Yeah, I knew about the toy, but cool to see someone do the headswap. I probably wont have the guts to try it, but I really want to. Maybe if I had enough money to buy another one to tinker with I would.

Also, is it just me or does the hugable versions head seem smaller than the tsc version?

Hmmm it might be a bit smaller, but it might also be the way the guy holds it in the video. Unfortunately, I'm cursed with not living in the US so it'll be a while/never before I see the Soft/Huggable Woody in stores. In any case, it would take 2 minutes to swap heads with the Disney Store version because the heads of both the Soft/Huggable Woody and Disney Store Woody are just held on by zip-ties... no neck-cutting needed. I definitely don't have the guts to carve up a Signature Collection/Collection Woody. Besides, the Disney Store Woody has the open hands so that's a plus for accuracy!

For everyone's information, the Mattel Epic Moves Bo Peep's Giggle McDimples character is the perfect scale to accompany the Disney Store version of Bo Peep. They make an awesome pairing I personally think.

Its so odd when you compare the new design to the old one, look at how thick that upper lash is now.

Tbh it doesn't bother me as much anymore but it makes her look like the recent CGi Disney Princesses since it makes her eyes larger.

Nothing really major but Mattel's Toy Story figure line is including Tinny and 2/3 Combat Carl Jrs in TS4:

And shopDisneyuk put up a pre-order for a True Talker Forky figure to go alongside the others.

Within a couple of hours of receiving my package, I'd made eyebrows for the new Playskool Potato Heads and a pair of earrings for Mrs. Potato Head. The eyebrows make a huge difference, I think (thinking back to pictures of celebrities without their eyebrows).

Also, I picked up the Deluxe Talking Adventure Bo, added silver detailing onto the staff, and replaced the purple button thread with white thread. The Giggles is too big, but it's a keychain that I cut and partially re-painted. If only the cape came with the polka-dot side!

Oh, all I did was fill the inside of the mouth with a black pen and lightly smudge the lips with diluted red paint, but I suppose it did make a big difference for the overall look.

My modified Toy Story 4 Playskool Mr. Potato Head with an unmodified TSC Mr. Potato Head (I did make separate eyes for my TSC Potato Head but they don't look so good so I didn't show them here). I've heard people say that the TSC Potato Head still wins in terms of accuracy. In terms of the shape of the potato body, ears, and separate shoes, I completely agree. But the overall look and expression of the Playskool one just reminds me a BIT more of the film Potato Head. I can't quite say why I think so; maybe it's the glossier, more flexible plastic they used? The shape of the Playskool eyes being more movie-accurate, despite being one piece, is definitely a huge factor. Also, the nose is more rounded compared to the more angular nose of the TSC Potato Head. Plus, it's an ACTUAL classic Potato Head toy without electronics. I'm sure a lot of people will disagree with me, and that's okay. I'm happy to have both in my collection.

Thinkway really dropped the ball with the TSC Woody twice in terms of his face. If they opted out of his closed mouth smile, they really should have filled in the inside of his mouth at least. It is such a noticeable improvement whenever I see someone fix it.

And nice Potato Head mod. I'm thinking of buying the new Potato Head and using the '80s Potato head body as the base since his arms are closer to what they look like in the films.

What material did you use to make the eyebrows? As they look fantastic! Also how are they attached? :D

Thanks! I just used Milliput epoxy clay; sculpted them over the potato body, which I covered with plastic/cling wrap to protect the plastic while sculpting. For Mr Potato Head, I just attached the brows onto the eyes with Fabri-Tac (strong hold and could be permanent but can be peeled off if needed), but you can probably use blu tack or something else less permanent. For Mrs, I had to attach the brows directly onto the body with the same glue. :)

Has anybody heard anything about a full-size movie acurrate Gabby Gabby? All I've been able to find are small scale versions/Funko Pops. Also, has anybody on here made their own? I'm planning on making my own using a Chatty Cathy doll as the base.

As of right now, there isn't one available but considering Thinkway plans on adding new toys to the Collection line after Bo, Bunny, and Ducky. With a Duke due Fall 2019, it wouldn't be unrealistic to assume Gabby Gabby is included in the next wave.

Close to movie scale but it may be the best we may ever get https://youtu.be/Vbv3_5P25Bc
