Ive seen Rex at my local TRU. On a side note, when i bought buzz he was incorrectly priced and target wouldnt honor the price unless there was more then one buzz in stock. There wasnt. However i went back this morning and there were 2 more in the same spot. So I got my 15 dollar discount honored :D

Yeah they had clearanced him or something by mistake. He had a sticker that said 35 but rung up at the normal 50. It wasnt a big deal for me at th time but when I saw they hadnt listened when i told them about the mistake, i figured i might as well get them to honor it.

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?


The only evidence of a new Hamm that I've seen is from this picture.

If anyone knows anything more about where you can get that Hamm I'd be greatful...

Wow, kinda irrelevant here, but the best thing about that video was the nice wire frame view of Woody. Now I have a great reference for my 3d model of Woody I'm working on. er, will be. haven't actually started on it, but I will.

Kind of a meh video though, he doesn't even pull his string, or elaborate on the interactive mode.

Which I guess is okay, because I was planing on doing my own video reviews, and was kinda bummed that he was going to beat me to it with much better videos, but it actually isn't too informative after all.

So you saw the Toy story collection Rex? That comes in a big "wooden" crate? (How much was it, if you remember?)

yeah, as far as I know, all the expensive toys should be the same price at whatever store you get them at. they do vary from store to store, but if you see an expensive buzz and woody at the same store, they should be the same price.

this of course does not include the cheaper ones, like the army men and aliens.

I believe even Mr Potato head was listed for the same price as buzz and woody when he was on amazon for that short period.

Hm.. I suppose i'll have to have a look out for Rex...

I've been to two different TRU with no sighting of him. It still seems like he's not widely available everywhere? He's not even listed on toysrus.com. I've only seen the non "toy story collection" Rex.

Are there more people out there with luck finding him?

My bucket of soldiers did not come with a certificate. Are they not doing that or did I just get a bad bucket?

Mr Potato head isnt out I dont think. Buzz has been available for a little while and as for rex, it seems he has only been found in one or two places

Awesome, pixar blog is reporting that there is indeed a jessie in this line planned for next spring.

Now if they can just confirm Stinky Pete and Bullseye so we can complete our woody's round up.
