7590 Woody and Buzz to the Rescue

Alternate Box Art:

Notes:

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.

Staff Review:

Toy Story sets hold a special place in my heart. Not just because they capture one of my favorite movies, or come from the mighty Pixar, whose movies have set a standard that all animation, and even all movies, try to ascribe to. No, I love these sets because they created a sense of excitement in me that I hadn’t really felt since the first Star Wars sets hit. They are unique, and the first of the Disney line, capturing something that is already unique, and making it special. Woody and Buzz to the Rescue captures a memorable scene from the first movie, the finale, actually, and captures it almost perfectly. RC Is rendered stunningly, and looks great compared to the movie. Interestingly, the set bricks are all printed, no stickers at all in the set (unlike most of the rest in the line). Not to mention, so many...(read more)

    Pros: RC is exquisitely detailed, and all parts are printed! Pull-back motor is very fun.

    Cons: Cons?

    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.

    Cons: Pricey

    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.
