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 starting this review a few days before the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie comes out; I'm excited, I have tickets to a double-header with the first in IMAX on Thursday. The first GotG movie represents something very unique in the Super Hero genre; a genre I really enjoy, but is starting to show a few problems.

    Pros: Lots of character, looks fun and plenty of playability. Lots of great pieces in off colors.

    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.
