Jim Shore releases his newest figurine at the Art of Disney in Disney Springs. The figurine is that of Mickey Mouse riding the Astro Orbiter, a ride in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom. This piece comes ahead of the 50th Anniversary figurine of Goofy and the Haunted Mansion statue.
Jim Shore Mickey Mouse Astro Orbiter Figurine – $85
This figurine appears to be hand carved out of wood (it’s not wood though) and textured to have a scalloped, uneven surface.
Jim Shore’s usual checkered pattern makes an appearance on Mickey’s ears and the sides of the Astro Orbiter.
The Astro Orbiter appears to be painted with gold, red and blue. The vehicle sits atop a spiral, pole base.
The base of the piece is in the shape of a gear and has a beaten, gold top. Gold lettering on the sides show this piece is a part of the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World.
Though very simple, the Astro Orbiter Mickey makes calls to Tomorrowland, the 50th Anniversary of Disney World, and is all presented in the signature hand-made style of Jim Shore.
