Will Turner Action Figure

I found a link on OBM today for a new Will Turner Action Figure. Check it out.... it really sounds cool. You get one action figure of Will, two heads, and clothes & accessories for both "civilian" Will and "pirate" Will.

Here's the link:Will Turner Action Figure

Unfortunately, its not available til January....but may be worth waiting for.
What do you think?

Two heads? Why would it need two heads?

Maybe the hat is permanently attached to the second head. If you want pirate Will, use his head. If you want dandy Will with his hat, put on the other head.

Two different facial expressions... it kind of freaks me out that everyone is going to be ripping Will's head off...

It's not just you. IMO three dimensional representation of a person never looks right.

I'm impressed with the overall appearance, most particularly his clothing.

Claps hand over mouth, refrains from inappropriate comments about two heads.

I agree, he doesn't really look like Will Turner. I really wish these companies would use rooted hair!

And the other one.

I'm not really sure how I feel about them. I think the clothing looks really good but the face doesn't quite work for me.

The face(s) don't have the youthful look of Orlando....no sexy glow , just mainly a glare, like he's mad at the world !!! Will Turner never seemed mad in POTC, confused YES but not mad.

I think a softer look would have made the dolls look more like Orlando

Still, I'll probably buy it (them?) just for the novelty of the two heads

Well, two heads ARE better than one.

I agree that the faces should have had a more youthful look. Those faces look like they belong to Bootstrap Bill instead of Will.

Elf Lady, is there room next to you because I've got my hand over my mouth over here, thinking about the two head thing, and I'm trying to be really, really good and not say anything inappropriate but my mind is about to explode ?

Vicki is sitting with Marilyn and Elf Lady on the bench. Hey, we can do that see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil thing! Of course we can still have evil thoughts. We're not that good.

You all are sick little puppies, sitting over there, perving over a perfectly innocent doll.

*wonders if the clothes are...um...changeable*

The hatless head is rather, errr, ugly. I know they're only dolls and we can't expect a perfect replica of Orlando, but they don't even come close to duplicating his ever so gorgeous face.

Ha! I would but I think that bench is full.

Why on earth did they make him looks so old. And he didn't scowl like that. Oh well, I suppose it could have been worse. The costumes look good though.

I would buy it if the head is like the picture below

It is a hand-made doll made by a Japanese doll artist, Miyuki.
