It’s all Pixar, all the time in today’s toy photo post! I’ll kick this off with the Revoltech Mr. Incredible figure. This is my first Revoltech piece, and it’s pretty impressive. It’s got tons of articulation, two interchangeable faces, two pairs of hands and a tiny Omnidroid with its own sets of swappable claws. Not to mention the accessory that makes it all worthwhile - a display base (and an articulated one at that)! It’s not all that big, but the features and extra parts really pack a wallop. The blister pack has some nice artwork, and there’s a glossy handout that features more characters from Revoltech, but otherwise the packaging is fairly status quo.
Next up is the brand new Toy Story Trixie build-a-figure from the Disney Store. Anyone who’s been buying toys for a while probably knows what a “build-a-figure” is: a manufacturer packs one part of a character into each blister of a set of toys. Naturally, the plan is to rope shoppers into buying all of them in order to get a ‘free’ toy (or at least, an extra one). Usually, the build-a-figure is a character that might not be practical to sell on its own, either due to size or obscurity. That can be an asset, as collectors (like me) will often want a secondary character! I’m assuming this toy came straight from the digital files, so the model accuracy is quite good. The articulation is as elaborate as you’d expect the character itself to be, and while the paint work isn’t mind-blowing, it more than does the job. It’s a good, solid, no-frills toy - but there’s no egregious flaws, either.
One of of the characters you’ll have to buy in order to get a Trixie part is the Hawaiian Vacation Alien. Sure, it could be better - the skirt and necklace are mostly stiffly molded clumps for safety reasons - but it is on-model and pretty appealing. The articulation isn’t really accurate, but it’s nice that it has some joints to bump up the play value. The blister packs for the Hawaiian Vacation line are standard stuff - the designs don’t really jump off the shelf, and they’re probably not something you’d be tempted to keep.
I bought my Revoltech Mr. Incredible for $40, and it looks like you can get one at megapopcherry.com for $35 +shipping. The Hawaiian Vacation Toy Story figures are selling at the Disney Store website for $12.50 + shipping each (or $10.42 + shipping each if you count Trixie). Happy shopping!
