Boy George Dolls By LJN
Soft, cute, cuddly dolls

 

In the early 1980's we’ve all seen pretty much everything when it came to toys and dolls. From Cabbage Patch Kids to Glow-worm to even He-Man. There were even some pop superstar dolls that were issued by the LJN toy line. LJN Toy's produced the best pop superstar dolls including the Michael Jackson Doll and The Outrageous Boy George doll.

The Boy George celebrity doll portrays him as himself when he was a member of the Culture Club group. The doll was manufactured in 1984 by LJN under a license from Sharpe Grade Ltd. as the Color by Numbers edition. It is titled ” Boy George The Original Outrageous Boy of Rock!.” 

The doll is wearing a replica of the original Colour by Numbers outfit with an off-white linen jacket and pants with large red and black numbers on it, along (as long as the jacket) royal blue t-shirt, black derby style hat, ribbons in the front with braids, red boots with yellow socks. The doll comes with a blue microphone and a bright yellow Boy George doll stand, but the doll easily stands on its own without it. This is an extremely well balance doll.
 
 
The doll bends at the knees, twists at the waist, and the neck turns right and left.  The arms are fixed and only rotate at the shoulders.  The left-hand holds the microphone unassisted.

The Boy George Doll (Pro-type) 

IN 1984 when the Boy George doll was getting made there was a pro-type that is usually made with all toys and dolls that are getting produce by toy companies. LJN toys had a unique first draft pro-type done for the Boy George doll. The doll only stands 10 inches in height and the hair is a lot shorter with no braids or ribbons. The body is oddly shape making George look very BIG in size. We think that George did not like this version so LJN moved onto the new 12" dolls to make him more taller and slimmer. Take a look.This version for this pro-type is very rare and impossible to come by. One lucky fan did. 

Compare the 12" Boy George Fashion Doll to the 10" Pro-Type version of The Boy George Fashion Doll. Which one do you like?

The Boy George Fashion Collection

       
Ever wonder when you were a kid and had your Boy George doll if there were ever any additional clothes to buy for it? Well, little did you know LJN toys had a fashion series collection that was made for the Boy George doll just like the one LJN Toys made for their Michael Jackson doll.
 
We have some proof right here from LJN toys. The Boy George fashion line was already set for production with a catalog number given 7710 and 4 outfits were made. This fashion line had never made it into production and was later cancelled.

One of four unreleased fashion clothing for the 12' doll. Notice how the smock numbers were changed from just having red and black numbers to adding purple numbers and a purple smock top to wear underneath and those shoes that were added black sandals. Why LJN toys cancelled this?

Boy Snoopy Pro-type 
 
Another version of Boy Snoopy was this pro-type that was created using a white 4x4 box with a different photo of Boy George that was used instead of the photo used on the current Boy Snoopy doll. The tie was issued with numbers on it and not the Culture Club logo. This pro-type below was issued at toy fairs and was never made official. Just a little history for you. Kinda neat!  
 

Boy George Microphone 

LJN toys also had an official Boy George cordless microphone that was also scheduled to be released but was cancelled. Below is the CC prints for the Boy George Cordless Microphone. It was a 12” cordless microphone that you could use to sing along to the Culture Club hits that were played on the radio. This would have made any kid happy at that time.

Out Of Fashion...Never says the Boy George Doll! 

The Boy George 12" Fashion doll had some very good and creative outfits made by the fans to dress the Boy up for a night on the town.
