May Cookie and Lucious Lyon live on forever as dolls.
Emerging doll company Tonner-One World announced today via a press release a forthcoming line of "collector dolls" inspired by Empire's queen and king, Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard). Tonner-One World has partnered with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products to create the dolls, which will be developed by head designers Robert Tonner and Stacey McBride-Irby.
"Our beautifully-crafted dolls will immortalize the show’s popular characters, fully embracing the exquisite style aesthetic the show brings to the small screen," Tonner said.
"It’s a privilege to be aligning our company with Empire, a show whose cultural influence continues to shape modern television," Corinda Joanne Melton, CEO of One World Holdings, Inc., added. The dolls, which will be inspired by Cookie, Lucious and more of your favorite Empire characters, are being prepped for a release during the third season of of the show. FYI, Season 3 premieres in the fall, so that means these dolls are coming at ya hard like Hakeem's sexy chest in less than a year!
You can get more details about the forthcoming line of dolls here, but for now, you have to see the sketches. Cookie's fur coat is to die. And yes, Lucious is wearing a scarf.
