body ST 3, arm ST 7 (-40), DX 10, IQ 10, HT 12/2 (-30), speed 8.238 (0), can glide (20)**, cannot float (-5)***. LC 4, model point total 106(*4).

* I don't know if you can actually do that, but I wasn't going to pay full cost when his body looks like a spacesuit, and I wasn't going to settle for sculpted when anyone can see his face is flesh-tone.
[Sounds good to me...]

** Sort of. Remember, "This isn't flying. This is falling with style."

*** Beth will probably point out, as she's done before on, that this is a crock -- "Cannot float" is really more a taboo trait (at worst, an incompetence) than anything that should be worth notable points. If you reduce it to an incompetence, Buzz' point total is 110; if you call it a taboo trait and eliminate the point bonus entirely, it's 111.
[I'll take it as an incompetence -- BTW, if he's "not waterproof," then he can have five points for it. *sparkle*crackle*pop*","don't ya know. Equiv to Vunerability to water, maybe?]

*4 I haven't worried about his programming cost(*5), nor have I counted the UB: High Technology (he's TL10, IOU is TL 7.875).

*5 But it includes a full personality simulation based on the movie (he remembers the movie as part of his past, but also knows that Buzz to be fictional) and adding a Sense of Duty to Minna Cockroach. It also includes Datalink and various skills appropriate to his post as a teacher, and some Karate skill (remember his karate-chop arm action).

This is my first (but hopefully not last) IOU character sheet, and also my first (and probably last for a while) attempt at robot building.

Token bit of legalese to save my hide: Buzz Lightyear is based upon the character of the same name appearing in the motion picture Toy Story, directed by John Lasseter. Buzz Lightyear (Space Ranger), the distinctive likeness thereof, and (presumably) all associated catchphrases are ©1995 Walt Disney Productions. (In the motion picture, this copyright information, in the short form "© Disney", can be seen stamped upon Lightyear's posterior.)

Character story: A once-ordinary Buzz Lightyear doll, upgraded by Wilhem (Vili) Torkener, lab assistant at CADET (the Silly IOU's Dept. of Cyberspace Advanced Development and Electroshock Therapy), to serve as Christmas present/babysitter to Minna Cockroach, the genetically engineered daughter of departmental chairthing Treacherous Cockroach.

[Vili is my character, and stats for him are theoretically forthcoming. Minna, her big brother Hybrid, and their father all belong to Scott (zagyg) Johnson; if he can ever dig out from under his other commitments, he may do stats for them.]

Minna, on receipt of the robot, immediately manumitted him ("But I can't own you -- you're people!") and suggested he'd be more fun to talk to if he had his own life than if he just sat around on a shelf all day. Remembering that her dad had said he needed more professors, she recommended Buzz for Reality Interface, Artificial Histories, and Net Exploration. And if he hasn't been taken apart, he's still there.
