Beginning today, the D23 Expo will host throngs of Disney's adoring fans in Anaheim, California. The show features a little bit of everything from the Disney lineage and it is all represented in the form of some sweet D23-Exclusives! Much like the coveted SDCC-only toys and collectibles, these D23 Expo pieces are sure to burn up the ebay charts...and a hole in the pocket for those of us who unfortunately missed the show. For instance, there are only 50 each of the Kingdom Hearts Mickey and Sora statues-- 50! Now THAT's a low production run! Here's all the info on the D23 experience, along with some photos of the many, many exclusives to be found around the show.
