If fellow Disney pirate Jack Sparrow were ever to encounter Jake from Disney Junior’s ‘Jake and the Never Land Pirates,’ he might provide the following sage advice: there should be a captain in there somewhere. This summer, Jake will get his day as he gets a promotion and a brand new ship in an upcoming television event. Titled ‘Mystery of the Mighty Colossus,’ Fisher-Price has previewed an 2-feet tall playset of the Mighty Colossus featuring a figurine of the new Captain Jake. A gallery of photos of the playset, previewed at the International Toy Fair, is embedded below
At the International Toy Fair currently being presented at New York City, we had the opportunity to visit the TOMY Toys showroom to check out some of the first Disney toys being introduced by the North American arm of the company. In addition to ‘Miles From Tomorrowland,’ which we had already previewed here, we were able to check out prototypes of items being released in support of Pixar’s Inside Out. Although photographs were strictly forbidden for both Pixar lines, we can share a few details of the upcoming line of figures, playsets and plush.
Just ahead of tomorrow’s start of the International Toy Fairy in New York City, Hasbro has released a first look at its upcoming line of fashion dolls based on this year’s Disney Channel Original Movie, ‘Descendants.’ Pictures here are Mal and Evie, daughters of Maleficent and the Evil Queen respectively.
Available in stores in Fall 2015, the dolls are based off their unique look in the telefilm and each will come an iconic locket and sticker. They will retail for $19.99 each.
With an official announcement expected later today by Disney Store North America, Disney Store France has already shared a first look at the upcoming limited edition 17″ Anna, Elsa and Kristoff dolls being released next month in honor of the Frozen Fever short being released in theaters alongside Disney’s Cinderella.
Along with the image seen here, edition sizes were announced along with the number being reserved for Europe. While Anna and Elsa will be an edition size of 5000 each, with 1000 of each being reserved for European sales, Kristoff is a much smaller edition size of just 3500, but also with 1000 reserved for Europe, only 2500 remain for the rest of the globe.
Ahead of the International Toy Fair, which kicks off this weekend in New York City, TOMY has previewed its upcoming selection of merchandise based on the new Disney Junior animated series, ‘Miles from Tomorrowland.’ Among the items pictured in the gallery below are:
- Basic figures (Galactic Miles, Superstellar Miles, Merc, Pipp, Loretta and Phoebe, 6.99 each), which glow when placed in the Stellosphere Charging Chamber and come with an accessory
In an unprecedented move, Disney Store has launched several day-and-date merchandise items for the new Disney Junior animated series, ‘Miles from Tomorrowland,’ which officially premieres today.
Fourteen items in all have been released including plush for Miles, his robo-ostrich pal Merc, Callisto family friend Blodger and Tomorrowland Transit Authority agent Watson and Crick. Other items include a figurine play set, a Miles role-play outfit and several clothing items.
Earlier today, LEGO Ideas announced that the LEGO version of Wall-E that was submitted to its community for consideration to become an actual LEGO production set has been approved. After reaching 10,000 community supporters back in July of 2014 — which in it of itself is no small feat — the proposed model was then passed on to the review board to consider the feasibility of the project, which of course would include Disney’s own blessings. The announcement today, which also included a ‘Dr. Who’ themed set among several other applicants that didn’t make the cut, confirmed that LEGO Wall-E will soon find its way on the shelf, although LEGO says it’s too soon to share any further details about the project. Hopefully the model will be on display at LEGO’s collector’s event at New York Toy Fair which takes place later this month as they did with the Ghostbusters Ecto-One set, another LEGO Ideas graduate.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has released several new hi-res images from the upcoming short Frozen Fever which can be found in our gallery embedded below. Unlike the stills released earlier today by USA Today, these are in higher resolution and not cropped.
In Frozen Fever, it’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk.
Fans and collectors of Disney Store’s irresistible — and not to mention stackable — Tsum Tsum are no doubt aware that new collections are released the first Tuesday of every month as part of Disney Store’s monthly ‘Tsum Tsum Tuesday’ event. We are pleased to announce that following the release of the 101 Dalmations collection in January and the Cinderella collection tomorrow, the Frozen collection will be the next Tsum Tsum Tuesday set to be released on Tuesday, March 3, 2015.
