What I'm about to show you is extremely graphic (not really unless you consider mishandled auto-animatronics graphic). Continue after the page break for some horrifying decayed remains of the Figment auto-animatronics used in the original Journey into Imagination attraction...
These were auctioned off on eBay back in 2008. Have a look:
|This one is possibly the Mountain climber Figment or the pirate Figment being that one hand is stretched out, with the other recoiled in.|
|The Figment above was probably the ship driver or the weightlifter Figment. These Figments had hands that are both clasping something like a steering wheel or the dumbells.|
|The figment above is cowboy figment I'm assuming based on his posture and was made to swing back and forth on the horse.|
Sad huh? Now of course the title and tone of this article is one of a joking matter but it is a bit sad to see these old Figment animatronics not taken care of or even archived by Disney. Hopefully someday soon, a brand new Journey Into Imagination attraction will be amusing us again with Dreamfinder and Figment back in their rightful home together.
