I stumbled across some Disney/Pixar toys from Thinkway at TRU today. They appeared to be primarily from The Incredibles, Finding Nemo and Wall-E movies. The figures came in a 6" scale, as well as 3.5" and 2" scale, and there was an assortment of plush.

The line is a TRU exclusive, but you can get a look at them at the Thinkway website.

The figures looked really great in person, with good sculpting and paint and clean packaging. The 6" figures looked to be on par with the DC Total Heroes line, but priced at $22, which seemed a bit much for the level of detailing, articulation and accessories.

I might get some of the 2" figures, which are stylized and look fun.

I saw these at TRU today as well.

The 2" figures are very reminiscent of Mattel's Action League figures. So much so that I'd swear the Mr. Terrific is using their molds. Its enough to start making me miss them all over again.

I thought the same thing! I want Mr. Incredible just because of his resemblance to the Action League figures. But the prices for TRU exclusives in Manhattan are too high. I might bundle a few items at TRU.com instead.

I saw these a couple of weeks ago-- I swear most of them just look like repacks of previously produced toys..but this is going just by memory...

Some of them are.

This is the first time they are all in unifying Pixar branded packaging though.
