Rapper Snoop Dogg has taken on a new guise - as a doll.

After branding himself a gangster and a pimp as well as becoming a TV host and owning his own clothing line and record label, Snoop's now decided to have his likeness immortalised in plastic.

California-based SOTA TOYS, which has provided dolls for such films as Planet Of The Apes, Lord Of The Rings, Resident Evil and Star Trek, is designing the dolls, which will sell for $50 (GBP31) each.

Snoop inked a deal earlier this year (03) with VITAL TOYS and released two action figures - the SNOOP DOGG, LITTLE JUNIOR and the SNOOP DOGG, SNOOPAFLY dolls.
