We made it everyone! Today I'm concluding my write-ups on all the Pixar related Jakks Pacific Disney Tsum Tsum Mystery Stack Packs by giving you a detailed look at series five. If you missed my previous posts, I'd recommend checking those out before moving on (series two HERE, series three HERE and series four HERE). It feels good to be caught up with this collection and in "real time" now since series five here was just released early last month. It's the latest and, in my opinion, the greatest series so far!
The Pixar characters included in this series are Sulley and Boo from Monsters Inc., Hank (with mini Dory) and Nemo from Finding Dory and Jessie from Toy Story 2. The other 10 Disney characters in this set are (as seen on the front of the case below): Tick-Tock, Elsa, Peter Pan, Cruella de Vil, Mufasa, Pumbaa, King Louie, Barrel, Jack Skelington and King Triton.
I had a blast going around to all my local Target stores last month trying to feel for and find all these guys. It took some work, but it obviously paid off since I have everyone here I was looking for (again I was happy that I didn't need to go to eBay). The two "rares" in this series, namely Jessie and Boo, were the hardest ones to find. Though I was able to stumble across a bunch of full, untouched cases, the rare included almost every time was Jessie (if you didn't know, there's only one "rare" per case—so in this instance for example, you'll either find a case with Jessie or Boo but not both).
Jessie was relatively pretty easy to find once I started finding so many full cases. As far as Boo though, she was very difficult for me. I had searched for weeks with no luck... but one night I decided to take a drive to a Target I knew of a bit further away. What a spark of inspiration! I walked right to the Tsum section, found a full case, felt a few and almost immediately felt her big accessory. I knew right away I had found her. Yah, I could have just paid extra and got her online, but the hunt is half the fun of collecting for me!
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 Sulley's door station, Boo's Harryhausen's take-out box, Hank's coffee pot, Nemo's anemone and Jessie's TV, are made of a harder plastic. Each pack retails for $2.99.
Let's take a closer look at all of them out of their packages!
Hank & Dory
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 Lion King characters). That element adds a lot of fun to this collection.
Ok now it's that time to pick favorites! I'm going to have to choose Sulley (with that awesome mini door station featuring Boo's door) and Hank with Dory (love that coffee pot accessory; one of the more intricate releases thus far). Those are the two that made me interested in collecting these in the first place! All of them though are extremely cute and I'm impressed with all of the designs. They're all so well done and I'm so excited to see what the next series will bring.
Which ones are your favorites here and who do you hope to see in the future? When do you think we'll get a series six? Shout it out in the comments below!
