When it comes to Jessica Rabbit merchandise that I have NOT seen - the list is very short. While I certainly have an extensive collection myself, I don't own everything. Until a few days ago I thought I had pretty much seen it all - until I saw the Roger and Jessica Rabbit Pencil Sharpeners from Japan.
When I finally got them, both sharpeners were stamped on the back with 1987 and were indeed part of the original merchandise run just before the movie was released. Whoever previously owned them took extremely good care of them. The paint was not worn, the original sticker's were on the bottom, and they definitely had not been used. Each sharpener is a different color - Roger's being yellow and Jessica's is pink. Both also have the red movie logo printed on the sharpener, of course in Japanese.
The figures are made of a hollow, softer plastic secured on top of the sharpener, and both feature articulation. Jessica is sitting on top of the sharpener and features movable arms. It appears her waist might move also, but I have not been able to and don't want to force it. Her colors are vibrant and match fairly well to the movie. Her eye is a bit strange though. It is open really wide and might look a little weird. Roger stands on his sharpener and is articulated at one arm and neck. Again the paint is well done and not sloppy at all. Even his white fur seems to have held up all these years and not turned yellow as some older plastic toys often do. I have tried to screw the top lid off but they are on there pretty tight.
I really enjoy these pencil sharpeners. They are now top on my list. That's mainly because it's so rare to find Roger AND Jessica Rabbit merchandise that is not a high priced statue, snowglobe, or pin. It's items like these that I wish we saw more of.
