Iron Lightyear Takes to the Skies in this Awesome Figure Customization

Toy customization can be a tricky thing. When it goes wrong, you get something off the rails like “Surf-Blast Spider-Man” or “Skydiving and Marathon Running Batman” that you would probably see in the aisle of Target. When it goes right, you get a creation like the one Sam Kwok made. He took a Hot Toys 1/6 scale Iron Man Mark 39 figure and turned it into the ultimate Buzz Lightyear. Let’s just say the ending of Toy Story 3 would have been a little different if Andy had THIS Buzz in his collection.

What’s cool with this figure is that depending on who you are imagining inside the suit, you get two distinctly different possibilities.

Iron Buzz 3

On the one hand, you have a Tony Stark that just wants to goof around. His guilty pleasure is Pixar movies so he decides, “Meh, what the heck.” Next thing you know, Captain America‘s next upgrade includes a cowboy hat (this version takes place BEFORE Civil War).

Iron Buzz 4

On the other hand, you have the dark and gritty reboot of Buzz Lightyear. He’s a no-nonsense space cop that that’s been on the job for 25 years. After retiring to his space houseboat, he’s pulled back in after the space-drug lord Zurg has finally reappeared. Buzz is the only one who can stop him.

Iron Buzz 6

If either one of those scenarios occurred, Disney and Marvel would have my money because that’s something I would need to see to believe.

You can check out more of Sam’s creations on his Facebook page here.

So what do you think? Has the Disney/Marvel mashup been taken to the next level? What other combinations would you like to see? Which of the above versions should be made a reality? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
