Toy Story That Time Forgot: Action Figure Collection

On December 2nd, 2014, Disney/Pixar released their second fantastic Toy Story holiday television special on ABC; Toy Story That Time Forgot. This 30 minute "Christmas" short (about 22 minutes without commercials) followed the successful "Halloween" Toy Story of Terror, which premiered in the Fall of 2013.

Here is the official Toy Story That Time Forgot synopsis:
During a post-Christmas play date, the gang find themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures ever turn out to be dangerously delusional. It's all up to Trixie, the triceratops, if the gang hopes to return to Bonnie's room in this Toy Story That Time Forgot. 

To coincide with the film's TV debut last month, Disney/Pixar and Mattel released an outstanding collection of action figures based on some of the most memorable characters from That Time Forgot!

These were released as Walmart exclusives (see the television commercial HERE) yet have proven to be somewhat difficult to find in many areas. I was lucky enough to track them down early on, but I've been to two other states since (and many Walmart stores) and have yet to see them again. Interestingly, despite being advertised as being "Only at Walmart", they are also currently for sale on the Disney Store's website and If you're an eBay type of person, visit this direct link to purchase: Toy Story That Time Forgot Action Figure Collection

While these figures aren't the same size as the "Battesaurs" seen in the TV special (why they didn't make a full size collection of them beats me), they are still very, very cool and nicely made. These are about 5" tall, are "fully poseable" and come with some sweet accessories (armor, weapons, etc.). There are eight figures total.

Lets get to checkin' these out!

 Battleopolis 3-Pack

First off...the Battleopolis 3-pack! What makes this 3-pack a must have is that "The Cleric" figure is exclusive to this set. He was without a doubt one of the biggest highlights from the film, so it's great to have him here - and with the accurate rolling wheels as well! Unlike The Cleric though, the ever so cool Reptillus Maximus and Buzz Lightyear with Battle Armor (not seen in the film, but works for me) were released outside this set in single packs.

Next up, the single packs:

Battle Armor Trixie

Card back seen below (same for all the single packs):

 Battle Armor Woody
(like the Buzz figure, this design is not seen in the film)

 Battle Armor Rex

 Raptorian Guard

And last but definitely not least...

(deluxe sized figure with opening mouth)

I'm just so excited to have this amazing set of action figures. The Pixar shorts and TV specials rarely have any related merchandise released, so this is a real treat. A big thanks to my parents for hooking me up with them for Christmas! 

Would you like to see a wave two of these figures released? I really hope so! Here's who I'd still like to see made: Brutes (all three types), Elisian Guard (female guard, left side of image), Ray-Gon, the Acolytes (The Cleric's three minons), Angel Kitty and of course the Battle Arena Playset. How cool would that be? I also wish that they would release full-size figures like the ones seen in the film, but I know that's highly unlikely.

Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by today's post and be sure to check back daily for more items from my Pixar collection! Please let me know if you have any comments or questions.
