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:

Selling to kids is a lot different than selling to adults. There's a limited window for that customer, where they are coming in and leaving the market. At the same time, there are new kids coming in right behind that customer, looking to pick up the hobby. That means that re-releasing a set every few years is trying to make sure that the new batch of kids can find something recognizable to purchase... and regardless of how we feel about those prequel movies or cartoons, they are more popular with kids than they were with the adults that grew up with the original movies. Of course, all of that being said... there has got to be some more popular stuff to release than Stumbles McSpiderwalker here, last seen in the 2013 set of the same name, 75016 Homing Spider Droid, which it feels like I just reviewed a couple of months...(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.
