Iron Studios Gets A Slam Dunk With Space Jam Bugs Bunny Art Scale Statue

Space Jam made a comeback recently and, of course, the film brought Bugs Bunny back along with it. The iconic Looney Tunes mascot not only gets a starring role in Space Jam: A New Legacy, but he’s also going to receive an excellent-looking 1:10 scale statue thanks to Iron Studios! The Art Scale piece shows off Bugs wearing his Tune Squad uniform and is available for preorder now.

I must confess to never having seen either of the Space Jam movies, but I’ve heard some good things. I am a Looney Tunes fan, though, so anything with any of the characters will at the very least get some excitement out of me. Bugs looks great and I like that Iron Studios gave collectors the option to have him either holding the basketball or not. It’s not a crucial swap-out, but I always enjoy some display variety. 

I would imagine that Iron Studios is planning to follow up on Bugs with other Space Jam entries, whether they be members of the Tune Squad or their opponents on the Goon Squad. No matter who gets the 1:10 scale treatment, I’m always game for new Looney Tunes characters on my shelf, so I can’t wait to see what’s next. 

The Iron Studios Space Jam: A New Legacy – Bugs Bunny 1:10 Art Scale Statue is available for preorder now and is slated for a Q4, 2022 release. 

One of the world’s best-known cartoon characters joins the basketball icon, LeBron James, along with his old friends from Looney Tunes animations, on a virtual reality basketball court. They need to play a basketball game where, if they win, the prize will be their freedom and their way back to their world. Derived from the new Space Jam: A New Legacy movie, Iron Studios proudly presents its “Bugs Bunny Art Scale 1/10 – Space Jam: A New Legacy” statue, featuring the most iconic animation bunny of all time.

Far more than just a cartoon character, Bugs Bunny is a pop culture star, having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Created in the late 1930s by Leon Schlesinger Productions, which later became Warner Bros. Cartoons, one of the most famous animation studios in history, the rabbit has become an American cultural icon and official mascot for Warner Bros. Entertainment. Starring in more than a hundred short animated films, he is a multimedia figure present in movies, TV series, comics, games, and several products. One of the main characters in Looney Tunes by Merrie Melodies, produced in the golden age of American animation between the 30s and 60s, Bugs Bunny, is still present to this day, entertaining and winning over new generations of fans with his cheeky way, bold, cheerful, playful and mocking, along with his characteristic catchphrase… “Ehh…What’s up, Doc?”.

The original Space Jam movie, from 1996, featured the iconic Looney Tunes from the animations interacting with the legendary basketball player Michael Jordan. The new movie called Space Jam: A New Legacy, repeats the same formula, this time with the court star LeBron James in a fictional version of himself. In the film, the basketball star is abducted by an artificial intelligence called Al-G Rhythm into a virtual reality in which he needs the help of Bugs Bunny, along with leading Looney Tunes, to win a basketball match against monster avatars of players from the Goon Squad. If LeBron wins this match, he will be able to return to his reality and save his family, who were also kidnapped by Al-G.

Bugs Bunny will have an interchangeable arm (without the basketball) and, along with the figure of NBA star LeBron James, will be the first characters derived from “Space Jam: A New Legacy” to get their statues by Iron Studios. The items are sold separately, and they are already available for Pre-Order. The other players from this collection will come soon to add to this team. Follow the news on Iron Studios’ social media, and if you have any questions, just need to ask: “Ehhh, What’s up Doc?”!
