Happy to be on his swamp in the forest of a medieval kingdom, the huge and robust figure of an Ogre with green skin hugs his best equine friend, and given his brute nature, in a not very delicate way, but with great affection (even though he does not show it) by the kind and quite a chatty adventure companion and bringing on his left shoulder the small and literally sweet figure of a temperamental living cookie. Derivative from one of the most fun and praised animation masterpieces, Iron Studios proudly bring the statue “Shrek, Donkey and The Gingerbread Man Deluxe – Shrek – Art Scale 1/10”, their first release from this beloved franchise, with the most famous and charismatic Ogre in movies with two of his best friends, over a scenery pedestal of his home swamp next to the warning sign to scare away unwanted visitors.
In a medieval land, pleased with his lonely life in Duloc’s swamp, Shrek sees his peace and tranquility threatened by the egocentric Lord Farquaad, a tyrant ruler that decides to kick out every magic creature to the forest. Annoyed by the sudden invasion of so many fairy tale protagonists in his territory, he leaves to have it out with the leader of humans, and when he wins the knight’s tournament unexpectedly, he ends up making an agreement with Farquaad to rescue the beautiful princess Fiona, that was living asleep and imprisoned in a castle guarded by a dragon, whom Farquaad wishes to take as wife to become king, and as a reward for Shrek, he would then take the magic creatures from his forest. Shrek goes on his mission, accompanied by a talking Donkey, that joins him out of gratitude after Shrek accidentally saves his life. In this adventure, Shrek also gets as an ally the Gingerbread Man, or simply Gingy, a small living candy that was created by Muffin Man and tortured by the evil Lord Farquaad.
Released by DreamWorks in 2001, inspired by the book Shrek! by William Steig, the praised movie made with CGI animation was a huge box office hit and was critically acclaimed, winner of the first Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, besides winning many other awards and having the protagonist leave a mark with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The success led to 3 sequels and 2 holiday specials and inspired a successful franchise with games, a musical, Comic Books, Toys, Collectibles, and much more. Revealed at SDCC 2022 on Iron Studios’ booth and presented in more detail on the Inside Iron Studios Day show, already available for Pre-Order, the statue inaugurates a new franchise by Iron Studios that promises to bring beautiful news in the future.
