Limited Edition 1000
2010 / 11 Collectors Club Year Piece
The new year piece is not only a Limited Edition of Only 1000 available Worldwide but also a spectaular recreation from the "Train Chase" which is featured in "The Wrong Trousers".
Finances are tight at West Wallaby Street and Wallace is forced to take in a lodger. Unfortunately, the successful applicant is a penguin with attitude who turns out to be the notorious criminal, Feathers McGraw. When McGraw adapts one of Wallace’s inventions (an automated pair of ‘Techno Trousers’) and forces him to steal a priceless diamond, Gromit comes to the rescue. The finale sees a rip-roaring train chase through Wallace and Gromit’s house, as the famous duo attempt to bring down Feathers once and for all.
'The Wrong Trousers' was aired on Boxing Day 1993 by the BBC, following on from the Seasonal success of 'A Grand Day Out', which was aired on Christmas Eve just three years earlier. The film received great critical acclaim and went on to win over forty top international awards including the Academy Oscar, and has become one of the most successful animated short films ever made.
