Listen, I wasn’t the hugest fan of The Mandalorian. I liked it, but there were definitely some rocky bits. However, it’s still Star Wars and it’s galaxies better than Episode Nine.
Anyway, The Mandalorian looks a lot like Boba and Jango Fett, of course. Which is a good thing in my book. They really nailed the Disney Toybox style with those characters. He’s got his nice armor, a gun, and did I mention The Child? Honestly, The Child is a bit eh. It doesn’t look like the crib closes and it’s basically a lump of plastic that hopefully has a flat enough bottom to sit.
Also, a bit of an annoyance, the figures are $2 more than a usual one. That’s normal for two characters, but still a bummer considering how little they did with The Child.
Jack Skellington has been re-released for the upcoming holiday season. He was one of the first released for the Disney Toybox line and hasn’t been available for a while. Jack is one of the coolest looking characters, though, I imagine he’s nearly impossible to keep upright.
After the last update there hasn’t been any news from the Disney Toybox lines. Still hoping for more Star Wars figures and maybe the start of some princesses being released. We’ll just have to wait and see.
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
Wow we’ve got another new set showing up on the Disney online store.
Captain America and Winter Soldier, both with interchangeable heads, as well as a motorcycle that has lights and makes sounds. Bucky is a new figure and I hope he becomes available on his own, but we’ll have to wait and see. He comes with a knife and gun, while Cap has a new shield. Cap looks to be the same mold, but a pretty cool paint job.
Price wise it’s $40, which I still think is too much for a set like this, but it falls in line with others that have been released. It’s nice to see another “side character” I hope we get even more. Also, I’m still holding out for some Disney princesses in the Toybox line.
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?
