Does the Combat Carl ring any bells?
Well, the hands are raised for all the Toy Story fans. In the very first Toy Story, there was a toy named ‘Combat Carl,’ the name itself takes us back to a particular type of action figure, which never shied away from doing the right thing, be it in battle or otherwise. Fans finally met the real Combat Carl in 2013 with Toy Story of Terror, voiced by Carl Weathers.
