The Disney Store is an international chain of specialty stores selling only Disney related items, many of them exclusive. The store first began selling Toy Story merchandise in 1995, coinciding with the release of the first film with the original poseable Thinkway Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear. They made the Buzz Lightyear Space Rescue from the "Toy Story And Beyond!" toyline from 2002 - 2003
In 2002, Disney acquired the license by Thinkway Toys to continue producing the 1995 toys as in-store exclusives as Thinkway moved on to create newer versions of them. Thinkway Toys eventually got removed from the boxes, and the toys continued to sell, and even received updates by the Disney Store itself.
