Collectible doll makers Tonner always put out some gorgeous stuff -- everything from Harry Potter to Twilight to DC/Marvel superheroines. So when this reporter visited them at this year's Toy Fair, she wondered aloud if Hunger Games dolls might not be too far behind. Well, it's happened: the company recently announced that they have acquired the license to produce 16-17 inch dolls based on the hit movie.
No date has been set yet for release, but they've announced the characters they will be sculpting dolls for: Katniss Everdeen (as portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence), Peeta Mellark (as portrayed by Josh Hutcherson) and Gale Hawthorne (as portrayed by Liam Hemsworth). Tonner also posted a sneek peek video on their site:
Tonner Doll Company CEO Robert Tonner is a big fan of the movie, and promises the sort of spot-on likenesses and highly-accurate costuming that the brand is known for. Right now all he was able to show was the Mockingjay pin, but promises fuller previews in a few weeks. We'll be there!
