In combination with Hasbro, Marvel Studios just released the first look at action figures based on the three leading ladies of their upcoming film The Marvels. The dolls are fashioned after Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers, Teyonah Parris’ Photon/ Captain Maria Rambeau, and Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel/ Kamala Khan.

Fans were thrilled at the announcement and excited to order and add all the figures to their collections. Well, almost all of the figures. Marvel fans did love the accurate portrayal of Brie Larson and Teyonah Parris, but were a little taken aback by the design of Vellani’s face.

Take a look at them side by side. What do you think?

Here are some Twitter reactions to the doll. And these truly are just a FEW.

Yikes what did y’all do to Ms Marvels face?!

RIGHT? they did iman vellani so dirty with that

Guys…, c’mon…, it’s ok to reuse bodies…, they’re swappable…, but you can’t use a Dafoe Goblin head with a new hairpiece and expect us to just buy it…, you gotta get a new head sculpt on this asap…

That is NOT Iman

2 out of 3 of these are amazing. What did Iman Vellani do to deserve that though?

Bruh, that ain’t what Kamala Khan looks like!

Previous MS. Marvel face sculpt was great, but this one? Someone dropped the ball… the 1 ton concrete ball directly on her face 


The general consensus seems to be that Kamala Khan got the short end of the stick as far as doll design goes. I personally don’t think it looks THAT bad. Sure, the actress is much prettier, but doll design is hard…right?!

At least the designers killed it with Brie Larson and Teyonah Parris! Two out of three is pretty good.

The Marvels is set for theatrical release on November 10th. The film follows Carol, Monica, and Kamala as their interconnected powers have them swapping places all over the Marvel universe. The movie also features Samuel L Jackson returning to his role as Nick Fury.

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
