Coolness. Thanks for the heads up.

Looks like "Air Raid Buzz", "Surfing Woody" (the one pictured in the catalogue isn't "Surfing Woody" as far as I can tell, despite the fact it's on a surfboard) and "Super Soaker Zurg" are the only ones that resemble their movie-screen appearance/costumes though.

Not sure whether to weaken and grab these as a bargain or wait for the inevitable influx of new merchandise for Toy Story 3.

Cheers.

Missed out on the oddly proportioned Toy Story figures at ALDI (none of them had any movie-accurate Woody figures).

However, found Mattel's new 6" line of Toy Story action figures at Big W for the OVER-INFLATED price of $27.00!!!

They had "karate-chop" Buzz Lightyear (which looks pretty movie-accurate and semi-decent articulation which would probably be hindered by his action-feature), "lassoo" Woody (looked movie-accurate, but minimal articulation and what there was would probably be impeded by the action-feature) and on the back of the packets they were also advertising a "Rex" (I think with some kind of jaw-snapping feature).

I had grabbed a Woody and Buzz straight away, but almost dropped them as soon as I saw the price. They went straight back on the shelves for sale time or I'll just wait for the inevitable true-scale figures when Toy Story 3 is released.

Cheers.

Speaking of Toy Story......I can'twait to see what Lego have planned for 2010!!! Smile

Also, this year's Toy Fare in Melbourne Funtastic had on display various electronic 'true scale' Toy Story toys on show. These each came in the packaging used in the films. Now I'm pretty sure these were due later this year or possibly early 2010.

Toy Story Lego?! My god! That is....making me speechless!

And damn, I used to have a 'true scale'-type woody, but he wasn't pullstring (by the time I got it they were out of production).
A mate had a chrome-look-plated buzz.
I'd love to get one of each in that series, depending on price of course!

Found the same figures at K-Mart as those they had at Big W, but only $16.00 instead of $27.00. They also had plenty of the "Rex" figures.

Still a "pass" for me at that price, but they're looking more tempting.

Cheers.
