Yes, I believe you are.
Well there were 2 voice actors...
Billy Barty who voiced him in the 83 & 99 versions...
The current voice of Figment is.. Muppet peformer Dave Golez....Who plays Gonzo...
I kept hoping Eric Idle would snap and strangle it.
And the removal of Dreamfinder.
Helps that he was paired up with Dreamfinder making a great duo.
Are you talking about the current or original Figment. If you hate the original Figment, then you can thank Billy Barty who uses his natural voice and wasn't pitched up.
While I like Dave's current voice of Figment. There was something about Billy's original Figment voice that felt more charming. Maybe it's the way the current attraction is but Dave's Figment voice would had been good if it wasn't for how they portray Figment in the current version.
I think it was the way Barty's voice was just a touch gravely while still being high. That's a hard and rather oblique thing to want to imitate.
Part of the problem with the current Figment is the bad script and story he has to work with. Version 1.0 was charming and amazing. Versions 2 and 3, just plain awful.
Didn't Figment make a cameo in the movie?
No, but I mean he is a Figment... he could easily appear. I just think it could be a perfect, easily worked in easter egg if they went that route.
Yeah figment was definitely in Inside Out.
Oops, someone found it before. I'd love a Bing Bong ride, though!
Yes I agree, although I'd love an improved Figment and Dreamfinder ride.
FORGOT ABOUT THAT! Boom baby!
The current version is bland. The first version showed creativity and captured the essence of imagination
Here's a clip from YouTube of the first Imagination.
It's Jim Hill time,
According to him, the Figment survey yielded quite a positive response. He said there is a thought that higher ups want him to remain a part of the pavilion. Possibly as a replacement for the Magic Eye theatre, with an Inside Out attraction taking over the dark ride space. I personally prefer the opposite. The IO characters lend themselves more to the theatre space a la Cranium Command.
Well I hope's he right in that it generated more positive than negative for Figment. That's good.
I agree with you on this. I'd rather see Figment's ride updated to something close to the original ride and have Inside Out take over the theater space. It was inspired, to a degree, by Cranium Command. It's fitting.
I guess they figure Inside Out would get more people on the ride but I think a well done and more promoted Figment (hello, they have comics books they can make a movie out of!!) would drive people into the pavilion. I can also understand the idea behind Figment in the theater space with a fun 3D/4D movie ...
But, it's also Jim Hill. He's had a few things right over the last several years. But we'll see.
The idea is better then what the pavilion currently has
