Michael J. Ruocco wrote the following in another blog posting:
"The one thing that always bothered me was that they never completed the "Dance of the Hours" scene. I always thought that a sculpture of the elephant with the fish in the bubble would finish off that particular set. Oh well, a man can dream...
It would be great to see some of the more secondary characters getting pieces of their own or even characters from movies or shorts that haven't been represented yet, although that request has somewhat been answered with some of the great sculptures in the past year or so."
Michael brought up a good point and agree we've been seeing a lot more of these type of characters added over the past year that have been heavily requested. How many scenes out there that might be missing that one character you keep hoping will be added? Do we need a complete scene, have a duplication of characters to just get that one character that we've been longing for them to release?
I like how in 2004 they released the White Rabbit ("Royal Fanfare") depicting him in his royal attire (pictured above) and done in the same base as the Croquet Scene (Alice, King & Queen of Hearts and the Card Painter) that made it possible to work him into that scene which he does nicely.
Some others that I personally would like to see done are the following:
* Remaining Crows from Dumbo
* Black Card Painter with Rose Tree (some roses red, some white, some dripping red) from Alice in Wonderland (preferably a boxed set)
* Lady Cluck from Robin Hood
Given that some of these could be very secondary and/or esoteric characters, wondering if best to handle as a Commission Only release?
