The Toy Story Action Figure, Buzz Lightyear was subject to mass sales in the Christmas after the film's release, mainly in the United States and United Kingdom. It was the number 1 toy sold in the UK and has remained a sought-after collectible since. In 1995, Thinkway didn't think that Toy Story would be that popular hence didn't make enough dolls to meet demand, as referenced in Toy Story 2. Buzz wears a high-tech space suit, similar to those of modern-day astronauts though more streamlined and iconic.
The suit chest features a control panel. On the left hand side of the suit, a large red button activates the suit's flight system. When activated, the wings on the suit's backpack will unfold, and the boosters at the bottom of the pack will ignite, allowing the wearer to fly. The sides of the wings carry lights that blink red and green, indicating port and starboard sides, in order to prevent any in-air collisions. Buzz Lightyear can be seen as meet-and-greet characters in the various Disneyland theme parks around the world. He also has a cameo appearance in Bedtime Stories as part of the audience (hence reasoning why he is Bugsy).
