After the first full-length Toy Story 4 trailer was released online in March, fans immediately noticed a familiar face inside the antique store — Tinny from Tin Toy. It’s always great to see reused elements, characters, and easter eggs from prior films, but the nod to Tinny resonated with fans because of the historical nature of the toy. And, could there be a better place to have a classic tin toy show up than in an antique store?
We were even more excited when on April 30, a version of Tinny showed up online as an addition to the new Toy Story 4 Mattel seven-inch line of figures. We were surprised since Tinny doesn’t appear on any of the backs of the box art. Although we have looked at a few stores locally, we only have found him on Walmart’s website (purchase link below the video) for $9.97. We chose free in-store pickup and Tinny arrived two days later in-store!
