It's Been a Real Slice!

Megara from Disney's Hercules, second release in the Leading Ladies Series is now Sold Out!

Megara is very sarcastic, flirty, strong and independent. She prefers to do things on her own, but when she meets Hercules, she falls in love with him and follows him on his adventures.

Walt Disney Classics Collection introduced the Leading Ladies Series in 2004. Megara (better known as Meg) made her WDCC Debut as the second release in this series and was sculpted by Kent Melton. She was Limited to Production Year 2005.

There are in fact two versions of Meg that were produced. The first version, she had thicker eyebrows (picture at left). A running production change was made and in the second version, her eyebrows are thinner. An image of second version can be found in the Image Gallery.

Collectors should check with their retailer regarding availability since Megara is no longer in inventory.

Originally, Meg was to sing a ballad titled 'I Can't Believe My Heart'. However, as it was decided that Meg's attitude did not suit this ballad, another song 'I Won't Say I'm In Love' was chosen.

Thanks Don for the info. Big fan of the movie and I really like Meg. Glad to know she's moved onto the great big retirement cloud in the sky. Here's hoping for more Hercules pieces as well as more from the Leading Ladies series.
