In the 15 years since the launch of Toy Story, in excess of one million of the 12” Buzz Lightyear Action Figures have been sold in the UK.

To celebrate, Disney Store last night unveiled a commemorative plaque at its Oxford Street Store. The plaque will be on permanent display in the Store for all shoppers to see.

Teresa Tideman, joint managing director, Disney Store Europe, commented: “Buzz Lightyear captured the nation’s hearts when he first appeared 15 years ago and his popularity has continued to grow.

"This year we expect that the Buzz Lightyear action figure will once again be sitting eagerly under thousands of Christmas trees in the UK.”

The exclusive Disney Store 12” Buzz Lightyear Action Figure, priced at just £20, has 28 phrases including many from Toy Story 3, a laser, possible arms and legs, extendable wings and a retractable helmet.
