New Animal Planet Playset

This just in! A new Yeti playset is available for purchase that contains an action figure of the Abominable Snowman plus some random, Hoth-Han-Solo-looking guy with a snowmobile, exclusively at Toys R Us for $21:

The sticker on the front promises "ICE-THROWING ACTION!"

I'm not sure how they can deliver on the throwing. Is the arm designed with one of those spring mechanisms? O  do they just expect kids to chuck the fake ice chunks themselves?


Pretty traditional design.  Yeti got a good monkey face tho'.

Here's everything the set comes with:

Here are my thoughts:
  • That's a heck of a lot of little sticks.  Well' one's a gun. Is that supposed to be like a tiny billy club for the Yeti?
  • The cave only looks big enough for the human to hide and cower within. Or maybe crash his snowmobile into?
  • Can the snowmobile be ridden by the Yeti? Unlikely.  Missed opportunity there.
  • I'm pretty sure that is a giant frozen carrot icicle for the Yeti to wield as a weapon. 100% on board with that
There's also a Bigfoot playset available, too - which I think has better accessories:

More pics of it here.
