Finally! Doctor Who and Torchwood Dolls Are Here!!

So, as you know, I’m a huge ‘Whovian’ when it comes to Doctor Who and Torchwood.  Tonner Dolls announced last year that they were making a doll line based off those two fandoms and now FINALLY we have pictures!

The Tenth Doctor (David Tennant)

Limited to 2000, $179.00, Duster jacket (not pictured here) sold separately.

Captain Jack (John Barrowman)

Limited to 2000, $199.00

Wow.  Okay, first off, I find it odd that Captain Jack is MORE expensive than The Doctor.  I would have thought it the other way around.

The look (based off Promo shots): The Tenth Doctor doesn’t look like David Tennant at all to me, but the outfit is practically perfect.  I expect many BJD collectors will be stripping this doll to put the outfit on their own Tenth Doctor!  The thing that makes this doll differ from David Tennant are the eyes, I think.  Unfortunately, if you get the eyes wrong, it makes the whole thing look off, which looks to be the case with his doll.

I think Captain Jack looks great!  The likeness is spot on.  And the outfit?  Perfect.

Gwen and Martha (not pictured here) look less like their actors and more like Tonner dolls to me, but overall, they did okay on them.  Gwen looks better than Martha, when it comes to likeness, though they made her more pretty than in the show, I think!

Overall: Overall, considering looks and prices, I think I’ll be looking out for Captain Jack and The Doctor.  A sale will be essential, though, as I don’t know if I can drop 200 bucks on each doll. *sigh*  I’ll be passing over the companions.  If they came out with a Rose, possibly, but I doubt that will ever happen.

What do you think about the dolls?
