|“||DESTROY BUZZ LIGHTYEAR!!||„|
|~ The Shape Stealer possessing a Grub.|
The Shape Stealer is the main antagonist of the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command episode The Shape Stealer. It is a dark anthropomorphic synthetic sheet that can possess anyone under its wrapping form.
The Shape Stealer was created by Brain Pod 11 under the codename Project X. Emperor Zurg was originally unimpressed with it until it revealed itself by taking over one of Zurg's Grubs as a demonstration. From there one, Zurg sends the Shape Stealer to assassinate Buzz Lightyear, and the Shape Shifter start to possess many people (such as Buzz's neighbor and several citizens in Trade World) to make it happen (to no avail).
Eventually, the Shape Stealer ended up on Star Command after possessing one of the LGMs, and took over Buzz himself, which has really impressed Zurg. With that in mind, the Shape Shifter sets Star Command to self-destruct in 5 minutes under Zurg's orders before jettisoning itself on an escape pod. However, Mira Nova arrives to the pod and forces herself to fight Buzz to make the Shape Stealer lose control of him. The Shape Stealer angrily attempts to kill Mira for ruining its plan, but the latter opens a hatch, sending the Shape Stealer off into the vacuum of space, much to its dismay. Mira then proceeds to cancel off Star Command's self-destruction, much to everyone's delight and to Zurg's anger.
It is unknown where the Shape Stealer is now, as it is last seen drifting into space with an angry look.
