Toy Story 3; Stretch
Who remembers my scathing review of Twitch? Dude, it was only a few days ago! Your probably thinking if I hated Twitch that much, why did I buy Stretch? Well, unlike Twitch, I actually like Stretch.
Again, the toy is not much in the field of joints, action features, accessories, or included comic books.
It excels in that its translucent sparkle purple, smooth, stinky, durable, and floppy? I don't know what I really like about it, it just works as a good bad guy for other toys to wrestle with. The tentacles don't even stay bent, and I am okay with that. You can make her stand tall, or stand or sort of flat. I guess the toy just works in this form, as an Octopus never had an 80's show with a ton of figures with armor, power staffs, and quick attacks. You can't think, "Gee I wish this toy was like those old He-Octopus toys."
Cobra Commander has quickly befriended her for future missions.
She has a great facial feature much like a mad McDonald's Grimace. I hear she's voiced my Whoopi Goldberg, which is a shame because now instead of a unique character Stretch, its Whoopie Goldberg as Stretch. I hate celebrity voice actors, but thats how theses computer animated movies work, and thats a rant for another day.
