These are the dolls you’re looking for. Graphic designer, illustrator and disciple of the Russian side of the Force Andy Stattmiller made nesting dolls of the characters in Star Wars IV: A New Hope. Just the main ones though.
You might think that only a real history buff would love U.S. President action figures, but anyone can get into these Presidential action figures as movie monsters. And besides, many of us think that politicians are freaks and monsters already.
Well, Mattel finally went out and did it. Open a Barbie-themed cafe, I mean. It’s located in Taiwan and is, as expected, fitted with furniture in various shades of pink that’ll drive any man crazy and any Barbie-loving girl equally nuts.
We’ve seen an amigurumi of Old Snake before, but I like the young Solid Snake much better than that bitter – but heroic! – old fart. Which is why if I had this amigurumi I would hug it so tightly a ration would come out before I even dropped it.
I hate clowns. Never liked them when I was still a kid, and I still don’t. Ronald McDonald used to be an exception. I say ‘used to be’, because after seeing these super-sized McDonald’s figures with their evil faces and transparent abdomens, I’m not really sure how I feel anymore.
If there’s one thing that’s for sure, it’s that you can find some really odd stuff if you dig around deep enough over on Etsy. For instance, while I was searching for some zombie-related items, I came across this monstrosity.
A pregnant baby doll that has its own pregnant baby? This ‘toy’ would probably become every mothers’ worst nightmare, if it actually existed. Aside from that, the whole concept is just plain wrong and twisted.
Fortunately, it’s not really a toy.
After decades of scarring girls by giving them an impossible ideal of beauty, body issues and eating disorders, it’s nice to see that Barbie will now be doing something productive – preparing them for the eventual zombie apocalypse.
There’s something that’s always fascinated me about matroyshka, those Russian nesting dolls. I think it’s that they sort of remind me of Inception – in doll form. You know, a doll within a doll within a doll.
I have trouble understanding why anyone would want a fake 3D clone of themselves, but hey, who really understands the Japanese? One shop in Tokyo, Japan, has decided to offer realistic replicas of people to discerning customers.
