The line is titled "Metal Collection" and the figures are made out of metal bodies and plastic limbs. The figures typically have five points of articulation. The only way to get them in the past was through the secondary market, but now Disneystore.com is offering a limited selection of the figures in the United States.
The figures cost $12.95 each and they currently have 14 figures listed (the Japanese market has an estimated 30 currently). You can take a look at them on the DisneyStore website.
