I’m sorry to anyone who hasn’t yet watched Falcon and Winter Soldier because the new figures contain spoilers.
Captain America Sam Wilson looks really cool. Honestly one of the coolest looking figures to come out so far. Definitely in the Marvel line. Those wings are awesome and I think his face really hits the design of the figures. It’s also really nice to FINALLY have a figure that’s a person of color and you can actually see that. With Black Panther and Miles Morales they’re wearing their masks and there’s no way to tell that they aren’t white. At least with Captain Marvel they provided two heads. I’m pretty happy with this figure.
On the other side of things we’ve got Winter Soldier. They somehow took Sebastian Stan, a ridiculously attractive man, and made him into generic white man number one. Fine, fine it’s not supposed to be Sebastian Stan. I realize that. None of the other figures look like their people either, except for maybe Doctor Strange. Still, this figure lacks personality. Even the quirky eyebrows aren’t enough to help this face. At least the costume is cool looking. Though you can see in this pic the knife is bent so I would be hesitant to buy this online.
It’s been nice to get new Toybox figures tied to the Marvel TV shows on Disney+. It makes marketing sense. The other lines are falling behind on the quantity of figures. Hopefully, when we start getting more Star Wars tv shows we’ll start getting figures again. Even without that Disney still has a fairly deep well of characters they can pull from if they feel like it.
We’ve got a new set showing up in the Disney Store online today. It’s an Iron Man Hall of Armor Play Set. It comes with an Iron Man figure and two different add on suits. The figure itself doesn’t look different than the last one that came out. The suits appear to click on and I believe will work on any already released Iron Man figure.
It seems like Disney is focusing on Play Sets right now. I can see how that would bring in a younger audience, so hopefully kids like it so we continue to get cool figures.
New Figures! These are all ones that I’ve previously mentioned on the blog, but they are now all, finally, showing up in the store. IMO Sorcerer Mickey is the best one, however I wish they’d kept the style from the Disney Infinity Figure. I’m hoping that they release a special one like they did with the game as well.
Searching and comparing the Disney Infinity figure with the Toybox one was a mistake. They’ve changed the style way too much and it’s not nearly as cute anymore.
Overall, I still believe that the Star Wars line has kept to the art style the best. Marvel has always been more hit or miss, but there have been a lot more misses lately. The newest Disney figures from Coco were great, but the Peter Pan and Hook figures look like regular figures. As a fan it’s disappointing.
The Toybox line started out adorable, carrying on the torch of Disney Infinity beautifully, after it was canceled. The art style was unique and the price point was acceptable. Along the way something has changed. I don’t know what it is, but I hope things are corrected and we return to what I originally loved about the figures.
All of my lists have been updated with the new figures. I’m still missing a couple numbers on the Disney list. I honestly have no idea what I could have missed so if someone knows please let me know so I can add them.
This is an Amazon exclusive that I found today. I don’t collect these figures, but seeing it made me all of a sudden want an Agent Carter toybox figure so bad! Ughhhhhh It would be so cool. It’s never going to happen. Agent Carter has been supremely shafted by Marvel, but I’m going to dream. Basically, I’m creating a wish list of figures just for her lol
SuperSorrell has a picture of each on his Instagram which I’ve linked here. None of these are showing up yet on the Disney store.
This is the third Hulk figure and the hundredth Spider-Man figure. Seriously, it’s getting a bit ridiculous with the Spider-Men. Spider-Ham is cool, but a venomized Spider-Man and Hulk? Maybe finish releasing the Guardian’s of the Galaxy or more X-Men figures. Something new please.
