A Close Shave Collectable Launches On Kickstarter!

This December marks the 25th anniversary of Wallace & Gromit: A Close Shave, and to celebrate our friends at The Vine Lab have designed a very special, limited edition model inspired by a classic moment in the film!

To bring this model to fans, The Vine Lab has launched a Kickstarter campaign, giving you the chance to back this project and enjoy some amazing rewards in return for your support. 

Created in partnership with Aardman, this exclusive and limited edition model (just 1,995 models will be made, honouring the year of the film’s release) gives fans the chance to own a piece of Aardman history. The Vine Lab has spent 12 months painstakingly researching and designing this model which depicts the moment Gromit flies into the air in his side-car plane. Having had full access to Aardman’s extensive archive for reference, you can be assured that this will be a truly authentic and beautiful replica of a classic W&G moment! 

The Kickstarter campaign includes pledge packages available across different price brackets, and with some amazing rewards, including the chance for backers to receive an Aardman model of themselves! Get in early and your reward will include white handling gloves, a certificate of authenticity, a storyboard print, behind the scenes art cards and an acknowledgement in the end credits. 

If you’d like to be a part of the story, visit the Kickstarter page here. The campaign runs until 26th November 2020.
