Symphony Hour Donald Duck Disney Store Display

   The Disney "Symphony Hour" store display featured Conductor Mickey, Clarabelle on the Violin, Goofy on the Bassoon and of course Donald on the Drums. The "Symphony Hour" Disney Store display is the rarest of all of the releases created exclusively for in-store display only. Donald on the Drums is the most sought after character in this extremely rare series. This statue measures 21 inches in height by 20 inches in width. The fact that this piece remained intact for all of these years given it's impressive size and number of small breakable details is amazing. We are extremely lucky to have come across this highly collectible piece, we have never seen another.

Disney Adventurer Action Figures

      The "Disney Adventurers" line of action figures was created in 1999 and available exclusively in Disney Stores. The series consisted of 5 renown male characters that were made in 3 varying sizes - 11" boxed sets, 7" blister packs and 2" boxed sets. The "Disney Adventurers" line prevails to be one of the only lines that focuses specifically on male Disney characters. Each character has full articulation and includes a bundle of accessories. We are showcasing 4 of the 11" boxed sets; we were not able to acquire Captain Hook, the only villain released in the all male series.

     Hercules is portrayed as a courageous warrior from ancient times. The logo on the front of his packaging is an impression of a sword. He comes with a his lightning bolt sword, a smaller sword and a shield.  Hercules is a personal favorite of ours, his accessories as well as the figure itself are both perfectly sculpted.

     Tarzan has a spear, a knife and a swinging vine accessory. The logo on Tarzan's case features the arrowhead from his spear. This is the most well done Tarzan figure that we have come across to date. The expression on the face of this particular figure is true to the film and portrays his character extremely well even at a glance.

      Peter Pan comes with a bow and arrow, knife, sword and axe. Pan's packaging is unique from the others, it does not have a logo on the front window of the box. His detailed accessories are exactly what you would find in the Lost Boys camp itself. The sculpt of Peter Pan himself is also very well done.

       Aladdin is complete with his magical genie's lamp, a sword and a large sabre. The logo on the front of his box is an impression of the genie's lamp. These figures are now only available on the secondary market. We hope to update soon showcasing Captain Hook, the final release in the series.
