V.I.N.CENT from Disney's THE BLACK HOLE from MINDstyle
This news totally made my day, and may be my favorite toy announcement of the year so far.
MINDstyle has announced that they have begun work on an ATC (Art Toy Collectable) of the character V.I.N.CENT from Disney's 1979 movie "The Black Hole".
Damn do I love that movie.
As posted on the MINDstyle Blog
"The Black Hole” is Disney’s 1979 science fiction film about a group of space travelers who come across a long missing spaceship teetering on the edge of a black hole, and their discoveries within the ship and beyond… the vast, empty nothingness where space and time end. Anything that crosses its border enters a universe of the complete unknown. And so begins a story that only Disney’s film magicians could tell. A story of robots and humanoids. Of human genius and madness. And a spectacular descent into nature’s ultimate mystery - The Black Hole."
"The Black Hole” was the Walt Disney Company’s first PG-rated production — big news 30 years ago, but times have changed! Directed by Gary Nelson and starred Maximilian Schell, Anthony Perkins, Robert Forster, Joseph Bottoms, Yvette Mimieux, and last but not least, Ernest Borgnine the motion picture has found a loyal fan base. With this being the 30th anniversary of The Black Hole and only rare limited merchandise available, we were all too excited to be working on a limited edition art toy collectibles (ATC) figure of V.I.N.CENT for collectors.
Everything starts with the concept art. Since there was little content for us to reference, we created the line art with DCP. The process got under way with the sculpting and raw resins as shown here."
Price and Release date have not been announced, but you can be damn sure we're keeping an eye on it.
