Proud of his creation, the old artisan carpenter gives the final touches in the painting of the small wooden doll sat in the workbench in front of him, with the wise and joyful Jiminy Cricket on his left foot. In a rich set of his workshop full of details, with bottles, jars, and paint canisters filling the space shared with Figaro, his short pet cat and a small and detailed carved totem by his side as the base for the fishbowl of the bashful Cleo, his other pet, the tiny goldfish. With wooden chips overflowing a bucket at his feet; on the edge of the base, over the rustic floor rests another one of his marionettes. Smiling as if he’s admiring with tenderness his father and creator, Iron Studios proudly present the statue “Pinocchio Deluxe – Disney Classics 100 Years – Art Scale 1/10”, inspired by the classic film from 1940, adding to the collection that celebrates the 100 years of Disney.
Iron Studios will also release the statue in the regular version “Pinocchio – Disney Classics 100 Years – Art Scale 1/10” in a simpler base with the small doll on Geppetto’s workbench and Jiminy Cricket at his feet, but without the pets and other details of the set. And the very limited statue “Pinocchio 100th – Disney Classics 100 Years – Art Scale 1/10”, with an extremely decorated silver base, with the front plate celebrating the 100 Years of Disney, another special item for fans and collectors to celebrate and mark this centenary, done in a limited edition with only 100 statues available.
Still considered by many as one of the best Disney animated films, Pinocchio tells the story of a wooden marionette doll, that after being sculpted by an old woodworker called Geppetto is brought to life by the magic Blue Fairy. The Fairy that grants him life also tells Pinocchio that if he shows to be brave, truthful, and altruist, she can make his dream of becoming a real boy come true. Although Pinocchio was really naughty and initially caused a lot of trouble, he was careful not to lie, otherwise, all kind of complications happened with his growing nose. Pinocchio is a good-hearted character and with the help of his trusted friend, the lovely Jiminy Cricket, that acts as his consciousness, he is able to prove his value by saving his father, and the Blue Fairy fulfills her promise turning him into a human boy. Produced by Walt Disney Productions and distributed by RKO Radio Pictures, based on the novel Le avventure di Pinocchio by Italian writer Carlo Collodi, this was the first animated movie to get two Oscar awards, winning both Best Original Score and Best Original Song with When You Wish Upon a Star.
Considered to be one of the best animated movies ever made, the second long feature film produced by Disney with their original characters is still predominant on pop culture, originating many themed attractions on Disney parks and in other forms of franchise. Already available for Pre-Order, the statue Pinocchio Deluxe was presented on Iron Studios’ booth at SDCC 2023 and revealed in detail on the show Inside Iron Studios Day of July on Iron Studios’ official YouTube channel.
