The Walt Disney Classics Collection premiered limited quantities as an early release to collectors attending Disney's D23 Expo, September 10 - 13, 2009 in Anaheim, California. I'd like to thank Mark Maron from Art Partners Collectibles Inc., Gallery for taking this photo at the D23 Expo to share with everyone. Thanks Mark!
