Definitely a Carol Ferris re-do ... I'm very disappointed that it's not a Ken.
These come courtesy of Papusile Mele via a Spanish doll blog.
There is zero information about these, though the doll's name/call sign is Phoenix. I know nothing about the movie but considering that Anthony Edward's character's call sign in the original was Goose, maybe they're sticking with a bird theme? Yeah, I know. Don't try to apply logic to this.
In any case, I am disappointed. While I didn't expect a Tom Cruise look-alike doll, I would have thought some nod to his Maverick character would have been more appropriate. This, to me, is just a cheapened version of Green Lantern's Carol Ferris - the doll Mattel did in 2011 for San Diego Comic Con.
I like the box art and looking at the fighter jets in back of Phoenix, for just a moment, I get the flashback and chills from that summer back in 1986 when my girlfriends and I all went to the theater to see the original Top Gun - and the way we all swooned during the volleyball scene. LOL But unless she shows up very cheaply somewhere? That's not enough to make me buy this doll.
Just another one to cross off my "maybe" list.
Might be time to spend the money on the 2020 convention Silkstone on the secondary market since so far this year, nothing is really appealing to me.
