When Toy Story came to theaters, I didn’t get to see it for at least a month, but when I did I fell in love. I think I saw it 3 times in the theater in rapid succession afterwards and then picked it up on home video. The following year I was gifted my first Toy Story toy, a glittering Intergalactic Buzz Lightyear. He immediately took a place of honor on a shelf with most of my other prized toys, but he would not last long.
About a month after getting him I came home to find Buzz had fallen off the floor and broke into a dozen pieces. I am not sure how it happened. None of the other toys were moved or disturbed. I can only assume that the Evil Emperor Zerg had a hand in poor Buzz’s demise and I have been plotting my revenge ever since.
