Sienna moans about ROC Action Figure

Postby AnnieM » 21 Jul 2009 17:55

Quoted in today's Sun, it seems Miss Miller's not too happy with her ROC figure likeness

she said "My doll is cross-eyed and has the biggest chin you have ever seen. Action figures are always a bit ff, aren't they? Oddly enough from side on, it s definitely me but front on it looks sort of possessed"

The Sun's editorial in the article also refers to the figure as a "doll".

I don't think it's that bad, in fact from what I've seen I rather like some of the ROC figures

Well, most action figures based on real people tend to sculpt even the slightest detail, and the sculpted result tends to unintentionally accentuate some small imperfections (see the FF movie Sue Storm figure).

I remember Carie Fisher having a similar complaint about the "Slave Girl" leia figure..That 1st version of the her in the white dress & hair buns, when line was re-launched in the 90's, was truly terrible.
You never seem to hear male actors complaining about an action figure likeness do you?

Women always find something to complain, but in this case she is right: the figures suck big time.

Harrison Ford wasn't too keen with the initial run in the seventies only Mark Hamill was jumping for joy.

It's odd that Duke, Hawk, Ripcord, Breaker and even Zartan have been reproduced so well in movie figure form, yet the Baroness, Cover Girl (and to a lesser extent Scarlett) look nothing like the actors. Especially a pity in Sienna Miller's case, her being such a pip and all...

Hi C.R.
Normally it's the robots & other hardware that turns out great & actors that look nothing like the figures.

I've had a closer look at the Baroness ROC figure and the face sculpt does indeed look bloody awful - like some slapper hanging around the back door of the Dog and Duck well after last orders.
