It’s like a mix between Voltron and the Magic Kingdom. In a collaboration between Tamashii Nations and Disney, some classic characters will be turned into transforming and combining “Gattai” robots. The Mickey and Friends Cho Gattai King Chogokin Robo Action Figure features die-cast parts and articulation. 7 individual robots make up the mecha including Jet Mickey, Sky Minnie, Diver Donald, Aqua Daisy, Land Goofy, Ace Willie, Dash Pluto and Kennel. Once combined, the King Robot will stand just a little over 8-inches high. Dream Stick and Magical Mirror accessories also come in the set, along with 6 original-illustration postcard presentations as a limited first-production issue bonus. This will land in the state this May or you can pre-order it here.
You may need to bring a little extra cash with you on your next trip to a Walt Disney theme park. Hasbro will soon release two new Star Tours action figure sets featuring the droids from the ride. New figures include a blue Signal Droid, red RX Droid, a G2 Droid, and the very first appearance of the Seeker Droid. C-3PO and the Imperial Sky Trooper will also appear in the sets. These packs launch in May at Walt Disney World- Hollywood Studios during STAR WARS Weekends and will then be available at Walt Disney World stores in Florida and Disneyland Resort stores in California shortly after.
It’s been 60 years since the Walt Disney Company released an animated movie featuring a magical boy who never wanted to grow up as he battled an evil pirate captain. With the new Peter Pan Blu-Ray in stores now, the Disney Store has teamed up with Diamond Select Toys to release a new Minimate series based on the film. Two boxed sets featuring Pete, Cubby, Tootle and Nibs along with Michael, John, Captain Hook and Tinkerbell will include a flying base to pose the figs above the ground. Also there will be a Jolly Roger set with Wendy and Smee. Each Minimate figure stands 2 inches tall with 14 points of articulation. Look for all three sets to arrive at Disney Stores and on DisneyStore.com in early March.
NECA has picked up the movie license to Disney’s The Lone Ranger and has a couple of action figure lines planned for Tonto, Silver and the masked hero. The 7-inch line will sport multiple points of articulation and accessories, while the 1/4 scale line figures will stand 18-inches high with 20 points of articulation. These will ride into toy stores in May.
