Review: 7590 Toy Story Woody and Buzz to the Rescue
Posted 10 December 2009 - 04:16 AM
This is my first review so please bear with me :)
This set was purchased on Decemebder 8, 2009 from the Schaumburg Lego Discovery Center, located in Schaumburg, IL USA. For some reason they had them in stock there but not the Lego store inside Woodfield Mall located 1 or 2 blocks away.
Buzz and Woody. Notice that Woody is about 1/3 taller than Buzz. This is due to the fact that Woody uses a 3 stud tall legs and Buzz is the standard 2. Buzz comes with a 2 piece wing section, the chest/helemet piece (with printed torso underneath) molded head and half helmet shield. Woody comes preassembled in its own sealed bag and the hat is permanently attached.
Buzz with the firecracker attached. He is attached with a inverted tile with center post in the center.
During the build, really simple but some really nice colors. Lime green and the blue look real nice togeather. :)
All the pieces in this set are printed on and NOT STICKERS. I've seen too many stickers lately, this is a nice thing to see.
R/C. He looks really good. Although in this picture i forgot the blue discs behind the white discs on the eyes. I added those in later pictures though. The wing in moveable up and down. It is a pull back self running car. I will grab a quick video of that in a few. please be patient on that.
I really like this set. I loved the movie and this set is a definite keeper. The pieces and build are simple, but when built R/C is a really nice looking model. His pull back feature is a definite plus. The colors look great, the eyes are what does it for me. The 2 minifigs are the definate reason to get this set.
Buzz is cool looking, the wings are a nice touch and add to the overall look of him. The only downside I have with him is that his clear shield easily pops off. Many times without knowing it when moving him it was gone and i had to go find it.
Woody is different too. He is taller than most minifigs. His legs are 3 studs tall but his torso is the same as regular minifigs. His hat is non-removeable.
This set is a good value at $19.99 USD. I would like to see it at $16.99 or maybe $17.99, but all in all, not that bad of a deal. I recommend this set to any collector and any kid who just wants a fun Lego model to build and play with, as it is very playable.

This set looks very interesting. I find it totally bizarre that Woody comes assembled as a figure (even though the pieces come apart) Maybe they're supposed to ship unassembled but the factory worker/ robot just couldn't resist the cutesy goodness and put Woody together anyway!
Nice to see some printed pieces too
I'm sure we all look forward to your future reviews!

If you make a video and put it on youtube right now you will be the first to review a Lego Toy Story set and you'll get a ton of views! All their is right now is people with videos of promotional pictures we've all seen.

It's a bit overpriced for me though, even though this is my all-time favorite Disney movie, I don't think I'll be getting this; the other sets with better prices and figs could be better deals.
Thanks for the reviews!!
Could we see a clear picture of Buzz's torso?
Once, again, thanks!

As for the set itself, It's absolutely awesome, although a bit pricey. I can't believe that all the pieces in this set are printed! Is the rocket printed on both sides?

The minifigs are great too. I really love that they have printed both torsos. Hope some people who didn't like the minifigs change their mind after seeing them up close.

It doesn't look like much for $20 USD, but if you think about the printed parts ($5 USD extra) and pull-back motor ($5 USD extra), it seems to be worth it.
The Big One looks really big, and is a great addition to the set! It's always good to be more accurate to the movie.
By the way, are those lime green pieces on the very back of the eyes new parts? They look like they are.

I like how we're getting lots of new parts and existing parts in new colors in this theme!

And yes, I agree with you for the price... 16,90 was better.
When you think you can have 2 sets of Army men for this price...the choice is done! :D
Moreover, it will be possible to have woody and Buzz in 2 other sets that are more interesting.
So you really need to have an interest in the little car to buy this set...

It made me reconsider to really get one.
I think TLC really managed to do the car really accurate.

You guys are soo lucky in getting the new sets so soon, I'm really envious.
This set was on my to-buy-list and within this review I want to get it as soon as it is going to be available in Germany.
What a surprise - I watched the movie a couple of days ago with my two sons. I know they want to have it, too.
Well done, TLC!
