There is a lot more cute and interesting merchandise available for this movie. We lamented the failings from the toys for the first movie four years ago. Some of that was fixed as show merchandise came out, but it wasn’t until this movie that things really improved.
The first movie’s toy line failed here, the plush toys didn’t look anything like the actual movie characters. Come on, stuffed dragons basically sell themselves unless they look ridiculous. And they looked really bad.
The official plush available everywhere are still really bad. Super low quality and mass produced, but at least they look more like the actual characters for this movie.
The best by far for this movie is the Build a Bear Toothless:
The wings are not permanently attached, Toothless wears them like a backpack and you can take them off to dress him up. Why they made this choice I will never know, they have other plush toys with permanently attached wings so it is disappointing but the toy still looks way better than other yet produced.
Unfortunately he is sold out on their website and in most stores, but you can sign up here to be notified when they get a new shipment.
The basic figures are about the same, with new ones for the new dragons. I won’t show those because you can find them in all stores with merchandise for the film.
However, they do have some really cute mini figures for around $6 depending on what store you get them at:
Funko Pop also has cute collectible figures, which are for sale at Hot Topic and should be available where other Funko figures are sold.
There is also a set of Mystery Mini figures from Funko which are smaller than their regular figure line and come in a closed box so you do not know which one you will get.
Keep an eye out if you want to add to your How To Train Your Dragon collection, there is a lot of new merchandise worth looking into!
