Monsters Inc.: Funko Pint Size Heroes

In the fall of 2016, Funko introduced yet another lineup into their large family of pop culture collectible vinyl characters... Pint Size Heroes! This line, though pretty short-lived, followed in the footsteps of Funko's other successful lines such as their [insanely popular] "POP!" figures, Mystery Minis and Dorbz (to name just a few). Ultimately these are basically the same shape and style as Dorbz, just much smaller and in blind bags. Pint Size Heroes are SUPER tiny— about 1.5" in size.

I had been eyeing these Monsters Inc. Pint Size Heroes for some time and finally decided to track them down on eBay. These were originally available at Hot Topic Stores (and I believe Walmart?) in the Disney Series 2 blind bags (you can see the full set of 12 in the press image below). And yes, I definitely still need to find Wall·E & Eve! The only other Pixar characters that were made in this Pint Size style were Buzz, Zurg and an Alien (which I have and were available in Series 1).

The three Monsters Inc. inspired characters in this series are Mike, Boo and Sulley—and they look monstrously adorable! I'm so glad I was able to finally pick them up. Check 'em out in closer detail...

Original retail price for each blind bag is between $3.99 and $5.90 (depending on where you get them). I got all three on eBay last week for about $17, which wasn't too bad at all. They're now displayed on one of my shelves in my Pixar home office and look seriously great.

If you're a fan of collectible Disney figures, blind bags and/or Funko products, then these (along with the rest of this series) just might be for you. As Funko says, they may be small, but they pack a punch of personality! Did you ever pick up any of these Disney Pint Size Heroes? Which are your favorites? Do you wish the Pint Size Heroes line had continued? 

Sound off your thoughts in the comments below and be sure to stay tuned for more from my Pixar collection all week long.
