Plenty of people are anxious to see Disney's "Big Hero 6." On one hand, it's the first animated feature to come out of Disney's purchase of Marvel back in 2009. On the other, it's Disney's follow-up to the incredibly popular and profitable "Frozen." In an effort to give those folks something to remember the film by, Disney Consumer Products and Bandai have joined forces to offer kids and collectors alike plenty of toys in advance of the film's November 7 release.

The Don Hall and Chris Williams-directed film finds genius kid inventor Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter) and his robot Baymax (Scott Adsit) teaming up with Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.), Honey Lemon (Génesis Rodríguez), GoGo Tomago (Jamie Chung) and Fred (T.J. Miller) to stop a plot that threatens their home of San Fransokyo.

With the full trailer just hitting and the film's release looming, Disney Consumer Products and Bandai showed off a variety of different September-shipping toy and role play options for kids and collectors alike to fawn over.

The 4-inch line of figures will feature all six members of the team along with the silent villain of the film, Yokai. There will also be a 6-inch line of toys that kicks off with Baymax and Fred. Each 4-incher comes with 8 points of articulation and an accessory while the half-footers each have character-centric action features.

Baymax is clearly the spotlight character as he also boasts four different one-off figures. So far Bandai showed off the 10-inch projection/SFX Baymax which throws images from the film on your wall, a 10-inch posed version with 5 points of articulation, a Deluxe Flying take that comes with a 4.5-inch Hiro Hamada toy and an Armor-Up Baymax. This one features the 'bot in his 6-inch white nursebot form plus 20 pieces of armor that can be placed on the toy to add two more inches!

Speaking of nursebot Baymax, he, Honey Lemon, Fred and GoGo Tomago will all feature prominently as 5.5-inch plush while Baymax gets an even larger 10-inch version that comes with movie sounds and dialogue available at the push of a button in his belly.

Finally, if you prefer to dress up as your favorite heroes, Bandai also has a variety of role play and mask offerings. The Baymax Rocket Fist and Mask can be picked up either as a combo pack or individually. The Rocket Fist actually launches a foam fist up to 10 feet away. A Hiro Hamada mask will also hit stores.

Comic-Con International attendees can score an up-close look at all the toys mentioned here by heading over to Booth #3635. The First Edition Baymax figure stands 6-inches tall and comes with a metallic paint job and power punch action feature.
