According to its website, British company Emperis is selling an $1100 doll-sized version of Idris Elba, who was recently crowned Sexiest Man Alive by ‘People’. The glorified action figure is 17 inches tall, has moveable joints, a sleek physique, and a fashionable ensemble of a suit jacket, vest and jeans.
Just one problem – this doll looks nothing like Idris Elba..
Montel Williams, maybe. But Elba?? In my opinion – nope.
For starters, the doll is bald. Elba has a full head of hair. The doll doesn’t appear to have any kind of muscular build, while Elba does. And the face? Well….that’s a bit of a mystery.
What do YOU think? Despite the many flaws, the doll has sold out. It’s no longer available on the Empris site. Or perhaps they removed it, realizing they’re….well…..’off’. ~ Jason
