In real life he wasn't exactly the most rugged looking but he certainly didn't look like an innocent. Mattel really knocked their James Dean doll out of the park.
Sadly, this new doll from Tonner looks way too boyish and not nearly as tough or as good looking as the real Dean was. This is a nice doll and possibly a good base for customizers. I'm always in the market for really great looking male dolls to keep my girls company. But my girls are older than this fellow.
