2009 Membership Year Announced!

As part of the remainder of the 4th Quarter releases, was the announcement of some of the membership offerings from the Walt Disney Collectors Society for 2009!

Smiles and surprises are yours to enjoy all year with the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Join or renew your membership for 2009 and you grin with a loveable Dwarf, thrill to wicked monarch’s power, laugh with a zany bunch of buzzards, cross the path of a tyrannical tiger, and more ....

This entry will focus on the three offerings from the 1937 animated classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs:
  • Membership Gift-Dopey
  • Members Only Ornament-Snow White Apple Ornament
  • Of Dreams & Magic-Evil Queen and Raven
Sweet Dopey ("Gleeful Grin") is the Membership Gift Sculpture for 2009. Sculpted by Bruce Lau, it will be available from January 2009 thru December 2009.

2009 marks the return of the Members Only Ornament. The Apple Ornament ("Sweet Surprise") is available from January 2009 thru March 2010 and will be available for Instant Redemption at authorized Walt Disney Classics Collection retailers when collectors purchase their Membership Kits. Sculptor information is not available.

This year's Of Dreams & Magic release marks the first time a Villain has been the subject of this series plus marks the WDCC debut of the Evil Queen's Raven.

"Now Begins Thy Magic Spell", seventh release in the series, recreates the terrifying moment when the Evil Queen completes her potion and summons the thunder and rain. Richly plussed with glass, rope and pewter and sculpted by Kent Melton, this two-piece set is available from January 2009 thru March 2010.

Below is a short clip (courtesy of of the Evil Queen as she transforms, through the help of her magic spell, into the Old Hag:

I saw the apple and it really is cute. Probably not everyone's taste, but it is mine. I think it came out great.
