One of the most iconic lines we’ve all taken away from the brave little bunny Thumper in Bambi is, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” This is not one of those cases because we have a lot to get excited.
Debuting for the first time at Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC), Kidrobot has teamed up with Disney for a life-size resin art sculpture Bambi and Thumper based on the characters from the 1942 film Bambi. The limited-edition sculpture was designed by South African artist Colus Havenga, who has worked with Kidrobot for nearly a decade.
The capable young prince of a deer is just over 20 inches tall while his best friend Thumper is about half that tall. From the curious baby animal eyes to the pom pom tails, the movie details shine, making it look like the cartoon characters are standing before you.
Fans can meet Colus at Kidrobot Booth #2846 on Saturday, July 23 at 2 p.m., where the designer will sign an exclusive lithograph of the characters for those who pre-order the Bambi and Thumper life-size resin art sculpture. Those who cannot make it to the SDCC can also pre-order the sculpture online for $700 on Friday, July 22 at 9 a.m. PT/noon ET. (Note: the link will go live Friday morning at 9 a.m. PT/noon ET.)
