As a child, my favorite Disney characters were Dreamfinder and Figment. I loved the EPCOT attraction as it originally was. It was a delight for kids and adults alike. So when custom artist Justin Marshall came to us with a Journey Into Imagination custom, I could not wait to share it with everyone.
DV: So you’re not a big fan of the current version of the ride?
Justin: The ride now is… half ass done, and its a shame for all the creativity and hard work that went into it and now it sits in crates in a warehouse some where on the Disney property.
DV: I really like the retro feel of this custom. It seems like something you would find at EPCOT in the ’80s. But this figure really seems to hold special sentimental value to you.
Justin: I made this to keep the attraction alive, and hopefully the new generation of disney lovers will someday get to experience this attraction the way it was intended with some 21st century tweaks.
But wait, there’s more! Justin also wanted us to include these 3″ Figments as a compliment to the 9″ Journey figure.
