I have here a WDCC Disney Classics - Fantasia - Sorcerer Mickey Mouse, Yen Sid, & Brooms - Magical Maelstrom Sculpture which I got for free by redeeming over 10,000 points on my Disney Movie Rewards account. It is limited to just 1,000 produced and it retails for almost $2,000 and goes on ebay anywhere for $600 to $1,000+ give or take. I just got it in the mail today and the box weighed in at 35 pounds. I decided to take a few pictures of it to share with all of you guys. Enjoy!
Here is a bit more information on it I found online...
Fantasia Sorcerer Mickey Yen Sid Brooms Magical Maelstrom
Artist: Ruben Procopio.
Sizes: height Mickey & Brooms: 10-3/4", Plus Base 11-3/4" height Yen-Sid: 10"
Sold as a set.
Each of the brooms was individually sculpted (and not replicated in production) and the sculpture shows an animation progression from this classic film sequence.
If you freeze a moment of the film, you will see all the brooms in unison in the same pose pitching the water from the pails. That's much easier to produce of course since you can replicate the same broom sculpture in different sizes for the sculpture.
n this sculpture however, it was chosen for the first time in WDCC to animate a progression of a film sequence showing the brooms from the moment when they start to pitch the water from the pails to the point where water is pouring all the way out. This tells the animated story of the brooms action sequence. So, each broom is sculpted individually in the progression taking many more days to sculpt and produce),but what one might expect from a Signature Series release!
The Fantasia Signature Series also comes with wooden presentation base (not shown)and a signature card signed by sculptor Ruben Procopio.
Matched Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) set of 1,000.
Fantasia Sorcerer Mickey Yen Sid Brooms Magical Maelstrom, by WDCC Disney Classics is a Limited Edition production. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity which affirms that this is an authentic Limited Edition production from WDCC Disney
