    OSWALD sightings

    D23 has arrived with fresh new Oswald inclusions on the membership certificate and pins. He is also featured prominently in a new WDCC sculpt by Ruben Procopio, Gen.Limited Edition (NLE)-1,500
    400 of the General Limited Edition will be produced with an exclusive Walt Disney Archives Collection/D23 backstamp. Available only at DisneyShopping.com. They are available also at Disneyana.
    Procopio has some cool photos of the original sketch and unpainted version at his site:

    I recently spotted some Oswald men's t-shirts at the Employee Center at the Walt Disney Studios and purchased the shirt below for a friend's kid at Vault 28


    Lucky Brand Jeans and Disney Introduce Limited Edition T-Shirts Inspired by Oswald the Lucky Rabbit

    Lucky Brand Jeans, America's neighborhood jeans store, and Disney Consumer Products recently announced the rebirth of Walt Disney's first icon, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. The predecessor to Mickey Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit returned to The Walt Disney Company in 2006, long after his original theatrical debut in 1927. Just in time for summer, this limited-edition collection of T-shirts, featuring Oswald and the iconic Mickey Mouse, will be sold only at Lucky Kid, Lucky Brand Jeans stores and online at luckybrandjeans.com. Disney Consumer Products and Lucky Brand Jeans will introduce the expressive Oswald and classic Mickey to a new generation with a sophisticated taste for the best in denim.

    In addition, Lucky Brand Jeans and Disney have come together to create a special Oswald stencil t-shirt which is offered exclusively as part of the limited edition Oswald vinyl figure box set. Fun-loving adults and children alike can add this unique Disney character to their Disney collection. The collectible figures, numbering only 500, are available only at select Lucky Brand Jeans stores.

    "As the forerunner to Mickey Mouse and an important part of Walt Disney's creative legacy, the fun and mischievous Oswald is back with Disney," said Pam Lifford, executive vice president, Global Home and Apparel for Disney Consumer Products. "And what better place for Oswald to make his contemporary comeback than with Lucky Brand Jeans."

    Making Oswald cool again did not happen by accident. Since 2002, Disney has collaborated with the hottest designers to make classic characters like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck fashionable. Disney is now viewed as a major fashion player, consistently ranking on the Women's Wear Daily WWD100 list of the most influential fashion brands. The Oswald-inspired Lucky Brand Jeans t-shirt collection, designed to appeal to trend-forward adults and discerning gift giver, takes inspiration from the rich heritage of stories Walt told through his original animated character.

    When Walt Disney opened his animation studio in 1923, he spent four years producing The Alice Comedies, a popular series of shorts featuring a live girl in a cartoon world. After four years, Walt created a new character – Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Walt produced 26 Oswald cartoons, which were distributed by Universal and well-received by audiences. However, on a trip to New York to renew his contract for Oswald, Walt discovered a clause in his contract that gave Universal ownership of his popular new character. On the train ride back to Hollywood, Walt was devastated but realized he needed to create a new character – one that he would own entirely. And now, Oswald has returned to The Walt Disney Company to take his rightful place alongside the most well known animated characters in the world.

    Anyone else seen Oswald around?

    Re: OSWALD sightings

    Anyone know if the men's shirt is online only? $45 is a bit steep. The girl's shirt is on sale for like $22.50 or something.

    AliasD, I saw the shirts at the Employee Center and I dunno.. they seem really plain. I think I'd wear the LuckyJeans shirt better.

    The price will come down soon enough if they don't sell.

    Agreed, the WDS version is a far simpler graphic than the Lucky Brand art.

    Re: OSWALD sightings

    I decided to splurge on that $45 oswald shirt at Lucky Brand. And you know what? I happen to buy it from the supervisor, and even he went ahead and gave me 40% off! I also bought a pair of jeans that was already 50% off so it was 40% on top of that!

    Let's just say that I'm very pleased with my purchase!
