Review: LEGO Toy Story 7595 Army Men on Patrol (2010)

If LEGO decides to do anymore of these army men sets, then I vote for a pack of airborne troopers like in the first Toy Story. I know they will never make a bucket of 100 LEGO minifig army men, but that would be awesome if they did. Maybe, LEGO can make a LEGO army men bucket to store these guys in. That’s just a suggestion, LEGO. Oh, and then package the bucket with some figs and maybe a green tank, or something.

Preview – LEGO Toy Story 7594 Woody’s Roundup

This is just a quick preview of LEGO 7594 Woody’s Roundup from the Toy Story line. The full review (along with the Construct-a-Buzz one) will be up later tonight or tomorrow, but I will say it’s a very neat set. Minifigs – very well detailed, very bright. One thing that … Read more

Preview – LEGO Toy Story 7592 Construct-a-Buzz

This is a quick preview of the new 2010 LEGO set from Toy Story, 7592 Construct-a-Buzz. It comes with 205 pieces (and few are extra) and is a large-scale version of Buzz Lightyear, along with an Alien minifig (with shortened/half-height legs).

In the words of my wife, it’s “Rockin”. It’s a very neat set. It’s just under 8 inches (21cm) tall and has some really unique parts. There were surprisingly few stickers – quite a few of the parts you see with designs on them are printed. Just about everything pivots various ways, although the elbows are locked. The visor/helmet is a really neat piece that I can imagine will be used in MOCs for interesting spaceship designs (or domes for some kind of micro/mini-scale landscapes). It’s got a couple of large purple plates for wings, and I believe you can’t get them in this color in any other set.

I’ll get the full review published later today, complete with photos of the construction, since it’s pretty unique.
