The original sculpture, from which the Buzz Lightyear statuettes were cast, was created by the very talented Jerome Ranft.

Update: There's more photos on Flickr here, here and here.
These pics, and their captions, indicate that each statuette weighs 14 pounds and the base bears the name of the recipient below the words "10 Years of Passion & Commitment".
Also, Pixarians who've been at the studio for 20 years plus got a Woody statuette.

Update: And now there's pictures of the awards party. At right, Andrew Stanton, John Lasseter, and others examining the statuettes.
A couple of bonus pics:
