Toy Story Collection — A Look at the Toys

Toy Story Collection Buzz Lightyear

The Thinkway Toy Story Collection toys are certainly not newly released, but in order to continue to provide quality content on our site, we took a slew of original photos so you can check them out. In case you haven’t heard about this collection before…there are a special set of Toy Story toys that are based on the original 3D renderings and Pantone color accuracy as specified by Pixar (including a specialized box with a certificate of authenticity).

There have been several releases of these toys, one set in 2008, an additional group in 2010, and a follow-up set in 2011. There have been many, many rumors about which characters are supposed to be released but we don’t know which may come next.

Notes on the photos – The Toy Story Collection Buzz is placed next to the D23 Buzz for comparison purposes. There is absolutely no similarity of quality between the two versions of Buzz – most noticeably, on the D23 Buzz – his helmet is a cloudier plastic, his face is not as detailed and the voice quality is much lower.

For Mr. Pricklepants (who’s had a long journey from London – along with Buttercup), I included the 6″ Disney Store version ($8.50) for comparison. This really highlights the differences in the toys – most notably, his snout area seems more squished/undefined, his hair is all one color rather than shades of brown and his buckles are fabric on the Disney Store version.
