Buzz Lightyear Action Figure Headed to Smithsonian

The Buzz Lightyear action figure that made a 15-month visit to the International Space Station between 2008 to 2009 will be put on display this summer at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.

Buzz was formally presented to the museum's directors yesterday by Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter and NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver. (Watch the full event here.)

Now can we get a major Disney and Pixar exhibit at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History? Put it right next to Archie Bunker's chair.

Wasn't the point of Toy Story 2 about how sad it would be to be stuck behind glass in a museum and never be played with again? They're even wearing gloves! Oh well.
