A comment from tanz_fanatika: OT: Tonner doll news from the convention

Highlights: ALICE (FINALLY), Galadriel, Legolas



(No, I would not try to work them into The Secret Life of Dolls, because I've already got too many multiples running around, nor would I replace (heaven forfend) the current Galadriel and Legolas with them. I just want a Tonner Galadriel of my very, very own to satisfy my general Galadriel obsession.)




Tonner had planned on doing all 5 of the Cullen Teens, but they are having some issues with the actor that played Emmett. So if he will get made is unclear.

Would "LAWL" be too undignified/netspeaky a comment here? Because LAWL. I really don't actually want one, but... if you don't have one, you can't have Dude Bro Growing-Up-Cullen Tonner Emmett, and that would be a shame. Maybe I can find a cheap NECA figure at some point.

Interesting how no one's too fussed about making a Rosalie. I actually think she'd look better as a doll than the actress does, since you wouldn't have the "trying to cover up dark hair and olive skin with pancake makeup and a blonde wig" issue.

There are no plans as of yet to make Carlisle or Esme, and would only be made if they start getting lots of demands for them.

I think the only reason I wouldn't want either of them is that I just don't see their dolls turning out well. I get enough of the Uncanny Valley effect seeing the real people onscreen in their Ill-Advised Vampire Makeup. And, let's face it: male dolls are always problematic. They just almost never turn out right. That said, I've always kind of had a soft spot for the Carlisle character. I think Galadriel would like him. The problem with Esme, of course, is that she never gets to do anything.

They said that Alice is done and will be made on a small busted regular Tyler body with a different outfit then they had originally planned.

Well, no kidding. They're probably going to have to put her in an Eclipse outfit now, they've taken so long. At least it's not a New Moon outfit, and some enterprising crafter will probably put together the grey dress from the first movie THAT MY SOUL CRAVES.

A new Bella will also be released soon, and she has a new face sculpt. She too will be on a small busted Tyler body.

Okay. This is a problem. Look, I didn't want to say this, but I am a year behind on working her into the story. Tonner Bella #1 is precious. She is darling. No, she doesn't look much like Kristen Stewart, but I luff her. Also, Tonner Bella #1 has got it goin' on, so if Tonner Bella #2 has a different, smaller body mold, we are going to have problems getting new/future outfits to fit, and I am NOT using two Tonner Bellas in the story, and I am NOT forsaking #1, because I LOVE HER. Do you want to see a picture of her on the premises? Because I have one that I took last March. DARLING.

Jasper is completed, so we should be hearing about him very soon. There was some disagreement over his hair, so they had to rework it.


... I'd buy it. If you gave it--and I cannot believe I am saying this, but this is how bad the Hair Situation has gotten--if you gave it the hair from the first movie, I'd buy it.

Oh my God. I can't even bring myself to think about how much money this is. How much money this is that I don't have. HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU SPEND NON-ESSENTIAL ENTERTAINMENT HOBBY OF YOUR CHOICE? GAMERS, I'M LOOKING AT YOU.

omg don't judge me

brb, must work faster.
