I know this is a double post but I want to keep this forum going so here is my collection display.

This is not all of my collection, but just what I could fit on my desk. With that being said, this is an older picture so I have added some stuff since then. I got the TSC Bullseye for Christmas and I got an 8-Ball. I also have the TSC Lotso and Pricklepants, some Toddle Tots and the firetruck, Mattel Rocky, Happy Meal Robot and a snake (think it came with a Woody action figure), and a bendy arms Potato Head body. The Rocky, Robot, and Snake figures aren't full-scale but they're the best I could find without paying a fortune. I have TONS more Pixar merchandise as well.

1 month ago I found not one, but 2 magic 8 balls in a toy store that brings donated toys from the us (something similar to a thrift store in the US) But I dindt have any money at the time. They were perfectly scaled to TSC Woody, and 1 worked perfectly.



Saludos!

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?

Edit: Just realised there's probably a better forum for this post so I'll post it there. If a mod wants to delete this post, please feel free.

Okay, three things:

First great collection so far! Second, this is the right place for this post. Third, the mods are dead...they seem to have entirely abandoned ship.

Just popped off a quick picture of my updated collection. It's grown quite a bit since I last posted a picture of it. Still have a handful of characters to add, but they are all custom builds and at the moment they are in various stages of completion.

I hope Toy Story 4 gives this thread a kick in the pants, I want to see it alive and active again!

Do you think maybe they'll do a replica of Angel Kitty from Toy Story That Time Forgot?

Yes, they are making an Angel Kitty.

It's so easy to double post here due to the lack of activity. :|

Anyway, I recently came into some spending money and bought a Young Epoch Woody (Vintage Variant). It's actually my favorite variant in the line and I was ecstatic when I found it for a reasonable price. Do you guys want me to do a review on the figure? If so, do you want me to line him up with other figures (ex. the TSC Woody)?

The search for Prospector continues. :geek:

As much as I'd love a Prospector, I have resigned to the fact that I will never be able to afford him. The price those sellers on eBay put on him is outrageous. However, I did manage to get the little 5 inch figure with the cannon that fires the pick axe for £20. He's on his way over from the US at the moment so I'm looking forward to getting him. It's better than nothing at all right?

I'm also extremely miffed that I can't get the aliens. The price for them is ridiculous too. The TSC ones don't go for any less than £80 and they're the only ones that are the proper size and look. I know they'll probably bring out new ones at some point but I want them now! :(

I also find it completely amazing that people appear to be paying crazy money for the TSC Pricklepants on eBay. I just bought mine online from ToysRUs.com and, including international postage, it only cost me £25! He should be here in the next few days. But I've seen him go for anywhere between £50 and £80 online!

I only want Prospector since he complete's the Woody's Roundup set but I'm fine with buying the smaller Star Bean plush as a placeholder. The Full Color, Vintage, and Tokyo Disney Resort are probably the most accurate toys we will ever get.

For the aliens, does your Toys R Us have the separate pack of aliens in stock? Even if they don't come with the certificate of authenticity, they still fit the purpose.

I find it odd that Pricklepants is the only Wave 3 character available while Buttercup and Dolly are no where to be seen. By now, they would have at least release another character in that wave.

I'm going to assume you were referring to me but I paid $180 for Woody.

Here's the image of the figure, if you're interested.

The only problems with the toy is that a part of the box is ripped. The Woody itself is in mint condition.

No, Toys R Us in the UK hardly have anything. They have a few of the ...Time Forgot figures in stores and just a handful of the main characters on the site.

What is so infuriating is that the US site sells this: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.js ... age=family which I'd happily buy 3 of. However, you can't guarantee that they'll send 3 different aliens, so I could end up with 3 of the same, which is no good. It's just a stupid set up. I can't find any listing online for them at all, which will get me 3 different aliens at a decent price.

EDIT: New addition arrived today. Pleased with him, given that I will never be able to afford the big one!
