* Life moves on and things end. That's kind of the point of the movie. Might as well ask what happens when the kid in Air Bud grows up and the dog dies. Given Bonnie's mother works at the daycare and Bonnie herself spends no small amount of time there, chances are she'll donate them. Or pass them down to her kids. Or any number of things.

*** In fact, Woody specifically mentioned this in the first movie when trying to snap Buzz out of his depression. "You can glow in the dark!"

[[WMG: Did anyone find it just a little too coincidental how Buzz was able to be reset back to normal? I mean, after he gets smashed by a television set, suddenly changing back to his old self while retaining all of his old memories was the least thing I was expecting. I mean, isn't the purpose of a reset button to, I don't know, RESET? It just seemed like complete FridgeLogic held together by flimsy ScotchTape.]]

* Even Mattel's been treating Ken like a joke. In canon, Barbie and Ken officially broke up in 2004 and they started giving Barbie a [[GirlOfTheWeek a different love interest]] in every movie. The most notable Ken doll of the past few years was Sugar Daddy Ken...

* I remember practically drowning my [[ViseoGame/{{Pokemon}} Bellossom]] plushie in perfume when I was around six. More than ten years past and it hasn't dropped its scent since. It probably works the same for Lotso.

*** Harry Knowles from Aint it Cool had the same thought, but the fact is you’re a bunch of morons that are missing the point. Toys' main purpose in life is to be played with, that is their highest point of "living". Just having them be display as memoirs collecting dust would be terrible. The villain of the second movie was a Toy Collector after all.

[[WMG: When Buzz is finally back to normal near the end of the film he smells the area in the dump and says "That wasn't me was it?", so can toys fart now?, Love the rest of the movie, that was just a part that kind of bothered me]]

[[WMG: Though it's never said where Andy is going to college, even if its somewhere more than a few states away, why does he have to pack up his ''entire'' room? Will he not be coming back for winter or summer breaks at all? Dorms all small, who takes most of their whole room to college? I know it had to happen in order to drive the plot, but it did make me wonder.]]

* Andy using him as a toy makes sense as he has an excellent imagination. However, once he shows up at Sunnyside, one of the staff should have recognized that he's not really a toy and since most piggy banks are either ceramic or porcelain (though its never specified what kind of piggy bank Hamm is), he wouldnt last very long being played with so roughly. Best case scenario would be he gets placed on a desk as a paperweight.

*** It clearly reflects how Buzz has grown through the series. At the begining he was all buisness and duty and didn't truely understand friendship well, but throughout the series we find out that he has the potential to be a good friend. Like how theres a hero in that coward. The first time it was about Woody who always lived about this but now its about Buzz who learned the importance of friendship. As long as were reading too far into how things change slightly when translated.

* It was made only by Disney and while it could have bean good a couple years ago its bean 10 years since the last one came out at this point it kind of has to be an ending plot. Another thing is I can't see the end of that ine being neither cheesy nor depressing maby they would have pulled it off. The three stories cover slightly different things. 1 You can't always be number one/just because your life isn't what you expected doesn't mean your not awsome. 2. Just becaue your relationships will not always last and if they do last they will change doesn't mean you should avoid them. 3. Sometimes its important to move on/just because you're not literarely together does not mean you have to forget the good times you had together/if a relationship doesn't work out don't become a complete monster.

* Well its not like The Uncanny Valley is this all unavoidable thing when it comes to CGI. Every time you see a drawing of a character that doesn't creep you the fuck out the creator has avoided the uncanny valley; it just takes skill and knowledge to avoid. Two things Pixar has A LOT of. Along with wonderful modeling, I think one of the big things with Pixar managing to stay out of the valley though is the fact they don't use motion capture. This is often considered to be the real reason why movies like Polar Express sunk so deep into the valley. You have characters that are ''close'' to being human (but not quite) moving around ''exactly'' the way a human does. This gives the feeling of a moving corpse that some animation studios refuse to acknowledge.

* You already don't know who you're talking to on the internet unless you actually know them. Its actually cool how toys get more power to communicate with people in this high tech world. I think they made their own everything and Trixy will learn to make it so her account isn't visable as Bonnie gets older. Trixy had to have actually known Velocistar.

[[WMG: Am I the only person who thought that Stinky Pete and Lotso Huggin' Bear were essentially the same person? Er, toy? When Lotso monologue, I felt like I was listening to Stinky Pete.]]

* Both of them are evil because they are synical and they sound really simular and have sad backstories. Stinkey Pete thinks it will end too soon and he'll get destroyed in the process proberably from a combination of listening to Al and Jessie. Lotso believes that no kid ever loved a toy. Pete wants nothing of Woody he doesn't want for himself. Lotso sends other toys to the Caterpiller room so he doesn't have to go there. Pete wants to be famous and to live forever his goal matches his belief system. Lotso wants...to be played with by kids...dispite the fact that he thinks its all a lie. Pete only hurts Woody when Woody gets in his way and even then its because Woody can be fixed. Lotso hurts all the new toys his henchmen state they son't think the new toys will last a weak. There is a repair shop in the Butterfly room. I believe Pete has a genuine friendship with Jesse.

* Think about the plot of the film. First of all, she was Molly's lamp, and Molly was a baby in the first films. She is not anymore, and so its more than understandable that Mrs. Davis would give away her last child's baby things. Second of all, Bo is a porcelain figure. There is no way she would be donated to the day care, and most of the actions that the toys do in the movie (breaking out, being locked up, the incinerator stuff) would break her in two seconds. She could either be put on a bus or die. Which do you think Pixar would choose?

* Its mentioned by his sister Molly that it will become hers after Andy leaves, so basically he's storing his stuff in the attic so Molly could have the room.

** TV show toys start out acting like their model character, though, whereas Rex is a generic. The character of the decepticons in question likely ''resembles'' that of the show characters (Woody and Jessie are still similar to their source characters, after all), but how much their personality diverged and evolved on its probably depends on how well they adjusted to the reality of their toy nature (look at Buzz here, later-movies personality compared to earlier ones. He acts similar, but different).

I spent a large amount of the 2000s thinking that there was supposed to be text there. I knew of Buzz's crush on Jessie, wherever it came from, but I didn't think much of it. Come the third movie, and apparently Buzz and Jessie are the couple. I call RelationshipWritingFumble, even in the third movie its there in spades.
