    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.

    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.

    Yes.
    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.

    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.
