Edward Cullen Action Figures reports:

"Attention, "Twilight" fans. If you've long dreamed having a "fully articulated" Edward Cullen of your very own, well, now you're in luck.

Very soon, at a Hot Topic near you, you'll be able to get your hands on the brooding "Twilight" hero, in action-figure form, at least.

The Edward Cullen figure — currently up for preorder on Hot Topic's Web site — retails for $16.99, sports "beautiful articulation with movable limbs" and is decked out in a blue button-down shirt, jeans and a gray peacoat. It's 11.5 inches tall and comes packaged with an exclusive Cullen family crest and is also apparently "imported," though we're not exactly sure from where.

According to Hot Topic, the preorder runs until January 13, and the Cullen figures will be delivered on or around January 20.

Of course, if a mere action figure won't slake your Cullen mania (and if you've got significantly more cash to burn), there's also the limited-edition Edward Cullen figure, hand-sculpted by the folks at Tonner Character Figures. Retailing for $139.99, the deluxe Cullen figure is sculpted from the likeness of "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson (before he cut off his epically coiffed hair), stands 17 inches tall, and features 14 points of articulation. He's hand-painted, dressed in a T-shirt, jeans and shoes with working laces (bonus!) and comes with "rooted saran hair" (which is totally the best). There's also a Bella Swan figure (dressed in a peasant top, jacket and corduroys), but maybe you'll just want Edward to yourself.

The Tonner figures (set to ship this spring) are apparently just the first in a series of deluxe "Twilight" figures Tonner will manufacture. They're currently available for pre-order through the manufacturer's Web."

On a side note, Borders has Edward Cullen action figures as well, if you can't wait. (We're not calling them dolls, even though he is a doll!!)
