Photos of Some Asian and Asian-American Dolls and Action Figures

Perhaps it's an East Coast thing, but Vanessa of Fashion Dolls at Van's Doll Treasures and I are both submitting posts about our Asian/Asian American dolls and action figures today. I was taking photos of my figures earlier - photos that should have been taken and been uploaded last month, but here they are now. More photos will follow.





From left to right and standing: Dragon Detective Chow, Mattel DotW Princess of Japan Barbie, Mattel DotW Japan Ken, M and C Toy Centre Power Team Elite Exploration Unit Skier, Aoshima/Skynet Ladies Mission Basic Infantry Kelly Jackson, Mattel StarDoll Fallen Angel 1, Mattel Rio de Janeiro Lea, Sears Holding Corporation Just Girlz Jade Princess, RnD L.A. Luxe Susie, and Hot Toys True Type 38 Asian.

So that's the identification of the pictured dolls and action figures.

Toshiko had her head down at first - sulking anyone? - because I had left her name off my list last month. (Also, we were having some trouble getting her adjusted to her new body - the Sinatra Barbie body. Alas, poor Jo is temporarily body-free now.)

What a collection! I'm rather jealous. I can recognize Chow Yun Fat (awesome likeness), Japan Ken, StarDoll and that's it, lol.

What a great collection. I'm afraid I don't know any of these so will have to check back for further illumination.

Isn't there a redhead Momoko doll too? Your Stardoll is the same I bought in Crete on my honeymoon but she got stolen together with all my luggage :'( Never got to Portugal snif snif

Vanessa said...

What a great collection! LOL to us posting about the same time. I had intended to do a post a story with them during Asian-Pacific Heritage Month. I was two months late. Better late than never. I don't know who everyone is. I do like that Chow Yun Fat.

Hi and thanks for your comments!

@Muff - isn't that Chow Yun Fat likeness good?* So you have three of them named ;-)

@Carrickters - oh, I'll be happy to share who's who. Thanks for the compliment, but these are only part of my Asian/Asian-American/ Pacific-American ;-)

@Male Doll World - Linh is right - she's seated. Yue Sai Wa Wa is not in this photo. She'll be in a future photo though. Thanks for your compliment about my collection: I loved seeing yours back in May.

@Lonely hearts - ah, I have just begin ;-) Thanks for enjoying!

@V. - oh yes, there are several red-haired Momokos. I have not photoed my remaining Momokos yet or my gorgeous apple red haired Susie.

I feel sorry that your Stardoll was stolen. Shame they did not leave your doll at least. But that is neat that Stardolls are available in Crete.

@Vanessa - I happened to catch your new post in my Blogger list before I uploaded my post. I had to comment. What timing, hey?

My Chow Yun Fat - ahem, my action figure shown in this photo that is - is by Dragon. There is another version of the gorgeous Chow Yun Fat mentioned by @lex of Toyhaven. Sigh. *Now that's an even better likeness.

Thanks, Jorge! Mariko of the GG is here although she's not been photographed yet. She'll be photographed before the weekend ends ;-)
