One of the movies that marked a generation was Toy Story, the first movie computer animated movie produced by the giant Pixar. Not only its quality was recognised globally, but LEGO had the excelent idea to transport the theme to their world. They created about 15 sets that cover themes from all the 3 movies.
As i mentioned in a previous post, i bought a pack of 13 minifigures. 2 were from Sponge Bob an the other 11 were from Toy Story.
- Buzz Lightyear: One of the heroes from Toy Story. This is a normal minifigure beside the custom armour and head that is unique to it. This figures is present in 6 different sets:
- 7590: Woody and Buzz to the Rescue
- 7593: Buzz’s Star Command Spaceship
- 7597: Western Train Chase
- 7598: Pizza Planet Truck Rescue
- 30073: Buzz’s Mini Ship
- 852949: Toy Story Magnet Set
The figures i bought makes part of one of the first five sets. A little side note: i think this figure is light year ahead from the figure that is rumoured to appear in a not so certain LEGO Minifigure Disney exclusive.
- Woody: He shares with Buzz the role of hero on the Toiy Story Saga. Has a minifigure, it possesses a unique set of legs that is about 1/3 higher than the tipical ones. Like Buzz, Woody also has a fully customized head that gives him a look a lot closer to the real one. This minifigure is present in 5 LEGO sets:
Like the previous figure, its dificult to know to which set this figure belongs, but its guaranteed that belongs to the first 4 sets.
- Jessie: Its a character that was presented in the second instance of the Toy Story Saga. Like Woody, she has cutom legs and head. Its available in only 2 LEGO sets:
- Bullseye: Its woody’s horse and is very different from the usual LEGO horses, but is very similar with the one in the movie. Its available in 2 sets:
These 4 green soldiers are well known in the Toy Story Universe. The figures are not complet and are missing some key elements like guns and binoculars. The doctor of the group also didn’t came with the purshase. These figures are available in the set 7595: Army Men on Patrol.
Finally we have 2 of the supporting characters and one main antagonist:
- Hamm: one of the supporting characters of Woody and Buzz, This figure is particularly well conceived because, like the movie original, it a place to insert the coins and a place to remove like a real money box. Its available in the sets 7598: Pizza Planet Truck Rescue and 7596: Trash Compactor Escape.
- Rex: One of the many toys that appear in the Toy Story franchise. Although it has a small part in the first movie, it possess more screen time in the second and third movies. Rex is available on the sets 7597: Western Train Chase and 7598: Pizza Planet Truck Rescue.
- Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear: Also known as Lotso, its the main antagonist of the Toy Story 3 movie. As a figure, is well conceived it the staff and all. Its available in the sets 7599: Garbage Truck Getaway, 7596: Trash Compactor Escape and 7789: Lotso’s Dump Truck.
In the end, each minifigure cost me about $3 which I consider a very good price for a minifigure.
