2008 Villains Series Release Announced: the Queen of Hearts!

Sketches began to arrive today and included is the announcement of the Villains Series release for 2008 .. from Disney's animated classic, Alice in Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts!

Queen of Hearts: "Who's Been Painting My Roses Red?" (12")will be the 2008 Villains Series sculpture debuting in May 2008. Sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons, it has a SRP of $299.00 US. It will be released in May 2008 (Society Members will receive their redemption certificates with the May issue of Sketches).

The Queen of Hearts is a character from the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by the mathematician, Lewis Carroll. She is a foul-tempered monarch, who is quick to decree death sentences at the slightest offense. Her most famous line, one which she repeats often, is "Off with their heads!"

When pleased, she can be quite pleasant, but can almost at once change to enraged. The Queen is voiced by Verna Felton.

OMG! I SOOOOO have to have her! LOVE IT!!! I may pick up an extra membership so that I can have an extra one of these for my office at work.

As much as I would have loved to see one similar to the Big Figure piece, this shows the Queen in her true colors.

Thanks for giving me something to look forward to, but don't know if I can wait until May!

This is what I call a Great Job. This pieces has everything I expect for a Villain Series release. I don't care it is repeat, for this Queen of Hearts looks to me a million times better than the old one.

WHAT!! I CAN NOT BELIEVE IT! This is one of my most favorite films! This is a MUST HAVE! This Queen of Hearts looks to be more of a villain than the previous one. I was thinking a couple of days ago what other characters that I will like to have. I keep looking at my figurines & Alice in Wonderland seemed to be incomplete! I would like to have more of the characters such as Dinah, Walrus & the Carpenter (Oysters), Dodo, animals from Tulgey Woods, Doorknob, Black Card Painters: "Painting the Roses Red". OH THE LIST GOES ON & ON! THERE IS HOPE! "LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!!!"

This is one fantastic piece. I can't wait to see what the back looks like as the rose bush looks like it is held up by the roots only. Loving this.

The Villains Series is really my favorite series and adding her was very much necesary.

I love this piece. It's tie between this and Belle as my favourite piece for next year. The year starts very good IMO
