Preview the 'Inside Out' Toy Line

With every new Pixar film comes a colorful plethora of new toys for both young ones and passionate collectors to enjoy. We recently got a look at the upcoming toy line for Inside Out, which features everything from posable figures to plush toys.

Japanese manufacturer TOMY has been tasked with producing lines of toys based on the characters from both Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur. Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter, who happens to be a massive toy aficionado himself, said this of the company:

“When I visited TOMY’s headquarters in Japan, I was impressed by their commitment to quality and craftsmanship. The toys they've created for Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur are fantastic—they've truly brought our characters to life.”

Pictured below are some of the posable, highly-detailed figures of Inside Out's unique array of characters that TOMY has crafted.

Toy manufacturer Funko's 3-inch Pop! vinyl figures have also grown increasingly popular over the past few years, and the company has announced that the five main characters from Pixar's new film will all be getting Pop! renditions. These are a definite must-have for Pixar fans and collectors alike. Check them out below.

Additionally, Funko will release plush toys of Anger and Sadness as part of their Fabrikations line.

Lastly, the image below shows the plush toys of the film's characters that will be released later this year, and also gives us our first look at a peculiar pink elephant creature, a previously unheard of character in the film; Bing Bong, Riley's imaginary friend. It should be interesting to see what role he plays in the film.

Keep in mind these are only a handful of the toys being made for Inside Out, and we will likely get a further look at even more from the film's toy line in two weeks at the New York Toy Fair.

Inside Out arrives in theaters on June 19th, so the toys should start arriving in stores sometime in May, or perhaps even late April. Keep your eyes peeled!
