Here’s an interesting bit of California Disneyland Mansion lore. Around the summer of 1974, someone with a firearm within the park fired off multiple rounds. Two confirmed gunshots struck both the ballroom wall in the Haunted Mansion, and a snowflake on Adventure Thru Inner Space. A third hole was found in the Primeval World diorama on the train. Later investigation by Anaheim Police determined the holes to be .22 caliber with bullet fragments matching between the holes.
This left Disney with a problem. The panes of glass at the Ballroom scene are so large, the roof of the building would have had to be removed (i.e. destroyed) to replace them. Disney’s solution was to cover up the hole in the glass by disguising it as a spider web and place a fake spider right over the hole. So next time you ride the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland, when you leave the ballroom scene just before entering Madame Leota’s room, look for a spider and web on the last pane of glass in front of you.
Just a correction, the Madame Leota scene is BEFORE the ballroom, so I believe it should be “just before entering the Attic scene.” Although I believe the bullethole/spiderweb is about 3/4’s of the way down, and not right at the very end.of the ballroom scene.
Basic and DDG have the same mold. Ghouls Alive is based on her but different since she has electronics in her head so I wouldn’t even compare her. You should be comparing your GNO or Picture Day Spectra with the basic or DDG. The only real change is her cheekbones have been softened and aren’t as severe. (Power Ghoul also has the 2nd mold.)
Maybe just cause its late, but I can’t tell the difference in the face shape (except for maybe in the HTC one), I do see the top lip being a different shape (the lips smaller overall), and her eyebrows are thinner on the GA one (thats a basic Spectra on the right). I quite like GAs face in spite of these things, and feel it was a good buy, all in all.
