“I don’t think it’s an accurate representation," said Del Toro of the sex toy. "It’s some form of fan art...I guess. I’m sure Dunkirk doesn’t have that problem."
XenoCat Artifacts, a dildo maker, made and sold dildos inspired by the creature in The Shape of Water. You never actually see the fish man's penis so it's their own imagining of what it would look like.
It's 100 percent silicon, glows under UV light, has “ruffled, gill-like” ridges and a “wave” shape and has four piercings. The medium dildo is 7 and-a-half inches and a 6-inch circumference at its widest point. The small is 6 inches long with a 4 and-a-half inch circumference.
They sold all 20 in just two days. They plan on doing another run of 20 dildos before the Oscars.
Actor Doug Jones doesn't seem like a big fan either.
"With a light chuckle, I can tell you it’s not exactly what I’d hoped for.I’ve actually had several real action figures made of my creature roles in the past — all done in good taste. After pouring my heart, soul, blood, sweat, and tears into this romantic, beautiful, magical role, the last thing I want to be remembered for is a silicone appendage that comes in two sizes.”
