This 4-figure Toy Story set (Buzz, Woody, Jessie, and Rex) has an undeservedly bad reputation on Amazon. Personally, I think they suffer from over-expectations. I’ve collected small pvc figures for years. (Mostly super-hero and anime characters.) These little figures are what they are. You’re not going to get fine sculpting and exacting paint jobs. The ‘state of the art’ has come a long way since I first began collecting, but still, the quality is never going to be at the level of a normal toy.
Once that’s understood, the charm of these characters really shows through. They’re colorful, they capture the essence of Toy Story… and this set includes Buzz Lightyear, which is enough to make me want them. Also, they make wonderul birthday cake toppers for your little Toy Story fan.
Oh, the price? I’ve paid nearly $8 for some of my single small pvc figurines; Up to $15 would have been okay with me. At the current price of $1.75…Even with shipping, it’s still decent. As far as shipping goes, yes, at this price, shipping will far exceed the cost of the toys. I did look into Amazon’s free shipping, but the seller with the $1.75 price does not participate in the free shipping program. Shipping is $7.95 with this seller. Other sellers offer them for around $9, and do participate in the free shipping program. Either way you go, looks like the price is going to be around 9 or 10 dollars. Still, for 3″ PVC figures, I find that an acceptable expenditure.
One of the reasons I love this type of figurine is the size. It doesn’t really matter how many I’ve got, they just don’t take up that much space!
Final Thoughts: True, the quality of small pvc figures suffers compared to normal toys. But that’s the nature of PVC figures. I love them, and am definitely ordering my set!
