Arrived on time & in great condition.
I have always wanted a genuine Woody replica ever since the 1st Toy Story in 1995. I settled for less with the older models but when this guy came out, I had to get it. 15 years later I finally have the closest thing to the real Woody available. With only a handful of forgivable differences that may still bother collectors, like facial expression & joined fingers, this is still, by far, the best Woody around.
The pictures really do show the best of the details so there's no need to elaborate there, but it's weird to look back at the older models & see just how inaccurate they were.
The interactive mode is always a hoot when someone isn't expecting it. Unfortunately, he switches onto interactive mode every time you pull the string. You do have to pull his string again to switch him off interactive mode (instructions are a bit vague here). I thought this was a bit annoying, I was hoping he would have 2 separate modes like the Buzz figure.

There are cheaper versions of these around. Not the Toy Story Collection, but the Toy Story 3 line of toys. These versions look almost identical to the Collection series, they seem to be able to take more damage and only have a few features missing.
I would recommend that line for young kids & the Collection line for the collectors.
The figure itself seems quite strong. I have had mine for a month now & he has been knocked around a bit & is still in perfect shape. A common complaint about wear & tear is Woody's vest. The stitching in the vest can come loose if one is not careful when trying to get at the battery pack. If the kids are young it may be better have an adult do this. Having said that, I found out about this design flaw early and as a result, I have avoided it so far.

The Toys Story Collection Woody is an absolute must for toy story fans young and old. But again I would recommend the standard (less expensive) Toy Story 3 line of toys for the very young kids.

It's a very well crafted toy. It got delivered today (3th of August 2010)and I must say the packaging is amazing.
To open the box is a bit tricky and kind of a hassle but when you finally get Woody out of the box, you can see and feel the details of this collectible. The fabrics and the use of different materials used for the hat are great. His jeans really does feel like an actual jeans and the buttons on his vest have a similar feel to a pushpin. The quality of his articulation is fantastic.
The only minor thing about Woody is his support that comes with the box. It's very unstable.
Everyone who's a die-hard fan of Toy Story, should get this one asap.

(TIP: When opening the box, take a cutter and open the bottom of the box.)

I was so excited to discover that thinkway toys have produced a line of toys that are the toy story exact film replicas! This toy will not disappoint, you really have an actual woody doll! He is so much like the film woody that you expect him to come alive too! Can't wait to collect them all. Also the packaging is fantastic too! A must have for pixar fans!!

After buying the Toy Story 1,2 and 3 boxset on Blu-Ray i really wanted to find a decent Woody doll. I came across this collection and at first i thought that they were too expensive, but i kept coming back on Amazon to look at it anyway! So i decided to buy it along with Buzz Lightyear and oh my god they are so cool! They really do look identical to the film toys in every way. This toy is well worth the money if You want 'the real thing' as opposed to the cheaper plastic versions on offer.
If You have two or more figures in the 'Andys Toy Collection' they will communicate with each other and will say lines from the films. The box Woody comes in is a replica from Toy Story 2 and comes complete with a stand to display him.
I absolutely love this figure.....and i'm 28 years old!!!! Like others have stated, i'm unsure how well it would fare with younger children as, even though it is well made, may fall apart if your kids played with it like Andy does in the films. (sliding down the bannister probably not a good idea!) That said, if kids want the toys 'from the film' you cannot get better than these! Absolutely spot on! Delivery only took 2 days too so well chuffed!

We bought Woody for our 4 Year old daughters birthday, to be honest it is probably to nice for a 4 year old, the detail is fantastic, he is just like the films, she has had him a month and so far he has worn well; dropped many times dragged along the floor and played with properly and he still looks good.

It is a good buy worth the money.

In 1995 I remember going to Disneys MGM studios (now Hollywood Studios) and getting my first Buzz Lightyear and Woody the Sheriff. They were no where near as movie accurate as this! The old Woody had a very square body and proportionate sized legs and arms, which is not movie accurate. This Woody doll is 100% movie accurate. The hat even has the stitching around the rim. The head is still plastic of course but then what else can they do, and as always for some reason the pull string still whips back in as aposed to the films slow draw back. That aside this is incredible. If you ever had a Woody toy before and thought 'i wish he looked a little closer to the one in the film" then look no further!

This is a must for anyone who loves Toy Story.

My Woody is a quality toy that brings fun and laughter to me, i love all the phrases. The interaction function is good fun but sometimes it does not respond instantly if at all. I bought Buzz lightyear and they do respond to each other most of the time. Woody is a genuinely well crafted figure with a great feel and look to it. The paint work and clothes look just like the films character figure. The stand has a tight fit around Woody's neck and can scuff the neck area of the figure. Woody is now back in his box and part of my collection. Well worth the money i paid and i recommend it to anyone who loves Toy story.

To put it simply, this Woody will be the most definitive to ever be released. Lovingly made from the data used in the three films, this product is an absolutely spot on rendition of the character we all know and love from the critically acclaimed and beloved Toy Story trilogy. The toy is more than sturdy enough to be given to a child to play with to their hearts content. The beauty of the product is that it's not just a collector piece, but also a toy that will bring hours of joy to anyone and will last for years to come.

The choice of phrases are fantastic and the interactive mode is good fun. The quality of the clothing is spot on and will last for a long time, whether for play for display. I think the certificate of authenticity is a lovely touch, and I have framed mine and it sits on the shelf proudly next to Woody. Very kind of John Lasseter himself to approve of the product.

The only slight negatives is the fact that the toy isn't voiced by Tom Hanks himself, but his brother, Jim. However, it's near enough a spot on match so there's nothing to worry about. I found that the stand included in my set is a little too big for Woody, unless you want him to be dangling in the air, and not touching the base, as the promotional pictures show. It's not a problem for me as I prefer to have him sat on the shelf, rather than upright on the stand, but it's nothing that a quick bit of sanding down can't fix.

It's worth noting that "ANDY" is not on the shoe of the toy. This is because the product is designed to not strictly be Andy's Woody from the films, but more a Woody of your own, as the packaging suggests, given it is in the style of the 50's / 60's box we see in Toy Story 2. The bottom of the boots are glossy, however, allowing you to put a name on there, whether your own or Andy's.

It's brought back a great deal of nostalgia for me [and now I can pass my 15-year-old Woody toy on to someone else, much like Andy does at the end of Toy Story 3], and I now own a definitive version of Woody. The only way that the toy will get any more definitive is if Tom Hanks did all the dialogue, but it's an unnecessary addition given the voice is fine in its own right.

Toys R Us are currently have it for £39.99 on their website. It isn't available for delivery, but can be reserved in a local store if they have stock. The in-store price is £49.99, but their online price guarantee will give you the £10 off.

10/10.

Everything about this version of Woody is completely wonderful! He doesn't have a gormless look like so many of the other ones, has a tonne of sayings, depending on which version you switch him to - interactive or play mode. You can even turn him off which is brilliant when you're in church and your toddler wants to play on the floor! And the switch is located behind a fold in his clothes so my toddler can't get to it, which makes it even more perfect lol.

His hat fits wonderfully, because it's made from a type of plastic that slightly stretches over his head - so is easily removed but won't fall off when he's being whirled around in the air and upside down. My kid is obsessed with Toy Story so it's constantly on the telly, - meaning I've sat there and compared every part of this Woody with Woody in the films and there is literally no difference in look. His hands rotate in the sleeves, you can turn his head in any direction, and he won't sit up, just like in the movies. If you also want Bullseye, I'd recommend getting the 18" one from the Disney Store for £25. They fit perfectly together, despite Bullseye not being interactive. It's just he's a little expensive once you've paid out a lot for this Woody and Buzz.
