With the release of Toy Story 4, it is no surprise that one of the most exciting aspects of the franchise returning to theaters is all of the wonderful merchandise headed to stores. There is an incredible depth in the options of toys that are available, from those that tie-in with the latest film to others that celebrate characters and moments from previous films. [Read more…]
Pixar films have a great collection of villains, from Stinky Pete in Toy Story 2 to Hopper in A Bug’s Life to Lotso in Toy Story 3. The heroes, though, are usually the ones who get the most love (and merchandise), unsurprising because they are who the audience is meant to identify with. Still, it is nice to give the villains some love at times. Given that there is no Pixar feature film this year to release a Vinylmation line around, the Disney Store is taking advantage and releasing a series featuring Pixar villains. Get a first look at the figures after the break! (Updated with a look at the chaser.)
The D23 Expo officially kicks off on Friday, as fans will have their first opportunity to walk the halls of the Anaheim Convention Center. We had the chance, though, to get an early look at various sections of the show Thursday night as part of a media preview. The Disney Parks and Resorts pavilion teased new Star Wars and Avatar-themed lands at Walt Disney World and highlighted the cutting-edge technology that make the Disney theme parks run, while the Disney Store and Disney Consumer Products pavilion provided us with a look at some great Disney/Pixar merchandise. After the break, find over 100 photos that will take you through all three of these areas of the D23 Expo!
The D23 Expo runs from Friday through Sunday, celebrating the worlds of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. As a result, there will be a host of exclusives offered at booths throughout the show floor and at the Dream Store and Disney Store. The exclusives often create an air of excitement due to their unavailability outside of the show. Their limited nature also means attendees have to make their way to their respective locations in order to ensure they do not sell out. We are excited to reveal a brand new line of Disney∙Pixar products that will make their debut at the show’s Disney Store. Find details and images after the break!
