A&A Global Industries Dogs in Disguise Nanner Action FigureMrs. 16bit is dragged to toy stores on a regular basis, and thanks to Bit Figs I've been spending time looking at those big red toy vending machines. In a Toys R Us we saw "Dogs in Disguise" which boasts 18 different pooches, six sculpts in (at least) three colorways each. We decided we needed to pick up Nanner. At 75 cents a pull, it could get expensive - the first two we picked up were a dog in a cape, but a few weeks later we luckily got this one. Just look at it.

The small 1 1/2-inch dog is actually pretty decent - the caped counterparts had sloppier paint, but this little fellow is spot-on mostly. For identification purposes, his feet say "A&A CHINA" on them, which helped me find A&A Global Industries' page on the toys so I could figure out just what the heck it was.

He's sized about right for 6-inch scale action figures. There is no articulation, no action feature, no nothing - it's just a rubbery white dog with black eyes, a black nose, and a banana peel costume in two shades of yellow.

Other than Bit Figs I've rarely walked away from the vending machine experience happy, so it's pretty rare that I can say I'm impressed at the price point. The dog fur is sculpted pretty nicely, and the figure's face has some decent wrinkles and cute fuzzy little ears. Is it perfect? No, it's seventy-five cents. I'm amazed the external banana peel texture is different from the interior of it - let alone different colors.

Admittedly, I don't have much to say because it doesn't do much. It's not the kind of thing we usually cover here, but it's Halloween and oddly this just worked out. I didn't actually plan it for the holiday, I just grabbed it and it worked. Go, me. If you have the means to get one I'd say go for it, but I was pretty nonplussed by the two caped dogs we got on the first day we tried the machine. Maybe you should just buy a sack of them and save them to hand out to trick-or-treaters next year. And hopefully by next year they can also do a line of internet-famous otter figures. Ryer? Shasta? Baxter? Selka? C'mon, do it. I assume they don't own the rights to their own likenesses.
