HOW DID I MISS THIS! ! ! yes sorry about the capital letters. I was actually screaming as I’m typing. I cannot believe I missed this release.
Not only is this one of my childhood favourite characters ,this marvellous piece was for charity! and ALL the proceeds went to the charity how amazing is that?!
Jam Factory received his own small batch of Gromit Unleashed figurines of his design, and so he did something special with them! All 50 sign and doodle the boxes, sign the underside of the figurine and package, with a specially designed digitally numbered certificate, postcard and sticker! Each one was £50 (instead of the normal £35) and every single penny went to the charity, Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal which cares for sick children at the Bristol Children’s Hospital. Since only having 50, he put them all up for pre-order over at jamfactory.bigcartel.com
Sadly I’m too late
Big CONGRATULATIONS to Jam Factory for All 50 figurines sold out in under 60 seconds And raised £2,500 for Charity in less than a minute
you can have a look at a short video of the MAKING OF 5 Foot Gomit
As I read more into the Gromit Figure, I find out that I can still get one but on a waiting list which is a win win. I don’t think this will be Artist Proof but still a good buy and still goes to charity. You can find out more information at http://www.gromitunleashed.org.uk/ so lets wait till the next production run of Gromit.
In the mean time visit the Jam factory Store and pick up some beauty’s Jam Factory
Shirley Creamhorn & Shithawk is a vinyl adventure , working in partnership with Columbian sculptor Alex Avelino, under the guise of Big Spoon Toys!
Shirley is their first toy together, with Gavin Strange designing her then Alex bringing her to life by sculpting her! She was then handed to a toy company in China that produced the mold and 500 plastic injection copies. After that they where shipped, by boat, to a Colombian toy company where they were hand painted (using both brush tip and airbrush). Finally, they went to another company to get the Big Spoon logo stamped on her foot.
She’s 5.7 inches tall, comes in Green and Blue and limited to just
250 of each colourway * They found out there was a theft at the warehouse they were being stored in and over half were stolen, so just 234 in total, just over 100 of each colourway! *, with each one being hand numbered and the boxes being signed!
After 6 long years of development and shipping woes, Shirley Creamhorn and the Shithawk are finally here in the UK, and they need a good home, will you look after them!?
