Remember that combining Toy Story robot figure that turned Woody and pals into a giant mecha? Well, not only is there a new one based on Buzz Lightyear—but the two mechs combine into one gigantic, unholy, completely awesome mess of Toy Story robot madness.
Master toy customizer Sam Kwok has turned Hot Toys’ sixth-scale Starboost Iron Man XXXIX figure into what Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear would almost certainly look like in real life. If Tony Stark ever started doing children’s birthday parties, this is definitely the armor he should wear.
Check out these pictures of NASA's brand new prototype Z-1 spacesuits — do they remind you of anything? As Slashfilm points out, there's a striking resemblance to Buzz Lightyear — almost as if someone at NASA was a Toy Story fan.
Balloon artist Jeff Wright has created an amazing Buzz Lightyear costume out of twisting balloons. But one overly rough playtime with Andy, and this Buzz might end up completely naked.
One of the best things about becoming a parent is getting to dress your kids up as chest-bursting, brain-devouring zombies (or, provided you've raised them as good little Browncoats and Whovians, getting to see them choose an awesome costume all on their own).
From May 2008 through September 2009, a Buzz Lightyear toy spent 468 days in orbit around the Earth. But the space ranger didn't go into his mission cold; he got some training from a fellow who knows a thing or two about life in space: second man on the moon (and Lightyear's namesake) Buzz Aldrin.
Somewhere, someone knows how this Buzz Lightyear action figure wound up in an anus. It could be a long story. It could be a short story. Maybe there's no real story at all. But there is this x-ray.
To all the scantily clad cosplayers of the world, we love you — but this is how you make a costume for the ages. We dare someone to top this amazing Toy Story Buzz Lightyear cosplay.
The iconic tube map of London's Underground network has been given a Tron-over by DeviantArt user IamClu, turning it into "The Grid." Buzz Lightyear and a double-decker bus have also been Tronified, below.
A group of artists had a speed-painting contest based on the notion of Pixar characters wielding implements of warfare. Witness a Mad Max-style Wall-E, a space wizard Buzz Lightyear, and Up with a side of Joust.
It's the Sophie's Choice of Toy Story. Andy must decide which toys lives, and which toys will die the horrible toy death of storage, trash or good will, and in this first clip he decides quickly.
How did I miss this? The Toy Story action figure returned on the space shuttle Discovery last Friday, after first launching aboard STS-124 on May 31st 2008. Here's a video of his time on the International Space Station:
There's some cool stuff to this toy, to be sure. It has original Tim Allen voice work, which is nice, and it's obviously of solid construction. But it seems like its uses are pretty limited. Once your kid has said the dozen voice commands and has heard the quips and seen the motions, there's not a lot to keep them…
Buzz Lightyear is now part of the International Space Station crew, after astronauts from mission STS-124 boarded the orbital outpost yesterday at 3:36PM EDT—bringing in the 12-inch to guard us against Emperor Zurg, who has been secretly building a weapon with the destructive capacity to annihilate an entire planet.…
