I had ordered Hunger games Mockingjay Part 2 Peeta from Walmart and picked him up yesterday while out on errands. I really love the free pickup option at your local Walmart to avoid shipping charges and got an email on my phone so it was great- it arrived one day earlier than expected.
The box art is lovely and is really wonderful. I'm not keeping any of it or recycling like I did the Tris Divergent box art, though that eagle might be cool for an art gallery modern art poster.
Peeta, aka Ryan McDonald, was quickly de-boxed. Poppy has a new fiance!
I really love how they go together, and most important, how he is taller than her. The cheerleader Ken was not taller than her, and this guy is, just like the Barbie Basics Ken was. Plus his facemold and coloring matches hers.
Also, He goes perfect with High School musical Ricky who is his younger brother, and Spicey In Spain Poppy, who is his younger sister, Hannah McDonald.
I originally had a blonde frizzy haired doll playing his sister, but I have decided that I need dolls with articulation in all the parts. I will be using some Basics dolls with no articulation but in minor parts. (Waitresses, shop keepers, cashiers, background filler people, townspeople, etc.) Ricky has jointed elbows and bendable knees so he works pretty well.
I hope to get together a short diorama and introduce Ryan and Poppy back together soon. Weather has not been that agreeable, so perhaps I can get something together that will be really great. I never got Poppy's family introduced to Ryan.
All for now- Lisa
