BURBANK, Calif. — (July 10, 2009) -– eFX Inc. will explore the mysteries of the deep, and of Walt Disney’s haunting interpretation of Capt. Nemo’s Nautilus, when it unveils its highly accurate, detailed collectible model of this iconic submarine from Disney’s renowned adaptation of Jules Verne’s epic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
The Nautilus is among the upcoming limited-edition collectibles from eFX that will preview at San Diego Comic-Con this July, and at the first-ever D23 Expo, Sept. 10-13 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Here I was thinking I was being the coy and clever one when all along, it turns out that Thomas Kinkade’s newest entry into the Disney Dreams collection has already made its debut on the net. A couple (and I stress a couple) of art dealers offering Kinkade’s work have published the latest entry which you’ll find pictured below, titled Tinker Bell & Peter Pan Fly to Neverland.
Note: We have since published an image of the new Thomas Kinkade painting titled ‘Tinker Bell and Peter Pan Fly to Neverland.’ You can see it here.
On his blog, Thomas Kinkade (dubbed ‘The Painter of Light’) offered the first hint at the subject of his next entry in the Disney Dreams Collection series. The collection re-creates magic moments in Disney classic films and consists of two entries so far: Snow White Discovers the Cottage and Pinocchio Wishes Upon A Star. Kinkade has also produced paintings of the castles at both the Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts.
