I DO NOT LIKE THE ALICE

I DO NOT LIKE THE OUTFIT

ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT THE WORST ONE IN NEW MOON

THE ONE THAT LOOKED LIKE THE PAINTER'S SMOCK

IN VOLTERRA

MAYBE THE NEXT PROTOTYPE PICTURE WILL BE BETTER

MAYBE I CAN MESS THE HAIR UP


(ETA: Okay, look, people. "I can mess the hair up" means I will be buying it anyway, because I love Alice. If I am really sincerely angry about something, I will not express that in capslock. Capslock is for exaggerating and playing things up. It's not one of the outfits I did like, but I can live with it. I suspect they will fix the hair to be more flipped out and quietly change the picture on the site. It's a cute doll as it is, but it's frustrating, in a not-that-it-really-matters way, to see them get the Galadriel so right and then mess up something as key as the hair--a major Alice feature--on this one and give it one of the less-interesting outfits. People asked me to report my initial gut reaction when I saw it. So I did. But it's okay.)


A quick rundown:

Twilight: Oh God, the new Bella likeness is... no. (I will totally buy the outfit if someone sells it separately.) We're holding steady with the Edward likeness, although the gaze is SUPER INTENSE. Nice suit, though.

Lord of the Rings: Besides the Galadriel, there's a Legolas, but no pictures yet. I still crave the Arwen, even though the dress isn't entirely movie-accurate, because it is pretty.

Firefly: You can see the Inara, but it is sold out. I think they said they'd be doing a different one later.

Prince of Persia: As previously revealed. I would totally go for the Tamina if it was the full princess/priestess outfit with all the veils.

Jonah Hex: Really? Really?

Well shoot, I'm sorry that Alice looks like that. :(

New Moon Edward's hair is trying to escape from his head. That is the only way I can explain that.

The Fangirl Warning System in his hair is on high alert.

The fact that Gemma Arterton is now a doll makes me laugh whenever someone brings it up.

I DEMAND A TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES LINE COMPLETE WITH EDDIE REDMAYNE. ALSO, ALEC, SO I CAN SET HIM ON FIRE.

om nom eddie redmayne om nom.

That Galadriel doll is gorgeous. I don't even really collect dolls (although I do have a LOT of LOTR action figures and the Toy Biz Galadriel still in her box on top of my bookshelf), but I want that doll. The sculpt looks so much like Cate Blanchett it is SCARY.

Alice's hair looks silly but I didn't think the outfit was terrible... she does look better in dresses, though. It's too bad they didn't do the dress from the first film, that one was super cute.

THAT IS THE DRESS THAT I WANTED.

I was hoping they'd just skip to one of the Eclipse outfits, because I saw one that wasn't too terrible. Or even the outfit she's wearing at the beginning of the movie in school! Although that was kind of smocky.

I didn't like this outfit, but still: it's not the worst one.

I'm going to be saving my pennies to buy Galadriel as a birthday present to myself. I have five months. DO NOT SELL OUT! AUGH!

I have no interest in Jonah Hex whatsoever, but I find myself strangely drawn to the Megan Fox dolls. It must be the outfits. Me likey.

I think licensing Megan Fox is the reason they went for it. They did Get Smart because Robert Tonner wanted to do an Ann Hathaway doll.

Alice is, well, maybe it will get better.
The Mal doll from Firefly is strange, but Galadriel is beautiful.

I think that Mal looks more like the good Dr. Simon Tam.

The Alice is a disappointment. I really wish they didn't do her hair like that. BUT OMG! GALADRIEL IS EVERYTHING I HOPED SHE WOULD BE.



Oh.My. That Galadriel is epic perfection!!

I cannot WAIT to see Legolas!!

So sad about Alice =\

The Arwen doll is way closer to the movie Arwen than the website pictures would lead you to believe. If I had the money I would buy both Arwen and Galadriel.

The upcoming Barbie Alice is much cuter. God it hurt to type that.

Wow, you're right! And considering how bad Barbie Edward looks, that's saying something.

This is how the world ends.

Starting in Birmingham.

OH MY GOD.

Eddie's hair needs it's own zip code. WTH IS UP WITH THAT?? (or to the side with that hair)?

Galadriel is SOOOO PRETTY.

"She reminds me of the Chicago dolls from years ago!"

i think that is the point....she reminds you of CHICAGO not TWILIGHT

also alice's hair is way more "flippy" thank this girls boring bob. also alice is perky and peppy and the clothes from new moon on her were drab and schoolmarm-ish

The real life dolls usually look much better than the prototype pictures, so the Alice could end up looking much better than that. I would restyle the hair, though.


Yeah. They also go through really quiet changes from the prototype to the final product; I keep Watch That Page on dolls I'm interested in, so I've seen them very quietly change the pictures out. The difference between the first Edward and the one they eventually sold was drastic.
