"Rose Dolls"

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TitanicShack : One Thread

Does anybody know if there will ever be a 'Rose' doll? Whether it be a porcelin doll or a 'Barbie'-like doll, will companies ever release something like that?

Now, if 'Spice Girls' can have dolls of themselves, why can't a character of the greatest film of all time be replicated too?

Please, anybody, let me know.

I would imagine that a collector doll like the Madame Alexander or the Franklin mint will come up with a couple, probably within a few months. I think it only took the Franklin Mint about three months to come up with a lovely commemorative of the Princess of Wales. I would love to have Rose and Jack from the dinner party.

As far as Barbie? I don't know? She certainly has the waist ;-)

I think that maybe Mattel will make Jack and Rose Barbie and Ken dolls. I have Scarlett and Rhett from Gone With the Wind. I would really like to add J & R to my collection. You know they would sell!

Galoob Toys to Market Titanic Dolls

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 4, 1998-- Galoob Toys, Inc. (NYSE: GAL - news) today announced that it will produce a series of Titanic collector's dolls based on the film's lead character, ``Rose DeWitt Bukater,'' portrayed by Kate Winslet in her Academy Award-nominated performance. Marketed under Galoob's ``first look'' licensing agreement with Twentieth Century Fox Licensing and Merchandising, the first doll in the series is expected to reach retail shelves in October of this year.

``We are very happy to have the opportunity to market a series of dolls based on the very popular character of Rose from the biggest film of all time,'' said Gary Niles, Galoob's Executive Vice President of Marketing and Product Acquisition.

``We're thrilled to collaborate with Galoob on Titanic,'' noted Steve Ross, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Twentieth Century Fox Licensing and Merchandising. ``The doll's quality, attention to detail and natural collectability are a tribute to the film and its popularity.''

The first in a planned series of Galoob limited edition collector's dolls inspired by Titanic's ``Rose DeWitt Bukater,'' the doll stands 11-1/2 inches tall and wears the evening gown worn by Rose in her first meeting with the ``Jack Dawson'' character. The doll's elaborately detailed crimson silk empire dress is fashioned after the original costume created for the film by Academy Award-winning costume designer Deborah Lynn Scott.

Twentieth Century Fox Licensing and Merchandising licenses and markets properties worldwide on behalf of all Fox film and television properties as well as third party properties.

Any word on how much she'll cost? If she's a collector's doll...I'm afraid to know!

-- Gilded Age Junkie (GildedAgeJunkie@yahoo.com), August 04, 1998.

According to E-Online the Rose doll it self will reportedly cost you retail around $69.00 to $79.00 for the 11,1/2 inch barbie type figure, and the Fao schwarz vesion (collerts doll) $395.00.

SORRY!! Forgot to spell check I meant "collector Edition doll would cost $395.00" not "collerts"
