First '2011 Production Mark' Sighting!
The 2011 Production Mark has been sighted! The Umbrella production mark made its debut on Friar Tuck ("Bemused Badger") from Robin Hood.
The 2011 Production Mark (pictured at right) is the Umbrella from Walt Disney's live-action classic Mary Poppins (1964).
The Walt Disney Classics Collection features a yearly Production Mark that is incised or imprinted on the bottom of sculptures produced during the calendar year. This mark indicates the calendar year in which the piece was produced.
Update 05-25-11: Friar Tuck is arriving with both production marks, 2010 (Sword and Anvil from The Sword in the Stone) and 2011 (Umbrella).
The Secondary Guide has been updated with both markings for those keeping track.
