Coco: Complete Tsum Tsum Collection

pixar coco disney store tsum tsum collection

Tuesday, November 7th saw the release of the brand Coco Tsum Tsums collection at the Disney Store and! As a Tsum Tsum fan, I was so excited to see another Pixar based series come along—and just in time for when the film hits on the 22nd (just FOUR days away)!

In this collection there are seven fantastic characters: Dante, Miguel, Mama Imelda, Hector, Ernesto de la Cruz, Mama Coco and Pepita. Interestingly enough, there was also suppose to be a Non-Skeleton Miguel and a Skeleton Ernesto de la Cruz (seen HERE). I wonder what happened? Were they straight up cancelled or will they show up in some future collection? I guess time will tell. UPDATE—See end of post.

These plushies are part of the Tsum Tsum "mini" collection and are the standard 3 1/3" size. Like usual, they're soft with super great embroidered features and retail for $5.95 each.

Take a closer look at each one below!

Standouts for me include Dante (that tongue!) and the colorful Pepita—though they're all really well done. I also have to note the superb embroidered designs on the skeletons/Miguel and the great use of fabrics/materials across the board. So detailed! Lastly, I love that Mama Coco is included in this collection as this is the first piece of merchandise I've seen released of the character.

Pick these up at your local Disney Store before they're gone or snag them on their website right HERE. Have you purchased any of these yet? Which one is your favorite?

UPDATE 1/03/18:
Well guys, the mystery is solved! As mentioned in my original write-up above, a Non-Skeleton Miguel and a Skeleton Ernesto were originally revealed as part of the main Disney Store Coco Tsum Tsum collection, but never hit stores as part of the lineup. Surprise! While still no sign of Skeleton Ernesto in the US (turns out he's an exclusive to Mexico and the UK; not sure which stores, but he IS out there), the Non-Skeleton Miguel Tsum is now being sold exclusively at Toys R Us. Not only that, but he is accompanied by a previously unrevealed Tsum...Non-Skeleton/Alive Hector (complete with goatee)! How cool right? You can find both of these in the Tsum Tsum section of your local Toys R Us.

Once again, I love all the little touches/details with these guys. I especially love Miguel's look, notably his mole, the guitar on his back and the way his hood is up! I'm so thrilled that these ended up being produced and released...though it was in a strange roundabout way. I wonder what happened and why these got a random Toys R Us release after the fact?

And one question remains: Will Skeleton Ernesto ever get released in the US? Or will he remain a rarity for those outside Mexico and the UK? There is one currently on eBay, but the asking price is WAY to high.

I was finally able to get Skeleton Ernesto de la Cruz! My Coco Tsum Tsum collection is now officially complete. And no, he unfortunately was never released in the US. I forked out for this guy on eBay for about $30 and free shipping. I couldn't let there only be one missing piece to my collection, especially since the Tsum Tsum era seems to be coming to a close. Once again, this one was only available in Mexico (not sure which store though, honestly) and the UK (at a store called Clinton's—which is a card and gift shop). If you're in the UK, you're in luck since he's still available on the Clinton's website HERE!

I'm so happy I decided to go for this. He's awesome and will look so good with the other nine. I love his overall design and especially the shiny fabric used for his hat and outfit! Nice embroidered detailing as usual. Perfecto!
