Welcome to my Toy Story 3 guide. This is one of the better movie tie in games I’ve played to date. The controls are simple and intuitive and really bring to mind the Sly Cooper games from PS2. The game is split up into 2 parts, first is a fairly linear story mode and the other (the Toy Box) is like a sandbox game where you run around and complete various missions and search for capsules to upgrade your people and town, etc.. There is nothing too terribly hard but I’ll try to be as in-depth as possible.

Step 1 – Play through story mode first.

I’ve created a collectible guide for the story mode and it can be found here. You'll need all the collectibles from story mode to open up items and events in the Toy Box mode. In addition to grabbing the collectibles you'll also want to do "No Toy Left Behind", "Space Ranger Elite","True Carny", and "Sneaky Sneaky" on their respective levels. This portion of the game will take 4 - 6 hours depending on skill.

Step 2 – Now you can work on the "Toy Box" mode.

WARNING: One of the Pict-O discs can glitch, found on top of the Hotel, and never spawns. If this happens, then you will also not be able to complete and earn Pict-O-Collector , Pict-O-Master or Gold Super Star . Unfortunately the only solution is to start a new game.

The big focus here is finding all the prize capsules, completing the missions, and doing the tasks to earn gold stars. This is time consuming and some of it will depend on how lucky you are in finding the capsules and completing the tasks for the stars. Expect to be running around for 8 to 10 hours here. Please note to SAVE OFTEN as the game DOES NOT auto save after missions or collecting an item. Anything you don't want to repeat be sure to save right after it. I've got a guide for the star missions here, a guide to the photojournalist missions here and a checklist of all the items here. It seems a lot of people are having problems finding the capsules in the stunt park so I've done a mini-walkthrough of the entire section locating all the capsules and it can be found here.

Step 3 - Do the Pict-O-Matic challenges.

You can do this at any time during your Toy Box playthrough but I'm going to suggest you do this after you have recieved the Western Collector gold star. The reason is once you have all the prize capsules it will make it easier for you to know that you are using the right customization pieces and will save you the headache of thinking your game is glitched because you swear you are using the right items. There are multiple items that look simliar so do yourself a favor and get everything first. I have a guide for the Pict-O-Matic disc locations and the specific mission requirements here. All 40 of these will take a little over an hour to complete if you just run straight through them.

Cleanup anything you may have missed. If you went solo on the collectibles and came up short on a couple, just check the guide linked above and it should be no sweat to find what you are missing. And if you haven't already done it then now is a good time to do Mapnipulator.

If you still need more help or want to finish as fast as possible, I have also placed a step by step walkthrough for the entire game here. I wrote this walkthrough for the Xbox 360 version of the game but I have personally verified that all the collectible locations and required missions are the same.

Hope you had fun with this great game and if you hated it, well maybe the guide will help make it less painful. Thanks for reading.

Special thanks to CrustyDirtDemon on x360a for his advice and helping with the last few collectibles.

[PST Would Like to Thank Scrapdaddy for this Road Map]

Toy Story 3 Champion
Congratulations-you've earned all the trophies for Toy Story 3! (11) 

This unlocks after collecting all the other trophies referenced in this guide.

Train Catcher
Finished 'Loco Motives' 

Complete level 1. Story related and cannot be missed.

You will unlock this shortly after defeating Ham the second time. It only takes a single ball tossed at the target beneath his ship.

Off the Hook
Finished 'Hold the Phone' 

Complete level 2. Story related and cannot be missed.

You will unlock this shortly after landing all four army guys by the phone in the basement.

Just to be clear level 2 is not the Toy Box level. To get back to the story mode from the Toy Box, just hit start and “Exit to Game Board”. Then pick Andy’s house for level 2.

Defeat Zurg
Finished 'To Infinity and Beyond' 

Complete level 3. Story related and cannot be missed.
You will unlock this shortly after defeating Zurg. If you are having trouble check my walkthrough here for strategy.

Carnival Conqueror
Finished 'Fair Play' 

Complete level 4. Story related and cannot be missed.

At a minimum, you need to complete the 3 mini games in this area with at least a bronze. Once you have that done, you need to speak to Lotso (the pink bear that you spoke with at the beginning of this level) to complete the level. The trophy unlocks shortly thereafter.

Rocket Launcher
Finished 'Witch Way Out' 

Complete level 5. Story related and cannot be missed.

This trophy unlocks shortly after placing the last large battery in the machine and crossing the bridge to the big red switch.

Making a break for it
Finished 'Hide-N-Sneak' 

Complete level 6. Story related and cannot be missed.

This trophy unlocks shortly after rescuing the third prisoner. They are Rex, Ham and Slinky.

Mashing the Masher
Finished 'Trash Thrash' 

Complete level 7. Story related and cannot be missed.

This trophy unlocks shortly after opening the top of the engine with Jesse and Woody and then tossing a block inside with Buzz.

Muffin Massacre
Finished 'Muffin to Fear' 

Complete level 8. Story related and cannot be missed. If you are having trouble with this final boss here is a relatively painless method to take it out:

Run to the bakery where the muffins are coming from. Just run straight up the hill and take up a position on either side. Turn 180 and start blasting the muffins as they come towards you up the slope. After this first wave some more small muffins and a large one get shot out past you into the street. The reason for running up the hill should now be apparent since the only attack the big muffin has is a shockwave that can't travel up the slope, so just stand there and pick them off again.

Repeat as needed until a large wedding cake replaces the bakery. On the next phase, 5 little witches come out so just head over to the new cannon that just beamed up, hop in and blast away. One life bar down.

Now a big witch comes out so either step on the warp pad to cross over to the cow launcher or just run over to collect power-ups for ammo or health if you need to. Jump onto the new gun that just showed up and let the cows fly. Second life bar gone.

The third life bar is just a repeat of the first and the fourth life bar is just a repeat of the second. On the final life bar, you get both small and large witches at the same time and you need to bounce back and forth between the two guns. Start with laser cannon to thin out the small witches until there are only 2 or 3 so you won't have to deal with all the green bubbles. Then hop on the warp pad to be launched over to the cow cannon and blast away at the large witch. Repeat this pattern until the witch's lifebar is emptied. Also, be sure to run out to grab ammo and health if you need to. The trophy unlocks shortly afterwards. Congrats and end of Story Mode.

The Collector
Gather every collectible in the game 

See the collectible guide here. Unlocks after collecting all the collectibles in Story Mode. This trophy is for story mode only and does not have anything to do with the Toy Box level.

Explored all the objects on the map 

On the "board game" screen you need to move your crayon over all the objects on the map and press . Starting from the left:

  • The dice
  • The yellow boat
  • The checkers pieces
  • The fish
  • The cannon
  • The treasure chest
  • The chess piece
Sneaky Sneaky
Finished the Prison Break without ever tripping an alarm (6) 

This is unlocked for completing the stealth mission (level 6) without being spotted by any lights.

I used this method: Start as Woody and go around and hit the switch to release Jesse. Switch to Jesse, and then push the red basket straight out of the hole to the wall. Hop up and hang to find out where Buzz is. Once it's clear, move to the top of the nearest table and then through the gate spotlights. Move up the darts and wall jump to the top avoiding the red light. Head right and tap the switch. Now head left and jump to the wall. Shimmy to the end and prepare to jump. Even though it looks like the light will see you it won't. Now quickly while the light moves along the bottom toward you leap over it, and move to the end. By now the other has dropped from the top so leap it quickly and drop down to free Rex.

Switch to Woody and head back to the first table. If you need to you can still switch to Buzz to see where he is at, you just can't control him. When the coast is clear, dash to Slinky’s gate spotlights and zip up to the hook. Now double jump past the next hook and latch on to the middle or third one instead to land on the shelf. Move up the wall and over the door to the 4 lights. Watch the pattern, then move to the third light (from left), then second, then to the switch. Now back over the door and down the wall. Jump down to Slinky. Check on Buzz and then dash to Ham's gate spotlights. If you need a breather, head to the top of a table. Go through the gate, up the ramp and then zigzag across the platforms to the switch on the top. Hit it and jump to Ham for the finale and trophy.

Space Ranger Elite
Reach Zurg's base without losing all your health (7) 

This is done on the first part of story mode level 3. Thanks to Hustlinonradio for his input to this trophy which I’ve tweaked below.

I suggest not getting any of the collectibles when you are making this run. The flight section is fairly easy if you just rapidly shoot and remember to press to dodge left and right plus move up and down to go through the holes. The section after this with the meteor shower is the easiest part of this level since you can just walk in a straight line and you will not be hit. The platforming section after this is the toughest part of the mission and you need to be careful and definitely be on the fragments or else you may fall off.

At the first geyser location avoid the fight completely by just jumping into the geyser and skipping to the next section. At the second geyser location, kill the spiders first and be aware that when they die, they send out a shock wave ring that can hurt Buzz, but can be easily dodged by jumping.

After killing the spiders, destroy the main crystal and then pound the 2 pieces back into the ground quickly. You can then leap into the geyser again to avoid the fight. The next platforming section is the toughest one yet as the rock fragments are moving. Make sure that you are really careful when jumping to the platforms because even if you are on the edge and get the climbing animation you could still fall because of the constant movement of the platforms. Just take your time and use hover if needed and you should succeed.

Finally, on the last area with the third geyser try and rush to accomplish the goal right away before you are overwhelmed. Before destoying the vibrating crystal, walk around and destroy the 4 spiders in the area. Once that is done, destroy the main crystal and there are 5 rock pieces to push back into place. The first 2 can be reached by jumping. So do that to the 2 farthest from the geyser. The other three require you to use the geyser and float to them. While pounding them into place destroy only what you have too and when you put the last one in place quickly rush to the geyser to float away to safety. However, if you are engaging with the enemies, I suggest doing it fast and take advantage of the crystals and the spider robots because these can clear multiple enemies and with the spiders the whole field. Either way, after you jump the last geyser and use your laser on the Zurg turret, fall in the hole and the trophy unlocks.

True Carny
Achieve gold on all carnival games 

Complete the mini games in the “Fair Play” area (story mode level 4). There are a total of 3 and each one is initiated by talking to a different toy.

  • Green bug guy (Twitch) = Bullseye’s balloon race
  • Robot (Sparks) = Teeny racer challenge
  • Brown rocky dude (Chunk) = Alley throw.

You need to get the best score on each event to get the 3 collectible cards and this trophy.

No Toy Left Behind
Rescue all the orphans on the Train 

Story related and found in level 1. There are 6 orphans on the train and you will run into them as you progress through the level. They are all in the open along the way and not too hard to find so when you see one just press and Buzz will swoop in to carry them off to safety.

We can rebuild him
Collect all of Zurg's Parts 

See the collectible guide here and look under the “Fair Play” area (story mode level 4) for the locations. There are 4 pieces head, body, cape and gun and they are noted as “ZP” in the guide.

  • Buzz from level 3
  • Daycare from level 4
  • Blue Dog from level 5
No Claw Required

Welcome to Town
Finished the Woody's Roundup tutorials 

You need to follow Ham around and complete his first couple of missions. They are “Destroy the old shack”, “Clean up the town” (break 3 more sheds), “Give an alien a hat”, “Paint a building” and finally “Talk to Stinky Pete”. After talking to Pete, you will be able to use a pick. Find the nearest piece of gold and press which will unlock Bullseye at the store and your trophy.

Gold Super Star
Collect all the Gold Stars  (6) 


See Pict-O-Collector for details of a glitch that can stop you earning this trophy.

There are 103 Gold Stars to collect. There is an in-game list in the pause menu that shows you all of them and checks off the ones you have already completed. Most are self explanatory i.e.: "kill 'X' number of this type of enemy" but some are vague and confusing. This is probably where you will be spending the majority of your time. My suggestion is to play through the game missions and collect all the prize capsules you see because some of the stars will unlock during the course of regular play. Once you are done with the missions, you can just go through and finish the ones you still need to complete. I've got a guide here.

First Sale
Buy a toy from the Toy Store 

Just buy something from the store in toy box mode. The stores are the Al’s Toy Barn Chicken Suit Machines.

Toy Collector
Purchase all the items in the Toy Store (3) 

Just buy every item from the Al's Toy Barn Chicken Suit Machine.

The items in the store unlock for purchase during the course of completing the Toy Box missions and you will get an on-screen notification when something new is available. Money can be obtained from mining the gold that is lying around, completing missions and destroying enemies.

Complete 1 disc of Pict-O-Matic missions 

See Pict-O-Matic Master.

Find all 6 discs of Pict-O-Matic missions  


These are scattered around like the prize capsules but look like the actual Pict-o-Matic device. The locations can be found here.

WARNING: One of the discs can glitch, found on top of the Hotel and never spawns. If this happens, then you will also not be able to complete and earn Pict-O-Master or Gold Super Star. Unfortunately, the only solution is to start a new game.

The disc should appear on top of the Hotel (pictured below), after you have purchased it from the store and it has been built. The Hotel will only be available for purchase from the store, after completing "Blow up the Dam" mission.


Complete all Pict-O-Matic missions  (2) 


You get the Pict-O-Matic device for completing the "Lost and Found" mission given by a cowboy townsperson. Once you have it, you can select it in the list by pressing or . It looks like an old blue gameboy. Then click and you can scroll through all the available missions that you have unlocked so far, there are 40 total. All you have to do is create the "scene" shown in the picture by either making the person at the tailor from the prizes you've found all around or customizing the building with your toolbox to match. The thing to note is that sometimes it does not have to be an exact match. For example, it might show the background as a grassy field but you don't need to be in the grassy field, you just need to create the person(s) or object(s) as shown. Or it might show a brown cow but you can use a white one. One last tip, if you see a big curved arrow overhead that means you need to throw the person(s) in that specific building. I have a guide here.

Spooky Town
Purchase Sid's Haunted House 

Just buy the item from the store for $5000 when it becomes available.

Cuddly Town
Purchase Lotso's Enchanted Glen 

Just buy the item from the store for $5000 when it becomes available.

To Infinity...
Purchase Zurg's Spaceport 

Just buy the item from the store for $5000 when it becomes available.

Airborn Ranger
Hit 15 Paratrooper targets 

In order to unlock these missions you need to first purchase the paratroopers from the store for $1500. Now as you are walking around you'll see a couple of green circles with stars and downward facing arrows on various high places. That's where you initiate the mission. Pick up your army guy and throw him into the air, then use back and forward on the left stick to adjust the speed and aim for the highlighted target(s) on the ground. You can either land directly on it or press to drop and try to land that way. Each launch location has multiple targets so keep redoing them and landing at a different target each time. You need 15 landings for the trophy.

First Bronze
Earn a bronze medal in a vehicle challenge 

See "First Gold".

First Silver
Earn a silver medal in a vehicle challenge 

See "First Gold".

First Gold
Earn a gold medal in a vehicle challenge 

An easy way is to purchase Bullseye for $1000 in Woody’s Roundup, then while riding him you’ll find the glowing starting line for Ring Rally Race at the end of the main road in town (if you are at the “T” intersection and facing the clock tower, turn right). The race is a quick run through town and you should be able to get bronze and silver without too much effort (you might actually have to wait at the finish line for bronze). For gold you need to hold down for the entire race. On this race you need 1:30 to 1:01 for bronze, 1:00 to 0:41 for silver and 0:40 or less for gold. This will require a minimum of 3 races. You have to place in the appropriate time frame for each trophy, meaning you can't win gold and unlock the other 2. If you just can't get gold with Bullseye OR if you get the Winner's Circle gold star and still don't have it, put it off until you unlock the Dragon later. The dragon races are ridiculously easy and you will get it on the first race.

Photo Journalist
Complete all the Toy Camera missions (2) 

You get the Camera device while playing through the Toy Box missions. Once it is unlocked at the store, you can buy it for $1000 and then can select it in the list by pressing or to highlight it and press to select it. Missions are given by Wheezy (penguin) and a guy with a baseball hat in the new portion of town that is unlocked after destroying the dam during play. You ONLY need to complete the missions from Wheezy for this to unlock. I've got a guide here.

Secret Trophies
No swimming
Blow up the dam and expand your town 

The mission is given to you by Ham after you complete the "Mayoral Election" and "Build the Bank" missions. Just go through the gate that opened in town and work your way along the edge to the big pile of dynamite at the end and toss a ball at it.

Rescue Space Ranger
Save Mayor Hamm from the bandits 

The mission is given to you by a townsperson sometime after you complete the "Blow up the Dam" mission. Follow the compass to the bandit hideout and just throw a TNT barrel to destroy the 5 shacks. If you are having problems finding the entrance, from Slinky Dog's Farm facing the Al's Toy Store Chicken Suit Machine, you'll see the stunt track entrance (checkered flag sign) just left of that is a wooden walkway. Follow it all the way around (don't fall), wall jump in the gap, ride the mine cart rail, climb the wall and the bandit gate is on the right.

Give Me My Gold Back
Defeat Mayor Hamm in the Woody's Roundup boss battle 

The mission is initiated after you complete the "Marble Sculptor" mission. If you are having trouble here's how to finish it, first go grab a TNT barrel from the corner of town near the bridge that leads to Zurg's Spaceport. Now move in and watch for the pig ship to open its belly. As soon as it does, toss your barrel into the suction tornado. You have to be quick otherwise it does not get sucked all the way inside. Three barrels and it is mission complete.
