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:

You know, given my history and general tone on the stuff I write for the site, you'd think that this would be my perfect chance to rant about the new Ghostbusters movie. My love of the original was stated when I reviewed the original 21108 Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set (which remains one of my favorite sets ever). I'm pretty sure I've also talked about how I don't tend to like reboots (though I don't dismiss them out-of-hand most of the time). Yet I'm always calling out gender stuff in sets and reviews, so this seems like the kind of thing that could lead to one of those long and rant-y reviews that I'm prone to do. But, to be honest... I don't want to. The movie has come and gone, and shockingly, the original movie still exists and childhoods have not been destroyed. Tragically, the second movie still exists as well.

    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.
