Fan Made: Angelina Jolie -- The Doll

When I see fan creations like the one above, I wonder how so many celebrity dolls turn out so crappy. I mean, they do all those fancy face scans and likeness tests, but half the time the little doll barely resembles the celebrity it's showcasing. Well, all of that technology is pretty much a waste when you take into consideration the image at the top of this post. The above Angelina Jolie doll is a creation of artist Noel Cruz, and was just featured earlier this month in The Daily Mail. However, this isn't some hand-made doll, born from scans and hi-tech gadgets. Actually, Cruz just "removed the factory paint" from an ordinary doll and repainted her Jolie-style. That's it. No extra molding -- just some perfectly whipped-up color and a wig. Talk about some stellar talent right there.

What would something like this cost? Well, a private bidder purchased it for £2,000 (or roughly $3,700) on eBay. Yeah, a little more expensive than the last Barbie doll you bought, huh? Those looking to save a little money can instead pick up an Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider doll on eBay for about $10 (sexy lips still included).
