I think since the blog started, this might be the first time one topic has been the topic of discussion in new blog entries three days in a row :)
I personally have been anticipating this release since seeing the production sample while at Gallery of the Lakes this past November. It finally arrived today and the final sculpt did not disappoint!
So much attention to detail was put into this sculpture. Notice each Toy Soldier and Gingerbread Man is painted painstakingly perfect, you can see the detail in each and every one. Love the 'hand off' in the image above!
Click on each image for a larger view to truly appreciate all the detail in this amazing sculpture! Now if WDCC would only add Mr. Toad as Fezziwig. Sorry, can't miss an opportunity to campaign :)
A different angle than the two we've previously seen.
The partitioned ornament boxes on the floor bring back memories of decorating the tree growing up, as all the ornaments were packaged in this type of box.
Like the detailing of the floor, how the hardwood effect was accomplished and hard to tell from the photo but the way in which the stool was painted, has an aged/worn wood tone to it.
