This 12″ Toy Story Karate Action Buzz Lightyear is more ‘lightweight’ than “Lightyear”. If you’re considering this piece, pay close attention to the details. Not only what the product specs say, but what they DON’T say. He’s 12″ tall. Has Karate Action. His head swivels to the side and back when he chops. Helmet opens and closes, and he’s reasonably articulated. His big attraction is that he’s sized to ride the Freewheeling RC Car.
That’s it. He’s good for what he is, nice sculpt, decent paint, karate action works fine. But notice what’s missing? No voice. No Wings. No buttons to push (other than the karate one). No laser on his arm. (Not one that makes light and sounds, anyway.) I mentioned he’s reasonably articulated… but only just. His knees aren’t jointed, so he’s not as well articulated as most 12″ Buzz Lightyear figures.
In all honesty and fairness to this figure, the product description is very clear as to what you get. It never claims anything else. But really, most of those other features are so… normal… that it’s natural to assume a full-sized Buzz will have all the usual features. Especially at the current price, which is $25.99 as I write this. There are plenty of other Buzzes, with and without karate action, that offer better features but are still in that price class. He could be a lot better, or should be priced a lot lower.
Final Thoughts? If you get him at a really low price, he might be worth it. Personally, I don’t think so. Not unless you’re specifically looking for a Buzz Lightyear designed to ride Freewheeling RC.
