That's an interesting comparisson between the current and Toy Story 2 models. I guess they were trying to take advantage of new technology and A) make him more realistic, and B) make him more aged. The stress marks on his arms are a great example. I can also see a lot more scratches and dings (this goes for all the toys). The small chip on his jaw might be from when Buzz punched him.

In the text below woody it also says that Bullseye has been worked on to. I think it's a fair bet that all the character models have been upgraded. Mostly just subtle touches I would guess.

Lee Unkrich said they don't reuse any of the character models. They don't just have them laying around ready for sequels, They have to re create them all from scratch every time. The old models aren't even compatible with modern machines.

Naturally they are going to refine them all.

Well it's a sure bet that all the new models are modded. We've all seen the trailers but nobody spotted the ring pull. Maybe we should start a 'spot the mod thread'. Lol. Just kidding. Don't even think about it. Really

I sort of found that the comparison between TS2 and TS3 Woody was a lot like comparing the SSBM Mario to his SSBB counterpart. From a distance, there's not really too many differences but up close you can tell that the stitching on his overalls, individual hairs and clothing fabric is a lot more...texture-y.

Also, for those of you who are interested, I also own the original "Art of Toy Story" book. Since this was made during the release of the first CGI film, it's an extremely awesome over-sized coffee table book with tons of art scripts and in depth looks at the digital data used to create the film.

here's some pics from my Flickr site:

sorry if it seems like I posted too much. It's really only like 5% of the book.

I have that book. I love the bios of the secondary chracters. The changes to Slinky etc, the actors chosen to voice them. It really is a great read. Looking forward to the new one. It's a shame ts2 never had Its own book as well.

I know, very disappointing indeed! I think it's maybe because Toy Story 2 was originally meant as a DTV cheapquel that maybe it wasn't important enought to have an Art book. Or maybe they thought that because Toy Story already had one, they wouldn't need one for 2. It's the only reason I can think of since both a bug's life and Monsters Inc. have them.

You could be right. It could also be that they were caught out by the success of the film. Still, it's not like they didn't have the time in the years that followed to produce a book.

Totally off topic but I only just noticed that Andy is wearing Jessie's hat at his birthday party. Old eyes I guess.

Do they have a seperate book for TS2? Maybe one that's less than $300.

Originally, the Toy Story 2 Sketchbook was $100.00. But they only printed about 2500 of them, hence the current price.

Amazon has a "Look Inside" up for The Art of TS3. It's amazing, but be warned of HUGE spoilers, even in the small preview.
