Disney fans Toy Story hype

Special Lego models of Woody and Buzz Lightyear appear at Venice Film Festival.

Lego models of Toy Story characters Woody and Buzz Lightyear were unveiled by Disney Consumer Products as part of a dedicated Toy Story themed family area at the 66th Venice Film Festival.

Constructed from 13,600 Lego bricks in 150 hours, this was the global unveiling of the Woody model (pictured). The Buzz Lightyear model, seen for the first time in Europe, was made from 40,000 Lego bricks in 250 hours.

Earlier this year, the Lego Group and DCP inked a multi-year licensing agreement resulting in the development of Lego and Lego Duplo products for three franchises - Disney/Pixar's Toy Story and Cars, plus Prince of Persia - all scheduled to launch in 2010.
