So what's with all the Vampires anyway? A friend asked me this the other day and all I could think of was Control Issues. After all, there are vampires so in love the Won't bite their lovers, there are fearful vampires lurking everywhere whom no one can control, and why the sweetening up of vampires? It is acceptable to drain someone's life, energy, to be a frienome? (haven't seen That word in Braille, of course.) Or is it just the acceptance of the fact that all friends sometimes hurt one another's feelings, by addident?
I didn't know Anything about Twilight Saga, don't watch the stuff. So I thought something was Wrong with Edward's weird, rubbery, funny textured face. I was informed that Vampires are no longer invisible in sunlight, they sparkle! I hope they jangle too, so I can stay away from them.
Then comes Jacob New Moon. An Indian? Hey, the Vampires came from Europe!
So, to have a Native looking doll would be nice. But he is played, as are many Native characters on TV, by Italian or Greek actors. Do I want to promote This trend? No. And Isn't there something a bit weird about the Native guy in the show turning into a Werewolf? I mean, let the Italian be a werewolf and a Native guy be a fellow vampire, with the rest!
How would African Americans feel if all of their wonderful actors and actresses were replaced with Latinos? There Would Be Conflict! How would European Americans feel if all of Their actresses and actors, many oof whom are wonderful, were replaced by Chinese?
So I guess this doll is probably "eye candy" like the rest, but I don't know that I will buy him, probably Not.
I'd Rather have a Hasbro "first responder" who looks Italian American or Greek American. That, at least is more honest and Believable.
