Buzz Lightyear (Toys R Us Exclusive)

Out of all the SDCC09 toys, the one I hoped would find its way into retail shelves was the 3.75" Buzz Lightyear. So when I spotted them at Toys R' Us as a retailer exclusive I snatched one up. Incdientally, the packaging is a bitch to get them out of.



I was very pleased by the articulation. The hips don't move much, but the elbows and knees are full ball-joints. Like 360 degree rotation witha 90 degree bend. You can make his knees bend backwards is what I'm saying, so doing the teapot pose is very simple.



But the reason I wanted a Buzz Lightyear in the 3.75" scale (as opposed to the larger scales available everywhere for about the same cost) is that I like it when toys are of similar scales. Because in my head, Buzz Lightyear just joined GI Joe.

  1. I almost picked up Rocky Gibraltar or whatever that wrestler figure's name is - man he's cool in this scale, and it's such a pleasure to see honest-to-God action figures of these movie characters which are action figures!
