Love the look of the sets so far apart from the Zurg and Buzz "construction" sets. These two sets do not do it for me... yet.
The round up set looks like a winner from my children's viewpoint. Lots of little things to play with and the whole town acting as the play set. PERFECT!

The sheriff's office has two floors , looks really and includes even hinging doors!
Why does TLG not release this with regular minifigs as a non-licensed Western set?!

I'm very tempted now to go to D23 to be able to see them in person. Hopefully more close-up pics will surface soon!

The large Buzz and Zurg figures also look pretty good. Each seems to have a lot of pieces, which is good, and each very well represents their film character counterpart. The new Bionicle hands used on both were a great idea in my opinion, as well as the Bionicle Mystica launcher for Zurg.
I like how this line is turning out to be a smattering of everything all tied together: army cars, space ships, western towns, and giant guys!

I'm not liking the new bigger minifigs, but that giant Buzz "constraction" thingy looks rather nice. Depending on price - and alas, I avoid most licensed stuff because of that - I may get it. But the larger, more detailed minifigs, ugh. And since what I've seen of the Ben 10 cartoon suggests that it's strongly based on strange-looking characters, this may be a slippery slope....
You might hear little voices say....

I suppose you are right, but for some reason I hadn't expected it in the LEGO theme. Really though, in the movies there are only the little army guys and not a jeep, and the only spaceship was a cardboard packaging box that buzzs came in. I really only think of the characters themselves when I think of the movies, because the main focus of play for Andy (and Sid, I suppose) is only action figures, and action figures don't really come in whole setups.
I hope that explains why I was pleasantly surprised with everything LEGO has come up with, although I suppose it would be common sense.

Glad to see that the army men seem to be a very cheap set, $15-$20, that's awesome. A nice return to "Wild West", the space ship looks awesome and big Buzz is a nice use of that new dome piece.

All of those other sets look amazing, too! I can't wait for them to come out!
EDIT: In fact, I may even have to use some of the money from my LEGO Star Wars "budget" next year!

I really hope that the army men are battlepack price, which they look like they will be. Either way, I'll probably get multiples.

Also, how long until someone takes the Sheriff's Office/Jail set and points to it as evidence of the return of Western?

Toy Story: Second favorite theme.
Wow. All I can say is wow. With the confidential, blurry pics, I thought the only good set was the battle pack, but this has completely changed my mind. All that gorgeous purple and lime green! I want both those big buzz and zurg models sooooo badly, I'll buy the battle pack multiple times, the ship looks great, and the Western town is a must have. With so many great Star Wars, Toy Story, and then Prince of Persia ( ) sets coming out, my wallet will be not only hurting, but dead by the end of the year.
Yes, I think I might too. Darn, I need more money.
Long Live The Nizam!

Thanks, though. Can't wait for all that purple.

The Giants... Buzz is cool I hope his dome is useable. And Zurg, everyone, does NOT have that much purple. He has about 8 purple quarter-cylinders, a dish, a few slopes, maybe a couple of bricks, and a propietary head. Just because there is a ton of purple visible doesn't mean it's full of purple.

Just the new window shutters in orange.
It's funny, Alice and I were only talking the other week about how the new shutter pieces would work better as saloon bar doors than as window shutters, since they're so large
