The Shape of Water has been a pretty popular film in recent months, as viewers flocked to see the awards nominee --and now Oscar winner---in theaters. The movie features a romance between a mute woman and a river creature, and one company has capitalized on the romance by creating a Shape of Water dildo. Now, Guillermo del Toro has caught wind of the device. Unfortunately, the director doesn't really believe the dildo is an "accurate representation." Here's what he had to say:

I'm sure Dunkirk doesn't have that problem. I don't think it's an accurate representation. It's some form of fan art... I guess.

Whether or not the river creature's dildo is accurate, it's sure sold like hotcakes, as it has been sold out on Etsy since at least the time when we first reported on the dildo a few weeks ago. Guillermo del Toro admitted to The Wrap that he has seen the imagined version of the amphibian man's package, and in funny del Toro fashion, he included another Oscar winner in his comment about the dildo. (But seriously how twisted would a Dunkirk dildo be?)

If you haven't taken a full look at the dildo yet, the makers of the product have graciously revealed a look at it online, and you can check it out, below.

If that sort of thing looks pretty good to you, XenoCat currently has plenty of other dildos for sale. The one in question, above, is actually made from silicon, and it was made to match the coloring of the monster played by Doug Jones in the film.

The director also mentioned that he has thought about the creature's dick, which is why he knows it's not accurate, mentioning that the creature can switch genders. He also noted,

It's not explicit in the movie, but in large swarms of fish, they switch gender if they need to. I just wanted to have that in the design in my mind. It was important for me. But I didn't do sketches either in my notebook or on my bathroom walls.

It's too bad. Perhaps if Guillermo del Toro had sketched it out, XenoCat would have been able to make a more accurate dildo. Although, if Doug Jones had his way, the dildo wouldn't exist whatsoever. He previously noted there would be better outcomes for "action figures" than a dildo, noting he poured his "heart, soul, blood, sweat and tears" into the role and doesn't necessarily want to be remembered for "a silicone appendage that comes in two sizes." Luckily, after the movie's big Oscar win, I don't think that will be the lasting impression for The Shape of Water.
