Movieland Wax Museum Figures Remain
A recent article in the O.C. Register states that the city actually owns several of the old wax statues and sets from the Movieland Wax Museum. These figures, which include Shirley Temple on the Good Ship Lollipop, were donated to the city when their sales fell through. According to the article, the city was offered around $75,000 for the collection, but turned it down because they would like to incorporate these figures into whatever new development is planned for the site.
This is incredible! I was under the assumption that everything that sold at the auction was paid for, and that private collectors had these figures. Another amazing fact is that they say the figures are still inside the museum! It's rather spooky. Hopefully this whole issue will be resolved and we will be able to view these wonderful pieces of history.
