Join this magical celebration with a magnificent gift 100 years in the making—the Mickey Mouse “Leader of the Club” Milestone Statue, designed with platinum panache for D23 Gold Members by artist James Fauntleroy. This icon of the Disney 100 years celebration is available to all new and renewing D23 Gold Members in 2023!*
Mickey Mouse “Leader of the Club” Milestone Statue
Over the past 100 years, The Walt Disney Company has told stories that have defined generations, inspired the world, and introduced all of us to beloved characters that bring out the best parts of ourselves.
Starting with a small cartoon studio in 1923, Walt Disney’s dream has grown into a rich, century-long legacy of the world’s most inspiring stories, places, and fans. A momentous milestone deserves an equally incredible icon, so D23: The Official Disney Fan Club has partnered with artist James Fauntleroy and Gentle Giant Studios to create the Mickey Mouse “Leader of the Club” Milestone Statue to pay tribute to The Walt Disney Company’s rich legacy of unmatched creativity—and inspire the next century of storytellers!
“I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing—that it was all started by a mouse,” Walt Disney once reflected. Designed as a reflection of Disney’s past, present, and future, artist and Grammy®-winning music producer James Fauntleroy brought a “platinum pop star” tribute to Walt’s loveable mouse with a stylish varsity jacket featuring the Disney 100 years logo and flair paying tribute to Mickey’s own fandom for some of Disney’s most incredible stories. An oversized version of the Mickey statue was unveiled at D23 Expo, the celebration’s kick off, and now D23 Gold Members have the opportunity to bring home the magic with this exquisitely crafted 10-inch statue!
