    I want to get both Toy Story movies on DVD, but I'm not sure which way to get them. [​IMG]
    1) Purchase both movies separately (are there different versions?)
    2) Purchase the Pixar 3-pack that has TS, TS2, and Bug's Life (getting BL would be a nice bonus).
    3) Purchase the Ultimate Toy Box 3-DVD set whose 3rd disk is full of documentary-type stuff.
    Are the actual movies the same video and sound quality? Do the movie disks all have the same features? I.e., do all 3 disks that contain the first Toy Story movie have the same features?
    I have a Mits 55819, Panny RP91, Integra 5.2 receiver, and Paradigm speakers for equipment.
    Any help/opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
    Bruce

    ^ I second that. The Ultimate Toy Box is great.

    I would recommend the Ultimate Toy Box as well.
    In the Pixar set, A Bug's Life is non-anamorphic which isn't extremely important seeing you have the RP-91 which does the scaling.

    I to would have to recommend the: Ultimate Toy Box.

    Although, of course ask yourself if you are in to extras and all that, cause if you are not, I see no reason to go for the box, and instead go for the individual dvds.

    There are differences in the #1 and #2 disks themselves. Get the UTB.

    I'd suggest you get the Ultimate Toy Box set as well. It might be a little pricey but the third disc is really packed with extras. IMO, it's worth it.
    Let us know what you end up getting. [​IMG]

    I have almost the same equipment you do. Get the UTB. My 1.5 year old is going to spin these to death. I think I can quote both movies by now.

    What about the 2-disc TS 1 plus TS 2 version? Cheaper than the singles bought together -and- the UT version.

    If I had it to do over again I would Toy Story 1&2 + Bug's Life combo. While the extras in the ultimate toy box look great I wouldn't spend as much time watching them as I would A Bug's Life. I bought the two disc aka bare bones Toy Story set the day it was released and I still haven't watched all of extras on that.

    Better yet, get the UTB and the Bug's Life 2-disc collector's edition.

    Just bought R2 TS Boxset. Picture quality on both discs is sublime and sound on TS2 especially is top notch. Extras seem to be plentifull.

    we (UKR2) seem to miss out on audio commentaries and THX. I noticed that few months after buying it. Still a great set, that's why I kept it. I don't think that I'd watch the audio commentaries anyway. It takes ages to go through disc 3 anyway.

    Go with the Ultimate ToyBox. It has been one of the best DVD's I've bought. My 2 year old loves the films, and I love the documentaries. Something for everyone.
