Coming soon from Hot Toys – 3-inch tall Monsters, Inc. Cosbaby (S) Series

In view of the popularity of the Monsters, Inc. movie and the upcoming launch of the 3D version of that movie in early 2013, Hot Toys is proud to present the Cosbaby (S) series from the Monsters, Inc. movie. Each cosbaby stands approximately 3 inches / 7 cm tall, featuring your favorite movie characters of six unique designs in baby forms and their unique designs in special format.

Monsters, Inc. is a 2001 American computer-animated comedy-adventure film directed by Pete Docter, released by Walt Disney Pictures, and the fourth film produced by Pixar Animation Studios. Co-directed by Lee Unkrich and David Silverman, the film stars two monsters who work for a company named Monsters, Inc.: top scarer James P. Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman)—known as "Sulley"—and his one-eyed assistant, Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal). Monsters generate their city's power by scaring children, but they are terribly afraid themselves of being contaminated by children, so when one enters Monstropolis, Sulley finds his world disrupted.

Mary Gibbs as Boo – A 2-year-old human girl who is unafraid of any monster except Randall, who regularly scares her at night. She refers to Sulley as "Kitty". The book based on the film gives Boo's "real" name as Mary Gibbs, the name of her voice actress. In the film, one of Boo's drawings is covered with the name "Mary."

Billy Crystal as Michael "Mike" Wazowski – Mike is a green monster with a ball-shaped body, a single big eyeball, and skinny arms and legs. He runs Sulley's station on the scare floor, and they are close friends and roommates. Mike has an outgoing personality and is dating Celia Mae. He has an ego that often makes him forget something obvious, such as how his face is obscured in advertisements for the company

Steve Buscemi as Randall Boggs – An impatient, multi-legged lizard-shaped monster with a chameleon-like ability to change skin color and blend in completely with his surroundings. He is Mike and Sulley's rival in scream collection.

Two versions of Boo will be offered as well as two versions of Mike

Altogether six mini-figures will be released. Wish they made the other characters as well and only do the other versions in the later series. That way we can see more variety of characters.

Medicom Toys also released a set of 10 Monsters, Inc figures via their Kubrick line some time back which I had covered / reviewed in my April 2010 toy blog post HERE. They are certainly worth a look ;p
