The first wave of Toy Story sets based off the first two movies came in blue packaging with clouds, mimicking the wallpaper seen in Andy’s room in Toy Story. The package design changed to an overall white scheme with the release of Toy Story 3 sets to better visually tie in all the sets together.

I've owned all of the versions of the Batcave save the '66 one, probably in some vain attempt to build a proper Batcave someday. The reason behind skipping the Classic TV version is that I honestly don't think it looks nice enough to drop that kind of money on. Once I get over a certain price point on a set, I expect it to be displayed all of the time. If it won't be (looking at you, Hoth Waste of Money), it's probably not worth the investment. I'd rather just pick off any minifigures or the like and be done with it than have a giant set that doesn't look good on a shelf. At $99.99 and 1047, this isn't an insignificant investment... $30 more than the last version but with a whole bunch more parts (and less giant panels everywhere), but still a whole lot easier to accept than the $270 for...(read more)

Pros: RC is exquisitely detailed, and all parts are printed! Pull-back motor is very fun.
Comments: The look of this kit is outstanding, very accurate. On first glance, it seems overpriced. $20 for 100ish parts? But it's top-of-the-line with several printed parts, uniquely molded figs, a pull-back motor element, and very well-designed overall. Absolutely worth the full retail price, but if you find it on sale it can't be beat!

Pros: Nicely accurate. Iconic minifigs. Printed pieces!
Cons: Rather fragile, so if you use the pull back motor function, expect stuff to fall off. The minifigs (at least in mine, I was kind of wondering if this was always the case, or just in later production runs) appear to be the cheap, Chinese quality (indents inside the arms, color a bit off, plastic just LOOKS different, legs aren't actually parallel on Woody, and have visible stress points straight out of the box), which is really surprising in a licensed set.
Comments: I waited quite a while to get this, when it was on a substantial sale, since the price seemed high, but I really like the set (after I got the three pieces that were missing from mine replaced). A bit bummed about the apparently cheap minifigs, but to be honest, like with the collectible figs, I don't really notice unless I examine them closely, which I wouldn't have done in this case if I hadn't seen the indents on the arms.

Pros: RC is faithfully recreated with printed elements to boot! Also, has a pullback motor.
Comments: Recreating the climactic scene from Toy Story, this set gets major points for having printed elements, a pullback motor, and two of the main characters from the movie. Woody and Buzz may be a bit off scale from RC but despite that it's a great little set if you can get past the price.
