Vintage Black & White Davy Crockett for D23 Expo

Today is the start of the D23 Expo! We have one more look at a new 3-inch figured that will be introduced at the D23 Expo Dream Store today. The figure was designed by Disney Design Group Artist Casey Jones. It will have an edition size of 1,200 and a retail of $13.95. Below is an image of the packaging for the figure. 

"Since Wave 1 of the Disney Treasures DVD sets, my family has loved Davy Crockett," exclaimed Casey. "[Davy Crockett's] presence is still felt in the Parks, with Disneyland's canoes, the ranch in Paris, and all over Fort Wilderness in Walt Disney World. He was the perfect character for the 9-inch figure I designed for a Vinylmation Park series. This special figure for the D23 Expo is the exclusive black and white variant, which is how most viewers first saw Davy in his broadcast premiere on the "Disneyland" television show, and in the opening day broadcast from Disneyland in 1955!" 

Here a few more images of the 3-inch figure. Similiar to the 9-inch figure, Davy's cap is removable.

9-inch Figure Featuring Bulldog Butch for D23 Expo

One more figure being released at the upcoming D23 Expo. Eric Caszatt has talked about the 9-inch figure he created featuring Butch.


"I've always been a fan of the Pluto shorts, and Butch was one of Pluto's great rivals," explained Eric. "I felt that Butch gave Pluto an opportunity to show more of his personality and show how clever he could be."

The bulldog Butch appeared in 11 cartoons beginning with "Bone Trouble" in 1940. This figure will have an edition size of 750 and a retail of $44.95.

"For the D23 Expo exclusives, the team decided to feature Disney characters you wouldn't normally see on Disney merchandise and didn't necessarily have a place in other Vinylmation series," explained Thomas. "Eric picked Butch, Casey did black and white Davey Crockett and I chose Gladstone Gander. I thought Glandstone would be a fun and lucky addition to your Vinylmation collection. It is a salute the great Carl Barks' duck comics." 

Gladstone made his debut in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories No. 88 in January 1948. He was a cousin of Donald Duck and, as Thomas mentiones, was extremely lucky.
