Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures - PINKY!

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures - Blind Bag Series 1 - K'Nex 2013

Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures is a computer-animated re-imagining of the world of Pac-Man.  The animated series first aired in June of 2013 on Disney XD.  A basic run-down of the show is this:  Pac-Man is young and is the last of the yellow Pac-Worlders.  There are lots of other colors of Pac-Worlders as seen by his colorful assortment of friends.  Also, the Ghost Gang are now secretly his friends and help Pac-Man fight against the other ghosts.  So Pinky and her brothers (Blinky, Inky, and Clyde) are suddenly good guys -- plus Pinky is now a girl, and Purple Sue is non-existent.  There have been a lot of toys related to this series showing up in the video game aisle of TRU for the past few months, but I actually prefer these mini K'Nex blind bag figures.  They're small, they have more characters, and they're significantly cheaper that the larger Bandai figures.  Each Blind Bag actually contains two figures, too.  (The second figure is one of an assortment of generic bad ghosts).  Let's check her out below!

It may be misleading to call it "articulation," but Pinky's arms can rotate.


Here she is with the only other girl so far, Pac-Man's friend, Cylindria.  Pinky considers her a rival for Pac-Man's affections, but she's actually a big tom-boy who expresses no interest in Pac-Man at all.

And here are the two pack-in ghosts.  I'm pretty sure the Blue one represents an "eaten" ghost.  They have plungers on the backs of their heads that will pop their eyes out when pushed.  (I have these guys sitting on my desk at work so excuse the blurry cell phone pic)


Time for a Comparison Pic!
