Hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start! Being an accountant, mine is busy as usual with year-end, opening the new year in addition to taking down holiday decorations, getting Amanda back to school and spending as much free time as I can with my latest passion/obsession, collecting Disney Pixar diecast cars from Cars .. LOL! This takes me back to when younger collecting Matchbox with my brother .. good times and having just as much fun this time around!
Onto WDCC News & Updates:
2009 Membership Kits: For those on auto-ship with their Society memberships, those have already shipped and starting to arrive in homes and kits are also starting to arrive at Authorized WDCC Dealers as well.
Special Note: Included with dealer information for 2009, it was noted that Dumbo from The Mickey Mouse Club had a status change. When originally released, he was listed as an Open Edition release. His status was changed to Limited to Production Year 2008. Check with your dealer for availability.
Decided today to get some much needed updates to the website, adding some additional angles (Elizabeth Swann & Will Turner) and first quarter releases to the Secondary Guide.
Clicking on the image at right, you'll find additional angles for both Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner have been added to the presentation page. Will Turner is an Open Edition release and Elizabeth Swann is a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 1,000. Both were sculpted by Joel Harlow and scheduled for a February 2009 release along with an Opening Title.
For your added viewing pleasure, Ruben Procopio has added concept drawings for both Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner on his blog, Masked Avenger Studios. Be sure to click on each concept drawing for a larger view.
