The Dollhouse / Re: Ball Jointed Dolls Thread #4
« on: January 19, 2017, 09:31:52 PM »
Does anyone happen to know if Blythe clothes fit Freyrs/Freyas? I bought some standard YOSD clothes for my Freyr but he's practically swimming in them! I thought Blythe clothes might fit better since they're smaller, but I don't own any, and I'm too hesitant to buy some and try it out myself.

I'm going absolutely crazy right now. I really want Lopez but I can't seem to find him for adoption/sale anywhere. So if anyone has Lopez in their town and they don't want him, I'm willing to pay to have him!

I would have loved it if Hasbro rebooted Jem (I'm a total 80s kid at heart and Jem is the 80s-est thing ever created) instead of creating EQGirls, but let's be real--that would've been a very poor business decision.
They would have been launching a line that would be pretty unfamiliar to kids and most parents, which is always pretty risky. They'd have to spend a lot of time and energy redesigning Jem to be relevant in this day and age--because face it, Jem is pretty dated-- which means spending a lot, because time is money.
Hasbro is probably also really reluctant to reboot Jem because yeah, the cartoon seems to be getting a lot of viewership today, but so did the cartoon back in the eighties. The dolls failed spectacularly. And if the dolls didn't sell well back in a time where toy companies didn't have to worry about digital media stealing their customer base, they're not gonna sell well in the mega competitive market of today where that is an ever present reality.
I know nothing of Moondreamers, but I reckon it's the same thing: it's not right here, right now for a reason.
From a business stand point, it makes a lot more sense to take your best selling toy line, alter it into something that sells really well and sell it like that. It's a brand that's recognizable, in a setting that little kids love to consume. Hasbro didn't have much to lose, because I can bet that producing the EQGirls movie and doll design didn't cost anywhere near what launching a brand new line plus the beginnings of a cartoon would have cost.

Genji looks awesome. Maybe he just wants to train his hair to be stronger? The only bunny I have is Snake, who keeps trying to move out. I won't allow it!
Where does everyone get those banners with your friend code and name? I want one o:

My grail doll is Withdoll's Halloween Scarecrow. I couldn't have possibly afforded her even when she was out, but I'm still super ticked about it.

Parasol, Pillow Talk and Heartthrob.

I keep Pillow Talk next to my bed so she may grant me pony dreams. Or something.

Sparkly ponies. -grabby hands-
I'm actually really excited for these!

How hard are these to rehair? I love the first release Jade's eyes, but I imagine her hair is as bad as the others, so if I picked one up, I'd rehair her later on.

Her plastic looks like it's a dark metallicy gold color and her hair's different from her other releases. Maybe a test run for a special release?

I like her a lot, but I think I'd like her a little more if the glitter on her eyeshadow was red or orange or something, and not white.

I'm in love with the white one, with her freckly skin. They're so bizarre, I want them all.

She made a cotton candy unicorn a while ago and I was dying for it. I really want to start saving for one of these, I'd love one.

Pony Corral / Re: Princess Twilight Sparkle "Adult Collectible"???
« on: July 16, 2013, 06:58:23 PM »
Ah yes this is exactly what I wanted. A fashion style Twilight Sparkle with bedazzled wings that don't match her body and have no attractive color scheme.
You have truly won me over, Hasbro.

I really love her colors and her pose is one of my favorite unicorn poses, and twinkle eyes are up there in my five favorite sets, but I'm not sure I'll ever buy her because she's so expensive.

I want a boy doll. :T

I think Golden Harvest/Carrot Top would be cute.
