Future Friend

Edition Size: 500        Release Date: TBA

Greetings Disneylanders, from a bright world yet to come!  The Tomorrowland Spaceman, in his very special suit and helmet designed for life on the Moon, is a sure sign that our future will be FUN!

Outstanding series with more to come! The color palette is bright & playful, yet smart. Great work as always from Kevin & Jody!

The art direction of these figurines is reminiscent of those great cut paper sequences from 1962's "Symposium on Popular Songs" I think Bill Justice and X Atencio were behind that style.

Kevin, I may have missed it, but how big are these figures?

Kendra Melton said...

Wow all these figures are just wonderful. So much personality!

Dan Alexander said...

You guys are so creative--these characters are outstanding!

FYI, the Spaceman, Jungle Skipper, and Tour Guide are all on Display in the Disney Gallery now, and they are even more impressive in person. They are much bigger than I expected (except for that little Tour Guide), making a much bigger impression visually. The Jungle Skipper I think is especially well executed- he's got such nice sharp angles on his hands- I love that kind of definition in sculptures and it's nice that it doesn't get watered down in the manufacturing process.

Was at Disneyland last night and I saw the work. The fig's said to be released in September. Also, the left arm of your Future Friend figure was broken off in the display cabinet. Don't know if you can do a repair.
Looking forward to the release, all the best!

Thanks all!

Noe, thanks for letting us know. I'm surprised Disney displayed a broken sample, but the Spaceman has been replaced today. Rest assured, all of our spacemen will have two arms!
