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.
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.
