  2. “What If American Girl Dolls Were Real People” Will Ruin Your Childhood

    "Golly gee, Samantha, it's always about suffrage with you!"

    I have a preposterous attachment to American Girl dolls, but that doesn't mean I can't still laugh at this amazing video of what they would be like as real people. Consider this punishment for that horrible time when you removed Samantha from the shelves, American Girl. Shame on you.

  3. Guess What? Kids Really Like Lammily, the Realistically Proportioned Doll

    Not to kick Barbie when she's down or anything...

    We were already excited about the Lammily doll that was built from the CDC average proportions of a 19-year-old woman by artist Nickolay Lamm, but seeing it in the hands of second graders who are happy to finally have a doll that represents them is just amazing. Now if we could just get some different skin colors...

  4. Play Dress Up With Adorable Plush Dolls Of The Ladies From Adventure Time

    Oh Mah Glob Guys

    While Lorena Rodríguez has created some unusual creatures of her own, it's her Adventure Time plush dolls which caught our eye. Dressing up Princess Bubblegum would have been right up my alley as a youngster...yes...a youngster, that's it. Marceline and Lumpy Space Princess after the jump!

  5. Do You Want to Look at Amazingly Accurate Painted Dolls of Anna and Elsa From Frozen?

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    OK, so it's not anywhere close to the same meter as "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?," but cut me some slack, OK? DeviantARTist lulemee has also done realistic repaints of other Disney princess dolls—and one Disney villain, The Little Mermaid's Vanessa—which you can see behind the jump.

  6. If Iron Man Was A Monster High Doll. And Also A Woman.

    The proportions on this Monster High version of Iron Man are obviously a bit drastic, but then, so are all Monster High dolls. Chris Hooton (aka Sabretooth) modified a standard retail release to create this Monster High Avenger he dubbed "Iron Girl." Something tells me, if Marvel actually made a merchandising deal with Mattel, these would sell like hot cakes. But for now, click ahead to find out how much this one sold for on Ebay.

  7. Badass Michonne Barbie Is Badass

    Bloody Good Fun

    Peewee Parker on Flickr crafts dozens of fashion dolls of all shades, but this one is perhaps the most dangerous. Check out a another shot of it here. Previously in The Walking Dead

  8. Man Repaints Catching Fire Katniss Barbie So It Looks Exactly Like Jennifer Lawrence

    Real Or Not Real?

    We posted the spectacular Noel Cruz's work before. He has a knack for turning what are terribly disappointing depictions of actors' doll counterparts and creating what could almost be a mirror image. His latest masterpiece? Jennifer Lawerence's Katniss Everdeen. Check out a few more shots and find out how you can own it after the jump.

  9. 10-Year-Old Girl Petitions For American Girl Doll With Wheelchair

    DO WANT

    Melissa Shang is ten years old and she has more American Girl dolls than I ever had (read: none). But she's not satisfied. Shang, who has Muscular Dystrophy, would love for Mattel to create an American Girl doll who uses a wheelchair.

  11. David Bowie Is A Scary Monster. I Mean, A Scary Doll.

    This Exists... Because of A Lady

    Correction. Several scary dolls. E.V. Svetova aka Katyok on DeviantArt, has created amazingly life-like dolls based on the many looks of David Bowie. (Remember those other realistic dolls?) They are absolutely not for sale with one exception. She writes, "Unless you are David Bowie, I cannot make a custom Bowie doll for you. Please, accept my apologies." And in case you were wondering, yes, there is a Jareth version... (via Badass Digest)

  12. Jem’s Holograms Get New Collectible Dolls From Hasbro

    DO WANT

    When we first posted the new collectible Jem dolls from Hasbro and Integrity Toys, many (myself included) wondered when we'd see Shana, Aja, and Kimber. The wait is over, Series 2 features Jem's Holograms in all their bright-haired glory! I am now hotly anticipating Series 3, which I can only guess will be the evil band and Jem adversaries, The Misfits. I wonder what Christy Marx, Jem creator and current DC Comics writer, thinks of the comeback? (via Comics Alliance)

  13. Bane Gets Back-Breaking Poses In His Lifelike TDKR Hot Toys Figure

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    Besides the artist who repaints character dolls, I'd probably say Hot Toys does the best job at replicating an actor's precise looks in doll form. Their Loki, based on Tom Hiddleston's character in The Avengers, still takes the cake for me but their recently revealed Bane from The Dark Knight Rises also does a pretty great job looking like actor Tom Hardy. This is also the first Hot Toys figure I've seen with its shirt off, which is vaguely uncomfortable. You'll see why... (Hot Toys on Facebook via MTV Splash Page)

  14. Man Repaints Harry Potter, Twilight, LOTR Dolls To Spectacularly Realistic Effect

    where does he get those wonderful toys

    Have you ever been really excited to pick up an action figure or collectible doll only to look at the face and go, "meh?" (Except for that Tom Hiddleston/Loki doll, good god.) While the creators of these figures usually spend a lot of time coming up with something that looks similar to the actor who played the part, they've got nothing on Noel Cruz. He painstakingly repaints the faces of some already pricey dolls (Hot Toys, Tonner, etc.) to give them the realistic look we all wanted in the first place. If you like what you see, you can try and commission one from him but prepare yourself - 12 inch dolls start at $1000. He does a lot of pop-culture work but take a look at what he's done with the characters from Harry Potter, Twilight, The Lord of the Rings, and more. (via Jezebel)

  15. Can Jem and the Holograms Make A Truly Outrageous Comeback With New Dolls From Hasbro?

    DO WANT

    Jem, the larger, cooler Barbie. At least to me she was. That's why I'm so excited for this news. Hasbro has made a deal with Integrity Toys for a modern day line of Jem and the Hologram dolls. "Inspired by the TRULY OUTRAGEOUS characters created by Hasbro over two decades ago and cherished by fans and collectors alike ever since, this nostalgic retro doll line is designed to pay homage to both the animated series and its original companion doll line, which was originally marketed from 1985 to 1987," writes Integrity. Each doll will set you back $125 and they'll start shipping next month. Take a look at Jerrica Benton, her alter-ego Jem, Synergy, and good ol' purple-haired Rio (more to come down the road).

  17. There's a Shop in Japan That Will Put Your Face on a Creepy Doll

    Thanks to the Japan-based company Clone Factory, you can give the gift of an unsettling plastic simulacrum formed deep within the uncanny valley. Blogger Danny Choo has a post up explaining the entire process, which involves multi-angle photography, face-mapping, and custom 3D printing. The cost of your very own pint-sized doppleganger is 138,000 yen or around $1,700, but the effect of it is priceless. Clearly there's a lot of high-technology and craftsmanship going into these dolls, but that doesn't change how unbelievably creepy they are. See for yourself, after the break.
