This is a quick preview of the new 2010 LEGO set from Toy Story, 7592 Construct-a-Buzz. It comes with 205 pieces (and few are extra) and is a large-scale version of Buzz Lightyear, along with an Alien minifig (with shortened/half-height legs).
In the words of my wife, it’s “Rockin”. It’s a very neat set. It’s just under 8 inches (21cm) tall and has some really unique parts. There were surprisingly few stickers – quite a few of the parts you see with designs on them are printed. Just about everything pivots various ways, although the elbows are locked. The visor/helmet is a really neat piece that I can imagine will be used in MOCs for interesting spaceship designs (or domes for some kind of micro/mini-scale landscapes). It’s got a couple of large purple plates for wings, and I believe you can’t get them in this color in any other set.
I’ll get the full review published later today, complete with photos of the construction, since it’s pretty unique.
