Brotherly love in playscale: finding diversity in fashion dolls and action figures from the 1960s to now: Barbie, Fashion Royalty, Momoko, Susie, GI Joe, Power Team, Mixis.
Thanks for sharing. I haven't looked at Barbiecollector.com all year....since I'm not a member anymore. I like a few of the dolls. Not a huge fan of the dresses at first glance. Of course that could change after a few glances. I do like the earrings.
I haven't seen them yet either. The Asian is a winner for me, I like her sculpt. All of them look well done, especially their hair and sculpts. I'm not crazy about the metallic clothing but it would be useful for a nightclub /concert diorama.
Very pretty but I think I would prefer some articulation as well as the nice face sculpts.
Hi Vanessa, Lisa Neault, and Carrickters! @Vanessa - yay for your withstanding peeps at the Barbiecollector.com! I can see your Maya working any of those fashions and strutting with friends at a club ;-)@Lisa Neault - I like the Asian, too. I think the BC website said that she has the Kayla/Lea head sculpt. Also like the Pazette AA and the redhead. The fashions would pop for nightclub scenes.@Carrickters - groan. Exactly. I'll have to re-body them, too.
I've only seen IRL pictures of the Asian doll because someone auctioned one off on eBay two months ago. She's the only one I wanted, and should be here by Wednesday of this week. As soon as I get her swapped onto a new articulated body, I will post pictures on my blog.
Hi Jewell! You rock! Thanks for sharing that news. I will be looking for her on your blog. Yay, Jewell!
I haven't seen these dolls anywhere yet. I like them all, but if I get them, I'll have to re-body them all. Not sure I can match the skin tone on the Asian doll. :-)
Hello from Spain: fabulous new collection. In my country it is not for sale.We keep in touch
I wouldn't throw the Asian one out of bed but I'm not feeling the rest.
Hi Cindi Mortensen, A114Barbie, and Muff!@Cindi Mortensen - I hope you get them all. Jewell of Doll-Lightful has picked a donor body for her Asian Metallic; you could find out which body she is using ....@Marta - oh, I hope Mattel sells these dolls in Spain OR that you can get any that you want from another collector or a dealer.@Muff - lol, she's got a spicy, sassy look. I also would like like the Pazette AA and the redhead. Possibly ....
The last one I picked up was the City Shine Metallic Bronze; resistance was futile. However, I've stopped buying a lot of these dolls due to them not being articulated. Placing these beautiful heads on other bodies just doesn't appeal to me; besides seeming to be a pain to match skin tones, it just doesn't feel right (OCD?!). The Red look, however, is tempting...
Hi Troy! LOL @"resistance was futile." Rebodying can be a pain, but it's so neat when you've found the right match ;-)
Sadly I don't think we'll be getting these either. The style reminds me a bit of what '80s clone dolls used to wear, so maybe I can dig up one of those instead. :D
Hi Anderson's All-Purpose! LOL @" what '80s clone dolls used to wear" - true. I hope that this series reaches you. Just being able to see stuff sometimes is satisfying alone. I'll look out for some garish '80s fashions on your blog ;-)
