Dolls, action figures, plushies, model kits, and other collectables are all welcome here. If you've got customising techniques to show off or just wanna share pics or toy news, this thread is for you! Or do you have some memories to share? Statues are cool too but there should be a focus on articulated things.

Here's some questions to generate discussion:
>What's your first vs your latest toy?
>If you're a collector, when did you start?
>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?
>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?
>What's the most expensive item you own?
>Waiting for a package to arrive?

So WonFes came and went, lots of official things and garage kits were displayed and I stole this pic off 4chan. This is apparently Fairyland's new vinyl body, I don't anything about the character but I like her design. Moe anime heads are very hit or miss with me but in this instance I like it.

As for something else, here's some Dark Souls garage kits by GillGill. Yes, they're 1/12. Yes, they're articulated. It's a dream come true because the Figma Black Knight is stuck in Good Smile purgatory and nobody else wants to make Dark Souls figures for some reason. I think Siegmeyer and the Elite Knights are reruns, but Artorias is new(!!!). Not pictured is the Dragonslayer Spear which I'm pretty sure was sold with the rest of the things on display, and they all cost too much for me to justify, not that I could get my gaijin hands on them anyway. ;_; I just want the spear and a shield for my Oscar.

I mainly collected anime figurines, but I liked anything that could be considered collectible, really. Vintage toys, ponys, Living Dead Dolls, LPS, plushies, porcelain dolls, etc.
Sadly I'm not really able to buy whatever I want anymore, so I stopped ~actively~ collecting things like 2 or 3 years ago.
Long story short, up until 2015 the US dolar (most collectible things are valued in that currency where I live) was very cheap. 100 dolars was nothing. I remember paying like 300 usd for 1/8 figures no problem. Then, at the end of 2015 we elected a new president and oh boy. The price for the US dolar went from like, 10 pesos to 45 pesos. So basically now everything is fucking impossible to afford. And if I can afford something, the price is so ridiculously high that I don't even think it's worth it anymore. Like, I could buy a motorbike instead of buying a single 1/8 figurine. I hate this 3rd world shithole lmao.

Anyway, the good thing is that most of the collectible things I own are very expensive now, so I guess I have a lot of virtual money, in a way. I mean, I don't plan to sell anything, but if I have to, at least it going to be worth it I guess.

I will answer the questions specifically about my anime figurines, since they are the most decent thing that I used to collect (well, I still kind of do, but I buy like 1 figure per year max)

>What's your first vs your latest toy?

First was 1/8 Ayase from Oreimo, (Thanatos Cosplay version) by Kotobukiya. And lastest was one Goku Black by Banpresto. Tbh Banpresto is the only brand I can afford now lmao.

>If you're a collector, when did you start?

I guess I started taking collecting more seriously when I was around 16. I always liked the idea of collecting stuff tho, and I intentionally didn't throw away or donate my toys when I grew older because I already tought about keeping them as collectibles.

>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?

I'm not really saving money for anything in particular, but there are a couple of cheap Dragon Ball figures that I'm planning to buy at some point. There are of course lots of figures that I wish I could buy, but I will probably die without even being able to see them in person lmao. So I don't even consider saving up for them.

>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?

Not really. I even bought some figures of series I didn't watch, just because they were so pretty. Still don't regret it. Specially knowing how valuable they are now.

>What's the most expensive item you own?

Honestly, no idea. It may be pic related, but I'm a little lazy to look up prices and to be honest I'm also very inexperienced with that, so I'm never sure where to search. I never bought anything on my own since it's a bit difficult where I live, so I bought all of my figures through facebook stores.

>Waiting for a package to arrive?

Sadly, no. Btw the last figure I pre-ordered never arrived and I guess the owner of the store I ordered from basically scammed me, but it's a long story so I'll leave it there. Never pre-ordered or bought figures that weren't in stock since then.

Sorry for the wall of text, and obligatory ~sorry for bad english~. I hope this isn't impossible to read, lol.

Also >>43389 that doll on the left reminds me a lot of Oda Nobunaga from the Fate series. I feel like a disgusting cringy weeb but I love military themed outfits, kek.

Can I discuss BJD shit here? I know there's an ANCIENT doll thread but it's from four years ago and this is a general, idk if mods would want it necroed if this is already inclusive.
So, anyone here into collecting male bjds?
I'm a poorfag student atm so I only have one (I'm redoing his faceup tomorrow actually…it's been two years so I hope I'm not too rusty) but I'd love to have a whole team of them someday lmao.
I'd love to own one of Little Rebel's boys someday, as well as several of Dollshe's (although I heard shipping from them can be a disaster wrt wait times?). In particular I'd love an Aramis, pic related, in a darker skin tone although I'm quite sad the rhythmos body was discontinued because it was so cute. Dollpamm's new male bodies also appeal to me, even if the naming pattern he has is iffy I can't help but want one someday.
I like keeping an eye on the market although I know it's going to be years until I can afford any of them.

>The price for the US dolar went from like, 10 pesos to 45 pesos.
Jesus, anon. Sorry to hear that. I never really saw the point in statues until I was gifted a Banpresto and now I can appreciate them as a nice piece of art and craftsmanship even if they 'don't do anything'. It's great you don't regret a purchase either because I have a few figures of my own that I've never done anything with besides check them out of the box (maybe that's a good reason to collect statues, hah). A good place to check an item's original price is MyFigureCollection, imo.

>>43394
Yeah! BJD stuff is a-okay. I don't collect them myself due to the high entry cost and high chance of them becoming a pretty paper weight but I really like Soom's Idealian Kahn, it's a shame I can't even find him anywhere even just to look at photos. It's like he doesn't exist outside of their shop.

Speaking of doll stuff I'm looking for a 1/6 head to fit on an Azone body, preferrably with eye holes can someone rec me some? I don't like the Obitsu heads or the ones from Parabox.

4 years ago, when I got my first job at 16.
>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?
Some nendoroids of FOTM shows I got when I was new to collecting. They were in poor condition to sell (missing parts, no box) so I gave them away online. Just nendoroids in general, one or two looks nice but their cheapness becomes really noticeable to me when there are too many grouped together.
>What's the most expensive item you own?

Just this. I don't collect figures that much anymore because I feel the prices have risen too much for the amount the quality has increased. Also am running out of space.

I hope the anon who collects Marvel Legends can post and rec me a bigger 1/12 or 7" figure, I want to customize it but all the characters I'm finding have a lot of… bits in the way? I need a tall male figure who's not super muscley without needing a lot of work to take off the original character's parts. If only we had more options for 1/12 male blanks that aren't super skinny or short teenagers.

>What's your first vs your latest toy?
I first started collecting one coin figures for stuff like Evangelion and the Tales games. The last figure I bought was the Megahouse Raidou.

>If you're a collector, when did you start?

Mid 2000s and 2013 was my biggest purchase year.

>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?

If I got around to selling the figures I don’t want to keep I have a couple older ones in mind. Besides that I haven’t bought any figs for a few years.

>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?

It’s not that I regret them but I have a couple figures like Jojo SAS that I’ve lost pieces for, or bought with missing pieces. I know that if I list them anywhere toy collectors are very anal about that sort of thing. Like someone left a negative comment about a figure being messed up when it was a sealed SAS I never even took out of the box.

>What's the most expensive item you own?

I paid preorder for that one Aoba scale by Max Factory, it just sits in my closet and I never even took it out of the box. Definitely was an impulse buy when I bought it and I haven’t tried selling it because of the size.

I collect Bratz dolls. There was this collector in my area who was selling her entire collection all brand new in box. So I got many that cost $100+ online for around $10 each. I also like getting bundles of used ones that have fucked up haircuts from their previous 7 year old owners and pen marks on their faces and fixing them. I've hidden them for years out of shame tbh but considering putting them on display. I love that they're having their moment on social media right now, the 2000s fashion being so in, etc..Hope it doesn't die out too soon.

I wish Marvel Legends would do some of the more obscure characters (and no, I'm not talking about "obscure" costumes for popular characters). I mean, shit. If they can make Boom-Boom and Cable figures, they can make Shatterstar. Is an original x-Force set too much to ask?

All of my favorite cape shit characters are too obscure to have more than one or two action figures, and they all suck. They've got really ugly joints, are made of shitty material, and have weird handjob-fists.

I've honestly considered just using Blender to make a model and have it 3D-printed. I'm not an amazing artist, but shit, I could do better than this. For your purposes, I think you should 3D print the additional accessories.

I considered sculpting stuff from scratch before I knew that people prototyped in 3D but it's all for naught on me anyway because even though I'm decent at drawing, my head just 404's if I make anything in 3D.

Thank you for making this thread, OP! I tried to make something like this like a year ago but it bombed. Wrong time and OP that could use more love (I haven't browsed /toy/ even once when I made the thread, so I approached it from the wrong side).

Anyway, let's get to the questions!

>What's your first vs your latest toy?

I have no idea as I had too many firsts. Are we talking dolls, anime figures, vintage My Little Pony? What comes to my mind is a Playarts Aerith figure (the first one, based on FFVII), which is pretty special for me. I sold my Naruto manga in order to buy her, cause I had zero pocket allowance. My parents were against the idea (it was the beginning of our financial issues), but I really wanted her and I am glad she's still with me. I need to buy a Cloud figure to keep her company!
The latest one that I purchased is a Princess Ai figure. I loved that manga as a teen and still do. I remember drooling all over pics of PA figures and dolls. I can't wait till she arrives, even though she's not a very high quality figurine. Not sure if I should unbox her or keep her sealed.

>If you're a collector, when did you start?

I've always been one, as a kid I was always trying to get other kids to trade with me so I could get their beautiful Barbie dolls or Happy Meal figurines of Disney Princesses. The day a friend decided to trade with me for her chibi figures of Sailor Moon I was crazy happy. I wish I haven't lost them!
When I was thirteen I started collecting MLP and cheap gacha anime figures that I could buy at conventions.
I also collect fashion dolls (though I want to give up part of my collection), Furbies and other adorable/aesthetic toys (like the Zelfs - I wish the brand didn't get killed by the Trolls franchise, they were so much cuter).

>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?

I am the L2 Elf figure sperg from the merch thread, so I already bought the one figure I've been obsessing about.

>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?

Probably some cheap trash like a Hetalia One Coin figure (I didn't even like Hetalia, just wanted to join a friend in the fun).

>What's the most expensive item you own?

My BJD was pretty expensive when I bought him, but he was still cheap for a BJD (made by a no-name company) and I doubt he is still worth much. I love him to pieces and want to buy him more clothes, as well as to learn how to style his wigs (I hate all the stray hairs, any advice will be appreciated).

>Waiting for a package to arrive?

The L2 and PA figures as well as two genuine G1 My Little Ponies.

>What's your first vs your latest toy?

God, I've been collecting so long, it's hard to say. I think my oldest is a tiny BJD. Latest thing to come in the mail is Snow Miku #1000 Snow Princess ver.
>If you're a collector, when did you start?
After I got my first job out of high school.
>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?
Revoltech revealed a painted prototype of Harley Quinn that looks cool. If something is too pricey, I tend to shrug and move on or else my wishlist would get cluttered with shit I can't afford, lol.
>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?
I regret buying as much Madoka-related figures as I did, I've been selling most of it off.
>What's the most expensive item you own?
I can't really say without outing myself because it's very specific and uncommon, but next one after would probably be a Batchix Mini-Machina Delta.

The funny thing is that half the artists who penciled him didn't even give him a mullet. A lot of them decided to just give him long hair, sometimes with bangs (pic related). Then in the 2000s XFI just gave him short hair and it's been that way since.

Anyway, if you have Blender or Zbrush, there are "bases" you can download for things like action figures. All you have to do is add the features and design elements (just like those cringey old Deviantart bases lmao). Then you 3d print it, but if you want stronger material you can make a polyurethane cast.

Then the fun part, which is painting it. Airbrushes are your friend for that sort of process, but hand-painting works well, too. I've never done model painting, but my dad and brother have. They say that the little pots they sell at hobby stores work best. I imagine you'd probably also have to prime the figure.

Seems like the thread is going steady. I'd like to post some actual news/content but for now I'm just glad you guys are keeping it alive. I don't see why doll faceups would shit up the thread, hearing about what you do with them is useful since the same materials can be used to customise other things. Also I'm hoping we get anons who make dioramas to stick around.

>>43412
Nice faceups, I especially like the one in the middle. Good job!

>>43418
That actually looks nice, you can never go wrong with ponytails. Imagine having enough hair left over to make a random braid out of it, baldies are seething

I have Blender, I think in my few hours of playing around I know that the X button does something lmao. I was actually thinking of printing my Skyrim character's head and putting it on pic related because the facework is already done (but I think that involves resizing and making it print ready which is ???). Then I'd paint the details in gold to look like the older TES ebony armours.

I was an avoid collector as a kid (I was sort of spoiled lol).

I loved Calico Critters. I had a pretty nice collection of the rabbits going. I had a set very similar to pic related, but with rabbits and bears instead of dogs. I had to sell them off for college expenses. It's the kind of thing I would love to collect when I get old. I love the idea of a nice little china cupboard with a bunch of Calico Critters in it.

The other day, I was picking up groceries at Walmart and I saw an aisle with Calico Critters out of the corner of my eye. I got really wistful, and I came close to just buying one of the little blind-bags.

Ugh I’m trying to shop for doll eyes but I’m getting really confused at the unreliable scaling on AliExpress. While I haven’t bought it yet I’m looking at this head to put on a Pure Neemo which apparently takes 11x8mm oval eyes (or 10x7) and the irises are 5mm. Basically I can’t find better than stock eyes at this scale so am I SOL? What if I took standard round 10mm eyes (not the iris, the whole thing) and sanded it to shape? What do you guys think?

>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?

I was at a con and I saw figures for one of my favorite anime, Gintama, it Hijikata Toushirou. He didn't look anything like the picture in the box, he ended up looking like another character from the show, Yamazaki, but with a sword. I would've been fine with it if he had a tennis racket instead of a sword, but it's a clear fuck up.

>What's the most expensive item you own?

I think it's this little key chain I bought that cost a little over $69 AUD.

planning to go over the clothing where the coloring went over the lines to neaten it up, maybe add shading and then try to make the face presentable
i'm hoping i can work with watercolor pencils on the face like on MH dolls
it was this person on ig who actually inspired me to try it out, they've repainted a few jojo figures and i love the results

Depends on what characters, western or anime?
Only buy from Ebay and Amazon as a last result due to bootlegs and scalper prices.

Obviously check western stores first for merch on western IPs. You may also support your local stores and smaller online shops (but if it's an import item it'll likely be more expensive as they inflate the price to cover the cost of them getting across borders + profit).

For anime shit I know you have lots and lots of choices. First and foremost are the well known Japanese stores (AmiAmi, HLJ, 1999.co.jp (AKA HobbySearch), etc), you don't need a proxy service like Buyee to buy from those. Proxy services are for shops that only sell to their own country (obviously) which you'll need if you want to buy merch from Yahoo Japan Auctions. Mandarake is another Japanese online store that sells 'second hand' goods (a lot of stuff there is actually new, it's just been out on the shelves of a physical store). I know more to this but don't wanna type more in case you're not even looking for that, hah.

semi related but this just reminded me I bought a knock off in my own country for £33 with shipping pushing it to £40 when I could've just gotten it from Aliexpress, free shipping, for £20. Hurts.

I think the prices of more recent products have gone up a lot in the last couple years. Like really nice Alter 1/8 figures used to be around 9k yen and now figures in the same series start at 12k.

At least with Mandarake they do big markdowns on boxes with a small amount of damage.

RIP, girl. If only they weren't priced like the luxury import products they are but it is what it is. On the bright side I think the quality of everything is better than it was even just a decade ago so even the smaller, cheaper prize figures look really good. Banpesto's Q Posket seems pretty common if you like affordable big chibi heads, common enough that I got this Wonder Woman easily on a whim in the UK for £14 from a local store and I adore her. If you're UK like me, check out Forbidden Planet, but if you're US there's also BigBadToyStore. Personally I shop at HLJ because I'm willing to pay shipping for more niche things.

Seconding Mandarake as a good choice because of those markdowns, apparently Japanese are really uptight about box damage (and it's like a small scuff on the corner, stuff nobody notices).

I have been dreaming of this thread for so long. I have a pretty sizeable late 80s-late 90s Barbie merch collection (pic related is one shelf of tat) I don't much care for the dolls unless they're BNIB but I love the merch. My fave thing is probs a set of boxed Barbie and Ken walkietalkies. I have a bunch of G1 MLPs, some Jem and the Holograms stuff, vintage Polly Pocket, Moondreamers and a bunch more random pink and sparkly 80s/90s stuff. I started collecting about 2 years ago but had some stuff I'd held onto since childhood (born in 96). I don't really know why I'm so into the super pink girly stuff cos I'm nothing like that irl but I guess the visuals are just pleasing to me. Does anyone know of any good FB groups for collecting this era/type of stuff that aren't full of crazy nasty middle aged women??

I’m a very casual toy collector, most of my toys are just random things that catch my eye from Target/CVS/GameStop/etc and a few anime statuettes. I love every one though and I especially love blind bags. Plus a small load of stuffed animals, mostly Pokémon ones.

How do y’all display your collections? Currently I have one shelf in my bedroom dedicated to it, but it’s a mess and I’m hoping to get shelves with smaller/shorter levels since most of my toys are tiny. The ones that are still packaged, with the little hook to hang, I have up on a wall hanging from push pins. But my plushes just sit in a chair lmao, I’d like a shelf to put them on eventually but I don’t have room yet. I literally can’t wait until I have my own home and can display stuff in other rooms!

>What's your first vs your latest toy?
I am a doll fiend (1/6 and bjd alike), but I also have a few action figures, plushies and anime figures too. Not really a collector (besides having a shrine for a character that I try to get all the merch of), as I mostly play with them, but oh well. My first would be a random Kurhn doll. My latest.. probably my newest Jenny doll. It's an extremely rare one so naming it would easily out me heh.

>If you're a collector, when did you start?

Not really a collector, as I said, but I first consciously bought a doll when I was 13 I think. Those were simpler times before usd conversion rates fucked our entire country in the ass.

>What's on your wishlist, is there anything you're saving up for or something you'll never get your hands on?

I really, really want to get some Resurrection of Monstress figures, but they are quite rare and cost too much to ship here (like 5 times the cost of the figure itself, haha). They are objectively shit, but I am a sucker for camp and monster-themed things so… yeah. I also really want another Blythe, but the one I want the most costs outrageously a lot for what they are. Would like some more Ashley Wood figures eventually. Maybe a few more Play Arts Kai's.
The one thing I can't probably get ever is a Sasha doll by Groove, particularly Nuna. Or a Noix De Rome doll of Iwakura Lain. Both are extremely rare and you can't even get pictures of them really.

>On the other hand, is there a figure you regret buying?

When I started, I bought a lot of bootleg anime chibis. They were the only thing I could get. Later on I found out I fucking HATE most chibis. Like, nendos/q-poskets are the ugliest shit to me. I have some chibis in my posession still, but they are original figures of the characters that don't have a full-size figure available.

>What's the most expensive item you own?

Probably a Serial Experiments Lain statue, picrelated. I don't get why it costs so much, but I guess it's because it was old and not made in huge quantities. It's really subpar compared to modern figures, but that's what you get for liking old anime. If we're talking dolls, that would be my msd bjd, one of them at least.

>Waiting for a package to arrive?

Yeah, waiting on a package from Mandarake. I finally got a figure I dreamt of for about 7 years. It's a shitty one, really, so I won't brag. It's also apparently has some breakage, but I bet I can fix it. Boxed new ones are outrageously priced for what it is and I got it for 1/10th of the price because some stuff is detached and the box fell apart.

>Do you only buy what you like or are you a completionist who wants the whole set?

The dolls/toys I buy have to fit a very particular aesthetic. I couldn't give a shit about getting a full set if parts of the set are ugly to me.

>Have you ever thought about where your toys will go as you get older? REALLY old?

I'm probably not having children, so to the dump?

>Have you kept your childhood toys?

Only one and it's not a collectible, just a beat-up stuffed dog. I wish I kept my oldschool Bratz doll. I never had any toys of value besides her anyway.

>Any toy/merch horror stories, as a kid or an adult?

Not really. Just a lot of dolls I had destroyed while trying to customize that I ended up missing in their original forms and that are too pricy/rare to buy again nowadays.
Oh. I remembered. I got Play Arts Kai Cloud Strife as a gift. I don't know what version since I am not a fan of FF7 in the slightest, but he was really beautiful. One day I came home to him not being in his usual place. I thought I misplaced him. And then I found a piece of him behind the matress. My crackhead boyfriend literally smashed him to pieces because I said something he didn't like. I still wonder how he managed. Kais are pretty sturdy.

Samefag, but. Some cheaper bjds are from 5stardoll, Angellstudio and such. You can literally google "cheap legit bjd" and people have combined lists for you already.
My favourite cheap company is Resinsoul. They have a terribly set up shop with worst pictures ever, but. The dolls are cheap and they are really well-made. They also offer a wide variety of skintones and would mix a custom one for you, including transluscent parts! They do mix-and-match parts of dolls and do minor mods if you write to them directly. The customer support is great and they do real good discounts for group orders (we have a group order in my country's bjd comm and get about 20% on top of the usual discount)
Resionsoul face sculpts are not the best really, they're an acquired taste, but a way to get a cheap bjd is getting a cheap body and making a hybrid with whatever head sculpt you like.

I love your figure of Lain. It seems to look very nice and not even for when it was made. Love the diorama! I wish that more Lain figures were released. Too bad that SEL is just a cult classic, cause I don't think we should expect anything new coming out…
Have you experienced Lain's diaries from the PSX game? They have been translated some time ago and they truly are something.

That Noix De Rome Lain is unnervingly cutesy.
I was pretty sure that below quoted page included a larger photo of it than what can be found while googling, but I guess I was wrong. I am posting the page anyway because you and some other anons into 90's anime and dolls might get a kick out of it! I used to browse it religiously as a kid in the early 00's. Wonder what happened to the author.

Most (if not all) picture links still work.
Among others, you can see early Utena merch

I wish I could buy a Haibane Renmei figure, I truly love this series and need to rewatch it soon. I miss anime like that! Plus, ABe's drawing style is truly special.

I relate HARD to your story with chibi figures. I find them shit but when I was a kid weeb they were all I was able to get besides bootlegs of Sailor Moon Bandai figures. I don't get how people can collect Funkos or even Nendoroids. They are so cheap looking and a terrible representation of the character.

I am so sorry about the Cloud and what you went through with the shithead bf, hope you are doing better now!
I really want a Cloud figure for years, hope I will get him soon.

I just won an auction on the 2 toynami Lains i wanted and I'm so happy!

Also i undeestand not liking Funko pops,but i do quite like nendoroids. I like setting them up in dioramas with calico critter furniture and taking cute pics.

Most nendoroids i have fit the character though,the Panty and Stocking ones in particular.

That Suicide Squad joker gives me nightmares though.
Why would they even make that thing.

I love that Lain diorama myself, it's really, really good for an older figure, but compared to modern ones it looks quite cheap. It's bare bones and minimalistic, which I actually like since the entire series is like that.
I've started reading the PSX translation a while ago, but for some reason I stopped and never came back to it. Well, not for "some" reason really. SELain is deeply personal to me and reading about her actually struggling with mental illness and treatment was too much like reading about myself and my own pain.

Noix De Rome Lain looks nothing like the character really, but I am a sucker for anime dolls and she's really cute. I have a Toynami Lain (guitar version) and she's a dream. I want to get them all one day.
A good website for anime dolls is https://shoujodolls.com/index.php/en/ they have a review of the Noix De Rome Lain.

I need to rewatch Haibane myself, but it put me into such a melancholic funk the first time, I am afraid that now as a much older person I would actually "get it" and it would be even worse. I had nearly got a bootleg of the fig in your picture before I really got into original figures, just because of how pretty it was and how much I love everything ABe touches.

Also there's like two pictures of this Lain doll I found, but I don't think it was ever released. A shame.

Anons, do you have any advice on becoming less materialistic while keeping your most beloved posessions and ocasionally adding to the collection?
Yes, I am posting in the right thread. I can never see myself being totally minimalist and living without my dolls, ponies, figures etc. but I am tired of being a compulsive spender and having more items than I can enjoy. How do you stop yourself from buying whatever and finding out what you actually want?
Years ago, like most insecure young adult collectors I got memed into believing that the more you have the better, more real collector you are. I have developed a shopping addiction for various reasons and I am trying to unfuck myself. I still get triggered constantly into considering buying a doll or a furniture for my BJD…

DAE here face this kind of issue or maybe has managed to find a solution?

No. 45081

I've struggled with the same issue, and for me what worked was designating 2 shelves in my room to keep my collection, and not letting it spread any further. I used to have so many figurines all around my room and have tons of shelves dedicated to them and would basically keep them anywhere they'd fit but once I parcelled off all the ones I didn't like/feel a huge attachment to I had a small enough lot left to keep confined to one area. Now I have the mindset of "oh, if I get a new one I'd have to get rid off/stow away one of these ones I really like….." which has hugely deterred any impulse purchases. Obviously you can tweak however many shelves or whatever.

I donated 90% of my collection (plushies, figures, dolls, etc.) and feel better for it.

I no longer impule purchase random shit just bc I like it. The way I got myself to slow down was to set up rules like
>the item has to stay in my cart for two days and if I still want it it can be bought
>if it's too similar to something else I own then I can't buy it
>only n amount of items can be bought per month

First if you're a member or even lurker of any specific doll/figure forums or other communities like FB groups or whatever, stop checking them. I know it can be fun to connect with people who share the same interests but in my experience internet groups centered around any hobby that involves buying things is always filled with mega autists who spend an exorbitant amount of money on shit and the culture just encourages constant buying and hoarding. It's so tempting to want to buy something new and shiny when you see other collectors parading it around on social media, it's the whole FOMO thing and if you focus solely on your own collection it's a lot easier to avoid temptation. Learn to love what you already own instead of focusing on what you don't have and definitely don't compare yourself to other collectors.

Also I recommend keeping track of what you're buying. I keep a bullet journal and I write down everything that I buy for each month. When you impulsively shop it's so easy to fall into the mindset of "Oh, but this is just $12, that's nothing" but that shit adds up super fast. When you keep track of everything you bought it's no longer "just $12" but "another $12 to the $150 that I've already spent on doll stuff this month…" and you start to hold yourself accountable.

I tried to put some stuff to give away and realized how much I need to buy an extra shelf (that I've been planning for two years, it's not related to trying to stick all my shit somewhere).

Guess I will have to leave the toy FB groups (that I lurk every once in a while, mostly when they pop up). I used to go to local doll meetups but had to stop as an abusive exfriend/excoworker is responsible for organizing them (she is infamous in the community because of her behavioral issues).
I feel sad about it cause I could meet a lot of women friends that way, but it was too uncomfortable with how many of them ignored/did not notice the organiser's toxic behavior. At least I don't have other people triggering my spending impulses.

You are completely right about how things add up, I am trying to sort this issue out.

I do not intend to clutter this thread with my issue beyond this reply (as I feel thankful to anons that gave me advice), however I wanted to talk with other people who are in the toy collecting community and not randoms that don't have the experience with the mentality that led me to my issues. As far as I understand, this thread is also about being a collector as much as discussing the toys itself. Take a look at OP's post >>43400. At least that's how I understand it, maybe I am wrong.

I only just got around to reading this thread since anon talked about it in another hi hi. But I'm not sure how intense of a customization you're trying to do, cuz there's all kinds of molding on the bodies. We usually only swap heads and paint so I'm a noob. Some male bodies that kinda sound similar are these:

Still in stores:
>Endgame Hawkeye & Black Widow 2-pack, the male body is average, not super skinny and was made to suit any male hero in the movie.
>Ant-Man maybe, the Paul Rudd head is amazing.

Online/second-hand:
>Everett Ross & Killmonger 2-pack, Ross has an average body but a rubber blazer.
>Any Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes fig
>Spider-Man Noir

Spider-Man Noir's fig has a shit ton of bits and a trench coat but he's taller than any other Marvel figure I own and not as super-thin super-muscley as the other Spider-Man figs. Also there will prob be new figs for the Falcon & WS show and the Wanda & Vision show, you might like Vision's or Falcon's body types. Old figs get crazy expensive, waiting for the new waves might be a better bet. I don't have any X-Men but their bodies are usually pretty comic-looking. There is also a vintage-style line thats always pretty cheap and any bits on them are really simple.

I say try the 1 week rule, if it’s in your cart wait for that long. Or maybe even monthly depending on how often you get paid.
And remind yourself about the things you HAVE to pay for (bills, food, toiletries etc). For example my hobby is not as important as a new phone for my mother when her current is days away from death, as well as some serious home repairs and replacing wonky annoying furniture.

What is the general opinion on nendos? I have a couple I am REALLY eyeing up, cause they're so cute, but it's really hard for me to justify the price point.

I have like three funko pops, cause they're cheap but still cute enough to justify for me, but compared to the nendos they're ugly as sin. Plus the accessories for the nendos are extremely appealing. The bunny ears for the Link nendo makes me want to cry. But it's like, ~$50 for a piece of plastic that just sits there seems like too much? I did almost buy a sailor moon fig for $130 but resisted, and in hind sight I'm glad I did.

How do collectors justify/afford the money spent on figures? Do you include it in your budget? Just use credit and pay it off later? Does anybody else feel guilty buying things like this? I'm really interested in how ya'll make it work. Please help me.

It’s probably because they’re cheap and easily available to normies who don’t get hobby shops or importing things, like getting a table from IKEA vs getting some bespoke piece from a Swedish carpenter.. I’d rather somebody gift me new socks than a lump of plastic that doesn’t even look good.

>>47400
Can’t help you there but this makes me wonder how nendo quality is doing vs figmas which people are rightly beginning to shit on for QC issues and generally being cheap with figures being more expensive for less accessories. Good Smile also came up with a huge headed doll body which nobody around here seems interested in.

There’s no way around affording merch, you have to be insanely rich and/or spend 0 on everything else in your life. Like SailorTortilla on Youtube, she said she had a job in advertising but I think she has to come from some money because her merch room is unbelievable, I can’t imagine how much it all costs in total when one of those shelves has like dozens of things that cost hundreds each. I wonder if she has a problem but that she has a bank account that can take it, it’s more shiny plastic than I could dream of.

Personally I dislike them because all the extra parts are a hassle to keep in check and I don't like chibi style figures in general as they are less interesting than original character designs. Obviously you don't share my point of view. Having said that, if you are going to buy a figure, buy a Nendo rather than a Funko. They are lazy garbage and sooner or later you might regret wasting money on them instead of going for the quality stuff. Maybe save up for a Nendo of your fave character. That way you will be sure that you really want to spend money on it.
IMHO it's a bit like buying a bootleg instead of the real thing. You might think you are saving a money, but the quality is not there which makes the figure worthless.

I would recommend Funkos only if you are desperate for a figure and your favorite character doesn't have any other merch. Even then comissioning an artist would be better, but if you don't have the time and/or money…
I am still salty that there are no quality Bojack Horseman figures that actually look like the characters and not sameface blobs.

Ugh, yes there are so many ugly funkos. Like I said, ugly as sin. Although I have the bulbasaur one and I love it, he has such a cute smile. Pic related.

>>47437
One of the ones I'm wanting(I literally just want two) is actually by Good Smile so I like that style for sure.

I can afford it, technically, it's just justifying that amount of money on something that's basically useless and creates more clutter. I grew up with hoarder mentality and just got every little thing that caught my eye, so I'm wary of falling back into that. I'm mostly curious if anybody else has this issue and how others may deal with it? Does anybody else feel like these are things that they shouldn't be spending money on?

>>47417
>>47447
Totally agree with the bootleg comparison. And I feel because funkos are so much cheaper it's easier to buy a bunch of them, whereas having one or two nendos would make them so much more special to own. PLus it would be more difficult to have it get out of hand in regards to collecting.

I agree this Bulbasaur (btw great choice in starter Pokemon, anon!) is pretty damn cute and an exception to the rule.

Anyone else remember these? I know I still have mine, but I haven't seen it in years, packed away in boxes somewhere since we last were preparing to move. I remember how mad my mom was when I asked for him. I loved it so much; saw it at the grocery store. The thing was damn expensive too, $3.50. It sounds like nothing now, but that was over 15+ years ago and my mom and I dug up change in the car just to go to McDonalds. It meant a lot to me at the time; I carried it everywhere. I took it to school one day, only in the 4th grade, and was belittled for being too old in front of the entire class to be bringing toys to school. Keep in mind I was hiding it under my desk and not letting it distract me from my work, I just used it to calm my anxiety. She took it away and called home, made my mother even angrier; she tried to throw it away and called me a dumbass. I dug it out, so she hid it from me, and that's when it ended up put in those boxes.

I have borderline hoarder parents which in turn made it really easy for me to fall into a collector hobby and overindulge. If I wanted it and I had the money, I would get it. So it seems like we come from similar places lol.

Honestly, a lot of it is simply self-control and knowing yourself. If most of your pointless purchases are, say, impulsive or something you do while drunk, you need to nip it in the bud when you feel the temptation. I ended up having to create strict guidelines for myself to prevent from overspending on useless shit. I followed those rules for a long time and thankfully don't need to reference them anymore, but it can be as dumb as "will this match your other collectibles?" to more serious "are you spending more than your monthly budget allows?"

Should you be spending money on it? Well, that's pretty subjective. Logically, Nendoroids don't really serve a purpose other than being cute. But there's nothing really wrong with buying cute things as long as you aren't drowning in them. After getting over my spending habit, I started having buyer's remorse over the stupidest things, so try not to fall into that hole, either. You will make yourself miserable over anything that doesn't fall under "necessities", which is a lot of stuff.

If you really want to justify it? Tell yourself you can sell it later if you aren't feeling it. Nendoroids sell pretty well even when they're opened, so don't sweat that part of it.

Mind if I ask where you're buying from? Because Mandarake has a few of the Link Nendos for a little under $30 and MFC has a few open/nib ones for between $30-40, some with free shipping. You can save yourself a lot of money if you know where to look.

I don’t care if Faye is ‘losing her pants’, she’s a good character, it’s a good if very sexy figure. I can admire how on-model it is and it captures the parts confident and sensual parts of her personality. The fact that mostly men buy these is what bothers you, not me because I can admire the characters behind these figures and I don’t mind cheesecake. I only lament there isn’t more beef and that most bishounen figures are too tame.

Anon….

And nah m8, it’s an older Revoltech, the joint cuts are too obvious to me and older Revos have weird articulation that I’m not a fan of. Her face also looks pretty off, not accurate. Usually I prefer articulated figures but if I were to choose I’d pick the statue. Also lol @ you posting that figure, you must assume I’m a male poster talking about her nipples like that and you could only search for that ancient Revo after I namedropped the character.

Thanks anon!! It was between Bulbasaur and Squirtle but Squirtle's smile wasn't as cute, haha. Plus if I'm gonna get squirtle merch it's gonna be the squrtle squad version!

We do seem to have limited options overseas, and the cheap items like gacha end up not being that cheap when you add shipping and duties onto them, lol.

>>47688
You anons have convinced me, I'm gonna go for it! Don't judge me but it's Sasuke and the Majora's Mask version of Link. There's also a reasonably priced Vegeta fig I might get too that's not too ugly. Idk I find a lot of the dbz merch to be really ugly too haha. Maybe I'm just too particular.


>>47718
Yeah, I think you've hit the nail on the head anon. I especially had a problem overspending on clothes until a year or so ago. I did the same thing that you did with the rules, and I barely buy new clothing now. I guess I'm just worried I'm gonna open pandora's box again, but have it be about figs this time instead lol.

But you're right, I don't want to deprive myself from buying cute things, because it does bring me joy. A lot of it is just making sure I don't go over board now, cause owning too much of it all would probably make me feel less happy about it in general.

I was thinking of getting them on tokyo otaku mode. They have the discounts, plus $10 off as a new member. The two nendos I want are $50 each and the vegeta fig is like $20 or something. With the discounts it comes to ~$100 before shipping, which doesn't seem too bad? Especially for new in box?

To stop yourself from overspending on toys, tell yourself to only buy one a month (or whatever amount of time you find more appropriate) unless it's one you REALLY want. To know if you really want a fig, wait a few weeks before buying it. If you can't stop thinking about it, it's probably a good purchase.

That isn't too bad depending on shipping, especially if you prefer NIB. But if you ever want to look into 2nd hand stuff, give Mandarake or MyFigureCollection a go. A lot of Like New (or even unopened) stuff for less than you'll find other places, though Mandarake is in Japan so you have to factor in shipping.

Let’s ignore them and post better content.

I like whatever this Revoltech line is called (can’t remember the name), they’re clearly supposed to be more like articulated pieces of art than play-proof action figures. There’s a dragon one and some shinto/buddhist gods which are really, really cool to look at. If I could afford to I’d get one of the dragons but lol it’s probably inappropriate to put a Japanese mass produced piece of plastic in my household shrine.

I've heard that the water turns yellow like this when the toy has been exposed to a lot of sun, enabling the growth of bacteria.

Also, sometimes the water would evaporate to the point that the puppet couldn't move anymore.

what is one thing you look for in a figure?

i feel there's no excuse for the bases to be plain on figures (not figmas or nendos)

i preordered a scale figure and i rarely buy those but i loved the character too much. the base is just SO boring and i feel it would work so much better if they had jazzed it up a bit.

when i look at other scale figures i own that were cheaper they're so much more interesting in both base and posing. SIGH. they could've done so much more with her.

>what is one thing you look for in a figure?
Intricate details and at least semi-realistic proportions if not from a highly stylized series. I love swirling super powers or nature like trees/flowers, expressive faces, calligraphy, metallic or detailed trim/paintjobs… basically very dynamic. I also look for figures that accurately portray the character, as if to pull them from the screen into the real world. A lot of merch in general just doesn't look like the character, or doesn't suit their personality. Pic related is one of my favorite figure designs, although I never bought it because I didn't have the money at the time.

Plain bases are fine to me if it feels like it would take away from the rest of the figure, although plain bases tend to have equally bland figures attached.

Resident Furby sperg here.
I do, but I only collect. I have mixed feelings about custom Furbies. They are often very cute and I am in awe of how skilled the artists are. On the other hand I appreciate vintage Furbies just as they are and I think I prefer unmodified ones. It's a bit of a waste to see a vintage toy remodeled because there might be a limited amount of those around (especially working ones) and I feel they should be preserved (unless the Furby was already ruined). I have the same opinion about G1 ponies.

Sidenote but I wish the community wasn't a cesspool of genderspecial kids making 'Furby hates terfs' art, I wish I has a Furby sperg friend tbh

i havent been a fan of cowboy bebop for long but i have considered to buy some merch recently and to my surprise funkopops of the main characters actually exist. i wish i could buy the product shown in the picture but its us exclusive. the chances of finding any other pops besides vicious are slim to none so i guess i should just fuck it.

>The clothing on them looks cute, but i am not a fan of the eyes
I feel the same, I think it has more to with their design rather than size (as a whole); their pupil is too big where as the iris too thin and add to that the small one white dot that supposed to be the shine that reflects in the eye. In other words or tl;dr, there's lack of detail and the pupil is big void.

Which is why I like the latest doll which have yet to be released, they gave her unique details to her eyes which also gives her more of character

>I see these being super popular

I usually hate Funko Pops but yesterday I caved in and finally bought a flocked Porg Funko Pop. It was a very hard decision, since all the Porgs are very cute. I decided on the flocked one as I find the painting quite ugly on the Porgs I've seen on youtube (it seems kind of blotchy).

Looking forward to buying the lifesize Porg next month. I hope it will not get sold out before I can throw my money at it! I'm worried that soon it will be hard to get Porg merch since not so many was made in the first place and they were not featured in The Rise of Skywalker beyond a quick background cameo…

I really love those creatures, I wish we could get an entire video game about them or a mini series of shorts.

I've seen a few doll artists cut out the eyes and then replace them with like the blythe sized ones(looks cute).

My gripe with them is the price because I'm not dropping $35 USD for a doll. I don't care about the blind bag shit so I wish they would just sell the doll already premade/clothed which would cut down on the cost.

I really like the Rainbow surprise dolls too but can't see paying $54 because the dolls are a blind box and come with two things of slime(that doesn't work) also wish they were poseable.

I just can't get with this blind box fad and can't wait till it's over.

I asked my friend to lend me her doll so I could repaint her face and make her a new outfit so I made her a witch. It's not my first attempt but it's my first time using soft pastels. She is a Winx doll.
I would like to redesign dolls like this and sell them, but while I think she's adorable I know it's not high quality enough to sell.

Can anyone recommend a 1/12 (figma-ish) male for customs? Even just the head? It’s hard finding a head in the right style, most anime figures have faces that are too pointy when I’m going for something (slightly) less stylized.
Might as well vent while I’m here, it’s annoying all the blank bodies I’ve found are so short. Body-kun, Archetype He, Sozai kun, they’re all about 14cm (5’5) or less which looks dumb when I want them in scale with my girls and they aren’t supposed to be half-pint teenage boys. The figmas for Fate guys are the right height but I’ve zero interest buying those and their faces are still doritos. I wish I knew how to sculpt or 3D print. Just give me something with a defined jaw and nose.

I don't think her hair resembles Sailor Moon that much. She's my favorite one too, but I'm not a fan of their ridiculously huge and distracting earrings, it ruins the doll.

The new Miraculous Lady bug dolls by Playmates are great improvement to the Bandai ones. I don't watch the show, but some of the designs are good.

Twisty girls are nice, might grab one if I see it.

Cave Club aren't great as Monster High or Ever After High, but they're quite nice. I want the notPebbles and blue and purple haired one. I think big wolly Mammoth animal would be better choice than big T-Rex. A medium velociraptor would be awesome too. I wish all the animals were flocked…

Thank you! I’m looking on eBay and other auction sites - I’ve never bought a nendoroid before, I feel like I’ll end up paying tons and end up with a knock off accidentally. Did you get yours when she was first released?

I hope they come out with more of the princess’s like Merida or Aurora, the newish Jasmine one is so pretty..

Yeah I pre-ordered her when she first came out. She was one of the last collectibles I bought before going anti-consumption. I've slowly been going through my collection and selling stuff off but she's one I'm probably going to keep. Also I had no idea she had gone up in price!

I’m pretty anti-consumption as well! (Even though it doesn’t really sound like it hah) I’ve been selling a lot of my items during the quarantine, but Rapunzel is a favourite so the nendoroid overrides whatever part is me is trying to be a minimalist. Ideally I’ll buy her second hand when she’s available on eBay or whatever~ your collection sounds neat though! Definitely keep whatever makes you happy !!

I'm so mad there is no quality Twin Peaks toy merch (yes, I'm the sperg rewatching the series and posting about it lol). All we have is shitty sold out Funko figure set that has Cooper that doesn't even look like himself and a bunch of Pops which is not great. I've also seen a nightmarish chibi figure of Coop from some convention and that's it. I wish something like pic related was available (this is a custom figure).
I caved in and bought a Laura pop but I'm not satisfied. Too bad that if this has not happened around Return, it will probably never happen.

Recently Na! Na! Na! Surprise arrived to my country, so I decided to give it a try and get one. The concept of combining fashion doll with plush is quite innovative, however the execution leaves much to desire.

The plush bag accessory is really cute and fluffy, I do enjoy it and found it to be a worthwhile.

On another note, Unsurprisingly Barbie/Mattel' shelf space became smaller where as MGA/LOL OMG/NNNS grown lately and it was the case for two different toy shops in different districts. Maybe Mattel would finally get that motivating swift kick like they did during Bratz days…and if not, Mattel death wouldn't be a great loss at this point.

The body got nice weight to it and have 5 PoA, all of which are swivel joints.

Annoyingly, the doll can't either sit or stand properly due to the hefty body and the badly designed swivel joints for the hips. I don't mind much the lack of ability to stand as much as the sitting.

As for the controversial bra and panties, I do not mind the panties (I think they're a nice touch) but the bra is too much and pointless considering the doll is flat. Unlike what many would claim, I don't think these are looking like kids but rather as stylized chibis; the wide hips are defiantly not a child-like feature.

The printed socks have grown on me and they're quite cute, though separated socks would be better.

Ah yes, the limited storage problem. As long as you collecting without selling you will inevitably run into this problem. My personal advice is to try buying only toys you REALLY want and also avoid complete collections and instead try to collect from many different toylines to keep your collection varied, interesting and less suffocating.
>also I like Minna Moody a lot

These are pretty cute though they look a little too much of a mix of Hairdorables and La Dee Das with their face-ups. Though I do like that their legs are really muscular looking with flat feet, hopefully that'll make them easier to pose with out a stand.

On an unrelated note do you guys think that MGA will ever make fashion packs for the OMG dolls? I really miss the old standard for fashion dolls where you can get a brand new pack for the dolls you already have, especially since OMG dolls have their set style for each character.

Easily hands down the best fashion doll reviewer; her attention to details and high quality photos were great. I'm still bummed about her leaving (tbf fashion doll market was in absolute shambles when she left; many doll lines died and even companies such as tonner) and focusing on fixing generation girl-like dolls.
>I check https://venivididolli.blogspot.com from time to time, but it's not the same
Same. I mostly know her from the time when flickr and livejournal were still relevant. She got an an amazingly huge and varied doll collection, but other than that her photos are still old 2000's crappy quality and her "reviews" are more of lazy show-off like most doll "reviewers". You should check her flickr, she has pro account and all her old pics are still there.

>On an unrelated note do you guys think that MGA will ever make fashion packs for the OMG dolls? I really miss the old standard for fashion dolls where you can get a brand new pack for the dolls you already have, especially since OMG dolls have their set style for each character
I highly doubt it, since each doll have too specific theme/style for allowing mixing and matching, the same issue that started with MH and began this awful trend (and that's one of the main reasons I found MH overrated).

>>96876
>When I look at them I'm so glad I no longer "need" to own at least one doll from each bullshit line being pushed
How many failed doll lines did Mattel came up with since the death of MH and EaH? 4 dollines: 1. WWE - the average girl couldn't give less of damn about it 2. Wild Hearts Crew - outdated 2000's emo scene fashion with all dolls sharing the same color palate (boring) and having molded bras 3. Creatable World - controversial toyline that couldn't be sold internationally (e.g. Russia) and the wigs were garbage 4. Netflix Nu-Ra - neither girls nor the vast majority of doll collectors gave a shit. It's almost mind-blowing how despite that, plus losing the DC license and Barbie doing bad, Mattel haven't gone completely bankrupt and refused Hasbro' offer to buy them twice (thank goodness)!

I completely agree the dolls are passable, tbh I'm more interested in the female T-Rex from the line and after I found out she isn't being sold with a doll I want her even more! The fact a side animal is more appealing than the main dolls in the line really shows how bad it is…

>The cavemen theme isn't that interesting or relevant

Mattel tried to go with good ol' Flintstones feeling (Emberly "NotPebbles") combining 80's-90's bright colors, but how many kids today even know about the Flintstones >how do you do fellow kids.jepg

IMHO it's not a bad idea in general (it's rather quite unique for fashion doll line out of all things), but the execution is definitely bad. Foremost, they should have downsized the scale to 5.5" inch like original She-Ra to allow world building aka, vehicles playsets which are now, sadly, a thing of the past/limited to Lego and Playmobil. Not to mention it's would've made the paper-thin clothes forgivable. Second, they should've gone with edgier look like tribal tattoos and bone piercings, giving it more caveman/primitive feel to it and making it cooler.

Are there any other places to discuss dolls among female collectors? Some time ago I run into an actual forum (I think it was called Dollieh Heaven or something), but it was mostly dead. Even though I am not as much of a collector as I used to be, I would still like to talk about dolls with others. I love this thread, but it's barely moving and rarely gets engaging posts like yours!
I did not know those doll websites/blogs, will check them out!
I knew something irked me about venivididolli but could not put my finger on it. It's true, her blog is truely straight from the 00's!
The Cave Club also made me think of Flintstones, but I bet that current kids don't know about that and wouldn't care. I feel like this line will fail, but maybe I am wrong (I'm surprised tbh that Enchantimals are still going! They are nothing special tbh).

You mean Dollieh Sanctuary, I also know about a forum called DollDreaming (but it's mostly for Dollfie Dream and other big vinyl dolls), both are slow. If you want fast-paced places for discussion, I guess your best bet are facebook groups and 4chan (beware, lots of shitposting, asshole attitude and creepy dudes). Personally, I like it here even if it's very slow as I prefer quality over quantity and I'd like to avoid the whole inevitable ego-trip and drama involved with namefaggging

>I feel like this line will fail, but maybe I am wrong (I'm surprised tbh that Enchantimals are still going! They are nothing special tbh)

I will be shocked if Cave Club would succeed considering the harsh competition with LOL OMG, but maybe the lower price point will give it advantage.
Enchantimals still running?! Well, the cute animal theme with small animal sidekick is naturally popular among girls and Mattel most likely took inspiration from once popular Shopkins which also had molded tops (eew) and small sidekicks.


>Side note, but why are there two black/tan girls and no asian character? Unless the guy is asian, but I don't think so?

Probably because Asians care less about representation than blacks? I mean they're still way more attached to their origin countries than blacks and which have plenty of media and merch specifically aimed for them (The three main big/known Asian countries, each have their own fashion doll: Japan- Licca, China- Kurhn, South Korea- Mimi). I doubt there's an ill intent behind that from Mattel and they might've planned Asian dolls for the later waves. Furthermore, I heard Mattel plan to increase the number of black dolls (more shitty Black barbies without eyeshadows and blush, having non-bendable knees and wearing a potato sack just like the shitty white Barbies!) so they're more focus about that.

This was one of the best fashion doll line by Hasbro which isn't saying much since they had very few and most of them are garbage ccoughDisney Princessescough
It was way better modern iteration of Trolls than what they did with the Dreamworks movie.
>I wish I bought at least one when they were sold in my country waaay back in the day
In my country, we only got few of them and they were expensive so I skipped them and tbf fashion dolls were still great at that time so Trollz were nothing special. My favorite one was of course the purple gothic one, Onyx, and best version of her imo was the Glitter and Glam one though the second set of clothes were dull (white top tank and wide black pantes). I didn't saw that version in my country.
May I ask which one are you aiming for? Also, good luck anon, may the ebay gods be with you!

>I wish the line lasted longer, tbh a furry-esque doll line sounds really fun and has so much possibility
Same, I completely agree with you
To think it was designed by the original Bratz creator and was made by a smaller toy company entering the fashion doll market for the first time, what a waste. I feel like playline toy market really went down the hill and stale after 2012 as in general and not just for dolls; many great toylines died and Mattel' and Hasbro' dominance grew even stronger. It became completly rare after 2012 seeing smaller toy companies/new doll lines at Toyfair.

I've been collecting toys for a while now and I'm at a point where I feel like I'm running out of room but I still have tons of stuff on my wish list. I don't know what to do about this. I've seen collectors say that you should try to stick to just one thing/toyline/type of toy, but I just can't do it. I was collecting only Pokemon plush/merch for a while, but then I couldn't stop myself from buying MLP stuff and other random stuff I see and just buy because I want it. And I have a collection of more realistic wildlife stuffed animals too but to display them it clashes with the colorful/cartoony aesthetic of Pokemon/MLP/Amuse, etc. Does anyone else have this problem? How do you organize your collections? I don't want to get rid of anything but I'm worried I'm becoming more of a hoarder…

I'm sorry to tell you anon but there's no way to keep expanding your collection indefinitely without being a hoarder.
You're going to need to implement a "one in = one out" policy. Decide how much space you have for your collection and stick to that, don't let it take over. Be strong.

How where the Trollz better than the Dreamwork Trolls? I have no interest in the latter, but the former seems a bit awkward. I mean, trolls as random animesque teenage girls?
I meant more in the toy form; Trollz kept the fugly charm the original Troll dolls had, whereas the new Dreamworks ones look too cutesy.

Bummer indeed, it was the same case for me. I got one through Amazon back then. I also tried looking for Cutie Pops but they were already too rare and expensive at that point.
>Its so wild how mattel fucks over their best designers
I blame the cheapskate overpowered marketing department and Mattel' tendency to appeal to soccer moms.

Because they have the most retarded marketing department that probably consist of SJWs alongside shit taste toy designers (Carlyle Nuera), otherwise how the hell you would explain their beyond dumb decision to make a controversial doll line such as Createable WOrld as if their some small niche toy company and not one of the biggest toy companies in the world who should be able to sell their shit everywhere.

Oh, and I forget to mention that Barbie started as knockoff of Bild Lily which was character from German comic strip aimed at adult men and meant to be a gag gift, yet the doll became popular among little girls because guess what they appreciate beauty and quality as much as adults do.

Why are you putting doll collectors in quotes? Is that some attempt at an insult? It's a normal and accurate term. People that collect dolls are doll collectors.
>little girls appreciate beauty and quality as much as adults to
Bild Lilli became popular because it was the only doll of an adult women and not an child, which is why Ruth Handler's daughter loved it (previously she played with paper dolls). It allowed girls to imagine their adult life and not just being a mom.

It was also a factor, but not the only one and doesn't contradict my claim.

Ahhh, I misunderstood your posts. Now I see what you meant.
TBH we cannot say how much Bild Lilli's quality contributed to her popularity. Girls could love her even if she was cheap cause there was no real competition. It's true that kids absolutely DO see difference in doll quality. Only dumbass adults think that a cheap bootleg is just as good as a legitimate Barbie (I am not talking about someone not being able to afford a brand doll, just being like "what's the point of overpaying if you can get a doll for half of the price??? It doesn't make a difference anyway, both have the same purpose".
I liked the woke Fashionistas in the beginning because they were quirky anf cute compared to the bloated nightmare that the Generation Girl mold ended up being, but I see Barbie disappearing since the dolls are no match to all the colorful, gimmicky rivals. Not many kids will buy an alopecia doll compared to LOL OMGs and others.

The BMR1959 line is a hot mess, the Fashionistas have some cute dolls but the clothes are such cheap crap. Sad about the Silkstones. I loved the fact that you could still get well-made Barbies, end of an era, I guess. I'll pick the last one up, the outfit is gorgeous.

Are there any other traditional 'fashion dolls' that still exist? I know Gene isn't made any longer, Tonner dolls went bankrupt, too, afaik? Are there European dolls that fit?

Although there might be some truth to that, they were a massive downgrade to original Fashionistas and Life In The Dreamhouse (one the best Barbie lines ever) which finally gave Barbie an actual story and characters only to be immediately vanished and be replaced with random Barbie dolls (you're Barbie, everyone's Barbie!). Worst of all they stopped having click knees REEEEEEEE…and from this moment and on Barbie became worthless shit.
>compared to the bloated nightmare that the Generation Girl mold ended up being
Their fashion was still less tacky and they had BENDABLE KNEES.
>Not many kids will buy an alopecia doll compared to LOL OMGs and others
Not just kids, but actual doll collectors as well. Just compare the upcoming Rainbow High to BMR1959 which share the same price point;
Rainbow High
>Second outfit including second pair of shoes
>Insert eyes with real eyelashes
>Brush, Doll stand and two hangers for the cloth pieces
>Double jointed elbows and knees
>No pixelated face printing
And to add insult to injury they use the same lame "brand tags" trend, only that its actually executed well. How can Mattel even compete at this point?! In fact, I've seen knockoff with better cloths and face printing than current Barbie.

>>99336
>The BMR1959 line is a hot mess

>the Fashionistas have some cute dolls but the clothes are such cheap crap
It isn't just the clothes, look at their awful face printing; when was the last time Barbie had eyeshadow and blush? Where is that detailed textured softness? Instead you get that sharp pixelated retarded smile that stares into the void.
>I loved the fact that you could still get well-made Barbies, end of an era
The only options now are hybridizing from Ali Express or getting older Barbies.
>Are there any other traditional 'fashion dolls' that still exist?
All I know of is Integrity dolls, maybe you can find more on https://dutchfashiondollworld.wordpress.com/

Definitely, wish Barbie would return to her roots being shamelessly attractive and beautiful instead of pandering to small group of attention whore freaks who never liked her in the first place.

I don't even mind the albino Barbie that much, but it's sad that Mattel thinks that tumblr pandering is the way to go instead of making quality dolls. Sure, make albino Barbies, but give them cool clothes and make beautiful and memorable dolls as well. Oldschool Barbies had cool attention to detail. Even MH dolls did not so long ago, what happened?

I wasn't aware that representing skin conditions was virtue signaling but keep telling yourself that if it helps you sleep at night. You're complaining about a company marketing a doll line toward children with skin conditions like it's some sjw bullshit. They're a company.

Wonder why Mattel has not made an albino doll in the 80's, 90's or early 00's? Have A
albino children were not invented yet? What about fat girls? And why they still haven't produced a down syndrome Kelly? Surely children like this exist and play with Barbies.
You are deluding yourself if you think that social media and feminist criticism didn't force Mattel to go all inclusive. They made a curvy Barbie after years of feminist criticism AND because ugly AF Lammily beat them to the punch and gained attention for being a 'healthy, realistic' doll.
I can buy they are trying to appease adult sjws with kids, but not that they care about children that much.
Contrary to what you think, I'm not against diversity in dolls. I loved the Dolls of the World series, Kira was my favorite Barbie friend. But dolls have to be quality and beautiful as well. Mattel is clearly failing here and tbh has been failing since way before the tumblr style dolls.

I wish for DC Giganta, she would be prefect for this scale! Which characters do you wish for?
Hopefully, they will eventually make dolls at the height 12" and under as well, I remember Tonner had dolls in all kinds of scales and styles-so greater variety like in the past would be wonderful.
Wonder what "highly articulated body" means? Is it your standrad 12 PoA for adult collector fashion dolls like Integrity Toys or something like Barbie MtM? It would be quite disappointing if it will be the former.

I'm not fan of the Frozen-esque faces for the females either, in particular their thin edgeless lips. The boy' face is much better and decent imo. Shame they didn't extend the pattern on his jacket to his pants which look kinda cheap and dull. As for the colors besides the female eyebrows (that thick bright turquoise on tan skin, just doesn't look good), are pretty and cohesive. Another thing worth mentioning, it's great that they finally start to give the dolls normal-sized earrings instead those ridiculously enormous ones which are repulsive and disturbing.

I would love to see characters from Lord of the Rings as dolls. Especially elves like Legolas, Arwen or Galadriel. I am not sure how feasible is that. I regret not being able to buy the Barbie LotR dolls (even though they are not that great), so I would love to get a second chance! Otherwise IDK, I am not into things like Marvel or DC. Maybe a nice Severus Snape doll? Can't believe Mattel hasn't given us that yet, it's the only doll from HP that I would actually buy! Would love a Kylo Ren/Ben Solo doll as well but I doubt it's possible taking into account how big of a trainwreck the new trilogy ended up being.
>I'm not fan of the Frozen-esque faces for the females either
Holy shit, I can't believe I haven't noticed that! I hate those faces so much. I never saw the connection to the Elsa dolls, but now I can't unsee it. I thought that the faces look impish AF and I had no idea why would anyone like them.

Sometimes I wish that Azone and Medicom will cooperate to make unique bodied and accurate license dolls but with rooted hair and nice-looking body underneath, in other words combining both companies strong points.
>but I doubt it's possible taking into account how big of a trainwreck the new trilogy ended up being
Disney kept pushing the ST despite being failure, I think they'll continue to try so it won't be completely in vain.

Looks like they try to cash-in on that online makeover games trend…almost a decade later. I kinda like the one with purple hair, but I think I'll have to wait for irl pics to decide and tbh I'm not sure if I'm even gonna bother if they won't sold in my country.

>I will buy at least one of those unicorns! The pink one, probably

Yeah, she has the cutest pose. For some reason I'm drawn to the green one.

>Modern MLP sucks

True
Now MGA not only BTFO of Mattel, but also Hasbro is being BTFO

>the G1 repro series is not freely available in my country

I wish they made G2 repro, but that's probably never gonna happen tasteless American girls. Other option is getting World's Smallest G1, they have the "basic pose" (idk much about G1). I have them so I'll upload a pic at some point.

Oh my God! And he is gonna get released in August??? I need him on my shelf now! Hope my local doll distributors hurry the fuck up! I don't want to overpay or wait until X-mas to buy him. For some reason, a few months ago I actually had a dream about buying a Snape doll (with a playset??? wtf), and I am not even that big of a HP fan! This is the only HP doll that I want, TBH. Hope the actual doll doesn't look much worse than the promo pic. How did the already released HP dolls compare?
>You own genuine g1 ponies? Sweet. Can you show some of them?
I do have a small collection, yes! I don't have anything especially rare since I live in Europe (they are not as common here, or at least in my country) and I am a poorfag compared to the American collectors. I do love all my G1s a lot! I also have some G2s. A few months ago I was lucky to buy like 5 or 6 MIB G2's from a guy that apparently bought a warehouse in Netherlands full of late 90's toys (I also bought some oldschool Pokemon merch from him). The ponies don't have their backcards as they got destroyed, but they are still in the plastic bubble along with their original accesories (except for a pair of fabric wings or something, IDK what happened). I also got a playset MIB though it's not that great (it's a wedding dinner room or something). I love G2s, even though I wish there were more poses. They were beautiful, but could use some variety! Obsessing over G2 ponies as a kid is probably what started my lifelong obsession.
I will try to take photos of them! Looking forward to seeing the smallest G1!
>I heard someone else mention it too, I just hope Hasbro won't try to sue MGA for MLP likeness
Do they even remember about Takara MLP and do they still hold the copyrights? I know a few years ago there was a huge issue with Hasbro apparently losing rights to G1 characters except for Applejack (which is how FiM mane six happened). But maybe that's not an issue anymore since they are remaking the G1 toys? My head hurts, this is such a mess!

As for the World's Smallest, they're a bit bigger than I expected. They have nice and come with a brush. My only gripe is they aren't made of soft vinyl, but it's understandable considering how difficult would it be to produce at this size, not to mention it's a lot more expensive than hard plastic.

Oh, those are great!!! I'm tempted to buy Alice (but I will probably not, since I am not attached to the character - the doll looks great though!) or Esmeralda - though it irks me how the clothes look cheap AF, the 90's Mattel doll was MUCH better. The skirt should use much more fabric, and the corset is poor as well!
A Disney heroine doll line was long overdue, but the effort is a bit hit or miss… Maybe they are budget dolls and I shouldn't be complaining that much? What is the price tag?
Megara compares even worse to the 90's Mattel doll than Esmeralda. I adore her unique face mold! The Disney Megara looks too soft and generic.

I kinda dig that Millie (see Mattel you can make Millie head mold look good when you bother), but the dress reminds me of that cloth used to clean glasses. Also she's on that stiff model/Barbie Basics body which sucks, they should go back using Shani body for the collector dolls.

I don't like the black one face mold nor face printing. They should've use Mibili or even Millie.

The last Silkstone is cute, shame she is on that badly sculpted articulated body which completely butchered the beautiful Shani body proportions.

Goddamn anon, now I want to customize my Child as well! I have looked on Etsy and I like the most the legs with plastic feet. As you said, they are very expensive though (not to mention the shipping, sigh). I am considering buying just the plastic feet and combining them with baby thights as you said. If you succesfully make legs for your Yoda, please give an update! I suck at crafts but I am really tempted to give this a shot… It irked me that the Mattel Baby Yoda doesn't have legs, but the face is so wonderful I decided to ignore that (plus there is no better option tbh).

I have caved in and bought the cheapest pair of Yoda feet (pic related). I was planning to attach them to the thights, but now I have no idea how.

I'm not much of plush collector (I do have some small collection from my childhood), as I grow up action figures and fashion dolls became my top priorities while plush as at the bottom. My most "recent" purchase was few years ago, if anyone remember there was small trend of brand called *"Bush Baby World" by Golden Bear Toys (in the US it was called Fur Babies and was distributed by Moose Toys). They've unique and fun gimmick in which you put your finger inside a small socket in the back of their head and then you can move around their eyes and ears. I'm very fond of their eerie 50's toys aesthetic going with their face sculpts and eyes while still being cute! I got the first basic editions which personally I prefer over the later ones with flowery prints, "troll hair", etc. I'm not certain if the brand is dead or not; the website does no longer works, but I happened to see some new products (with even crazier prints, new eye shape, more accessories and even blind bag crap plastic figurines eew), specifically from a Russian site- https://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/156803803/ , https://www.ozon.ru/category/myagkie-igrushki-7175/bush-baby-world-147308005/ .

*Fun fact: in Japan it was called Gyoroppy and was distrubited by Bandai.

Turns out these cost 70$ which is a bit steep, I wouldn't mind it so much if the bracelet and socks/tights were actual separate accessories and not printed. Hopefully it will get down to 60$. I like these a lot more than the regular ones since their hats are removable and they have ears, such shame they still kept having printed jewelry and socks, otherwise they would've been perfect. Usually I would prefer bunny over cat and "gothic" look over cute one, but pinkXblack are one of my most hated color combinations and goes more with emo style rather than goth. Overall, I'd like to see more "ultimate" nanana dolls…what are your thoughts?
P.S. some irl photos I've found of them on instagram- https://bibliogram.art/p/CEAceLjH-B3/ , https://bibliogram.art/p/CEAixtHntte/ , https://bibliogram.art/p/CEC9BbRnL0M/ ,

I don't know if she ships abroad. She's closing her website and I grabbed this plush on discount (I had my eye on it for a while).

Bishoujo MLP line is releasing the princesses and I'm actually pretty happy with the mockups. I really don't like advertising I liked the show despite being female and having young family members being the appropriate age who adored it. So I really enjoy this inspired line where I can just say I enjoy the style they go with if asked.

These are really cute! I wish they had made the cape thing on Luna's skirt translucent and sparkly like her tail.

Idk if anyone already posted it but here are the rest of the characters.

My biggest hope is The Dazzlings get their own as well. They were my favorite villains I love a good catty friend group.But besides that, if Sunset looks good in her final mold I'll prob grab her.

MLP: FIM was good until season 3, just one season more after Faust left. Afterwards it did become a stupid show for little 8 year old girls. The new DC Super Hero Girls by Faust is also great, but Mattel toys are hot garbage as usual and now that DC Direct has been disbanded there isn't even a chance for at least nice statues like they did with Super Best Friends Forever.

I kinda wanted the Rainbow Dash one, but I just can't justify shilling out 100$ for a statue when I can just get toys instead, Maybe I'll try to get KO at some point.

>tfw you lived long enough to see Licca becoming an instagram thot
tbh I've only started to collect Licca 3-4 years ago
There's a new Licca subline called #Licca I really hate hashtags outside of the internet, it meant to replace the Bijou Series which was also in the same price range, around 40$ and stand as a middle ground between the standard playline Licca and the adult collector line Stylish Doll Collection.
In this new line Licca is 17-year-old in second year of high school (JK), the doll height is 27cm and still can share accessories, shoes and some clothes with regular Licca.
