Disney Store Exclusive Star Wars Toy Box – Chewbacca & Han Solo Figures Review

 

The Disney Store is now offering their Star Wars Toy Box figures of Chewbacca and Han Solo, and both are inspired from their Disney Infinity game likeness. Both of these figures are priced at $12.95 each, and comes with accessories. Recently, the Disney Store announced that they are expanding to oversized characters including The Hulkbuster, as well as vehicles such as a car for Spider-Man, a TIE Fighter with TIE Pilot from Star Wars, Yoda, Han Solo and Chewbacca with the Millennium Falcon, Frozone from Incredibles, a Toy Story 4 pack, a new Hulk figure, Thanos, Grey Hulk, Yoda, Ralph and Vanellope from Wreck It Ralph, and Baymax and Hiro from Big Hero 6. There are box sets of Toy Story as well as The Incredibles that are coming. Additional characters have yet to be confirmed.

The Toy Box figures are based on the Disney: Infinity game designs, and are re-engineered and articulated. In the game, franchises could interact throughout all of Disney’s properties such as Marvel, Star Wars and Disney/Pixar characters. Fans of that game can now collect highly detailed and articulated figures based on those designs.

Thank you to Disney and the Disney Store for providing their Star Wars Toy Box Chewbacca and Han Solo figures for review. 

Availability: September 2018

Disney Infinity was Disney’s version of LEGO Dimensions, where franchises collide and characters can interact. These figures are loosely based on this game, and have been re-engineered and articulated to resemble the game’s likeness.

Each figure is packaged in blister cards with the figure protected by a plastic cover and a plastic tray, with artwork on the front, images of the figures in the back, which includes Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca and their upcoming Yoda figure. Han Solo is numbered as #8, and Chewbacca is numbered as #9.

Han Solo and Chewbacca are inspired as they appeared in Star Wars: A New Hope, and are given animated appearances as seen in the Disney Infinity game. Han Solo features a great likeness to the game as well as keeping true to his iconic appearance in A New Hope. The figure is sculpted in his iconic black leather vest, a light grey long sleeved shirt, a brown belt with a silver belt buckle, blue pants with a red stripe down the sides, black boots, and a holster strapped to his right thigh. The figure features premium deco and the articulation is well thought out and allows him to create a number of dynamic poses. His articulation includes a ball jointed head, ball-hinged shoulder, ball-hinged elbows, ball hinged wrists, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, ball jointed knees, and ball jointed ankles. Han Solo includes his DL-44 heavy blaster pistol. Like Princess Leia and other Star Wars Toy Box figures, Han Solo features a great update to such an iconic science fiction character from the past four decades, and we truly love what the Disney Store is offering with this line.

Chewbacca is an incredible looking figure as well, and this figure is made up of many different parts that are sculpted smooth to resemble his fur. Chewbacca is constructed with some adhesive that is shown on various parts of the sculpt, which on this figure is noticeable in the back. The figure is painted in various shades of brown to indicate his fur, with some sculpted fur-like detail in various parts of the sculpt. Chewbacca comes with a removable bandolier, which is uncommon for a Chewbacca figure. He also comes with his bowcaster weapon that can be placed in his right hand. His articulation includes a all jointed head, ball-hinged shoulder, ball-hinged elbows, ball hinged wrists, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, ball jointed knees, and ball jointed ankles. Chewbacca is an impressive figure, with tight joints and great articulation. The facial details are nicely done and his mouth is sculpted in an open position showing his sharp teeth, and the eyes and nose sculpt and paint applications are nicely done.

Overall, both Han Solo and Chewbacca are excellent figures with superior articulation, sculpting, deco and detail. Star Wars fans will sure want to pick these two figures up as they are great additions to any Star Wars toy collections.
