Hi Guys, remember me, well I think not :P

Well, anyways, here in my country (Chile) They stocked in stores the TSC Rex for the first time ever, sure, he talks spanish, but is a gorgeous TSC Rex.

But there's only 2 problems with them...

1-. He is Overpriced (97 dollars)

2-. I only saw them in my country, and I haven't heard reports of being re-stocked in the US :evil:

So, I have to say something to thinkway...

Their distribution sucks in US

Bye everyone <3

I think I know what you're talking about. Today, while browsing on eBay, I came across this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toy-Story-Rex-r ... 43d58547ed

Hopefully this will be released in the US!

I hope so PixarDude :)

and also, how expensive that Rex is on ebay (I would like to bring to everyone a Rex, but I don't know how many $ I would need to ship to United States, and btw, im 14 years old, so there's another problem)

¡Saludos!

I am so frustrated right now!! :x

So about a week ago I was putting the TSC Jessie's hat on. I put the strap on her neck and when I put the hat on her head, the part that connects her head to her battery compartment broke off. The wires still worked though. However I was trying to connect it back on and the wires came loose. So, of course I called customer service on Friday. I told them about what'd happened and they said they'd call back on Monday.

So Monday comes around and I told them what happened. Thinkway told me it might be the battery pack. I tried doing what they told me an it didn't work. Then they told me to read off the number on the back of her tag and they said it was too old to repair. So now I'm stuck with a broken Jessie :cry:

I understand that it's an older toy but the newer toy is the exact same toy as the older one, just with a rebrand. So now it looks like I'll have to buy a new one.

It's fine now. I bought a loose one on eBay. But still, why can't they replace it if it's the same figure? It doesn't make any sense other than they want to make money, but Thinkway Toys usually cares about their customers. Or so I thought

Hi folks. First post for me but I've been admiring your collections for a while. My 2 year old boy is utterly obsessed with Toy Story (impeccable taste!) so I thought that would be the perfect excuse to start my own collection. Only started in December but I'm really pleased with it. Just took delivery of my large Evil Dr Porkchop spaceship today and it's great. The TSC Pricklepants is on his way to me now too. I really want the TSC aliens as they're the proper size but they're a bit expensive. Can't find any for less than around £80. Considering they don't actually do anything that is a bit steep for me. There are lots more characters that I'll need but they're just so rare or not available at all (why no movie scale Trixie????)

What do you think of it so far?

Looks good, man! Anyways, I saw them selling single sets of the Aliens at Toys R Us Express last month at the mall. These are the same sculpt as the TSC figures, but sold alone. Anyways, if you're looking for the Aliens Toys R Us might have them. While I didn't get the price, they're certainly cheaper than £80 (that's outrageous). We're expecting a re-release of the main cast as well this year, so the Aliens will probably be included, if you want to wait and see.

And everyone wants a Trixie, but it's a shame that there's been no releases. People on this board have made some decent customs, though.

I'm in the UK, and our Toys R Us stores really only sell the ...Time Forgot range now. They got rid of the older ones a long time ago. The site has a pretty limited range too sadly (although I have ordered the TSC Pricklepants from ToysRUs.com for a total of £26 (incl international postage) so I was pleased with that.

There are single aliens on their site for around $15 each I think, but it states that styles may vary and there's no way to make sure you get all 3 different expressions. So I wouldn't want to order them from the site and have 3 of the same alien delivered. I just know that would happen to me! Hopefully I'll be able to get them soon.

Oh, and I love the custom work that some people here do. That's a real talent!! I've seen some amazing figures. Is it someone on here that made the Troikas? You'd never know they weren't produced professionally, they're amazing. I did see a full size Trixie on here at some point too, which I was incredibly jealous of!

Got my aliens, finally. And added Stinky Pete and TSC Pricklepants to the collection this week too. So not a bad week.

A part of Bullseye's stand broke for me while taking pictures. I will have to e-mail Thinkway about this. :(

I really hate his stand. ever since I got Bullseye for Christmas, I have not been able to fully peg in the stands. the one with the curved upwards top is supposed to go in the front near the logo right?
