Toy Story: Buzz Lightyear Minifigure (Disney LEGO Blind Bags Series 1)

Clear back in late April/early May of this year, LEGO debuted series one of their Disney blind bag minifigures collection— an assortment of 18 classic Disney/Pixar characters to collect and trade! If you're not familiar with it, here's who's included in the line (more official info HERE):
  • Mickey Mouse 
  • Minnie Mouse 
  • Donald Duck
  • Daisy Duck
  • Alice
  • Cheshire Cat 
  • Peter Pan
  • Captain Hook 
  • Maleficent 
  • Ariel
  • Ursula 
  • Genie
  • Aladdin 
  • Stitch
  • Mr. Incredible 
  • Syndrome 
  • Buzz Lightyear 
  • Pizza Planet Alien
Of course I was just interested in getting the four Pixar characters. I was able to snag Mr. Incredible and Syndome a while back (check out my full post on them HERE) and then, just yesterday, I finally picked up a Buzz Lightyear.

Inside the bag you'll find a series one checklist, seven minifigure pieces and a display stand brick. Check out Buzz all assembled and ready for action below!

I honestly had totally forgotten about getting this figure, hence the seven month gap in between this one and my original post. Yesterday while I was working at the Disney Store however, I was reminded when we got a brand new case of this series in stock. A fellow castmember of mine, Mike (a big thanks to him), is brilliant at deciphering who's in each bag and I was able to enlist his help. He felt several bags and then assured me that this was the one. When my shift finished, I was eager to make the purchase to see if he was right (never doubted you for a second, Mike). I ripped it right open and, well, needless to say here he is! Fantastic.

The look of this figure is quite a bit different than the Buzz Lightyear minifigure released in the original 2010 Toy Story LEGO sets (seen HERE). That made this one a must have for me! I really like the look of this Buzz, perhaps even more than the first design. And again, I love how each minifigure in this series feels like a collector's piece with the included black display stand.

You can find these at most major toy retailers (I've seen them at Toys R Us, Walmart, Target, etc.), as well as the LEGO store (online HERE), Disney Parks and the Disney Store. Retail is $3.99.

Best of luck on the hunt and have a blast!
