Very Rare Kenny Thompkins Sculture Up for Auction November 23, 2010Posted by John D. Moore in Merchandise, Series Production.
An eBay seller has posted what may very well be the only item like it in existence. It’s a Darkwing Duck maquette that the seller claims was actually a production sculpture, modeled by Kenny Thompkins (a character designer that worked on the show) himself. It is perhaps one of the most on-model 3D renderings of Darkwing Duck I’ve yet seen.
Quoth auctioneer resortareahomes:
This unique sculpture created personally by Darkwing’s character designer, Kenny Thompkins, comes from the 1991 Disney Production of Darkwing Duck, the TV series. It’s a personalized sculpture from Kenny Thompkins (Darkwing Duck character designer) to Cecil Broughton (Darkwing Duck supervising sound editor). Dedicated to “Cecil” from Kenny Thompkins and dated 9/30/1991. An original notarized CERTIFICATE of AUTHENTICITY from Cecil Broughton is INCLUDED as part of this RARE OPPORTUNITY in the ANIMATION ART auction world.
Starting with a bid of $499.99, this would be a great addition to any Darkwing Duck fan or animation art collector with relatively deep pockets. Check out the auction!
