The Tonner Toy Fair preview is up

And it is here. Keep in mind that this isn't the entire spring line, but still, I was hoping to see an Eowyn; no luck. And no preview of the Marvel character figures, either. Instead, what we got was... well.

The Vampire Diaries: Tonner Ian Somerhalder. This is a thing that's happening.





Harry Potter: Baby 12" Hermione! Actually, it does kind of look like her in the first movie or so, IMO. Well, the face needs to be thinner and chinnier to look like Emma Watson (this is a problem all her likenesses have had), but the hair's pretty accurate.

Alice in Wonderland: Aw! There are three new Alices, including the one in the awesome coat and rickrack skirt! And they're all different heights! That is pretty awesome. And... a "Futterwacken" Hatter, which is... less so.



   



Clash of the Titans: THEY MADE AN IO WITH A MUPPET CLOAK. YOU GUYS. DO YOU KNOW HOW AWESOME THIS IS TO ME. I'm not saying I have the space or money for it; I'm just saying that it makes me happy.

Prince of Persia: Yes, that is supposedly the same actress as the Io likeness (to be fair, we're not seeing them from the same angle). I don't even know how to begin to talk about the "painting Gemma Arterton brown" business.

Disney Princesses: Rapunzel, "pending licensor approval." Yeah... unless it looks a lot better from the side, they need to send that sculpt back to the drawing board.

And a ton of fashion dolls, of course, but I consider them less Relevant to My Interests. I'm not seeing anything in this update that is going to affect Secret Life, either--and speaking of which, we may have another delay on a new update. I've been sick again this week, some kind of weird stomach problem that's made it hard to eat, which in turn has left me pretty weak. So I'm doing the best I can, but things are going slowly.

Hope you feel better very soon, Cleo.

The Ian Somerhalder is SLAYING me.

Man... I'm really hoping they come out with a Lost line. And then I can buy Juliet and pet her hair. And then buy Sawyer and bonk their mouths together and make kissy noises.

Maturity - I have it in spades.

That is an excellent idea, and I would do the exact same thing. It still burns me how Sawyer and Juliet ended up on the show.

I am kind of falling in love with the Alice in the coat, yeah.

The sculpt of Damon in that stock picture legitimately terrifies me. O_o BUT - to be fair - there are other male Tonners I have said this about, and when actually realized, they turn out awesome. So it could be a flaw in the prototype picture I would hope. His outfit is a little too boring, but that may just be because the only way Vampire Diaries dolls would make me squee and flail and want them badly is if they were in their Civil War era costumes. :c

One that terrifies me and will never be anything but made of nightmares is the Hatter. Oh god. *hides* I LOVE all of Alice's different dresses, though.

Every single version of Rapunzel that I've seen is hideous, I'm sorry. D: Have you seen the ones the Disney Store has made? BLEH. Her animation looks so cute, what are they thinking with these things?

I hope you feel better and get some strength back soon, Cleo. <333

Well, and it's also true that Tonners just do not photograph well. You have to see them in their full three-dimensional glory sometimes. I actually think the Damon might look pretty good in person. It's like--you start to be able to tell whether a Tonner face is just totally off or it's the picture. The Io/Gemma Arterton looks like it might look pretty good in person as well, for example.

Well, I guess there is a lot more coming out in February so maybe that's when Eowyn and the Marvel dolls might be unveiled. I hope so, anyway.

Re: Alice in Wonderland

Is there anyone in the world that is going to pay $374.99 for Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum?

Re: Alice in Wonderland

I had this same thought.

I laughed out loud when I opened that lj-cut.

My first thought when I saw that Damon was that someone had screwed up their vampire series and gave him a Vamp!Face from the Buffy/Angel Universe.

You just absolutely hit what was bothering me so much about his brow. That is precisely it.

Hermione's head is disturbingly square. It freaks me out.

I looooooove the Alice dolls though. The costumes are gorgeous and she actually looks kind of right.

Feel better soon!

Rapunzel: Meh. Shouldn't it be easier to make a doll based on an animated character?

It must be, since there are already (much more affordable) dolls that look more accurate.

Near as I can figure, Jessica's there because Disney owns Touchstone. I mean, Touchstone Pictures (or whatever they may call themselves these days . . .) is the Disney property started for their more adult/grownup movies.

I'm hoping that she's just suffering from ugly-prototype syndrome, though, because I would have assumed a Jessica Rabbit doll would be much cuter. :/

Eowyn as Dernhelm. Is that so very much to ask? No, I do not think so!

Rapunzel's cute, (though the face is... weird) but I'm jarred by the inaccuracy of her costume. Why are the colors so off? Bleh.

Also, she doesn't have her signature-gravity-defying hair part, but what can you do.

I like the freckles, though.

(And the wig gives me hope that they'll be making a short hair version! PLZ TONNER.)


Feel better soon!

Oh dear. The Damon doll kind of scares me... and I think I want it.

More Alices!! Squee!! (I think I'm finally wanting the 'original' they put out ages ago. As if I need another Alice doll. But hey! She can play with Re-Imagination Alyce! I need help, sigh.)

That Hermione looks freakishly like Emma, only the face is... off. But soo cute.

Rapunzel: No. Just... No.


Feel better!

How can so much of that stuff already be sold out, if they only just now released it??? Does it really sell that fast?

That Rapunzel doll... has a way to go. I can see what they're going for, though, in trying to get the CGI look in the doll.

Pictures of the Disney Store Exclusive Rapunzel Doll already leaked and she looks more mature and well-detailed.

Actually that Fudderwacken Hatter looks like the real thing! I love that they did the Alices in different sizes. Fun!

Oh, it looks accurate. I was just thinking of how many people said they hated that scene.

I am falling in love with the Alice in the blue coat, though.

Does this mean we can start calling her Io the Bruce?

(Deleted comment)
It looks like they gave Rapunzel "anime face," which kind of freaks me out on a doll, honestly. It's the disproportionate, staring eyes that do it, I think. And oh, can we talk hair? I scrolled down to look at the Harry and Ron dolls and just about died giggling. Harry has a bit of "Alice" hair going on, and Ron...there are no words for the 60's house-wife 'do they've stuck on him. Good times. ^_^

Anyway, I hope you feel better soon.

While I'm thinking of it, does anyone else think the 15" Belle looks like Jessica Alba?

(Deleted comment)
Ahhh, they're really doing Rapunzal! I am so excited that they actually gave her freckles and flat feet! But the rest of the face....

[Man, Belle is beautiful but I was so disappointed when I found out she had high-heel feet. She even comes with flat shoes that had to be specially molded to go on high heel feet. Wth tonner. And her hair is also kind of bizarre...]

The Alice mold is ok, but oh my goodness is the rick rack dress beautiful! Where did you find a picture of it? Her tea party crasher outfit is also cute...

I forgot to link to that--for some reason, pictures of the dress underneath are only on Tonner Direct.

I'd...kind of like to see end-of-the-movie Rapunzel, but I'm probably the only one.

(Deleted comment)
I WANT ALL THOSE ALICES FOREVER.

Seriously, when I was little my mother called me her little Alice (and by adding The Blue Dress to my then-blonde hair and then-blue eyes... yeah). The first Proper Doll that I received as a Big Girl was an Alice doll(Madame Alexander, fyi). This obsession continues to this day FOR BOTH OF US (when I graduated college, I made my mother an Alice quilt of my own design with a ridiculous number of ow-my-hands appliques...).

And OH MAN did I love the clothes in the new 'Alice'. The story, meh, but THE CLOTHES.

...I bet I could sew a GrownUp version of the rickrack outfit...
