Thanks for the observation GhostHost, I missed that. Yeah, once in a while the parks have WDCC piece and call it a special event. I was wondering why they didn't do something special for the flame. Quite often on Big Figs they will add glitter, motion, or lighting. If they did an Olympic Goofy Big Fig, it would be quite likely that the torch would have a light for the flame, with a clear plastic "flame"
Walt Disney Classics Collections, (WDCC) are basically Ceramic figurines, they might add various metal, such as pewter in order to be able to make more highly detailed figurines, or sometime they will add gold to color certain parts of the piece.
