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.

Arkham Asylum is one of the more recognizable elements of the Batman mythos. Relatively modern, showing up in 1974, but usually designed after some very gothic or victorian "hospitals," it is where the worst of the victims of the Batman get put to be... I guess tortured? Cause it doesn't seem like anyone that goes there for any sort of medical care. I mean, honestly, the whole of Gotham seems to be one very long string of civil rights and medical violations, so I'm curious how this place functions.

Pros: Well-constructed, great aesthetic, exclusive Zurg minifig. Great parts selection.

Pros: construction/features slightly reminiscent of Classic Space, exclusive Zurg minifig; includes a nice variety of colors from ubiquitous and useful to wild and fanciful
Cons: design aesthetic/recognizability relies heavily on stickers
Comments: This is pretty much a meat and potatoes spaceship that happens to be from a licensed IP. Solid build with small rover bot thing that stows away in the ample rear compartment which can be revealed by opening hinged segments that make up the upper fuselage (sort of a half clam-shell arrangement - functional and sturdy). A separate access hatch (4x4 plate attached to handle/clip plates) exists at the aft section for the rover.
