You can pre-order Robosen’s Buzz Lightyear right now directly from the official website, but there’s a catch: you have to decide between the standard Space Ranger Alpha and limited edition Infinity Pack versions. Both options are also currently sporting Early Bird pricing, with the Space Ranger Alpha set at $649 and the Infinity Pack at $749. After November 12, 2022, those prices will jump up to their regular MSRPs of $799 and $999, respectively. No matter which one you choose, you’ll need to make a $99 deposit, though.
Tempting as it may be to go with the Space Ranger Alpha release due to the $100 to $200 savings, it’s important to note that this is a bare-bones Buzz. This standard release will net you the robot, stand, charger, Sox, an alternate interchangeable face, and one pair of alternate pointing hands. It’s enough to mess around with and there’s no difference in available actions or commands between versions, but there are going to be a lot of potential play options that you’ll be missing out on.
The Infinity Pack includes everything that comes with Space Ranger Alpha, plus several more accessories. The extra money will net you a dog tag with the robot’s serial number, three additional pairs of hands (saluting, blade holding, and blaster holding), the XL-15 Jetpack, a Laser Gauntlet, Space Ranger Blaster, and a Laser Blade DX with Blade Guard. Shipments are expected to start in the second quarter of 2023.
