Can we start a serious discussion of the Tonnika Sisters yet?

Yes, absolutely - no actor can claim ownership of a likeness for a masked character. Any pre-production or final design becomes the property of LFL as soon as its submitted for consideration. This is why Hasbro can release figures / vehicles based on concept art as well. Likeness pertains only to someone's actual face appearing in a film.
That's what I thought. So, if the Tonnika Sisters had been masked this wouldn't even be an issue & figures would probably already have been made of them. As I mentioned earlier, they had a lot of make-up on & large wigs, so probably wouldn't have been recognizable as themselves without this. That being said, I guess the fact that their faces could clearly be seen was enough for this to be an issue.

Too bad. The more time passes, the more I want a Tonnika Sisters two-pack. No cantina diorama will be complete without them ;)

I bought the best head sculpt I could find and have yet to customize these. Lacking artistic talent is a problem.

They are the top of my list.

Good to know. However, I still think that if a TS two-pack were to ever come out it would be a minor miracle. We'll see.

Wwe said there would never be another Randy Savage figure in the line....years later Macho Man. Never lose hope. They could debut them as retros though...
