A Surprise Retirement!

One of the retirement announcements on May 23rd included the retirement of the Snow White Cottage Scene (pictured at right) that caught many by surprise!

Snow White ("Whistle While You Work") and the Dwarf's Cottage Bench were unveiled during the 2004 Celebration of Walt Disney Art Classics Convention. Snow White (8") with a SRP of $150.00 US and the Dwarf's Cottage Bench (5") with a SRP of $75.00 US were both sculpted by Kent Melton.

Third Quarter 2005 saw the addition of Deer with Laundry ("Spring Cleaning") and Turtle with Chipmunk ("Ticklish Turtle"). Deer with Laundry (7-1/2") with a SRP of $150.00 US and Turtle with Chipmunk (3-1/2") with a SRP of $50.00 US were both sculpted by Bruce Lau.

I liked this scene. Did they say if they retired it to make room for the new Snow White and Dopey piece?

Haven't heard the reasoning behind the retirement, whether it was poor sales, low inventory or simply to make room for the new Snow White and Dopey sculpture.

Since Dopey is represented in the Mine Scene and that was not retired, going to wager the Snow White Cottage Scene wasn't retired specifically due to the release of the upcoming Snow White and Dopey.
