Final Space may not carry the clout of Rick and Morty – or many other Adult Swim originals, for that matter. Despite a smaller audience, the series has amassed a cult following after the two seasons of the show that have been released. Outside of dozens of items including the lovable Mooncake, merchandise has been sparingly released for the property, forcing a pair of dedicated fans to create two statues – a move that will likely lead most fans to hope the creation of more merchandise in the toys and collectibles sector.
On the show's official Twitter account – which is run by series creator and Nashville native Olan Rogers – a pair of statues were shared Monday afternoon, featuring Final Space leads Gary Godspeed (Rogers) and Nightfall (Tika Sumpter). The Godspeed model was created by concept artist Andrew Morris and features both the show's main character and Mooncake. That statue model can be seen below.

Gary and Mooncake from Final Space! Been working on this off and on for a little while. Really pleased with how it’s come out. All sculpted in ZBrush, textured in Substance Painter and rendered with Cycles in Blender 2.81. I purposefully wanted it to look a bit like plastic, almost like the amazing statues from Sideshow Collectables. Both characters were based off the official character sheets available online. I’ll share a load more wip stuff and clay renders on my artstation in the next couple of days. Link in bio. @olanrogers what do you think? 😃 @finalspace #FinalSpace #GaryGoodspeed #Mooncake #3D #3DStatue #ZBrush #ZBrush2020 #Pixologic #SubstancePainter #Blender #Cycles #BlenderRender #CGI #Rendering #Artist #FanArt #DigitalArt #3DArt
The second item was crafted by tweeter @walkerstudiowks and features an actually sculpted statue, as compared to the model of Godspeed and Mooncake. The Nightfall statue is reminiscent of a vinyl piece from the likes of Funko, a stylized version of the character that appears on-screen in the series.
So much thanks for all the support!!! I'm humbled and thrilled y'all like my sculpt! Really, just wow! 🥰 Well, w/o further ado...here's my finished Nightfall! Gonna take some better pics during the daylight, but here she is as of tonight 😊 @Finalspace @OlanRogers @devinator200 pic.twitter.com/tQ1tk14wvx— walkerstudioworks (@walkerstudiowks) June 8, 2020
Though a third season of the show has yet to be officially announced by Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, Rogers has been very vocal about its development on social media platforms. In fact, the writer and comedian shared an image over the weekend of himself and others directing actor David Tennant during a recent voice session completed through Zoom. Tennant voices the Lord Commander in the series.
