WDCC Snow White Figurine (70th Anniversary - 2007)

We wrap up our look at the 70th anniversary commemorative items with this open edition Snow White and Dopey figurine entitled A Sweet Send Off. It was introduced by the Walt Disney Classics Collection in July 2007. Sculpted by artist Kent Melton, the figure stands 6.375" tall. Along with the usual bottom impressions, (the first year production mark was Captain Hook's hook), the piece also bears a 70th anniversary stamp. Original retail price $199 (USD).

Update: February 6, 2012...

It was just over a week ago that I posted the above info on the Sweet Send Off figurine. Now news comes to us via Duckman's Blog that the 5 year old WDCC piece is being retired. It had a nice run.


Makes one wonder if a 75th Anniversary sculpt might be in the works. Special thanks to Disney Showcase Key for the tip about the retirement.

  3. The glossier figurines tend to be too harsh and stark for Snow White. This one's soft colors and soft texture so perfectly capture the characters of both Snow White and Dopey. It is remarkably stunning in its elegantly simple design.

    And SOOOO cute!
