Ronald "Ron" Tompkins (a.k.a. Ron the Manager) is the main antagonist of Toy Story of Terror!.
Toy Story of Terror!
Ron was the manager of the Sleep Well motel. He has an anxious personality, with a tendency to laugh nervously. He loves iguanas, as evidenced by his eBid username, iguanaluvr75, and the fact that he owns one. He steals toys and other objects from his customers using his pet iguana Mr. Jones to take them, and sells them on the Internet. When Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Mr. Pricklepants, Mr. Potato Head, Rex and Trixie were captured, he also had several other toys in his possession. Ron was thrilled to get high winning bids for Woody and Jessie, and proceeded in sending them. However they both escaped, and Jessie exposed his scheme, revealing to Bonnie her toys were in the manager's possession. When he was caught with Bonnie's toys, Bonnie's mother became furious at him and said that she should call the police.
During the credits, two policemen arrived, asking him if he was the manager. Panicking, Ron nervously assured he wasn't, saying he would go get the manager, and disappeared in his office. He ran out the back door and attempted to hijack the patrol car. However, in his panic he failed to drive away, instead crashing into his motel's sign, which fell on the car. He left the smashed patrol car and ran off, as an officer simply alerted the police that they "have a runner."
The team thought it important to to explain Ron's motivation to steal, but all scenes pertaining to this were finally cut. These would have revealed Ron was "raising money" to get a dream boat from "Bob's Boatyard", his neighbor. The sales of Woody and Jessie finally bring him enough money, and he immediately goes on to order the boat. In an alternate ending, it is towed to Ron precisely as he is arrested. Upon seeing this, the driver freaks out and drives backwards in a hurry, getting the boat to end accidentally smashed in pieces by a passing truck, to Ron's dismay. In another deleted scene, it is revealed that Al McWhiggin is the buyer of Woody and Jessie, ironically buying the same toys which he had acquired in Toy Story 2.
- Ron is similar to Al McWhiggin from Toy Story 2 for stealing toys and selling them.
- It was never revealed if Ron was arrested for stealing.
- Ron has a cup that reads: "Here Comes Trouble," hinting that he is the villain.
