Nemo’s Nautilus, inspired by Disney’s 1954 live-action version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

The Nautilusis priced at $1,799, and payments can be made in four installments. All orders for the Nautilus placed prior to December 31, 2009, will receive an early pre-order price of $1,699.

- An 18-inch-tall “photo puppet” replica of the Muppets’ Rizzo the Rat, complete with letterman’s jacket and baseball cap.
