Lasseter on Disney Living

Postby ToyStory3fan » Thu Aug 27, 2009 5:31 pm

I just saw Lasseter talking about these new ones on Disney Living.

Anyone know if these are battery hogs? What do they take and how long do they last?

As John mentions, I was about to order 2 of each. I suspect the quality is great coming from Thinkway, right?

I have had mine for a couple weeks and had no problems with the batteries. Just picking up RC today, that my get a bit more use than I expect, depends on how much the kids play with it when I am not around. They have all been extremely well made, no problems there.
As a 40 something big kid, I really enjoy having them in my den. Reminds me of the beginnings of Pixar as well all the computer work I have done over the years. Extremely great as my kids have grown up with them and I still see their enjoyment with Pixar continuing on.

I also noticed that both the regular and Collection versions of Woody have sculpted teeth. They're very faint, but definitely there. Point this out to all of your friends if you want them to think you've gone insane.

You're right he does have it there on the table and of course it is not listed on the Thinkway Toys Collection.

Possibly because Hasbro owns the rights to old vegetable man?

We do actually. as I mentioned, it was on amazon for a at least a day er so before it got pulled. while it was still up I saw additional pictures and a feature list. It talks when you tilt its hat to the side, and it shoots all its pieces out .

The only thing I'm confused about is that there doesn't seem to be any additional pieces other than the ones you see on him already. which for the asking price seems like a rip off.


Anyway, I think I'm going to have to return/exchange my Buzz, since the red button doesn't seem to do what its supposed to do.

also, does anyone know how to remove paint? as you may have noticed, the paint application is a bit sloppy. for me it was Woody's eyes, the one on the right has the whites too far down. anyone know of a safe way to remove a small slither of it that goes down past his lower eye lid? its really been bugging me. this is something I would have noticed in the store, but I wasn't the one who picked it up.


And hey, I noticed they gave Mr potato head legs. haha. I'm sure the legs just arnt properly inserted all the way, but its still funny to see. I guess the shoes go in in a different way than the original Mr Potato head's.

As for paint removal it depends on what color the plastic is. I know nail polish removes paint but you could end up removing the paint underneath.

Im pretty sure Woody's base color is unpainted. there is some paint for his rosey cheecks, but his main flesh color should just be the plastic.

we have edit buttons, but it doesn' matter, I actually read it the way you meant it anyway.

Im just concerned about removing too much. it would require a lot of precision on my part, and Im not sure how easily it'll come off.

Yeah but for some reason it wouldnt load when i clicked edit. Ive found if you use a Q-tip it works pretty well. Although that depends on the size of the paint slop

Has anyone spotted Toy Story collection Rex yet? He comes in a crate I think?

I bought Woody, Buzz, RC, soldiers, green men this weekend. Only saw the "normal" Rex though.

This is all that's available right now, correct? Rex will be coming, just not yet... Potato Head is coming.. but also not yet? and no official evidence on Hamm right?
