In case you are in need of a few inexpensive Spacefighters, or orbital/sub-orbital strike bombers to populate your Spaceport, the new Buzz Lightyear toys are now available for sale at Walmart and Target.

There are four different models, and they come with a pilot figure too.

$12 USD each.

Also, there's a purple alien spaceship too, for your gaming pleasure. I'm not as sold on it as some of the aspects of the design are a bit weird (the circular surface detailing on the wings/sides), but it is supposed to be an alien design, so there is that to consider.

I suspect it might look better with a repaint to a more reasonable/neutral/subdued color. Sorry, can't recall the price on it for sure, but think it is a bit more than the fighters – $24 USD seems to ring a bell for me, so double that of the human fighters.

There's also a Drop-pod two-pack (purple pods – Barney the dinosaur would be pleased) – one battle scarred and one not, and with two, large, yellow robots/mechs include in them also, so they work out to be $6 USD each per pod, with a free passengers for them. They can be left closed, or opened up – a three-petal design for the models.

Also, there's at least one fighter that's also been produced in 6mm – 10mm/12mm scale too, in case you are a multi-scale gamer.

Thanks for the head's up.

The toy aisle is a great place for 15mm SciFi!

Those drop pods are awesome.

My best find so far is the Firefly Yahtzee game. The ship is a dice cup that makes a perfect 15mm space ship:

Mark, that's a great find. If I ever get the Splintered Light minis, I might grab one.

Yea, that Firefly is cool, and might work for 15mm, but realistically, it's about 10mm scale instead, so should be much larger for 15mm.

Still, I suppose you can just ignore that, or use it as a visual backdrop.

The 15mm Firefly Shuttle is superb too – frequently sold as a Christmas ornament.

I see a trip to Walmart in my future. Thanks.

CVS even has these, though they're $15 USD there instead of $12 USD at Walmart and Target.

Buzz's fighter was already on special for 25AUD at Big W yesterday. The alien fighter wasn't much more.

Mad Mecha Guy21 Jun 2022 1:29 p.m. PST

with how the film has bombed, the toys might be on sale soon….

chironex01 Jul 2022 2:17 a.m. PST

Some are already.

chironex09 Jul 2022 5:57 a.m. PST

15AUD at Big W for the Hyperspeeds, I just got one and its pilot figure is basically 31-32mm, only (perhaps ironically?) better proportioned so it may look out of place amongst your 32mm figs. Not sure if I really want to try to make it into 15mm now, but it is rather small for a 28mm fighter, let alone a trans-atmospheric one. Although that is in-character for non-anime space operas.

chironex14 Jul 2022 4:04 a.m. PST

And now the special has ended. 22AUD. ea.

found some of the fighters at Aldi (10) and the purple zorg fighter at B&M (16.99). not found the larger zorg ship yet.

T\he zorg fighter after a bit of mooding, would make a good gunship or lander.

This buzz lightyear toy is a great price, but is 6" long and the figure is 1.5" tall, so perhaps better for 28mm figures.

Didn't see anything that would fit 15mm – did I miss something?

McWong7302 Jan 2023 2:41 p.m. PST

No that's what everyone was talking about. The figure and the vehicle are out of scale.

Mad Mecha Guy15 Jan 2023 12:43 a.m. PST

For the UK gamers, the smaller Armadillo model is in at 'the entertainer' store, at £20.00 GBP at present but if like the other will drop in price.
