When is comes to Toy Story Characters there are so many choices for a collector to chose from. Woody alone has about 7 options to choose from and Buzz has about 12 options to choose from. The nice thing is that even though there are several options to choose from each one is themed differently. If I had to pick my favorites they would be the Black & White versions of Woody and Jessie from Woody’s Round up, the D23 expo Buzz & Woody and finally my favorite of favorite the Toy Story Mania Buzz, Woody, Jessie.
Since the release of the Classic Vinylmation Series I’ve been a fan of the Black & White Vinylmations. So when Toy Story Series 2 came with a Black & White Woody and Jessie from the TV show called “Woody’s Roundup” I fell immediately in love with them. I must admit I’m a pushover for the Black & White/Gray toned Vinyls and these guys are no exception! I just love them.
One can also say that the D23 Expo Japan 2013 Toy Story Woody and Buzz Lightyear characters are well done as well. At first glance seeing Woody and Buzz wearing the D23 Mouse Ears instead of their trademark cowboy hat and space helmet were a bit to take in but only after a few seconds the characters right at home with their new gear.
Then on the other end of the Spectrum are the hand drawn and highly colorful versions that were done by Andy from Toy Story Mania Characters that are displayed along the queue and the ride itself. Oh, and lets not forget the Little Green Alien. A nice touch is that on the bottom of each character have Andy hand written on the bottom of the feet just like in the movie these are probably my favorite of all the Toy Story Vinylmations that are out there right now.
So what collection of Vinylmations do you like? Is it the Mickey’s? Or maybe its Minnie’s? Perhaps it’s the Green Men? There are so many options available to the collector and in my eyes they all look great!
