The same team who brought us the Walt Disney Classics Collection, unveiled this new line based on maquettes actually used in the films. The initial releases touch on early films (Pinocchio and Fantasia) and current films (Frozen) and shorts (Get a Horse).
The sculpts are based on actual maquettes, down to the texture and coloring. For fans of the Walt Disney Classics Collection, these maquettes will make a nice, added addition to your collection.
When the Walt Disney Classics Collection was suspended in December, 2012, many were disappointed...these releases do NOT disappoint!
In addition to the wonderful new figurines, the WDAC is also bringing us two volumes of letterhead stationary as well as a series of note card sets. They became available to retailers in September.
The Letterhead Stationary (vol. 1) features the actual Disney Company letterhead designs that were used during the making of Snow White, Robin Hood, Mary Poppins, Jungle Book, Great Mouse Detective, Ichabod and Mr. Toad, Finding Nemo, and Pete's Dragon.
