I've decided to revamp this old blog a bit and concentrate mainly on the male fashion and character dolls. I've been a fan of the male dolls since Tonner introduced Matt and all the fabulous artists out there started repainting him. For a while I focused my collection on the repainted male Tonner dolls. While I love dolls in general and certainly collect the girls too, the male dolls remain a bit of a focus here.................they aren't just accessories.
I've had this guy for a while, just never gotten around to taking his picture. Since I do love the mandolls, when I saw Tonner had done Russell in the Jac skintone I knew he would have to come live with me eventually.
When I caught him on sale right after the first of the year, I bit the bullet and bought him. I have to say, I really do love this skintone for Russell. The hairstyle makes him appear a bit harsh in head on shots, but in person he's not as harsh as he sometimes appears in photos.
