Disney Parks, Lucasfilm and the Walt Disney Classic have joined forces to create a rebel alliance in order to introduce this brand new ‘Jedi Mickey’ open edition collectible from WDCC. The hand-crafted porcelain piece is 6 1/4″ tall, retails for $125 (plus tax) and includes a certificate of authenticity.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Enesco’s Grand Jester Studios would be introducing a line of sculpture busts based on Disney heroes and villains. Sideshow Collectibles has announced that the next entry in the series, Maleficent from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, will be available come first quarter of 2010 and is now available for pre-order for $80. At a limited edition of 1500, this gorgeous 10.5″ tall sculpture is bound to go faster than you can say dragon!
