Regular readers can’t have failed to notice that I love animation, and certainly have a special place in my heart for the Disney classics.
Disney are very good at keeping that legacy fresh, right down to keeping their characters in the public eye. A role in a Disney animated feature, and you’ll be well-known for decades.
So there are those famous Princesses, of course, but on the other side of the coin, there’s also the villains. My favourites, to be honest.
A new line of collector’s figures have realised the leading Disney baddies in 3D, mint-in-the-box form. The Disney Designer Villains collection is for sale exclusively via the Disney Store.
But if you’re lucky, you might win a set of all six from us here at Bleeding Cool.
It’s a nifty prize, and not just because each of the six villains in the set is worth £50, but also because each was produced in a limited run.
The dolls are being released, one per week, via The UK Disney Store and also in the US. An even more limited amount of full sets, guaranteeing the total collection, has also been made available.
Here are the full geek-out specs to get collectors drooling:
-Set of six detailed character dolls
-Cruella De Vil, Evil Queen, Maleficent, Mother Gothel, Queen of -Hearts and Ursula
-Luxurious outfits with superb film detailing
-Each comes in a tough plastic display box
-Each includes a certificate of authenticity
-Each doll measures H30 x W12cm approx
-Display box measures H38.5 x W17.5 x D18cm approx
-Suitable for children aged 6 years+
-Exclusive to Disney Store
