More Details on the Upcoming Sixth Release in the POC Series!
During the Pirates of the Caribbean Adventures on the 7 Seas Lagoon at the WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort, collectors were given a sneak peek of fall and winter releases from Walt Disney Classics Collection displayed at the Art of Disney Gallery located in the Downtown Disney® Marketplace from Tuesday, May 22nd thru Monday, May 28th. One of those sneak peeks was the upcoming sixth release in the Pirates of the Caribbean Series:
Jail Scene with Dog: "Here, Give Us the Keys ya, Scrawny Little Beast!"
Type of Release: Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 750
Size: 12" (height) x 13-3/4" (base footprint) x 8" (depth) - This is the base footprint dimension which is measuring the outline around the base. The actual total width of the piece is a wider (closer to 17 1/2" wide) because of the overhang of the beam on top over the edge of the base on one side and the overhang of the dog's tail over the edge on the other side of the base.
SRP: $599.00 US
Release Date: Winter 2008 (Actual release date has not been confirmed)
Concept by Ruben Procopio and Sculpted by Tim Bruckner
The above collage was created from photos taken by fellow collector and friend, Michelle (aka Babette) of the prototype available in May during the sneak peek at the Art of Disney Gallery located in Downtown Disney® Marketplace. The May prototype was pretty early in development. A number of revisions have been incorporated since that early prototype. A more recent prototype was available for preview this past weekend during the Pirates of the Caribbean Series Sculpture Release & Signing held at Disneyland® Park with Ruben Procopio.
An official announcement with more current images (including rear detail views) will be made in the near future. I know many have been wondering the edition size and pricing and this blog entry is solely to present that information. I for one am looking forward to the official photos!
