No, it's a 6", from MAC. Though at its price, you'd swear it was a 12" figure. :o

Thanks, toyfare has gotten like that with all of it's exclusives.  I guess they want some of the ebay margin as well.  At 6" scale, I may get one.  Of course, we all know what that will start....

I got the mag today, and there's an option of ordering two vamp-face Willows and getting with that a regular faced version in the same outfit--3 figures, $54. I'm thinking about springing for that one, but I have nary a clue what I'll do with the other vamp-face Willow. Trade bait, I suppose.

Hm. I found this store called Time and Space Toys, and they have an offer for all six upcoming Willows, including the non-vamp faced Doppelgangland Willow. No price is listed, but it's expected in stock April 2004. Tough choices.

And, i found this link for the Willow in question. I emailed the owner and asked if the Willow will be the one pictured, and not the vamp one. I'll let you know his response when I get it. Linky:

I ordered the IKON Buffy and Spike from them, and they arrived well-packed. They take a while to get here, as they're based in Florida, but no complaints here.

OK, here's his reply:

"Hi Ben,
  The "Previews Exclusive Doppelgangland Willow" will have the regular
Willow face NOT the Vamped one.
 Thanks,
Mike"

That's better than an extra vamp Willow and $18 for the regular face.

shabbyblue from GH pointed out this place. Looks pretty good to me. ( I did sign up after all.)

Sweet Willow-y goodness.

Plastic-y Willow, anyway.

LOL on the cleavage change between Vamp Willow and Willow in Vamp Willow's clothes :)

Sideshow finally gets around to a Willow doll, but instead a world class likeness of Alyson Hannigan in all her beauty and charm like the other dolls, this is a MASSIVE disappointment.  It's fine, I suppose, but what the hell were they thinking?  "Let's skip Willow and do ugly Vampire Willow!  Yeah!"   :(

Yeah, it's kind of a stinker. Maybe it's just a prototype and the neck will be shortened a bit.

Well, now that I look at it again, yeah, it is off.  Too slender.  

I only really want the 12" Spike, so it won't break my heart to skip this one.

DST is handing out a giveaway at Toy Fair this weekend. It's a repainted Willow with a kickin' rad Dingoes Ate My Baby t-shirt.  I guess it's being handled like Toy Fair Vader, only without availability through a fan club.
 
ooof. HMI hates exclusives.
