Disney has released some early designs of the iconic Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear in celebration of the film’s 25th anniversary.
Fans are treated to initial sketches of what the space ranger could have looked like, some of which show how different the character was—from his face to his costume—when compared to his final legendary look.
One recurring design element was a glass dome for his space helmet, which looked a little cumbersome compared to the slick flip-up design in the final look.
The biggest departure from his present appearance saw the character as a 1950s-style sci-fi adventure serial with a spear-like weapon. The letters “LL” were printed on his chest, representing his original name, Lunar Larry.
Another design shows a more familiar look of Buzz with a square jaw and in headgear, with pop-out wings on his back.
Aside from the “evolution of his design,” Pixar historian Christine Freeman said that Buzz’s name had changed from “Tempus of Morph to Lunar Larry, to Buzz Lightyear.”
