The Sam Riley celebrity doll portrays him as Diaval, the raven confidant to the villainess Maleficent in the 2014 Disney movie “Maleficent”. The Diaval doll was made by Jakks Pacific in 2014 under a Disney license as one of two dolls the Royal Coronation Collector Doll set that included a Maleficent doll(Angelina Jolie). A Beloved Aurora doll (Elle Fanning) and single versions of Maleficent were also made.
The packaging of these dolls by Jakks Pacific was designed to make sure you cannot get the doll or insert out of the box and back in again unnoticed. Tape, glue, and plastic tag fasteners hold everything from limbs, costumes, and the heads in place–no wire twists. The outside curved box is glued on the top and left side to the inside cardboard insert and taped in at least a dozen places.
The doll comes wearing a long black faux leather coat over a black linen-like shirt and black knee high pants over black boots. Around the waist is a silver and black plastic holster that snaps in the back. Underneath the costume the doll body has painted on black underwear and the face paint includes red scar marks on the both cheek. The Jakks Pacific Maleficent dolls don’t come with stands.
The doll is articulated as an action figure at the elbow, shoulders and hips. The knees do not bend. The head tilts and turns.
