It looks like the TIE Fighter Playset is now available on the Disney Store online. There are sound effects, the blasters light up, and there’s a squeeze handle that allows spinning action. Batteries, Fighter, Pilot, and missiles are included.
Honestly, the Pilot looks awesome and I’d love to be able to just have him, I could take or leave the actual Fighter. With the bulky looking handle it seems like it would be a pain in the butt for storage taking up a fair amount of space. Still, it’s not as expensive as other sets at just $29.95.
During my daily check of the Disney store, because yeah that’s what I do now, I noticed that they finally have links for some of the new releases! Currently, I’m on a buying freeze, for the foreseeable future, so no live shots anytime soon, but enjoy these pics and links and let me know if they’re as awesome as they look!
Maui is easily my favorite of this bunch. The detail on the tattoos looks so amazing! He is a couple dollars more than a regular figure, but that seems to be normal with the larger figures.
Moana is our newest Disney princess, I believe, so it makes sense that she’s the first princess figure we’re getting. I’m excited to see what comes next. I’ve heard that her hair can make it very difficult for her to stand up on her own and that you definitely need to position the oar in a certain way. Even with that she falls over easily.
Frozone is great to see, he’s my daughter’s favorite Incredibles character. His costume, though, is pretty basic so there isn’t much detail here. It’s just nice that they gave him an individual release.
Thanos is…Thanos. He’s a large purple dude and honestly looks a bit cheap in comparison to Maui. The detail on his armor just doesn’t seem to be there. Maybe he’s better irl?
*I’m not sure what happened to this post but it was deleted somehow and so I’m reposting it in roughly the same way it was, this took place a couple weeks ago*
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.
They were a bit out of my price range, Spider-Man was the cheapest at $29.95, the Toy Story set was over $60 I believe. Bullseye makes the set completely worth it, his large adorable eyes are awesome!
The Spider-Man Dune Buggy has flashing lights and is pretty hefty, so it’s a nice toy. If you missed out on Spider-Man this isn’t a bad way to pick him up.
BONUS! SuperSorrell was able to pick up Maui and Moana at a South London Disney Store. They weren’t on any flyers I’ve seen so they were a real surprise. They look INCREDIBLE. The tattoo detail on Maui is awesome! Moana’s feet look a bit weird and she seems to fall over VERY easily, but she is our FIRST Disney Princess and they picked a really good one. I’m excited to see them and definitely adding them to the list to buy…one day.
My trips to the Disney store are starting to become a weekly thing. Sadly, this time I was not able to pick up any figures. However, I did spot Frozone and Hulkbuster!
Frozone looks better than most of the other Incredibles. His face has got a fair amount of character. His uniform is fairly simplistic, already, and the light blue really adds to that. Just based on me pouring over it in the store it’s an excellent figure.
The Hulkbuster set is weighty, with both figures being fairly heavy. Hulkbuster lights up and makes noise and Hulk stands there looking pissed and green. The set was $40, so a bit pricey, but if you missed out on Hulk earlier this is probably the cheapest way to get him and you’ll have Tony Starks Hulkbuster.
