7595 Army Men on Patrol; Toy Story; 2010; 90 pieces; $9.99 USD

Of the Toy Story sets, this one seems to be the one most wanted and talked about.

I was able to get one of these it seems before most.  I got mine at retail at the Schaumburg, IL Lego Discovery Center lon December 8, 2009.  Funny as the Lego store 2 blocks away did not have them yet.  ( I guess I'm lucky as i live within 10 miles of 2 Lego stores and 30 miles of 4!)

The 4 minifigs that come with the set.  1 comes with the medic helmet and 3 have plain.

Jeep, but missing the final 2x2 green plate on the rear, shows up in later pictures though :(

This is THE SET to get from the Toy Story set.  It for sure will be a winner in the lineup!  For $9.99 USD these won't be on the selves for long.  I am without a doubt going to pick up a few more of these, they are really cool and a bargain.  I can see lego putting them in a 3 pack magnet set and selling them for $14.99.  It is a must for every collector.  These will go into any display just fine, Many people will be using various pieces for MOC's!!!!  There is not to much to say about this set because it is so small.  4 mini-figs, a Jeep, and a few accessories and that's it.  Yet somehow this set seems more playable than sets cost 10x as much!!!!  If you see this set, get it!!!!

I love those new minifig stand pieces - they will make great lilypads! :wub:

Thanks for another exclusive review, Pugsly!

I think this is *the* must-have from the Toy Story line  :thumbup:

So judging from the box cover, the minesweeper ain't too good at his job.   Is that a part of the Toy Story story, or is that just so the medic has someone to heal?

It's so freaky seeing a set with so little colour variety!  :tongue: I hope those fig-stands will become common. I'll be buying this for sure!

Thanks for the great review!  :sweet:

Oh, there's plenty of variety! Just compare the green tiles to everything else. Lots of shade and light!

I know what you mean though :wink: It's like some mod 'concept' of a LEGO set, rather than an actual one  :tongue:

I know one of the soldiers gets stepped on and broken in the first movie, but I don't recall if he was a minesweeper guy or not...

Thanks for the review!  I hope someone puts together a "new parts / new color" list for this set -- I wonder how many of these pieces have never been made in green before!  :laugh:

Agreed! Let's just hope for an honest European price.

I'll probably be getting two or three of this set. It seems like one of those sets that gets better the more you buy.

I'd like to see some MOCs too. Anyone up for a green tent or bunker pieces?

I haven't checked the jeep because it's almost certain that those parts in green are not new. The utensils however are available in the set for the first time ever in green: Rifle, Briefcase, Metal Detector, Binoculars, Radio and Stretcher.

Am I the only one who doesn't really like this set, even for the torso's - aren't they too green to look right?

I took a quick look at bricklink, and it appears the wheels and brackets have never been green before.  I don't think any of the other parts are newly green, though some of them have only rarely appeared in green.

This looks like a pretty neat set, I might pick one up (if they're a reasonable price here in Europe, hopefully even 6,5 - 7 euro's to coincide with the u.s. price, ah, one can always hope  :tongue:).
Only it is unfortunate that there are a few different shades/types of green on the jeep, please TLG, fix your colourconsistency.

I can't wait for this set:

Awesome figs
Cool Jeep
Green pieces

It's like a battle pack for Toy Story, now we just need the enemy to be a battle pack full of martian people.

I'll tell you: if soldiers in WWII actually wore uniforms in this color, they'd be dead in minutes. The green used is very inaccurate, even for jungle camouflage. Indiana Jones sets are still the way to go for WWII Lego soldiers.
