  • new five-foot Mickey figure in Disneyana

    Anyone who's been in Disneyana will have seen the five-foot Mickey with his hand outstretched to greet all visitors. Here's a picture of him: http://www.colddeadfish.net/images/DLR/5ftmickey.jpg. Those have been selling for a number of years now, with an edition size of 100. Since they've now all sold out, the next figure in the collection has been released, and it's Bandleader Mickey. Here's a picture of him: http://www.colddeadfish.net/images/DLR/5ftblmickey1.jpg. The edition size for Bandleader Mickey is 50 with a price of $11,000. (Yes, CM and AP discounts do apply.) Shipping costs about $300, and the product is shipped directly from the manufacturer.

    Bandleader Mickey arrived earlier this weekend. He'll be gone for about a week or so as he gets a base attached to him, and then he'll return. He also comes with a baton and a feather for his hat, but since they are easily damaged, they are not put out on display, but if you ask a cast member, they can take them out so you can see the completed figure. Here's a picture of him with his baton and feather: http://www.colddeadfish.net/images/DLR/5ftblmickey2.jpg.

    He's a really spectacular figure. Wouldn't it be great to have a house big enough so that when you enter, Bandleader Mickey greets you in the foyer?

            They were swappin' them out as we were walking thru on Fri. The CMs working were taking pictures and getting all teary eyed.

                      OMG! That Mickey statue has been on display since I can remember! My mother has wanted to purchase that particular statue for a good 10-15 years now. So that statue has been there a loooong time if memory serves me correctly.

                        I think that most of us have taken a picture either shaking it's hand of giving it a high five. What are we supposed to do w/ the new one, put on a community production of The Music man?

                          Yikes!!!

                          As others have said, we have seen that statue in the Disneyana store for years and just thought it was a display figure. As mucg stuff that we have purchased there, we never thought to ask about buying it (not that we WOULD...).

                          I guess we'll have to apologize to the buyer of it for any scuffs on the base of it from where our kids have climbed up on it to take a picture with him. Our youngest has at least three or four yearly pictures showing how she has grown each year with Mickey as a reference.

                          I guess we shouldn't continue that tradition with the new statue, huh??? LOL

                            Actually, the one that's been there is really just a floor model of sorts, like a proof. Same will be true for the Bandleader Mickey one. As I mentioned, anyone who purchases a figure gets it shipped directly from the manufacturer. You can see that the regular figure is pretty scuffed, as is the base he sits on. The Bandleader will get the same wear and tear, I expect.

                            Believe me, if they didn't want people climbing on it, they wouldn't have it out like that.

                              Wow, I didn't know this! I saw the "old" large fig mickey, and just saw the new bandleader mickey this past Thursday. I really thought they were for decoration, but I can see where this would appeal to the right collector!
