More statues of Barks characters

Posted by Arthur in Carl Barks, Characters, Merchandise

A while ago I posted pictures of four of the six new statues by Dark Horse of Disney characters based on the art of Carl Barks. The first one of Uncle Scrooge has now come out and the other five will be released in the coming months.

I received my copy of Scrooge a couple of weeks ago and it is indeed beautiful. The Syroco-style small statues come in a special tin with pin and booklet. Each statue is limited to 950 numbered pieces.

The latest two statues in the series will be of Gladstone Gander (release date December 16th) and Beagle Boy 176-761 (February 3rd):

Results of favorite character survey

Posted by Arthur in Characters

In last week’s giveaway I asked people to give their favorite Disney comics character. There were nearly 150 answers, so this was just a small survey, but it’s still fun to see what the results were. The most popular character was Donald Duck, with his rich Uncle Scrooge in second place:

Donald Duck 16%
Scrooge McDuck   13%
Goofy 11%
Buzz Lightyear 9%
Mickey Mouse 8%
Pluto 7%
Chip and Dale 6%
Woody 4%

It’s also interesting to note that 59% were ‘standard’ characters like Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse, 21% of entries were Pixar characters, while 11% were from classic Disney features like Alice and Princess Jasmine.
