Four years earlier, Snow White was represented in the Villains Series with the year 2000 release of
Enthroned Evil. Another WDCS members-exclusive, it was available for just five months from March 15th through August 15th only with a redemption certificate.

Sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons, the highly detailed figure is 10.5" tall and features the Wicked Queen sitting on her throne. Scepter is made of pewter. Original retail price: $395 (USD).






The regular release figurines were individually numbered on the bottom. Dealer displays were marked "D.D." Both simply labeled the piece as "Queen" rather than "Enthroned Evil". The production year stamp was Dumbo's magic feather.

  1. These are wonderful. The way the Evil Queen's cloak swirls to rest over her feet is so elegant, and her Hag form is very disturbing.

  2. I agree...the Queen's cloak is well done on this sculpt and the Hag is definitely a frightening likeness.

  3. Somehow, they managed to reproduce the Quee'ns majesty and the Witch's frightening look !
