you'd think I'd like this, but no
I just heard the BBC Film Cafe interview with the inventor of Bollywood Legends dolls so of course I had to find a picture. As a museum person, I really do understand the urge to have physical reminders of things you hold dear, but for whatever reason, probably because they don't really look very accurate, I find these really unappealing. What say the rest of you?
they are no where close to 'replica's.
if it were the 80s and 90s, we could have blamed the technology. who/what to blame now?? the nearly blind designers or the factory guy pressing the 'produce bollywood star doll' button while sleeping.
i'd thought about one second buying one. then i found out the price and the pic *gg
but i would like to see minishahrukh and minihrithik in traditional clothing for any decision ;)
i like fanarticles *gg
but all that money i will spent in dvds i suppose. better investment.
DJ - yes, they are clearly crappy quality and that a lack of sensory input is the only explanation.
Michael - yes, the eyebrows are good. I would definitely give them top prize for Most Realistic and/or Sensible Thing about These Freaky Dolls. Second prize in that category goes to Hrithik's jeans, which are about as flared as things he often wears onscreen.
Babasko - yes! and yes! Troublesome issues re: women come to the fore even in unnerving plastic form!
However, if I saw them in a store on sale, I'd buy one. :P
