Turbo Karate Chop? I’m in… this Buzz has been ‘wish listed’! He looks very nice, and comes in updated packaging compared to the original karate chop buzz. The hype is that these Mega Action 6″ tall figures are supposed to move like and do what the toys in the movies could do. I’m all for that. Toy Story 1 Buzz definitely had the martial arts move, even if Woody had to make him use it. The more verisimilitude these toys have, the better the kids (and me!) enjoy it.
The sculpt looks good, and of course it’s a larger figure than the other karate Buzz. Unfortunately, just like the other one, this toy cannot move his knees. You don’t get full articulation. For a static display collector like me, that’s not really a problem. But still, I can’t see any technical reason the knees couldn’t move. Might have been a cost factor in production. Regardless, this is a minor quibble. I’m looking forward to the day he does his Bruce Lee act in my display shelves!
