Around November of last year, Disney fans were surprised to learn from a teaser released that time, that the thought-to-be finished “Toy Story” film trilogy from Pixar was getting a fourth installment. It was no surprise that LEGO would be quick to announce tie-ins for the movie that is set for release this coming June.
Following a few months of speculation, fans can finally take a gander at the first official images of the LEGO Toy Story 4 sets. These items are among the many products that the legendary toy brand introduced for the first time in the New York Toy Fair this past weekend.
Here’s a quick look at four of the expected tie-ins for Disney-Pixar’s “Toy Story 4”. These sets are all of the 4+ age designation that has since replaced LEGO Junior.
- Woody RC (10766) – something of a throwback to the original film way back in 1995; features Woody minifig, RC model racecar with remote, boxes, road cones and army men props; 69 pieces (US$9.99/$13.99 Canadian)
- “Toy Story 4” RV Vacation (10769) – apparently a road trip is a major part of this film; features Jessie and LGM minifigures, Rexy mini-doll figure and Forky prop; also includes models for RV, Grand Basin toll gate and wilderness cabin front; assorted other props include skateboard, apple, hotdog, mug, plate and lamp; 178 pieces (US$34.99/$49.99 Canadian)
- Buzz & Woody’s Carnival Mania! (10770) – we also know from later teasers that part of “Toy Story 4” takes place in a carnival, with some new characters; includes minifigs of Woody, Buzz, Bo-Peep and Bunny, plus Ducky prop; set features models of ice cream parlor, shooting gallery, octopus ride and two bumper cars; 230 pieces (US$49.99/$69.99 Canadian)
- Carnival Thrill Coaster (10771) – another major fixture of the carnival that our heroes will have their adventures in during the movie; features three-section roller coaster with oblong track plus pizza cart; includes Buzz and LGM minifigure; 98 pieces (US$19.99/$24.99 Canadian)
All these sets are coming out this April, while “Toy Story 4” from Disney and Pixar will arrive in cinemas on June 21.
