This is a list of characters from the Toy Story trilogy which consists of the animated films Toy Story, Toy Story 2, and Toy Story 3.
Rex is a large, green, plastic Tyrannosaurus rex who suffers from anxiety, an inferiority complex ("I just don't think I could take that kind of rejection!"), and the concern that he is not scary enough. Rex's worst fear (after Sid) is that Andy will get another, scarier dinosaur, but feels better after Buzz gives him a few pointers on how to roar more effectively. He is voiced by Wallace Shawn and by Earl Boen in the Toy Story 2 video game.
In Toy Story, he states that he was manufactured by a subsidiary of Mattel (coincidentally, real-life Rex toys used to be made by Hasbro, but as of 2009 are indeed made by Mattel). In the same film, he seems to know that Woody knocked Buzz out the window by accident, yet he sides against him out of pressure for the other toys. Feeling guilty, he is unhappy about Woody's disappearance and later vomits when he sees Buzz's broken arm. Later, after Rex realizes that Woody is innocent, Rex states "Great, now I have guilt!"
The beginning of Toy Story 2, he is shown playing the "Buzz Lightyear: Attack on Zurg" video game, which terminates with Buzz being destroyed by Emperor Zurg, much to Rex's frustration. Nevertheless, thinking his video game experiences have prepared him for real combat, Rex accompanies Buzz, Potato Head, Hamm, and Slinky on their mission to rescue Woody after he is stolen by Al McWhiggin of Al's Toy Barn. When the toys enter Al's Toy Barn, Rex excitedly finds a "Buzz Lightyear" video game strategy guide, only to lose it soon after. In spite of that he is able to give Buzz (the toys take a "Bonus Belt" Buzz instead) pointers from information he has acquired from the manual. At one point, he parodies a scene from Jurassic Park by chasing after the car that the toys drive in Al's Toy Barn, in which Mr. Potato Head spots his reflection in a rear view mirror. Rex is considered to be the heaviest of Andy's toys when he loses his grip on the new Buzz's utility line and pushes the toys to the bottom, causing the new Buzz's strength to give out. Later, Buzz #2 and the toys use Rex as a battering ram to break into Al's apartment. When the toys go down the elevator after Al leaves the room with Woody and the Roundup gang, he witnesses the duel between Buzz #2 and an Emperor Zurg action figure. When Zurg is about to finish off Buzz #2, he turns away, not bearing to look anymore, but his tail knocks Zurg down the elevator shaft, making him feel overjoyed about finally defeating Zurg, but this time, for real.
