Tumble Down The 'Alice In Wonderland' Rabbit Hole With Today's eBay Prop-Watch

Alice in WonderlandWhat can I say? I have "Alice in Wonderland" on the brain today. Can you blame me? The debut trailer for Tim Burton's March 2010 take on Lewis Carroll's story all sorts of great.

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.
