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 pretty sure my feelings about Episode I as a movie are fairly well established around here. Spoiler alert... not good. That being said, one of the things I think that Episode I did fairly well was setting up a lot of interesting and fairly unique designs, especially compared to some of the stuff we got later. Naboo was simply gorgeous, with an aesthetic that was fairly diverse and definitely unique compared to the rest of Star Wars that we saw.The Naboo starfighter was an fairly interesting ship, that unfortunately only a player for about 10 minutes in the movie (though spread across far longer, because everything was).

    Pros: Lots of character, looks fun and plenty of playability. Lots of great pieces in off colors.
    Cons: Overall, the building spaces are a bit small, making playtime a little difficult even for small hands.
    Comments: Great set for kids, modular build makes a pretty slick playset. Comes with lots of goodies like handcuffs, printed money tiles, snakes, and cool figs, not to mention neat play features. For older fans, there's still plenty of possibility here as it includes plenty of interesting pieces and colors.

    Pros: captures period; something for Wild West fans

    Cons: stickers; somewhat pedestrian building design; mine shaft is a waste of brick

    Comments: Interesting color choices and fun little building facades, if a little boring. The mine shaft design leaves a bit to be desired (only 2 BURPs though) and seems to be there to drive up price-point.
