I'm hooked on Pokemon and Formeez for my 3ds right now. Call of Duty/Modern Warfare3 and Dead Island are the main two I play currently.

Not really, but it's fun to hear about other kinds of superstitions in other countries. lol

My mother is South Korean and she says you never gift items like Knives ( meaning you want to cut yourself from someone's life/ end friendship ). You don't give your significant other shoes ( used to run away from you/end relationship ). It's fun to hear about superstitions and how they came about.

Taxel - Again, please take a moment to read my posts slowly . Blythes are toys, they serve no greater purpose than to entertain and occupy one's time. A $500 doll is still a doll. There are parents who shell out a lot for toys for their kids.

Blythes are Blythes, regardless of size. It's a brand. If you chose not to accept the mini's as "real Blythes" then that is okay. Blythes are not readily available anymore and that drives their values into the couple of hundred dollar price range... but still, at the end of the day you still have an expensive toy staring at you.

*** Since I don't like the hostility I have been reading from your posts, I'm going to ignore you and try to enjoy this forum but with more caution. As I hope not everyone I come in contact here is as combative in language as you have come off to me as being in all of your posts towards me. Maybe it's the huge age difference, maturity or whatever... Agree to disagree, and all that I suppose.

Taxel, Please read my posts again.

 Edit: I can see where the miscommunication could have been made... when I said "these dolls" I was referring to Novistars, not Blythes.

I never said Obitsu were stock bodies for Blythe. People customize Blythes to have obitsu bodies to improve articulation. Just like Pullips being put on obitsu bodies because they are sturdier than default Pullip bodies.

LPS currently has mini Blythes with their pets and they are adorable but kinda creepy, maybe it's the size/scale. They are cute in that "blank stare" kinda way. They are marketed as a child's toy. Blythe were rejected by American children and picked up by the Japanese in popularity, which is why Blythe's are not available in the US today. A toy is a toy, no price tag changes the nature of a toy. People collect, keep mint in box for display and even actually play with their Blythe. I have friends who customize Blythes, and you see it all the time on Flickr.

 "say Blythe should be more popular with kids in order to have joints."
No. I wish you would stop twisting what I clearly typed, since you've even went as far as to quote me in your post.

I was referring to how the first thing we notice is joints and articulation. To basically brush off a doll that does not have the posability of modern line dolls is sad and in my opinion pretty superficial. BUT I respect everyone in their collecting/play styles. I buy toys I like.

If NoviStar dolls became AS POPULAR as MH and similar multi-jointed dolls, then maybe they will start a line with more joints like those seen in modern Barbie and MH. I've been into dolls long enough to know that if it doesn't sell, then it gets dumped for the latest/newest hot seller.

Taxel -

I've seen a lot of Blythe customs and most have the original body. I have seen some using Obitsu bodies as they are very posable. If these dolls were to gain as much popularity as Brats, Barbie and MH dolls, we could see a lot more interesting ideas.

It's just sad to read that some are passing these dolls up because they aren't as posable as MH and such. To each their own, I respect.

I love these dolls because they resemble the artwork seen in High Fructose Magazine, Junko Mizuno's manga style ( I have the manga Cinderella and love the art work ).

I stumbled on them being on the bottom shelf of the girls' doll isles at Toys R Us. They had four of each doll.

I adore my Una Verse. She's more of a desk mascot for me. I think that just because a lot of us got spoiled with jointed dolls that because they weren't jointed brushed these cuties off.

edit: after all Barbie and Blythes weren't all that posable in the beginning. They could only sit or stand.
