I'm sure I'm not the only one among Pixar's millions of acolytes, but it's safe to say I have either bought or seen every single incarnation of the first two Toy Story films that has ever been released. Walt Disney Home Video first released both of them as a two-pack in 2000, offering a three-disc Ultimate Toy Box at the same time, then followed up with individual releases in 2001, a two-disc 10 Year Anniversary Edition for Toy Story and a two-disc Special Edition for Toy Story 2 in 2005, and most recently reissued both films theatrically after redoing them in 3-D.

All of which is why it should come as no surprise that I once again hold in my hands copies of Toy Story 1 and 2, this time on Blu-ray, and as has seemed to be the case with each previous iteration, it's also safe to say that this is not only the best but should by all accounts be the definitive release of the first two installments Pixar's original CGI franchise.
