Pixar Short Films Vinyl Toys Coming Soon from MINDstyle!

As a huge fan of early Pixar I’ve been waiting a long time for an announcement (little late) like this: Pixar Short Films toys!

Now, I’m aware that they have had collectibles from short films before. You know, at like… the Pixar Studio Store and special events — places not many of us have the luxury of visiting too often. So when I heard MINDstyle had taken up the job of making vinyl toys based on Pixar’s earlier gems, I was ecstatic!!

According to the company’s recent blog posts on the subject, MINDstyle is determined to explore characters from the entire canon of shorts. First up is Tinny from Pixar’s first Academy Award winning film, Tin Toy! The models (seen above) are looking great, I can’t wait to see the final product. Also coming soon from MINDstyle are toys from The Adventures of Andre & Wally B. and For the Birds! No word on release dates yet.

Now that we’re talking toys, it’s time for a random but related detour. At the Toy Fair, Mattel showcased new die-casts from the upcoming Cars Toons short ‘Monster Truck Mater." Check out Lightning’s alter-ego, Frightening McMean.

With the big Toy Story 3 toy announcements yesterday and now this, there’s going to be a lot of shopping to do! Will you be getting Pixar Short Films toys?

    Oh yes, how could I forget Nick? Some of the other knick-knacks would be cool to have, too.
