    Default Hot Toys Beauty and the Beast


    Anybody else want one?

    I keep hoping it's a possibility since a) they made Jolie from Maleficent and since b) Watson is popular with the "geekdom" so Hot Toys may think they can get some sales from producing a figure of her.

    I know they didn't do the live action Cinderella or Aurora from Maleficent, but those actresses don't have the star power of Watson so perhaps they will pursue a Belle.

    edit: Officially announced!

    I see this movie smashing records like we've never seen, even if it somehow gets bad reviews. I would say HT is better off making a 2-pack with Beast. Other than that, Disneystore always does exclusives for their live-action films. And Hasbro as the license holder will likely do some for other retailers. The tailoring is usually quite impressive on these more mass-market ones, sometimes comparable to any high-end 1/6 figure. It's just the paint and body that is more toy-like so you'd have to customize it to make it look really good.

    I have the HT Maleficent, it's okay but definitely not worth the price tag. I also have the live-action Cinderella, Aurora, and Lady Tremaine from Mattel/Disneystore that's waiting for repainted portraits (It'll be a while, I'm not that good yet). I'll likely do the same for Beast and Belle. Right now I also have a customized animated Beast that I'm working on.

    I'm surprised no one has tried to market realistic 1:6 fashion dolls, which have obviously sold well historically in stylized and larger scales. I always liked the Gene line and have owned several of them.

    Obviously there is the whole 'femdoll' niche to this hobby, but those are pretty much solely aimed at a subset of male collectors, even the fashion accessories. Of course at the same time companies like Phicen have delivered a realistic base body.

    It's probably all about finding a way to market it to the target audience. This movie would be a good opportunity.

    Yeah, I thought of this a while back. They've made Chewie twice, so I could see them making Beast with hair. A 2-pack with Belle would be great.

    Since HT already has Disney's Marvel and Star Wars I'm sure they could get other properties. HT did make Maleficent. I picked one up, however not sure how well it sold. My Wife and I saw Cinderella with our friends and it was a gorgeous movie. I'd add a Cinderella and Prince to the collection. Beauty and the Beast as well. We have Disney porcelain collectibles from when our kids were younger.

    There is a big difference. Jolie is pretty. Plus Watson is insufferable...

    Star Ace has the likeness rights to Emma, doe that matter? I believe McFarlane never made a Jordan because Upper Deck had his.

    I'm really looking forward to this movie. I like Emma Watson and love Beauty and the Beast.

    I'll probably get one of the Disney store dolls they make.

    Different film. Different contract.

    I saw the Hasbro ones and unfortunately they are hideous. I am hoping the Disney Store ones are good, but I think they tend to make their heads really big

    I am really hoping Barbie does one. They did a Cinderella live action one when it came out and it had a great likeness to Lily James. I'm not sure if its a possibility now though since Hasbro has made some dolls.
