So of course when I navigated my way over to eBay today, I plugged “Alice in Wonderland” into the search instead of my usual set of phrases. I figured I’d find a cool animation cel from the animated Disney classic. Instead I found this… thing. I don’t know what it is. Sculpture? Toy? Material awesome? All of those things I suspect. The worst part about writing this column every day (okay okay… most days) is that half the time — more than half the time even — I’m finding stuff that I desperately want to dig into the savings for. Not that I have. Or will.
Yeah, it’s a sculpture. An official Walt Disney Collector Classics sculpture to be precise. It’s a beautiful piece, measuring just over a foot-and-a-half in height. It also comes packaged in a collector’s box and includes a certificate of authenticity. Cool, right?
There’s just one hitch. The sculpture will set you back (a Buy It Now auction) $999. Plus shipping. Rough. I’m afraid I’ll have to skip this one. C’est la vie. I’ll just have to comfort myself by watching the trailer again.
