NEW Disney Toybox Figures

Woke up today to a few new sets showing up on the Disney store online.

First, we’ve got a re-release of Thor where his face has been changed slightly and his eyes make him look deranged. He was the first Marvel figure released and there hasn’t been a re-release of him, unlike all the others. So if you missed out on roided out Thor, here you are. Loki has been reskinned but other than that looks the same.

Now, this isn’t part of the main line, it’s considered an Action Figure Set. It’s also the only way to get Gamora if you’ve been wanting her. Rocket and Groot look the same as in their previous release. While Star Lord appears to be another reskin only. I like his new colors though.

Last we’ve got two new Troopers and a new droid. The Clone Trooper looks a lot like the already released Captain Rex, but at this point, the Troopers are all starting to run together. Did you know they were the only cool figure type thing in the Star Wars universe?

Droids wise, C-3P0 has a silver leg, but R5-D4 is the only new one in this set. Though, this has been the first time you could get D-0 without having to buy the full Millenium Falcon set with Rey. This set is a couple dollars cheaper than that was at launch.

I’ve been a bit down on the Toybox line recently. I’m unimpressed with the appearance of the newer figures and the price has skyrocketed. Still, I am glad to see new releases. I’ll keep holding out hope they return to the adorable looking Disney Infinity aesthetic, though.

Disney Toybox Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch

So we’ve got a new Marvel Toybox figure set. The new Doctor Strange movie comes out in a little over a week so it’s not too surprising to see. However, I’m getting tired of these two packs. Almost $40 (more when taking into consideration tax and shipping since it’s from the online store) is just too much for me.

Anyway, the figures look exactly like the already released ones. It’s been a while since the Doctor Strange figure was released so it’s nice to see him out and about again. This will be the second pairing Scarlet Witch has had, the first was with Vision. She has never been available on her own.

Style-wise I think they did a good job with these figures. Strange is an older one so he was before they kind of moved away from what I liked about the figures, to begin with, but Scarlet Witch looks fine too. It appears as though they both now come with little accessories that they didn’t have before.

I’m excited to see the new movie and it’s always nice to see new figures pop up.

My Never Ending To-Read Pile

So it’s that time again. The time where I have too many books checked out from the library and I’m unable to read them fast enough. I’ve got one in transit now and the two on top are due in three days.

In my defense! I visited my family last week. It was the first time I’d seen them in fifteen months. That’s the longest I’ve ever been away from them. It was emotional and exhausting. I read one book and watched no movies.

I’m not sure how long it will take to get through Black Buck but I’m fairly certain I’ll fly through the Tristan Strong book. Hopefully I can catch up.

Library Haul 04-23-21

I put 15 books on hold a few weeks back. I did that many because they’re all newer books with long wait times. Naturally three came in at one time and I picked up Tristan Strong because I’ve been meaning to read it.

As soon as I got home I received a notification that two more books were ready to pick up. :Facepalm:

It begins again, another race to read my library books as fast as possible. 🏃‍♀️📚

Currently Reading 02-25-21

Well, I finished reading Ready Player Two. Obviously not a fan if you read my review. I’m moving on to The Trouble with Hating You by Sajni Patel. Based on the blurb it sounds not quite an enemies to lovers, but definitely not a love at first sight. I like the prospect of some witty banter. I’d love witty right now.
