Earlier last year ShopDisney launched the Toybox Figure range which are poseable figures of various different Disney/Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel characters, with a similar aesthetic to the Disney Infinity game artwork. Most figures were sold individually or sometimes in sets of two with one main figure and a smaller complimentary one etc.
Towards the end of the year, they also started selling multipacks of figures such as an Incredibles set, and a Star Wars set that included Han Solo, Chewbacca, and a Millenium Falcon. As I said, I already had the individual packs of Woody, Buzz and Jessie, so to be honest, I was pretty annoyed when they released a Toy Story set that included all of them but also Bullseye, who you can only get if you buy the set ? It was pretty pricey so there was no way I was going to buy it at full price just to get one figure I needed, but I waited and waited for the sale and finally it got reduced down enough that I gave in and bought it.
This is the boxed set, and Bullseye is the only new addition. Woody still comes with the boot and snake (the snake is meant to pop out the boot when you press a button on the side but unsurprisingly, it doesn’t work, just as it didn’t in the individual packs), Jessie has her lasso and Buzz just comes with himself.
I haven’t shown you Woody, Jessie and Buzz in detail as I’ve already written a blog post about them previously but unfortunately I have realised it’s on my old blog, so I will re-upload it here soon. However, the figures in this set are pretty much the same as the invidial ones. The main difference I have found with the ones in this set, is that Jessie is even worse ? Her legs are terrible. She can’t stand at all and they are in a really weird position. Her joints don’t work well at all, they really may as well have just made her a completely static figure. Still, she looks pretty and the detail in terms of paint work is ok. I think this Woody stands a little better than my original Woody though so that’s a good result! Buzz is pretty much exactly the same.
So, let’s talk about Bullseye! He’s really cute in this style and has a really sweet little face. He’s quite nice and chunky but although you can move his legs a bit, the posing isn’t exactly amazing. You can bend his legs very slightly at the knees and move his legs slightly forwards and backwards etc. His head can turn from side to side a little. As I say, not brilliant but better than Jessie and you can position him fairly nicely in photos etc. As you can see from the photos, Woody can’t really sit on him properly but that doesn’t surprise me, I wasn’t expecting that. You can kind of make it look ok in photos, like Woody is raising himself off the saddle a bit, but it’s not a close fit.
The pleasing thing about Bullseye, is that he looks quite cute paired up with Herocross Woody! The size and style works quite well together so they will be nice to use together until the actual Herocross Bullseye comes out.
I am pleased I have managed to add Bullseye to my collection of these figures, and the price of the set is ok at the sale price, but I don’t think they are worth the full price; certainly not out the box anyway. I love the look of these figures but they are a little disappointing out of the box. I have some of the other Toybox figures and unfortunately I would say the Toy Story ones are the most disappointing out of them all, which is a shame as obviously it’s my favourite, but hopefully as the more recent ones I have (like Moana and Maui) are much better, it might mean that they are working on improving future releases etc. There has already been a teaser of a Bo Peep one coming this year, so fingers crossed she is more of the standard of Moana and Maui.
