Nightmare Before Christmas Release & Signing this Weekend!

Walt Disney Classics Collection Presents
"All Hail the Pumpkin King!"
Sculpture Release & Signing

October 4, 2008
9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Disneyana Shop, Disneyland® Park

Numbered Limited Edition of 500
$750.00 US
Sculpted by Ruben Procopio

This event marks the worldwide debut of a spectacular new Walt Disney Classics Collection sculpture starring the Pumpkin King (Jack Skellington in his rarely seen Halloween night costume) and that briefly-seen-but-impossible-to-miss monstrosity, the Behemoth, just as they are seen at the beginning of the film before the town square sequence. Halloween brings out the best of the worst, as evidenced by the Behemoth ponderously pulling the oddly constructed straw horse on which the Pumpkin King rides through the night.

One of the most elaborate Walt Disney Classics Collection sculptures ever released, this Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of only 500 was sculpted by Ruben Procopio and hand-crafted in fine porcelain. It is richly plussed with over twenty-five separate terrifying touches including elements of precious metals, wire, rope, and resin to bring the scene to three-dimensional life (all based on original animation film reference).

Special Note: Merchandise available while supplies last. Only two (2) items be signed per Guest. No personal items to be signed. Event merchandise must be purchased on the day of release at the event location. Valid Disneyland® Resort receipt may be required.

Just picked this up from Disney Gallery store in Downtown Disney in Orlando. It is HUGE. Very nice piece. I've got #1 of 500.

Hi Bonedaddy. Welcome to the blog and congratulations on obtaining #1/500. Very cool!

Haven't seen myself yet in person. Hope to see at WDW next month if still available.
