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:

I'm starting this review a few days before the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie comes out; I'm excited, I have tickets to a double-header with the first in IMAX on Thursday. The first GotG movie represents something very unique in the Super Hero genre; a genre I really enjoy, but is starting to show a few problems. The Marvel movies, which are all entertaining, are very formulaic. The look and appearance of the movies themselves has become somewhat bland. Marvel tends to stick to flat colors and taking off brightness... giving Cap a dull blue suit, making Spider-Man less shiny looking, darker colors for Doctor Strange, etc. DC goes sepia and covers everything in grit; suicide squad made Harley colorful, but everything else was gray and brown with an extra helping of grit and dust.

    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.
