As impetuous as she is feisty, Princess Anna wants nothing more than to bridge the icy divide between herself and big sister Elsa, the future queen of Arendelle.  But when Elsa reveals her hidden power and accidentally freezes the entire kingdom, it’s up to Anna to venture forth into the wintry wonderland created by her self-exiled sister and bring Elsa back home to undo the damage she’s unwittingly wrought.  

This character-authentic polystone mini-bust is designed by Patrick Romandy-Simmons and sculpted by Jacqueline Perreault.  Standing 7” tall, Anna comes painted and ready to display.

Regal but aloof Elsa carries a terrible secret.  On the very day she is crowned Queen of Arendelle, the icy beauty inadvertently reveals to her subjects that she possesses a strange and frightening power:  She can project freezing blasts of sub-zero cold frigid enough to lock her entire kingdom in a never-ending winter.  Fleeing into a self-imposed exile, Elsa casts off the restrictions of her past and finally embraces the wild and liberating power that she has so long denied.  All hail the Snow Queen! 

This character-authentic polystone mini-bust is designed by Patrick Romandy-Simmons and sculpted by Jacqueline Perreault.  Standing 7 ¼” tall, Elsa comes painted and ready to display.

Both Anna and Elsa are an Open Edition release, scheduled for October, 2014.  Both retail for $70.00 US each.

Grand Jester Studios' Disney Busts dynamically capture all the grandeur and power of the Walt Disney Studios' noblest heroes, loveliest heroines and vilest villains in a character-authentic collection of highly detailed and hand-painted polystone busts. 

Through dramatic poses and film-inspired design, these expressive portrayals recreate the unique mannerisms and individuality of favorite animated and live-action characters.

Hey Duckman,thanks for the info as usual! Is the Open Edition part from a press release/directly from Grand Jester/Enesco? I'm hoping so! That would make obtaining these a lot easier. Thanks!

Sorry, but what is an "Open Edition" ?
These 2 busts are supposed to be released with 4 other busts (the beast, bell, jasmine and Tigger), so as usual if I am not wrong? :)

Rupyscreations said...

Oh, I finally understood ^^ You mean these 2 busts will not be limited to 3,000 items? If so, I am really surprised, this is the first time for a Grand Jester Studios bust. According to me, it's a bad idea, the quality will not be the same :-(

Hi fetchdreams71 - Yes, a direct press release from Enesco states both sculpts are Open Edition, scheduled for an Oct. 2014 release.

I had this confirmed today by Enesco. Hope this helps.

Hi Rupyscreation - I didn't see the press release for Beast, Belle, Jasmine & Tigger but understand they're scheduled for release around the same time frame (Fall 2014).

Not sure why the quality would differ simply because an Open Edition vs. Limited Edition release? The integrity of a sculpt is not determined by how it is released.

Well, honestly, I noticed some changes into the quality of the last busts (hair, fingers, paint...). So if the collection is not limited anymore and if they produced a bigger quantity of each bust, I am afraid it will not get better.
I am a fan of this collection and have all of them, that's why I am so worried ;-)

I'm sorry, I don't collect the busts. I've only seen one grouping in person at an event in March 2013 so can't offer an opinion on the quality of them but can surely understand your concern.
