I'm pretty sure the look would be the same but the feel would be different.

Pretty much. The fake one is a little darker though.

It's a shame they didn't use the same materials from the earlier releases.

I just got the Toy Story Signature Collection Jessie today and I picked the best looking one in the store based on the face... But as I opened it and tried to stand her, I notice something a bit weird...

It looks to me like her left arm (on the right) is attached completely wrong, as if part of her arm is sewn on to her side.

This is a problem as I wanted to use a different stand under her arms like I have on Woody, but obviously I can't as her arms are essentially different heights.

Very tempted to see if I can return it and get another, any thoughts?

^ Welcome to the forums! I hate to say it, but I would recommend addressing the issue to Thinkway and think of returning the figure. It seems like a factory error.

With regards to the denim on the TSC Woody, I can confirm that the Signature Collection variants do utilize "fake denim". Maybe they needed to cut production costs. It sucks but there isn't much we can do.

Yeah, that error wouldn't fly with me, I'd return that one way or another for sure.

So the signature collection doesn't have real denim? I kinda assumed the TSC version was fake too. I thought real denim would be too thick to use on toys.

I am not going to get the TS3 collection - just really want Mrs P and Zurg to complete my collection:

Just checked the Thinkway Toy's site, and our worst fear has come true...Their only doing re-releases for the 20th anniversary.
Though I kinda suspected as much from them, what do you guys think?

It seems (based off) Thinkway's website that the only boxes getting the 20th anniversary logo will be the normal Buzz and Woody that go for $30 at like Toys R Us. Watch Thinkway release Signature Collections boxes with the 20th anniversary logo :/... And it sucks cuz I have recently gotten them.

Can't say I'm surprised really. With Thinkway's recent track record for items, this shouldn't be that big of a surprise.

For other replicas, we might have to count on DCP or another manufacturer to pick up the license.
