Tomy's line for Inside Out will include poseable character figures boasting light up features while the range for The Good Dinosaur appeals spans action figure play and remote control walking and talking. T

The unique characteristics of the film’s dinosaurs are reflected in the toy line, and several working models were built and shared with filmmakers to get the movements right. RFID technology also allows the characters to interact as they do in the film.

"We put our hearts into these films, so it's incredibly important to us that our toy-making partners care about and do justice to these characters we know so well," said John Lasseter, chief creative officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios.

"When I visited Tomy's headquarters in Japan, I was impressed by their commitment to quality and craftsmanship. The toys they've created for Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur are fantastic - they've truly brought our characters to life.”

Inside Out lands in UK cinemas on July 24th, 2015 while The Good Dinosaur debuts on December 4th, 2015.

“With the debut of Cars in 2006, we introduced personality and humour to toy vehicles adding a new dimension of storytelling to an established play pattern, and lifting the entire category at retail," said Josh Silverman, executive vice president global licensing, Disney Consumer Products.

"Dinosaurs have always fascinated kids and we believe Pixar’s unique take on our prehistoric friends will have a similar impact on the way they play with them in the future."

This summer will also see The Walt Disney Company will roll out a special toy line to celebrate Toy Story’s 20th anniversary that will include a collectible figure range and talking versions of Buzz, Woody and Jessie.
