"Snow White" Character Mini-Busts by Enesco / Grand Jester / Sideshow

A lot of players have been involved with the creation of the Disney Bust Series--a collection of hand-painted, highly detailed, polystone resin character mini-busts. The Disney Company licensed Enesco to manufacture the line. Grand Jester Studios was employed to make the original figs. With the Evil Queen example below, well-known artist Romandy-Simmons came up with the design sketch, sculptor Jacqueline Perrault Gonzales made it a reality, and Sideshow Collectibles handled distribution.

The Evil Queen stands 8" (203.2mm) tall. Limited edition of 3000. First introduced to retailers in June 2012, the figure was available for purchase April 2013. SRP $85.00.

Enesco Item No. 4025905.



Original concept art by Patrick Romandy-Simmons.

  1. These look really great... until my eyes fall to wear they get cut off at the waist. At that point, they look a bit like morbid Jacks-in-The-Box. I know that a bust is supposed to be cut off at a point, but there is something about the addition of the bases at the bottom that moves it from cool to creepy for me.
