Photo of the Week: “The Pirates Are Coming!”

"Do I hear six?"
“Do I hear six?”


This is an issue of Disney News which premiered for the opening of “Pirates of the Caribbean”.  Featured is the Auctioneer and Big Blue from “Pirates”, but they look a little different, don’t they?  These are not audio animatronics, but life-size static models, which Walt actually got to see!  Walt was around for this life-size mockup of the entire auction scene.  Where are these full figures today, I wonder?
