If you have not seen Big Hero 6 yet, then you are seriously missing one of the greatest Disney films in years! I am obsessed with Baymax and the whole Big Her 6 team and have only watched the movie about five times by now. Baymax toys are pretty hot right now, and this Big Hero 6 - Armor Up Baymax is on sale from $22.99 down to $17.17.
I tried price comparing this toy, but so few places in Canada currently carry it. I did find it from a secondary seller on Amazon Canada: they are charging $41.07 plus an outrageous amount for shipping. I decided to go to the source - the Disney Store. The Disney Store's website is USA based, but they have the same Armor Up Baymax toy priced at $29.95US.
I love this little figure. He starts at 6" tall in his plushy, lovable form. When fully armoured, the Baymax figure stands 8" tall with a 14" wingspan. There are over 20 pieces of armour to put on Baymax to transform him from nursebot to awesome flying robot.
Keep in mind, this is designed for somewhat older children - those who have the manual dexterity to manipulate small parts and use bits of force to snap them into place. I am a pretty big kid when it comes to this movie and I would LOVE to own a Baymax figure. He may just be among my top three Disney characters EVER!
Now, a few reviewers had difficulty getting the armour to stay on Baymax - but you really need to follow the instructions and there will be no problem. As this reviewer said:
My son loves this toy. I do not understand all the complaints about the armor falling off! My son has had no problems with it falling off! He said it is like putting legos together! I wonder if some people did not turn the belly and his back around, because you have to do that to put the armor on correctly!
This Baymax toy is not available for pick up. Toys R Us, as you know, offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more. You may want to order two or check out the rest of their sale section so you can get free shipping. I added to my cart this Monster High - Secret Creepers Crypt Setthat was $39.99, and is now $19.97.
