Now there's an idea with commercial potential, Inger. "Titanic action figure sets - perform your own battles". Sets could include Lowe and Ismay and of course Molly Brown and Hitchens. Any other suitable pairings?
Are those the dolls manufactured by Exclusive Toy Products, Inc.? I have the Thomas Andrews and Capt. Smith dolls and would like to add Molly to my collection. I know there was a J.J. Astor doll as well. Yes, I know it's currently on Ebay, and if you all don't mind, I'd like to keep the bids at bay and maybe snatch it up myself. The kids love dolls, and it enables me to tell the real story about Col. Astor when they have a visual to keep them focused.
You have to have a 'Smith vs Ismay' slugfest to see who wins and gets to captain the Titanic! The tagline: Captain Smith and Bruce Ismay square off to see who actually gets to command Titanic to her destination! Sorry that was tasteless but I could not resist.
Even worse is The Leviathan Studios Custom Action Figure Collection which includes a Thomas Andrews made from a Miles O'Brien figure [from Star Trek: Deep Space 9]. He's not wearing a Starfleet uniform, of course! He's wearing:
>Costume is the shirt, pants, and cummerbund from an Exclusive Premiere "George Burns" "Happy 95th Birthday" figure, with
>the Morning Coat from Exclusive Premiere's "Grandpa Munster."
Sha-Zamm! The prices they are asking for those dolls! Glad I got the cheaper ones, even though their costumes are like the "incredible shrinking man" as well, but at least it was peanuts compared to these prices. The faces on mine look more like the historic person, too.
