I'm excited to get Buzz, didn't Medicom do these guys a couple years ago, anyone know if they're the same or new sculpts?

Buzz is really awesome. I don't care for Woody's expression too much, I think he has to be with Buzz or some other small figure that he is looking down at.

These are 'meh', now that I have the Thinkway Woody and Buzz, I don't think anything is gonna top those.

I hadn't thought of that...these are about as expensive as those are...

Not this time buddy! If Sideshow makes PF's will they be to scale? The Thinkway figures are to scale and they are really accurate, for my money I'd rather have something I can pose, well Buzz at least. :D

Do you have a link to where you can get the Thinkway versions? Are they the "toy" ones that came out with the movie way back?

Darth Waller

Yeah, I'm not sure what scale the Toy Story PFs would be. I guess they'd have to be 1:1 scale or it'd be strange. :dunno

They're new releases that are in stores now.

I love how animated these look (pardon the pun) and Buzz looks amazing, but despite the greater character attempt, Woody does look wrong somehow. Someone mentioned it already, the mouth doesnt look right for some reason. But I do love how they're not just standing there like toys.

I'll probably get the new Thinkway ones though

Great time for Sideshow to import these! I'll have to order both.

Kind of off topic, but still Toy Story related. I was able to trade for the Cast Member Hidden Mickey Buzz and Woody pins yesterday at the Magic Kingdom! :banana

I like these, but I agree the Thinkway pieces are awesome and gonna be hard to beat, imo.

Can someone explain to me. I know what the Thinkway ones are now, I remember the video being posted here of how Buzz works, but one thing I don't like about interactive stuff like that is you're really stuck with poses they work themselves into. Can the Thinkway figures be posed around like any other figure could, or are you stuck with turning it on and having it pose however it moves itself around?

Why bother? Medicom will probably cancel Sideshow's orders anyway...

The Thinkway Buzz is the fully articulated $50 version, you are thinking of the Buzz that talks and moves on his own which is gonna sell for $150.

Wow Lonnie, way to hold a grudge! :rock

Did Medicom back out of providing stock on an item to Sideshow once?

They cancelled orders for the new Evangelion Shinji Ikari figure. Lonnie is not a happy camper right now. :D

I just saw his thread, I can't blame him, he's got me wondering if I should find somewhere else to get Buzz from. I missed out on the first time Medicom did a VCD Buzz, I don't want to have hastles with this one.

Shinji and Son Goku VCD both canceled.

Ah! My point exactly!!! If Sideshow's Medicom orders keep getting canceled, more and more people will order elsewhere because of being afraid they might miss something and Sideshow will eventually not carry Medicom any more.

Which is also the doubled-edge sword of it. If Medicom's cancelling because of not enough orders, the orders will decrease even more because people won't trust buying Medicom from Sideshow and eventually there won't even be a point to Sideshow selling Medicom product.

These are just re-releases. I managed to get my Woody for 3.00 :D

Ok, good to know, I figured it would probably be rereleases but I wanted to know for sure, I missed out on the first round so I was hoping this would be a rerelease I could finally get rather than another version and there'd still be one out there I didn't have.

So is Woody really 4th Q 2010? YIKES.

MaulFan
09-04-2009, 11:41 AM
No, that's gotta be a typo, these are pre-existing molds, it's just another production run, unless they change packaging for some reason, shouldn't be anything new to making these. Fourth Quarter's less than a month away, they could even be left over inventory granted to Sideshow for sale and they'll be coming by boat real soon.

I wonder if DisneyStore.com will get these. $5 shiping on the 2 would be good. :D

I don't imagine Disneystore carrying these, I didn't think they imported stuff, but I don't shop there much so I wouldn't know.

They have recently started selling the VCD's. :)

I like them except for Woody' s face expression, it is way off. The Thinkway figures seem to be way better in comparison.

Woody doesn't look that great, maybe if I could get him for less than $20, but Buzz is a must buy. Looks perfect.
