I’ll go with actually pretty dolls over potato sack-wearing SJW trash any day.
MGA is still diverse as fuck even then, but Mattel seems to think that wokeness is a substitute for well-designed dolls. It doesn’t matter how many dark-skinned/disabled/fat dolls they pump out, if they’re all wearing shapeless dresses only printed on the front and have thinly rooted hair that feels like straw, no one will want them.
I’m officially stanning MGA now because fuck Mattel’s cheap-ass garbage dolls.
I saw Mattel shills on instagram defending BMR wave 2’s spotty grainy faceups by saying “Mattel has to cut corners because the toy industry isn’t doing so well right now”
Like bitch, MGA has never printed their dolls’ faces like that. Not Hasbro, Moose Toys, Just Play, or Jakks-Pacific either. This isn’t a toy industry problem, this is Mattel’s (and only Mattel’s) problem. Mattel thinks that just because Barbie is the oldest and most established doll brand it means they don’t need to put effort into her or any of their other doll lines, and this mindset is exactly why MGA crushed them with bratz and now LOL OMG.

What ever happened to voting for the next design of Barbies and releasing that?

Anyways, I've had some success lately saving money by buying individual accessories from Barbie dolls I otherwise don't want on eBay. For example, I didn't really care about the Star Wars Barbies in box, but I wanted the R2-D2 shoes. Got them for $4.00. Now I don't have to spend $100 to poach something off a doll that will get thrown into a bin for eternity.

Like this Ultra Christian lady who constantly bitched about Monster Hight doll skirts being too short, hated Bratz dolls with a passion because she believed it would cause her daughter to dress slutty when she turned into a teenager.

Plot twist: The ultra Christina soccer mom's daughter ended up turning into a trans boy, and now she pretends to still be a Jesus fanatic while going along with her daughters idea to become trans even tho that kinda goes against everything the bible says. People are hypocrites/weird. She also hates the world of Harry Potter because J. K. Rowling said something that was "transphobic"

Not sure if this is the right place to ask or not. I bought this doll and his hip joints are extremely loose. Like, when I dress him his right leg flops around like it's barely attached. It's too much of a pain in the ass for me to send him back (got him on amazon)

I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to fix this? Or if the cucks at Mattel would be willing to replace it? I heard they usually replace defective stuff but I lost all faith in them when they destroyed Monster High. Just got this guy because I needed some male dolls with articulation.

kek.
Why can't Mattel add articulation to dolls that they charge $20+ for? Zero articulation makes all of their dolls look more budget than they already are. The worst thing they ever did was get rid of the rubber click knees. Not only did they steal some articulation way from their dolls, but they also made their dolls feel light weight and cheap. I hope the few pennies they are saving on rubber click knees was worth it to Mattel's bean counter.

>The worst thing they ever did was get rid of the rubber click knees. Not only did they steal some articulation way from their dolls, but they also made their dolls feel light weight and cheap.
To be fair, modern click knees can barely bend these days due to significantly less plasticizer being allowed in toys compared to 20 years ago. That combined with the rubbery texture of the legs making it hard to put pants or tights on the doll and I can see why they stopped using click knees.

Yes, but not for a good 10~20 years from now when the plasticizer starts to decay.

Yeah it likely won't happen immediately but I've had some dolls go weird in as little as 2 or three years. It has a lot to do with QC and environmental factors. I live in a very hot humid place so anything rubber/vinyl has accelerated deterioration here.

It's really a chance thing. I have always lived in hot and humid places, but I used to live in somewhere without cooling except a fan, and now I live in a place with very good AC. Through both of these conditions I have seen an array of reactions in toys, some break down quick even in AC and no direct sunlight, some braved the incredibly hot air and stuffiness and humidity of my old place and are still fine to this day.

There's no real precise way to tell when rubbery toys will degrade, you just need to try your best to keep them cool and out of the sun. If you wanna go the extra mile, LED bulbs are less harmful than incandescent or fluorescent too.

I got really lucky this week, and found a bunch of dolls while thrifting including one of my wish list dolls Meg with her outfit to go with my Hercules doll. Each was a dollar, and I spent a few day fixing them up

Also found two older Bratz dolls with a crazy amount of articulation, that I'm having trouble IDing, a 2009 Disney Store Mulan with outfit,
a 2018 Disney Store Elsa, two 90s Jasmines with outfits, and a new in box black Wonder Fairy doll to go with my blonde Barbie Wonder Fairy doll.

When I said I got lucky I mean I really got lucky. I almost lost Meg due to a dirty Scalper that day. No more than 3mins after I was done selecting my dolls, some lady walked in, grabbed all 12 dolls I left behind, and put them in her cart, and left.

Nice fabric covers the fact that the garment itself is shapeless much like all of his other dolls having baggy shapeless clothing. I wonder why such an ugly fuck who dresses like a tent is in charge of designing so many dolls that are intended to be wearing fashion. Like we get it, he thinks neon colours, baggy shirts and clunky necklaces can subsitute for good designs.

>inb4 someone says Im fatshaming cuz he happens to be fat and decides to wear only gaudy and baggy clothing and dresses his dolls the same way

Like I'm pretty sure fat people get the concept of tailoring clothing to body types, but this fuck just has ugly tastes.

Seems like this is going against the general consensus, but I actually find his stuff pretty interesting. It's definitely outside of the usual four avenues of doll fashion: runway inspired, "urban" streetwear, hyper-thot, or totally safe and vanilla GAP/AE/Old Navy-looking basics. It's definitely hit or miss and I think some things could definitely be combined differently, but it's at least interesting to me. I think with a few additional pieces and a bit of restyling I could really come to like them.

I didn't say it felt complete or coherent though, just that I found a lot of it visually interesting. I already admitted that I'd need to doctor them up a little to get them looking how I want.

And no, I haven't bought a doll in a while, I've had more pressing stuff to pay for. Some of the BMR1959 dolls look kinda tempting though. Again with the caveat that I'd have to do a little editing.

I do know what you are talking about, but from what I've noticed this is very rare. I must look through at least 15 dolls each week while thrifting for the past 10 years, and I've only seen dolls with oily, and tacky legs about once or twice.

>>8248991
>I have always lived in hot and humid places
Me too, it's always summer here. I've been collecting used Barbies, and dolls from the 70s, 80s, and 90s from my local thrift store for over ten years now, and I rarely ever bump into a doll with the greasy oily faces/legs issue.
I bought one once that had an oily face, and legs because it was a rare Britney Spears doll, and it had it's outfit. I washed the face and legs with ivory Soap, and a tooth brush, and the oil has never come back.
>>
>>8251682
Apparently the hair is a wig, looks like good quality though. Still that fucking face, did no one look at the character art and the actual face mold and go "something doesn't add up here"?

I ended up ordering Yuki, since she was on sale for less that $5, I'll probably end up swapping her head though

At least you don't have to worry about the 80s/90s leg spots problem.
Some rubber click knees from the 80s now have spots on them due to Mattel being cheap in the 80s/90s, and recycling a bunch of different types of rubbers by melting them all together to make 80s rubber click knees. Hasbro also used to do this with 80s My Little Pony, and Kenner used to do it with their Ghostbusters toys. Over the years those rubbers try to separate from each other which cause the spots. This is why I despise the concept of recycling, and I'm 100% agents it. If I buy a new item I want everything to be new because in most cases I will be keeping the item decades.

>even know the spotting was a possibility
I'm sure all they were thinking was that it was a great way to save some money at the time, and didn't spend any time at all thinking about how it could affect the dolls 20 years down the line. I'm sure they were also given some type of tax break for recycling which might have also been an incentive.
>>
>>8253476
That doesn’t answer the question whether they knew the plastic would spot like that
>>
>>8253483
Well, I didn't work for Mattel in the 80's so I really wouldn't be able to answer that, and even those who did work for Mattel in the 80s probably wouldn't answer the question for legal reasons. Someone made a really cool looking documentary about Mattel in 2010 where they interviewed people who used to run Mattel back in the 80s. The teaser trailer was uploaded to YouTube in 2010, and it looked really juicy. A lot of inside fighting, and old people still bitter about things and making threats to each other. They were still fighting over things like who came up with the ideas for certain doll lines, and who was responsible for cutting costs. Mattel's current lawyers struck the makes of the documentary down, and they still haven't been able to release it to this day.

One thing I can tell you. Mattel doesn't give a crap about the actual dolls. One of the reasons it's so hard to find black Barbie dolls from the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s is because instead of donating the unsold black Barbie dolls to the poor or to charities Mattel opted instead to destroy all of their unsold toys and dolls.

>One of the reasons it's so hard to find black Barbie dolls from the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s is because instead of donating the unsold black Barbie dolls to the poor or to charities Mattel opted instead to destroy all of their unsold toys and dolls.

This just proves that you have no idea how a product manufacturer actually works.

Companies destroy their unsold products all the time. It's not something they want to do, but if there's no buyer, then it's just sitting in a warehouse taking up space & money. It's more cost effective to write off the merch as a loss in the tax returns, then sell the lot for scrap to be recycled. Unlike people, corporations have no innate sense of hoarding.

And no, you can't just "give it away" to some charity organization. First, the charity would have to want your unsold merch. There's ALOT of stuff donated to charities that goes unwanted and destroyed by the charities themselves. Second, there's the charitable tax write-off vs. the aforementioned tax break on losses. Whichever one nets the bigger gain for the company. Third is the lost manpower, time, and money searching for this needy charity to give your unwanted merch to. Sometimes it's just best to cut your losses and move on.

And yes I know what I'm talking about because I used to work at a book warehouse where we frequently *gasp!* destroyed books.

Do you have proof of this? I donate to toy charities every year and I'd be pissed to know they're destroying donations.
>>
>>8253694
There are a lot of poor people, anon. I know because I see them every day. Little girls who walk into thrift stores, and are forced to put a $5 doll back on the shelf because the mother can't afford it. The little girls don't even fight or cry about it because they aren't spoiled rich brats, and you can tell they are used to not being able to have nice things. They just very slowly, and sadly walk over to the shelf, look at the doll one last time and put it back. It's kinda soul breaking to watch. There are always churches, and local food assistance organizations who would love to get those dolls to give out especially around the Holiday. I don't know what type of charities go around burning or destroying donations, but most charities I know are constantly asking for toy donations.

Those dolls could have made some little girl or boys Birthday or Christmas a little brighter. Just because destroying the toys is the most profitable/logical thing to do doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. It's cold, calculating, and heartless, but than corporations aren't known for having a soul or a heart.

It's mostly a cost measure. Hollow legs are inherently cheaper than solid rubber legs due to less material, cheaper to ship due to the lighter weight and you just have less parts and molds to keep track of in terms of "quality control" and costs. I imagine a hollow rotocasted leg is cheaper than having to produce the internal leg skeleton, making sure its set in the leg mold to fill with rubber, having a set amount of legs that get casted wrong and be thrown into the reject pile.

Disney Store and LOL OMG dolls both have rubber legs so you can't really say it's a safety thing.

It's just another sign that Mattel us scraping the bottom of the barrel firtheir dolls.

Got LOL OMG Groovy Babe and she has some of the most thinly-rooted hair I’ve ever seen for this line, which is a shame because everything else about her is nice. She has two bald spots on the top of her head right above her bangs and hardly any black streaks. I’ve seen other collectors’ pics of this doll have a fully-covered scalp so maybe I just got a bad one. It’s bothering me so much that I almost want to get another one but I really shouldn’t have to do that.

Your aren’t the only one anon, the Groovy Babe I got had an absurd amount of hair fall out, very disappointing considering the OMG I got prior was so nice
>>
>>8253782
>Do you have proof of this?

I worked at Goodwill. Since most donated stuff is one step away from the trash bin, it's not uncommon to get some really rank stuff. Like shit streaked underwear and piss stained sheets. There's also stuff we just couldn't sell even if we gave it away for free, like old TV's and mystery cell phone doodads. As for toys, there's just alot of small McD's toys that go into the bin because they're too broken or missing most of the pieces. Lots of mangled Barbies with their limbs chewed off got mercy binned.

>>8253785
Nice activist journalism there, anon. Did your college professor help you or did you come up with that true story all by yourself? Because I can tell you for my Goodwill experience that 99% of the welfare brats that came in didn't act like that.

They're fucking loud, obnoxious, and treat the toy aisle like their own playground. Tossing toys on the ground for us employees to pick up. Literally rolling around on the ground and the parents don't say anything.Aalthough most of the parents are off at other part of the store, leaving the damn brats unsupervised. There was no fucking doe eyed matchstick girls at my store.

And $5 for a naked Barbie? Where the hell do you live that charges that much for used doll? San Fransisco? Most thrifts sell them for a buck or two. Collector Babs in boxes were priced around $5~10. They were always placed upfront in the glass cases to protect them from your doe-eyed waifs ripping open the boxes and tearing off the doll's clothes.

Seriously, you've never worked a blue collar or retail job, haven't you?

I resell shit from eBay as a side hustle and at my local goodwill in Texas naked Barbie's are $5 in a zip lock bag and the ones in boxes get saved back and put in the auction case. If you need photo proof of this I can provide it. It's almost like different Goodwill's price their shit differently depending on what state they're in and what they think the community can pay.

I wonder if it's the wild temperature flex that causes it then?

You can have frost on the ground in the morning here and 100degree heat by afternoon. I wonder if that effects flexible plastics badly cause it is really odd.

God Yuki today, decided I might as well give a little review.

Honestly in real life the face mold is more tolerable, I also think Yuki suits the weird face more than other dolls.

The hair is a wig that plugs into the back of the head, which is nice because it stays in place well. It's really soft, but there's a little bald spot next to the bangs.

Her pose ability is really nice, but the joints are a lil loose. Clothes are nice quality especially the jacket but the skirt is really thin. The stand is clever too, it plugs into the back of the neck so it's more stable. However the phone she comes with is nasty, the decal slides around and it's covered in that nasty glue that doesn't wash off with soap.
For getting her on sale for $4.60, def worth it. It's nice that for a doll in the $10-15 range comes with a stand. Wouldn't pay full price though, but these are on mega sale pretty much everywhere anyways

It's impossible to know the effects of something if you don't have the time to study it. So, without combining the plastics and then waiting 20+ years to see what happens, you won't actually know whether or not there'll be issues.
You can be reasonably certain, one way or the other, but praxis is a very different thing and there'll always be variables that you won't know to account for.

To be fair at least some versions of that doll I’ve seen have slightly thicker hair, but since you can’t see the doll until after you’ve bought her there no way to check for hair/paint/fabric flaws, probably the only thing I hate about this line. I’m sorry MGA but “will your doll be defective or not” is not a surprise anybody wants.

I don't order stuff online, but I couldn't find her at all at Target. I went to Walmart on Saturday to do some shopping, and saw them all at an endcap. They had at least five to six dolls of each character including Chillax. It wasn't even my local Super Walmart. The next day I remembered that I wanted Chillax's outfit, so I went back on Sunday and bought her.

I considered keeping Chillax when I saw how beautiful the first bun looked from the corner of the box. It was an amazing shade of blue, smooth to the touch and perfect. Sadly, the other buns was completely ruined. It was so bad that even the hair it self had been damaged. The rubber band was all over the place, and forever warped, creased, and bent most of the hair. The hair wasn't smooth, but rough. Strands of hair were loose, and hanging off the side of the bun. Flyaway hairs everywhere. On the bright side the outfit was perfect, and the return lady didn't care about them. When she saw how bad the hair was she couldn't stop saying sorry. I told her it wasn't her fault, and got Groovy Babe. When I left there were still four or five Chillax dolls on the shelf. If they weren't so expensive I would have bought another one. I really wanna see if Chillax's outfit looks good on my new Groovy Babe.

Maybe you got a bad copy? I saw all 4 dolls at Walmart on Friday and picked up Roller Chick. Her hair buns and makeup were fine, although the tied ends and bangs were really stiff and needed to be rubbed (even then, I couldn't get it to loosen up completely). Was also bummed that the wheels on her skates didn't roll. I think she looks better with the jacket and shorts than the pants. On the other hand, I'm conflicted on getting Chillax because like you, I want to swap her and Roller's outfits. Maybe I'll wait and see how the other copies are.
>>

>How do I keep my Liccas nice forever??

You can't. The laws of thermodynamics states that your Liccas will submit to entropy one day and eventually crumble to dust. And that dust will be consumed by the sun when it goes supernova, engulfing the Earth in a unbelievably hellish fire that will atomize everything on the planet in it's death throes. And then those atoms will be eventually sucked up into the massive black hole at the center of the galaxy. To where they will go is unknown, but those particles that were once your Liccas will never be seen in this universe ever again.

So take'em out of the box and play with them, you dork.

>Maybe you got a bad copy?
Probably, but at least I was lucky enough to get what I actually wanted from Chillax. I'm not sure if it's worth rolling the dice again to see if I get one with perfect buns. These dolls are almost $30 each, and the only thing I really like about Chillax were the buns, Spooky box theme, and the outfit.

>>8261078
>picked up Roller Chick. Her hair buns and makeup were fine, although the tied ends and bangs were really stiff
I got mine about a week ago at Target, and she's mostly perfect, but her eye make up is a little off. It's not even a paint alignment issue, but more of a blotchy eye paint issue. It wasn't bad enough to return her tho.

>Was also bummed that the wheels on her skates didn't roll.
I knew they weren't going to roll because I watched a YouTube video complaining about it before getting her. It kinda sucks, but the shoes are still cute.

>I think she looks better with the jacket and shorts than the pants.
That's how I currently have her dressed. I didn't even bother taking the pants out of the bag.

>I'm conflicted on getting Chillax because like you, I want to swap her and Roller's outfits.
I could actually make it happen since I have Rollergirl, and Chillax's outfit. I might actually put the outfit on her tonight to see if it looks as good as the quick image I shopped a week ago. Currently have the Chillax outfit on my new Groovy Babe, and it looks nice enough, but I'm sure it will look way better on Rollergirl.

They are actually quite lovely. You do have to remember to dust them from time to time if you don't move them around often. I don't know why, but I forget to dust them when I dust the rest of my collection. It's almost as if I forget that shes a doll, and needs to be dusted as well.

To be fair that’s a given with most dolls produced by Mattel after 2016. The only recent line of theirs with nice outfits was Creatable World but the very concept of that line was doomed from the start. (inb4 “ur just a transphobe”, I don’t hate the genderspecials but spending millions of dollars to design manufacture and market an product line that less than 1% of the population even wants is phenomenally stupid)
