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.

Well, it's been a couple of years since I spammed your feed daily with tiny plastic effigies of your favourite Star Warsian thingamabobs and Wassisname McScenefiller's, but Ace has a way of making you do things. I'm not saying he has a tendency to wear a lot of purple or talk with an accent, but he can be very... persuasive. However it happened, I'm back baby. So ready yourself as best as you can. Do you need a minute? I'll wait... Alright, let's do this! Day 1 - Jabba's Sail Barge Ever so slowly, the brown turd has crept up in these calendars and this year it leads the pack. Go turd!

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.
