Maleficent (Transformation) has Sold Out!

The Walt Disney Classics Collection 50th Anniversary sculpture Maleficent (as a Dragon): Evil Eruption has Sold Out! The sculpture has not only sold out to retailers but also before it has begun shipping!

Plussed with glass and pewter, this magnificent piece, one of the most unusual and elaborate sculptures ever crafted by the Walt Disney Classics Collection, captures every fearsome detail of Maleficent’s terrifying transformation, reflecting the sublime artistry of Walt Disney’s animated classic Sleeping Beauty.

The Dragon's wing span is 10" wide and the height of the Dragon and Clouds is 7". The majority of sculpture is porcelain (Dragon at top, Clouds on top and bottom, etc.). There's a connection point at the top and bottom of the glass that is resin, the Maleficent sculpture inside the glass is resin. The glass used is smooth and tinted green but there are vertical striations air-brushed onto the surface as a special effect.

Maleficent's Transformation, a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 500 was sculpted by Ruben Procopio.

A great companion piece to Maleficent (Transformation) is Prince Phillip, a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 1,000, sculpted by Dusty Horner. Valiant is the 3rd release in the Heroes & Heroines Series.

Prince Phillip has not sold out, limited quantities are still available.

Please contact your Authorized WDCC Dealer and/or the Walt Disney Theme Parks for availability.

Very glad to see that this has sold out!

It's such a unique design and not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm so glad that WDCC attempted this.

Congratulations on the sell-out!

Hi Matthew,

Yes, wondered how it would be received. Pretty cool that it sold out, even before it began shipping!

As you said, not everyone's cup of tea and/or what they expect from WDCC. That is what I like about WDCC, they're not afraid to step outside the box.

Look forward to seeing this one in person in a few weeks!

For anyone who has not seen this in person.....WOW! It's a 100 times more impressive in person seeing the final version. Pictures don't do this piece justice. I went from being on the fence to being sold on this piece. GREAT JOB WDCC!

Thanks for your assessment Greg. For anyone unable to see in person, I'm sure they appreciate this.

Michelle sent me some images last Fri. Was cool to see looking down into the cloud. When I talked to Bob, he wasn't planning on getting after seeing it in the case. Turns out Ray had the prototype in the case vs. the final sculpt. When he saw the actual sculpt, felt as you did and purchased. He said three (3) other people did the same thing.

Hope to see while at WDW next month.

It was awesome in person. Extremely well executed. The painting on the transforming cape gives the appearance that you can see thru the dragon wings. Amazingly well done!
