Review: The Art of Toy Story: 100 Collectible Postcards

The Art of Toy Story: 100 Collectible Postcards

This set of 100 postcards contains art from all the three Toy Story movies. Most of them are storyboards, character designs and the rest are sketches, pastels lighting studies. They are all pretty nice. When you lay them all out, you'll see a lot of white (with drawings of course) because a lot of storyboards are featured.

You'll see a few familiar pieces of art if you have the book Toy Story The Art and Making of the Animated Film. There are some new ones also, mainly from Toy Story 2 since there wasn't any art book released for the sequel. So you'll get to see character designs for Jessie, Stinky Pete and Bullseye.

I counted two postcards that had art from Toy Story 3, one of which is a big pastel "3". That's a far cry from the product description "the set will feature an exclusive selection of art from the highly anticipated Toy Story 3". So much for marketing speak.

The cutting of these postcards aren't perfect in the sense that they aren't all of equal size. Some are cut about 1mm off. Not a big deal but I do like every piece to be of equal size. I also have The Art of Pixar: 100 Collectible Postcards which are cut perfectly.

If you're a big Pixar fan, this is for you. If you're looking to buy one as a gift, I would recommend "The Art of Pixar: 100 Collectible Postcards".
