A look at the newly released, Legacy of Revoltech Buzz Lightyear. Check out the Toy Photography section for some more advanced shots. Initial thoughts - He’’s a good figure but just isn’t quite the same quality as others in Revoltech’s Disney line. I’ll get into that in more detail below. ARTICULATION - As you would expect from a Revoltech Figure. Highly articulate, shoulder joints, elbow joints, wrist rotation and wrist joints, finger and thumb joints, hip joints, upper thigh rotation, knee joints, ankle joints, waist joint, neck rotation and neck joint, canopy opens and closes also. He also features movable eyes. PAINT APPLICATION - I mention this specifically due to a couple QC issues with mine where the paint had either been slightly misapplied or slightly chipped particularly on the green chest panel. However, the colours are vibrant and true to the original design. They capture the light beautifully as well. ACCESSORIES - These are good but again compared to others in the line there are not as many as you would expect. There are two head sculpts as you will see. A smiling Buzz and a more intense smirk. Both feature the trademark eye movement but due to a design flaw wherein the inner part of the head sculpt is too narrow, meaning the eye joint cannot fit inside the head if moved too far in one direction! However you can still definitely change the direction of sight which adds great variation particularly for photography and is a reason I really enjoy these figures. The little details really bring them to life. There are attachable wings which are well detailed and a small closed wing panel to replace them when not in use. There are also three green army men, a Buzz Lightyear name plate and a clear plastic display stand. A removal arm is also included as a feature to replicate the classic scene from Toy Story but the way it is executed just looks like a joint you could remove anyway... OVERALL - He is a good figure, not great. And I think compared to the high quality Revoltech have produced with Woody, Judy Hopps and Winnie the Pooh, I just expected a bit more. He is not a terrible expensive figure though and the articulation and details do allow for terrific variety of posing and photography and all in all, he is a fine addition to the Revoltech Disney line. Just sadly not quite up there with the best. FINAL SCORE - 6/10
