I received the new Johnny Depp "Mad Hatter" doll by Mattel yesterday, and I am completely knocked out, he is even better than the prototype photos! First I would state the obvious, a truly stunning doll to be sure, but certainly not one that will be of interest to re-dressers or doll makeover artists. His stark, porcelain-like white skin pretty much limits any prospects in that arena, which is just fine by me. He is exactly what he was always intended to be, a flawless representation of Johnny Depp in character as the Mad Hatter in Barbie scale, and as that, the doll is spectacular! Thanks Mattel for starting my collecting year out with a bang! Everything from the packaging to the costume details, sculpt, hair and facial screening are spot on!
