Like the Kong toys the Rampage toys are sets including a monster, figure, and accessories. The revealed sets include Canister Contact Ralph, Canister Contact Lizzie, Canister Contact George, Big City Brawl George, Big City Brawl Lizzie, and Big City Brawl Ralph. No price point or release date have been announced but like the Kong toys these will be available at Walmart exclusively. More info as we get it. Info from Twitter via Toyark.
Update: additional toys have shown up at Walmart including Mega-George and video game Stretch figures. Mega George is similar to the large Kong figure but is a new sculpt, and slightly smaller (possible 16/17 inches). The stretch figures are more based on the video game so coloring is different from the movie characters. All figures are fairly inexpensive Mega George being $20 and the stretch figures $10, expect all Rampage toys to be in that price range.
