as I know) considering originals like Buzz with far more play features retailed for less back in the day. But still, she's a must have for my collection. And I have the 1995 Bo too! This looks better.

Thoughts?

Was about to post this lol. She looks so good but I'm not sure if the lamp she comes with is just a part of her box or real.

And $100 is a bit much for a toy that doesn't talk so I'll definitely be waiting to pick her up.

Easily the best looking Bo Peep to date.

More pictures and clarity.

No lamp included
Not ceramic (obviously)
No interactive or voice features
Target exclusive? So not sure what that means for us in the UK.

Still looks beautiful and accurate, but yeah... that price compared to the first 3 waves of Toy Story Collection. :shock:

Well that sucks lol. $100 For a doll and sheep alone is asking for much, even for a TSC toy but whatever. I'm not 100% but I'd like to think TRU in Canada and Smyths in the UK may start selling her too.

In addition to Bo,Ducky, & Bunny, there's an Austrailian website that rumored a TSSC Duke Caboom through a listing but no one has seem images of it yet. Depending on how much it costs and what it loojs like, I'll opt to get that.
