The Walt Disney Classics Collection sent out the following email blast (pictured at right) this morning regarding the upcoming Figment Event to be held at World Disney World in Orlando, FL on Saturday, May 7th at the Art of Disney, Epcot®.

This new Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 750 Walt Disney Classics Collection sculpture presents Figment as a Knight, just as in the attraction!

Based on original attraction reference, Figment is hand-crafted of fine porcelain, hand-painted and kiln-fired. Sculpted by Jacqueline Perreault Gonzales with creative direction from Disney Master Artist David Pacheco, Figment stands approximately 6 ¼” high and retails for $140.00.

Please visit The Art of Disney Parks web site for information about the event and how to order: htp://psc.disney.go.com/eventservices/artofdisneyparks//index.html.

This Figment is awesome! Wish I could have the chance to meet
Jacqueline. She's had some terrific WDCC sculpts.

Wouldn't it have made more sense if Ms. Gonzales was at the Art of Disney the weekend of the D23 convention celebrating WDW 40th anniversary? More product would be sold then. It would be just one more week and I think attendance would be better. Just my humble opinion.

Jacqueline Perreault Gonzales has done some great pieces during her time as a sculptor for the WDCC. Both her Bambi & Thumper and Gus & Jaq (featured in the email blast) are my favorite sculptures of these characters!

I too wish Walt Disney World would have scheduled the signing event to coincide with the D23 Destination D event vs. having the weekend before. As you said, I think it would have sold more product in addition to Figment plus gave more collectors an opportunity to meet such a talented sculptor.
