The Mcdonalds Changeables toys were some of my favorite toys ever, so when i found out there was a version in Toy Story of a T-bone steak, I had to try making one. Over the course of modeling this i found that Pixar did quite a bit of cheating to make his transformation work, so its been a challenge. Here's where I'm at so far.

I plan on printing a solid static figure thats screen accurate, and then trying to print out this transformable one and see if it works.

Yeah theres some good ones in there! Mattel made the Buzz and Zurg, and theres a Bandai Gashapon set of some of the others from the display at the beginning, but thats about it.

I do have the small fry Buzz, absolutely love him and he even rolls! I'd love to have the fast food display with the comb and all, would be a neat project!

Well, the director of Small Fry (and upcoming Lightyear) saw me post this on Twitter and is now giving me help making it more accurate and working on a logo for the Steak Force as well. Crazy day!
People who work for Pixar are genuinely so nice with fans haha. I remember 10 years ago, Lee Unkrich retweeted my Toy story collection, especially highlighting all of the Ken outfit I had collected from TS3 haha. I was like :0

Just worked out how to have the arms extend and stay in place, as well as tracks for everything else to stay in place. Printing now. Originally i scaled this at about 3 inches, keeping it at McDonalds Changeables style sizing, but Angus Maclane let me know he should be 4", so ive upscaled it, even if that seems way too big for a happy meal toy to me. I had to compromise the design in a few places, most notably the big hole in the side of the neck, but it was the only way to make the transformation work, and he admitted they cheated in a few places to make the model work.
