Soul: Joe Gardner & 22 Action Figure 2-Pack (Mattel's 7" Collection)

 *Gifted/Free Product* A big thanks to Mattel for sending this my way!

Mattel's signature 7" action figure line continues under the overarching PIXAR banner with a brand new release inspired by Soul—Joe Gardner (Jazz Performance Suit) & 22! At the start of last year, Mattel began expanding their awesome Disney·Pixar 7" action figure collection (which began in 2019 with Toy Story 4) to other Pixar films—such as Monsters Inc., The Incredibles, Wall·E, Onward, Coco and Brave (with hopefully more to come). I'm thrilled that Soul is now represented in this line, though I would have loved if a few more of the main characters were included. I'll take what I can get though and this is a wonderful set of figures. They look absolutely fantastic! 

I saw these figures in person for the first time clear back in February last year at the 2020 New York Toy Fair and I was looking forward to them even back then. At the time, they would have been released within just a couple months later since that was before the film and merchandise got pushed back.

Joe is actually almost 8" tall, so it's one of the taller figures in this line for sure. He has some really nice articulation, an extremely well done sculpt/character likeness and a removable hat. 22 stands at about 2" tall and looks outstanding as well. I love her little stand (to give her a floating effect and displayability) and her translucent/sparkly sculpt. It's all so well done.

 As with the rest of Mattel's 7" figure line, this figure is perfect for play or display. No matter your age—if you're a kid or an adult collector—if you love Soul, you'll definitely want to pick this one up! This 2-pack is hitting Target stores right now (online HERE) or you can purchase it on Amazon using the direct affiliate link below. Retail price is $9.99.
