             Review: Jupiter Ascending (Wedding Dress) Figure by Tonner Doll
by Beverly Lanzilla and Greg Sullivan

The Tonner Doll Company sent us the elegant and beautiful Jupiter Ascending doll from their collection of dolls from the Jupiter Ascending movie released this year.  Tonner is making three different dolls: Jupiter Jones (16"), Jupiter Ascending (16"), and Caine (17").  The doll that Tonner is calling "Jupiter Ascending" is the character Jupiter Jones (played by Mila Kunis) in her princess wedding dress.

It is a representation of the highest royalty in the galaxy on the most important day of her life.      Photos by Sophie Sullivan
The facial recreation of Mila Kunis is very well done. This is always a strength with Tonner's TV and Movie character dolls.

The recreation of the elaborate headdress that Jupiter wears in this part of the film is also incredibly achieved. Using chromed plastic, fabric flowers, plastic beads, and small plastic filaments, the artists at Tonner made a beautiful replica of the headdress that looks wonderful on the doll.

The detail work on both the headdress and the dress itself is a marvel. Look at the detail photos of the dress above. The detailed stitching, miniature cloth flowers and the spangled circles are all placed with care and artistry. Superior work on all fronts!

That same level of detail is present in the entire costume. The stitching on the fishnet stockings and white pumps is superb. Photos by Sophie Sullivan The headdress is also removable, which allows you a better view of the princess hairdo. All in all, my opinion of all Tonner dolls is that they are superior, but this is a particularly good one even by their standards. The doll can be purchased for $236.88 at the Tonner Doll website here www.tonnerdoll.com.

I had the opportunity to see Tonner Dolls Lady Action figure in person recently and I must say she is quite a beauty! The sexy spy/heroin/adventurer stands 15" tall and sports a female version of the Captain Action costume. Sporting black hair and the Tonner quality head sculpt and paint!

She comes with the Captain Action hat, a faux leather skirt with working holster for her gun, sword (which sadly she can't hold) and sexy black boots! This marriage of Tonner Doll and Captain/Lady Action is a perfect fit!





                                              Review:  DC Stars Harley Quinn by Tonner Doll
                                                                            by Beverly Lanzilla





Tonner Doll Co. and DC Comics have teamed up and created a beautiful figure of Harley Quinn. The sadistic Harley Quinn is based on the best selling comic book Batman: Hush by Joseph Loeb and Jim Lee. This fascinating 1:6 scale figure is sculpted in plastic from the design by Jim Lee. The costume fits really good and the colors are great! It would have been great to see her knockout punching glove and her trick pistol, but the doll itself is fantastic. This doll is limited to 500 worldwide.

We have for review the New 52 Wonder Woman Tonner doll. She’s designated “New 52” because DC Comics have rebooted/updated  their superhero characters to be more modern. You will see the other DC superheroes in slightly different costumes as well. Wonder Woman here is accented with silver breastplate and headband instead of gold and navy blue boots instead of red to reflect the New 52 Wonder Woman costume. 

The Doll is 16” tall, limited to 300 and includes:

· Fine quality vinyl and hard plastic
· New Tyler head sculpt
· Tyler skin tone
· Blue painted eyes
· Raven rooted saran hair
· Red faux leather bodice with silver trim
· Navy blue lycra panty with silver faux leather stars 
· Silver faux leather gauntlets
· Silver faux leather armband
· Silver faux leather choker
· Silver faux leather headband with a red star decoration
· Gold lasso
· Navy blue and silver faux leather boots (with zippers for easy removal/dress)
· Nude pantyhose
· Stand

For those who like the New 52 Wonder Woman (I myself am a classic red/gold Wonder Woman fan), this is a near spot on resemblance to her comic counterpart! She shines with the Tonner quality! The head sculpt in my opinion, reflects Greek features with flowing black hair and well painted eyes and red lips. The costume is comprised of the high quality one would expect from Tonner Doll.  Her toenails are even painted red! The only thing I can nitpick about is that she does not come with her sword which she freely uses now in the comics since she is now more warrior like. I’m sure any die hard collector could find an appropriate sword for her though. The New 52 Wonder Woman retails for $199.99 and is still available on the Tonner website, use our free shipping code,BATCC, (www.tonnerdoll.com) so lasso her while you can!
