We’ve got a new stormtrooper in the Disney Toybox Star Wars line. They are some of my favorite figures, even though they aren’t the best at standing up. This one is less stylized than past ones, but I feel they’ve been moving away from the original Disney Infinity look. Which is a bummer as that’s what originally got me started collecting them.
This is considered a two-figure set, so because of that, it’s more expensive than others. The new price of $26.99 is ridiculous in my opinion, though. Since it’s Star Wars and pretty cool looking it could disappear from the online store fast. If it doesn’t, I expect it to drop in price fairly quickly. Depending on how many they made I don’t see a lot of people spending that much on a stormtrooper, no matter how cool looking.
On the back of the box, there’s a picture of a Boba Fett and Stormtrooper pack. The stormtrooper looks like one that’s already been released. However, the Boba Fett looks different from the previous one.
I’m still a bit shocked at that price. I realize we’ve had supply shortages, but that seems crazy. For comparison, the Ashoka Tano and Captain Rex set is only $18.99. I hope this isn’t a new price point because I will definitely not be continuing my collection at that price.
So we’ve got a new Spider-Man set. It looks more interesting than past ones, but I find it difficult to get excited about another one. At least we’ve now got a Peter Parker figure, not just another Spider-Man.
In time for Halloween we’ve got a new Jack Skellington figure and a double pack of Miguel and Héctor. This time Miguel has no face paint, so he is different. Héctor looks the same, though, he doesn’t come with his hat or guitar.
I love the first Jack figure, but it was sold out before I started collecting and I wasn’t able to purchase the original reissue. Not sure if I’ll splurge and get this one either. Especially since it looks like they’re going to be releasing a Captain Carter figure soon. Still, once again nice to see new figures, especially in the neglected Disney and Pixar lines.
There’s a new Jessie in town. This is our third iteration of her, though, she looks pretty much the same as the others. This is also the first Pixar figure in half a year if not more. If you weren’t able to or didn’t want to shell out the money for the Toy Story collection this will be a cheaper way to get Bullseye, though the two figures are one of the more expensive at $18.99.
It doesn’t look like they’ve fixed the hat issue Jessie and Woody have had, so keep that in mind if you decide to buy.
Personally, I believe they had extras and decided to repackage, but I have no way to confirm that. Oh well, enjoy.
We finally get to see number twenty-eight! I had wondered if it was going to be a new Black Widow and had just been put off because of the movie, but apparently not. We’ve got another Venom figure. This one comes with slime and injectors. You can actually inject the slime into the figure and it will ooze out all gross like. The pictures on the store look cool, but I don’t know how reusable that slime would be. It seems like you’d get two good uses out and then if you’re able to gather it up a couple less than good uses. There’s no mention of a slime recipe or slime that could be used when this runs out.
I’m not a fan of Venom so this isn’t a figure I care too much about. It is at least a new take on the figures with the whole slime aspect.
