Disney's online store has just launched a big toy sale, with a bunch of items up to 30% off. I've put a little list together of some items that are now reduced in price:
Large Simba plush. There's also a big Nemo one on sale...

PopVinyl.net has reported that Funko has surreptitiously released a Pop! Frozen 3-pack featuring Elsa, Olaf, and an over-sized Marshmallow as a Walmart exclusive. While Olag and Elsa are certainly nothing new, this is the fir...
One of the biggest surprises to come out of Wonder Festival Summer was the reveal of Good Smile Company's Nendoroid Elsa from Frozen. Photos weren't allowed and absolutely nobody broke that rule to sneak a photo, so I can only imagine what it looked like. So only from what I heard, Good Smile Company had a prototype of Elsa holding a snowflake and accompanied by Olaf.
Now Good Smile Company has released promo pictures of Nendoroid Elsa all in color so we can see what she finally looks like. Frozen fans will love her because she's wearing her blue, glittery dress, holding that snowflake, and Olaf is still with her. Not sure if she's going to come with more accessories, but it's evident that she will have at least two interchangeable faces.
Information on this figure is still unknown, no release date info or pre-order info. Still, if they're releasing promo images now, it has to be soon. December or January would be a perfect release date, just saying.
Funko has released some official images of its upcoming Pop! figures from two classic Disney films. The Jungle Book's Mowgli, Shere Khan, and Kaa as well as Robin Hood's Robin Hood, Prince John, and Sir Hiss (no relation to King Hiss) are slated for release this month.
While I can't say that I was a fan of either film as a kid, Prince John, Kaa, Shere Khan, and Sir Hiss (see gallery) are adorable. I'm somewhat less found of the titular Robin Hood, but he still looks pretty neat.
Expect to see these guys on shelves near you in the near future, if they aren't there already. (Especially if you've already bought them. Then you'd just need to look over to see them on the shelves.)
The first highlight (or highfright? ...no, the card definitely reads highlight) is the Hitchhiking Ghosts 3-pack (US$20). These glow-in-the-dark figures were originally produced (and sold separately?) a good many years ago, so this is a neat second (or however many) chance to buy them. While not a spooktacular deal, it seems an improvement over having to go on the aftermarket.
The second highlighted collectible is a Jim Shore-designed Organ Figurine (US$75). The hand-painted, stone resin item features a removable organ player and his organ, which fans might recall from the Haunted Mansion's ballroom (I don't remember it, but it's been maybe 15 years since I've been to Disney).
Both items (and more) are currently available on the Disney Store website (and presumably at retail Disney Stores as well).
After some 20 years of Mattel doing Disney Princess figures and dolls it looks like things are changing. Hasbro has announced that Disney has pulled the Princess license away from Mattel (the current number two toy maker in t...
VinylMation World has posted an image of an upcoming Hot Topic-exclusive flocked Pop! Simba. However, he's not the only upcoming Hot Topic exclusive as the retail chain will also be receiving a (far less exciting) black & white Pop! Loki.
Although I'm not the biggest Simba fan, I'm excited to see flocked Pop!s at normal retailers rather than just being convention or online exclusives (acknowledging that B&N *did* carry some SDCC exclusives but I missed my chance at a reasonably priced flocked Rocket Raccoon because I learned about that information too late). Hopefully this is the start of a trend where we'll see a lot of other Pop!s with flocked variants as well, including The Lion King's Scar, The Jungle Book's Shere Khan, etc.
Disney's next animated film, Big Hero 6, arrives in theaters November 7 and their merchandising department has finally started to release toys of the characters at the Disney Store. If you mosey on over to Disney Store Online...
MarvelShop.com has listed a Marvel Select Spider-Man vs Electro 2-pack which features both characters in their more classic-looking costumes. The set was showcased in a preview gallery on Marvel.com.
The set, which features what appears to an all-new MS Electro, is a timed exclusive available first through the Marvel Shop (or ShopMarvel) before also appearing in the online Disney Store starting September 8th before hitting retail Disney Stores some time after.
Diamond Select Toys was unable to do a Marvel Select Amazing Spider-Man 2 Electro, which makes this next best thing a somewhat opportune collectible to release right around the time the movie has become available on DVD and Bluray. While it's something of a shame that this pretty solid Electro is 2-packed with a comic Spidey, it helps to drive home the movie connection.
The 2-pack is available right now for US$50. Be sure to check out the gallery for additional images.
