Welcome everyone! If you're just joining me now, over the last two days I've been taking a look at all the Pixar related Disney Tsum Tsum Mystery Packs by Jakks Pacific—which I just started collecting over the last month or so. On Monday I introduced the collection and gave you a look at series two (be sure to check out that post first) and yesterday I continued on with series three. Today I'm excited to show you all the fun characters featured in series four!
The Pixar characters included in this series are Joy and Sadness from Inside Out, Lotso from Toy Story 3 and Bullseye from Toy Story 2. The other 11 Disney characters in this set are (as seen on the back of the package below): Shock, Timon, Lock, Lilo, Goofy, Perry, Zero, Tigger, Rapunzel, Ursula and Baymax. This series arrived this past November but, again, I've only just started my personal collection of these recently.
Luckily (and surprisingly) I was still able to track all these down in stores and didn't have to go to eBay for any of them. It took a few trips to multiple Targets in my area but I was able to do it! The only one that took a little while to find was Lotso (since he's actually one of the "rare" Tsums in this series meaning he's not in every case).
Like usual, all the Tsums Tsums in this series are about 1.5" in size and are made of a soft vinyl/plastic material. The display pieces (which are the best part), such as Joy and Sadness's Headquarters stands, Lotso's dump truck and Bullseye's record player, are made of a harder plastic. Each pack retails for $2.99.
Let's open them up and check out all the details! Joy and Sadness's stands require some assembly, but it only took a minute or two. As far as Bullseye's record player, the bottom half just has to be snapped into the top half. Loto's truck is a single piece.
To reiterate, Jakks Pacific also makes [non-blind] three packs and nine packs of these little plastic Tsums (featuring many more characters in a variety of different sizes), but they don't come with any display accessories. I'm personally gonna pass on those and just stick with these mystery packs (to keep things simple), but I wanted to throw it out there in case any of you were interested.
I also wanted to note that all the Tsums of varying sizes, as well as all the accessories, are stackable (as demonstrated on the front of the case box using the Little Mermaid characters). That element adds a lot of fun to this collection!
It's really hard to pick a favorite in this series, but I guess I've narrowed it down to Joy (love both her and Sadness's set up with the spinning sorting wheels and memory orbs) and Bullseye (the Woody's Roundup record player is just too adorable). What are your favorites?
If you're looking to track any of these blind bag characters down at this point, checking current eBay listings HERE is your easiest/best bet (though, as mentioned, some are still floating around in stores if you wanna test your chances).
I'm excited to finish up the collection of these tomorrow, so be sure to check back to see series five!
