Wall-E by Thinkway Toys

There are new toys that have come out by Thinkway Toys. I had to grab Wall-E to start, as he is one guy I always like, but never got around to getting one of the figures.

There are a few sized to these figures. This is one the larger size format figures. He is very posable, with movements at the shoulders, wrists, and opening hands. His arms can also be moved to extra holes at the front edge of his body, down low.

He has movement in his neck, and his eyes can be posed. He can also roll on very nice wheels mounted down low.


He comes with two blocks that fit inside his body, and can be ejected. You can also put play dough in there and eject any color cube you want.

Grabbing this guy was a bit of a gamble.  I have never heard of Thinkway toys, so I didn’t know what to expect.  It is a Disney product, so I was thinking it was fairly safe to go with it.  He turned out to be very nice.  There is a smaller version I saw where he is rusted like he is in the movie. I bought this one at a local Toys R Us.  I haven’t seen any of these figures anywhere else yet, but I am sure they will be popping up sooner or later.  There are some great Pixar products in the lineup.  Finding Nemo and The Incredibles to name two.  Definitely a fun toy, and a great addition to my Disney collection.

Back from Disneyland

A few days spent down south at Disneyland.  And a few toys to show for it.   Even though Star Tours is closed for renovation, and a new movie, there was still a toy presence for Star Wars there at Disneyland.

One of the fun lines they have are the Disney characters dressed to look like a Star Wars Character.  Now I cannot see spending a ton of money on these guys since I know that both Disney and Lucas want their piece of the pie, but I did grab one set.  Two of my favorite Disney characters are Chip and Dale, so there was no way I would pass up the chance of getting them dressed as the Ewoks.

Dressed in head gear with some weapons.  The best part is the replica Stormtrooper helmet that comes with the set.  Not a lot of motion for these guys.  A spin in the shoulder and a bit of a head turn is all you get with these guys.  Not a lot, but there is not a lot to work with.  At about only half the size of the standard Ewok figures, these guys are pretty small.  That is probably why they added a helmet with them.

My love for all things toys is matched with my love for all things cars.  So, with a new trip to a Disney park, meant a new Disney Racer, or two, or three.   I couldn’t decide, so I got all three.

Starting with Chip.  Of course I could not pass up getting the Chip racer.  If they had the Dale Racer I would have gotten that one too, but if I had to choose, I like Chip a little better anyway.   Character faces with engines.  Can’t go wrong there.

This is a great little car.  A well designed representation of everyone’s favorite clown fish Nemo.   I could easily see someone making a VW Beetle into this car.  Wouldn’t that be fun?

Then we have Mr. Cleaner, Wall-E.  A very sharp-edged industrial look to this racer.  Very different than the others.   I like different, and I like Wall-E, so this was a natural for me to grab.

So, with these three, I am now up to five racers.  A fun small collection including Goofy and Stitch.  I am sure I will NEVER collect all of them. There are just too many that I don’t care about, and that look too strange as vehicles.    I do however think this is a fun thing to collect at each visit to a park.
