  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Durability:

Pros:Flesh color, two versions, great facial detail, stenciled accents.

Cons:Only in a limited number of sets, overpriced by resellers.

The Bottom Line: If you are in to the Lego Toy Story series, Jessie makes for a great addition to your mini figure collection.





I wasn't sure if the Lego Toy Story sets were going to be a hit or not; when I saw the previews that were leaked on a foreign website I was stoked about them but they were not in full production so the designers could have easily changed the overall look of the characters and sets before a full release. I've only recently had the chance to watch Toy Story 3 from start to finish; I'd seen it but in twenty minute chunks on the DVR. The Lego crossover character figures are simply amazing and the designers went to great lengths to preserve as much of the detail of them as possible. That's not exactly easy to do when you are working with something that is about two inches. Even so, the Jessie mini figure is a nice addition to any collection and is just as cute as her movie counterpart.

The Jessie mini figure appears in three Toy Story themed sets so far; two of them are the basic 'happy' Jessie while the third is the one with the slightly scared look and the dirt pattern. You can find Jessie in the Woody's Roundup! and Western Train Chase sets and the alternate version with the dirt marks and scared look is in the Garbage Truck Getaway. There are differences to both of the figures so you can't buy the elements individually for the legs and torso in the hopes of making a 'happy' version of Jessie because the one with the first pattern appears on her face, torso, arms and leg pieces. The basic pattern of her cowgirl costume are the same but the dirt marks are what gives the alternate figure some nice appeal. Like the other human mini figures in the series she is done in flesh color which gives her a lot nicer look. Another thing that really makes her look nicer than the average female mini figure is that her head is sculpted and isn't done in peg fashion.

Which one is better? That's impossible to say because everyone is going to have likes and dislikes of the mini figure. I love the fact that there are differences to the figure but at the same time the overall design of the splotches on her legs, buttons, belt and hat are the same. You also have to take in to consideration that there are differences in her facial detail like the expression and dirt marks. Since the basic version of Jessie appears in two sets and the one with the dirt pattern only appears in one you might have to spend a little more to get that one. The lowest I have seen either of them sell for independently from the Toy Story themed sets is six dollars. Since all of the elements that are used to build Jessie are unique to the series they are something that you can't cull from other sets. Resellers are using hard ball tactics with this one; I have seen some sites trying to sell both versions for $19.99 which is funny when you consider the price of the sets she is packaged in. While none of them are cheap, spending twenty dollars on one figure is a complete waste of money. Invest in the set, sell off what you don’t want or trade for elements or mini figures you want.

If you are in to collecting the mini figures then Jessie does make for a nice investment because of the amount of detail that she has. Her clothing is balls on accurate to what you see her wearing in the films and her enhanced face piece gives her a lot more realism; if the designers would have went with a peg version she wouldn’t have looked as nice and when posed with other figures in the series she would have stuck out like a sore thumb. The downside to all of this is that the sets she is in are not cheap; the least expensive is in the fifty dollar range so you are going to want to do your homework to see which one is the best bet for your needs. There are rumors of a Lego Toy Story Collection being released that would have all of the sets plus promotional sets packaged together; Lego has done that in the past for other themes so it isn’t something that is completely unheard of.
