Toy Story 4: Amazon Exclusive Forky & Karen Beverly Figures (by Mattel)

Mattel's amazingly fun and diverse range of Toy Story 7" action figures continues with their latest offering, Karen Beverly (or "Knifey" or "Forky's girlfriend" as many call her) from the end credits of Toy Story 4!! I've been so excited for this release ever since I saw the reveal in person earlier this year at the New York Toy Fair. I had heard she wasn't going to be released until the fall, so it was such a pleasant surprise last week when I stumbled upon her IN STOCK on Amazon as an Amazon exclusive! Karen comes in a 2-Pack with Forky in Amazon's signature closed box style packaging, instead of the standard open blister packaging you see in-stores (in fact, the original Amazon listing's photo was an open style package as seen HERE; that has since been updated).

The box, compared to the ones released last year on Amazon, now features the new for 2020 "PIXAR" banner and the Toy Story 25th Anniversary logo. It looks clean and fresh! The Forky figure is the same exact figure that's been released many times since last year in different multi-packs, so I'll be focusing in on just Karen today in this post.

Note: If you missed it, check out my complete write-up on Mattel's Toy Story 4 7" action figure collection HERE and some more of this year's 25 Anniversary edition figures HERE. This has got to be one of my all-time favorite toy lines!

Here they are inside the box! Both Forky and Karen are hard plastic figures with bendy arms for posability. The details are absolutely fantastic. Karen especially looks SO perfect—she's incredibly movie accurate! The only detail I see missing from both of them is Bonnie's name written under their sticks, but it's not a huge deal at all.

Forky is just over 4" tall and Karen is just under 5" tall. The set retails for $12.99.

Check out my loose images—it doesn't get much better! I am so incredibly happy with this release. After seeing the film, I hoped Mattel would make this character, but I wasn't going to hold my breath (I understood she was an obscure character with very little screen time during the end credits). I'm so thrilled and impressed that they went for it!

Below are the images I posted on my Instagram this morning. I was really happy with how they came out, so I figured I share them here too :)

I... don't know.

This is a must-have for all Toy Story collectors! You won't want to miss this set. Even though you probably already have the Forky figure, getting this 2-pack for Karen alone is worth it. I've included a direct link to purchase below!
