Recently, People Magazine named Idris Elba the Sexiest Man Alive in its latest issue, to the delight of his many fans. Social media was ablaze with positive comments and likes on the cover. But one recent merchandising effort by a British doll maker has fans crying “no.”

At issue for many fans of the actor is the fact that the doll looks nothing like Idris Elba and many would never purchase the replica. However, a lot of people shelled out the £850 (that’s $1,102.24 USD) for the doll and Empris, the online store selling the doll, is sold out.
