Donald Duck: The WDCS Membership Gift for 2008!


Merrily marching over hill and dale, Donald Duck is the 2008 Membership Gift sculpture! Huey, Dewey and Louie are the perfect companions to Good Scout Donald.

Donald Duck ("Happy Camper") and Nephew ("A Real Trooper") are sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons. Patrick is no stranger sculpting Donald Duck but this is Patrick's first membership gift sculpture release for the Walt Disney Classics Collection!

Donald is available from January 01 thru December 31, 2007. Nephew Duck sculpture will be available from January 01, 2008 thru March 31, 2009. Purchase three identical Nephew Duck sculptures (sold separately) to represent Huey, Dewey and Louie.

Contact any Authorized Walt Disney Classics Collection Dealer and/or the Walt Disney Collectors Society and join Good Scout Donald and his devoted troop as they blaze a trail of excitement into a world of fun-filled adventure!

For those unfamiliar with the short Good Scout, I've included a clip of the animated short (courtesy of YouTube.com) below:

What a fun membership piece and set! If you turn the "Nephew Duck" a bit, it could look like three different pieces. Any word on if they are going to mail us three certificates for the accessory piece, or do you have to get all three at once? Guess we'll find out in a few weeks!

As you can guess, I'm loving this years membership gift! :)

As you said, from the image provided by Enesco, LLL, if you display each nephew at a slightly different angle, they appear to be three different sculptures.

The redemption certificate has two options-Instant Redemption and Ordered. Underneath, there are 3 boxes and you check off whether purchasing or ordering 1, 2 or 3.

I can't imagine anyone not ordering 3!

Hope this helps.

I love this new member piece! It's a great change of pace from the princesses!

Thanks for posting the short that it comes from, Don.

I'll be buying three nephews... wouldn't seem right to do without them! LOL

BTW, I love the postcard that WDCC put together to advertise this new set.

Matthew & Cheryl, glad you enjoyed the short .. isn't it awesome?

The whole Marketing campaign ROCKS! Love the postcard and how they tied the Membership Companion piece with the Membership.

Hoping as they added the Huntsman to Snow White and Sebastian & Flounder to Ariel, we'll see the Bear added as well! What the hell, throw in an Opening Title as well .. LOL!

Darcy said...

This is a cute set!
If they do come out with the bear, you can also use it for the Little Hiawatha set. The bears look the same if not similar to each other. Is it its TWIN???

Matthew said...

Bear -- SOLD!
Opening Title - SOLD!

How about a geyser background! LOL - SOLD!

Some New Year's wishes!

Duckman said...

Great observation Darcy! I compared both shorts and you're correct, Disney used the same bear.

Would be great if Enesco, LLC would release the Bear and you would have the option to display with the Members-Only releases from Good Scout or with Little Hiawatha.

Duckman said...

Matthew, LOVE your enthusiasm!

Count me in as SOLD on both the Bear and Opening Title and LOVE your Geyser accessory idea!

Behr said...

Okay so my burning questions are what could the new series be and which previous series are they resurecting? Any thoughts?

Gregory said...

I LOVE all the new club pieces. Donald is a fun piece and the "Nephews" piece looks like there are actually 3 slightly different pieces in the pictures. A little variation in placements/pose really makes an impact.

As for Belle, that is a beautiful piece.....look at how fragile that rose is!!! I have already gone out to buy a Beast's Fury piece this weekend to go with Belle when she comes out.

While not a Peter Pan collector, Wendy makes a great companion piece to the mermaid lagoon from this year.

Duckman said...

When I heard a previous Members-Only Series was making a return, I immediately thought of the American Folk Heroes. JTDO.

I thought the same thing Greg regarding the placement of the Nephews in the image received.

Congrats on your Beast purchase. Can't wait to get Belle to display the two together!

Hey Don, I love the way you insert the shorts into the blog. Great job. I love this set. I also hope they do the bear.

Duckman said...

Thanks JL! It's been fun incorporating the shorts with the blog entries. Have a few more planned for this month :)

I think the Bear would make an awesome addition! The cool part, he could be used with either Donald & his Nephews or the Little Hiawatha scene. How many would of us end up buying two? I for one would!

Duckman said...

Hi Valery,

The WDCS is offering Donald as the Membership Gift for new members and renewals.

The Donald's Nephew sculpture is a single sculpt that will be available either through instant redemption or ordered direct.

There is only one nephew being done but they're suggesting ordering three to represent Huey, Louie and Dewey.

If you decide to purchase three (your redemption form will have boxes to check how many you would like), the backstamp and certificate are all the same. You will purchasing three of the same sculpture.

Hope this helps. If any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

I just got my brochure, and when I read the recommendation that you get three of the same sculpture to "represent" the three different nephews, I just had to laugh. Leave it to Disney to get people to buy 3 of the exact same sculpture! ;)
