Robert Tonner Answers Your Questions

Carolyn in San Diego said...
No question, just a comment; Mr. Tonner thank you for continuing to bring us beautiful and creative dolls. They bring joy to my world!
Thanks…they do for me, too!

WIth the Blue Fairy and Pinocchio from the convention, and now Princess Aurora and Maleficent, will we be seeing more dolls from the classic Disney animated films?
Most definitely, we have a great relationship with Disney and look forward to exploring more of their characters.

Hi Robert,Wish I could have made it in person, everything looks fabulous!Please can you tell us when the official photo;s will be up on your site?Thanks,Tintin
Very soon…everything is being released in increments…some items are still subject to studio approvals (Dumbledore, Maxwell Smart, new Joan Crawford, etc.).

Phyllis in Canada said...
Will you ever have an event/convention in Canada or somewhere in the Pacific northwest?
We have tried…but maybe we will consider this area again in the future. If you have a suggestion of a specific place or hotel, please let us know.

Thank you for sharing this event with those who couldn't make it to New York! Will we be seeing Will Turner later today? How about new Lara Croft? Any idea how soon Luna and Dumbeldore will ship? Love the platinum Devereaux in black. Will she be on your website today? Will there be more furniture in the future? I'll give someone else a chance to ask questions, LOL. Thanks again!!!!
See answer above on when items will appear on website. Not sure when Dumbledore and Luna will ship…they are still going through approvals…probably toward the end of the year or early 2009.

Hi Robert,Thanks for all the beautiful dolls!Is there a chance we will ever see Sydney's twin brother Simon become a doll? How about Zandra from the Chase Models? And finally, can we see the Mera sculpt and Daphne sculpt be used somewhere in Tyler's world?Thanks!Vince
All good questions…unfortunately, no good answers! These are all good things I’ve considered, but no immediate plans.

I heard a rumor from Chicago Wizard World that you got the rights to Doctor Who and Torchwood. Does that mean we will see a doll of David Tennant as Doctor Who and John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness any time soon? I love all the current Doctor Who and Torchwood shows and would love to have these dolls.Jenny
This rumor happens to be true!

I have been working on this, but I’ve not been happy the sculpts as of yet. I am still working on this…

Robert, I LOVE the new DeeAnna Denton doll - the wardrobe possibilities are mind boggling! I can't wait to see her in person. As always, beautiful dolls!
Thank you…and I love this line also. The images for this line will go up in about two weeks...maybe sooner if we can get the pics finished.

Christian said...

Robert is it true that you are having the 2009 Spring/Summer Convention in Chicago again? I heard from several people that were at the Comic Convention in Chicago. If you are will it be in Lombard at the Westin?

I would love to see a Black Canary & Green Arrow wedding couple! and are their any plans for a DC Stars trunk set?...or just a trunk on it's own?

Just wanted to say thanks for making doll collecting such a delight, for having such a fun, approachable staff and for setting up this blog so that those of us at home can play along..

You are all so creative and talented.

So again, thanks to you, Robert, and everyone at Tonner doll!

Oh, I almost forgot... will you be doing other stars like Greta Garbo etc...?

AHHHH! I just saw the Wonder Woman trunnk in one of the bog pictures! *SQUEAL* Is it an FAO exclusive? Any plans to do more of these for the other girls? What about separates for the men? Or secret identity clothes? Also I would love normal hands for Superman/Clark as well as punching hands. Cheers, and thanks so much for making all my dolly dreams come true. My boyfriend, however, is not very pleased. too bad right!

TONNER said...

Sorry - Robert Tonner has left the building...will try to get more pics for you, though!

Hi Robert,
The best hotel to have a convention is the Grand Hyatt at
6th Ave and Pine st. downtown Seattle. I would love to attend at least one of your conventions - had lots of fun at the Tonner trunk showing at Bearzabout.

Thanks again for the man dolls and Will Turner is handsome. Hope the pic I saw on the blog is the actual doll and not a prototype.

Your collection is leaning more and more towards the golden age of Hollywood. Will you venture into creating likenesses of other silver screen greats?

Thanks again and BEST ALWAYS.

Vanessa G. in Seattle

ah,poor Simon...just promise not to kill him off or anything,lol.Daphne would make an excellent addition to the Tyler line.It'd be cool to see her with more modern hairstyles.
Encouraging news about that asian male! Glad Robert is being picky about his sculpt.We've waited awhile & don't mind a little longer to be sure the sculpt is "just right".

Thanks to Mr.T for taking the time to answer questions.

(Oh,& TN or GA would be great for conventions,too! Wouldn't want a heavy southern belle theme,though.Just sayin'...)
