This is peak capitalism right here. Oh wells... I’m all for representation so I guess.... but watch Mattel bring out toys that look caucasian 😒Anyway congratulations, at this point they own the damn bank 🙌🏾
Edit: it’s crazy that the second largest toy company in the world wants to do dolls after them. I’d be calling my mum to tell her I made it 😂

I would love them in the looks from those promos where it was the confetti? Which ever album/mini that was

oh i was googling around and someone already did custom dolls with that look. i personally find those types of dolls to be on the creepy side face-weise but they're still super well done.

wait so it will be the bts members in ken doll form or are they just using the bt21 characters for this that you will be able to dress in different outfits?

i'm pretty sure it'll be the bts in ken doll form since mattel used bts and not bt21 but now that you said it i would LOVE for a bt21 doll line that we can like. dress up.

When I found out about this, my mouth slowly dropped and then I let out a blistering evil cackle. I wonder what Suga and Joon think about this.

I can't wait to watch them promote the dolls on social media. I would die if these dolls replace fans whenever one of them is missing from a schedule.

Apparently there were limited edition figurines of them that I think SK Telecom released a while back. I think RM and and Yoongi have had to reconcile their goals as artists with being a part of the Kpop capitalist machine a while back in any case lol. At least since they started doing school uniform CFs

Feel bad for the fans wallets.

Knowing how fandom works this could become creepy really fast
I hope the boys are fine with it

I hope they're okay with being made into dolls that their creepiest fans will be able to bulkbuy...
Although let's be honest, that headline made me cackle so hard XD
