'Green Lantern,' 'Twilight,' 'BioShock' action figures doll up Toy Fair 2011

This year’s Toy Fair kicked off yesterday, introducing a gaggle of action figures built around new movie franchises, upcoming videogames, and attractive vampire teenagers. Tons of photos from the event have shown up online, but I’d like to direct your attention to freakishly real-looking toys in particular. The “Jasper” figure (see left) from Twilight perfectly captures Jackson Rathbone’s elfen cheekbones — parents of 9-year-old girls, I present you with the only birthday present your daughter will really want this year. The Green Lantern action figure is also pretty spot-on — although Ryan Reynolds’ hair looks a little bit too Harry Osborn-esque — but what’s interesting is how organic-looking they’ve made the costume. It almost looks vaguely insectile. Check it out after the jump…

Admittedly, Kilowog looks like a Clive Barker nightmare, but otherwise, looks pretty cool. Also, for no good reason besides the fact that I finally finished BioShock 1 yesterday, check out some groovy Big Daddy figures from the new BioShock collection. Hooray for the cyborg goon worshippers of Ayn Rand!:

If you want to see more, Collider posted 100 or so photos from the event. Check it out then let us know your pick for Coolest Doll Action Figure at Toy Fair 2011.

    I’m actually impressed with the Twilight figures. Much like in the movies, the male looks far more feminine than the female.

    Darren- you know you finished BioShock because I commented during the Grammy liveblog on how the giant robot-monsters in Sucker Punch look like Big Daddies haha

    Dude, there’s no way the production Jasper will look anywhere near that good facially. I’m STILL mad that I pre-ordered the Jacob and it doesn’t look anything like Taylor Lautner, or even like the picture of the doll that was circulating at the time… Not that he doesn’t still get to date my daughter’s Barbies, but that’s because men are in short supply in her world!

    Those Twilight dolls are one the creepiest toys I’ve seen in my life.

    Pondering…does Jasper’s hair look worse in the movies or on the doll?

      Movies.

      However, I wonder why Alice’s arms are so tan, while Jasper looks really pale. They should both be that pale.
