A Buzz Lightyear origin film is on the way as the new Disney and Pixar film Lightyear is set to hit theaters on June 17, 2022. This long-awaited film will give Toy Story fans the back story to the iconic Space Ranger that captivated the screen in 1995. The way it was described is that this is the film that Andy watched that began the popularity and rise of Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story films. It looks like Lightyear is going to have it all with the classic white and green suit, Star Commander, and even Zurg! No one knows what adventures await us, but Mattel is giving fans a look at some of their upcoming toys and collectibles for the space adventure.
There are some nice heavy-hitting collectibles in this set of reveals with the Hyperspeed Series, the Blast and Battle XL ship, a Companion Sox Plush, and of course, the Jetpack Liftoff Buzz Lightyear Figure. All of these sweet toys are unique, giving Toy Story fans some new realistic depiction of the Space Ranger. The collectible ships are probably my favorite new release, along with that fantastic Jetpack Liftoff Buzz Lightyear. Unlike previous 12" Buzz figures this one features a new realistic design, a real vapor trail, a new jetpack model, and a sensor that actives lights and sounds when he is air. All of Mattel's new line-up of Lightyear figures and toys are expected to release in Fall 2022. Be sure to check out all of the other new releases coming soon from Mattel here and check out all of the new reveals below. To Infinity and Beyond!
