With the release of Lightyear this June, Bandai Spirits has some amazing looking toys on the way to coincide with the release of the film.
Firstly, we have a new S.H.Figuarts toy of Buzz Lightyear (shown above) released this June for 8,800 yen, or around $69. This looks to be a fully articulated figure with multiple accessories and some pristine detailing.
Secondly, we have the Chogokin XL-15 Space Ship (shown below) released this July for 14,300 yen, or around $112. The Chogokin branding means this will be a weighty diecast toy, with retractable landing gear and an accessible cockpit. Not to mention to scale figures of both Buzz and Zurg.
On the latter space ship toy, this seems to be the second space ship we have seen from the trailers, as the opening ship in the teaser trailer is quite a bit different (though we see the updated ship later on in the same trailer).
In any case, both toys look amazing and what with Bandai Spirits handling these, they will no doubt be high-quality pieces as well.
Regardless, I can’t wait to go and see Lightyear and I will be definitely be picking up these toys once they are out.
