Man Officially Becomes Buzz Lightyear

An “everyday man” is officially a space ranger. The Briton formerly known as Sam Stephens has legally changed his moniker to Buzz Lightyear in 2015 to celebrate reaching a charity fund raising target. Since then, it’s been a bit of a headache.

After a year-long legal battle, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency has finally agreed to give the “Toy Story” mega fan a drivers license with his new name on it. “It’s great,” the 26-year-old explains. “I feel like it’s a victory for me as they’re a big old company and I still won.” Plus, as Buzz explains, his name “is always a great ice-breaker and I get a few laughs from people when I introduce myself.”

That doesn’t mean Lightyear is in it for infinity and beyond, though. He says that he’s going to go back to being Sam one day. “It’s inevitable at some point I’m going to have to change it back,” Lightyear explains. “I’ve had loads of problems with it over the last year.” Even if he’s no longer legally Buzz Lightyear, he’ll still have his memorabilia, which he’s not ashamed of, and the Buzz tattoo he has on his leg.
