This Toy R Us exclusive Toy Story "Cereal Dunk Woody" was released by Mattel in 2009 as part of their "Movie Collectibles" line of premium action figures. This was a very cool assortment of articulated figures featuring a unique selection of characters housed in "display worthy" collector packaging. For whatever reason though, I never picked them up back in the day and now I'm stuck trying to track them down on eBay (at least the select few that really interest me). This one was a must have.
In addition to Cereal Dunk Woody here, the line also included Rocky Gibraltar (which I showed Wednesday HERE), a standard Woody, Buzz Lightyear, "Bug Face" Buzz Lightyear, Hamm, Bo Peep and Jingle Joe.
Based on the classic interrogation scene in Sid's room (specifically after which when Woody dunks his head in a bowl of cereal to stop his burning forehead), this is definitely one of, if not the most unique Woody variation out there. There have been many Woody figures over the last 21 years, but this is the only version with fruit loops attached to his face. How funny right? Totally brilliant idea very well executed.
He is about 4.5" tall (with the hat), has articulation in his neck, arms, legs and ankles (none in the elbows, wrists or knees) and stands on his own without any balance issues. The detail in the sculpt is spot on and the paint application is really great. I love that they even made sure to include his burn mark! "I sure hope this isn't permanent..."
Lets take a closer look out of the package.
His hat is removable!
