My 18" Freddie doll came in it's box this morning (no that is not a metaphor!) from Play.com (UK)

http://www.play.com/Gadgets/Gadgets/4-/904326/-/Product.html?searchstring=freddie+mercury

It cost £34.99 - but that included free delivery.

It's bigger than I expected, not a perfect likeness, but it's fine.

I have not heard the music, as I will not take it out to play with it!

Any one else get theirs?

As I asked on QOL, Would you be so kind as to post a picture of it in the box?

Sorry Dan, I do not have a digital camera, but I did link to the model itself - it's the best I can do.

it looks more like that guy from "stars in their eyes" Gary Mullen then the one and only Freddie.
i might start putting yellow jackets on action man dolls and trying to flog them on ebay as Freddie dolls as people dont seem bothered that there is no likeness whatsoever in these expensive pieces of plastic

Isn't there a fashion line for the doll - or at least a Ken doll to accompany Freddie... ?


I do not want any google ads here.

They have done the clothing details so well, its a dissapointment that the head isn't quite right.

I am not getting one. That is too much money to pay for an 18 inch doll. For that amount of money, it better be able to service me...shoo bitch.
