This Jean-Luc Picard Doll by CazzCraft is the sort of crafting I can get behind. It's tough to make a plush doll look just like a person, but CazzCraft has done a convincing job in depicting the Starship Enterprise head cheese.
The Jean-Luc Picard Doll by CazzCraft is 11" tall and is decked out in his uniform, which comes complete with a communicator badge and captain's pips. See other 'Star Trek' collectibles below.
