Big Finish's Gary Russell and Paul each have a doll, and I have the remaining one. Smile

All three are different.

Bobbleheads are the zaniest things to come along...! Smile

We have one of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, McNabb. But it doesn't look much like him, IMO. McNabb is much handsomer.

I think they ought not to be smiling. They always look silly when you have a lot of teeth showing on people in artwork unless it's a comic drawing. Surprised But then I suppose they wouldn't look like happy bobbles then. Very Happy

The stamps shown at the beginning of this thread were done by photostamps.com. I also got some stamps made by zazzle.com using this pic of Paul:



I included a sheet of stamps with the above image in the envelope with Grace's ill-fated Paulie Valentine.

Oh, Grace asked for some more views of the dolls, and here they are:







The views from the sides are pretty good, and Jason Haigh-Ellery said they got Paul's forehead correctly. However, the face on views aren't representative. Perhaps if the teeth had more detail (i.e. prominent canine teeth), the resemblance would be better.

The bobbleheads were made based on the following photographs, a couple of which show Paul grinning:









Although getting the dolls made was an interesting venture, I don't think I'll obtain any more from that company (whoopassenterprises.com).
