Huge £300 Buzz Lightyear doll that ‘looks like Morissey’ will ‘traumatise kids’

An eight foot tall Buzz Lightyear figure with a papier mache head being flogged on Facebook for £300 as a Christmas gift has been roasted by social media users.

The terrifying effigy popped up for sale on Facebook Marketplace with the mistake-laden title 'Buzz Lightyear Figure..surprise the children at exmas'.

The Toy Story character's lookalike appears to be a stuffed wetsuit with a papier mache head and a life jacket held up by a trolley – and it costs a cool £300.

The post was shared to the group 'Uninspiring Adverts' – which showcases the worst items for sale on Facebook.

Instead of surprising the children at 'exmas', one person said the weird figure would "traumatise them," as another person added that it looks more like The Smiths singer Morrissey than it does the cartoon character.

"Heaven knows he's miserable now," one bloke said in response, a clever play on The Smiths song title Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now.

"To rock bottom, and beyond!" joked one person, referencing Buzz Lightyear's famous slogan 'to infinity, and beyond!'

Another person added: "That would indeed surprise the children, and possibly traumatise them."

"Yep, that would surprise them when you tell them who it's supposed to be…" a third added.

Popstar and recent I'm A Celeb campmate Boy George, Robbie Rotten from Lazy Town and comedian Bernard Manning were names also thrown about as lookalikes.

It comes after news of Mario Graziano, originally from Milan but living in Plymouth, trying to flog his old jeans on Facebook, administering a plethora of sultry poses to stand out.

The amateur model, who Susanna Reid called an 'unlikely pinup' when he made a surprise appearance on Good Morning Britain, recently turned heads selling an old pair of jeans he bought in a charity shop.

He put the stonewashed blue jeans on 'Let's flog it Cornwall' and quickly went viral, with Facebook users admiring his topless and downright sultry poses.

Asked if he was surprised by the reaction, he told the Daily Star: "I was at first but I have always been an outgoing person and I have enjoyed all the attention I have received."
