2008 Rebelde Lupita and Roberta

I've seen the Rebelde Concert versions of the female members before but just decided to get them today. Found Lupita at K B Toys for $12.99 and Roberta at Family Dollar for $10.00. (I had gone to K B Toys first and although they only had the one Lupita, I liked her makeup and her hairline. Note: some Lupitas have low hairlines.)

The make-up on the Concert version of Roberta is less intense than the Schoolgirl Roberta. The Schoolgirl version has the overkohled eye makeup.

I had gone in the Family Dollar expecting to find older Barbies like the Birthstone ones. It was a pleasant surprise to find ALL three of the Concert Rebelde females there instead. Cheers for Family Dollar!

K B Toys is having a sale; buy 2 and get 1 free, I think. I asked one of the workers if she knew when the Rebelde boys would be arriving. She didn't know. Corporate sends stuff in, and the employees unpack them. Sigh. I'll check for Miguel, Giovanni, and Diego at the end of this week or early next week at Toys R Us.

I might have to go to the suburbs to find the guys ... the last time I searched for some Integrity Playline dolls (Janay, Alyssa, and Jade), I lucked out -- found them -- in a Norristown Walmart. Collectors have to do what we have to do to update the collection.
