Arriving in late December will be both figures in B@earbrick form as part of the Medicom B@earbrick Series 21. Each figure in the collection will retail for $4.99. In January, Medicom will release the Daft Punk 400% B@rbrick 2-pack which will retail for $199.99 and the Daft Punk Kubrick 2-pack for $19.99. Medicom will also release 12″ Real Action Hero (RAH) figures of the electronic duo in April, 2011 for $229.99 each.
Daft Punk scored the original motion picture soundtrack for TRON: Legacy which is available for immediate download in MP3 format at Amazon.com for a limited-time offer of just $3.99.
DisneyStore.com has made Jessie (Item #200784P), Mr. Potato Head (Item #200350P) and Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear / Lotso (Item #201311P) from the Thinkway Toys Toy Story Collection available for pre-order. According to the site, Mr. Potato Head will be available to own on May 12 while Jessie and Lotso will become available June 1. As is standard with the Toy Story Collection, the toys are all described as film-accurate and come with a certificate of authenticity.
- Mr. Potato Head stands 8″ tall and is completely interactive with removable facial features (includes two sets including his angry eyes). Press his hat to hear and see classic Mr. Potato Head expressions or remove his mouth to silence him. Loud noises cause Mr. Potato Head to literally explode, sending his pieces everywhere.
- Jessie is 14″ tall and speaks 33 phrases including classic sayings when the string in her back is pulled. She’s voice responsive and can even tell when you raise your voice at her (which you probably won’t want to do).
- Finally, Lotso is 13″ tall and speaks over 45 phrases. The squeezably soft (and strawberry-scented) bear reacts to hugs and tickles.
We had a chance to check out these and other Toy Story Collection offerings earlier this year so we invite you to check out our report and photo gallery in parts one and two of the report. Then head over to the DisneyStore.com Toy Story Boutique and pre-order these amazing collectibles while they’re available.
Also available for pre-order is a very mysterious set of Toy Story 3 Kubricks from Medicom Toy in Japan. The set, which features Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jessie, Zurg, Green Army Man, Alien and not-oft-mentioned Lotso (pictured, right) is often quoted around the web at a cost around $250, raising a few eyebrows, but Urban Collector is currently listing the set for about $190 and notes that it’s actually a display tray of 24 pcs as the items are sold in blind packs. The Toy Story 3 Kubricks are expected to ship in June.
Just spotted earlier today on Big Bad Toy Store (although other importers are likely to carry them) is this set of 2 7″ tall Ultra Design Figures of Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter from Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland by Medicom.
Expected to ship in 2010, the set will run you about $35.
Now if something a little larger was what you had in mind, drink this one in. Medicom is also releasing a 12″ Mad Hatter doll which is sure to grab any passerby’s attention. Pricing for this crazy puppy will run you roughly $150-$200 depending on whom you buy it from.
In a move that’s hopefully a sign of really good things to come, D23 Members are now able to purchase this Medicom ‘TRON Mickey’ vinyl collectible that was previously available either only in Japan or through importers. Standing proud at 5″, the best news of all is that DisneyShopping.com is selling him for a price of $54.95 which is surprisingly lower than what any of the importers have charged for him. He’s already proven to be popular and quickly sold out of stock elsewhere, so grab him while you can here.
End of line.
