Hello, my fellow Zootopians! Prepare to get Z.A.P.ped! It's time for this week's edition of the Zootopia Appreciation Post, or Z.A.P. for short. Every Saturday, I'm gonna be posting a different Zootopia-related topic that we can all discuss.
For today's topic, I would like to talk about the Zootopia toy line.
This post is for last week.
Before the movie was released, TOMY and Disney released an action figure line featuring characters from Zootopia. The figures were made from rubber, and playsets and accessories were plastic. My two favorite playsets were Judy's Police Cruiser and Nick's Convertible. Although, the latter's car didn't appear in the movie.
In Fall 2016, TOMY released a ZPD Headquarters playset. It had all kinds of lights and sounds.
I've never bought any of the figures and playsets, mostly because my mom doesn't know I'm obsessed with this movie, but they looked really cool when I saw them in stores.
Sadly, the only way you can get them now is online.
Here are a few questions I have about the line:
- How long was Disney's partnership with TOMY?
- Why was there never a Chief Bogo figure or a Flash figure?
- Is there a way that they could have kept the line going?
- How come some figures had alternate color schemes?
- Would TOMY continue to make Zootopia toys if a sequel came out?
So, what do you guys think? Sound off in the comments below!
