When I saw this LEGO on the shop I couldn’t believe my eyes, a Buzz Lightyear done with LEGO bricks!. First thing that I thought is that LEGO cheated and created a few new special bricks so the toy looked real but a closer inspection let me realize that no, that I was wrong, this is a real LEGO figure made with real LEGO bricks…
Do you believe me if I tell you I paid just €10 for it? A real bargain.
Let’s review it.

This model features several bricks I haven’t seen before specially the one that does the waist of Buzz Lightyear. Overall the building experience is interesting. It isn’t a complex model and can be built in 30-45 minutes.
I have some problems attaching the arms and the legs because the ball joint was quite hard but nothing beyond that.
Once built I have to say that it looks really impressive and real. I have been greatly surprised.
This set was a real bargain but if you think the original price was almost three time of what I pay for it, I would score it a value for money of three stars.
