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.

Cars 3 opened this weekend, and judging by its box office numbers ($53.6 domestic), a lot of people saw it, including yours truly. But enough of the intro, here is my 10-second, spoiler-free review: Go see it. It's good enough to make you forget that that steaming pile of crap known as Cars 2 ever existed. Cars 3 is spiritually the true sequel to the original movie and makes a fine movie-going experience. While the Cars franchise isn't ranked very highly by most Pixar fans or movie critics alike, it is one of my favorites and this one does not disappoint. (read more)

Pros: Well-constructed, great aesthetic, exclusive Zurg minifig. Great parts selection.
Cons: Little light on the play features, model is a little small for what you pay.
Comments: The space ship model is well-constructed and comes together fairly quickly without being too simplistic. However, the real value in this set is probably in the parts selection, offering a lot more than simple plates and bricks and in several off-beat colors.

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.
