Fast forward to July, 2013 and finally saw the film for the 1st time while on vacation! The movie is cute little gem with some very endearing characters, a cute father/son storyline and great music. Within days of returning home, purchased the blu ray plus the WDCC sculpture.
A great job was done in bringing this character from 2D to 3D, from the detail of his feathers to the pose. It's too bad this character didn't catch on and do well for the line, would have loved to seen Abby Mallard and Fish added.
Notice the painting effect in his comb. Upon unpacking the piece and checking it over, didn't notice the paint effect until I took photos and were uploading them. My first thought, thought it was the dreaded crazing! I looked over the official photos supplied at the time of its release and auctions on eBay of photos of the actual piece and noticed it was apparent in them as well. The more I looked at it, it reminded me of the design of the alien tile that appears in Chicken Little's room. Upon viewing of the blu ray when it arrived, the paint effect is in the film as well. If the alien design, a very cool touch!
