WOOHOO! Finally some set pics!
Army Men: This set is pretty much everything we could have hoped for. Two
Price estimate: $10
RC: No surprise here. It seems to come with some sort of ramp, though, like the Racers sets. Price estimate: $20
Buzz: Absolutely gorgeous!
Words can not describe the happiness that I feel when looking at this set! I have been building such Buzz mocs since I was a little kid, and now it's an official set!
I absolutely don't mind the one-mold head, and I am actually very happy to see Bionicle style joints being used. I was hoping for a light brick on the arm with the wrist laser, but it seems to be just a flick-fire missile.
Oh well, I guess I was being too optimistic there. However, the wings look great, and they even look like they just might be retractable somehow.
And it's great that this comes with a Buzz and LGM fig.
Price estimate: $40-50
Zurg: Looks also very good, but a bit juniorized. I can't see much in this pic, except that it includes one of those Bionicle bazookas, and Zurg & LGM figs. I'll have to hold on to further judgment until I see a better pic. It would have been nice if TLC could have recreated his three-barreled blaster more accurately, but I guess this adds good playability, and might make the set a bit cheaper. Price estimate: $40
I'm very happy that those two come with their respective minifigure counterparts. I wonder if they are sort of mechs for the minifigs to steer. I could imagine there being little cockpits inside those one-mold heads.
Buzz's Star Command Spaceship: Now, this one is kind of a disappointment. I had high hopes for this set, but it turned out much different than I thought.
It looks kinda thrown together and rather juniorized, and it has little resemblance to its counterpart in the movie AND the cartoon. However, this might only be due to the preliminariness of this pic. I'll have to wait for final pics to judge it. Price estimate: $30
Woody's Round Up: This looks like a very well designed set, even though not many details are to be made out.
Personally, I am a little disappointed that this got the spot for the larges set, mostly because I have way too many Western sets for my liking already, but I guess this was to be expected. Western fans should be very happy now. Can't wait to see the details on this beauty. Price estimate: $80
I feel quite relieved now that I know what the sets look like that I commited myself to buying since the Disney license was announced.
I'll be getting these the moment I can get my hands on them, and I'll be sure to make some reviews. I might even get multiples.
As you can tell, I'm really excited for these sets, and I'll very surprised if most of them don't sell well.
