Here is the highly anticipated Marilyn doll that's been hinted at for months. The biggest surprise is that she is 22" tall. That's a lot of doll! I think she may be unique, not for her fashion but for her size. I don't have any dolls that size except for Cissy.
I'm guessing there will be gorgeous fashions replicating her famous costumes. I wonder if there are enough collectors willing to go this large. There is already the 22" American Model market collectors so this may not be so far out.
What do you all think?
The Madame Alexander Marilyn is 16"
Below: three others I found. The first two are from the Franklin Mint and the third is from the Estate of MM and Twentieth Century Fox. I do not know the measurements of the last one.
|Vinyl Portrait Dress-up Doll; 15 1/8" tall; Original Price $110|
|Porcelain, 19" tall; released 1991, original price $200.|
The real doll!
