Examining Bandai’s Big Hero 6 “Squish-To-Fit” Baymax

I think it’s pretty safe to say that everyone who sees the hit film “Big Hero 6” loves the character of Baymax who is the hero of this animated feature. I recently got my hands on one of the cool products available by Bandai and opened it up to offer you this little overview. Let’s take a look. I apologize for this being a still photography “unboxing” but I didn’t have the proper set up for me to do otherwise at the moment.

Behold the “Squish-To-Fit” Baymax which as you see comes with a miniature squishable version of the robot, two suits of armor and a vehicle. Here is the front and back of the packaging that you’ll find on the shelves.

For the adult collectors they have “The Black Series” of highly poseable action figures and now there is something for the younger members of your family circle to enjoy as well. Check out the details that we just received about the “Star Wars Micro Force” WOW Series. Images and press copy came care of the media keepers of the gate for the company.

The Press Release:
BotBots are mischievous little robots who came to life from everyday objects inside a shopping mall! This rare type of Transformers robot is tiny, mischievous, and great at hiding!

Not long ago and somewhere close by, a glowing mist filled with TRANSFORMERS energy called ENERGON came down from the sky and covered a shopping mall. The things inside came to life as little TRANSFORMERS robots! These bots can hide in plain sight as everyday objects, meaning no one knows what’s a bot and what’s not! Mischievous, funny, and super silly, these are… BOTBOTS!

When the Energon hit the objects inside, it made them More Than Meets the Eye. Candy, sports equipment, electronics, school supplies, and other things came to life as little Transformers robots. These robots hide in plain sight at the mall, disguised as the stuff we use everyday.

LEGO Reveals: “Tactical Batman” and “Superman” BrickHeadz Duo Kit

A couple of days ago, I was sent this news by the fine folks handling the press resources for the mighty LEGO in honor of the upcoming “National Superhero Day”. Dig it.

The Press:
This morning, the LEGO Group unveiled a new duo-pack of LEGO BrickHeadz inspired by the blockbuster Justice League™ movie – LEGO BrickHeadz Tactical Batman™ and Superman™. Available May 1, the set includes 209 pieces and recreates iconic details from the film, including Super Hero costumes and capes.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: I guess it was about a month ago that I shared some of the details and images from the LEGO Brickheadz collection from “Avengers: Infinity War” and if you missed that one click HERE to be up to speed. I don’t collect these particular creations myself but know quite a few LEGO-maniacs that love them and who could blame them. They all look so cool and if you are collecting them all you are going to have millions of creative possibilities. Perhaps merging these DC Comics film characters with that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ones will be a fun idea. The upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War” looks amazing and let’s face it, “Justice League” was so far from a blockbuster it wasn’t funny. The film brought in the least amount of money across all of the shared universe films for Warner Brothers and they better get to work on fixing this but I digress. Do you like these newest LEGO BrickHeadz? Let me know down in the comments and feel free to order them care of the handy Amazon.com link down below.
