At long last, eager Russell has earned the final badge (“Assisting the Elderly”) he needs to graduate to Senior Wilderness Explorer.
Honored to celebrate this important achievement with Russell is his unlikely explorer companion Carl Fredricksen, who salutes the boy’s heroics with his own heartfelt award. “This Ellie Badge reaches way back to the very first things we saw in the film. It’s like Ellie brought Carl in and befriended him, and now he’s doing the same thing with Russell,” stated Up co-writer Bob Peterson.
Carl wears pewter eyeglass frames with acrylic lenses and Russell has a pewter clasp on his neckerchief.
Just as Carl bestows upon Russell the greatest honor of all — the Ellie badge — a special “Ellie” Grape Soda pin is included, making this a moment of true merit.Carl Fredricksen and Russell ("Meritorious Moment"), a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 1,000 sculpted by Dusty Horner make their WDCC debut Summer 2011.
