They’re here! We couldn’t have been more thrilled when we visited our local Toys R Us yesterday and found a sampling of the new Coco-themed figures hitting shelves.
Between this new series from Mattel, the books that were released last week, and the products released earlier this month from the Disney Store, this is certainly amping up our excitement for the film.
One series that we were particularly excited about was the Skullectables — a line of Mattel figures ranging from 2-to-3 inches in height which are absolutely fantastic. The Skullectables have swappable parts (every character is broken into three sections) which allows you to make fun mashups of characters or simply play and collect them.
Watch our blind-bag opening video below (embedded from our YouTube channel) in which we share all of the figures we found at our local store. There are a few additional figures, including a large Pepita “Land of the Dead” set (photo below) and a temple playset (which doubles as a holder for your figures) and includes a translucent marigold-colored exclusive Miguel figure as well.
UPDATE: Since we opened the bags, we realized that we hadn’t thought about looking at the codes on the back (we were so caught up in the Coco excitement – ha)! But now that we took a look again, we wanted to pass along the codes — they are below.
20670B-A: Miguel Rivera skeleton painted face
20670B-B: Miguel Rivera (standard)
20770B-E: Skeleton Ernesto de la Cruz (black and white)
20670B-F: Mama Imedla
20670B-G: Alebeije Dante
20670B-J: Ernesto de la Cruz (blue Mariachi suit)
