Lightyear 6" - ALISHA HAWTHORNE!

Lightyear - Alpha Class 6" Series - Commander Alisha Hawthorne - Mattel 2022

Lightyear was an interesting movie. Of all Toy Story characters that I would want to see an entire animated universe developed for, I never would have guessed that Buzz Lightyear would be the one to see. Back in 2000 he had an animated series called Buzz Lightyear of Star Command that I understand had a decent following (I reviewed the Mira Nova Happy Meal toy from that show). So I can understand the precedent for producing a full-fledged theatrical movie based off the character. My favorite part of the movie was the Grandmother/Granddaughter roles of Alisa Hawthorne (Uzo Aduba) and Izzy Hawthorne (Keke Palmer). The trailers already spoiler this aspect, but Buzz spends time in a world where time proceeds differently and returns to find his world has moved on. In place of his trusty partner, Alisha, is her feisty granddaughter, Izzy. Both really great characters that each had tons of product made. I'll be reviewing seven in the next seven days. Starting with Alisha in her Commander uniform.

The Alpha Class line is the premium product from Mattel. 
The figures measure about 6", have tons of articulation, and lots of accessories and removable costume details.

The two-pack comes with a variety of accessories that can be held by either Alisha or Buzz.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Alisha with her packmate Buzz Lightyear.

And here is Alisha with the Alpha Class figure of her Granddaughter, Izzy.

And here are all the Alisha Hawthorne figures I own together. From Left to Right: Hyperspeed, Imaginext, 5" Series, 6" Alpha Class, and 12" Series.

  1. It is just SO wrong that this suited look of hers wasn't made in the 5" scale. It's so very, very annoying if you think about it... ...You have a movie, a minimal cast of characters, but you also CAN'T buy all the characters in the same scale? Some are ONLY in certain scales? The hell?
