I finally watched this and I didn't initially set my hopes too high, but it was excellent. I actually think it was the most fun Toy Stories episode.

The tests were just hilarious, seeing Action Man blasted with supersonic air and torn apart, along with being shot up in a firework with his head coming to land in front of them had me in stitches. So did the rocket test that moved the entire rig. It was like watching an out-of-control episode of Mythbusters. :lol:


Also very pleased with the end result. :)

Glad I'm not the only one with the same thought.
I also think the same, that's not really in the spirit of what James and his crew are doing.

I think this special has what Top Gear is missing now; both James and Sim really seemed to enjoy making it.

Great googly moogly! I have never seen a Sindy doll, was it supposed to be so creepy looking?
