Disney Toybox: Spider-Man and Toy Story Sets BONUS Maui & Moana

I was able to go to the Disney Store this weekend, and or course I picked up a couple Toybox figures. I’ll post some pics of them later, for now I wanted to share some pics of the two sets I saw.

These were both, currently, out of my price range at over $60, but they looked great! Spider-Man’s Dune Buggy makes noise and just going on the heft of the packaging seemed really solid. If you missed out on Spider-Man when he was released earlier this wouldn’t be a bad way to pick him up.

Bullseye makes the Toy Story set completely worth it. He is freaking adorable.

The store was super crowded because of a costume event going on so I wasn’t able to get any more pics, sorry, but I did pick up Boba Fett, Luke, and Yoda. Finally, Yoda! Excited for my purchases and still loving this series. I actually looked for a good display shelf to put over my desk but the one I liked was out of stock, of course. I’ll just have to keep looking.

Before I leave, I wanted to post a link to SuperSorrell’s Instagram where they have some amazing pics of Maui and Moana which are NEW Disney Toybox figures! Apparently, they were leaked or released early at a South London Disney Store. They look so AWESOME!!! Here’s a link to their YouTube unboxing video as well.

These came out of nowhere and don’t seem to have been shown on any of the flyers I’ve seen floating around the internet. As a big Moana fan I’m ridiculously excited by these and have poured over the images. Apart from Moana’s feet looking a little weird in the images posted, I think they look incredible! A bit bummed that I didn’t see them in the Disney Store when I was there, but oh well. Adding them to the list!

Disney Toybox Stars Wars Updates

I’ve been checking the Disney Store a couple times a day for Yoda, but so far no such luck. However, SuperSorrell has recently posted some pics on their Instagram as well as an unboxing video. So he’s real! They’re just dragging their feet on adding it to their online shop. That makes sense in a digital world.

I did find something new today, though. The Millennium Falcon Star Wars Play Set!

Millennium Falcon Star Wars Play Set

At a whopping $79.95 this set comes with Han and Chewie, who both come with their accessories, though, they aren’t pictured. The Falcon, which has sound effects! The engine and blasters light-up! Retractable landing gear, hinged landing ramp, rotating freaking turret with missile launcher, rotating satellite dish, and detachable roof panels.

There’s a lot, but there should be with that price tag. I really want to see this in action, because the pictures aren’t really selling it to me, but that list of features is pretty awesome. Really curious to see the Tie Fighter now. Will it make noise and flash lights? How much will it be? Who knows!!

Here are a couple more pics of the Millennium Falcon set that are on the Disney Store website.

Disney Toybox: Buzz Lightyear

I unboxed Buzz a while ago, but he and my other figures got a photo shoot so I thought I’d share my mad photo skills.

Buzz is an awesome figure, but be forewarned if you’re buying him as a toy his jetpack comes off VERY easily and you will lose it and the wings will break. They’re very thin and just begging for little fingers to bend and break them.

His coloring and expression are perfect for the toy. Lots of attitude and teeth, definitely confident in his Star Command position.

He has a lot of posable joints and is easy to stand up on his own. I do wish he had a visor, definitely missing that component. I did have a bit of trouble with one of the knee joints, the plastic was too stiff or something and when it finally bent a bit of plastic that was apparently stuck in the joint came out. Still having issues with that knee but since I’m not playing with it, it’s no big deal.

Buzz is a pretty great figure and I look forward to hopefully being able to complete the Toy Story line. It is one of the older lines so anyone looking to collect will want to snatch them up as they seem them, though, wait. I forgot, they’ve made a collection including Bullseye, so never mind lol. Unless, you want an individual figure. Dum dum dummmmmmmmmm

Disney Toybox Wave 6 Speculation

So what is and isn’t Wave 6 I’m not 100% on because there doesn’t seem to be an official website and different websites say different things and the flyers included with the toys are often wrong.

I was able to find some images of the most recent flyer over on Toy News International forum posted by JayC

 

 

There are also images of sets that should already be out. I’ve seen images of the Toy Story set which makes me a bit sad that I bought Buzz already because buying a set would make so much more sense. The rumor is that Frozone and Bullseye both have their own codes so they should be released separate, but they aren’t shown on the lists or grayed out so we’ll have to wait and see. I hope we get them.

Also, wtf is that between Edna and Frozone?

The Star Wars sets look so cool (can you tell I’m a fan lol). Han Solo was going to be my next purchase and I’m glad that I waited. I do wonder how big the Falcon is and if it does anything besides look neat. We’re also shown a Tie Fighter and Pilot set that’s interesting. Other than that, though, there are no clues about what’s coming out for Star Wars next. Yoda is shown, but he should be in stores and be a part of Wave 5.

Based on these images Thanos should be out, though, I haven’t seen him anywhere. They’ve also listed him as #12 but Gray Hulk has been assigned that number. So are we getting Thanos? The speculation on the forum is that the grayed out figures are part of Thanos Black Order and I can certainly see that in the silhouettes, but come on, seriously? We’re getting bad guys before some more female characters? Ugh. Come on Disney.

There also seems to be some sets coming out from Marvel. Hulkbuster and Hulk, so if you’ve missed Hulk when he was originally released you’ve got a second chance to pick him up. Also, Spider-Man and his…Dune Buggy. *eye roll*

The grayed out images for the Disney line seem to be Minnie Mouse and Stich. Minnie makes sense since we’ve got Mickey, but I’m kind of hoping I’ve missed the guess with Stich because that doesn’t really make sense. Is there a new Lilo and Stich movie coming out? A TV show? Seems a bit random.

I’m sure it’s probably the same person or team working on all the lines, but the Star Wars and Pixar lines seem much more thought out than the Marvel and maybe now Disney. I hope I’m wrong, and just based on Google searches it’s entirely possible those silhouettes could be wrong. We’ll just have to wait and see.

As of right now I don’t have a release date for any of the Wave 6 figures.

*UPDATE*

There is going to be a Live Action Lilo and Stich movie so maybe that explains the new Toybox figure? Still seems a bit early, but at least it’s not so completely out of left field.

*2nd UPDATE*

It seems like the Minnie Mouse and Stich images were incorrect because we’ve now got Maui and Moana figures in those spots. So basically, the flyers are nice speculation but take them with a healthy dose of salt.

Disney Toybox Wave 5 Thoughts

I’m playing catchup when it comes to Disney Toybox figures. My obsession started after they were already several waves in so I’m having to piece things together. From what I can tell these are the Wave 5 figures:

Ralph

Han Solo

Yoda (No pic as of yet)

All but Yoda are showing up on the Disney Store website at the time I’m writing this, but from just my new experience that doesn’t seem odd. Their online store appears to get things later than their actual physical stores. These are currently exclusive to the Disney Store so that’s important to know. You can buy them through Amazon, because Disney has a version of their store available there, but once they’re sold out you have to go through a third party.

Anyway, this most recent wave has some interesting additions. Han and Chewie look amazing, which continues the theme of great Star Wars figures for this line. Their expressions and accessories are perfect and once again they’re from the original trilogy. They are an obvious addition to the line and I can’t wait to add them to my collection.

Ralph and Vanellope are another obvious choice for the Disney line. Wreck it Ralph 2 comes out in theaters soon so it’s understandable why these were released now. Ralph is massive and is $2 more expensive than a regular figure. His body and clothes look great, but, like the Jessie toy, I’m a bit disappointed in the face. It’s rather generic, though, it’s not as derpy as the Incredibles family. Vanellope doesn’t have that problem, she’s smirking and looking amused at something. Lots of personality there, her accessories are also adorable.

Baymax, like Ralph, costs $2 more than a usual figure because of his massive size. Dressed in his bright red armor he looks like he’d be a lot of fun to play with. He has removable wings and several moveable joints. Released along side him is Hiro who comes with a changeable hair or helmet option. He’s got a smirk on his face and is definitely rocking some personality. I assume these two were released because of the series.

The odd ball in this entire batch, for me, is Gray Hulk. I’m not sure why they would release him. He hasn’t been in any of the movies and they have certainly not used up all the characters from the franchise yet. His expression is different from the Green Hulk that was released earlier, but he is still, ultimately, a Hulk, just a different color.
