The obsession with the royal bride has reached a new level: Kate Middleton is now an action figure. American toy company Herobuilders has transformed the iconic wedding looks of Kate and her sister Pippa into collectibles. While the dresses are replicas of the Alexander McQueen gowns the sisters wore—Kate with her lace-covered arms, and Pippa in her slinkly, cowl-neck number—the dolls feature bulkier builds than the women's real-life figures. And although the muscular physiques are certainly a far cry from the sisters' actual waif-like body types, the doll designers were sure to recreate one feature true to the real thing: Pippa's much-talked-about backside.

These figurines, which are already in high-demand, can be purchased through The "Pippa" doll costs $49.95, and "Kate" in her handmaid replica wedding gown will set you back $189.95. (A version of the Kate doll in a standard-issue Herobuilders wedding dress is also available for $49.95.)

Some have criticized the Dutchess of Cambridge for being too thin these days, but a royal bodybuilder? I'm not so sure... What do you think? A fun transformation? Or offensive, unattractive reinterpretation?
