Pixar Alien REMIX Tinny Figure (by Mattel) REVIEW

Pixar Alien REMIX tin toy Tinny Figure

Following my review of the Mattel Alien Remix Pizza Planet Driver from last month (FULL POST), here's the latest exclusive Remix character I couldn't resist due to its uniqueness—Tinny from Toy Story 4 (who, of course, was originally the star of Pixar's short film Tin Toy)! I'm still on the fence when it comes to committing to the whole Mattel Alien Remix line (since there are so many of them with possibly more to come in 2021), but I continue to cherry-pick my favorites. This one was a must since 1.) I collect anything Tinny from Tin Toy (look below to see my Tinny collection so far; I love any Pixar short film related merch) and 2.) It's a limited exclusive item (released only at the Disney Parks and Disney Stores/

No surprise here! He's absolute adorable; as cute as any of the other Remix Aliens— though I do have to say, Tinny translated particularly well into this whole "remix" concept. He's just under 4" tall, has a removable "one-man-band" piece (needs to be inserted into Tinny's back upon opening) and retails for for $8.99 (purchase at your local Disney Store, Disney Parks or HERE).

What are you thoughts? If you're an avid collector of the Pixar Alien Remix figures, you will not want to miss this one. Or you may even be like me, interested in this due to it being a bit more unique and/or that you're a fan of the short film. Either way, I highly recommend this for your Pixar collection! It's the perfect display piece for kids or adults, especially when presented with all the other Remix figures.
