    Again, I don't get the hate for this - the 'robot' mode looks spot-on, and the vehicle mode makes more sense than a car. Plus, if he transform into, say, Jazz's alt mode or similar, people would only complain that he doesn't transform into his ship!

    This is also the first Disney Label TF I can see Hasbro releasing, and in time for Toy Story 3 to hit cinemas too.

    I dunno, but it's heading to an awesome place.

    That pic is much better then the last one. The robot mode looks much better. Spot-on, as Ominus said, and the Headmaster gimmick is really surprising. From, the looks of it, it'll most likely be a shellformer, but it's a good-looking shellformer.

    I have to agree here. As far as Disney label goes, this has got to be the coolest and most well-made.

    The headmaster is just his head upside down. And on the reverse side, of course.

    See, it's nice, but I just really don't get the point of it. There is no appeal to this beyond it being Buzz and his ship; the charm of the Disney Label figures is that it's Disney characters as known Transformers. This is just a random piece of Toy Story merchandising, one that would normally run for up to 20 bucks but will now cost 50 because it's a 'specialty' piece. It just seems so...Weird.

    And kind of a missed oppertunity. Imagine if this was a Buzz Cosmos, now that could have been awesome. Or if he transformed into the Ark! Now that would have been hilarious.

    Something I didn't understand about the disney label Mickimus Prime...it was the size of a scout class. I never really paid attention to how big it was gonna be, then I saw it at a vendor table. I mean, come on, at least a voyager class would of made sense.

    I think this makes a ton of sense. The ship is Buzz's signature vehicle. Micky Mouse and Donald Duck don't have signature vehicles, so they were given TF vehicles that fit their roles.

    He's a Headmaster!? This makes me want it even more, though I really don't want to shell out $50 for a scout sized toy.

    To be honest, Donald has his 313. And I suppose that it depends on personal taste. To me, though, this just seems not quirky enough to be a Disney Label Transformer. It feels more like a generic transforming figure of Buzz. :(
