Original Donald Duck Big Figure

     Disney Big Figs have become some of the most elaborate and widely collected items amongst Disneyana collectors. Disney began manufacturing big figures in the states in 1999, with the first series being the Fab Five. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy each stand ontop of a base that displays the characters' names, which they can be removed from. Selling out quickly at Disneystores, they are now highly sought after by collectors on the secondary market.

     Donald Duck made his first appearance in a Disney Silly Symphonies Cartoon - The Wise Little Hen - in 1934. This original big figure of Donald is a depiction 1934 image, hand painted with a vintage style for full effect. Donald and the base are both made out of resin and the tally on his sailor's hat is velour. The base reads his name with a small gold plaque that says "1934" on the front and the stamp on the bottom of the base says " Limited to the production year of 1999". He is extremely heavy, especially with the base and stands at about 2 ft. in height.
