I have to say, this particular Kate in the blue 'Issa' dress is absolutely astounding. I would've said that was actually Kate. Well done to all involved.
The British ones look good (especially Kate). I'm not liking the one of William all that much though.

I'm not a fan of the ones for NY. No likeness whatsoever.

Yes, that is creepy. However, the whole wax thing is creepy to me.

They did give Kate (in the engagement reproduction) a figure.

That was pretty simple since she's already got one.

That's exactly what I was going to say. LoL
Either way I hate wax figures, especially of people who are still alive.

When looking at the engagement photos with Kate in the blue dress, I thought she wasn't holding a purse during the "press conference". Why is she holding a purse in the blue dress, when in the "press conference" she didn't?

Perhaps the sculptor wanted to use artistic license, though I cannot fathom why such would be necessary.

The wax figures are absolutely astonish, they are really good, except for the colour of their faces I think they 100% the same...

I couldn't figure out the clutch bag holding either. Especially since they were at great pains to tell everyone they'd had an exact replica of the engagement ring made. But, you can't even see it!

Are wax figures easily manipulated into new poses? I assumed Kate's arm would be tucked in William's with the ring showing, but maybe if they're not easily manipulated they'd be stuck like that and so one couldn't be displayed without the other?

Will and Kate Barbie dolls inspired by Royal Wedding sell out (and they haven't even gone on sale yet!)
Quote:
A pre-order for the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Barbie dolls has sold out in the U.S. Tagged the 'William and Catherine Royal Wedding Giftset,' they were released on February 14 which meant it took less than two months for eager fans to exhaust the giant toy companyís stock. The set of Mattel's two plastic figurines, which will be released in stores on April 29 to coincide with the royal coupleís one-year wedding anniversary, costs $100.

I'm really not a doll person; I must admit that they all freak me out a bit.

William seems to be much harder to get right than Kate. Mattel and Madame Tussauds have struggled with really capturing his likeness.

Me too! I like toys (teddy bears and whatnot) but human-like dolls kind of scare me.

I agree: none of the "Williams" really looked like him, and this doll is no exception.

They can get Kate's likeness spot on at Mme. Tussaud's, but for some reason all the bridal dolls that have been manufactured this past year look like Bridezilla!!
