What happens when more than 30 Disney and Pixar artists are asked to put their spin on the adorable little green men from the Toy Story trilogy? That’s what MINDstyle asked and what they got was the ‘Alien Invasion: When Aliens Meet Artists’ sculpture exhibition that recently opened in Hong Kong.
Using a basic mold of a Toy Story Alien, each artist put their spin on the film icon and MINDstyle has begun sharing just a few of them for those of us unable to attend the exhibition in person. Included are artists Anthony Whitfield, Ben Butcher, Bacon Tan, Brian Godlewski, Ben Su, Charlie Price, Chris Meeker, Dennis Cannon, Elaine Chang, Elena Eghtesady, Hyun Ju Park and Pat Au.
Today we are blessed with first looks of several figures from the Alien Invasion project by MINDstyle. Featuring contributions from 30 Disney and Pixar artists, each have put their own individual spin on a blank figure in the shape of the LGM from the Toy Story films.
The exhibition tour kicks off June 15 at Hong Kong’s Times Square. For a preview of other figures from the exhibit, check out MINDstyle’s official blog.
We also get our first look at MINDstyle’s limited edition art toy collectible (ATC) of the main character from John Lasseter’s original short, Tin Toy. The figure will first be released at San Diego Comic Con. No word on edition size or whether it will be an exclusive to the SDCC.
The fifth installment of the very popular video series from Disney Consumer Products has been released in which John Lasseter talks about some of the background on the Aliens from the Toy Story Definitive collectibles line from Thinkway Toys.
