When you hear the word Uglydoll, it's natural to first think about the cuddly soft plush dolls. But in recent years, they've been expanding into tin, vinyl, clothing, etc.

Designer toy collectors are probably well aware of David + Sun-Min's Uglydoll Action Figures. Now on Series 3, the 3” tall vinyl toy line brings some of the most popular Uglydoll characters from plush to plastic.

Similar to Series 2, Pretty Ugly has chosen to not go with a blind box series. Each box has a window front, with a photo of the character on the top lid. Actually, the entire box is decorated in a photograph.

Our Opinion

Of course, Ugydoll “Action Figures” is a little bit of a misnomer. It was joked – by David Horvath – that each figure had an "action feature posable waist line". But most of them do have three points, except for the figures with wings (Ice Bat and Ninja Batty Shogun).

REVIEW: Perseus Tonner Character Figure

The 2010 fantasy film Clash of the Titans might be best known for the cheesy commercial featuring Liam Neeson, as Zeus, shouting “Release the Kacken!”. It's a remake of the 1981 film of the same name, with a storyline that is loosely based on the Greek myth of Perseus.

Tonner Doll Company, which acquired the rights to produce Dressed Tonner Character Figures based on the Clash of the Titans film, has released the main character Perseus, as portrayed by Sam Worthington.

Our Opinion

Unfortunately, the Clash of the Titans film didn't get the types of reviews that the movie studio was looking for. But it made a ton of movie, so moviegoers worldwide must have enjoyed the film a little bit. Does that mean that they'd be interested in collectible figures based on the movie? It's quite possible, since Tonner isn't the first company we've seen release collectibles based on the license.
