A New Mission for Disney's Big Hero 6?

Sometimes, a company just can't calculate how popular a TV show or movie is going to be, so their toy line based on the property will be small-ish...conservative......tiny.. and ultimately sad if that property turns out to generate some love. Big Hero 6 could be counted among these properties, as Bandai covered all the primary characters in a very simple, kid friendly 4 inch figure line quite adequately, but collectors were left hoping our Asian brothers would embrace the film and deliver SUPER MEGA ULTRA POSABLE BAYMAX!!! Instead, our best Baymax has pop up wings and makes wooshing noises..and that's OK too...but we can do better I think. Now..there's hope.

Spotted among the piles of pre-orders that pop up across the planet is a set of Stealth variants of the Bandai Big Hero 6 figures previously released. Since the initial line is languishing on the shelves of local toy stores and the DVD and Blu-ray release is ancient history, this leads us to...speculation!! Why would a company like Bandai make a repaint wave of action figures with very specific decos? Could there be a new cartoon short on the way????!!!

So why am I saying it's probably a short? Well..the toys are done. DONE done. And they are just stealth repaints. Since the feature film did so well, a high profile short is more than enough reason for a company like Bandai to refresh their toy line in stores to tide people over til the sequel drops.

Here's the team from the original movie for comparison

My inquiries as to why there are stealth figures coming soon were met with a side-eye and word that all would be revealed....SOON. soooooooooooooon. mystery!

  1. This is obviously edited and fake. why would the boxes say BIG HERO 6. the frozen fever toys say FROZEN FEVER and not FROZEN. and the pictures of the characters on the box are from big hero 6 and not "this new short where they wear stealth uniforms" and the pictures are obviously edited-i just cant. this is so ridiculous.

    1. Google Big Hero 6 Stealth Baymax and then come back here. I'll be waiting for your apology. =)
