Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone and anvil is rightwise king born of England.
This set is based upon the 1963 American film produced by Walt Disney and released by Buena Vista. It shows the moment before Wart (Future King Arthur) pulls the sword from the stone under the watchful eye of Archimedes. I also put Lady Squirrel in there, as I believe she would have followed Arthur to keep an eye on him.
The set around 350 pieces, is built on a 16x16 plate and comes with 2 mini figures Arthur and Merlin. Merlin is not really a part of this scene in the movie, so I decided to build a display stand that includes the bottomless bag Merlin packs his house up in, along with another sword in the stone. Arthur and Archimedes also have their own place on the stand.
The blue and gold around the base represent King Arthur's coat of arms, and the shields are actually pretty close to the actual coat of arms. There would be 3 stickers or printed prices in this set. The two on the front and one in the back that say "The Sword in the Stone"
I hope you enjoy this set as much as I did designing it. Many nights and weekends were spent building this with my kids. I have tried to make it interesting to look at from all 4 sides, and in my opinion would be a fantastic display piece, especially to any Disney fanatic.
