These guys are starting to show up in stores and deserve their own thread. If you haven't heard, Thinkway has produced new toys designed to be closer replicas of the movie models.

Soldiers: http://www.disneystore.com/toys-pre-order-toy-story-collection-bucket-o-soldiers-by-thinkway-toys/p/1247709/13919/

Toys R Us and Target had Buzz for $50. I saw RC at Target for $65 and Woody at Toys R Us for $50.

I picked up a Buzz at Toys R Us. They were just put up recently, but all of the Buzz boxes were a bit squashed so it looks like they were packed too tightly. Despite being marketed as replicas, paint apps were a bit spotty, so compare them at the store if you can. They varied a bit, particularly in the face. I had to return the first one because the red wing light wasn't working, so check that out as well.

Buzz has two modes. The first is the demo setting/toy mode with basic light and sound features. It also has an interactive mode that responds to noises, opening the flip-up communicator, retracting the helmet, and popping out the wings. If the wings are out, Buzz makes flying noises when you pick him up. The head also turns automatically.

Quality control is standard for a toy, though not up to par for replicas. All in all though, it's a nice piece at $50.

I also stumbled on what looks like an accurate Rocky Gibraltar while browsing the TRU website. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3558971

http://trus.imageg.net/graphics/product_images/pTRU1-5905851dt.jpg

EDIT: This isn't really a replica. Rocky is part of a (I think) 3 3/4 inch line, so it's smaller than what it would "really" be.

I picked up both 'Andy's Room' Buzz and Woody yesterday and they are fantastic! These are exactly what I was hoping any company would produce. Buzz is such a fun figure to play with, the articulation is great and the light up lazer and lights on the wings are awesome.

Woody is also an excellent figure, the tailoring on his cowboy outfit is great and scale wise both he and Buzz are perfect, he also comes with a stand. They both say a ton of stuff too, I think Buzz says about 30 phrases and Woody has 50 or so. Like I said, these guys are just the type of thing I was hoping would come along, now I need to get Rex and some Aliens and I'll feel complete. :D

I didn't want Buzz all that much before, but seeing the pictures and hearing from someone who has him makes me want him. I don't know if I'll actually get these or not, but they are really tempting. If I happen to stumble upon them in a store I don't know if I'll be able to resist.

He's worth it if you want to have the two main characters in definetive form. I can't see another company topping these, especially at this price. Someone else might make them with better materials and make them more 'accurate', but they'll me a lot more expensive.

Ouch, sorry about the jetpack. :(

There is a way to switch him from Demo mode to Interactive. I think it's near where the batteries go.

I've been seeing more of these pop up. This Buzz is great, but to reiterate, definitely compare paint jobs if that's an option. Check out the edge of the purple head cap, eyes, and eyebrows. Most that I've seen have some minor slop in one or more of those areas. It's no big deal; just a note if you're a nitpicker like I am. The paint on Woody is a lot better and more consistent.

I just saw one at Wal-Mart today...very tempted to pick one up on the 25th when I pick up Batman: AA. I remember the original that came out and as cool as it was back then, I hated the small wings and was sorta turned away from it. I'm just glad they're revisiting TS and making some decent stuff now. I could only hope that Hot Toys would put something out later on since they got the disney/pixar license with TS3 coming next year.

Agent0028

I returned my buzz today and got a new one The talk back doesnt even work that good I think thats how they are made.I'LL admit im not at all happy with the quality of buzz he's not interactive at all,the paint jobs are all defective this one has a line of green paint missing from the right arm I think it was knicked off when it was put in the box.The helmet is loaded with scratches the one I returned had this problum as well.My eve from wall-e is even like this.

The flying sound doesnt even work right and he only says about 10 phrases like my other one.

I think i might return him for a refund or buy the old syle one they have.At first I was happy but now im annoyed this figure seemed so cool.:(

I didn't originally plan to pick this up, but once I got Buzz I had to get Woody. I bought the standard talking Woody (which is great), but returned it and got the Collection version which has minor upgrades. Buzz definitely gives more bang for your buck, but I'm very happy with this Woody too.

so what were the minor upgrades?

What I noticed:

-interactive mode with more phrases
-stronger plastic on the belt and boots
-buttons are more centered on the checkered shirt
-the vest is a bit stiffer so it holds its shape more
-slightly sharper detailing on the badge and belt buckle (which are both painted copper, so the cheaper versions that have a yellow/orange buckle are actually more accurate)
-arms and legs are a little stiffer (the regular version flops around quite a bit, which isn't a bad thing, but the stiffer legs look less bow-legged when "posed")
-different colored stitching on pants where the knees are
-painted lines on hair
-hat has real stitching

I absolutely LOVE these figures. I'm so happy that someone FINALLY released some high quality Toy Story figures. My Pull String Woody from TS2 is horrible compared to this new Collection version.


I also finally got a chance to pull out my old Slinky. :)


Here's a link to some info on Mr.Potato Head. Amazon had it up for a while but pulled it. I hope that they can use Don Ricklles voice for the figure.

There's supposed to be a second wave of these Collection figures early next year but Thinkway hasn't announced which characters they'll be. I'm hoping for Jessie, Bullseye, Bo Peep, and Zurg.

I have tried Target, Toy R Us, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Disney Hollywood Studios, The Magic Kingdom, and Downtown Disney. All of them have the cheaper ones. Except the Disney Parks which only have the original Buzz and Slinky that was released when the movie first came out. None of them look like they have a space where they should be either.

Rex is awesome.


http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a342/Bonehead15/P1020950.jpg


Yes he has Wallace Shaw's voice. All of his quotes are from the movies or the TV shorts from ABC.

He's not as elaborate as Buzz or Woody he's just a plastic dinosaur...but that's what he is in the movies so you really can't complain. He has the same "talk" features as Buzz and Woody and he moves his arms up and down and his head side to side when he speaks.



One thing I'd like to point out is how Thinkway hid his talk button on his but where the tail connects to the body. When his tail is connected you can't see the button at all. To turn on his demo or talk mode all you have to do is turn his tail to the right.

Agent0028

He looks to be in scale with the other figures or at least in scale with Mr.Potato Head. The only other "good" Hamm figure ever released was the one from TS1 and it was way off scale with the other figures. It's pretty rare and goes for outrageous amounts on Ebay.

That Jessie doesn't look too good to me but it's hard to tell from this pic. I really want a great Jessie.

I'm hoping to pickup Buzz, maybe Woody once I see him in a store, later this week, finding out about these figures has me excited, I'm going to dig out my original Thinkway Buzz later.

It's the same one I got. :D It's not part of the Collection line but it still looks great with the other figures. I just cut the string off.

MaulFan
09-19-2009, 01:00 PM
Picked up Buzz today, had tons of him and Woody, just got Buzz for now though. I'll have photos of him later, but I'm quite happy. Having proper and functioning wings is so nice, the sound quality on the toy and real modes is great, the accurrate laser sound is a nice touch, nice to have his wrist open. Nice that each finger poses, surprised to find his waist swivel and have real rubber tubing instead of hard plastic painted. Also happy with the consistent colors and really happy with the head. The 1995 figure head, now that I see them side by side, is considerably larger, the purple is light compared to the rest of the figure, the eyes are painted a bit awkwardly positioned relative to the eyelid, this new one is great. I'm not doing to toss out the 95 figure, it's a classic worth holding onto, but it's nice to get the upgrade as well. Fortunately I'm not interested in keeping the box, the best paint job there was the worst box and the best box was the worst paint :lol

The only way anything else could be a better Buzz figure to me would be if they made one this authentic in looks, maybe sacrificed some authenticy in places, and gave it the kind of articulation he had in "live" mode in the film because they broke some rules of his toy limitations, like all these Thinkway figures can't pose his arm straight and forward, but he does that in the movie. It doesn't ruin this figure by any means, but this is basically a replica of the toy Andy got, I'd love a matching figure to be the living toy Andy never saw.

Has anyone else's Buzz come with scuff marks on his dome? Unfortunately, you can't see that in the store to know if you got a good one.

If you did, does anyone have a suggestion about how you might be able to get it out and make the dome nice and clear and scuff free, or at least minimize it a fair ammount.

Other than the dome issue, it's a great figure, dome problems have always plagued Buzz since day one. I don't mind the few scuffs on my 1995 Buzz, though if the buffing works I'll clean him up, but on the new one, they run right accross his eyes and even make shadows on his face. You can't see from a distance, but I love Buzz Lightyear and enjoy checking him out up close and that's when the scuffs become and issue.

So is anyone else is kind of bugged about Mr. Potato Head having only one eye socket (hole) once again?...in the film his eyes were separate unlike the actual MPH which is only one socket...kind of bugs me...not a detail i think should be overlooked considering it's quite noticeable in the films...it makes his eyes look almost crossed, that's why the original TS one always bugged me. :(

I have seen Mr Potato head anywhere online or in store. I've only seen him in the youtube videos and on the Thinkway website... Are they having issues with the copyright?

No.

They delayed him so that they could devote more shelf space for the other figures. Some stores aren't even carrying this whole line due to the amount of shelf space it eats up. Let's face it these figures aren't small and unless you are Hasbro or Mattel, you aren't going to catch a break from retail stores. TRU though does seem to be the best place to find these. Almost all stores have huge displays to tie in with the TS/TS2 double feature.

There was also a defect in the talking feature on Mr.P so Thinkway went back and fixed the problem.

Amazon had min up a few months ago and Target just put him up a few weeks ago. Both say out of stock/not available.


Mr. P is supposed to be out by Black Friday for the holidays along with one other unannounced figure. Rumor mill says Hamm.

Wave 2 should be out by March which features Jessie.

I think I saw on Toy Wiz that there was an Ultimate Hamm that was an actual piggy bank with real cork and everything. I would love something like that.

I get paid this week and I'm pretty sure I'll be getting Woody. He was my favorite toy in 3rd grade and I even brought him in for show and tell! haha....my only concern is that the paint might wear off of his hair from taking the hat on and off too much

Yeah...about that. would anyone here know anything about trying to fix this? its driving me nuts. I tried to ignore it, but now its all I see when I look at him. I thought about buying another one, but somehow I still prefer this version when it comes to other aspects, like the sharply folded collar in comparison to the others Ive seen in stores. if I could just fix this eye he would be perfect to me. I really want to avoid selling him and buying another version, but I might end up resorting to that. unless I can think of a good way to fix this. I didnt think it would be this hard to remove a small amount of excess paint. if only it wasnt in such a difficult pace to reach I's scratch it off, but its too close to the paint I need to keep, too risky.

Grange Wallis
10-25-2009, 11:27 PM
Hey Kyle... From Pixar Planet... I don't like the idea of scratching it off, like the some of the people at PP Forum suggested... You could work with nail polish remover and a fine paint brush and try to paint it off with the brush and cotton wool bud, paint the remover on to the excess paint and wipe if off after a couple of minutes. But you run the risk of losing a sharp outline of the eye or take paint of the eyeball itself, not to mention what the remover might to the the plastic... I hope that helps... If you are extremely careful, you could remove the paint with a fine brush and paint it off, so to speak.

Kyle
10-25-2009, 11:33 PM
Wish I knew what effect the remover would have on the plastic itself, I don't think I have anything similar to test on. I cant imagine it would do anything but I could easily be wrong, I dont have experience with this type of thing. I do have steady hands though.

Grange Wallis
10-25-2009, 11:39 PM
Generally plastic handles it well. However, you'll have to wash the exposed area really, really well, like 3 times! :D

Just take it slowly and it work for you. Just be slow and don't loose patience...

Kyle
10-26-2009, 12:32 AM
Should I avoid/aim for certain types of soap? Should I only use water?

after that I guess the only thing left is to look into getting the worlds smallest fine brush. that's like one bristle thin...

I worry about how the remover will set on the surface though. it'll probably seep into that little dip.

Should I delute the remover? anything other precautions I can take? any way to block off the eye itself? would probably require too much precision, not sure what I would even use.

Grange Wallis
10-26-2009, 02:52 AM
Don't dilute it... Just apply, try and keep it on the paint, and continuelly remove it as you. Work in stage... apply, wait, brush off, wipe excess off, wet cotton whip, repeat that and then give it a soaking under the tap for 30 seconds on a really low pressure. Whip and the wet it again and dry it off. That's how I'd go about it... I hope it works out and my advice doesn't lead to Woody being damaged. I'd hate to see that happen. Gorgeous figure!

Speak to some of the customerisers on the board as well. DarkArtist, Darren Carnell & Les Walker, if you can get onto him.

Snake: The stand's base isn't flat enough and has a weird flip selection. Also the plastic is too hard for the neck peice and can only be rotated and should have moved up and down, it holds Woody about a mm to high off the base. It holds Woody too close to the shaft of the stand and pushes his torso forwards.

Maulfan: My buzz's dome is in good nic, but does have some scuff marks. They should be packaged with a clear protective sticker...

Heat the base and the stand post with the blow dryer and push it down the hole as far as you can... I did this and my Woody's feet meet the stand's base. I won't say well. But enough to hold the legs in their pose.

Thanks for your suggestion, but it scares me. The pole (:naughty) seems to be too high. I can't imagine it's not completely down the base. Me imagining heating it might lead to the pole being stuck in the stand (melting plastic :sick) which doesn't seem desirable. Will think about it...

That's not true. Rex isn't based off of any specific figure.


John Lasseter has debunked this before and Wikipedia is hardly 100% accurate.

While some fans claim he was based off the Dinoriders T-Rex figure he wasn't. Disney just needed a dinosaur for the movie so they made up Rex as a generic dinosaur.

In fact, Rex wasn't even in the first few drafts of the film. The very first script had Godzilla playing his part. "Rex" was later replaced by a generic "monster." They changed him over to a T-Rex after Jurassic Park came out in '93 thinking kids would be familiar with that type of dinosaur. Plus they wouldn't have to worry about any licensing problems by not basing him off anything specific. Disney had a tough time gaining rights to several characters for the movie. The most famous being Barbie and GIJoe which Mattel and Hasbro both refused for their characters to be in the movie. Smart move guys. :rolleyes:

The most famous being Barbie and GIJoe which Mattel and Hasbro both refused for their characters to be in the movie. Smart move guys. :rolleyes:

Well of course Wiki isn't always accurate, but it at least led me to the referenced toy. Anyway, I can definitely see how the rumor got started, pretty strong resemblance on the bodies, like the texture and such. Or maybe he really was based of the DinoRider.

I agree with you... Lasseter did said in the video promo for the Collection edition of Rex, that he wasn't based particularly an any one T-Rex figure, but he did say that they were looking at all these T-Rex figures and how pathetic their arms were on some of the toys...

It's a generic version of the Dino-Rider figure, which was later sold in a standard Dinosaur toy-line. Besides it's resemblance is to obvious to ignore. :monkey3

Hi Guys

I've just got Buzz after checking every one in the shop to get the best paint job only to find the head movement isn't working at all. Has anyone else had this problem and if so if there a quick fix?

Thanks

Daz

Well I exchanged it this morning for one that works but I now have a scratch on the helmet and one of the wings droops! I also bought Woody and he's spot on!

It's harder to get a Buzz, than a Woody. ;)

I just caught a commercial for the Toys R Us Big Book, and at the very begining it shows MR.POTATO HEAD standing next to Woody in the ad??? But I don't recall seeing him there when someone posted the ad online. Does anyone have the Big Book and is he in there??? :confused:

removed the helmet on mine, just to see how it looks, I prefer it.
also added some gloss to his eyes and touched up his eyebrows a bit..

Looks good to me. Where did you order your Buzz if I may ask?

ebay :) Also, for those curious: I was able to take both caps off without breaking them, so yeah, I can pretty much put them back on! Careful though if you do decide to take them off..

great figure all around!

only 2 downsides to me are: He cant do a laser shooting pose
and he cant take off the helmet fully without me modding it and risking breakage

besides that AWESOME

That is weird about the legs. What is up with Hamm and Rex though?

None of those are real except for Mr potatohead. the rest are just 3d models, which you'd notice if you watched the ad itself. there are versions of rex and Hamm like that though, their from mattel as a sort of a highly distorted/exaggerated line of figures. this isnt even what the real big looks like either, this is just a mock up design used in the ad. the real thing looks completly different, Mr P isnt even in it.

But I'm sure Mr Potatohead just hasn't been pressed down enough.

eczamurai, can you post some nice close up shots of the glossed bits? preferably without flash? (use macro mode to make focusing easier)

This is probably a stupid idea, but after spending a lot of time browsing the Customs forum, I can't help be keep wondering if it'd be possible to mod Woody to look like he does in the movie when he's a toy. Wide eyes, closed mouth smile. Mainly a complete mod of the mouth would be the part that took work. Just interested if it's in anyway possible. I'm even thinking of trying to get Buzz with the wide eyes he has in the TS3 trailer now. More than a simple repaint due to the slight bit of height to the eyelid, though maybe that's not very significant. Unfortunately I haven't gotten any of these yet.
