Disney Heroes Review: Pixar Collection

without comments

The first Disney Heroes pack I reviewed took a single property and made most of the main characters from it. While I only grabbed two of the sets, this second one focuses on three of Pixar’s films: The Incredibles, Monsters Inc., and Toy Story. Taking two characters from each property, you end up with a very odd six-pack.

with one comment

I remember seeing the first Toy Story when it came out and I was 10, and then I vaguely recall seeing Toy Story 2 on VHS when it first came out. So in preparation for the third installment coming out this summer, I’ve added both to my Netflix queue. But once the Toy Story 3 Buddy Packs started coming out, I was told to get at least a few of them.
