Disney Showcase 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea 31 Icon Nautilus Submarine
This was one of initial production 100 units, (1954 were eventually to be made), for the Disney Showcase Collection although allegedly only 57 were actually produced. This is unit #91 and sadly the company licensed to make these went out of business. This 20,000 Leagues 31 Icon Nautilus Sub has extreme detail and is in its original display case. One of the most sought-after and hard to find scale reproductions of Captain Nemos incomparable submarine from the 1954 Disney classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Produced in 2000 by the now defunct Icons Authentic Replicas, this highly accurate, painstakingly researched 31 icons Nautilus miniature was engineered by renowned Nautilus expert Scott Brodeen (who also worked on the restoration of the original 11-foot filming miniature). The display plaque reads EDITION NUMBER: 091 (out of a planned 1954). I had heard and read on that according to Scott Brodeen, only 57 copies of the 31 Icons Nautilus were ever produced. The authoritative Disney Sub website notes that the Icons Nautilus was Licensed by Disney but the production run ended early due to failure to negotiate the final Disney license agreement. Icons went out of business shortly thereafter. This miniature has had only one owner (yours truly), and has always been kept in a dust-free display case within a smoke-free & climate controlled environment. Both the miniature and display stand are in MINT CONDITION. The information provided is accurate to the best of my knowledge.
