I bought one of these off of Amazon early in November. Now honestly, the first one I bought, the head didn't work so I sent it back. The replacement has a fully functioning head, so I'm happy now.
I bought this because Buzz Lightyear was my all time favourite movie character, and when I was younger, my favourite toy. As we all know, however, the original Buzz Lightyears were somewhat lacking compared to what we saw in the movie. This one is the toy I always wanted my old one to be, so I had to have one. I am not a toy nut or collector. This is the only toy I have bought in goodness knows how long. It is immense fun, though, and the attention to detail is great. And so is the box. I don't see how it could be educational, but then I left school last year and am therefore perhaps a little old to be using a toy as a learning tool. That said, I could not be more pleased with it.
