Disney Toybox: TIE Fighter Play Set

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.

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 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:

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.

Disney Toybox Figures: Star Wars Line

Kylo Ren was the first Star Wars figure to come out in the Star Wars Disney Toybox line and currently it is the only figure, in that line, that is no longer available on their website. Yoda has been announced, but I’m unaware of the release date at this time.

Princess Leia is what started my obsession with these toys. Her face is perfect, the attitude and competence this little figure exudes is spot on for the character. This is the line I am most excited for and money willing I will be able to collect them all.

Where I can I’ve added Amazon links, but always check the price because it will fluctuate.

Thoughts and Speculation

They seem to be bouncing all over the place with the Star Wars characters. We’ve got original trilogy and new, which is nice. They’ve elected to have the younger versions of the characters, except in Han’s case (thank god).

Yoda is the only figure currently announced that has not yet been released but with the popularity of Star Wars I’m sure there are many more in the pipeline. They specified that the Stormtrooper is a First Order one, so that hints at more to come.

I’m really excited by this visual interpretation of the characters. They are cute, without going too far in that direction. They still have attitude. The women have not been sexualized, but they are still very clearly feminine.

I’m looking forward to a Finn, Poe, and Rose figure. I really hope that we get a Holdo figure as well, but that’s probably going to be a stretch. Obi Wan, Queen Amidala, and Qui Gon Gin would be fun too. I wonder if they will end up doing older versions of the characters they’ve done? That would be fun. General Leia. Crotchety Han. So many awesome characters in the franchise. So many directions they could go. Exciting!
