An £850 toy modelled to look like Idris Elba has been roundly mocked by fans for, well, not looking anything like Idris Elba.With a bald head, ‘evil’ eyes and narrow jawline, the doll isn’t exactly the spitting image of the Luther actor who was recently awarded the honour of being named 2018’s Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. In fact, many believe the doll more closely resembeled Montell Williams or Romany Malco – or even Aladdin villain, Jafar. And other jokes that the doll is how other men wish Idris looked.

Is that Jafar or Voldemort? Certainly not Idris. https://t.co/rl9mr3GbW5
So this doll is supposed to be Idris Elba, but it really looks more like Romany Malco ??
