REVIEW: Mary Jane Watson TCF
The character of Mary Jane Watson has appeared in all three of the Spider-Man feature films. Kirsten Dunst has played the role of Peter Parker’s love interest in the movie adaptation of the popular comic book.
Tonner Doll Company has produced two figures based on Mary Jane. While we’ll be looking at Mary Jane dressed in her blue gown, there also is a Tonner Character Figure of MJ in her waitress outfit. Not only do the outfits differ, so do the hairstyles.
The packaging for Mary Jane is the same as Gwen Stacy. The rectangular box is black with a Spider-Man 3 logo on the front. The figure is securely packaged with ribbons and foam holding each TCF in place. The doll is also protected with plastic and a hairnet.
The Mary Jane Watson Tonner Character Figure is approximately 16” tall
and made of hard plastic as well as vinyl. She has 13 points of
articulation and hand painted details on her face. The rooted hair is
amazingly styled. The figure is an authorized likeness of Kirsten
Dunst, and limited to a run of 2,500 pieces.
“Mary Jane wears a chiffon layered gown with godets in the skirt based
on the film designer’s costumes.” (I would have said that it’s a
puffy, light blue dress) The figure includes a display stand, which is
completely hidden due to that puffy dress.
Maybe this should just be called a Kirsten Dunst doll. Why, you ask?
Well, it looks exactly like her. I know it's supposed to, but how often do companies just nail it? This figure will obviously be in the
running for the best sculpting work of 2007. It’s another excellent job by
Robert Tonner. And the hair must have taken about two hours to style on each one of these 2,500 figures.
Everything about this doll is eloquent. The sculpt, the hair and the
outfit all shout of high quality. There are not many products that
warrant a $150 price tag, but this is one of them.
