Toy Story in Space Play Set
Toy Story in Space will be the sixth play set to be released in October and features Buzz and Jessie in the play set pack, with Woody sold separately. Players can go on a new space adventure with the Toy Story gang as they help to relocate the Pizza Planet Aliens to a new world. Explore and discover the secrets that lay below the surface of this new planet and unlock Space Ranger equipment to help defend the new colony and friends. The Toy Story in Space play set introduces hoverpacks, jetpacks, laser blasters, goo blasters, new mounts and more into the Toy Box mode.
