You are soo right, the TNT should have a turned up nose with a ball point, not a Midge type nose
The fuzz head Ken is a joke, but the Painted hair & Alan were as close to the originals your going to get for now. Even Midge was very close, and the 50th Francie was close. My problem is with Barbie herself, poor girl is never even her vintage self. Her repro clothes are almost perfect, except Gold and Glamour, All the Jazz, Gay Parisian, Solo's Material is way off, but Solo does look good is pictures, but these fashions were the worst, all others came very close. Sophisticated Lady was spot on though.
Ken,Allen,and Midge,and the last Skipper have all been spot on pretty much,while Barbie and Francie,and Stacey have been all over the board,Barbie's eyelash ridge is wrong,the temple rooting, is always straight,and poor Stacey looks like she has the mumps everytime her head is used, Tnt Barbie's nose is wrong, and Francie's eyes and jawline are wrong,While they did get the neck-knob correct which is good, why not go all the way. Can we some how let Bill Greening know we want exact repros not fake ones.All of us who collect vintage know the difference, when we see one and the materials used then are not the same nor the hair fibers. I just hope before I die, they will get it right. I know with the repro HOT Wheels Mattel was spot on when ever they did one, so what's up with the repro barbie line.
