Archie dolls
« on: October 02, 2007, 02:44:47 AM »
I think my most prized Archie-related possession is the set of Archie dolls that came out about 20 years ago from Hamilton Gifts. They're the versions that are about 18" tall with plastic heads and plush bodies, and Betty and Veronica have Barbie-like hair.

Probably my favorite thing about them is the classic, retro feel to them. Archie wearing his bowtie and checkered pants, Jughead in his 'S' sweater, Betty in 50's fashion...

Anyone else want to share appreciation for these?

I'm not much of a toy collector, but I'd love to see any pics you have of them. One member here named Forsythe has a HUGE Archie Comics/ toys / misc collection. I keep pestering him to write a book with Chip Kidd called "Collecting Archie" much like the "Collecting Batman" book that came out a few years ago... :)

Here are some images of my set, which I got from eBay:















My one gripe is I wish they'd made Hot Dog. And a jalopy.

Forsythe - would it be possible for you to take a picture of the puzzle at the top right of that picture, and The Archie Game box too?

I have those bendable figures that came out in the late 1980's.  I acquired Archie, Jughead, and Betty.  I could never find Veronica or Reggie though...I guess they were "too good" for discount toy stores.  LOL!

But, I really like your dolls, Forsythe...I think I remember seeing an ad for them years ago where you could cut the coupon out and mail it with the money for the dolls...those Betty and Veronica dolls look familiar.

Cap'n - I'm pretty sure he's posted pictures of these dolls before from the pictures of his Archie Room.

... where we should all aspire to one day visit! :)

Still my favorite Archie collectibles. I'm surprised no one has ever made Archie dolls since, aside from the Betty & Veronica fashion dolls from a few years ago.

I was thinking how fun it would be to make new comic stories using these dolls, similar to Twisted Toyfare Theatre. It'd be a limited cast (just the core five) but anyone interested in seeing that?

If you could make them as funny as Twisted Toyfare, go for it!
