The Brick Show is back with a video review of LEGO Toy Story 3 set 7596, Trash Compactor Escape.
Jason confirms that all of the minifigures are "dirty" variants. What's also a nice detail is that the two alien figs have different face prints relating to the dirt and smudges. The dirt is also printed on the figs and are not stickers.
Now Jason claims that this will increase the collectability of the set. I'm not so certain. Die hard collectors may want it, but the jury is still out on if these variants will translate into high demand in the secondary market.
Still awaiting a couple more set reviews, which may be forthcoming. It's also very likely that these sets will be 'officially' available this weekend.
