At this point, we’re getting into the ‘collectible’ Buzz Lightyears. These are the high-end Buzz figures with great features, and a bigger price. Yes, he’s amazingly playable. Lots of fun. But, if your child is still at that… destructive… age (you know we all were at one point or another!) it would be better to get a less expensive model.
That said, this is another awesome Buzz. Like the Disney Advanced Talking Buzz Lightyear Action Figure — 12” I talked about before, this one’s got a ton of great features. To recap, he’s got the authentic Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) voice. Speaks 15 different phrases from different Toy Story movies. His wings swivel out and up. Same as in the movies! Arm laser, helmet opens at the click of a button, he’s well-articulated (actually a bit better so than most, since he’s a higher quality Buzz than average). He’s lighted, including alternating wingtip lights, laser, and rocket housing lights. He comes with Karate chop action (a button on his jetpack).
Oh yes, he’s got motion sensors to tell him when he’s horizontal or vertical, and he responds to sounds. As much as I love him, don’t expect too much from the sound response. I have one with the Talk Back mode, and it seems to respond more to tone of voice than actual words. You also have to speak quite loudly to get him to react.
Still, this is a phenomenal toy. Bear in mind, this is the Disney/Pixar version (still legitimate, just a different one) and not the Thinkway one. This is one of the reasons I started writing this site. There are so many Buzz figures out there, and in some cases the difference is so minute you can hardly tell them apart. In this particular case, the main difference is the number of phrases. This one offers 15 phrases, the Thinkway version offers 65 phrases. That’s the only real way I know to tell them apart, at least when you’re trying to order one online.
Pixar, Thinkway… I prefer the Thinkway model, both for the added feature, and the quality of build. But I wouldn’t kick this one out… I’d be proud to have this Buzz included in my collection!
