Gummi Bear Anatomy 3D Puzzles Are Almost Here!
The Jason Freeny x Fame Master Gummi Bear Anatomy 3D puzzle project [previously blogged here] has been in play for almost 5 years, and the company finally announced a release date. Freeny’s clear and green colorways will be released this coming July, along with a surprise (non-Freeny) “Terminator Pattern” cutaway edition. Fame Master cautions that the solid colors represented in the photo above is not indicative of final quality and are for reference only.
Direct-to-fan pre-orders are open for the clear, green and Terminatbear versions at a price of $30 USD each (including 30-45 day surface mailing postage). You can reserve one now by contacting Fame Master’s sales department, and expect to settle your invoice some time in July.
I still think these popjects make a pretty nice affordable sculpture, though, like Toy2R’s Visible Qee, the complexity of Freeny’s original design had to be simplified a lot for production. What do you think?
I think the term “not indicative of final quality” will determine how this will play out overall. Although this has the potential to be something amazing, sometimes art does not always translate into an affordable sculpture or toy or puzzle or whatever. Hopefully it is cool because owning something by Jason would be really cool for most of us because his originals seem to be out of question for someone who is eating generic cheerios while writing this.
