Walt Disney Classic Collection
By Justin Smith
Today marks the anniversary of my birth, or as most
would call it, my birthday. It'll involve cake, ice cream, and some
celebratory beverages. I don't expect many presents for my birthday,
but one thing I do expect is a new addition to my Walt Disney
For those of you who are not in the know, Walt
Disney Classic Collection are a series of sculptures of Disney
characters, modeled straight from Disney itself. They come in a
fancy green box.
As well as a model sheet of the character.
As well as a little book that is more of an ad for
the other WDCCs than anything else.
The first sculpture I got was Pluto which I received
for my 18th birthday from my parents. Since Pluto isn't one of my
all-time favorite Disney, my unfamiliarity with the line and because
I was secretly hoping for something else I wasn't overly excited for
it initially. But it has since grown on me, and I am now a huge fan
of the line and a mini-collector of sorts, as I have always gotten a
new addition for my birthday/graduation/special occasion etc.
I admit, I don't have as many as others, but so far
I have Pluto, Goofy, Dumbo, Timothy Q. Mouse, and two versions of
Jiminy Cricket (one before his transformation as Pinocchio's
conscience and one as Pinocchio's conscience. I'll have to wait
until later today to find out who I'll be adding to my collection.
They're limited, so they don't come cheap, but
they're very well made and well-packaged that they are worth
considering collecting for any serious Disney fan.
