Asian-Pacific American DAFs List Delayed

The Asian-Pacific American (APA) fashion doll and action figure list will be published in two posts. First post would be manufacturers 21st Century to L; second post would cover M and C Toys to YNU Group. I am trying to decide whether to post photos separately - text and links in the post with the photos separate in another post. Hmmm ... Also, I am trying to decide whether I want to list dolls and figures that are specifically APA or if I am going to cheat a little by including Asian-looking dolls and figures that can become APA for enthusiasts wanting more representation. Sigh. Maybe my using the verb "cheat" answers my problem.

Barbie Look Previews from a Big, Bad Toy Store

Big, Bad Toy Store has some Barbie previews of the Ballet Wishes doll, the 2013 City Shopper dolls, and two new The Barbie Look fashions. The pre-order cost is $29.99 for each doll and $24.99 for each outfit. Expected issue date for the dolls and the fashions is June 2013.

Ballet Wishes has blond upright hair and what could be the Mackie face mold. Her knees might be jointed bend knees. Her arms seem straight, no bend at the elbow.

City Shopper 1 has brown straight hair and what could be the Mackie face mold. Unfortunately, she looks as though she has the Model Muse body as 2012 Barbie Look dolls.

City Shopper 2 has blond straight hair and what could be the Ana/Drew face mold. Model Muse body.

The new Barbie Look fashions are called Ski Fashion and Grand Ball. If you have not seen the dolls or the fashions elsewhere, you can find them at BBTS.
