Toy Story: Sarge & Helicopter "Minis" Vehicle Set (by Mattel)

The Toy Story "Minis" line from Mattel continues with a fun new vehicle set release—Sarge & Helicopter! Once again (just like the "Buddy Packs" tank vehicle I reviewed recently), this helicopter never appears in any of the Toy Story films or shorts. It's a design that was completely made up by Mattel, but regardless, I thought it was a fun addition to the line and had to pick it up! I haven't spotted this in-store yet, but I know it has been found at Kroger/Smith's stores in the US and has been available in Mexico for a while now. I grabbed mine on eBay for around $10. UPDATE: It's also now available on Walmart's website HERE for $10.99

The "Minis" vehicle sets were first introduced in 2017 (see post HERE) and then continued in 2019 with the release of Toy Story 4 (see post HERE). This has been the only new Toy Story vehicle release in 2020, as the others (seen on the back of the package) are repacks of previously released vehicles.
Check it all out in more detail below! The Sarge figure is a repack of the original blind bag release, but the helicopter is brand new. Both blades on the vehicle can rotate and Sarge can stand securely in the cockpit. The helicopter measures roughly 3.5" long and just under 2.5" tall. 

Let me know your thoughts down in the comments! Have you spotted this at the store or did you have to resort to eBay like I did? Any other Toy Story or other Pixar related vehicles you'd like to see get the "Minis" treatment?
