In an effort to always take more of our money, Disney went about and found a new toy line to create. Based around the Infinity game that has been canceled, Disney make action figures based on the cartoon style of the statues. I am not much of a statue collector, but I have always admired the design work of the statues. So, for Disney to come out with new figures based on those designs is pretty cool.
I happened down to my local Disney Store this morning looking for something else, but Jessie and Woody caught my eye. On the box they are #2 and #3. That could only mean one thing… #1 was Buzz Lightyear. A quick check of the back confirmed that for me. Unfortunately there was no Buzz in the store.
I didn’t know anything else about them, other than this says “Pixar Series.” That meant there was a good chance that there would be other figures from other series. None were in the store, but I would find about about that later.
So, finally I got home and busted these two out. They are fantastic. Lots of good articulation, all the way down to double joints in the wrists and ankles. They both have removable hats, and one extra accessory. Woody has a snake in the boot. Push the button and the snake shakes around. Jessie has a lasso.
The details in the outfits are fantastic. Big oversized stitching as well as big buttons. They have flattened legs, like they do in the movies, and drawstring loops on their backs. Just fantastic.
At the bottom of the packaging, there is a Toybox pamphlet. It shows all of the figures out so far. Along with the 3 Pixar figures out, it looks like they are planning for 4 more, 3 men and a woman. There are also Star Wars Toybox figures. Kylo Ren, Rey, and a First Order Stormtrooper. They also have 3 more in the pipeline, 2 men and a woman. And finally, there is the Marvel Toybox. The first 4 figures are Thor, Hulk, Spider-Man and Iron Man. They are planning on 2 more women and a man in a future wave.
I consider this one of the joys of the Disney takeover of the world. We start to get some interesting figures like this, and they can be mixed and matched between lines. These figures are only available at the Disney Store, so get in there, or get them online. You will not be disappointed.
