That's it Gromit...cheeeeese! We'll go somewhere where there's cheese! A quote from "A Grand Day Out”, the short animated film that kick-started the phenomenom that is Wallace and Gromit. Now 20 years old, the Oscar winning plasticine double-act’s first adventure was filmed over a six year period by a then unknown student animator called Nick Park, working out of the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield. So it is here that Robert Harrop are also starting their collection of Wallace and Gromit figurines, created in close consultation with Nick Park himself and Aardman Animations - the spiritual home of Wallace and Gromit. One particular preoccupation with Nick Park was the faithful reproduction of the “Thumby" nature of the modelling and the evolution of the characters' appearance over time. It is this sort of detail that we know is appreciated by our collectors and is sure to add to the future provenance of the collection.
