|Krycek's ready to stab some shape-shifters|
But even so, back when Sideshow toys released their X-files line we passed on them - the $65 price tag seemed steep when there were still $15 movie tie-in action figures floating around.
And aside from that, my sister isn't much of a collector - being more of a minimalist, a doll would be out of place in her house. But as a pathologist, the ghost of Scully has haunted her: When she finished med school, a surprising number of people asked her if she was specializing in pathology because of CSI; "No, because of X-files" she'd joke. The joke was repeated often enough that we started joking that it was too bad there wasn't a figure of Scully in scrubs that she could put on her desk at work and point to.

On the doll quality: The likenesses aren't great - they all look vaguely like the actors, but are all just a little off. The proportions are also a little strange, although I think if they had slightly longer necks and legs then they'd all look a little less blocky. That said though, the dolls are very well articulated and have nicely detailed outfits. My Krycek doll was still in his original box and came with a branded stand and some nicely detailed accessories.
