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.

You know, given my history and general tone on the stuff I write for the site, you'd think that this would be my perfect chance to rant about the new Ghostbusters movie. My love of the original was stated when I reviewed the original 21108 Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set (which remains one of my favorite sets ever). I'm pretty sure I've also talked about how I don't tend to like reboots (though I don't dismiss them out-of-hand most of the time). Yet I'm always calling out gender stuff in sets and reviews, so this seems like the kind of thing that could lead to one of those long and rant-y reviews that I'm prone to do. But, to be honest... I don't want to. The movie has come and gone, and shockingly, the original movie still exists and childhoods have not been destroyed. Tragically, the second movie still exists as well.

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.
