Woody and his friends must race across the train to rescue the captive Rex!
The train features a modular design, making it easy for kids to assemble and disassemble.
Measuring 23 inches in length, the train features four different cars: a steam engine, a box car, a passenger car, and - of course - a caboose. Each car has been detailed with an impressive level of detail - from the red cowcatcher grille in front to the translucent windows on the caboose. Kids will enjoy playing with each individual car, linking them together, and rearranging their order. While the train doesn't feature a motor, it can easily be rolled around by hand.
There are plenty of additional features to keep the toy interesting. Our 11-year-old tester especially appreciated some of the more interactive parts of the set - like the opening side doors, trap door ceilings, and rolling wheels. These features make the train not only a fun building project, but also a fun toy in its own right.
Reenact Scenes from Toy Story 3
Featuring Toy Story-themed minifigures, this set gives kids everything they need to reenact the exhilarating train chase scene from Toy Story 3. The set includes minifigures of Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Jessie, Bullseye the Horse, Rex, and Dr. Porkchop. Builders can take up the role of Woody, as he races to rescue the captive Rex from the Evil Dr. Porkchop. Kids can either choose to follow the movie's narrative, or invent their very own story. An Easy, Engaging Build
With 584 pieces, the Desert Destruction set will provide an intermediate challenge for younger kids. It took our tester (an accomplished LEGO builder) about two and a half hours to fully assemble. In addition to the more traditional blocks and sticks, the set includes various embellishing pieces that help make the train look more realistic.
The set comes with a colorful, step-by-step instruction manual to assist you in building. Or, if you're not interested in building the pre-designed train, you can use the many hinges, blocks, and embellishing pieces to build your own, unique creation.
What's in the Box
584 lego pieces and an instruction booklet.
Join Woody, Buzz, and the entire gang on a rollicking adventure across the Wild West.

This is a five star train for kids in the 5 to 8 year old range. Older kids may be more interested in the City line trains (7938 and 7939) or the Harry Potter Hogwart's Express train (4841). The City trains, incidentally, are the only ones that come as complete sets with track, motors and remote control devices.
Wow, this is a good looking train! I believe that the photos and box art for the set don't do justice to how it looks when it is built, and how much fun it is to play with. This is an Old West 4-4-0 steam engine, box car, passenger car, and caboose. I would describe the design as more cartoon-like than realistic, with the engine having exaggerated proportions and the cars a tad short. The set includes no track or motor. It is designed as a push train. The engine uses four new drivers (and comes with two extra un-flanged drivers) as well as a cattle-catcher (a new part). The train cars themselves are short but attractively designed. As with the other new trains for 2010, this set is largely brick-built (i.e., few specialized plastic moldings). The set includes Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Bullseye, Rex, and Evil Doctor Pork Chops mini-figures. The passenger car and the caboose are designed with lift-off tops to make it easier to place characters inside, and the box car has a trap door in the roof. The caboose and the passenger car also have doors at each end, but these are hard to close unless you lift off the top. And I find that the engine is not as sturdy as I would like (e.g.Read more ›
On to the product itself:
The contents were very nicely packaged, in what turned out to be separate portions of the instructions tied to the numbered bags of parts. The instructions were very clear, with little text, but with very good three dimensional graphics that provided all the information needed to assemble the various train cars without the annoying text found in so many instructions. The only portion of the instructions that wasn't spot-on was the assembly of the Toy Story characters. It turns out that not all the parts for the characters are in the character bag - a few key parts were actually in the bag used in the next set of instructions. Once that was figured out, all was well.
During construction, I began to notice that the fit and finish of the parts was extremely well done. After final construction, I was amazed that I could run my fingernail across the length of one of the railroad cars and it felt like one solid piece! That's got to be some manufacturing feat. Along with the fit and finish, the cars and characters are fully functional. For example, the two doors on the caboose actually opened and closed, the wheels turn very easily but were not wobbly at all, the cars interlocked well. The detail in the painted parts, especially the characters, was very well done.Read more ›
Over time Lego sets have been introduced that can be used to build items from the Star Wars universe, as well as many other sources (comic book characters, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, etc.) including the world of Disney/Pixar's Toy Story, which bring us to this wonderful set.
With this set builders get the pieces needed to build the train along with the character figures for Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Jessie, Bullseye, Rex and Hamm as "Evil Doctor Porkchops".Read more ›
