    Re: Poll: Free gift...love it or hate it?

    I voted "Yes, but could've been better/expected better.." But if I'd voted on the day I received, I'd've voted "No, but I will live with it." Time heals all wounds…and expections, I suppose.

    Lithograph of Mickey painting a smile on the world.

    It's okay; if the lithograph would've been a little more obvious that he was putting a smiley face on the earth by having the eyes done already and not just a big bent curve on it, I'd probably like it a LOT more. Not that bad of a gift regardless I suppose.

    Don't ask me, I'm just a Disney fan who's still trying to figure out what Stitch has to do with Peace Among the World's Children and what Mary Poppins dancing hip hop has to do with Main Street, USA -- I've got zero clue what Mickey painting a smile on a globe has to do with Disney Fandom.

    Re: Poll: Free gift...love it or hate it?

    I like the lithograph, but really did expect something more. In a d23 conference call recording, Stephen (or whatever his name...the father of d23) said it was something any disney lover would love to display around the house, and right away, i figured it would be a figurine. Obviously, a figurine would be 100x cooler than a lithograph...even if it were just a figurine of mickey painting a smile on the earth.

    But I guess that would've been too good to be true. I like the lithograph and if I had room around my house to display it, I would...but I don't live in a museum and that just has to go in my miniature home disney archive...

    Lithograph? That's IT? You get those with DVDs. I'd be disappointed for sure. Glad I'm not.

    Clarification: a 20" by 30" lithograph. Not something small that you get with a DVD, but something poster size printed on high quality paper (and according to them, with high quality, fade resistant inks).

    So glad I didn't join! Sounds like a rip off to me.

    For me, the disappointment lies in the fact that the lithograph was of a fairly recent marketing illustration. Plus the red line looks more like a gash than a smile.

    I would have appreciated the lithograph more if it had some sort of historical significance. A litho of one of the original maps of Disneyland, some early sketches of characters, or something that's been rarely seen outside of the archives. Something that goes beyond advertising images.

    totally what I was thinking too. this club was "made for you and me". Well... who actually wants framed Mickey art? I wouldn't be opposed to it but I want something that resonates. I'd take Walt's favorite Mickey portrait over something made LAST YEAR.

    When they say "high end collectible from our archives" what do you think? I'm sure 2008 definitely wasn't on your radar. It's not even IN the archive yet. Shiiet.

    When they say that, I think something more along the lines of something involving Steamboat Willie, Walt, Oswald, or just Mickey. But something older and more classic. Hell, maybe even something involving the Alice Comedies since that (I think) was the first thing the Walt Disney Company made, and it came out in '23.

    I love the litho (I mean, it features Mickey!) but I would have preferred something with Walt and Mickey and maybe a little more vintage-looking.
