Dolls, action figures, plushies, model kits, and other collectables are all welcome here. If you've got customising techniques to show off or just wanna share pics or toy news, this thread is for you! Or do you have some memories to share? Statues are cool too but there should be a focus on articulated things.

Here's some questions to generate discussion:
>What's your first vs your latest toy?
>If you're a collector, when did you start?
>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?
>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?
>What's the most expensive item you own?
>Waiting for a package to arrive?

So WonFes came and went, lots of official things and garage kits were displayed and I stole this pic off 4chan. This is apparently Fairyland's new vinyl body, I don't anything about the character but I like her design. Moe anime heads are very hit or miss with me but in this instance I like it.

As for something else, here's some Dark Souls garage kits by GillGill. Yes, they're 1/12. Yes, they're articulated. It's a dream come true because the Figma Black Knight is stuck in Good Smile purgatory and nobody else wants to make Dark Souls figures for some reason. I think Siegmeyer and the Elite Knights are reruns, but Artorias is new(!!!). Not pictured is the Dragonslayer Spear which I'm pretty sure was sold with the rest of the things on display, and they all cost too much for me to justify, not that I could get my gaijin hands on them anyway. ;_; I just want the spear and a shield for my Oscar.

I mainly collected anime figurines, but I liked anything that could be considered collectible, really. Vintage toys, ponys, Living Dead Dolls, LPS, plushies, porcelain dolls, etc.
Sadly I'm not really able to buy whatever I want anymore, so I stopped ~actively~ collecting things like 2 or 3 years ago.
Long story short, up until 2015 the US dolar (most collectible things are valued in that currency where I live) was very cheap. 100 dolars was nothing. I remember paying like 300 usd for 1/8 figures no problem. Then, at the end of 2015 we elected a new president and oh boy. The price for the US dolar went from like, 10 pesos to 45 pesos. So basically now everything is fucking impossible to afford. And if I can afford something, the price is so ridiculously high that I don't even think it's worth it anymore. Like, I could buy a motorbike instead of buying a single 1/8 figurine. I hate this 3rd world shithole lmao.

Anyway, the good thing is that most of the collectible things I own are very expensive now, so I guess I have a lot of virtual money, in a way. I mean, I don't plan to sell anything, but if I have to, at least it going to be worth it I guess.

I will answer the questions specifically about my anime figurines, since they are the most decent thing that I used to collect (well, I still kind of do, but I buy like 1 figure per year max)

>What's your first vs your latest toy?

First was 1/8 Ayase from Oreimo, (Thanatos Cosplay version) by Kotobukiya. And lastest was one Goku Black by Banpresto. Tbh Banpresto is the only brand I can afford now lmao.

>If you're a collector, when did you start?

I guess I started taking collecting more seriously when I was around 16. I always liked the idea of collecting stuff tho, and I intentionally didn't throw away or donate my toys when I grew older because I already tought about keeping them as collectibles.

>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?

I'm not really saving money for anything in particular, but there are a couple of cheap Dragon Ball figures that I'm planning to buy at some point. There are of course lots of figures that I wish I could buy, but I will probably die without even being able to see them in person lmao. So I don't even consider saving up for them.

>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?

Not really. I even bought some figures of series I didn't watch, just because they were so pretty. Still don't regret it. Specially knowing how valuable they are now.

>What's the most expensive item you own?

Honestly, no idea. It may be pic related, but I'm a little lazy to look up prices and to be honest I'm also very inexperienced with that, so I'm never sure where to search. I never bought anything on my own since it's a bit difficult where I live, so I bought all of my figures through facebook stores.

>Waiting for a package to arrive?

Sadly, no. Btw the last figure I pre-ordered never arrived and I guess the owner of the store I ordered from basically scammed me, but it's a long story so I'll leave it there. Never pre-ordered or bought figures that weren't in stock since then.

Sorry for the wall of text, and obligatory ~sorry for bad english~. I hope this isn't impossible to read, lol.

Also >>43389 that doll on the left reminds me a lot of Oda Nobunaga from the Fate series. I feel like a disgusting cringy weeb but I love military themed outfits, kek.

Can I discuss BJD shit here? I know there's an ANCIENT doll thread but it's from four years ago and this is a general, idk if mods would want it necroed if this is already inclusive.
So, anyone here into collecting male bjds?
I'm a poorfag student atm so I only have one (I'm redoing his faceup tomorrow actually…it's been two years so I hope I'm not too rusty) but I'd love to have a whole team of them someday lmao.
I'd love to own one of Little Rebel's boys someday, as well as several of Dollshe's (although I heard shipping from them can be a disaster wrt wait times?). In particular I'd love an Aramis, pic related, in a darker skin tone although I'm quite sad the rhythmos body was discontinued because it was so cute. Dollpamm's new male bodies also appeal to me, even if the naming pattern he has is iffy I can't help but want one someday.
I like keeping an eye on the market although I know it's going to be years until I can afford any of them.

>The price for the US dolar went from like, 10 pesos to 45 pesos.
Jesus, anon. Sorry to hear that. I never really saw the point in statues until I was gifted a Banpresto and now I can appreciate them as a nice piece of art and craftsmanship even if they 'don't do anything'. It's great you don't regret a purchase either because I have a few figures of my own that I've never done anything with besides check them out of the box (maybe that's a good reason to collect statues, hah). A good place to check an item's original price is MyFigureCollection, imo.

Yeah! BJD stuff is a-okay. I don't collect them myself due to the high entry cost and high chance of them becoming a pretty paper weight but I really like Soom's Idealian Kahn, it's a shame I can't even find him anywhere even just to look at photos. It's like he doesn't exist outside of their shop.

Speaking of doll stuff I'm looking for a 1/6 head to fit on an Azone body, preferrably with eye holes can someone rec me some? I don't like the Obitsu heads or the ones from Parabox.

4 years ago, when I got my first job at 16.
>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?
Some nendoroids of FOTM shows I got when I was new to collecting. They were in poor condition to sell (missing parts, no box) so I gave them away online. Just nendoroids in general, one or two looks nice but their cheapness becomes really noticeable to me when there are too many grouped together.
>What's the most expensive item you own?
A Kagamine Len DDS
>Waiting for a package to arrive?
Just this. I don't collect figures that much anymore because I feel the prices have risen too much for the amount the quality has increased. Also am running out of space.
I am more of a vinyl collector but I like looking at pictures of BJDs. I guess I haven't found the one doll that really speaks to me yet.

I hope the anon who collects Marvel Legends can post and rec me a bigger 1/12 or 7" figure, I want to customize it but all the characters I'm finding have a lot of… bits in the way? I need a tall male figure who's not super muscley without needing a lot of work to take off the original character's parts. If only we had more options for 1/12 male blanks that aren't super skinny or short teenagers.

>What's your first vs your latest toy?
I first started collecting one coin figures for stuff like Evangelion and the Tales games. The last figure I bought was the Megahouse Raidou.

>If you're a collector, when did you start?

Mid 2000s and 2013 was my biggest purchase year.

>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?

If I got around to selling the figures I don’t want to keep I have a couple older ones in mind. Besides that I haven’t bought any figs for a few years.

>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?

It’s not that I regret them but I have a couple figures like Jojo SAS that I’ve lost pieces for, or bought with missing pieces. I know that if I list them anywhere toy collectors are very anal about that sort of thing. Like someone left a negative comment about a figure being messed up when it was a sealed SAS I never even took out of the box.

>What's the most expensive item you own?

I paid preorder for that one Aoba scale by Max Factory, it just sits in my closet and I never even took it out of the box. Definitely was an impulse buy when I bought it and I haven’t tried selling it because of the size.

I collect Bratz dolls. There was this collector in my area who was selling her entire collection all brand new in box. So I got many that cost $100+ online for around $10 each. I also like getting bundles of used ones that have fucked up haircuts from their previous 7 year old owners and pen marks on their faces and fixing them. I've hidden them for years out of shame tbh but considering putting them on display. I love that they're having their moment on social media right now, the 2000s fashion being so in, etc..Hope it doesn't die out too soon.

I wish Marvel Legends would do some of the more obscure characters (and no, I'm not talking about "obscure" costumes for popular characters). I mean, shit. If they can make Boom-Boom and Cable figures, they can make Shatterstar. Is an original x-Force set too much to ask?

All of my favorite cape shit characters are too obscure to have more than one or two action figures, and they all suck. They've got really ugly joints, are made of shitty material, and have weird handjob-fists.

I've honestly considered just using Blender to make a model and have it 3D-printed. I'm not an amazing artist, but shit, I could do better than this. For your purposes, I think you should 3D print the additional accessories.

Thank you for making this thread, OP! I tried to make something like this like a year ago but it bombed. Wrong time and OP that could use more love (I haven't browsed /toy/ even once when I made the thread, so I approached it from the wrong side).

Anyway, let's get to the questions!

>What's your first vs your latest toy?

I have no idea as I had too many firsts. Are we talking dolls, anime figures, vintage My Little Pony? What comes to my mind is a Playarts Aerith figure (the first one, based on FFVII), which is pretty special for me. I sold my Naruto manga in order to buy her, cause I had zero pocket allowance. My parents were against the idea (it was the beginning of our financial issues), but I really wanted her and I am glad she's still with me. I need to buy a Cloud figure to keep her company!
The latest one that I purchased is a Princess Ai figure. I loved that manga as a teen and still do. I remember drooling all over pics of PA figures and dolls. I can't wait till she arrives, even though she's not a very high quality figurine. Not sure if I should unbox her or keep her sealed.

>If you're a collector, when did you start?

I've always been one, as a kid I was always trying to get other kids to trade with me so I could get their beautiful Barbie dolls or Happy Meal figurines of Disney Princesses. The day a friend decided to trade with me for her chibi figures of Sailor Moon I was crazy happy. I wish I haven't lost them!
When I was thirteen I started collecting MLP and cheap gacha anime figures that I could buy at conventions.
I also collect fashion dolls (though I want to give up part of my collection), Furbies and other adorable/aesthetic toys (like the Zelfs - I wish the brand didn't get killed by the Trolls franchise, they were so much cuter).

>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?

I am the L2 Elf figure sperg from the merch thread, so I already bought the one figure I've been obsessing about.

>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?

Probably some cheap trash like a Hetalia One Coin figure (I didn't even like Hetalia, just wanted to join a friend in the fun).

>What's the most expensive item you own?

My BJD was pretty expensive when I bought him, but he was still cheap for a BJD (made by a no-name company) and I doubt he is still worth much. I love him to pieces and want to buy him more clothes, as well as to learn how to style his wigs (I hate all the stray hairs, any advice will be appreciated).

>Waiting for a package to arrive?

The L2 and PA figures as well as two genuine G1 My Little Ponies.

God, I've been collecting so long, it's hard to say. I think my oldest is a tiny BJD. Latest thing to come in the mail is Snow Miku #1000 Snow Princess ver.
>If you're a collector, when did you start?

I regret buying as much Madoka-related figures as I did, I've been selling most of it off.

The funny thing is that half the artists who penciled him didn't even give him a mullet. A lot of them decided to just give him long hair, sometimes with bangs (pic related). Then in the 2000s XFI just gave him short hair and it's been that way since.

Anyway, if you have Blender or Zbrush, there are "bases" you can download for things like action figures. All you have to do is add the features and design elements (just like those cringey old Deviantart bases lmao). Then you 3d print it, but if you want stronger material you can make a polyurethane cast.

Then the fun part, which is painting it. Airbrushes are your friend for that sort of process, but hand-painting works well, too. I've never done model painting, but my dad and brother have. They say that the little pots they sell at hobby stores work best. I imagine you'd probably also have to prime the figure.

No. 43419

Seems like the thread is going steady. I'd like to post some actual news/content but for now I'm just glad you guys are keeping it alive. I don't see why doll faceups would shit up the thread, hearing about what you do with them is useful since the same materials can be used to customise other things. Also I'm hoping we get anons who make dioramas to stick around.

Nice faceups, I especially like the one in the middle. Good job!

That actually looks nice, you can never go wrong with ponytails. Imagine having enough hair left over to make a random braid out of it, baldies are seething

I have Blender, I think in my few hours of playing around I know that the X button does something lmao. I was actually thinking of printing my Skyrim character's head and putting it on pic related because the facework is already done (but I think that involves resizing and making it print ready which is ???). Then I'd paint the details in gold to look like the older TES ebony armours.

I was an avoid collector as a kid (I was sort of spoiled lol).

I loved Calico Critters. I had a pretty nice collection of the rabbits going. I had a set very similar to pic related, but with rabbits and bears instead of dogs. I had to sell them off for college expenses. It's the kind of thing I would love to collect when I get old. I love the idea of a nice little china cupboard with a bunch of Calico Critters in it.

The other day, I was picking up groceries at Walmart and I saw an aisle with Calico Critters out of the corner of my eye. I got really wistful, and I came close to just buying one of the little blind-bags.

I had no idea they were called Calico Critters in the US, I've always known them as Sylvanian Families. Interestingly it seems to be more to do with licensing legalities than a deliberate Americanised rebranding.

Nayrt but seeing Dollightful's videos has got me interested in face ups too, I feel way too old for it but I'm excited. I bought some cheap MH heads online to practice on before I ruin a real doll but I'm still researching sealants.

Ugh I’m trying to shop for doll eyes but I’m getting really confused at the unreliable scaling on AliExpress. While I haven’t bought it yet I’m looking at this head to put on a Pure Neemo which apparently takes 11x8mm oval eyes (or 10x7) and the irises are 5mm. Basically I can’t find better than stock eyes at this scale so am I SOL? What if I took standard round 10mm eyes (not the iris, the whole thing) and sanded it to shape? What do you guys think?

I was at a con and I saw figures for one of my favorite anime, Gintama, it Hijikata Toushirou. He didn't look anything like the picture in the box, he ended up looking like another character from the show, Yamazaki, but with a sword. I would've been fine with it if he had a tennis racket instead of a sword, but it's a clear fuck up.

I think smart dolls are meh, Danny never got around to making them 'smart' so they're just regular dolls where you could get way prettier sculpts for your money.

Depends on what characters, western or anime?
Only buy from Ebay and Amazon as a last result due to bootlegs and scalper prices.

Obviously check western stores first for merch on western IPs. You may also support your local stores and smaller online shops (but if it's an import item it'll likely be more expensive as they inflate the price to cover the cost of them getting across borders + profit).

For anime shit I know you have lots and lots of choices. First and foremost are the well known Japanese stores (AmiAmi, HLJ, 1999.co.jp (AKA HobbySearch), etc), you don't need a proxy service like Buyee to buy from those. Proxy services are for shops that only sell to their own country (obviously) which you'll need if you want to buy merch from Yahoo Japan Auctions. Mandarake is another Japanese online store that sells 'second hand' goods (a lot of stuff there is actually new, it's just been out on the shelves of a physical store). I know more to this but don't wanna type more in case you're not even looking for that, hah.

semi related but this just reminded me I bought a knock off in my own country for £33 with shipping pushing it to £40 when I could've just gotten it from Aliexpress, free shipping, for £20. Hurts.

I think the prices of more recent products have gone up a lot in the last couple years. Like really nice Alter 1/8 figures used to be around 9k yen and now figures in the same series start at 12k.

At least with Mandarake they do big markdowns on boxes with a small amount of damage.

RIP, girl. If only they weren't priced like the luxury import products they are but it is what it is. On the bright side I think the quality of everything is better than it was even just a decade ago so even the smaller, cheaper prize figures look really good. Banpesto's Q Posket seems pretty common if you like affordable big chibi heads, common enough that I got this Wonder Woman easily on a whim in the UK for £14 from a local store and I adore her. If you're UK like me, check out Forbidden Planet, but if you're US there's also BigBadToyStore. Personally I shop at HLJ because I'm willing to pay shipping for more niche things.

Seconding Mandarake as a good choice because of those markdowns, apparently Japanese are really uptight about box damage (and it's like a small scuff on the corner, stuff nobody notices).

I have been dreaming of this thread for so long. I have a pretty sizeable late 80s-late 90s Barbie merch collection (pic related is one shelf of tat) I don't much care for the dolls unless they're BNIB but I love the merch. My fave thing is probs a set of boxed Barbie and Ken walkietalkies. I have a bunch of G1 MLPs, some Jem and the Holograms stuff, vintage Polly Pocket, Moondreamers and a bunch more random pink and sparkly 80s/90s stuff. I started collecting about 2 years ago but had some stuff I'd held onto since childhood (born in 96). I don't really know why I'm so into the super pink girly stuff cos I'm nothing like that irl but I guess the visuals are just pleasing to me. Does anyone know of any good FB groups for collecting this era/type of stuff that aren't full of crazy nasty middle aged women??

I’m a very casual toy collector, most of my toys are just random things that catch my eye from Target/CVS/GameStop/etc and a few anime statuettes. I love every one though and I especially love blind bags. Plus a small load of stuffed animals, mostly Pokémon ones.

How do y’all display your collections? Currently I have one shelf in my bedroom dedicated to it, but it’s a mess and I’m hoping to get shelves with smaller/shorter levels since most of my toys are tiny. The ones that are still packaged, with the little hook to hang, I have up on a wall hanging from push pins. But my plushes just sit in a chair lmao, I’d like a shelf to put them on eventually but I don’t have room yet. I literally can’t wait until I have my own home and can display stuff in other rooms!

You'd be dropping a whole lot of dollary doos on a very small figure that isn't very articulated. It might be cute af but is staring at a chibi really worth that much?

Kek, anon. I know it may sound expensive as fuck for a nendo, but that's what they cost where I live. We have to pay a lot of taxes when we import things. It's ridiculous, but it's been like that for so long that you just get used to it.

>What's your first vs your latest toy?
I am a doll fiend (1/6 and bjd alike), but I also have a few action figures, plushies and anime figures too. Not really a collector (besides having a shrine for a character that I try to get all the merch of), as I mostly play with them, but oh well. My first would be a random Kurhn doll. My latest.. probably my newest Jenny doll. It's an extremely rare one so naming it would easily out me heh.

>If you're a collector, when did you start?

Not really a collector, as I said, but I first consciously bought a doll when I was 13 I think. Those were simpler times before usd conversion rates fucked our entire country in the ass.

>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?

I really, really want to get some Resurrection of Monstress figures, but they are quite rare and cost too much to ship here (like 5 times the cost of the figure itself, haha). They are objectively shit, but I am a sucker for camp and monster-themed things so… yeah. I also really want another Blythe, but the one I want the most costs outrageously a lot for what they are. Would like some more Ashley Wood figures eventually. Maybe a few more Play Arts Kai's.
The one thing I can't probably get ever is a Sasha doll by Groove, particularly Nuna. Or a Noix De Rome doll of Iwakura Lain. Both are extremely rare and you can't even get pictures of them really.

>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?

When I started, I bought a lot of bootleg anime chibis. They were the only thing I could get. Later on I found out I fucking HATE most chibis. Like, nendos/q-poskets are the ugliest shit to me. I have some chibis in my posession still, but they are original figures of the characters that don't have a full-size figure available.

>What's the most expensive item you own?

Probably a Serial Experiments Lain statue, picrelated. I don't get why it costs so much, but I guess it's because it was old and not made in huge quantities. It's really subpar compared to modern figures, but that's what you get for liking old anime. If we're talking dolls, that would be my msd bjd, one of them at least.

>Waiting for a package to arrive?

Yeah, waiting on a package from Mandarake. I finally got a figure I dreamt of for about 7 years. It's a shitty one, really, so I won't brag. It's also apparently has some breakage, but I bet I can fix it. Boxed new ones are outrageously priced for what it is and I got it for 1/10th of the price because some stuff is detached and the box fell apart.

>Do you only buy what you like or are you a completionist who wants the whole set?

The dolls/toys I buy have to fit a very particular aesthetic. I couldn't give a shit about getting a full set if parts of the set are ugly to me.

>Have you ever thought about where your toys will go as you get older? REALLY old?

I'm probably not having children, so to the dump?

>Have you kept your childhood toys?

Only one and it's not a collectible, just a beat-up stuffed dog. I wish I kept my oldschool Bratz doll. I never had any toys of value besides her anyway.

>Any toy/merch horror stories, as a kid or an adult?

Not really. Just a lot of dolls I had destroyed while trying to customize that I ended up missing in their original forms and that are too pricy/rare to buy again nowadays.
Oh. I remembered. I got Play Arts Kai Cloud Strife as a gift. I don't know what version since I am not a fan of FF7 in the slightest, but he was really beautiful. One day I came home to him not being in his usual place. I thought I misplaced him. And then I found a piece of him behind the matress. My crackhead boyfriend literally smashed him to pieces because I said something he didn't like. I still wonder how he managed. Kais are pretty sturdy.

Samefag, but. Some cheaper bjds are from 5stardoll, Angellstudio and such. You can literally google "cheap legit bjd" and people have combined lists for you already.
My favourite cheap company is Resinsoul. They have a terribly set up shop with worst pictures ever, but. The dolls are cheap and they are really well-made. They also offer a wide variety of skintones and would mix a custom one for you, including transluscent parts! They do mix-and-match parts of dolls and do minor mods if you write to them directly. The customer support is great and they do real good discounts for group orders (we have a group order in my country's bjd comm and get about 20% on top of the usual discount)
Resionsoul face sculpts are not the best really, they're an acquired taste, but a way to get a cheap bjd is getting a cheap body and making a hybrid with whatever head sculpt you like.

I love your figure of Lain. It seems to look very nice and not even for when it was made. Love the diorama! I wish that more Lain figures were released. Too bad that SEL is just a cult classic, cause I don't think we should expect anything new coming out…
Have you experienced Lain's diaries from the PSX game? They have been translated some time ago and they truly are something.

That Noix De Rome Lain is unnervingly cutesy.
I was pretty sure that below quoted page included a larger photo of it than what can be found while googling, but I guess I was wrong. I am posting the page anyway because you and some other anons into 90's anime and dolls might get a kick out of it! I used to browse it religiously as a kid in the early 00's. Wonder what happened to the author.
Most (if not all) picture links still work.
Among others, you can see early Utena merch

I wish I could buy a Haibane Renmei figure, I truly love this series and need to rewatch it soon. I miss anime like that! Plus, ABe's drawing style is truly special.

I relate HARD to your story with chibi figures. I find them shit but when I was a kid weeb they were all I was able to get besides bootlegs of Sailor Moon Bandai figures. I don't get how people can collect Funkos or even Nendoroids. They are so cheap looking and a terrible representation of the character.

I love that Lain diorama myself, it's really, really good for an older figure, but compared to modern ones it looks quite cheap. It's bare bones and minimalistic, which I actually like since the entire series is like that.
I've started reading the PSX translation a while ago, but for some reason I stopped and never came back to it. Well, not for "some" reason really. SELain is deeply personal to me and reading about her actually struggling with mental illness and treatment was too much like reading about myself and my own pain.

Noix De Rome Lain looks nothing like the character really, but I am a sucker for anime dolls and she's really cute. I have a Toynami Lain (guitar version) and she's a dream. I want to get them all one day.
A good website for anime dolls is https://shoujodolls.com/index.php/en/ they have a review of the Noix De Rome Lain.

I need to rewatch Haibane myself, but it put me into such a melancholic funk the first time, I am afraid that now as a much older person I would actually "get it" and it would be even worse. I had nearly got a bootleg of the fig in your picture before I really got into original figures, just because of how pretty it was and how much I love everything ABe touches.

Also there's like two pictures of this Lain doll I found, but I don't think it was ever released. A shame.

Congrats! They are really good! The articulation is incredible and the clothes are well made. My only complaint for toynami Lains is that they are usually butter-yellow in skintone, but oh well, they are Old figures and worse can happen with plastic.

Anons, do you have any advice on becoming less materialistic while keeping your most beloved posessions and ocasionally adding to the collection?
Yes, I am posting in the right thread. I can never see myself being totally minimalist and living without my dolls, ponies, figures etc. but I am tired of being a compulsive spender and having more items than I can enjoy. How do you stop yourself from buying whatever and finding out what you actually want?
Years ago, like most insecure young adult collectors I got memed into believing that the more you have the better, more real collector you are. I have developed a shopping addiction for various reasons and I am trying to unfuck myself. I still get triggered constantly into considering buying a doll or a furniture for my BJD…

DAE here face this kind of issue or maybe has managed to find a solution?

No. 45081

I've struggled with the same issue, and for me what worked was designating 2 shelves in my room to keep my collection, and not letting it spread any further. I used to have so many figurines all around my room and have tons of shelves dedicated to them and would basically keep them anywhere they'd fit but once I parcelled off all the ones I didn't like/feel a huge attachment to I had a small enough lot left to keep confined to one area. Now I have the mindset of "oh, if I get a new one I'd have to get rid off/stow away one of these ones I really like….." which has hugely deterred any impulse purchases. Obviously you can tweak however many shelves or whatever.

No. 45093

I donated 90% of my collection (plushies, figures, dolls, etc.) and feel better for it.

I no longer impule purchase random shit just bc I like it. The way I got myself to slow down was to set up rules like
>the item has to stay in my cart for two days and if I still want it it can be bought
>if it's too similar to something else I own then I can't buy it
>only n amount of items can be bought per month

No. 45115

First if you're a member or even lurker of any specific doll/figure forums or other communities like FB groups or whatever, stop checking them. I know it can be fun to connect with people who share the same interests but in my experience internet groups centered around any hobby that involves buying things is always filled with mega autists who spend an exorbitant amount of money on shit and the culture just encourages constant buying and hoarding. It's so tempting to want to buy something new and shiny when you see other collectors parading it around on social media, it's the whole FOMO thing and if you focus solely on your own collection it's a lot easier to avoid temptation. Learn to love what you already own instead of focusing on what you don't have and definitely don't compare yourself to other collectors.

Also I recommend keeping track of what you're buying. I keep a bullet journal and I write down everything that I buy for each month. When you impulsively shop it's so easy to fall into the mindset of "Oh, but this is just $12, that's nothing" but that shit adds up super fast. When you keep track of everything you bought it's no longer "just $12" but "another $12 to the $150 that I've already spent on doll stuff this month…" and you start to hold yourself accountable.

No. 45117

No. 45144

I tried to put some stuff to give away and realized how much I need to buy an extra shelf (that I've been planning for two years, it's not related to trying to stick all my shit somewhere). I realized how beautiful my Barbies are and how much they make me smile when I thought I don't care about them anymore because all this time they were stuck in a box under my bad and somehow I forgot how much I cherish them.

Wow, you are very strong, anon! I don't think I could deal with getting read of that much. I do want to get rid of stuff that does not make me happy when I look at it.
Thanks for the rules, I will try to keep them in mind! Currently I made a list for all the things that I compulsively want (with links), I paste them and wait to see if I still want them after some time. Hope it helps me somehow…

Guess I will have to leave the toy FB groups (that I lurk every once in a while, mostly when they pop up). I used to go to local doll meetups but had to stop as an abusive exfriend/excoworker is responsible for organizing them (she is infamous in the community because of her behavioral issues).
I feel sad about it cause I could meet a lot of women friends that way, but it was too uncomfortable with how many of them ignored/did not notice the organiser's toxic behavior. At least I don't have other people triggering my spending impulses.

You are completely right about how things add up, I am trying to sort this issue out.

I do not intend to clutter this thread with my issue beyond this reply (as I feel thankful to anons that gave me advice), however I wanted to talk with other people who are in the toy collecting community and not randoms that don't have the experience with the mentality that led me to my issues. As far as I understand, this thread is also about being a collector as much as discussing the toys itself. Take a look at OP's post >>43400. At least that's how I understand it, maybe I am wrong. Probably should have worded my post better.

I only just got around to reading this thread since anon talked about it in another hi hi. But I'm not sure how intense of a customization you're trying to do, cuz there's all kinds of molding on the bodies. We usually only swap heads and paint so I'm a noob. Some male bodies that kinda sound similar are these:

Still in stores:
>Endgame Hawkeye & Black Widow 2-pack, the male body is average, not super skinny and was made to suit any male hero in the movie.
>Ant-Man maybe, the Paul Rudd head is amazing.

>Everett Ross & Killmonger 2-pack, Ross has an average body but a rubber blazer.
>Any Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes fig
>Spider-Man Noir

Spider-Man Noir's fig has a shit ton of bits and a trench coat but he's taller than any other Marvel figure I own and not as super-thin super-muscley as the other Spider-Man figs. Also there will prob be new figs for the Falcon & WS show and the Wanda & Vision show, you might like Vision's or Falcon's body types. Old figs get crazy expensive, waiting for the new waves might be a better bet. I don't have any X-Men but their bodies are usually pretty comic-looking. There is also a vintage-style line thats always pretty cheap and any bits on them are really simple.

OP here, I’ve been away so I haven’t been able to post content but good to see thread is not kill. Nice range of toys too. Recently my Mythic Legions figures arrived so maybe I’ll post pics of those (female knights? YES.)

Good taste.

I say try the 1 week rule, if it’s in your cart wait for that long. Or maybe even monthly depending on how often you get paid.
And remind yourself about the things you HAVE to pay for (bills, food, toiletries etc). For example my hobby is not as important as a new phone for my mother when her current is days away from death, as well as some serious home repairs and replacing wonky annoying furniture.
I don’t personally see your post as off topic clutter but people are gonna post about wanting and getting toys here which is distracting from your goals to spend less.

What I want to do is mainly parts swapping and repainting because I don’t have the patience to learn how to sculpt or recast things. But those are some cool recs, especially Spider Man Noir and his cool looking coat, he might be the one. It was the first thing my eyes were drawn to on your shelf.

What is the general opinion on nendos? I have a couple I am REALLY eyeing up, cause they're so cute, but it's really hard for me to justify the price point.

I have like three funko pops, cause they're cheap but still cute enough to justify for me, but compared to the nendos they're ugly as sin. Plus the accessories for the nendos are extremely appealing. The bunny ears for the Link nendo makes me want to cry. But it's like, ~$50 for a piece of plastic that just sits there seems like too much? I did almost buy a sailor moon fig for $130 but resisted, and in hind sight I'm glad I did.

Because it would be nice to have a doll thread without other toys being thrown in. Not everyone who's into doll collecting is also into hot wheels or Japanese hentai figures or whatever else.

Nendos are much better than funkos because you can swap their heads around and pose them in different ways. I suggest getting a nendoroid doll or a cu-poche for the body because tbh, normal nendoroid bodies are fragile and annoying to fiddle with.

I will never in my life understand how funkos became so popular. they almost never look like who they are supposed to unless they are very unique like pennywise or Sora from kingdom hearts. they always seem devoid of any emotion or expression.

No. 47437

It’s probably because they’re cheap and easily available to normies who don’t get hobby shops or importing things, like getting a table from IKEA vs getting some bespoke piece from a Swedish carpenter.. I’d rather somebody gift me new socks than a lump of plastic that doesn’t even look good.

Can’t help you there but this makes me wonder how nendo quality is doing vs figmas which people are rightly beginning to shit on for QC issues and generally being cheap with figures being more expensive for less accessories. Good Smile also came up with a huge headed doll body which nobody around here seems interested in.

There’s no way around affording merch, you have to be insanely rich and/or spend 0 on everything else in your life. Like SailorTortilla on Youtube, she said she had a job in advertising but I think she has to come from some money because her merch room is unbelievable, I can’t imagine how much it all costs in total when one of those shelves has like dozens of things that cost hundreds each. I wonder if she has a problem but that she has a bank account that can take it, it’s more shiny plastic than I could dream of.

Well I’m tired of only having doll threads when I’m a girl who wants to talk about my action figures openly without feeling like I have to infiltrate a shitty /toy/ thread where there really ARE garbage hentai figures posted by guys like that Jasmine anon who found his way here.

No. 47447

Personally I dislike them because all the extra parts are a hassle to keep in check and I don't like chibi style figures in general as they are less interesting than original character designs. Obviously you don't share my point of view. Having said that, if you are going to buy a figure, buy a Nendo rather than a Funko. They are lazy garbage and sooner or later you might regret wasting money on them instead of going for the quality stuff. Maybe save up for a Nendo of your fave character. That way you will be sure that you really want to spend money on it.
IMHO it's a bit like buying a bootleg instead of the real thing. You might think you are saving a money, but the quality is not there which makes the figure worthless.

I would recommend Funkos only if you are desperate for a figure and your favorite character doesn't have any other merch. Even then comissioning an artist would be better, but if you don't have the time and/or money…
I am still salty that there are no quality Bojack Horseman figures that actually look like the characters and not sameface blobs.

Ugh, yes there are so many ugly funkos. Like I said, ugly as sin. Although I have the bulbasaur one and I love it, he has such a cute smile. Pic related.

But I really want a cute fig of my husbando and the nendo is just so much more appealing than the funko, and better quality.

One of the ones I'm wanting(I literally just want two) is actually by Good Smile so I like that style for sure.

I can afford it, technically, it's just justifying that amount of money on something that's basically useless and creates more clutter. I grew up with hoarder mentality and just got every little thing that caught my eye, so I'm wary of falling back into that. I'm mostly curious if anybody else has this issue and how others may deal with it? Does anybody else feel like these are things that they shouldn't be spending money on?

Totally agree with the bootleg comparison. And I feel because funkos are so much cheaper it's easier to buy a bunch of them, whereas having one or two nendos would make them so much more special to own. PLus it would be more difficult to have it get out of hand in regards to collecting.

No. 47650

I agree this Bulbasaur (btw great choice in starter Pokemon, anon!) is pretty damn cute and an exception to the rule.
I wish we could get a popular and low cost series of figures that are not chibi. Even if the quality was not great, it would be nice to be able to buy a cheap and accurate character from series that Funko holds licenses to.
At least in Japan you can get gacha, trading and Sega prize figures if you are on a tight budget….

Anyone else remember these? I know I still have mine, but I haven't seen it in years, packed away in boxes somewhere since we last were preparing to move. I remember how mad my mom was when I asked for him. I loved it so much; saw it at the grocery store. The thing was damn expensive too, $3.50. It sounds like nothing now, but that was over 15+ years ago and my mom and I dug up change in the car just to go to McDonalds. It meant a lot to me at the time; I carried it everywhere. I took it to school one day, only in the 4th grade, and was belittled for being too old in front of the entire class to be bringing toys to school. Keep in mind I was hiding it under my desk and not letting it distract me from my work, I just used it to calm my anxiety. She took it away and called home, made my mother even angrier; she tried to throw it away and called me a dumbass. I dug it out, so she hid it from me, and that's when it ended up put in those boxes.

>I grew up with hoarder mentality and just got every little thing that caught my eye, so I'm wary of falling back into that. I'm mostly curious if anybody else has this issue and how others may deal with it?
I have borderline hoarder parents which in turn made it really easy for me to fall into a collector hobby and overindulge. If I wanted it and I had the money, I would get it. So it seems like we come from similar places lol.

Honestly, a lot of it is simply self-control and knowing yourself. If most of your pointless purchases are, say, impulsive or something you do while drunk, you need to nip it in the bud when you feel the temptation. I ended up having to create strict guidelines for myself to prevent from overspending on useless shit. I followed those rules for a long time and thankfully don't need to reference them anymore, but it can be as dumb as "will this match your other collectibles?" to more serious "are you spending more than your monthly budget allows?"

Should you be spending money on it? Well, that's pretty subjective. Logically, Nendoroids don't really serve a purpose other than being cute. But there's nothing really wrong with buying cute things as long as you aren't drowning in them. After getting over my spending habit, I started having buyer's remorse over the stupidest things, so try not to fall into that hole, either. You will make yourself miserable over anything that doesn't fall under "necessities", which is a lot of stuff.

If you really want to justify it? Tell yourself you can sell it later if you aren't feeling it. Nendoroids sell pretty well even when they're opened, so don't sweat that part of it.

Mind if I ask where you're buying from? Because Mandarake has a few of the Link Nendos for a little under $30 and MFC has a few open/nib ones for between $30-40, some with free shipping. You can save yourself a lot of money if you know where to look.

I don’t care if Faye is ‘losing her pants’, she’s a good character, it’s a good if very sexy figure. I can admire how on-model it is and it captures the parts confident and sensual parts of her personality. The fact that mostly men buy these is what bothers you, not me because I can admire the characters behind these figures and I don’t mind cheesecake. I only lament there isn’t more beef and that most bishounen figures are too tame.

>I’m not saying it’s hentai

>There’s a hentai figure right there

And nah m8, it’s an older Revoltech, the joint cuts are too obvious to me and older Revos have weird articulation that I’m not a fan of. Her face also looks pretty off, not accurate. Usually I prefer articulated figures but if I were to choose I’d pick the statue. Also lol @ you posting that figure, you must assume I’m a male poster talking about her nipples like that and you could only search for that ancient Revo after I namedropped the character.

Thanks anon!! It was between Bulbasaur and Squirtle but Squirtle's smile wasn't as cute, haha. Plus if I'm gonna get squirtle merch it's gonna be the squrtle squad version!

We do seem to have limited options overseas, and the cheap items like gacha end up not being that cheap when you add shipping and duties onto them, lol.

You anons have convinced me, I'm gonna go for it! Don't judge me but it's Sasuke and the Majora's Mask version of Link. There's also a reasonably priced Vegeta fig I might get too that's not too ugly. Idk I find a lot of the dbz merch to be really ugly too haha. Maybe I'm just too particular.

Yeah, I think you've hit the nail on the head anon. I especially had a problem overspending on clothes until a year or so ago. I did the same thing that you did with the rules, and I barely buy new clothing now. I guess I'm just worried I'm gonna open pandora's box again, but have it be about figs this time instead lol.

But you're right, I don't want to deprive myself from buying cute things, because it does bring me joy. A lot of it is just making sure I don't go over board now, cause owning too much of it all would probably make me feel less happy about it in general.

I was thinking of getting them on tokyo otaku mode. They have the discounts, plus $10 off as a new member. The two nendos I want are $50 each and the vegeta fig is like $20 or something. With the discounts it comes to ~$100 before shipping, which doesn't seem too bad? Especially for new in box?

To stop yourself from overspending on toys, tell yourself to only buy one a month (or whatever amount of time you find more appropriate) unless it's one you REALLY want. To know if you really want a fig, wait a few weeks before buying it. If you can't stop thinking about it, it's probably a good purchase.

That isn't too bad depending on shipping, especially if you prefer NIB. But if you ever want to look into 2nd hand stuff, give Mandarake or MyFigureCollection a go. A lot of Like New (or even unopened) stuff for less than you'll find other places, though Mandarake is in Japan so you have to factor in shipping.

Let’s ignore them and post better content.

I like whatever this Revoltech line is called (can’t remember the name), they’re clearly supposed to be more like articulated pieces of art than play-proof action figures. There’s a dragon one and some shinto/buddhist gods which are really, really cool to look at.

I've heard that the water turns yellow like this when the toy has been exposed to a lot of sun, enabling the growth of bacteria.

Also, sometimes the water would evaporate to the point that the puppet couldn't move anymore.

one of my all time favourite characters has plenty merch but quite hard to find, especially at a good deal. i have managed to secure not one, but TWO!! figures for her, and i'm over the moon.

one is a general figure but the other is from the nanorich voice collection and i had never heard of it until now. all the listings i could find for her were pricy but i managed to haggle and lower the price for mine. i just hope the voice box works, i watched some videos of other characters speaking and it seems so cool to have a talking chibi!

i own her figma already so i cant wait to slowly add to my collection. she really is the best, i've never loved a character more.

if my friends like the characters then i'll give them as a gift, but if not then i usually sell it on. eBay is good, as well as any local anime sales groups (ie in my case UK anime sales) i'm not too sure about depop though, it seems more normie.

what is one thing you look for in a figure?

i feel there's no excuse for the bases to be plain on figures (not figmas or nendos)

i preordered a scale figure and i rarely buy those but i loved the character too much. the base is just SO boring and i feel it would work so much better if they had jazzed it up a bit.

when i look at other scale figures i own that were cheaper they're so much more interesting in both base and posing. SIGH. they could've done so much more with her.

>what is one thing you look for in a figure?
Intricate details and at least semi-realistic proportions if not from a highly stylized series. I love swirling super powers or nature like trees/flowers, expressive faces, calligraphy, metallic or detailed trim/paintjobs… basically very dynamic. I also look for figures that accurately portray the character, as if to pull them from the screen into the real world. A lot of merch in general just doesn't look like the character, or doesn't suit their personality. Pic related is one of my favorite figure designs, although I never bought it because I didn't have the money at the time.

Plain bases are fine to me if it feels like it would take away from the rest of the figure, although plain bases tend to have equally bland figures attached.

I do, but I only collect. I have mixed feelings about custom Furbies. They are often very cute and I am in awe of how skilled the artists are. On the other hand I appreciate vintage Furbies just as they are and I think I prefer unmodified ones. It's a bit of a waste to see a vintage toy remodeled because there might be a limited amount of those around (especially working ones) and I feel they should be preserved (unless the Furby was already ruined). I have the same opinion about G1 ponies.

I feel the same, I think it has more to with their design rather than size (as a whole); their pupil is too big where as the iris too thin and add to that the small one white dot that supposed to be the shine that reflects in the eye. In other words or tl;dr, there's lack of detail and the pupil is big void.

Which is why I like the latest doll which have yet to be released, they gave her unique details to her eyes which also gives her more of character

>I see these being super popular

Yeah, they keep getting new dolls quite fast

Looking forward to buying the lifesize Porg next month. I hope it will not get sold out before I can throw my money at it! I'm worried that soon it will be hard to get Porg merch since not so many was made in the first place and they were not featured in The Rise of Skywalker beyond a quick background cameo…

My gripe with them is the price because I'm not dropping $35 USD for a doll. I don't care about the blind bag shit so I wish they would just sell the doll already premade/clothed which would cut down on the cost.

I really like the Rainbow surprise dolls too but can't see paying $54 because the dolls are a blind box and come with two things of slime(that doesn't work) also wish they were poseable.

I asked my friend to lend me her doll so I could repaint her face and make her a new outfit so I made her a witch. It's not my first attempt but it's my first time using soft pastels. She is a Winx doll.
I would like to redesign dolls like this and sell them, but while I think she's adorable I know it's not high quality enough to sell. The problem that brings down the quality is my acrylic paint always leaves little bumps, for example her socks, eyes and little stars are all bumpy. Does anyone have any tips for this?

No. 70684

Apply more watered down paint in thin layers, seal and then repeat until it's your desired color to avoid bumps.

Can anyone recommend a 1/12 (figma-ish) male for customs? Even just the head? It’s hard finding a head in the right style, most anime figures have faces that are too pointy when I’m going for something (slightly) less stylized.
Might as well vent while I’m here, it’s annoying all the blank bodies I’ve found are so short. Body-kun, Archetype He, Sozai kun, they’re all about 14cm (5’5) or less which looks dumb when I want them in scale with my girls and they aren’t supposed to be half-pint teenage boys. The figmas for Fate guys are the right height but I’ve zero interest buying those and their faces are still doritos. I wish I knew how to sculpt or 3D print. Just give me something with a defined jaw and nose.

As someone who bought figmas back in the day when they were still going around 20$~30$ and came with shitload of accessories, don't do it! Paying 60$+ to barebones 10cm action figure with outdated single joints doesn't worth it. Try getting bootleg from AliExpress or whatever, it might be absolute crap, but still more worth than the outrageously expensive figmas nowadays.

I don't think her hair resembles Sailor Moon that much. She's my favorite one too, but I'm not a fan of their ridiculously huge and distracting earrings, it ruins the doll.

The new Miraculous Lady bug dolls by Playmates are great improvement to the Bandai ones. I don't watch the show, but some of the designs are good.

Twisty girls are nice, might grab one if I see it.

Cave Club aren't great as Monster High or Ever After High, but they're quite nice. I want the notPebbles and blue and purple haired one. I think big wolly Mammoth animal would be better choice than big T-Rex. A medium velociraptor would be awesome too. I wish all the animals were flocked…

Although they are, commonly known as TBL, people still see them as inferior and many groups ban the talk of fakes. Plus, as much as I would like to buy one of the legit customs (RBL molds and such) the prices can reach 1-2k while a fake custom can average between $100-500, depending where and who makes the custom.

Recently Na! Na! Na! Surprise arrived to my country, so I decided to give it a try and get one. The concept of combining fashion doll with plush is quite innovative, however the execution leaves much to desire.

The plush bag accessory is really cute and fluffy, I do enjoy it and found it to be a worthwhile.

On another note, Unsurprisingly Barbie/Mattel' shelf space became smaller where as MGA/LOL OMG/NNNS grown lately and it was the case for two different toy shops in different districts.

The body got nice weight to it and have 5 PoA, all of which are swivel joints.

Annoyingly, the doll can't either sit or stand properly due to the hefty body and the badly designed swivel joints for the hips. I don't mind much the lack of ability to stand as much as the sitting.

As for the controversial bra and panties, I do not mind the panties (I think they're a nice touch) but the bra is too much and pointless considering the doll is flat. Unlike what many would claim, I don't think these are looking like kids but rather as stylized chibis; the wide hips are defiantly not a child-like feature.

The printed socks have grown on me and they're quite cute, though separated socks would be better.

Overall, despite not the best doll out there, it's definitely one of the most unique ones. If you want something slightly different than the usual, I would recommend getting one or two.

what's wrong with the bra? it's looking nice. Would be weird to have so detailed panties without a bra. As long as it doesn't show under the regular clothes it's a right choice. TBH I always hated the sloppy painted on panties on Barbie. Why are they even needed? At least here the doll genuinely looks better with the painted on underwear.

>what's wrong with the bra?
The asymmetrical hanging long strings of the bow and again the doll being flat which make it pointless.
>TBH I always hated the sloppy painted on panties on Barbie. Why are they even needed?
Early Barbies from 60's-70's had actual fabric panties, then they switched to molded ones until the short period of late 90's-early 2000's. Afterwards, they went back to molded panties I blame Bratz for that

Ah yes, the limited storage problem. As long as you collecting without selling you will inevitably run into this problem. My personal advice is to try buying only toys you REALLY want and also avoid complete collections and instead try to collect from many different toylines to keep your collection varied, interesting and less suffocating.
>also I like Minna Moody a lot
She's cute too. It's nice that at least MGA keep making a few goth/punk dolls after Mattel killed MH for good. I hope LOL OMG will also get dolls like this soon.

These are pretty cute though they look a little too much of a mix of Hairdorables and La Dee Das with their face-ups. Though I do like that their legs are really muscular looking with flat feet, hopefully that'll make them easier to pose with out a stand.

On an unrelated note do you guys think that MGA will ever make fashion packs for the OMG dolls? I really miss the old standard for fashion dolls where you can get a brand new pack for the dolls you already have, especially since OMG dolls have their set style for each character.

When I look at them I'm so glad I no longer "need" to own at least one doll from each bullshit line being pushed. I am not impressed. I wonder how the kids will like them? That's the most important thing. The cavemen theme isn't that interesting or relevant. It's like all the other ideas have been exhausted by some other toy line.

>Toybox Philosopher

Easily hands down the best fashion doll reviewer; her attention to details and high quality photos were great. I'm still bummed about her leaving (tbf fashion doll market was in absolute shambles when she left; many doll lines died and even companies such as tonner) and focusing on fixing generation girl-like dolls.
>I check https://venivididolli.blogspot.com from time to time, but it's not the same
Same. I mostly know her from the time when flickr and livejournal were still relevant. She got an an amazingly huge and varied doll collection, but other than that her photos are still old 2000's crappy quality and her "reviews" are more of lazy show-off like most doll "reviewers". You should check her flickr, she has pro account and all her old pics are still there.

They remind me of Moana quite a lot with the thick thighs and round big-eyed head.
>On an unrelated note do you guys think that MGA will ever make fashion packs for the OMG dolls? I really miss the old standard for fashion dolls where you can get a brand new pack for the dolls you already have, especially since OMG dolls have their set style for each character
I highly doubt it, since each doll have too specific theme/style for allowing mixing and matching, the same issue that started with MH and began this awful trend (and that's one of the main reasons I found MH overrated).

>When I look at them I'm so glad I no longer "need" to own at least one doll from each bullshit line being pushed
How many failed doll lines did Mattel came up with since the death of MH and EaH? 4 dollines: 1. WWE - the average girl couldn't give less of damn about it 2. Wild Hearts Crew - outdated 2000's emo scene fashion with all dolls sharing the same color palate (boring) and having molded bras 3. Creatable World - controversial toyline that couldn't be sold internationally (e.g. Russia) and the wigs were garbage 4. Netflix Nu-Ra - neither girls nor the vast majority of doll collectors gave a shit. It's almost mind-blowing how despite that, plus losing the DC license and Barbie doing bad, Mattel haven't gone completely bankrupt and refused Hasbro' offer to buy them twice (thank goodness)!

I completely agree the dolls are passable, tbh I'm more interested in the female T-Rex from the line and after I found out she isn't being sold with a doll I want her even more! The fact a side animal is more appealing than the main dolls in the line really shows how bad it is…

>The cavemen theme isn't that interesting or relevant

Mattel tried to go with good ol' Flintstones feeling (Emberly "NotPebbles") combining 80's-90's bright colors, but how many kids today even know about the Flintstones >how do you do fellow kids.jepg

IMHO it's not a bad idea in general (it's rather quite unique for fashion doll line out of all things), but the execution is definitely bad. Foremost, they should have downsized the scale to 5.5" inch like original She-Ra to allow world building aka, vehicles playsets which are now, sadly, a thing of the past/limited to Lego and Playmobil. Not to mention it's would've made the paper-thin clothes forgivable. Second, they should've gone with edgier look like tribal tattoos and bone piercings, giving it more caveman/primitive feel to it and making it cooler.

Anon, I am
and I want to say that I like and respect you. You seem like one cool dollsperg with all your knowledge and opinions.
Are there any other places to discuss dolls among female collectors? Some time ago I run into an actual forum (I think it was called Dollieh Heaven or something), but it was mostly dead. Even though I am not as much of a collector as I used to be, I would still like to talk about dolls with others. I love this thread, but it's barely moving and rarely gets engaging posts like yours!
I did not know those doll websites/blogs, will check them out!
I knew something irked me about venivididolli but could not put my finger on it. It's true, her blog is truely straight from the 00's!
The Cave Club also made me think of Flintstones, but I bet that current kids don't know about that and wouldn't care. I feel like this line will fail, but maybe I am wrong (I'm surprised tbh that Enchantimals are still going! They are nothing special tbh).
Side note, but why are there two black/tan girls and no asian character? Unless the guy is asian, but I don't think so?

No. 97186

Thank you so much, I'm truly flattered!
>Dollieh Heaven
You mean Dollieh Sanctuary, I also know about a forum called DollDreaming (but it's mostly for Dollfie Dream and other big vinyl dolls), both are slow. If you want fast-paced places for discussion, I guess your best bet are facebook groups and 4chan (beware, lots of shitposting, asshole attitude and creepy dudes). Personally, I like it here even if it's very slow as I prefer quality over quantity and I'd like to avoid the whole inevitable ego-trip and drama involved with namefaggging

>I feel like this line will fail, but maybe I am wrong (I'm surprised tbh that Enchantimals are still going! They are nothing special tbh)

I will be shocked if Cave Club would succeed considering the harsh competition with LOL OMG, but maybe the lower price point will give it advantage.
Enchantimals still running?! Well, the cute animal theme with small animal sidekick is naturally popular among girls and Mattel most likely took inspiration from once popular Shopkins which also had molded tops (eew) and small sidekicks.

>Side note, but why are there two black/tan girls and no asian character? Unless the guy is asian, but I don't think so?

Probably because Asians care less about representation than blacks? I mean they're still way more attached to their origin countries than blacks and which have plenty of media and merch specifically aimed for them (The three main big/known Asian countries, each have their own fashion doll: Japan- Licca, China- Kurhn, South Korea- Mimi). I doubt there's an ill intent behind that from Mattel and they might've planned Asian dolls for the later waves. Furthermore, I heard Mattel plan to increase the number of black dolls (more shitty Black barbies without eyeshadows and blush, having non-bendable knees and wearing a potato sack just like the shitty white Barbies!) so they're more focus about that.

This was one of the best fashion doll line by Hasbro which isn't saying much since they had very few and most of them are garbage ccoughDisney Princessescough
It was way better modern iteration of Trolls than what they did with the Dreamworks movie.
>I wish I bought at least one when they were sold in my country waaay back in the day
In my country, we only got few of them and they were expensive so I skipped them and tbf fashion dolls were still great at that time so Trollz were nothing special. My favorite one was of course the purple gothic one, Onyx, and best version of her imo was the Glitter and Glam one though the second set of clothes were dull (white top tank and wide black pantes). I didn't saw that version in my country.
May I ask which one are you aiming for? Also, good luck anon, may the ebay gods be with you!

>I wish the line lasted longer, tbh a furry-esque doll line sounds really fun and has so much possibility
Same, I completely agree with you
To think it was designed by the original Bratz creator and was made by a smaller toy company entering the fashion doll market for the first time, what a waste. I feel like playline toy market really went down the hill and stale after 2012 as in general and not just for dolls; many great toylines died and Mattel' and Hasbro' dominance grew even stronger. It became completly rare after 2012 seeing smaller toy companies/new doll lines at Toyfair.

I've been collecting toys for a while now and I'm at a point where I feel like I'm running out of room but I still have tons of stuff on my wish list. I don't know what to do about this. I've seen collectors say that you should try to stick to just one thing/toyline/type of toy, but I just can't do it. I was collecting only Pokemon plush/merch for a while, but then I couldn't stop myself from buying MLP stuff and other random stuff I see and just buy because I want it. And I have a collection of more realistic wildlife stuffed animals too but to display them it clashes with the colorful/cartoony aesthetic of Pokemon/MLP/Amuse, etc. Does anyone else have this problem?

Because they have the most retarded marketing department that probably consist of SJWs alongside shit taste toy designers (Carlyle Nuera), otherwise how the hell you would explain their beyond dumb decision to make a controversial doll line such as Createable WOrld as if their some small niche toy company and not one of the biggest toy companies in the world who should be able to sell their shit everywhere.

Why are you putting doll collectors in quotes? Is that some attempt at an insult? It's a normal and accurate term. People that collect dolls are doll collectors.
>little girls appreciate beauty and quality as much as adults to
Bild Lilli became popular because it was the only doll of an adult women and not an child, which is why Ruth Handler's daughter loved it (previously she played with paper dolls). It allowed girls to imagine their adult life and not just being a mom.
Also what >>99317 said about current doll popularity.

Because actual doll collectors would know that unlike the filthy casualfags which are what the vast majority of the "diversity crowed" actually are and in fact they never liked Barbie until it began to pander to them.

It was also a factor, but not the only one and doesn't contradict my claim.

No. 99333

Ahhh, I misunderstood your posts. Now I see what you meant.
TBH we cannot say how much Bild Lilli's quality contributed to her popularity. Girls could love her even if she was cheap cause there was no real competition. It's true that kids absolutely DO see difference in doll quality. Only dumbass adults think that a cheap bootleg is just as good as a legitimate Barbie (I am not talking about someone not being able to afford a brand doll, just being like "what's the point of overpaying if you can get a doll for half of the price??? It doesn't make a difference anyway, both have the same purpose".
I liked the woke Fashionistas in the beginning because they were quirky anf cute compared to the bloated nightmare that the Generation Girl mold ended up being, but I see Barbie disappearing since the dolls are no match to all the colorful, gimmicky rivals.

Although there might be some truth to that, they were a massive downgrade to original Fashionistas and Life In The Dreamhouse (one the best Barbie lines ever) which finally gave Barbie an actual story and characters only to be immediately vanished and be replaced with random Barbie dolls (you're Barbie, everyone's Barbie!). Worst of all they stopped having click knees REEEEEEEE…and from this moment and on Barbie became worthless shit.
>compared to the bloated nightmare that the Generation Girl mold ended up being
Their fashion was still less tacky and they had BENDABLE KNEES.
>Not many kids will buy an alopecia doll compared to LOL OMGs and others
Not just kids, but actual doll collectors as well. Just compare the upcoming Rainbow High to BMR1959 which share the same price point;
Rainbow High
>Second outfit including second pair of shoes
>Insert eyes with real eyelashes
>Brush, Doll stand and two hangers for the cloth pieces
>Double jointed elbows and knees
>No pixelated face printing
And to add insult to injury they use the same lame "brand tags" trend, only that its actually executed well. How can Mattel even compete at this point?! In fact, I've seen knockoff with better cloths and face printing than current Barbie.

>The BMR1959 line is a hot mess
When Carlyle Nuera' menace would be stopped?!
>the Fashionistas have some cute dolls but the clothes are such cheap crap
It isn't just the clothes, look at their awful face printing; when was the last time Barbie had eyeshadow and blush? Where is that detailed textured softness? Instead you get that sharp pixelated retarded smile that stares into the void.
>I loved the fact that you could still get well-made Barbies, end of an era
The only options now are hybridizing from Ali Express or getting older Barbies.
>Are there any other traditional 'fashion dolls' that still exist?
All I know of is Integrity dolls, maybe you can find more on https://dutchfashiondollworld.wordpress.com/
>Love Bild Lilli
Definitely, wish Barbie would return to her roots being shamelessly attractive and beautiful instead of pandering to small group of attention whore freaks who never liked her in the first place.
>Did they just copy her head sculpt?
You might as well call it remolded recast; the body shape, the joints engineering is pretty much identical, with the exception of the shoes being separated and not part of the feet.

What exactly do you mean? As far as I know, it's just the Silkstone line.

>No one's forcing you to buy a damn doll
Yeah and that's why soon there will be no Barbies at all. The adult collectors are one of the few people that still give a damn about those dolls. Most kids have moved on to LOL dolls and other young brands, like the upcoming Poopsies.

I don't even mind the albino Barbie that much, but it's sad that Mattel thinks that tumblr pandering is the way to go instead of making quality dolls. Sure, make albino Barbies, but give them cool clothes and make beautiful and memorable dolls as well. Oldschool Barbies had cool attention to detail. Even MH dolls did not so long ago, what happened? I never was a fan of theor designs and series lore but I could at least appreciate all the different fantasy body molds, themed accessories etc.

I wasn't aware that representing skin conditions was virtue signaling but keep telling yourself that if it helps you sleep at night. You're complaining about a company marketing a doll line toward children with skin conditions like it's some sjw bullshit. They're a company. They realize that albino children exist and can capitalize off of it. They recognize that this doll might get new customers and want to market toward that audience.

Wonder why Mattel has not made an albino doll in the 80's, 90's or early 00's? Have A
albino children were not invented yet? What about fat girls? And why they still haven't produced a down syndrome Kelly? Surely children like this exist and play with Barbies.
You are deluding yourself if you think that social media and feminist criticism didn't force Mattel to go all inclusive. They made a curvy Barbie after years of feminist criticism AND because ugly AF Lammily beat them to the punch and gained attention for being a 'healthy, realistic' doll.
I can buy they are trying to appease adult sjws with kids, but not that they care about children that much.
Contrary to what you think, I'm not against diversity in dolls. I loved the Dolls of the World series, Kira was my favorite Barbie friend. But dolls have to be quality and beautiful as well. Mattel is clearly failing here and tbh has been failing since way before the tumblr style dolls.

I wish for DC Giganta, she would be prefect for this scale! Which characters do you wish for?
Hopefully, they will eventually make dolls at the height 12" and under as well, I remember Tonner had dolls in all kinds of scales and styles-so greater variety like in the past would be wonderful.
Wonder what "highly articulated body" means? Is it your standrad 12 PoA for adult collector fashion dolls like Integrity Toys or something like Barbie MtM? It would be quite disappointing if it will be the former.

I'm not fan of the Frozen-esque faces for the females either, in particular their thin edgeless lips. The boy' face is much better and decent imo. Shame they didn't extend the pattern on his jacket to his pants which look kinda cheap and dull. As for the colors besides the female eyebrows (that thick bright turquoise on tan skin, just doesn't look good), are pretty and cohesive. Another thing worth mentioning, it's great that they finally start to give the dolls normal-sized earrings instead those ridiculously enormous ones which are repulsive and disturbing.

Would love a Kylo Ren/Ben Solo doll as well but I doubt it's possible taking into account how big of a trainwreck the new trilogy ended up being.

Hope the actual doll doesn't look much worse than the promo pic. How did the already released HP dolls compare?
>You own genuine g1 ponies? Sweet. Can you show some of them?
I do have a small collection, yes! I don't have anything especially rare since I live in Europe (they are not as common here, or at least in my country) and I am a poorfag compared to the American collectors. I do love all my G1s a lot! I also have some G2s. A few months ago I was lucky to buy like 5 or 6 MIB G2's from a guy that apparently bought a warehouse in Netherlands full of late 90's toys (I also bought some oldschool Pokemon merch from him). The ponies don't have their backcards as they got destroyed, but they are still in the plastic bubble along with their original accesories (except for a pair of fabric wings or something, IDK what happened). I also got a playset MIB though it's not that great (it's a wedding dinner room or something). I love G2s, even though I wish there were more poses. They were beautiful, but could use some variety! Obsessing over G2 ponies as a kid is probably what started my lifelong obsession.
I will try to take photos of them! Looking forward to seeing the smallest G1!
>I heard someone else mention it too, I just hope Hasbro won't try to sue MGA for MLP likeness
Do they even remember about Takara MLP and do they still hold the copyrights? I know a few years ago there was a huge issue with Hasbro apparently losing rights to G1 characters except for Applejack (which is how FiM mane six happened). But maybe that's not an issue anymore since they are remaking the G1 toys? My head hurts, this is such a mess!

my bf's therapist asked if I am actually playing with my toys lmfao. She was a bit concerned I may be significantly emotionally delayed since I never stopped adoring toys.

This is so wholesome, I think I will do it with my BJD boy as well! He gave me an idea for a novel, but that has to wait until I finish the one I am working on now.
I hate the thing in the middle of their chin. Like… wtf???
Oh, those are great!!! I'm tempted to buy Alice (but I will probably not, since I am not attached to the character - the doll looks great though!) or Esmeralda - though it irks me how the clothes look cheap AF, the 90's Mattel doll was MUCH better. The skirt should use much more fabric, and the corset is poor as well!
A Disney heroine doll line was long overdue, but the effort is a bit hit or miss… Maybe they are budget dolls and I shouldn't be complaining that much? What is the price tag?
Megara compares even worse to the 90's Mattel doll than Esmeralda. I adore her unique face mold! The Disney Megara looks too soft and generic.

We have 3D sculpting and printing, I don't understand why aren't all Disney dolls are complete character sheet accurate at this point?! Do they to avoid making the perfect version so people will continue to buy their lame updates? Do fashion doll collectors/Disneyfags have such low standards?

>'consoom Baby Yoda' is such a meme
Poor man Gizmo
Gib Jar Jar baby mouse

I kinda dig that Millie (see Mattel you can make Millie head mold look good when you bother), but the dress reminds me of that cloth used to clean glasses. Also she's on that stiff model/Barbie Basics body which sucks, they should go back using Shani body for the collector dolls.

I don't like the black one face mold nor face printing. They should've use Mibili or even Millie.

The last Silkstone is cute, shame she is on that badly sculpted articulated body which completely butchered the beautiful Shani body proportions.

>Nice to see official feminist Barbie kek
She isn't the first doll in the signature line…I'd prefer a fashion doll line of female musicians/singers desu.

Goddamn anon, now I want to customize my Child as well! I have looked on Etsy and I like the most the legs with plastic feet. As you said, they are very expensive though (not to mention the shipping, sigh). I am considering buying just the plastic feet and combining them with baby thights as you said. If you succesfully make legs for your Yoda, please give an update! I suck at crafts but I am really tempted to give this a shot… It irked me that the Mattel Baby Yoda doesn't have legs, but the face is so wonderful I decided to ignore that (plus there is no better option tbh).

I wish Mattel noticed the issue and produced legs for Baby Yoda… or at least someone from China noticed the issue and did it, lol. I just want affordable and accurate Yoda feet!

Now I don't know anything about this doll or dolls in general but if the feet are so expensive, couldn't you try making your own out of clay?

I could, the problem is I'm terrible with craft. Could try until the feet are okay looking though. The problem is that clay is fragile and I don't trust it to withold life for long. Plus I would prefer the feet to match the plastic head and hands… I've ordered the baby thighs for now and I will stuff them so my baby yoda can wear newborn jumpers (the feet are hidden in them, so the lack of weird toes will not bother me in this one case)

I have caved in and bought the cheapest pair of Yoda feet (pic related). I was planning to attach them to the thights, but now I have no idea how. I have realized that it's so easy to do that with the reborn bodies as they already have the 'tunnel' to put in the zip tie. Do you guys have any idea how to attach the feet easily to the thights?

I'm not much of plush collector (I do have some small collection from my childhood), as I grow up action figures and fashion dolls became my top priorities while plush as at the bottom. My most "recent" purchase was few years ago, if anyone remember there was small trend of brand called *"Bush Baby World" by Golden Bear Toys (in the US it was called Fur Babies and was distributed by Moose Toys). They've unique and fun gimmick in which you put your finger inside a small socket in the back of their head and then you can move around their eyes and ears. I'm very fond of their eerie 50's toys aesthetic going with their face sculpts and eyes while still being cute! I got the first basic editions which personally I prefer over the later ones with flowery prints, "troll hair", etc. I'm not certain if the brand is dead or not; the website does no longer works, but I happened to see some new products (with even crazier prints, new eye shape, more accessories and even blind bag crap plastic figurines eew), specifically from a Russian site- https://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/156803803/ , https://www.ozon.ru/category/myagkie-igrushki-7175/bush-baby-world-147308005/ .

*Fun fact: in Japan it was called Gyoroppy and was distrubited by Bandai.

Cute! What plush is it?
>I don't collect toys
If you gonna start beware of that deep rabbit hole!

Turns out these cost 70$ which is a bit steep, I wouldn't mind it so much if the bracelet and socks/tights were actual separate accessories and not printed. Hopefully it will get down to 60$. I like these a lot more than the regular ones since their hats are removable and they have ears, such shame they still kept having printed jewelry and socks, otherwise they would've been perfect. Usually I would prefer bunny over cat and "gothic" look over cute one, but pinkXblack are one of my most hated color combinations and goes more with emo style rather than goth. Overall, I'd like to see more "ultimate" nanana dolls…what are your thoughts?

>I'm trying real hard to not order the Snape doll since once seller has imported it to my country. It costs like 150% of the regular price
You mean seller on ebay? Maybe try getting it from amazon US/amazon.com? They have international shipping so it might be cheaper. That's where I usually get Western toys from.

>i've never heard of these but they are so cute!
Yeah Liccas are amazing
>not to be tumblr but are there any ones with darker hair and skin?

That's cool then. Yes, there was subline in the 2000's called Neo-Licca which use 4th generation Licca body with 1th generation Licca head and there were few tan dolls in the line and very few *Licca Castle basic dolls. I've noticed that tan Japanese fashion dolls tend to be exclusives or getting regulary released once in blue moon which sucks. I'd love a tan Gyaru Licca going full on thot, lol in the new #Licca line as it would be very fitting to the JK Instagram thot theme.

>but don't want a blonde/blue eyed one kek

I get you; variety is good thing in contrast to diversity which are two different things.

*It's a theme park and museum for Licca dolls, they also sell there OOAK Licca dolls made in Japan and some exclusive fashion packs for Licca usually under the name Little Factory (for the clothes).

Snape dollfag here. I come from an europoor country that luckily still gets Mattel dolls in regular shops. Before the regular distributor gets them, usually a small online shop buys few pieces of the new thing and sells it for a higher price. So basically you can get the doll delivered in a day or two, but you overpay for it a lot. I will check Amazon, but probably it will not be cheaper than when the dolls hit. the regular shelfs before christmas.

Anyway, share photos with us once he arrives! I wish they made Maria or Angela figures. Love my SH2 girls. I am lowkey tempted by the nurse figure, but I am trying to stop buying so many pricey figures lol.
Fellow Kylo Ren sperg here and a regular in this thread kek. I own this figure and honestly while it's nice, for the love of god don't buy it based on promo photos. I preorded him and was EXTREMELY disappointed that his face looks nothing like the promo pic. You can see what I mean at 5:40. Sorry If you are aware of the issue and I am a dumbass, I just want to save you the disappointed. I am still waiting for an ultimate Kylo Ren figure that captures Adam's likeness and does not cost my monthly salary. Hope we get it someday.

I’m really excited for the new Gecco statues of Heather and Pyramid Head. Does anybody know if they’re going to be reprints of their original runs or new statues completely? I’m assuming the former but haven’t been able to find much info about them. I’m curious if their price point is going to be like the original (150 USD) or the new Dead By Daylight statues (360 USD). Probably going to be on the more expensive side, but I’d still be willing to shell out quite a bit for them.

Wow, these are pretty cool!

Any plushfags here can recommend me some plushie toy lines/companies? I would appreciate it a lot.

If you're certain the doll will arrive regular retailer stores, it's probably better to wait.

>do you have any other cute doll brands like this you'd recommend?
There are two which I never owned (yet) in hand.
First, "Mimi World", it's a Korean fashion doll which is basically *Jenny KO. You can find them on ebay.

Second, "Kurhn", she's an original (the newer articulated body is a remold of Momoko and Obitsu 27cm) Chinese fashion. You can find them on ebay or aliexpress.

*Taller fashion doll by Takara, now only sold as OOAK dolls in Licca Castle

And today's in Mattel latest retardation; Mattel saw HasbroPulse success and got jelly, so they decided to open their own faggy online store (Mattel Creations) for adult collectors. But instead of, at least offering new toys, they just made cheap clear plastic version of their overused playline toys, slap on it high price and call it a day. Even the most pretentious lazy "pop culture" knockoff indie toy garbage is better than this lazy fucking corporate shit. Mattel just keep going straightway to bankruptcy.

Yennefer-anon here. I have a couple of Dark Horse figures (the newish Yen one and a Daenerys one) and they're both…not great. They were about $40 where I'm from but they look, and are built, like those collectable figures that you get with magazines for $10. Although, the newest Yen one (picrel) is better than the Daenerys one - she has a super lumpy paint job. Luckily I got the Dany one as a gift, so I don't have to regret spending money on it lol.

Not really news anymore, but worth mentioning; Billie Eillish got a fashion doll by Playmates.

>I like that there is actual stitching, buttons, and different fabric swatches on this one. Nowadays dolls often come with printed-on clothing that isn't actually constructed in any real way. Especially the Disney dolls are guilty of it.
Besides Mattel and Hasbro dolls, most (playline) fashion dolls, especially MGA ones (LOL OMG, Rainbow High, Na Na Na Surprise) do have high quality fabric and sewn details.

She's my favorite one too (I love how both 80's and modern her looks are). I wouldn't go as far as saying the others being cringe, but they're just not as good. The cat ear one is probably nightmare to brush/keeping that hair style.

>They really lost it after losing the Disney deal to Hasbro
True, they became panicked and went full retard. That's what happen when a toy company get too addicted to licenseshit. It's weird and interesting that we haven't seen even a similarly bad reaction due to the additional loss of the DC license.

>because no one in marketing realized

I swear the marketing department at Mattel (at least for Barbie) have SJWs infiltrated and somehow convince boomer upper management that the loud minority in SNS are representative of their main customers.

The only advice I can give you: If you're using them for anything other than display, don't get the Persian cats. Their fur is made of some tooth brush bristle type material and it gets dirty IMMEDIATELY and is nigh impossible to clean. Also IMO the official Sylvanian house / play sets are a huge rip off, but if you get any, the camper van set is really cool, and comes with loads of really cute knick-knacks.

Mattel' distorted concept of fashion.

Big Wig is really nice too, but her outfit feels a bit lacking/something missing. My favorite one is Camp Cutie, but her light pink shoes don't match well with the rest of her outfit. Either way, I think I'm gonna skip those since I'm not a fan of LOL head mold (the profile is just too damn ugly) so I want to limit myself to few dolls as possible/ones that I extremely like.

>but it's colorful enough that little kids don't care

I don't watch these movies but it's frightening and sad to think people would dress like that even for a low budget movie.

>I like the one on the right in theory/product pics

Turns out it's even worse, not only she suffers from pixelated face, but also have bald spots…I think it's time we start to bet when Mattel will finally go bankrupt.

Though the promotional instagram pics gave me hope the legs might be bendable, they're indeed solid hollow plastic. And if it wasn't enough, they have ugly seamline in the middle to boot! I know it's a stretch but I'm going to blame Mattel for that, up until 5 years ago before the NuFashionista normalize hollow plastic legs, it was a clear sign of a dollar store knockoff doll that no sane company would dare to do.
As for the overall look of the body, it look like a slimmer Bild Lilli copycat it's yet another Bild Lilli knockoff, how exciting! which doesn't go very well with Licca rounded and puffy face…still ten times better than the mature body used for Stylish Doll Collection which look completely out of place. On another note, the classic lacy underwear doesn't go well with their modern fashion, although I'll admit it's a nice touch, I think a more modern looking one would be a lot better.
On the one hand, I'm happy that's the case with the legs since it wouldn't mess with my toy budget as I collect many different toylines (it just got released), but on the other hand, I was really looking forward to a trendy teenager Licca line and it's really shame they're all doomed to be lame because of that unless knee maybe in the future Takara with update the legsI wish regular Liccas had ball joint hips, goddammit.

Can someone recommend me some good plushie toy lines/companies?

Not mattelfag by any means fuck mattel nor much of a vintage toy collector, however have slightly experienced with collecting vintage toys and have fairly vast knowledge as an avid toyfag.
Thanks to adult collector faggotry popularity, lots of people being mostly consistent of greedy normalfag scum I actually saw a famous toy designer, Stefanie Clark Eskander, who admitted buying repro barbies to resell them high, fucking traitorous cunt who foolishly thinks toys are like stocks that you can buy for cheap and sell for high. Due to that fact, in some cases, especially for relatively new toys, the stupidly high pricing doesn't reflect the true proportions of supply and demand as it was made up by clueless greedy normalfag scum who automatically thinks popular toy equals high price without taking to account that it was mass produced and not that rare. The doll you looking for is an adult collector Barbie made 21 years ago dedicated to special occasion, while it certainly makes it somewhat rare I doubt it deserve more than 100$~200$ top and maybe even that estimation is too generous. Not a long ago I bought 90's playline barbie MIB and she cost even less than 20$! In fact, I've even seen obscure 80's toys MIB costing less than that Millennium Princess Barbie. Let those retards rot and say no to scalpers.

>Was there a rerelease, variant or what?

There are two additional variants: African American (as always) and a brunette. The blond one you want isn't even the rarest of them.

>since it's the one collector's doll I was able to ID on sight

Holy kek, this retard seller acts like he's selling MIB 70's Barbie.

P.S. Take to consideration that 90's-early 2010' Barbie have growing demand and becoming pricier thanks to the wasteland that is NuBarbie as more people starting to realize it.

>What fashion doll would you guys recommend for a beginner looking to get into the doll hobby?
Though it depends on your preferences, I suggest starting with cheaper playline just to see if you're truly into that.

>do any current doll lines do the rubber clothes thing?

There are quite few thanks to the "cheap" blind bag crap trend, the two main ones/long runnning are Capsule Chix by Moose Toys and of course LOL dolls by MGA. There also Itty Bitty Prettys Tea Party Surprise by Zuru, Secret Crush >>101023 and Poopsie Rainbow Surprise Fantasy Friends by MGA.

So people are unfairly inflating prices of the Millenium Princess Barbie? That's insane. I know people do that, but it's crazy how many offers there are with a bullshit price!
You make me want to buy some MIB Barbies from the late 90's/early 00's. Too bad that shipping to my country is almost always super expensive (if the doll is cheap) or there are barely any offers on the doll and so the few available options are expensive as well.
A few months ago I was looking for the Odette Barbie doll from the Snow Lake movie and hardly anyone was selling her! WTF? It's not even an obscure doll! Do you have any tips on how to look for 90's/00's Barbies on Ebay (unless there is a better page with worldwide shipping for that)?
>Not a long ago I bought 90's playline barbie MIB and she cost even less than 20$!
Please show it to me! I adore Barbies from my childhood, kek.
The altervista webpage is genius, I had the link once but I think I lost it… thank God someone made it. I remember the dark times when there was no webpage with complete info on Barbies that were not super vintage.
>What?! Can you explain what/who you talking about? Because I have no idea.
Lilee Jean is a wannabe makeup guru/'celebrity' and a cow from /pt (newest thread >>>/pt/802142). She is mostly known for her insane mother and all the antics that they pull, like buying followers despite being broke and acting like Lilee is a celebrity even though the farmers are the only people interested in her. Sadly, Lilee is also a doll collector and a walking stereotype of what normies think when they hear the term (an immature Christian horse girl-type who is unhealthily obsessed with Disney despite being an adult - to be fair, she's not into horses, but has the same feel)
You can see her collection in the picture. More dolls to be seen here:
And now I'm lowkey salty cause she does have some nice Barbies!

I don't even check Lilee's thread that often but a few days ago someone commented in reply to pic related how said it is that Lilee keeps all the dolls just standing and collecting dust when there are so many little girls that would love to play with them and the common idiocy triggered me lmfao. What makes people think that random children are entitled to adults' properties bought with their own cash just cause those things are toys?

Yesterday I picked up a parcel with the Poopsie Surprise QT! I haven't removed her from the box yet. When I do, I will take photos and post them!
I am pleasantly surprised how big she is - about as tall as adult G1 Ponies.

Dolls like LOL and Poopsie slime surprise are made by fetishists. No way a normal person would think that putting hidden lingerie and poop/vomit in kid's toys (that are supposed to be cute) is acceptable. I'd understand it if they were the disgusting stuff some little boys (mainly) are into, but fetish aside these would be your usual kawaii pastel rainbow shit aimed at little girls.

No. 113447


Agree, toys like this feel like tools for grooming little girls into becoming familiar with fetish shit early on before they know what it is. A decade from now, I can see an older creep talking a teen who grew up playing with these pressuring the girl into dressing up like that and taking pics for the wrong reasons without really understanding the darker sexual aspect of it.

Here is my new Cool Corduroy Barbie, IMO one of the best playline Barbie ever which also put adult collector and playline NuBarbie into absolute shame.
Having the great combination of the best Barbie headmold (aside Francie/Twist'n Turn), Mackie, with the best body mold Shani (which is beautiful modern rendition of the Bild Lilli body) makes her one the most prefect Barbies. Sadly the Shani body is one of the most underused body molds for Barbie, it was mostly used for adult collector Barbie and rarely for playline, later on it became the base for the Silkstone body which doesn't have click knees absolutely disgusting . I really wish Mattel would bring it back, just add nail details to the hands and feet and give ball joints to the hips and that's it, however with the current QUALITY I doubt it will be any good unfortunately.

>Too bad that shipping to my country is almost always super expensive (if the doll is cheap)
I know your pain…the Barbie itself cost less than 20$ but the shipping was a lot much higher.

Can you discuss the actual toys and not the drama surrendering them? I know it's lolcow, but this is a toy thread so please talk about toys.

So, few things to note; MGA take a lot of inspiration from celebrities which would also means immodest clothing…I found it amusing people are more annoyed at dolls for dressing immodestly rather than actual people which can be role models unlike imaginative toys.

LOL babies, despite being marketed as babies (which is wrong on MGA part) don't share proportions with real babies by having wide hips they're closer to chibis/super deformed character designs.

It's not the first time MGA came up with controversial baby dolls, Bratz babies were by far worse than LOL since their body proportions resemble real babies. However, I must say I did really want and still want Bartz Baby Jade, because I find her aesthetically pleasing like I find the first Poopsie Unicorn dolls pretty despite their fetishes because I can see beyond that.

As for the so-called plagiarizing of some instagrammer, copyrights laws aren't applicable to the fashion industry, only trademark so there isn't any legal problem with that.

Are there pervert toy designers out there? Yes. Are toy companies as a whole are part of some pizzagate tier conspiracy ? No.

It doesn't matter in the least if the LOL dolls are meant to be kids or adolescents, because they're made and marketed for little kids.

Also BJDs cost several hundred dollars and are fragile collector's toys, not kid's toys. Apples and oranges. They're made for adults, so of course they have defined sexual characteristics.

Can you explain to me, if the LOL dolls aren't fetish based, then what's the purpose of hiding tattoos, longerie, fishnets and bondage gear on toys for children? And why not advertise the hidden features so that parents who don't want their kids exposed to that stuff can keep it away from them? If it's so okay, why not be open about it?

No. 114596

The price and target audience doesn't matter and affect the sexual context, since if it's did than
>have MUCH more defined genitals
would had been true, which it isn't in most cases (yes, most BJDs don't have much more detailed genitals, but since you're not a toy collector, of course you wouldn't know). But even assuming it was true, let's not forget there are other far more realistic playline baby dolls that actually have very detailed and realistic genitals and yet there is no sexual context.

>Can you explain to me, if the LOL dolls aren't fetish based

I already explained but you two, didn't bother to read my entire post and only refer to the "easiest" argument you can counter. So let me explain it again more elaborately; "art mimics reality" - LOL dolls as other MGA dolls are heavily inspired by and influenced by pop culture and celebrities, so instead of venting your anger on plastic figurines, maybe do it on the source of it which is celebrities who dress immodestly.

>I'm gonna misquote you and add bunch of things you didn't say
"So what you sating is…"
>your baby in bondage gear doll
Bold assumption thinking I own any LOL (not OMG) dolls. Personally, I think they're overpriced blind bag crap and I don't think they're anywhere as pretty as Bratz Babies.
>so why are you defending them?
Because I think the accusations against them are exaggerated.

Now let's go back discussing actual toys and not drama.

No. 114597

There many other Barbie dolls you can find for cheaper anon, just look through the collector guide.

>but felt like it'd be ridiculous to buy one at my age…
You should never feel ashamed for buying playline toys, there's nothing wrong with that. Remember that playline toys are also designed and made by adult.
>it's due for delivery tomorrow
Good to hear! I hope you can shar pics

>I agree, but so many farmers will fight you on that. See: the Danny Choo thread.
Let me guess, they don't collect toys and are just there for the drama.

>Why do American toy companies always focus their doll concepts on 'tEeN gIrLs CaTtY'? How is that supposed to make the dolls more appealing?

Since the 60's approximately, teens have been considered cool by kids (especially girls) and add to that the whole subcultures of street fashion which just lends itself perfectly to fashion doll line. However, I do find it cringey and boring to the death having high school setting though as filthy weeb, I wouldn't mind if it was Japanese high school as the main setting (curse you Monster High) which the entire "lore" revolves around.

>Are they meant to be cross eyed?
I think it's the unintentional result of having bubble heads and inset eyes, but it could just be promo pics error as they sometimes happen.

>These are cute, though

Agreed, I prefer them a lot to their bigger counterparts.

>they remind me of the racers in Wreck-It Ralph

True, I didn't notice that.

I was really underwhelmed by this two-pack, it took so long to be raveled only to be disappointing. The Punk Girl look more like edgy Harajuku to me than punk and as for the boy…I was expecting something more in the lines of Bratz boys, but instead we got creepy baby face on fat NuKen-like body, what a letdown.
>It's like this company is incapable of being normal
I think it has to do with the fact that Mattel can easily sue any (successful) Barbie-like portioned doll…they sued Hasbro' Sindy doll for having too much resemblance to Barbie.

Neither of these points makes it okay to sell dolls with hidden bondage gear to kids. They don't understand the meaning of it, but the point is to normalize it so that younger kids start copying it younger and younger.

Adults who collect toys aren't the target audience for LOL dolls, children are, and children don't need to be exposed to it because outside of fetish scenarios, people really do not dress like that outside of the media.

That's exaggeration, but sadly it's the truth that girl toys suffer from way more controversies unlike boy toys as girl toys are expected more to be "educational", "no fun allowed" and "in-line" while boy toy can be bloody and gory and what not.

Cept we are talking about toys with images discussing their impact. If you wanna moral fag go to reddit.

Hey anon, mine isn't authentic either, it's factory/TBL. I really don't wanna drop 300 dollars on a doll that I plan on heavily mess with, specially considering that I may get unpleasant results, so I will only buy a Takara authentic when I feel pretty confident about my skills. Plus, tbh, I really like the variety of hair color and styles of the TBLs and their posability. For those reasons, a lot of custom artists actually use TBLs, pic related. This type of hair is fake only (I guess you could make your own wig for an authentic one though) and the body is fully jointed.

I got only one from the Dog series, though I wanted all of them.

90's-2000's Happy Meal toys were god tier, I had many complete sets but foolishly gave many of them to my nieces, not knowing the dark future lay ahead for toys. McDonalds noticed the influx in adult toy collectors and tried last year to catch their attention with the 40th anniversary Happy Meal collection, and while I did start to pay attention again to happy meal, the quality and the creativity of the 90's-2000's is just not there.

I wonder what happened with McDonald's toys? They used to be so fun in the 90's and early zeros. Nowadays even when they make toys from something with a potential, instead of selling cool figures or tiny playsets they make this big plastic crap. Like fake pencil cases, watches or some other bs. Even when they make dolls/figures, they are often of a poor quality. Notable exeption was the one Pokemon collection that was available during that Pokemon Go summer. Some figures were still shitty (they wasted Eevee), but most of them were nice. My fave was Totodile.

>I wonder what happened with McDonald's toys?
I have two assumptions: 1. Though the retarded who would've thought that eating junk food every day is bad for your health! 'Super Size Me' movie which made McDonalds to shift more and more of their resources into making their food "healthy" and advertising it as that. Although came out in 2004 which would mean the change should've happened earlier, I think it took quite some time as McDonalds have thousands of restaurants over the world to operate 2. I was unable to verify it worldwide, but in my country at least, we used to Burger King in the 2000's and then most of the restaurants got switched to some shitty local brand (that of course doesn't have good toys), so I assume there less junk food chains to compete with McDonalds internationally or perhaps that the gap between them got bigger despite both chains gaining more restaurants.
Third reason that can actually be verified, is that toys quality and creativity in general took a nose dive so the standards are lower for everyone.

>Supersize Me!
I believe it's factor too.
>because he lied
I didn't know that
Makes believe he is indeed a liar even more

Oh, I remember I had the two in the middle! I really wanted the others ones with the dress and the swimsuit, I thought they were better than the ones I had.
Not only those old happy meal barbies are better than happy meal toys nowadays, they're also better by miles than NuBarbie.

>Did you guys have any other favorite McDonald's sets?

I had many. Although I didn't keep most of my Happy Meal toys, I kept many of the catalogs. Two sets that do come into my mind; calendar set of the Smurfs which I even got it's display from the restaurant and a Snow White set that came with big plastic board that have the same image of the catalog.

>Lego Scala dolls

Fellow woman of culture!
Scala was the best girl toyline by Lego, fuck Friends, they're overrated shit that panders to boys.

You mean 4chan /toy/?
I think this new wave is a bit underwhelming, their clothes and hair styles seems very similar, either to each other or the previous wave.

I feel ambiguous about the boy, he's definitely far better than LOL OMG attempt at boys. It looks like he might have painted eyes, instead of inset ones which sucks.

On another note, I wish more RH dolls would have straight hair to brush instead of all those gelled curls.

Ah, I remember those McDonald's toys! I wasn't a big fan of the Snow White one though since I only had the well part and the toy was kind of useless if you didn't have the whole thing… It was still a lot better than most modern fastfood toys that I've seen.
The Smurfs I've adored too, but completely forgot about them until I saw your pic. I used to own Smurfette and Sasette. I remember seeing rastas and metalheads with the angry Smurf keychain hanging from their Jansport backpacks. lol
I also loved the later series of plastic Smurf toys with plush furniture/accesories. I remember playing with it a lot with other kids.
I also adores the G2 playset collection (it was all I wanted from my life when I was 6 lol), the Hercules toys, various Mattel dolls like My Scene or Diva Starz…The Dinosaur (2000) movie toys were also pretty elaborate. I miss those times so much!
>Scala was the best girl toyline by Lego, fuck Friends, they're overrated shit that panders to boys
Scala was amazing! You have no idea how much I wanted to own the house, as well as stable for horses. Those playsets were creative and so cute! I wish I could buy them MIB, but they are probably rare, expensive and it wouldn't be the same now anyway.
>fuck Friends, they're overrated shit that panders to boys
How do they pander to boys? Like with being more in line with normal lego? I remember people whining in the past how Lego 'for girls' is too different from regular toys. That was a good thing though! I wasn't a fan of the ugly yellow minifigures, but adores Scala and Bellvile. I adored the beach, modern life as well as early fairytale sets (before Lego started recycling ideas). The dolls were the cutest and surprisingly posable (just like Scala).
I like the Sailor doll, she's cute! The pirate also is adorable. I am not invested enough to buy any of those though.
I'm surprised to see that Cave Club is still going and even more shocked that Enchantimals is still a thing. I saw recently the giant Enchantimals dolls, really shocked that people are buying this stuff.

No. 117174

Decide the maximum number of toys you will ever own, or space you will allow them to fill, and stick to it. Decide now how you will likely cycle out toys e.g. give to charity if worth under X amount, sell online if over etc

No. 117182

THIS. Also think hard about the focus of your collection! I guess you sort of did since you want to collect MH, but decide if you want to own any specific series, character etc. and if it's likely for you to want to branch out to other dolls.
I would also recommend reading a book on minimalism (like Stuffocation for example) first and thinking really hard if you truly want to collect, even knowing what a drain on your resources it can be.
I am not saying this to gatekeep toy collecting, but I've always had the collector mentality and jumped in without considering the drawbacks. I wish I was more mindful back then and knew what I know now. Keep in mind I do not recommend going full minimalist retard as an alternative, but the general idea is worth thinking about! Feel free to disagree with my last point though

No. 117197

I also had a few from the hard plastic line, I had Sasette, papa smurf, the smurf with lame cube and the smurf with the lame tennis ball. I really wanted Smurfette and Brainy Smurf.

Scala was the only toyline I ever wanted to complete. I was blown away that I could own an entire kitchen set whereas I could barely get table and chair set from Barbie!
>I wish I could buy them MIB, but they are probably rare, expensive
I doubt that Scala would be that expensive, it was canceled toyline and one of the least liked Lego lines. As I've said before I've seen obscure 80's toys MIB that cost much less than you would expect, so it may be worth to track down if you want some.
>it wouldn't be the same now anyway
True, you won't have fun with them as you would've as kid, but at least you could own them now.
As I grow up, I noticed Scala had an ugly body so I don't want here anymore as much as I did as a kid.

>How do they pander to boys?

Their parts are interchangeable with regular Lego, so they can buy them for that.
>I remember people whining in the past how Lego 'for girls' is too different from regular toys. That was a good thing though!
Exactly! Why should girl toys and boy toys be so similar?! It's boring and makes them redundant.
I always thought of them as downgraded Scala (who had rooted hair, fabric clothes and removable shoes). The addition of fairy tale/fantasy element was great addition that Scala didn't have.

>I like the Sailor doll, she's cute! The pirate also is adorable

I like the sailor one too, but I think the mermaid one is my favorite because she is so different and unique, shame her accessory is a stupid sunglass. I would prefer a clam purse or something like that.
>I am not invested enough to buy any of those though
The new ones have removable hats which was something previous waves suffered from. I own two dolls from that line; I mean they're cute and all but don't really feel like they're worth their price point (I live outside of USA so it's more expensive). I'm not sure if I will get a doll from this wave, tbh I'm more excited about the upcoming single-pack teens versions which also have bendy wire inside.

>really shocked that people are buying this stuff

Cheap garbage for really young girls who don't know any better, bought by tasteless cheapskate karens.

>Really trying to tap into that mentally ill Sanrio sadgirls market

Licca had few collaborations with Sanrio. It will be by far more expensive than the shitty doll line l by Mattel, but it's worth it.
>controversial opinion but I wish My Melody doll wasn't tan
Agreed. Don't worry it's only controversial among the tumblrfags.

>Why can't we get something as pleasing aesthetically in the regular collector line?

Because Mattel are cheapskate cowardly retards who think they can gain profit without taking risk. I mean even these prototypes don't like premium adult collector quality and we all know, how toy companies in general tend to cheap out on the final product so I imagine the final product would be even more overpriced playline tier like this >>104622 .

I prefer Barbie desu, but I wish she had the same type of tail fins like Ken. Hers looks ugly, cheap af and not durable.

Ken headmold looks weird, I mean it rather looks like AA Ken headmold than white Ken so that's why I dislike him. Mattel should just go back into doing AA versions of each unique Barbie and Ken.

>The merman body sculpt is chef's kiss
It's the same body they made for that Batman and Superman action dolls that shelfwarmed. I noticed the hands look bigger than those baby fists they used for Batman and Superman. This body is so much better than the MTM Ken, they just need to add torso joint like vintage 80's G.I.Joe and thigh swivel. They could even use it for Max Steel reboot which would be awesome though Action Man is objectively superior! .

Just buy toys you really like and want. Don't avoid buying toys because they won't "fit" with the rest of your collection, that way your collection will be boring and not varied enough.

I think that Barbie is actually beautiful and very classy looking, but holy christ did they miss an opportunity with the Ken doll. His hair looks so off and doesn't match with the color and tone of his tail or the overall rose gold scheme at all. He looks like a really gay action figure from the 80's, I wish he had wavy long hair and maybe dark red or blue palette instead.

That's awesome you still own happy meal sets and in good condition! Are these from your childhood or new ones you bought?

>I have a bunch of the mlp ones I see if I can get the rest later

I would love to see the rest! What other MLP Happy Meal do you got?

>idk if this goes here

It does, just like Tamagotchi, don't worry about it.

I almost had a complete set of MLP G2, I didn't get the one with air balloon. I only kept the heart shaped box, sadly.
However, I do own some actual MLP G3 ponies.
Your set is almost prefect, I mean they can turn their head and have brushable hair, shame the tail is molded. I've checked and saw there were G3 Happy Meal with rotted both for the mane and tail, however they don't have swivel joint at the neck.

As for the Sonic set, I had the blue one (Sonic) and the red one (Knuckles) and I'm not sure if I had the yellow (tails) one. Even as a kid I thought they were lame (referring to mine), so I have no remorse for losing/giving them.

I found these, hope you found one you like - https://www.aliexpress.com/store/2300047/search?origin=y&SearchText=dog

Actually, recasts can be better quality than the official ones considering they have their seamlines removed for free like every Chinese-based BJD.

Yeah, they keep being scaredy-cat cheapskates who aren't willing to take risks and making the cheapest dolls possible.

>I think that Barbie is actually beautiful and very classy looking

Agreed, the only issue is her cheaply-made ugly tail fins.
>doesn't match with the color and tone of his tail or the overall rose gold scheme at all
Now that you mention it, his color scheme isn't great and suffer from being too similar 50 shades of bronze sorry for the lame joke .

There's another doll in this line that comes with a playset called, Hello Kitty and Friends So-Delish Kitchen Playset. I'm surprised Mattel made a playset (and a complete new mold, unless I'm wrong) so early for new toyline, even Cave Club haven't got any playsets yet.

P.S. The Licca playset is Licca Hello Kitty Suites Cafe and the maid outfit is a separate fashion pack.

New plush doll line, by Moose Toys apparently (I'm not 100% sure) called Dream Seekers.

>Every Dream Seeker Doll has a unique "Dream Mark" on their wrist that represents the Dream they Seek and their personality. Your Dream Seeker will keep your dream safe and wish for it to come true. You can write your dreams inside the Dream Catcher packaging for your Dream Seeker to keep and protect.

I think it's a really concept and enable the dolls to stand on their own despite being blatant Na Na Na Surprise rip-off. What bugs me about these dolls is the lack of head swivel (if you're going to copy Na Na Na Surprise do it properly) and zero attempt at giving them some sort of hands instead of these lumps of flesh like PPG which doesn't go well with the very detailed face.

P.S. Couldn't find bigger pics of Luna.

Another doll from Rainbow High second wave, there's only one other left which haven't being shown yet.

Overall, I like this doll and she's my favorite of the wave, simply because purple is my favorite color. However, as I've said previously, I think the second wave is not as good as the first one, having clothes and hairstyles too similar to each other and to the previous wave. As for this specific doll, I'm not a fan of the curled hair, it's boring, look exactly like other dolls and of course not brushable. Also, her pants are kinda ugly imho, the second shirt is boring and while the second jacket looks nice is the same reptitive jacket, Violet Willow had, being used for the third time!

I'm >>117501 and yes these are from my childhood. My mom gave me big plastic bags to put toys in so a large portion of my toy collection is in pretty good condition from being in plastic bags and in a drawer for safe keeping. Every few years I take them out to look and play a little and seeing this toy thread spawned that.

I've been busy and haven't looked for the rest of the mlp mcdonald's but I do remember they come with little hairbrushes and mlp pony themed scrunchies.

>What's your first vs your latest toy?
I've bought/collected cute things in general since I was really young, unfortunately my mattel winx dolls and some other stuff was given away by accident but what I collect now are NIB bratz dolls, y2k care bear stuff (including decor), anime figures, sanrio decor and a lot of stuffed animals (sanrio, tokidoki, peropero sparkles, AMUSE, estherloveschu, hamtaro, etc). think my most recent package was an orange AMUSE 16" hamster plush.
>If you're a collector, when did you start?
used to collect LPS, MLP, care bears, webkinz, ppg stuff, you name it i had it when i was a kid, i was pretty spoiled lol. moved onto anime stuff in high school and in college i got back into buying cute stuff especially when i started working.
>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?
still trying to get a full sized collection of y2k era care bears. the cousins are really hard to find in full size, i want bright heart raccoon and gentle heart lamb soo bad. currently own about half of y2k care bears in full size. pic related, i want the mattel enchantix dolls so fucking bad but they cost so much and thats OOB. if only. i used to own all the mattel winx dolls but not the charmix ones, the ones that came with their pixies. unfortunately lost those too.
>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?
i dont regret buying anything
>What's the most expensive item you own?
no idea, probably some bratz dolls i stupidly took oob when i was in middle school and would play with them. i do regret doing that, my mom even told me i would lol. i do have a few dolls NIB that i bought recently though.
>Waiting for a package to arrive?
currently waiting on like ten stuffed animals lol. for now i mostly buy decor and stuffed animals but want to get more dolls in the future. i want to start collecting monster high dolls.

Usually, I find any other advent calendars besides Playmobil to be worthless, but I found this one to be cute.

Seeing, how this dumpster fire of a year soon come to an end, here are some questions to concluded it, toy-wise;
What was your favorite toy/line this year?
What was your least favorite toy/line this year?
What was your best toy purchase this year?
Did the Corona changed/shifted your toy interests? If so, how?

>I wish I could time travel with my current money and somehow be a kid again and get to enjoy all this shit
We all do anon, we all do…

>It's stupid

Nah, it's fine and sometimes nice to hang on nostalgia/childhood memories.

Had some of the Happy Meal ones, I only kept the pink bear with the heart in the middle of his chest.

That cute anon! What other plushies do you have? Any recommendations?

>What was your favorite toy/line this year?
This is coming from a doll customizer, so I focus more on the sculpt and articulation of a doll. I don't have one yet but Rainbow High looks the most interesting, from the inset eyes to the interesting knee joints. Also, the fact that they let Culur design a line is really cool.

OMG LOL dolls are a close second, but the last of knee joints is a big strike against it, but some of the customs of them are really creative. (pic from a google search) And third is Disney Animator dolls, which, again, are really pretty when customized.

>What was your least favorite toy/line this year?

I don't follow doll releases too closely, but anything without articulation is meh imo.

>What was your best toy purchase this year?

Teen Bratz has a really broad face that gives a lot of creative liberty, and their big hands are really cute. I haven't tried it yet but I bet making shoes/feet would be pretty easy.
