Disney Toybox: Shadow Trooper & R2-Q5

We’ve got a new stormtrooper in the Disney Toybox Star Wars line. They are some of my favorite figures, even though they aren’t the best at standing up. This one is less stylized than past ones, but I feel they’ve been moving away from the original Disney Infinity look. Which is a bummer as that’s what originally got me started collecting them.

This is considered a two-figure set, so because of that, it’s more expensive than others. The new price of $26.99 is ridiculous in my opinion, though. Since it’s Star Wars and pretty cool looking it could disappear from the online store fast. If it doesn’t, I expect it to drop in price fairly quickly. Depending on how many they made I don’t see a lot of people spending that much on a stormtrooper, no matter how cool looking.

On the back of the box, there’s a picture of a Boba Fett and Stormtrooper pack. The stormtrooper looks like one that’s already been released. However, the Boba Fett looks different from the previous one.

I’m still a bit shocked at that price. I realize we’ve had supply shortages, but that seems crazy. For comparison, the Ashoka Tano and Captain Rex set is only $18.99. I hope this isn’t a new price point because I will definitely not be continuing my collection at that price.

Spider-Man Crime Lab Play Set

So we’ve got a new Spider-Man set. It looks more interesting than past ones, but I find it difficult to get excited about another one. At least we’ve now got a Peter Parker figure, not just another Spider-Man.

Sorry, I’ve got a horrible headache. Have fun.

New Disney Toybox Figures

Sorry for the horrible photos. I haven’t seen these in person and had to screen shot what SuperSorrel has posted.

Anyway…holy cow I was not expecting a General Grievous figure!! That is so cool! I need some better pics to look at the details, but just the fact that he exists is exciting. I missed out on the Jango Fett and Mandalorian figures so as soon as I see Grievous online I’ll be placing an order.

It’s nice to see a new addition to the Disney line as well. Simba is an obvious choice. With the inclusion of Zazu I wonder if that means he’ll be on the higher price range.

As usual I’ll be updating my lists and I’ll post as soon as I see them online.

Disney Mandalorian Toybox Figure

A new Star Wars figure!! The Mandalorian with The Child!!! Ahhh!!! (sorry for all the exclamation points)

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 Toybox Figure Re-released

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.
