I agree, and I said so on the myspace group. There is just something off about them. More time and consideration should have been spent on their features.

Where is it? I think it doesn't look good at all.

With the family photo, are the children Louis- Charles and Marie-Therese-Charlotte? Don't you think that Marie Therese looks always too young for her age, just like in those countless movies. If the boy would have been Louis-Joseph their size could have been more accurate, but usually people know about Louis-Charles only. :?

P.S. It would be great to collect the listing here of Marie Antoinette figurines. There is Madame Tussaud's in London, Musée Grévin? Others?

The wig looks very amateur to me. It very closely resembles the one I bought for my Halloween costume lol.

Thank you for all your posts ohappydagger!
The one in Denmark is probably in Louis Tussaud's wax museum in Copenhagen in Tivoli gardens. I haven't been inside the museum since ages.
In Ladyreading site there is this one who makes smaller historic figurines, I think he has done good job.
Why is Marie Antoinette put in so many cases to look ugly or too funny?
:shock:

I don't think any of the wax figures of Marie (of a living Marie) have accurately captured Marie. It must be hard though, for there are no actual photographs to model them on.
