TBH I don't really mind there not being a Trixie (please don't kill me) because I'd only get her if I had the TSC Rex. Unfortunately, I don't have one and it looks like I never will. In fact, the only film-scale Rex I have is the one from '95 my grandma gave to me. I really want a Stinky Pete because we've literally been waiting 15 years to get a film-scale Prospector that we can actually afford.

FYI:

TSC Rex is indeed hard to find. However, Disney Store had a full size rex not too long ago, and its still sold at disneyworld when you get off the Buzz lightyear ride. Its not perfect, but its definitely a suitable replacement

Is that the one with the string that you pull and his mouth moves? I know there's a Rex that you could buy at Disney Store and it had a pull-string (I'm not confusing it with Woody).

No string, it has a button on his back, retails around $25

I think after that special, we can agree that it's a shame the Battlesaurs and Trixie DIDN'T get made.
"Falling with style", eh?

Hi All,

I have a complete collection (UK based) but can't decide what to do.

I'm pretty sure if I'm going to keep them I need to remove the try me batteries? And then that makes me feel a little sad to have them in sealed boxes inside their boxes in dry storage somewhere!

Do you think I should sell them? If so, what are they worth (£ if possible). Are they going up in value - will they ever be worth mega bucks?

Thanks all

Toy Story Fan

Indeed, they are already very valuable. Prices are still on the rise for these guys, so unless you're simply not interested anymore, I'd keep em. It seems like the secondary characters are actually the most valuable, since Buzz and Woody became pretty common. Rex and RC, for example, are some of the more sought after in the collection.

The only reason you'd want to remove batteries is potential battery corrosion, which wouldn't occur until way down the line. Still, if you intend to keep them in storage a while, it's something to consider. If the boxes aren't sealed in any way and can be put back to the way they were, go for it. While being sealed is more valuable, something like cutting tape to remove it from the box once won't take too much of a dent out of the value. It's up to your discretion.

Does your Rex speak English? Of so, I would be willing to pay about 75-150 for it. I unfortunately missed out on it when it was first available. How much do you want for utility belt Buzz too? I understand if you don't want to sell them either.

Hiya,

Thanks for the offer - they seem to be selling well on Ebay, so I'm not too worried about being able to sell them on if you know what I mean. These two are the most expensive sold recently:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1ST-EDITION-D ... 46264e9f5c (seems to have gone for 275)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toy-Story-Col ... 20eff6b443

My worry is they won't go up in value from where they are currently - or the try me batteries might leak?

What do you think.

Alright, so I know I'm not supposed to double-post, but something just came in the mail. (Wait, didn't I say that before about Bo Peep? I must be having Deja Vu) Anyways, my birthday's tomorrow and my presents must've came today. I asked for the '95 Woody and Buzz from eBay. They both came in 1 auction and for only 50 bucks! 50 bucks ain't bad! haha. Anyways when I lifted up the package I heard a voice in there say "Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!" haha. can't wait for tommorow!

The Toy Story Collection Buzz Lightyear is an awesome toy. Just wish it wasn't so fragile and back heavy.
