Examining Bandai’s Big Hero 6 “Squish-To-Fit” Baymax

I think it’s pretty safe to say that everyone who sees the hit film “Big Hero 6” loves the character of Baymax who is the hero of this animated feature. I recently got my hands on one of the cool products available by Bandai and opened it up to offer you this little overview. Let’s take a look. I apologize for this being a still photography “unboxing” but I didn’t have the proper set up for me to do otherwise at the moment.

Behold the “Squish-To-Fit” Baymax which as you see comes with a miniature squishable version of the robot, two suits of armor and a vehicle. Here is the front and back of the packaging that you’ll find on the shelves.

The items are secured in the clear plastic wrapping and I snapped this to show that they didn’t appear attached by the wire stuff we often see in toys such as this but they were not at risk of falling out of it.

I had to say that it took a little doing to get everything out of this plastic as it was well protected. Take your time doing this my friends lest you break some of the plastic pieces or knock the wheels off the van.

Here are the two sets of armor that you will be squishing Mr. Baymax into.

Here’s the van for those Sunday jaunts around town.  The van belongs to Wasabi in the series.

This little squishable Baymax is made of soft stretchable cloth with an almost bean bag kind of stuffing inside him to allow it to be more pliable.

You can smoosh him all the way into the vehicle but I felt using the sun roof was a much nicer visual this time around.  The wheels on this little truck work in case you wondered.

As you can see, the armor separates snap apart at the top section.   This one includes a clear dome helmet since its his scuba suit.  I’d avoid bringing this into the tub with you for good measure and no I didn’t try that myself ;p

Here’s the armor we find Baymax in for much of the hit movie.  Right now he is in the process of being squished for battle.  I should mention that there is no means of posing him in these armors.  What you see is what you get.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: While this product is for a younger age and not really something that the collectors market will look for since its not a proper “action figure” of any kind, I do think that this might be fine for someone who just wants a standalone Baymax for their desk at the office. My qualms about it are to make sure you use care in getting it out of the package since I can sense one of my younger relatives destroying it as they try to get it out of the packaging. Heck, I almost took the wheels off Wasabi’s van myself. The other point is that you must use care in separating the armor parts as they attach via small pegs that might break off if you rush things. I thought this to be a cute set and it should bring some joy to the younger superhero fan in your family. The whole thing runs about $25 bucks and you can order it via the Amazon.com code down below. I’ve also included some additional product shots down below.
