Saw the new 2017 Beauty and the Beast dolls.

I don't care for the Emma Watson head.  Like many celebrity dolls, it's not very attractive, but it's not as bad as some have been.  I think the clothes should also be a lot better, considering the retail prices.  The ballroom pair are $50, the prince set is $40, the singing doll is $30, the basic ballgown Belle is $20, and the peasant Belle is $15.

I do like the prince.  I think he's got a nice generic face, and could be redressed in something better.  His hair is molded on, but I don't mind so much, 18th century heads are a rarity.  I'd like to get one if they go on clearance.

The rest of the photos.  I believe each Belle head has a slightly different paint color selection.  The singing doll has pinker blush, and a mole.

Thank you for all the pictures. I see I'm not missing out on anything. Like you, I only like the prince.

Thanks for sharing these photos. I was not aware a new Beauty and the Beast was coming out. I like the Prince doll. I could like the Belle doll ... would need to see her in person. Sometimes individual faces come off better like someone gave the doll a better face job. Not the strongest or best likeness, but then the earlier Mattel Harry Potter Emma Watson dolls just missed on the likeness. She's interesting enough to get for a different face mold. I wonder what a doll artist could do to strengthen the likeness.
