I'm excited to see that Tonner Doll will be producing character figures for this new vampire series. The first two characters scheduled for release are Edward Cullen (based on actor Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (likeness of Kristen Stewart).
I hope the introduction of these dolls will instigate a renewed interest in doll collecting in the younger crowd. I'd love to see more doll shops in my area, and an active doll collecting group and at least an annual show, featuring modern and fashion dolls.
Based on Stephenie Meyer's best-selling books, Summit Entertainment's movie adaptation of TWILIGHT is scheduled for release on November 21, 2008. You can read Tonner's press release here.
