This is earth shattering. I need to tell Raggy Ann and Andy, and Betty Boop, and Felix the Cat.
Did you use a time machine to discover this startling revelation?

Buzz is not the merchandisable one.
WOW! All 20 Phrases from the NEW Robot Companion Sox | New Lightyear Toys
Youtube B5FZhlgo0b0


Spoilers!

If, within the Toy Story universe, Lightyear is the movie that prompted Andy to desperately want a Buzz toy, how come a Sox action figure - arguably the most obvious choice - is nowhere to be seen in the four movies of the franchise?

Lightyear director Angus MacLane had a suitably meta, adorably nerdy response to this burning question.

"Andy's mom could not get it," he said during a press conference with producer Galyn Susman and composer Michael Giacchino.  "It was sold out everywhere."

He then added: "That's an expensive toy," saying: "It would have been like Worlds of Wonder or Tiger Electronic. It would've been like kind of a fancy, like a $70 toy."

Sometimes I forget about what the middle class actually looked like in the 90s. I was lucky enough to get 2 power rangers and one Zord my entire kiddy life. 3 of the ninja turtles.

I forget that some parents were willing to dump $200 on whole sets of toys in the 90s. I think that $200 is the equivalent of $600 or so, since more adults collect this stuff. I only ever got one bionicle before I aged out of it, and my mom didn't get why a lego set cost $40.

Andy looked more like a divorced mom family, not a Kevin McCallister Home Alone mansion. Jebus people.

It's like whoever designed that toy 'cat' didn't see the movie. The movie 'cat's' pink nose is right up against the face color on top of the muzzle. This toy has the (wrong shade of pink) nose in the middle of the muzzle.

...Was just thinking that given Lightyear's poor showing at the box office, it's a pity KayBee Toys isn't around any more.  That's where unsold and unpopular toys went to die - imagine the Island of Misfit Toys, but they all had to stand in the window and be ignored.

Haha! I had a friend (and his little brother) that had the M.A.S.K base and all of the cars, Castle Greyskull and a bunch of He-men figures and I thought he was RICH. I couldn't believe it.

Many moons later, my parents dragged me to one of their friends house to meet their son "he likes video games too, you should meet him". I totally didn't want to go but when I did I saw he had a NeoGeo (and a few games!) as well as the NeoGeo Express, I thought his family MUST BE rich. Those games were like $300 each. The Express cost $500 by itself and it was just SITTING ON THE FLOOR OF HIS CLOSET. He has the TV tuner, too. I couldn't believe it. I spazzed out so we never became friends lol.

I miss how you could get so much stuff on clearance back in the day. Literal Pennie's on the dollar. Nowadays there are too many internet middle men doing arbitrage for anything to ever be more than 40% off

I think I spot an easter egg from 2001: A Space Odyssey, in the flip-up gauntlet cover on the Buzz figure: can't make out the words, but the layout and font look suspiciously like the zero-g toilet instructions  from 2001.

According to the handful of reviews I've read, that's completely accurate. Buzz causes all the problems, and his big lesson is learning to step out of the way and let others fix things. He's pretty much the worst.
