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 talked about how after years of building and reviewing LEGO sets you start to see patterns pop up in the builds and identify the mostly-anonymous people that design the sets (outside of the designer videos, it's pretty rare to learn who is behind a set). When I set out to review 75139 Battle on Takodana, I was fairly certain that whoever designed this set was also responsible for 75017 Duel on Geonosis. There are just so many similarities between the set that stuck out that I kept thinking back to dancing flipping Yoda (and kind of wishing we would have gotten to see dancing and flipping Maz). I have no real proof that they are done by the same designer, but I'm going to stick with it. As a set, there's a lot to like in this little playset... the biggest thing being that this is how you can get Kylo Ren...(read more)

Pros: The purple pieces are beautiful.
Cons: The Zurg mouth is the one time I was wishing for a sticker rather than a printed piece.
Comments: Having bought this set for the parts for a MOC I was working on, I can't weigh in on the build, though I was immensely pleased with the pieces that I got and the price that I got them for. While the gun is practically useless for MOCs, every other piece is great, especially the ones used for Zurg's head, like the purple cone (which has a printed mouth that can be Brasso'ed off if so inclined) and the spiked part on the top of his head. If you can still find it, I'd get it, especially at clearance prices.

Pros: I like the Zurg Head and color purple parts.
Cons: I hate the set!
Comments: The set is way to top heavy the Zurg feels like it is going fall over. I also dislike how the Zurg spins and moves when you try to view the figure at an angle. I would have liked the top half to be locked in a better method. I only bought it because it was $10 from Wal-Mart.
