Toy Box Mode
Toy Box mode is an open-world collection of gameplay opportunities where the player runs around and completes missions, plays minigames, or just meanders around and creates their own fun. Every mission once successfully complete awards a certain amount of gold. Players then use the gold to buy new buildings and building customizations and clothing for the inhabitants of the town, such as a haunted house that releases ghosts upon the world that must then be taken care of, or a bearded farmer whose lost cows the player has to rescue. The buildings can be customized and placed wherever the player wants, giving the town a personal touch, even down to the type of people who live in the town.
An exclusive version of the game for Xbox 360, Wii, and PS3 was sold at Walmart that included four additional Theme Packs for Toy Box Mode. The Theme Packs included Sports, Knights, Cutesy, and Military. Players can use the Theme Packs to decorate buildings and dress townspeople and aliens in different ways after spending 500 coins on each pack in the Al's Toy Barn area of the game. The Walmart exclusive version also features a reflective foil background on the front of the case, rather than the standard black.
Differences from the film
- In the train rescue scene, Jessie was the first to ride Bullseye, not Woody.
- One-Eyed Bart and One-Eyed Betty do not appear in the video game, possibly due to copyright issues with Hasbro.
- Buzz Lightyear didn't save the orphans by Woody tossing them to him.
- Evil Dr. Porkchop was not introduced until Rex came along.
- Woody, Buzz, and Jessie did not go to the basement to get the cordless phone.
- There were 4 of Sarge's soldiers instead of 2.
- The toys never played the Buzz Lightyear video game.
- Lotso did not give a carnival for the toys.
- The scenarios Bonnie played with her toys were not actually seen, but in the video game there are two levels based on her scenarios.
- Woody does not lose his hat in the video game.
- Chatter Telephone was not anonymous.
- Woody did not rescue the toys, they broke out.
- The toys did not go on a voyage during the garbage dump scene.
Exclusive Features for the PS3
You can play as Zurg and he has his own unique missions. He is also able to drive around in his custom vehicle. There were also some downloadable minigames released in fall 2010 for the PlayStation version.
- Older characters like Wheezy, Bo Peep, and Stinky Pete make appearances in the game.
- Hand-in-the-Box makes a cameo in the haunted house, as well as Toy Box mode if you make buildings look scary.
- During the first time playing through the haunted house (after clearing the 1st room) the song Grim Grinning Ghosts from the Disney attraction The Haunted Mansion can be heard. It plays in a continuous loop until the last room is cleared. Afterwards, the song cannot be heard again.
- On level 12 in the PSP Version of the game, you can play as the Aliens.
- Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head do not appear in the game. This could probably be due to copyright issues with Playskool, since Mr. Potato Head didn't always appear in certain Toy Story games.
- Ken and Barbie are not in the game either, but Ken's Dreamhouse is seen in the Sunnyside Daycare level.
- In level 2, if you go over to Andy's book shelf, you will see the book of the short Tin Toy and other shorts.
- Magic 8-Ball is seen on a shelf in the game.
- The Luxo Ball is used as an objective and ammunition to throw at targets (also with the star and stripe pattern).
- During the Buzz Lightyear video game, when the player reaches some booby traps that block the path, there is a secret passage: "To the left hidden in the shadows."
- Rex in Toy Box Mode, Bo Peep, Wheezy, and Bad Buzz are absent in the PC version. They are also absent in the Wii version (except Rex in Toy Box Mode).
- The Wii and PC versions have a lot of differences compared to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions:
- Buzz always has his helmet on.
- In Loco Motives Buzz doesn't throw the drone at the train and Hamm never shoots the bunkers.
- The Toy Box mode is missing a lot of features: Customizing structures, wells, the ability to use various tools, building structures, some places aren't featured, the utensils from each theme place can only be used where you obtain it, using vehicles out of the track.
- Most of the Sunnyside toys and Andy's toys don't appear in Fair Play.
- Bad Buzz doesn't appear in Hide and Sneak.
- The buildings in the Hunted Muffin don't take any damage.
