Mattel Pixar Alien Remix *NEW* 2021 WAVE 1 REVIEW!

Hey everyone and welcome back to the blog! Today I’m taking a look at the newest wave of Pixar Alien Remix figures from Mattel, which includes the first four of many more coming in 2021. If you've been following along with me for some time, I'm sure you know all about the Alien Remix collection as I've covered it pretty extensively—but if not, here's a little recap: in short, last year to celebrate Pixar and 25 years since Toy Story, Mattel (and many other companies such as Funko, Beast Kingdom, ShopDisney and so many more), made figures, apparel, pins, plush toys and other merchandise featuring Toy Story aliens dressed up as different Pixar characters. I ended up favoring the Mattel line and just stuck with collecting those ones since I knew, if I were to start collecting Alien Remix merch, that I would have to draw the line somewhere. If you wanna learn more about this complete assortment, be sure to check out my original blog post HERE.

Anyway, I was able to find this new wave of 2021 figures not too long ago at Target for $5.99 each and, as you can see here, they actually come in new, totally redesigned packaging. Gone are the rocket ship shaped boxes and instead we now have these more basic rectangle window boxes. I personally preferred last year’s rocket ship design, but it honestly doesn’t make much difference to me since I open them up to be displayed anyway. If you’re an in-box collector though, the change may bother you some. Let me know what you think.

Last year in 2020 there were 16 numbered characters and one unnumbered Comic Con exclusive Pizza Planet Truck set with delivery driver. So here we are now in 2021 and the same number system continues; in this wave there’s Duke Caboom (from Toy Story 4) who is number 17, Flik (from A Bug’s Life) is number 18, Sadness (from Inside Out) is number 19 and Syndrome (from The Incredibles) is number 20.

Let's take a closer look at them out of their boxes! They all look outstanding and it in perfectly with the rest of the collection.

Well that about covers it for my review of this first 2021 wave—and for all you Mattel Alien Remix collectors out there—I hope you watch and enjoy my video review below which includes a SNEAK PEEK at many more Mattel Alien Remix figures still to come later this year.
