X-Men (2000) star Patrick Stewart hates the action figure doll made in his likeness - after it didn't even make it to the shops. Stewart's Professor Xavier doll was withdrawn from production after flopping after the first edition. He explains, "It doesn't look like me. It's a distorted looking face; it's just really bad. The first prototype that went into production was not successful and was withdrawn. So if you can go out there and find any first edition Professor Xaviers it already is worth considerably more than when it first went on the shelves because it no longer exists." Fellow X-Men actress Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, who plays Mystique in the movie, says her doll has become a top-seller amongst her friends. The beauty says, "They tell me when you squeeze my legs I do a karate chop with my arm. They've all created the Mystique dance when we go dancing. They do the movement that my action figure does when you squeeze it!"
