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.

One of the more sinister (but understandable, from a marketing perspective, I guess) things that LEGO does is spreading characters across multiple sets, so if you want to build an entire group, you need to buy every set in a series. In larger setups like Star Wars, I get that, or even in Super Hero sets... but for stuff like Scooby Doo and the Hobbit, where the group is the central focus of the story, it's kind of annoying. I'm still not certain that all of the dwarves from the Hobbit were released, but there were like seventeen million different characters in that movie. At least with Scooby Doo, you really only need to buy two sets to complete the gang, the fantastic Mystery Machine set, and this set.

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.
