If you've been following my blog for a while, then you probably know I've been an avid fan and collector of the Mattel Toy Story "Buddy Pack" figures since they debuted in 2010 (check out my full write-up on the collection HERE). While I got almost every single one back in the day, there were a few that I just never got for one reason or another.
This fun "Galaxy Rescue" Target exclusive 5-Pack (from 2010) was one of the sets that slipped past me. Though I have Zurg, Grapnel Buzz Lightyear and the two Zurg robots already, it was the Rex with gaming helmet that I was missing (which is only available in this set). So yah, I tracked this down on eBay recently basically just for him! It's my completest mentality, what can I say (plus I figured it wouldn't hurt to have another Zurg and a couple of his evil bots for scene building).
Check them out in more detail below!
Note: Mattel recently released "Gaming Rex" and "Grapnel Buzz" as standard size figures as well (check it my post HERE).
Zurg's robots even have rolling wheels underneath. Nice touch!
I wish this line would continue on. There have been scattered new releases and re-releases over the past year or so, but I would love to see new characters in full force. These have been some of my favorite things to collect for their quality and uniquely stylized look!
Who would you like to see made that hasn't been already? Shout it out in the comments below.
