I ended up having a hard time finding any of the merchandise for Up.

Recently I went into a Disney Store and they had plushes of Dug, Alpha, Beta and Gamma!

They talk, too, but only Alpha says 'Squirrel!' which is kind of a bummer. And I might have to fashion a Con of Shame for one of them to wear. :D

But as of yet, I haven't found any toys of the small mailman and the one who smells of prunes.

I've seen pictures of them, I just haven't found anybody carrying the items...

Granted, I haven't been looking that hard...

Yeah, the stuff that's mostly on the shelves is the dog plushies, and sometimes shirts. I got to see the snowglobe (bout slobbered all over myself over that, it's amazing) and some books and stuff, and I got the giant Dug plushie, makes an excellent pillow

I picked that up when I got my Pixar Shorts book back in Ohio last week. Haven't even opened it yet, but dang it was EXPENSIVE! 15 bucks!

I was lucky to find a set of Up figures earlier today at the Paris Disney Store on the Champs-Elysées. Apparently (as written on the packaging), it's exclusive to Disney Stores.

I was incredibly happy when I saw that. That's just what I was looking for. I don't own a lot of Pixar toys - or derived products - but i do love this kind of collectionable figures.

So, it was a good day :D

Archibald: Those look brilliant! How much did they cost? And how big are they? If they were available in the US, I would probably get them. If not, I'll just wait for the pricey ones of Carl and Russell. :P But besides Russell, those are actually pretty well crafted.

Bryko614 : they cost me 25 €, which means they would be at approximatively 35 $. I thought it was not very expensive for those eight nice figures.

As for the size, I took a photo of Carl in my hand, so that you can see for yourself :

I saw those on the online store, they look pretty good. Dug's fur is a bit dark though, he looks a bit funny. Nice post though!

Archibald, thanks for posting the pic; those are great! Does Kevin have a bendy neck? (Comparing the "solo" pic to the pic of them in the box, it looks that way.) And they even included Muntz, which is cool; I think he's kind of hard to find "stuff" of.

karly05 : unfortunately, Kevin doesn't have a bendy neck. It's just the way I took the picture who gave this impression.

A thing about Muntz : it's probably the best figure in the set. He's really wonderfully made ; just like the character in the movie. Take a look at the details on the face :

Wow, you weren't kidding! That's pretty amazingly detailed for the general look of that set! Thanks for sharing Archibald, I hope they release these in the US! Sounds like you're enjoying them.

Oh, wow, Muntz looks great! I can just hear him saying, [spoil]"I can't wait to hear how this one ends."[/spoil] Thanks for posting that!

Err...karly05, I hope this won't annoy you, actually the quote said: [spoil]"Well that's the best one yet, I can't wait to hear how it ends."[/spoil]
HARDCORE AWESOMENESS.
