didn't we already used the same picture in a different thread not that long ago??
>>10406807Nope, just checked the archive
>>10406651Do you not want people to post or reply to this thread? Please don't usa MGA dolls, it makes people not want to reply
>>10406916Baiting this early in the morning?
>>10405850I checked it out and they're still pretty expensive for the Pegasus Unicorn girls
>>10406916Better than any of Mattel's garbage line-up.
The most GORGEOUS barbie ever.Is this photoshopped? Zamn
>>10406921There's tons of listings for $22-$35
>>10406999I'm not seeing them, and the only listings are giving me options for blind boxes, not individual dolls
>>10405850thanks for the tip, anon. i didn't even consider that
>>10407020aliexpress.com/item/1005004760257309.htmlthis one has everyone except deer girl and secret girlby the way secret girl is a fish ghost wearing a sports class uniform, her upper eyelash is 3Dhttps://www.instagram.com/p/Cjy99n6tQ70/
dunno where this has been hiding all this time because ive never seen it in my walmart until i found it in the clearance aisle, but i am thrilled. thought i missed my chance to get these for cheap.
Just got Skulltimate Drac, gave her hair a wash to get the gel out like I usually do, but looks like I'm going to have to give her another and probably boil as well because her hair is still unpleasantly sticky
>>10406807Nah. RH is just so same-y that it seems like it lol. Only the olive and black ones from series 5 were used before.
>>10407764Oh that's an awesome deal, congrats anon! Might've been an online return
>>10406977Someone needs to shop those brand labels ot "blacked"
>>10408776Go ask the coom thread
>>10407207Different anon, but is there anywhere else that just sells the secret fish girl? Could not find her on aliexpress at all and dont wanna gamble on a whole case to get only one doll I like.
are pinypon ok?
>>10408864What are they?
>>10408776That says Calvin klein
>>10408851I'm going to assume the drop rate is atrocious because just like you said, there isn't a single aliexpress listing for her and only like 2 people have shown her on instagramthis is also highlighted by the fact the secret girl of the other bjd series anons posted about last thread, the Teenar School Sweetheart JK, has multiple listings (it's the matcha girl at the center)
Abby's body compared to Drac and Frankie
>>10409400she looks great, wish her nose was more of a soft gradient like in the promos and art, but that can be very easily fixed by hand
>>10409278matcha girl is 1/96, fish girl is 1/72. the fish girl has a really cute face but her outfit is nothing special so i’m not too bummed.
>>10409400damn we finally got a big thiccy, but nu abbey is kinda uggers. I'd like to see someone un-tumblr her nose to see if that improves it maybe. if not maybe a new character down the line.
>>10409485who else could they use this body on? I doubt they'll bring Marisol backmaybe Rochelle will also use the curvy body since real gargoyles are on the thick side
>>10409400i like her body type, look like she can share bottoms with draculaura. She will also be able to wear rainbow high clothes and some barbie clothes as well. i hope she also has a pearly finish or built-in glitter, i know G1 abbey yellowed overtime but her glittery icy skin was so pretty.Her nose is so ugly they should have used the same method for her blush plus why use freckle again it's such a dated trend.
>>10409485I think the nose should be an easy fix luckily. The rest of her face is really pretty. Her body sculpt might be my favorite of g3 so far. I love that she’s thicc and statuesque but still proportional in the shoulders and chest (I always think Drac’s upper body looks a little shrunken). Going to be very interesting to see what clothes she can wear for restyling.
>>10409400I wish her torso was just a wee bit longer. Love everything else about the new body, though. I'd be interested in seeing how a G1 head would look on it.
>>10409562>thicc and statuesqueactually now that you remind me, would abbey be the best g3 for omg lol Fierce clothes?
>>10409581we might see that soon since I've seen many Abbeyfags say in the comments that they plan to do that
>>10409400I wish her horns where more prominent
Some OC for this general.
>>10409400I hate the fat mold on Drac but for Abbey I think it works better, probably because her height helps. So she doesnt look frumpy and weird. Though I do agree with >>10409581I wish her torso was a bit longer. Its so small it's like the designer forgot to give her one.>>10409543I hope not, Rochelle deserves better than this.
>>10409561>i hope she also has a pearly finish or built-in glitterit's there, but a lot more faint than G1's, looks more matte as well, kinda reminds me more of rochelle's skin flecks than abbey's glitter, i'm hoping it sparkles more when catching the light or something
I want companies to mold genitals on the dolls. It's about time okay.
>>10410118MGA already tried that and had a whole child porn conspiracy put on them because of it.
>>10410127What does children have to do with anything? Fuck them kids
>>10410118Don't see a point for a doll to have genitals, the point is to dress them up and look cute. It be a waste of plastic. Unless you're one of those weirdos who wants to fuck their dolls. But if you want that so bad. Just go get a bjd. Most have genitals, some companies will even make it so the dicks can move or give you extra pieces so you can swap out the dicks to be different lengths/ stages of arousal. Super weird, but unfortunately true.
>>10410148>It be a waste of plasticNigga are you serious. Why are you even here it's not just about clothes what a fucking cope.
>>10410118Yeah, good luck with selling those in America
>>10410162> it's not just about clothesyou’re on the FASHION DOLL board freak, why are YOU here.
>>10410148>>10410165For lol dolls their penis is for peeing, the girls only have a hole without any details. Because of the controversy they kinda stopped doing boy dolls as much since most parents don't read the anatomically correct label.I find it funny since they're so conservative they would say boy doll without genitalia are trans agenda but they simply draw the line at doll nudity
>>10410162>it's not just about clothes>in a fashion doll thread
>>10410027goddamn, that nose is horridI like her overall, so I'm gonna get her despite it but I'm getting rid of that blemish asap
>>10409736/co/ would probably appreciate that more, we don't care about the show over here.
>>10410027If I cant find a decent enough one in stores I'm gonna see if I can make that purple a little more of a softer gradient on the nose, if not I'm just removing it entirely, it looks silly.
>>10410027Ugh I really wanted her based on stock pics but this nose just ruins her. I don't have the skill to remove that without also messing up the freckles so she's a no-go for me. I hate that both she and Clawd look so different from stock pics for some reason, for the worse in both cases...
>>10410553It's pretty easy with a q-tip, and if you get the ones with paper sticks you can just cut it in half and use the stick to get the tighter spaces to avoid freckles
>>10410460>>10410553it's a shame because her nose looked really cute in the promos, but yeah the production paint job is awful, like how they fucked up clawd's hairi'm just going to lightly remove most of it to make it more of a subtle blend, or remove it entirely and add a new gradient myself
>>10410571If you look closely, a couple of freckles overlap slightly with the nose paint though. I would almost definitely mess up the freckles at least a little. Maybe more skilled people could carefully avoid it or even re-paint the freckle back on.>>10410577Yeah exactly. I was really looking forward to both of them but now, nope. I don't understand why that's happening with these two only, when all the other core dolls look like their stock pics just fine. Doesn't give me much hope for future cores.
>>10410027I don't even get what her nose is supposed to be? Frostbite? Or is it like a makeup highlight?
>>10410636The pink nose tip is a makeup trend that’s supposed to make you look like you’ve just spent a bunch of time in the cold so you have a rosy/blushy complexion. I’m probably going to be taking it off and adding in some softer/more diffused nose and face blushing with pink pastels.
>>10410604Eh losing a freckle or two isn't the worst
>>10410027All the new head molds of G3 are such downgrade, they have really cute screening but the sculpts lack definition so they're too samey and smiley plus the stick out ears are annoying when styling the hair and doll
>>10410802It's the lackluster styling that brings everything down. There is cuteness in there.
>>10411057Never forget what they took from us...
>>10411139MC2, Flavas, and Liv should be higher, Moxie should be lower. Otherwise pretty accurate.
>>10410660>like you’ve just spent a bunch of time in the coldBut does it really make sense? The redness goes away with time. She's not in a cold climate anymore, no one else around her has that.
>>10411139Rainbow High should be top level, there is literally half a shelf full of them at target next to OMG and Monster High. They're not as obscure as Blythe.
>>10411202...because it's makeup
>>10411232Then it's even more stupid.
>>10411139Rainbow high should be the top as someone else mentioned. BJD should be down a tier, its still not normie, typo in 'gorgeous', the last two groups are very good though.I'm conflicted on Na na na surprise that far down though, is it really that 'strange'?
>>10411244That's makeup trends for ya, nose blush was and in some cases still is a thing.
>>10411139Feel like bjd and pullip are too high. They should definitely not be on the same level as lol omg. Those dolls can be found in any retail store meanwhile bjds and pullips are more niche and can only be obtained through certain sites. Also, why is RH so low? Like a lot of these are really subjective but some are super recent and currently trendy which belongs on the top teir.
Noob question: does "playline" VS "collector" have a meaning beyond how much the manufacturer/retailer tries to charge you? Are there mainstream collector dolls with delicate lace and such you wouldn't let your small child play with?
>>10411450"Collectors" quality is all over the place, sometimes it's near identical to playline quality just with a collectors label slapped on, sometimes it's a step or two above playline with unique clothes and hair with a lot of small detailed accessories, sometimes it's clothes that are intensely detailed and delicate, with real gemstones and precious metals. It's up to the collector but generally i don't think many people here want kids touching any of their collection, collectors quality or not.
I just massively fucked up my Howliday Drac's hair whilst restyling. I can do a partial reroot but fuck me I'm retarded.
>>10411139I'll never understand why Blythes are popular.
>>10411612To a degree I get it, some of them are quite lovely with nice outfits, makeup and hair. Others look terminally ill, or have weirdly shiny plastic
>>10411612they have some nice clothes but the faces are too uncanny and creepy for me, i really don't like their proportions either. i'm saying this as someone who usually likes more weird/creepy dolls, but blythes just don't hit it for me.
it's crazy how good mattel is at getting me to buy dolls from other companies with nearly zero interest in their own product. gotta figure out a new outfit for melrose now.
>>10412202I kinda dig the boots and bare look and I don't even like omg dolls
>>10412211i... actually really do too. naked dolls give me the ick so bad though. like going over to a friend's house or the thrift store and seeing them strewn about with no clothes and fucked up hair.
>>10412217I for one giggle at the concept of a nudist doll. Sometimes I just dunno what I want them to wear and they just stay bare or at least some cute undies.
>>10412202Serving honestly truly
>>10410118I think nipples are ok, but genitals are odd on dolls. Then Mattel will release shave Barbie's pubes playset
>>10411612The modified faceplates can look really cute imo. I assume it's the ease of customization, if you get a base doll it's not too hard to get blank faceplates to customize and switch out, so you're not risking the full doll. Their bodies are also roughly the same size as other fashion dolls so they can fit a lot of clothing. I think they suffer from the same problem as the BJD community where a lot of ppl make very ugly sculpts/dolls because it's just the "aesthetic".
>>10412686I don't know what the deal is with these faceplates though, I see a lot of very cute ones but when I look them up to purchase it's always like 300 dollars a plate. It's weird that china isn't mass producing plates with different sculpts since they're so popular, but you can buy bootleg default plates.
>>10412227>I for one giggle at the concept of a nudist doll.Fashionless doll.
>>10412697better nude than wearing mattel clown vomit.
>>10412750>better nude than wearing mattel clown vomit.Well, yes!
what are some dolls for a heterosexual male?
>>10412840Those WWE dolls from a while back? Wrestling is a male-dominated hobby and this line failed miserably exactly because of that.
rainbow high released a coming soon video for s4. victoria’s design looks so cute in the RH animation style!!!
>>10412987I miss them. The fit body is rarely used. Last time was ww84.
>>10412840Vintage GI Joe's
>>10411564what did you do? show photo
>>10412202ID oh the nude lol doll?
>>10413042It probably looks nice because they retconned the short eyebrows and the ombre lip look
>>10409400not to sound like a coomer but the booba is kinda crazy, why couldn’t they do that for elvira kek
>>10413042This show will always look weird to me, almost uncanny
RH project runway leaks
>>10413490Nothing more fashionable than an upside-down umbrella.
>>10413061That's a nice body, shame for the face tho
>>10413483>>10413484>>10413490Okay I want all of them
>>10413483>>10413484>>10413490Been a while since we've seen the OG character lineup
Dam I wish I could get one of these
>>10413483>>10413490really hoping the leaked orange dress isn't a replacement for the butterfly one. I would like that one.
>>10413165Accidentally burned a clump of her hair together on the side, it wouldn't be too bad but it included two of the black streaks on the side and I had to cut them off so it's pretty noticable. Just going to re-root new ones in.Though I guess a positive side is that I actually have a pretty nice idea for maybe replacing some of the pink on the sides with a lighter pink/white, or white fades, I'll think about it when I add the black back in.
leaked pnp sasha
>>10412334How would we justify nipples on dolls. Bad enough we have more modern western dolls with clothes sculpted on weird ass sculpted bras along with the obligatory painted/molded on panties.
>>10414151worry not anon, it's her 2nd pair of clothes
Upcoming Frankie playset
>>10414916possible leaks from that playset
>>10414923Not a fan of those puffy sleeves
>>10412840>dolls for a heterosexual male?You can buy whatever you want if you're an adult with a job. I personally like the Barbie looks series because of the better face sculps and monster high because I like monsters. Both have jointed ankles, wrists, knees ect. They're pretty much 12 inch action figures. You might be able to find barbie looks 8 at tjmaxx for 10 right now if you like pixie cuts. It's kind of a money dump of a hobbies if you're serious and not just cooming. Because you'll buy other dolls for outfits, fake food, furniture, etc so you can kind of set up photos and make fake scenes.
>>10415001Picture of 8, though 12 and 16 are my favs though. If you're just cooming though, just get a cheap 10 dollar doll at Walmart, coom, and put it in the garbage and move on. Or just look up a pic or something. Dolls are a money sink if you really like them. Like those Looks 12 and 16 dolls have the curvey legs and feet. A lot of barbie clothes won't fit them. So you end up buying other curvy dolls at 10 20 and 25 to get pants and shoes. You could drop 100 just to get the outfit you want if you have a vision of something specific.I got lucky and made a custom pretty cheap over the weekend. Got a new curvy yoga made to move for $5 and a barbie fancy with a rainbow side shave and made a new doll with the two. But the fancy clothes don't fit curvy legs so I'll have to buy a third doll to complete the look.
12. Very comfy face sculpt. All the looks dolls have 5 poa in the arms and another 5 in each leg. I think they also have a waist swivel. This is more than the first generation made to move dolls that only have 3 poa per limb and no waist swivel.
>>10415001>It's kind of a money dump of a hobbies if you're serious and not just cooming. Because you'll buy other dolls for outfits, fake food, furniture, etc so you can kind of set up photos and make fake scenes.This.It's so much fun to give them different outfits (and you end up with excess bodies), but you won't want to just treat a shelf like a bare fashion runway, so you spend more money on scale furniture and small accessories to take funny photos...
>>10415046>>10415001And God help your wallet if you get into the doll houses
>>10415046I do wonder how much crossover there is with dolls and playing with sims, character creatures, house creatures, etc. Like I'm not playing pretend with these things. I just have a vision of something I want to create. Like a specific outfit with this doll and another outfit with this other doll. I want to like recreate the 80s barbie rockers and then have them go to McDonald's. That sounds like pretend but it's more like setting up a fake photoshoot for ads in my minds eye. It's fun to assemble these things. Like playing with the character creator or that one castlevania where you collect furniture and decorate a room. The only thing similar for men imo is people that get deep into photos and building backgrounds. I guess if dude really wanted boy dolls, there are various 12 inch joe releases, then mego releases and some attempts at 12 inch star wars dolls. I think there are also 12 inch WW2 style dolls and vehicles. There is even a 12 inch scale Stuart tank that I shoot myself for never picking up because it would have been killer for a tank girl custom. I think hottoys might technically be dolls. But if it's just cooming, I'd just spank it to images online. Dolls are a pretty expensive sink just to wank to Abby in hot pants
>>10414652I mean the mermaze dolls have nipples (they have a point molded on their boobs)
>>10415072>I do wonder how much crossover there is with dolls and playing with sims, character creatures, house creatures, etc.Ngl, my doll collecting got me into playing the Sims again after barely touching any of the games since I was a kid. Unfortunately my laptop is currently on its last legs and can't handle it for more than an hour or so without overheating so I've had to shelf it for now until I get a few one lmaoAlso very glad I've always been into crafting and sewing because being able to make my own furniture, clothes and accessories for my dolls has probably saved me a small fortune
>>10415244Speaking of Mermaze, is it dead in the water, I haven't seen any signs it's continuing
>>10415001>Because you'll buy other dolls for outfits, fake food, furniture, etc so you can kind of set up photos and make fake scenes.i only recently got into doll collecting and i didn't realise just how much i'd want to pick up for sets/props sake, it's really gotten me into potentially making miniatures and furniture myself though.>>10415072>I just have a vision of something I want to create. Like a specific outfit with this doll and another outfit with this other doll. I want to like recreate the 80s barbie rockers and then have them go to McDonald's.same anon, personally i love having sets for my dolls and giving them various restyles, but i don't really play with them or anything, i just want them to look nice on display instead of standing around and like to switch them up now and again. for me it's probably partly because i'm an artfag and one of my main interests is character design, it's why i love monster high so much.
>>10415260recently they made the announcement that the series was put on Netflix>"Still one of the top five fashion dolls on the market, check out Mermaze Mermaidz TV series now on @netflix! Visit an underwater world where color change changes everything!"https://twitter.com/MGAEnt/status/1653519500623618048
>>10410118nips yes but full on genitals no unless they do it Michelangelo style where its barely visible
>>10412750agree, we need an European nudist version of her
>>10413930pretty sure the person who did a video unboxing 2 of them is gonna do a 3d scan soon
>>10415557That's just Bild Lilli
>>10415562link to that?(so I can see with the 3D prints drop I mean)
>>10415653Nvm got it myself, litterally just looked up trashion alley 3D models
g3 abbey looks amazing in her g1 outfit
>>10415903She looks fantastic. The purple lipstick is an improvement on G1 pink.
>>10415903knew she would, the white really helps to highlight her richer tones and accents, i really wish she had more white and less purple on her G3 outfit
barbie movie doll leaked
>>10416135>>10416137manlier jaw and chin than Ken
>>10415001>You might be able to find barbie looks 8 at tjmaxx for 10 right now if you like pixie cuts.thanks for the heads up on this, been wanting this one for a bit but didn't wanna pay the online prices since i don't collect barbie but reeeeally liked this one. walked into tj maxx and found her right there on the shelf
>>10416135>>10416137i don’t understand why they gave her a whole new face sculpt… she’s supposed to look like barbie not the other way around.also wtf is up with those thick ass blunt bangs. she has long/swoopy bangs in the trailers not this hackjob cut.
>>10415410Aren't there only like 6 fashion doll lines out on shelves rn in total...? Barbie, MH, RH, LOL, Disney princess/ILY4ever, and this one. So being ranked #5 is not at all impressive.>>10416137Ugh. Looks like they took a page from the Disney live action dolls.
>>10416137Ouch! That is a terrible face sculpt! Wtf. Margot Robbie is actually quite pretty, so making a cute face sculpt of her should had been easy enough; Mattel managed to do so with the live action Little Mermaid dolls!
>>10416135>>10416137customizers keep on mogging mattel
>>10416135>>10416137Goddamn it Mattel
Monster Ball spotted in Australia, wasn't this line for July? what happened to Skulltimate 2? there hasn't been any leaks about it
>>10416345Clawdeen is cute. Laggona is horrible.
>>10416135>>10416137>Ask for a face that isn't millie >get thisGoddamn monkeys paw
>>10416345>what happened to Skulltimate 2?skulltimate 1 is just now making its way out in large numbers >>10416236>Aren't there only like 6 fashion doll lines out on shelves rn in total...?there's at least 10? take a stroll down the aisles and suck it all up
>>10416412Name the rest besides what I listed?
>>10416562Nta but, NaNaNa, Hairmazing, Bratz, Enchantimals, Spirit dolls, Disney channel movie dolls, Art Squad, Proud Family dolls, Bright Fairy Friends dolls, American Girl dolls and similar, Calico Critters and similar, Wakanda Forever dolls and other Marvel dolls, Fresh Dolls, Karma’s World, Harry Potter dolls, Dream Ella, Miraculous Ladybug dolls, Naturalistas, That Girl Lay Lay dolls, and others that skim the line of fashion doll, like Polly Pocket.
>>10416562also nta but I want to add this monstrosity
>>10415847https://ko-fi.com/s/e9b8cb7250link to that, although >28$
>>10416137Gosling looks good
>>10416614>NananaDidn't it get discontinued?>HairmazingWalmart-only and very limited runs.>EnchantimalsOnly exists outside the US aka irrelevant.>Spirit dollsThe horse movie ones? Haven't seen those in stores for years.>Harry Potter dollsAlso have not been in stores for years now.>BratzOnly has collector releases now and very limited runs.>Art Squad, Bright Fairy FriendsNever heard of or seen these.>Miraculous LadybugNot fashion dolls imo, more like action dolls but could technically count ig. Very limited runs again.The other ones you mentioned aren't fashion dolls (AG, Calico) or are only available in specific areas with high levels of black people and in very limited runs (Fresh Dolls, Naturalistas, Karma, Proud Family, Laylay, Dream Ella). Never seen any of those in-person because the population here is barely 2% black. So none of those are mainline, widely available fashion dolls competing with the ones I listed...
>>10417208>Nananasupposedly they sell well in europe>Harry Potter dollsa new line came out in recent months, it's very focused on the girls (the important ones)also I only learned today Miraculous got a Collector Edition doll
>>10417208>i don't see them in my limited experience in public so they don't counti just left walmart and counted 15 different lines, and that's without splitting rh/sh, or the various omg and barbies lines
>>10417208Where do you live? Have you ever even been to a target or a larger Walmart?
>>10406651Thoughts on this design from Mermaid High?
>>10417446boring, looks like an outfit i'd slap together on moviestarplanet when i was 12.
>>10417446Reminds me of Britannica from Glow.
>>10417394It's a fact that those black-only lines are only available in certain places, not something I made up. There's been a lot of discussion about it on Reddit.>>10417444A big city in California and yes, I've been to many in various cities while doll hunting. I'm sure they have plenty of those in places like Oakland or Inglewood, but def not widespread and available everywhere like the mainstream doll lines, so they can't be considered competition.>>10417339If you're talking about the anime-style Harry Potter ones, those were discontinued a year or so ago.
>>10417446This looks like it was designed by a horny straight male, which is disturbing for a little girls toy line.
>>10417639>It's a fact that those black-only lines are only available in certain places, not something I made up.that doesn't mean they don't count. they're also everywhere i go, so it sounds like "certain places" is everywhere you don't go.>I've been to many in various cities while doll huntingyou're a terrible hunter if you can't think of more than 6 mainstream and widespread lines>If you're talking about the anime-style Harry Potter ones, those were discontinued a year or so ago.they're not in the picture above but they just popped up in a different walmart of mine (which also has other different lines than the one in the pic). go outside more
>>10417650>that doesn't mean they don't countYes it does. Small, limited-availability lines can't be compared to mainstream lines that are available everywhere. They obviously won't sell as well just by virtue of not being accessible to a lot of people in the first place.>they're also everywhere i goCongrats on living in an area with more black ppl? Again there's been a lot of discussion/debate on these only being available in certain areas. Idk why this fact is bothering you so much.
>>10417650That anon just wants to be right and gets assblasted when corrected. Notice how "fashion doll lines in the market" goal post got changed to "if i don't see it while hunting it does not count" and "if its not limited it does not count".Also the "there's only 6 lines in the market" is more like, "this thread usually talks about 6 lines"
>>10415410They must be speaking about themselve as in, "the fifth top selling current doll brand to MGA" they're dead but some peoples still believe they been pushed to released new stuff in fall. Personally i doubt that since MGA is going to release a new brand this fall >>10417446She's meh, she would have worked better in a more casual line, don't like how they used the nerd that like video game since it's quite dated and gamer girl is now an aesthetics.
>>10417690*if its limitedThose black doll lines are easier to buy than some MH dolls internationally.
>>10417680>Yes it does. Small, limited-availability lines can't be compared to mainstream lines that are available everywhereone of the lines you mentioned is ily4ever. you can't even follow your own bozo logic.>Idk why this fact is bothering you so much.look at all the dumb shit you've had to say to claim there's only 5 or 6 doll lines in stores. >>10417690the bad vibes and syntax give away who it is. recognizably bad poster!
>>10416135>>10416137the prototype. What happened?
>>10417899Looks like they tried to aim closer to Margots big smile and just completely failed
>>10411139>what's her faceHoly shit that's a name I haven't though of in years. I had one of them as a kid and it was absolute nightmare fuel.
skulltimates secrets 2 are out in Netherlands
>>10417969I still haven’t even seen a skulltimate secrets 1 in stores where I live. I’m in US
>>10418073Some parts of Europe still don't have anything else than the initial wave of signatures; no creepover, no skulltimate secrets. And Amazon of the big central European countries (Germany & France at least) don't even have reliably those available. It's really weird how the MH dolls are released.
>>10418178Maybe it’s because they’re shelfwarming? At least where I am they seem to be. And I think companies are less likely to buy new products if they still have tons of the old ones.
>>10418073My Walmart put them in the weirdest most not-obvious spot, away from the main entrance and more populated section, and not even connected to the isles containing the regular dolls
>>10418073Big endcap in my area
>>10418234Eastern Europe here. We only got basics and skulltimates 1 last month, and you can find them in only one store that is purely kids-oriented.OMGs and RHs are the real shelfwarmers here.
>>10418234North Europe here: only got the signature line & budget line last month. No skulltimate or creepover in sight.
aliexpress.com/item/1005005044760398.htmlmatcha girl is $58 for a few days
>>10417694No1curr about international whatever. These are American doll lines.>>10417724Kek who do you think I am? I'd say you're the BPD anon, but that describes half the anons in every thread so doesn't narrow it down.
apparently the netherlands already got them?
>>10418535Scroll up slightly and see someone already posted about this.
>>10417969>>10418535Cleo is the only one i will get from this series even if i already have her core doll, i will wait for ss3 to deciede which version of toralei, ghoulia and twyla i will get since i only do one of each charaters
>>10419120I wonder if they'll leak soon since skulltimate 2 got its first sighting, I assume if they got greenlighted they might have the stock pics readyalso with the theme being neon and hoodies I can only think of this being a G4M3R style set, though I can't picture Toralei being in a lineup like that
>>10419142I think they will leak soon since they're for fall and ss2 leaked before the official reliease of ss1 or something. As for their fashion i think it's going to be a mix of pieces beteew gamer girl and cozy louge wear, it could also be like an extention of creepover party.I just hope the hoodies are good detailed pieces with cuffs and real pocket
Removing Cleo's tinsel is a different experience from removing tinsel from an MGA doll.MGA doll tinsel can be pulled intact but Cleo's tinsel breaks, leaving ugly fibers. Any tips?I also want to replace Cleo's tinsel with metallic gold saran. tips for that too?I'm thinking of pulling hair plugs and replacing those with the metallic hair, then use fabric glue.
>>10419624Use nose hair trimmers?
>>10417640Are you the old lady calling everything coomer?
>>10420065I'm not old but I do hate coomers.
>>10417969>>10418178the releases have been a fucking mess
>>10420249I hate you too
Dam, now I really Wana do this
>>10420309...why? That looks terrible.
>>10419624Cleo's is melted into her head while RH is looped in on itself so you're better just snipping the tinsel down to the scalp and poking the end into the head with the toothpick.Also that method would work yes
>>10420329Its just the right lenght and can be styled better... Toralei has never looked good with long hair and many fans prefer the short hair releases.
>>10420354thank you knowledgable anon
>>10420329>>10420377I do like this one better though
>>10420285They really have. Though the Creeproductions and the Reel Screams were the worst handled by far. (Still kinda hoping Mattel will do another release of Reel Screams, but knowing how much they hate their customers, I'm not holding my breath.)
>>10420065Lol there’s multiple people itt that call out coomers because this isn’t the coomer thread ffs
oh good the puffy sleeves on skullector ghoulia are removable, they were my least favourite part of the outfit and i thought they'd be stitched on
>>10420414How are people so good with hair? I attempted a restyle once and ended up buying a whole nother doll...
>>10418367Eastern european as well, nothing in my country, but next door neighboor online stores has only the core MH dolls, still waiting when it's going to come locally in my country stores. SH wave 2 was recently released about maybe a month or two ago in my local area. Btw have you noticed demi batista in your area?
>>10420905The doll posted almost certainly has tons of glue or product in her hair to get it to lie like that. I struggled with doll hair a lot until I realized a little watered down elmers is all that works...
What is the status of Enchantimals?just asking because is a line that I remember seeing many years ago, and thinking "it looks like cheaper ever after high spin off"and thought it had no show, no word, no nothing.But apparently is a "healty line"? after all many years have passed, and it seems it still selling. and getting stuff.
>>10420952>Btw have you noticed demi batista in your area?Yep, though again only in toy stores. Lola and Wilde showed up in regular retail for a while but now all of them are only in that single chain. Except for Robin. I don't remember seeing her at all, but that might be just that I wasn't really interested in her so I didn't pay attention.
>>10421683Still active and putting out new stuff. It's been years since I've seen them in store but I'll usually pick up a set for my annual Toys for Tots donation. I imagine super low production cost is what's keeping the line afloat.
Is it me or skulltimates secrets 2 Cleo has a different skintone?
>>10421710Damn, in my area both physical and online stores don't have her at all. From what I can find, all RH (no SH sadly) costume ball dolls are spotted at least online in 2 different stores i think, haven't noticed them physically though.
>>10421738looked into it further and my eyes are indeed not playing tricks on me. She's redder
>>10421855Poor girl is sunburnt
>>10421855looking like a brick aside, something about her face feels offor maybe it is because of the skintone change, the makeup doesn't really pop anymore
Some people are saying sunburnt Cleo is just a single(or a few more) batch error and she'd be fixed on other fearidescent batches. Others are saying fearidescent Cleo is mostly made in Indonesia and all Indo variants would be red. Wonder which is true>>10421866it's mostly the gold looking ugly on her red skin tone. Also I think her side glance is kinda wonky.
>>10421738>>10421855>>10421880She looks so much like nefera now, what's the point of bringing her back when she no longer look different from cleo and her characther bring nothing to the overall story
>>10422162>what's the point of bringing her backmoney
>>10418286So sick of this 'surprises' trend. Just fuck off already.
>>10417899Hm, not great but I think they look okay.
>>10411057I hope they do a throwback line like this, new dolls in G1 outfits, would totally snatch those up. I don't own any G3 currently. Just doesn't speak to me like the originals did.
>>10422162anon this is just one doll and it's not her signature one, she'll probably have blue hair in most her dollsI'll never get the aversion towards one-off color palette changes, Boo York Cleo is still one of the best G1 Cleos
This may not be the correct place to ask but I was wondering if any of you anons here use these dolls as a figure for drawing? I would like a doll with the most feminine look to her, body and face wise, and plain without any or as few sculpted details as possible. I was thinking about picking up a doll from the Monster High line because they seem to have the most points of articulation for various posing and such. Do you have any recommendations? Doesn't have to be Monster High btw, any brand will do so long as they fit my criteria as much as possible
>>10422303I’ve used one of my mermaze dolls for drawing half-bodies and their proportions are quite cartoony. If you want cartoony feminine bodies, g3 monster high would probably be best for full body.
>>10422303Buy an integrity toys doll
>>10422309Wouldn’t an old cheap holiday Barbie be a better choice than a $100+ doll that anon just wants for drawing?
>>10422303Genuinely, Barbie Looks, other anons on here will shit on them but I've posed Monster High and Integrity and the MtM barbie body is so much more posable and looks way more natural in poses.
>>10422311from what I'm seeing, holiday and gymnast don't have wrist articulation (they do have waist articulation though), so a monster high would still be the better option in my opinionhowever the 2009 fashionistas have about the same articulation as mh + chest articulation, so if you can get one of those it might be a good alternative
>>10422357My only issue is how ugly the articulation is. Also the fat body is ugly
>>10422311you can get an out of box or nude poppy parker on ebay for a reasonable price. >>10422357the long pants are working overtime here, the MTM knee joint is so ugly. unfortunately ugly joint = way better range of motion so it really depends on what anon’s priorities are. an MTM barbie probably can’t be beat for cost effectiveness especially since clothes for restyling will be way cheaper and more accessible (if anon even wants a clothed doll). >>10422449the other brands figured out how to make a curvy doll look good, why is barbie slacking so hard.
>>10422478>ugly joint = way better range of motionFor drawing reference it's better to have a reference that can articulate closer to a human rather than a joint that looks nice. Anon is trying to use a cheap doll as reference when he should be taking life drawing classes and looking at photo reference so I don't think there is a great recommendation either way.
>>10422478>you can get an out of box or nude poppy parker on ebay for a reasonable priceMaybe if you get lucky with bidding. Otherwise it’s still expensive especially with shipping
>>10421855she accidentally used chinese pork rib bbq powder as makeup again.
>>10422544Happens to the best of us
I am genuinely starting to hate RH dolls, and the reason isn't rational at all.They're so pretty, with cute accessories and somewhat unique styles. But at the same time they're so basic and not out-there enough to make me want to display them. But still, so pretty and I'd gladly buy so many of them. But at the same time I don't want to have so many of them. This makes me so angry. Anyone gets what I'm talking about? How do I deal with this?
>>10423131I get it, they're exceptionally nice dolls, but at the same time none of them really stand out to me, and I don't get any dolls that don't stand out to me. I really wish they'd release fashion packs, and not just purses and shoes, they need to focus on the dolls they have out instead of releasing new characters over and over, especially now that the recent dolls don't come with extra fashions.
>>10423146>I really wish they'd release fashion packs,Why is the doll industry moving away from that original business model?
>>10423131They are really generic, the show doesn't help either, they do have descriptions of them in their website, like Uma and the pink neon girl from Neon Shadow don't get along for example but we never see this. I would say buy whatever calls you and make your own personality and change their clothes.
>>10423176Im guessing for more money, you are forced to get full dolls for clothes rather than, lets say , a 5$ pack, MH at least is sellling those ugly coffin dolls with tons of clothes and pieces. RH kinda tried fashion packs but for some reason charged 10$ for only a pair of shoes?
>>10411244You're getting all bent out of shape over unrealistic makeup on a doll of a fucking mythical creature. Think about what your saying.
>>10411450Collector quality dolls should include elements that would make them unsuitable for children. Small parts, real chain or zippers etc. If it could pass as a doll you'd buy at walmart it's not collector. Like the shit Mattel puts out us just playline at a premium.
>>10423213>You're getting all bent out of shapeyou are replying to an over a week old post that has no aggressive tone whatsoever
>>10423237they’re being overly aggressive about it but i do find it annoying when people on here act deliberately obtuse about female fashion trends on the fucking fashion dolls board lmao
>>10423237This is a slow ass board. Do you really think the poster won't come back and see the response? This isnt /b these threads stay up forever.>>10423256This is what I'm getting at. I hate that instead of just saying "I don't like the aesthetic of this trend" people feel they have to find some way to "debunk" it or some shit.
>>10423180> I would say buy whatever calls you and make your own personality and change their clothes.yeah this is the best way to interact with rainbow high, just buy them purely based on looks and make them your own character.i get so annoyed with their commitment to making dolls with pretty/interesting outfits that still somehow feel bland and have zero characterization. RH has overcommitted to the real world high school premise, to its detriment because when they want to do more eccentric characters or styles they still turn them into regular teens. now we have girls with purple and blue skintones but are supposed to act like they’re just zooey from seattle who likes fashion design like all the rest of them. lame. i also hate the industry’s overreliance on the high school setting storyline but that’s a complete different topic.
>>10422303You shouldn't be using fashion dolls at all for posing reference because their proportion are usually completely fucked. Try these instead anonABROBROKI Body Kun Doll, Artists Manikin Blockhead Jointed Mannequin Drawing Figures for Figure Model Male+Female Set (Gray) https://a.co/d/hRv1eK5They're better proportioned, poseable and in a solid color with no details like hair or eyes to distract you. I have a friend who uses these and they really help when she can't find a photo of the exact pose she needs for reference.
>>10423131I don’t care for Rainbow high. Ugly round alien faces, big creepy staring eyes with hooker make up shovelled on and they’re all fat with thunder thighs and look stumpy.The fashions are high quality that’s about it.
>>10423131i have mara and harley, i love them both and have them on display, even did a bit of custom work to them, but i recently got winter jade mainly for the outfit sets and i just do not care for her at all, i don't even really like having her on display because she's so boring to mei love the shadow high dolls, they're all much more unique and overall have more fun concepts, but the rainbow high dolls are so fucking boring to me. there's a few exceptions, i like the more recent lines of series 4, the spring line, and the special edition dolls are really fucking good, but overall i'm just so bored by the majority of RH dolls.
>>10423187they also did that deluxe closet set, but it costs more than the fucking dolls do
>>10423308>Hooker makeupSometimes I wonder how horrifically boring dolls would look if people who think fantasy elaborate makeup is somehow morally bankrupt could make their own doll line. Then I remember "oh yeah we got that boring bitch and her name was Lamilly"
>>10423308>fat with thunder thighsi agree they look stumpy but if you think the RH bodies are "fat" you need meds
>>10423531some people in this thread are so funny with their insistence on hating on dolls with an over-the-top aesthetic. it’s the exact same vibe as the era where people thought they were doing feminist activism by calling MH dolls/bratz/similar lines slutty and blaming them for eating disorders… aka the people who got us lammily (pic relevant) and fat barbie. it’s so cool that random guys on 4chan have picked up where the suburban mommies left off, feminist kings!!
>>10423622>aka the people who got us lammilyLammily is actually kind of a fetish doll. The guy who created her has said he finds glam women intimidating and the official insta has a bunch of weird pics comparing her with chubby women's nude/lingerie photos.
>>10423708I mean that doesn't change the fact that she was a plain faced nothing doll. Like just because that's somebody's niche fetish doesn't change the point I was making.Also the type of people obsessed with calling little plastic women slutty probably wants some kind of weird trad wife doll line and couldn't tell if s woman was wearing a lot of makeup irl if they had a gun to their head. We've had "down to earth" doll lines in the past and every one of them failed soon out the gate. People want fabulous fantasy inspiring dolls and no amount of weird value projecting us gonna change that.
anyone get this? Its a major want for me
>>10423879rh is just fucking ugly get over it
>>10424396>t. Insecure Mattel stan
>>10424396Rh faces are so unappealing to me I genuinely wouldn't know where to begin on making them look better. Maybe making the face less round and making the eyes smaller and less far apart, for less water head baby down syndrome slay. The irises are too huge. And the too flat squished nose with flared nostrils aren't my favorite either. And the bodies are so wide set, that's pretty much the trend, everything on rh is too wide. I'm not even a barbie fan, I own 0 barbies. I prefer cartoony dolls but not when they're stylized into the uncanny territory.
>>10424505Genuine bug eyes
rh is whatever to me but i love sh
>>10424518based and same. Sorta want Zooey but her default outfit does nothing for me. I like the jacket though.
>>10424524not a big fan of her outfit other than the jacket either. i have picrel on the way for her but i actually really like her as is right now, so i guess it'll probably stay boxed up for awhile
>>10424535on the subject of not really like certain doll styles, i really don't care for omg faces. but in looking up that last pic i found this and i LOVE this
>>10424546What's the name of this OMG searching with Ariana Grande shows nothing.
>>10424608It's a customized doll
I'm debating if I wanna restyle her hair or try and remove the painted panty. Would magic eraser and rubbing alcohol do the trick?
>>10424599it bothers me so much that this is some kinda official image and includes a hoodie that comes with a separate doll>>10424608omg doll ariana grande should've brought it up but it's a custom. they've done a couple that i've seen. i think repainting like that might be pretty easy and would quickly solve all my issues with omg faces. just wish they had real knees
>>10424658>Would magic eraser and rubbing alcohol do the trick?not answering this until you reveal your intentions.
>>10424661ayy lmaos don't wear panties.
>>10424518Zooey is the only Shadow/Rainbow High I have and I love her but she's miserable to pose unless she's literally naked. I replaced most of her default clothes and her big ass can barely sit.>>10424535About half of those clothes won't fit her without modding because the RH body is much thicker, I can say from experience. The accessories are great though. Share pics if you restyle.
>>10424678my experience with multiple omg and sh dolls is that they will fit (also picrel)
>>10424684I have that exact doll. The jacket doesn't fit. The blue plastic pieces can sort of fit, but the skirt doesn't close in the back. Her heels stick out of the shoes (but I like those so I still use them). I could just barely get the leggings up, didn't try the matching top, and she lost all articulation in the hips in those pants. The earrings slip out of her big earholes and the glasses pop off of her slightly larger head. The wrist pieces fit. The phaser is great.I don't regret the purchase but it didn't end up giving me nearly as many usable pieces as I hoped. Maybe the construction on mine was just unusually small.
>>10424690>it didn't end up giving me nearly as many usable pieces as I hopedto be fair i literally only bought it to copy the look in >>10424684 but just realized that i am missing whatever the purple parts are and have to figure that out.
>>10424660This and various custom Ariana Barbies show up for me. I think this doll has a cute outfit, but yeah the lack of knees>>10424648I should've known...
>>10424505See this is how you criticize shit legit. It's perfectly fine to go "I hate this I think it's ugly" it's the bizarre "this isn't realistic enough" when it's a monster line or "these dolls are too slutty/morally bankrupt" when they're rainbow colored 12 inch plastic people that irks me. If you just can't stand them aesthetically more power to you anon!
>>10424744I'm still pissed te omg fierce line is stalled out. All three of the first wave were great and cemented in me that I would give so many fucks about omg if they were all the size and articulation of the fierce dolls. Lady divas buck wild boots get me every time
What's the verdict anons? Poly?
>>10424855its poly. The rumors that skulltimate secret 2 is all poly came from the youtuber Courtly Jester and her Mattel employee leaker.Why is Mattel doing this? Is this an experiment to see if fans will still buy the doll if they go as cheap as possible?
>>10424684dang thats good looking. I'm hoping the 'color' skintones sell well enough they start doing pink and yellow skin, etc. The matching tones are kino and rarely done
the screening don't match
>>10425005I’d say it might be lighting and angles, but those eyes look way bigger.
>>10425043the eyes are not the same shape. The prototype looks Asian
>>10425005Oh that's a bummer, I really liked that Frankie based on the promo pics. Her fringe is cut too high too, and uneven...
>>10424712It does have the purple mesh on those pieces, it's just hidden in the photo. I'd guarantee her pants aren't closed in the back. The top seemed impossible to me but clearly I'm wrong, it must have more stretch than I thought. You will probably be able to make it work but just be gentle pulling the clothes on. I felt like the leggings were going to split a seam when I put them on her.
>>10425005if my eyes don't deceive me, the stock pick is the china face and the real doll is the indonesia facewe hadn't seen signature indo cleo before, this might mean all cleos from indonesia will be reddish
>>10425005Well that's a huge bummer, I was looking forward to this Frankie
>>10421880If one of the ghouls has a variant skin tone depending on the mamufacturing country, why couldn't it be Lagoona? A lighter tone, or a colder hue, or something that would save her! I like her mold, and I don't hate all her fashion, but that skin tone is impossible. Haven't seen any good restyles of her, because nothing seems to work with her skin.
>>10425241Her skin actually goes pretty well with teal, purple, and lime. But the shades they used are bad, especially the lime shade (it’s literally just yellow). Also doesn’t help that they used pacific blue instead of teal and regular purple.
>>10425005That's annoying, this was the only G3 Frankie doll I've actually liked the look of so far and was going to pick up. Really hoping it is just the Indo variant or something.
wtf she suddenly got cute without the ugly bangs
>>10426136She really does. I think I'll wait for the yeehaw doll since that look doesn't have bangs.
>>10410165>is this kiddie pornGod I fucking hate puritans. They were a mistake.
>>10426136Ok, wow, that is freaky! So I guess the sculpt is actually pretty good, it's just that they fucked up the bangs. Weird that such thing can fuck up the look so bad.
>>10426136>>10426139Eh i think the jaw is still way too strong
so anons buying the abbey doll, will you reroot her?
>>10408875these things, apparently, they seem to be able to pull apart
>>10426966Why do two of those kids have jewels on their crotches?
>>10426979no clue, the picture was like that
>>10421683AFAIK they stopped selling them in the US after EAH was discontinued, but they continued being sold internationally and sell really well in South America and Europe for some reason.>>10426979Kek I think it's supposed to be like a button on their pants? But it looks wrong.
>>10426350Is she poly as well? Goddamnit, Mattel!
>>10427341yup, and according to some sources, it's the clawdeen-like dry poly, not the cleo-like treated poly
>>10427398Maybe with tons of conditioner you can save her? No one has washed an Abbey yet (At least on video)
kylie jenner bratz collab.. Thoughts?
>>10427893Weird collab choice
no hideous bangs but the clothes kinda bore me. Where is the leaks for the cow girl one
>>10424658Idk about magic eraser but alcohol should do it, finger nail polis remover also works really well. I removed it on a few of mine that I had clothe undies for becuase it was some sort of clash in my head if I take them off why is she still green or whatever..
>>10427974Why is her makeup so nude and boring? Margot has a really nice pink lip in this scene.
>>10425005another person got a frankie. I wonder if its the bangs making the doll look blocky?
next wave of disney ilyare starting to show up
>>10428582>>10428583Not crazy about the new eyes.
>>10428583so they did completely get rid of the inset eyesit's a bit of a shame but apparently many of the dolls had wonky eyes
>>10428590>>10428593If you're feeling crafty, here's a tutorial that might help you out. From this point, you'd just need to buy doll eyes in the right size. Measure the eye in millimeters and then look up BJD eyes + size, so 14mm BJD eyes for example, and you can use those eyes in the doll.
>>10428582>>10428583Aw, I liked the old eyes :( But I'll reserve further judgment until I see them in person
>>10428582>>10428583>>10428661Ugh I need all of them. The clothes look great. Any chance these will be more widely available now? The only Target here that had the first wave is an hour away
> RH gets Paris Hilton> Bratz gets Kylie JennerWonder if LOL OMG / Fierce will get a celeb collab. If so what if it's pic related?
