Any chance you could provide links to the sets? Your other topic just had a link to amazon.de. Doing a search doesn't find anything. I know there won't be pictures, but maybe price? Or at least confirmation of number of sets.

And here is the translation:
7590 - Buzz and Woody's Rescue
7593 - Buzz' Star Command Spaceship
7594 - Woody's Round-up!
7595 - Green Toy Soldiers

Although I am happy there are finally rumors about the sets popping up, I'm kinda disappointed at the same time. These kind of sound like someone just made them up, based on the SDCC pics. :sceptic: Oh well, let's analyse them anyway, shall we?

7590 sounds like the set we saw at SDCC, the one with Woody, Buzz, RC the car, and the "The Big One" rocket.
7591 is probably the set with the Zurg fig. But I highly doubt it'll just be called "Zurg". :sceptic:
7592 Hm... Don't know what this could be. :look: The only thing that comes to mind would be a large model of Buzz in the style of the Build-A-Bob, but that's maybe just what I hope it is. :tongue:
7593 Not surprised to see a set like this. It's probably the card board space ship Buzz arrives in in TS1. This could be the set to include the LGM alien, although that wouldn't make much sense since we never saw the LGMs and the ship/box in one scene. For now, this is the set I'm most excited about. :thumbup:
7594 is obviously the set that includes Jessie, Bullseye, and Stinky Pete. I reckon the set will be comprised of Woody-themed toys as seen in TS2.
7595, well, is obviously the set with the army men everyone is so excited about. :wink: Who knows what the actual set is though. :look:

Again, I would have hoped for a little more info, but I'm still happy to see simple rumors like these. :classic:

I think the Indy theme will not end this year. After Legoindy posted that statement that really sounded like it came from TLG not like Jedinews. I'm not changing my mind. Why do you seem so certain that it's ending? At least Lego sent out something for Indy unlike what they did for Batman.

Thanks for the info Christian! :thumbup:

I'm not very excited about the Toy Story sets, from the pictures I've seen of the minifigs they seem pretty dorky IMHO. But I might pick up the 7595 Green Toy Soldiers if it's not too expensive. at least they look like normal minifigs (except being all green :tongue: ) and can probably be used in many different ways.

PS. JCC1004 and Oky Wan Kenobi, please discuss the Toy Story sets here. I don't like to mini-mod but I don't want this thread to turn into something like this one :hmpf:

Mainly the big heads :sceptic:
Although I was quite impressed when I saw how similar the LEGO version was to the "original", it still doesn't do it for me. And maybe this scepticism from me is just because I didn't liked the movies that much :blush:
I also like minifigs with parts you can use in many different situations and I think it will be hard to use, for example Woody's head, as anything else than as Woody's head.

It's possible, but so far we have a list of set numbers and names with no link or pictures. Saying two of the sets are KK2-style large figures based on the set name is a leap of faith at this point (unless you're referencing something else).  :classic: Plus, if these are the official set names, Lego has lost some creative juice. "Green Toy Soldiers" sounds awfully generic to me.

You can't use any of the spongebob heads for anything else either.
And that is exactly the same with the aliens form mars mission.

I like the new Toy Story lego.

I was just commenting on the new set list no in a full disscussion about them. Anyway  the ones I qouted are the only ones that interest me. I really only like the older two so I'll probaly not like the next wave. Does anyone know why Amazon gets these listing a lot now a days.

Possibly impulse sets? Some examples are Troll warrior, Police officer, and most of the impluse sets are like that.

I'm not interested in the Toy Story sets in general - but I perhaps will buy the set with the green plastic soldiers if it wasn't too expensive.

No, it doesn't. If you look at the set number of the army men set, it's the highest of them all, which means that it's also the most expensive one. :sceptic:
Well, at least the set with Zurg is one of the lower numbered sets.  :tongue:

Not necessarily, it just seems to be that way most of the time.

There are other themes in which the sets from one release are spread out over a range of numbers. The set numbers are not necessarily idicators of price.

Besides, I grew up watching Toy Story, and I must have seem it dozens of times. There are not many large set opportunities fo r the Green Army men, so its probably a battlepack-like set.  :classic:

Lego tends to dedicate the large set slots to sets that would be most iconic, and sell well. I know Lego, and they wouldn't feature obscure characters in the main set, but they would put them in a cheaper set...

I'm really hoping the army men are not in a large set, but on the other hand it could be a smart move on TLC's part to market it in a larger set to make more money. Or not possibly, who knows? Still, definitely getting them, they will be the most useful figs of the line for me.

OK, well, I still don't see how that makes them dorky, but fine.
Besides, what, except the heads, doesn't look useful to you? :sceptic: I, for one, can see several uses for many of the torsos, long limbs, and even Zurgs shoulder piece and cape. :thumbup:

I was playing with the thought that these might be the Duplo sets, but since they have similar set numbers as the rest, that can't be.

I really hope that these aren't sets with just minifigs in them. It's nice to have little minifig packs, but I'd like to have more than 3 'normal' sets.
This line might turn up the way I thought it would though. No set ideas....

7593 - Buzz' Star Command Spaceship
7594 - Woody's Round-up!
To me, this sounds like Minifigs + boxes for them. Hopefully I am wrong.
The minifigs didn't look very LEGOish, IMO (see, Oky isn't the only one that does that  :tongue: ), but I'll probably buy the sets, since I am a Toy Story fan.

Not much really, the horse and maybe the minifig stands for the green toy soldiers. You're right about the many possible uses for the torsos and other minifig parts and they might be worth to pay for. But I fear that the sets won't be just figs but including some brick-built toys too, and if they are built like the remote controlled car that we've seen pictures of I don't think I will like them. A bit too colourful for me. I think the biggest problem for me with the Toy Story theme is that I'm not thrilled about the movies and therefore doesn't appreciate the sets that much.

Oh, and sorry for calling the minifigs "dorky", I should have expressed myself in a more constructive manner :blush:

Does what? Use acronyms? Yeah, if you're around the Star Wars forums a lot, you have to deal with many relatively long names, so you get used to using acronyms. It's just easier, and usually everyone knows what it means. Besides, it's not like I/we use leet speak. :hmpf:

You are forgiven though. :classic:

For those who think that 7591, 7592, and 7595 are just minifigs in a box, I am sad that you don't have more faith in TLG. :sadnew: I'm sure they will be more than just impulse sets.
