UPDATE 5:50 P.M. PST: Idris has seemingly responded with this tweet:
But despite the Twitter mockery, Idris Dollba is apparently selling like hot cakes. Emperis, the company behind the dolls, claims only two remain unsold — and that consumers have been snatching up the bald-headed action figure for over $1,100!
The company says it has been “making handcrafted fine art and fashion dolls since 2010.” Other celebs who have been sculpted into dolls by this “special kind of art form” include Cher and Freddie Mercury.
Sounds like quite the honor! But we think these Twitter reactions beg to differ:

This is supposed to be an Idris Elba doll. Instead, it looks like Ming the Merciless, aka Blax von Sydow. pic.twitter.com/GtNmBV01Gz
