‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Toys and Plush First Look (Video, Photos)
Earlier this week, Disney Consumer Products held its annual holiday preview showcase in which it presents many of the new and exciting products that will be released during the fall and holiday seasons. While we hope to present to you just some of the great things you can expect to find on the shelves at Disney Store and other popular retailers later this year, we’d like to start of slow by focusing on a few specific collections, starting with toys inspired by Wreck-It Ralph which opens on November 2, 2012.
Perhaps known best to Disney fans as one of the few original licensees of Pixar’s Toy Story, Thinkway Toys presents talking figures for both Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) and Vanellope Von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman). Ralph, which you can see being demo’d by Keith in the video below, features two buttons that control his arms. When pressed individually, Ralph is in Friendly Mode and speaks friendly phrases, while pressing both buttons simultaneously puts him in Wrecking Mode and he speaks accordingly. Not quite as physical, the Vanellope figure includes peppermint candy hair extensions and a hairbrush. Both figures include over 30 sayings each in their original movie voices, will be available in October and will retail for $44.99.
Also featured in the video are a prototype of the Wreck-It Ralph hands which recite lines from the film upon mild impact.
The rest of the shown collection consists namely of plush: Fix-It Felix Jr (voiced by Jack McBrayer), an 8-bit rendition of Wreck-It Ralph and many of the secondary characters from Vanellope’s world of ‘Sugar Rush:’ Adorabeezle Winterpop, Candle Head, Crumbelina Dicamello, Fluggerbutter, Gloyd Orangeboar, Jubileena, Minty Zaki, Snowanna Rainbeau, Swizzle ‘The-Swizz’ Malarkey and Taffyta Muttonfudge.
