We're in here dollchads>>9427067
>>9427086We're not doing a shitty bait thread for a general
>>9427086I promise you nobody is going to think that you’re like some Australian nonce just because you have a doll collection. That’s some neurotic projection to an insane degree.Stop having a chip on your shoulder about this hobby, it’s getting really fucking annoying at this point.Men should be allowed to participate in things deemed “feminine“ without being labeled a “sissy boy” or predator.
post your thanksgiving barbies
>>9427086Fuck off spammer
New dino fashion packs, honestly first time in a while I'm looking to get some fashion packs, these are cute
>>9427117>>9427118I agree with you these look pretty neat. They look very retro 1990s for some reason with the pastel colors, so I’m surprised that they’re not branded with Jurassic Park considering how many licensed collabs Barbie has done recently (hello Kitty, super Mario, Roxy, etc).
>>9427127It's definitely giving some retro charm
>>9427127>I’m surprised that they’re not branded with Jurassic Park considering how many licensed collabs Barbie has done recentlyNever mind they are Jurassic Park, I only just saw the outer packaging
we got too cocky dollsbros...
>>9427117>>9427118Cool. I guess Mattel really wants a piece of that "Autistic Female" fad that's been popular with the kids these days.
>>9427208Mattel has always appealed to the autistic female >>9427132
>>9427212Oh yes, one doll during the nineties during the height of the JP movies PROVES that Mattel has always appealed to the autistic female....Or more likely it just proves that Matty follows popular trends to make a quick buck and will drop it when it stops being profitable.
>>9427235Why are you being so hostile about it
>>9427235Trends always follow autism, that's how things get trendy
>>9427301You've got it backwards. You see...>Liking Nsync at the height of their popularity when this doll came out 22 years agoNot autisim.>Liking Nsync now when they've disbanded and moved on with dad bods.>Autisim.And if you couldn't tell the difference, then I have bad news for you...
>>9427332Nah filling your life with a hyperfixation even if it's current and popular is still autism
Greta face mold
>>9427340>This is what fem-NPCs actually believe.
>>9427346>>9427352So does this mean that somewhere in Mattel's servers, there's a 3D file of this head & shoes that COULD be leaked and COULD be printed with a 3D printer?
>>9427358Whatever you tell yourself, look where you're at
>>9427371Ah, so you're a tranny. Good to know.
>>9427371Quit responding to the bait.
New EXTRA fashion packs on the way
>>9427117>>9427118First dinosaurs...>>9427386>>9427388>>9427381...And now clowns.I don't knoe what the Barbie creative team has been smoking, but it sure ain't "fashionable."
>>9427402The dinosaur stuff is fun and nothing is outrageously hideous, but Mattel has been fashionably stuck in 2015.
>>9427402Are you saying the man in charge of Barbie, one so fat he has to sew tshirts to bigger shirts and wears pants so long they drag on the ground, has a poor sense of fashion?I mean he also failed Fashion Design in college but people are still defending Carlyle Nuera's handling of Barbie.
>>9427132I was never really into Barbie as a kid, but I would have fucking loved this one, ngl
>>9427117>>9427118Ok these are cute as FUCK I might have to get like, all of them>>9427381>>9427386These ehh, maybe the first one, tf is that pink thing next to the pet in the upper pic tho
>>9427567Pet bed I think
>>9427415Wtf is he wearing a t shirt of a t shirt?
>>9427573he sewed two shirts to his tinfoil sack. In his IG stories he called it an Avant Garde moment and a solution to being plus size.
>>9427415I get you hate the bastard but your constant sperging about him (using nearly identical posts each time) near every thread is getting tiring
>>9427582>Avant GardeDid he mean Avant Grande
>>9427208>>9427235>>9427340Autistic females are the next step of human evolution
>>9427649So... Are Predators gonna steal our autistic fashion dolls now or what?
>>9427649this made me think of
>>9427117Someone on Instagram was like >with all the girl power slogans they like to slap onto Barbie clothes these days, I’m disappointed they didn’t take the opportunity to put “clever girl” on one of the topsShit I can’t believe I didn’t think of that
>>9427132I still have her somewhere! Dad really pulled through on that, it was one of the few Barbies I actually asked for. I never thought as a kid that there'd be a Barbie for dinosaur obsessed girls, but I was really surprised and happy.
>be Australian>collect dolls>turn on the TV and it's nonstop about the child abductor and his 'creepy doll collection'It's gonna be fun having this association with doll collecting in Australia for the next 10 years. Very fun.
>>9427132>We girls can do anythingCan you though?
sorry to ask again, but did anyone ever see barbie rewind dolls in stores? did they end up being online-only after all?
>>9428204Male doll collectors have pretty much always been assumed to be either creeps or gay. It's not new.
>>9427402The dino stuff is cute. Very retro. Sure, you could argue that the 80's&90's trend has been around so long that it is passe now, but I think you still see enough of those influences in consumer fashion to make it timely.
>>9429208Yeah 80s and 90s trends are more a millenial thins now, gen z are more into 70s and 2000s trends
Incredible thrift find today, really curious if I can get the Teen Talk Barbies to talk, and if they say the famous "Math Class is tough!" line, and the Jewel Hair mermaid was a steal
Anyone have amputee or wheelchair Barbie?
New packaging for the new omg series 5(bff), most of spring 22 releases may have this new window box style
>>9427112>I promise you nobody is going to think that you’re like some Australian nonce just because you have a doll collectionYou clearly don't know people well enough.
>>9429916I need this rn
I seriously hope you bitches didn't pay a Europoor scalper for these Miraclous Ladybug dolls.
>>9429916Huh, interesting. I like that we can see her face and hair (it's annoying having to return a doll because their face is messed up), but she is already fully clothed, so I wonder what 20 surprices she can possibly have. Earrings (2), shoes (2), necklace (1 or 2), a skateboard (1), a bag (1), the "magazine"/"notebook" (1)... that's still not even 10, let alone 20. Will she have a second outfit or something?
Sindy is back. These have such a sweet retro look to them, kinda like licca. Im a fan
>>9429916Fuck I need her. Love the Avril look
What's your guys' go to way to remove melted glue from hair? I saw a technique using baby powder, but I'm unsure of the specifics. I got a Maddie hatter but her hair is so full of melted glue it's stuck in place....
>>9427415LMAO, copying Balenciaga? His shitty ideas aren't even original Jesus christ
>>9429916>New packaging for the new omg series 5(bff), most of spring 22 releases may have this new window box styleI’m so happy they’re finally moving to window boxes but I don’t like that she’s already dressed because that means no garment bags. LOL has never reused a garment bag design and every single character has their own unique pattern, it would be a a shame to lose that.The “dressing the doll” gimmick is actually fun as well and I’ve come to like that as a play feature over time.
>>9431225Baby Powder is good at removing the greasiness from glue-headed doll, I think putting it on the inside of the head also helps
>>9431116I did for Marinette, but the others I got from WalMart.
>>9431213I wish it had a natural hair color, but it's very cute otherwise. I love the set
>>9428714thank you for confirming. one more question from my paranoid ocd ass, if i order from amazon and it comes with imperfect makeup, will i be able to exchange? i just can't stand defects
>>9433435I unfortunately can't answer that one
I'm looking for a bit of advice on how to remove the eye/liptstick paint from a barbie doll head from the 90s. Maybe people swear acetone is the way to go, but my experience with that is that it ruins plastics immediately. Is this the way to go? Or will methylated spirits be a safer bet?
What are yall thoughts ?
>>9434086Doesn't look that interesting. No more than any other mermaid doll.
>>9434066>>9434086A line of mermaid dolls with articulated hard plastic tails with MGA quality? Damn, between this and OMG dolls now packaged in windowboxes it’s like they read my doll wish list
>>9434202I have a feeling they’re gonna be shitty Dream Ella type dolls.
>>9434294Can't you read ? They're over 30usd, articulate and have inset eyes. They're more rainbow high type of dolls
>>9433974I haven’t intentionally tried it myself but i feel like something on the lines of rubbing alcohol should do the same trick as well as anything acetone-based.
Fun fact: the animation studio that do the webseries for rainbow high and omg also do the mermaid high webserie. Could it be a petty move from MGA ?
>>9434616>Could it be a petty move from MGA ?I doubt it. Mermaid High just came out and is catered for the traditional Fashion Doll market. While these Mermaze dolls will be out in February 2022 at the earliest and look to be a sub-line to the Nanana dolls. Since most toy lines take more than a year from concept to release, I think it's just synchronicity of the popular & common mermaid doll theme.
>>9433974Acetone is bad for Barbie torsos (due to being made of ABS plastic), the acetone is okay on vinyl heads. I find it safer than other removers because you can wipe off the paint easily and only expose the heads to acetone for a short amount of time.Non acetone removers take a LOT more effort to remove the paint and often people leave micro tears and scratches trying to shift the paint off. It's not worth spending ages scrubbing off a paint when acetone is proven to remove paint in seconds. I would never recommend acetone on any other plastic asides from the vinyl heads of dolls though.
>>9434643The nanana are just placeholders they will be their own new things.The point is either companies could have pulled a jem/ barbie and the rocker situation or a bratz/ my scene things
>>9435063Mermaids are like Princesses or Fairies in the doll toy business. It's a common trope used in many doll lines to broadly appeal to little girls.If that wasn't the case, then Mermaze & Mermaid High would be considered rip-offs of the numerous Barbie mermaid sub-lines, which in itself could be a rip-off of "The Little Mermaid."There's also the fact that Mermaid High is new, yet so far hasn't made much of an impression on kids or collectors. Not like Bratz or Monster High or OMG when those hit the scene. You're trying to spark a controversy that just isn't there.
Does someone know about dolls like bluefairy / smartdolls etc but without the huge eyes?
>>9435740>Does someone know about dolls like bluefairy / smartdolls etc but without the huge eyes?You’re gonna have to elaborate anon I’m not exactly sure what you mean. All anime style dolls have fuck huge eyes
>>9434066Am begining to worry that MGA its going to cannibalise itself with all these doll lines and we end up with a mattel situation during the MH days... that said i feel kinda bad for mermaid high am not in love with their dolls (really not liking their face sculps but they seemed cute) so i imagine MGA wants them out of the toy aisle
>>9435740Maybe go to the BJD threat for that anon
>>9427075>9427075It is moral to steal poses and ideas for your photos on Instagram?
>>9435740plastic bjds i guess
so I wonder what anyone here thinks of the Polly Pocket DVD movies?
>>9435740Some smartdolls have smaller eyes if that's what you mean
Does anyone else also watch the shows that come out for doll lines or am I just autistic
>>9438394None of the current shows interest me
The series 2 btw dolls with the new box, we can assume this will be the new box standard for omg and btw
>>9438678Love the Mod look, and the twiggy eyelashes >>9438679She’s cute but is she supposed to be the tween sister to Fanime? >>9438681Love the duel colored hair puffs, very cute >>9438683Look out here comes the anon who complains about darker dolls getting this color palette
>>9438678>>9438679>>9438681>>9438683I like that you can see the doll now, but a bit disappointed that they come pre-dressed including shoes. Which means they’ll only have one garment bag and one accessory box but presumably still the same price of $20.
>>9438683>>9438681>>9438679>>9438678I am obsessed
>>9438394I watched Life in the Dreamhouse, MH and EAH. Enjoyed them a lot. But the ones for other doll lines are just too kiddy for me.
>>9438394I watched doll shows, Barbie movies, Bratz movies, Life in the Dreamhouse, MH and EAH, hell i go back and rewatch them all the time, the only new show I've tried is Rainbow High but I really don't care for how the character models look
>>9438679There’s already another BTW doll from wave 1 named “Cherry BB” so for this doll to be called Aya Cherry in wave 2 seems a bit too similar. But maybe “Aya Sakura” would have sounded too weeaboo?
One of these days I’m thinking about saving up for this doll second-hand. I don’t like Star Trek nor do I really know what this character’s deal is in that show, but I think she’s pretty enough to have solely on the merits like non-licensed dolls. Does anyone else buy those types of dolls if you like how they look but not the source material the character may be from?
>>9439671They should have leaned into the kawaii weeaboo more, kids fucking love anime now
>>9438394I have watched plenty of shows watched the bratz, Barbie life at the dream house and the barbie movies (even the awful puppy adventure one), MH and EAH (EAH being the superior one).Am pretty sure lots of the people watching The current Rainbow High show arent enecessarily children, the OMG cartoon is awful cute to look at but between the movie and webisodes... i rather stub my toe everyday for a week than watch that crap again, altho the eorse one its probably whatever the dream ella show is...Mermaid high had better models than the actual dolls funnily enough
Some rainbow high leaks for the junior high dolls
>>9440323Kinda wish they made more dolls of other characthers than this...
>>9440327And malibu line as well
>>9440337Apologies for the dump
>>9440326Ahhh I was not gonna get Junior High but Sunny's clothes are so cute!!
Can anyone help me I'd these two Bratz? Got a really great deal on a bunch of dolls but I'm just starting to collect Bratz and don't really know the different lines
>>9443180One more I forgot, pardon the table
>>9443180Style it jaylene 2011 and xpress it jade 2011 in their original look>>9443187Yasmin play sportz soccer 2005 in style dana 2003 pants and xpress it sasha 2002 top
>>9443325Thanks anon! I admire your encyclopedic knowledge down to the individual pieces
Wtf is the difference between NextJen and Great Big Toybox? The Youtube channels
>>9445927I think one was made for adult collectors not kids so the comment section is still available.
New OMGs to come
>>9440339never apologize for good content anon. thanks for the leaks.getting high hopes for the malibu line. hope it doesn't bite me in the ass.
>>9446194>>9446196These look like kids will love them, dunno if I will personally get them! I love the new box style>>9446179Ahhh, I see, thanks!
>>9446194She's is the special edition doll for the queens line set in march 22 and will retails for 50usd>>9446196Those will be the regular dolls with less clothes pieces since their will be 29.99usd, their little lol sisters will also be released as well
>>9446194>>9446196>>9446367MGA is doing their own take on Barbie Extra and is eviscerating Mattel once again
>>9446393Are you new to collecting or only collecting one brand ? Barbie extra is actually the one that tries to be like omg but without the edge and fashion diversity, yeah mga this spring is really stepping their game up after a pretty forgettable season for omg compared to prior years
>>9446784I think what anon is saying is that this line of OMGs has the same very colorful over the top styling the extras try (and fail at) having and that this is somehow a jab at barbie. How true this is however us up for debate
>>9446367Miss divine its giving me Briar Beauty vibes
>>9429842They're so cute!>>9429884I have a wheelchair Ken, And both a black and white barbie, I wanted two wheelchairs for some "grandparent" dolls in my collection and then I saw a wheelchair Ken came out so I jumped on that, but he's still in the package since I'm moving and didn't have any place to display him yet.
>>9431213Oh fuck yes. I love her.
>>9439712I have her and I never watched star trek. She's gorgeous and it's fun to try different outfits on her green skin, I highly recommend her.
>>9446196All are ugly except for Prism.
>>9447510I like Prism and Runway Diva, but we gotta see the dolls to make a real call
>>9446393Now that you mention it these new desings are kind of more Barbie-styled imo. It's the colors and princessy ruffle bow uwu fashions I think.
I have been posting a lot less here because the new AC update just came out. Anyone else on the same boat? It is basically a dollhouse game after all.
>>9447576Yes actually, they actually added new barbie style dolls in the update.
>>9447587THEY DID?? whaat
>>9447576I simply don't have the patience for ACI play The Sims to scratch that itch because it lets me set people on fire when I get bored
>>9447840Yup, these are the only outfits but there are variants in skin tone and hair color
>>9447576>>9447587>>9447840>>9447939>>9448034Not dolls, don't post it here
>>9448399Good to see you old friend! Look, I have more fan art just for you, since you are a big fan of that too! :)
>>9448426>Good to see you old friend! Look, I have more fan art just for you, since you are a big fan of that too! :)Not the same, anon who got triggered by fanart, fanart is ok as long as it’s depicting characters who originated from a doll line
>>9448399Sorry, I refuse to go to /v/
>>9440333>>9440337>>9440339The Malibu/Pacific coast line is coming in january so we can expect them to show up in december,For now we know they come with a swimsuit look, a fabric hat and bag plus a doll sized beach towelThey're also rumored to come with a second look, one color change accessories and a surfboard for a retail price of 32usd
>>9448720>tiny detailed handbag with ribboned chain straps and everythingGod just take my money now
>>9448720There is a second outfit? Oh, ok, that explains the price point. I was kinda baffled as to how they could justify a swimsuit line, even a very nice one, being so expensive.
>>9451795meh. i wish they'd release a playline version
>>9438269Is Dannychoo still being an autistic oppai motherfucker or do smart dolls connect to my phone and tell me they love me yet
>>9429916The black doll head was suite pricess sister, i think her skintonne is a miss tho, needed to be lighter and more orange
>>9429916>>9455556They're a good opposite tho, they're also the last bff series
>>9455556Skintone doesn't look too bad, but what the hell where are her pigtails
>>9455583She doen't look like her sister at all, sometime the omg are darker but it's only one or two shades
>>9455599I mean to me personally I dont hate it, it's very late 2000s Jersey Shore burnt orange
>>9455610She's not as orange as the art, she's a regular aa omg tone(royal bee)
>>9455610I feel like her hair should have been blonde with pink streaks, she’s not as cute as the previous opposite girls
>>9455632Yeah it'd match more with her look
>>9455599>>9455581That is a really drastic difference, are we certain that's even the right little sister?
>>9455772Very odd, the hair especially just doesn't seem to fit, and she lost the princess theme
>>9455772>used to be a white girl and is brown now >blonde and brown streaks She really is from Jersey
>>9455800Actually, her theme is spot on, the little sister is supposed to be a hotel heiress aka Paris Hilton and the omg is a contemporary take on 2000s mcbling trends
>>9455828Eeeh feels like a missed opportunity to give a more pop Y2K, Paris had a lot of looks to that era
>>9455581Honestly kind of underwhelmed by these. I may get the skater just to match the dude but not the other one
>>9455848Paris hilton is McBling not Y2K, Y2K is the futuristic aesthetic of the late 90s early 2000s, McBling is the juicy tracksuit, designer print and bedazzled stuff aesthetic
>>9455945Y2K has become sort of an umbrella term for that whole era of fashion
Bratz leaks, here their collector dolls collab with the italian rtw fashion brand GCDS, they're supposed to be the main 4 girlz with another character, their rumored price is 65usd
>>9456084They will also probably launch with a matching irl collection
>>9456085Found in toyrus singapore
>>9456084Also part of their repro collection they did an original holiday felicia doll for 55usd,Next year we can expect sweetheart meygan and tokyo a gogo kumi as part of their repro line
>>9456107It's a modified version of holiday trinity dress
wave 2 barbie looks. i hope these will be easier to find
>>9456820Were these Barbie Look dolls even in physical stores? Or were they an online only thing?
Anyone mess with Picco Neemo know what skin goes to this head and what skin goes to that body? I got both but the skin colors didn't match.
>>9457496I should mention the head is a S White and the body is a M White but they're both a different shade of white
>>9456820>wave 2 barbie looks. i hope these will be easier to findWhy are they making a second wave when so many people couldn’t even get ahold of the first wave? Make more of the first 5 dolls wtf, I’m not going to pay a scalper $50 for something that’s only worth $20
>>9457762Because they don't care if the dolls are getting bought by scalpers, they only care that they're getting bought at all
>>9457762>why are they making more when the last ones all sold gee I wonder
>>9458047I think anon means why put in the effort of manufacturing a new set instead of just making more of the old ones which are still in demand. That's got to be easier for them, right?
huh, apparently cave club is still around and releasing a new wave. i thought they were long gone, haven't seen them in stores forever now
>>9458645Nope they are discontinued this was their last release only available thru amazon, there's also a fernessa in this line but idk if she gonna pop up anytime or is canceled
>>9457524is one exceptionally older than the other? their White changed and they technically have 'two' whites. there is 'flesh white' and some other white. be careful.
>>9459355As far as i know they're were fresh new in the package
>>9459450If it's labelled as white and theyre both from the same seller, it should match. The other skin tone is called natural/flesh/peach depending on how it is translated, but if it says white it's the paler version since the darker skin tone is never referred to as fleshy. The stock images are all fucked up cuz obitsu/Azone never fucking update their stock images. So you get one photo from like 10 years ago and another stock image from 2 years ago that is meant to have the same skin tone.>source: been buying azone and obitsu shit for 10 years.
>>9459450that means nothing honestly. post images of what you bought.
>>9460126Here they are. They were both sealed in packages when they arrived but I do not know how long they existed in some warehouse though.
Picked up the adorable yellow Rainbow High doll who looks like Cher from Clueless! I'm very pleased with her. Getting her out of the box frizzed up her hair a bit though and brushing didn't help much. Do you guys use any products or have any tips to smooth her curls?
>>9460167I own a few Azones, I’ve noticed that sometimes the head vinyl will vary in color depending on the date/batch. Sometimes it’s subtle but I have one limited edition doll that has a head that totally doesn’t match. Putting clothes on the doll usually helps make the difference not so obvious. Skin colors I’ve seen so far are tan, flesh, whitey, and super white.
>>9460669Thanks i'll try my best to get to the clothing and hopefully forget the colors. Does the M bodies get their own head or the S heads are only what exist?
>I recognize that doll crotch!Although it's quite ironic that they used Clawdeen, seeing as how should would be very hairy "down there." As a matter of fact, which MH girl would be really affected by winter crotch syndrome? Half of the girls are undead, so stone cold pussies are the norm. And most of the other girls are some animal hybrid, so they would be in Clawdeen position as having a fuzzy & warm minge. Best candidate would be Venus with her plant pussy. Plants don't do well in the cold anyway. Maybe Jinafire because she's basically a cold blooded reptile.Anyways, feel free to discuss frozen monster pussies amongst yourselves.
How do you deal with your little followers on Instagram? Despite putting in my bio that I'm an adult collector, they keep telling me I'm their favourite account and ask me about my favourite dolls all the time, I don't want to be rude, so I reply politely, but they keep talking.
>>9461682Littles as in actual kids or... adults with diapers and butt plugs role playing kids
>>9461682I don't use IG, but I honestly wouldn't even reply
>>9460448You might have better luck washing the hair out, I've seen a lot of photos of washed our RH hair still looking nice and curled afterwards and more importantly not rock fucking solid because of the gel. I'm glad you like her, she's super cute. Did you get the lip liner or lighter makeup variation?
God I love browsing r/dolls. Untold horrors, picture after picture.
Ordered RH Jett and some white hair. I'm planning to remove her rainbow hair and replace it with the white, same with the white haired Amaya I already own. They would look so much better without the rainbow gimmick imo
>>9462842you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs
>>9463097This is not so bad as one lady who posts long af stories of her cabbage patch dolls, they are fucking weird. I'll try to find one of the posts, they are trippy
And god, do not get me started on the "identify this doll" posts. There are so many of them. I kind of get the recent Bratz trend makes people hoard the dolls and ask what the accessories are, in hopes of striking gold and finding something expensive. I could refer them to this video tho https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyO6Sn4f0gQBUT oh my god, the spam of these no-name obscure, cheaply made, ugly as fuck porcelain and / baby dolls. No, they are not rare or expensive. It's basically trash. Just look at this fucking monstrosity. And someone bought it in hopes of funding their college???? Jfc man
Ma'am? I'm sorry to tell you, but Alice is retarded.
>>9463262>>9463279>>9463282>>9463291What did we say about reposting Reddit cringe? Stop it, we’re better then that
>>9463291A challenger has appeared>>9463295Nigga, you see any other other discussion going on?
This was quite cool! Bratz head & curvy MTM body, I like the proportions a lot!
>>9463307wow those actually look cute
Ok, last cringe, I swear! Could not not post it, just look at it, holy shit
>>9460167You just gotta get good with pastels and Mr SuperClear
Ohh, I love Dollightful's newest project!
>>9463301>Nigga, you see any other other discussion going on?OMGs in the new packaging have leaked, they only come with one garment bag and everything else in paper bags and I’m very upset. The hard plastic shoeboxes and hat boxes are great, if they drop those I’m done with the brand
>>9463551I’m actually pretty okay with no more hard plastic boxes, because while they’re cute I have way too many as is, I’m fine with the paper bags
>>9429916For anyone wondering they still have "surprises", one garnement bag and three paper bags with shoes and accessories, no plastic boxes or box "playset" tho
>>9463707I’m honestly fine with this
>>9463551I saw a few photos of the new dolls and they seem come with a second outfit. I much rather have a whole second outfit than a shoebox and hatbox.
>>9463544Wow, finally one that doesn't make me dissapointed in the end. That witch one was pretty cute too actually
>>9461624>Anyways, feel free to discuss frozen monster pussies amongst yourselves.
>>9461624get out scrote
>>9463707Rip cute shoe boxes you will be missed
>>9464080>>9464094>>9464157Ya knoe, there used to be a time when doll general was all about the crazy Monster High theories. Especially the fucked up ones, like Lala being the eternal teenager, Lagoona's freshwater brainwashing and Abby's massive yak cock. But now it's:>"Don't ask questions, just consume OMG product and then get excited for next Rainbow High products."What happened, doll general? When did you lose that magic?
>>9464209sorry if we don't want to talk about fake doll pussies. i guess there really is something wrong with us
>>9464209>>"Don't ask questions, just consume OMG product and then get excited for next Rainbow High products.">What happened, doll general? When did you lose that magic?When Monster High got discontinued and MGA took up the torch for high quality well-designed fashion dolls. We are a board centered around collecting so OFC discussion is gonna be about the toys. Take the degeneracy to /aco/
>>9464191>Rip cute shoe boxes you will be missedI’d be OK with one garment bag and hanger, a hard plastic shoebox, and then the purse and small accessories in paper baggies.The hatboxes are a little plain, so I wouldn’t miss those too much. But the shoeboxes have little barcodes on them and thats always such a nice detail
>>9464212>>9464242You do realize that (you) are the reason why >>9463301 is complaining about the lack of good discussion here on the doll general.The general is just not fun anymore. Anyone who goes against the MGA status quo has been brow-beaten by a bunch of prudish gatekeepers like >>9463295 & >>9464080 The recent threads have been just been boring updates of the new OMG/RH dolls & such with no real substance to the discussion beyond "That looks nice."Fashion/Other doll General has slowly transforming into an echo chamber. That's why the recent threads have become month long slogs with only one or two posts a day and a shrinking individual poster count
>>9464321wah wah wah, don't come back if you don't like it
>>9464321>The general is just not fun anymore. Anyone who goes against the MGA status quo has been brow-beaten by a bunch of prudish gatekeepersThat’s not what’s going on dude. Just because we don’t want to engage with your weird fetishes doesn’t mean this is an “MGA echo chamber”. They’re making dolls that people want to buy and Mattel is not, simple as that. MGA has as their own issues with QC and distribution but at least they are trying.I WANT Mattel to make good dolls again but they continue to shit out low effort garbage in spite of everything. Their answer to OMG is Barbie Extra which is a complete disaster so I’ve lost hope for the company entirely at this point
>>9464325>don't come back if you don't like itThanks for confirming that the shrinking poster count due to this place becoming an echo chamber is a real thing.
If y'all want doll theories here one, OMG share the same secret as barbie, their little sister are actually their children, they're the "cool" mom that doesn't look after their children and are a bad influence that why the little tots are wearing lingerie and fishnet and doing grown things plus half of the OMG runs only fan's account
>>9464363>Thanks for confirming that the shrinking poster count due to this place becoming an echo chamber is a real thing.

F*ck barbie gay best friend
>>9464354>Just because we don’t want to engage with your weird fetishes doesn’t mean this is an “MGA echo chamber”.Monster pussies are not my weird fetish, but it was something akin to what we'd often talked about during the glory days of MH. Sure, it's dumb, but talking about Reobecca's mechanical pussy flaps is far more fun & engaging than the boring "upvote" comments the latest OMG leak gets. Nowadays we can't have fun posts like the recent reddit doll cringe posts without sticks in the mud like >>9463295 telling people to "stop it," like they're the authority around here. >They’re making dolls that people want to buy and Mattel is notAgree with you there, but doing better than Barbie is such a low bar to jump over that any doll maker with the gumption could make a better doll than Mattel. Only MGA is willing to do so while Mattel is content to play the waiting game, holding on till OMG fizzles out to retain top doll status. Frankly, there's been a general "Why bother?" malaise with dolls nowadays. Nobody's really putting any effort into doll making anymore. It's probably due to shrinking child market, rising manufacturing costs, and feminism questioning every little thing about dolls.And no, the answer is not drinking the kool-ade and give into the OMG/RH cult. I know I'm not the only one who doesn't like their HUEG heads and golly-woog eyes. But more damming for me is that they just don't have the personality like MH/EAH or even Life in the Dreamhouse had. All the dolls look like they came from the same cookie cutter dress-up flash game.I just want normal proportioned, well articulated dolls with personality, but I guess that's too high of a standard in today's doll market.
>>9464448>F*ck barbie gay best friendWell that's a pretty random outburst!Please, we need more details. Who's Barbie's gay best friend? Where did you get this info? How was this info leaked? What is Mattel's official response? Why did you censor the word "Fuck?" When is someone going to do a yuri bait photo shoot with Babs and her new lesbian friend?Inquiring minds want to knoe!
>>9464493Yes, okay. So what does this mean? You're an OMG collector who's into that dogplay stuff? Next time, can you give us some context to your badly photoshopped pics?
>>9463707The box promises 20 surprices. No matter how I count (2 shoes, 2 earrings, 2 necklaces, 1 "magazine", 1 brush, 1 stand, 1 shirt, 1 skirt) I can't get even close. Are the bags themselves supposed to count? The hanger the clothes come on?Not that I particularly care for the surprise element, but it bothers me how that is still the marketing gimmick.
>>9464455>is far more fun & engaging than the boring "upvote" comments the latest OMG leak gets>Nobody's really putting any effort into doll making anymore.>the answer is not drinking the kool-ade and give into the OMG/RH cultI get not liking a style of doll, but you're a huge bitch about the thread enjoying current dolls and preferring it to stay on the topic of collecting, rather than indulging in your cringey ass posts. There's no cult, no kool-aid, it's people discussing the best playline dolls on shelves right now which happens to be OMG and RH, and it'sperfectly fine to criticize both, it's actually done fairly regularly here with MGAs poor QC, and the dolls could use more character building, but I dont get how you can look at what MGA is putting out and call it "no effort", their current dolls have insane clothing details. What you seem to be missing is a younger fandom, indulging in cringey younger fandom behavior, no one wants to RP with you anymore. If you're feeling a "Why bother?" malaise with dolls nowadays, maybe that's your problem.
>>9464321All this because no one wanted to talk about fictional doll pussy with you
>>9463544dollightful is hit or miss to me. I like this project.I'm still butthurt her wendigo dolls was cancelled by internet bullies posing as moral beacon of the internet.
>>9464455jesus christ. you know these characters are underage, right? i'm very glad that pedo coomer content is no longer happening here
>>9464455>mal proportioned, well articulated dolls with personality, but I guess that's too high of a standard in today's doll market.it's not a cult.I just really love the OMG and RH doll.OMG because of the level of details, super feminine boodies with long legs and edgy fashion.RH because of the glass eyes and level of details and super girly fashion.I personnally prefer cartoonish dolls over realistic one, that's why once bratz appear, Barbie didn't do anything for me anymore.It's not about brand loyalty. MGA is just selling good fashion dolls atm.Mattel is not.Maybe because they are cheap, or too afraid of karen moms and desingenious ""feminist"" complains from people who don't like dolls.
>Mean Girls reference to advertise their makeup collab for the holiday Bratz keeps doing the most https://www.instagram.com/tv/CWZQBgzg5-g/?utm_medium=copy_link
>>9464455>they just don't have the personality like MH/EAH or even Life in the Dreamhouse had. That’s because most doll lines don’t have a story or lore attached to them, MH was a rare exception.>All the dolls look like they came from the same cookie cutter dress-up flash game.The primary purpose of fashion dolls is to be dress up mannequins, idiot >I just want normal proportioned, well articulated dolls with personality, but I guess that's too high of a standard in today's doll market.Monster High dolls were never “normally proportioned“, in fact their giant heads and skinny bodies generated quite a bit of controversy way back when the line first came out.“Personality” is only something that happens if there’s an existing tie-in tv show. Most dolls don’t have any elaborate MOTU-like backstory anyway.if that’s really such a big concern, you can invent your own stories for the dolls when you play with them. Do you have such little imagination that you need everything spoonfed to you?
Oh, lovely! A bit more activity as the y-chromosome coomer (I just know it's the retard who gets his boxers in a twist over that word) has another meltdown over products and discussion not being catered to him.
>>9464932Ahh, I love it, I was into Bratz and Mean Girls at the same time. Those were the days. I know it's blatant capitalization of nostalgia and I love it.
>>9464762>>9464899>>9464997After reading your comments, I’ve finally realized what has happened to the Fashion/Other Doll General threads of late. I’m just an oldfag doll poster who’s still in the chaotic mindset of the way the board used to be. What with the Monster High perverts, the Disney autists, and the stoic Barbie collectors. You anons are the new breed of doll posters. Far more focused on the actual dolls than idle, free wheeling chit-chat. I see now that doll general’s culture has changed, leaving me behind as one of the last holdouts of the previous generation of anons who liked to discuss such things like fan lore and ribald inside jokes. Don’t get me wrong. I still think that you kids with your fancy MGA dolls are all a bunch boring prudes! But it was my mistake to think that I was still in familiar company. Such changes were bound to happen, but I never realized the turnover would happen so quickly.
>>9465209If you try to post even a piece of fan art now, some autist starts bitching
>>9465209It's ok, anon. I'm a filthy degenerate tooI just don't bring it in here
>>9465187Bratz is honestly so smart right now, not only is early 2000s fashion in right now, but they also know exactly how to appeal to older fans
This thread seems to be mostly for modern plastic dolls so I apologize if this is the wrong place, but what's a good present I can get for somebody who collects antique dolls that isn't just another doll?
>>9465475We talking Victorian style porcelain dolls?
>>9465484Yeah. The kind with the hard hands and faces. I don't want to pick out any dolls or clothes because I don't want to get her something she might not like, but I want something that she can use for her collection and might not know exists.
>>9465489Hmm, that's a bit tough, perhaps some sort of doll furniture to display on or with? It's hard to really suggest much with dolls like that because they vary in size so much
>>9465503Furniture's a good idea. She had a wagon for them at one point so I might look for something like that too. Thank you!
>>9465527Glad to help! Try hitting up some antique shops, they sometimes have neat Victorian doll stuff
>>9465209you really need to get off the computer
>>9463307What an interesting idea! I’m really surprised at the execution as well, I expected MGA and Mattel to have different ranges of skintones but I guess they’re similar enough for hybrids like these. Is it me or did the heads get slightly shrunken before the rebodying?
>>9465209I mean if you try to talk about anything bit the actual dolls it gets pretty heated... like if you wanna talk about doll collector drama... good luck, about company drama... maybe, about theories regarding the shows or storylines... thats assuming anybody else is consuming it or wants to share... and the only fan art ppl post here its the lets make fun of this cringy shit (which usually is fair cuz its cringe fan art)
>>9465209Monster high g2 was like 5 years ago. Shit's changed old man.
Gonna finally get one of the LOL BTW tween dolls, which one of the first wave is the best in this threads opinion?
>>9466288I love the one with black & blue hair, I forgot her name. I like her aesthetic most, that's just my opinion though!>>9465686I don't think they were shrunk! Bratz dolls are actually quite small, I was surprised how tiny they were when I dug up my old Bratz dolls from my childhood. I think I remember them being bigger since I was smaller as a child lol
>>9464827I know right?? It was definitely one of her cooler projects and turned out fantastic. I wonder if anyone's reuploaded it
>>9464827>>9467091Yeah. And now she as a whole creator has been tarnished and cancelled. Good grief.
>>9466288I thought cherry was the best in the first wave, I'm so pumped for wave two though. They all look fantastic
>>9467096I don't think she's entirely lost her following, it didn't end up as bad as it could have which I'm glad about. Helps she's finally getting over her hump of rather mediocre customs. I shudder even thinking about Charly.....
>>9465209You have always been annoying anyway
>>9438679>>9438681>>9438683>>9438678I love the box art on these, why can't the main line box art be that expressive?
>>9467096I just think her current slate of customs have been a range of mediocre to really really really lazy/shit especially since she keeps insisting on using delicate/cheap materials or choosing a lazier method for her recent work. Like I don't like Hextian's methods but he's shown steady improvement and knows what he wants to make while Dollightful has basically devolved and every custom video this year has lacked any thought or effort.Like her newest mermaid custom is repaired with tacky glue instead of super glue or epoxy, she didn't even use acetone to remove the factory paint, just globbed on acrylic paint to cover up the mismatch parts/original paint instead of using her airbrush or at least using thinner paints to get less brushstrokes and used air dry clay without refining the sculpt afterwards either by sanding or carving so they look like marshmallows glued on. And these are all things she's shown she can do better methods with, and with much more care and time. But instead she's so obsessed with making sure each doll gets an extreme custom mod, a custom outfit, custom skin tone, a full reroot and repaint so every video now is very hard to watch cuz she's mangling a doll not customizing it. Plus since she never brings back those dolls for more than a few seconds in future videos I don't have as much incentive to go back and rewatch them like I did with her Eeveelution or Halloween series.Plus compare this year's Halloween custom which was a generic ass lolita girl to her previous years which were all much more horror themed/detailed/better materials and it's clear the passion for customizing has truly left her. I can only tolerate her perky faux tone of speaking while watching dolls get mangled for so long.I really don't think people have cancelled her, they just grew bored of her videos because she doesn't put the same amount of effort or care that she used to.
>>9467727I totally agree. I think the downfall of her using quality materials stayed with that nyx dragon when she used *sigh* hot glue and paper to sculpt up the legs...
>>9462485Sorry it took me so long to reply! I ended up taking a spray bottle full of water and lightly misting her hair while gently brushing and that helped a lot! I got the orange butterfly one when RH first came out and her hair was so nasty and crunchy I had to wash it multiple times before it became soft, but they must have pumped the breaks on using so much gel because Cher was much softer and workable right out of the box. Her hair isn't perfect and I still might wash it eventually but right now I don't want to fiddle too much with her and ruin her bouncy curls I'm afraid I won't be able to replicate them. But gosh she really is pretty I'm very pleased with how she looks. I think I got one with heavy makeup they didn't have any without lipliner at the target I was at
Barbie Rewind dolls are half off on both Amazon & WM today. Any other good deals going on?
>>9465209some of us are still here, but the general has changed drastically. I attribute it to less creative dolls has invariably, lead to blander and less creative discussions. (and people.)
>>9469941>less creative dolls
>>9469969Sorry, the creativity of the new NWO/OMG dolls compared to the MH line is night and day.
>>9470023Controversial opinion probably, but OMG has been consistently creative and fashionable with great detail and range in outfit designs that Monster High only touched on a handful of times, I say this as someone who loves MH, but a lot of their outfits were pretty basic with some thematic print
>>9470065again, since I was agreeing with the poster above I know I am in the minority. I'm just agreeing with him the 'feel' of the thread has changed.Which I am okay with. Different dolls means different crowd. I still like lots of different kinds. It is also interesting to hear different opinions.I guess you are right about the range of outfits. I can't get over the face though.
>>9470086Oh for sure the face is probably OMGs biggest downfall since they really have next to zero range when it comes to expression and even the makeup is rarely ever interesting, with such big eyes they really don't do much with them creatively.
>>9470295I think with the last wave they've started to branch out, different makeup shapes and eyebrows give them different expressions. Take Daphne and the ugly purple one for example, different expressions from the same mold iirc (I don't remember if purple has the almond eye shape or not). That being said, the face mold is still really limiting... I wish MGA had a line of quality dolls with a more regular shaped head
>>9470295>the face is probably OMGs biggest downfall since they really have next to zero range when it comes to expression and even the makeup is rarely ever interestingAre you blind? Since series 2 they’ve been doing a lot of different makeup looks for the OMG; Downtown BB’s checkered lipstick, Bhad Gurl’s striped eyebrows, Ferocious’s leopard pattern eyeshadow, Moonlight BB’s graphic liner, Gamma Babe’s constellation cheek marking, etcDon’t post blatant lies about “bad design” just because you don’t personally like MGAs big head proportions.
>>9470590True, they are getting better >>9470647Where did I say anything about "bad design" I never even said that I don't like them, it's just the weaker part of the line to me and plenty other people. I personally think they could go a bit more dramatic with the makeup, but that's just me, and to be fair on MGA they do follow modern makeup trends. You need to chill out
Doll thrift store finds of the week! been sad pickings for awhile so this was super fun to find!
>>9438683Higher res pic of her
I cant fkn believe myself for buying a fashion doll from a literal Chinese cartoon, but damn she's so pretty. From Ye Luoli Elf Dream. The show is shut but the dolls are gorgeous
>>9471443how dare you buy something you find appealing anon, shame on youjk. she is very pretty
>>9471443I have two of these type of dolls and I love them. The details on the clothes are lovely
>>9471340oh hey a melanie martinez doll
>>9470295>>9470590Oops, just realized you were talking about OMGs. Compared to RH OMGs are even MORE limited but MGA always seems to have this problem wkgjn
>>9471217Nice finds! Do you have any more shots of that huge Bratz doll? I managed to find a Winx doll yesterday which I'm pretty stoked about.
Anyone have any of the Harmonia Bloom dolls? They look like a good alternative to Volks (I don't have space for them) and I like the way they look. Any advice if I'm looking to start getting into premium Japanese dolls? I was thinking about buying my favorite base doll and then buying different outfits as I see fit.
>>9472445I have never even heard of these, but she is so pretty!! I think there is an occasional BJD thread here and a general in /jp/
>>9472445i think they're made by the same companies that make figma. i don't own one but they're super cute
>>9472445$200 for this tiny thing? Yeesh. Obitsu has a similar look and is much cheaper.
>>9464493wow, these are far trashier than Bratz
>>9473244they're almost uglier than bratz too
>expectations vs reality
>>9473571>wow, these are far trashier than Bratz>>9473244they're almost uglier than bratz tooThe exact same things were said about Monster High when it came out around a decade ago, lest we forget. It’s the same pattern; an edgy well-designed doll line with exaggerated proportions becomes a best seller with kids and adult collectors alike despite parents and feminists complaining. And when the creators eventually do cave to complainers after a few years and tone down the makeup and outfits, sales plummet due to downgraded design and quality. Many such cases!
I decided over Black Friday to FOMO into getting the black rewind Barbie, as far as factory clothes went she was my least favorite of the trio, and all of them I’m surprised how much better they can look in anything but their original clothes.
>>9473602I never thought of Monster High as trashy. I actually prefer the old designs and tone, the new ones seem boring. I was shocked to see they changed the mummy girl from a bully to a boring whatever she is now.
>>9473951I think the Workout girl had the biggest glow-up compared to how gaudy the original outfit looks. Amazing what a difference letting her hair down and doing a complete redress makes
>>9473972I like her gaudy look
>>9464502They're implying the doll's outfit looks like a dominatrix. I think the image might be from some specific meme or be otherwise meant as recognizable but i don't recognize it, it still gets the pointa cross though
>>9473602Oh my fucking god stop with the "feminists complaining" shit otome. You seem to have an irrational fear of them. Why? Most parents complaining about "trashy" shit are not doing it out of feminist view, but purity culture. And mainstream feminism now is all about being a glammed up yaas queen, the short haired FeMiNaZi boogeyman you schizo over daily is not real. You clearly have some internalized issues - why are you bringing up muh feminism and women who DARE to like or do anything other than very strict traditional princess ruffles and long blond curl at every point?(For disclaimer, I like the things I mentioned myself. No, that message did not mention half of the stuff, but it's always the same anon reee'ing about muh feminazis at every point - and she is a female herself I believe.)
>>9474113Definitely not a female normal women don't act like that
>>9474156There was / is an autist in the discord who gets extremely triggered by short hair on women, and they at least claimed to be a woman
>>9474212She's right, short hair is cancerous. Feminists invaded public thought and opinion via academia and therefore it is always valid to complain about them. "Purity culture" moms were influenced by feminists in the same that they influenced "romcoms something something sexist and bad" in male critics of films. "Princesses/Twilight/Romcoms are dumb and bad because it's sexist" is parroted by male critics who don't care about sexism because feminist academia is an infectant, and it's the same for Purity Culture Moms. They're useful idiots and all the actual academia behind it comes from feminists.
>>9474550Don't have any conversation about feminist academia and how it has influenced other media. Just admitting feminist academia exists is schizo, okay buddy, sure enjoy that academia boot in your mouth. Don't ask questions just consume product and then get excited for next product.
>>9474113>Oh my fucking god stop with the "feminists complaining" shit otome.I’m not Otome, that person has a completely different typing style.Otome is a God tier weeaboo who hates non-anime aesthetic, that sure as hell isn’t me.
