No, you did not read that headline wrong. Bluefin has announced new Toy Story Chogokin Robots for Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear – characters that “transform” into robots.
Chogokin Toy Story Combination Woody Robo Sheriff Star
Height: Approx. 9 inches · MSRP: $169.99 · Available December!
Woody and friends can combine!? A totally wild, only in Japan re-envisioning of favorite characters from the hit Disney/Pixar Toy Story films! Woody, Rex, Bullseye, Slinky Dog, and Hamm transform and combine to form the giant 9 inch tall Chogokin Woody Robo Sheriff Star! Early orders will also receive a special picture book. The set contains 5 characters: Woody, Bullseye, Slinky Dog, Hamm, and Rex.
Chogokin Toy Story Combination Buzz the Space Ranger Robo
Height: Approx. 13 inches · MSRP: $169.99 · Available January 2017!
The Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear returns and transforms into a giant robot with the help of his space shuttle and alien buddies! But that’s not all. The Chogokin Buzz the Space Ranger Robo also combines with the separately sold Chogokin Woody Robo Sherriff Star to become an imposing 13.7 inch tall super robot! The set includes Buzz Lightyear, Alien 1, Alien 2, a Space Shuttle, and a Big One rocket.
Okay, so after seeing the video, I was more than happy to grab a couple of these, but the $169.99 price tag seems to make these toys more “stay on the shelf” than “give to the kids to create chaos.”
Still, watching these figures transform into giant robots is really cool.
