YOU ARE A TOY by TomPreston YOU ARE A TOY by TomPreston
I hear this alot. Gamers professing that their console of choice is NOT a toy. It's a multimedia storage device which happens to play games.

I'm sorry but no... it's a toy. And there isn't anything wrong with it being called that. If you have a problem with your console being called a toy, then you've got insecurity issues.

Personally? I LOVE toys...

I would say "it's too good to be true," but the fact is, it is true, and that is something many people have forgotten in the wake of new technology.

The detail on Woody and the Playstation 3 is beautiful. You managed to capture Pixar's original style as well as Sony's technical design. I really can't get past the fact that this is so well drawn while being so ridiculously true. It almost needed to be said. People constantly forget that the term "toy" applies to more than just inanimate objects that exist for the sole purpose of entertaining children.

The only thing I would have wanted some improvement on is Woody's hands. They seem slightly deformed, but nonetheless convey the dilemma at hand...no pun intended.

I await more of your future toy troubles. :thumbsup:

Though this message that the "PS-Trizzle" and other high-def consoles being toys and not something less childish-sounding has been said a lot, I haven't heard it in the context of Toy Story before. As for the drawing itself, while the shading and coloring is quite good and colorful, some of the edges look a bit unpolished, especially on the PS3, which looks especially unpolished. Also, Woody's expression doesn't look quite right for the context. The expression does have the right anger to it, but the body motions don't really match what I would think the emotion was supposed to be. Maybe if Woody was pointing, it would work better. Still, I thought that in terms of the message, the Deviation delivered it quite well.

Yeah, PlayStation! Stop trying to be an 'entertainment center'. Just stick with the games. You were good at that: keep doing it!

I'm looking at you too, XBox >~>

Well...toys can be used for more than gaming these days.  First thought of my game systems as just game systems but, since the Nintendo DS came out with it's touch screens it became much more than that, an interactive education system, a camera, and an art tool.

Meh. I still love my PS3 no matter who calls it a toy or console. While all those other guys are complaining about the XBOX ONE and the PS4, I`m just playing some Modnation and LittleBigPlannet.

I once had an XBOX 360 fanboy that did a paid advertisement for the kinetic (this was before it came out) call the Wii a toy and insulted me for buying one. I tried saying video games were toys, but he didn't shut his face.

Hah hah hah! I totally agree with you. The gameconsoles are toys even they are different than those dolls and teddy bears you might have and more expencive. But like you said theres nothing wrong with that. Toys are toys and they are made for fun. Laughing
