Pre-Order – Statue Cowardly Lion – Wizard of Oz – Art Scale 1/10 – Iron Studios
Following the yellow brick road, a girl passes by a dark and scary forest at night, where she comes across an enormous feline figure that jumps out of the dark. Furiously roaring to scare her, she hides behind a big tree, but her pet dog Toto barks and growls at the beast that chases after him. Fearing for her small friend, she slaps the feline’s nose and scolds him, and, to her surprise, the apparently fierce animal has a breakdown and starts crying and sobbing. With the paws retracted and a frightened face, Iron Studios bring the statue “Cowardly Lion – The Wizard of Oz – Art Scale 1/10”, with the anthropomorphic lion of Oz who is even afraid of himself, played by Bert Lahr, with his bravery medal on his chest, over a pedestal of the yellow brick road at his feet. He then joins the girl Dorothy and her friends in the search for the mysterious wizard, so that the lion can ask the wizard to make him brave.
Iron Studios also bring the Deluxe version statue “Cowardly Lion Deluxe – The Wizard of Oz – Art Scale 1/10”, with the frightened feline over a pedestal of the beautiful landscape of his enchanted world, next to a tree from his forest, with towers from the Emerald City in the background and the yellow brick road at his feet.
