Funko Hikari Vinyl Toy Story Original Buzz Lightyear Vinyl FigureI like Toy Story because, well, I'm toy people. You've met comic book guys, I'm toy people - so Pixar's first movie begat Original Buzz Lightyear and since it has probably been a solid decade since I paid for a Buzz Lightyear toy, I got one.

It's a lot more detailed than I would have guessed, but it follows the Hikari template - so don't expect too many surprises.

Funko Hikari Vinyl Toy Story Original Buzz Lightyear Vinyl FigureGenerally these figures smooth out some of the details - not always, but sometimes. Here, we have a number of sculpted buttons, an embossed "SR" Space Rangers patch on his shoulders, and panels galore. The white parts of the body are an almost (but not) reflective silver that looks fabulous in a light room and still fabulous but different in a dark one. The paint job is, to say the least, impressive. The head has a fleshy color that looks a lot like the movie, giving the figure's "skin" the same opacity you saw in the movie - there's a big difference between a flesh plastic and flesh painted toy head, and they nailed it. The face is expressive and the body is, well, it's appropriately deformed. Small wings barely pop out of his backpack with red and silver and purple stripes, plus green rocket-like bits on the sides. The green seems to be fading into a slight worn area in spots, giving it a really stellar look depending on where and when you see it. The toy has a lot of personality that changes up depending on the room he's in at the time, so that makes this more than a little exciting.

Funko Hikari Vinyl Toy Story Original Buzz Lightyear Vinyl Figure

At nearly 8-inches tall this is a good - if not cheap - figure. The neck and arm rotate nicely and the figure's exaggerated style and shiny body really play up the whole "this was inspired by a toy" thing. I like this because it's visually more exciting than a mini-bust or maquette would be, but it's also kind of goofy. It's shiny and colorful and inviting. The silver almost looks like unpainted metal - when I see it on my desk, I almost expect it to feel heavier than it actually is. I'm impressed. If you can get behind the idea of paying a lot for a collectible figure, I think you're going to like the Buzz sculpt - and probably love this particular colorway, too. The figure sold out on the first day from Funko, and the price dropped on Amazon pretty fast so you may be able to get yourself a deal. Anything under $50 would be a discount. Get it if the idea delights you, because this is a pretty nice figure.
