A thread for discussion of fashion dolls including Barbie, Disney, Wild Hearts Crew, LOL OMG, She-Ra, DC Super Hero Girls, Living Dead Dolls, Licca-chan etc but not BJD.

Other toys considered dolls as well as girl collectable toys that are related to dolls or can be used as accessories to dolls are also welcome such as LOL, Capsule Chix, Shopkins, Polly Pocket and the like.

I'm guessing its because she's the only Princess with an outfit that shows her midriff in the original source material.

There's a new upcoming toyline by Moose Toys called Team Gem, which have gimmick that use magnetic ring to make the figures move.
I know these aren't dolls, but they're girl toys so I thought why not.

And to add they're female human figures so it's slightly closer to a doll

What dolls do you collect anon?
>>154
>What dolls do you collect anon?
Don't collect any unfortunately. I really like some of the older, more vintage style Barbies and BJDs. I still live with my family and would get called a faggot for buying a girls toy, so I'll have to wait until I move.
>>152
Don't worry about it, generals here are more inclusive than those on 4chan as there aren't any 'micro-communities' on this board. I'm not big on generals, but I dont' see them as detrimental right now because we aren't that big of a board.
>>156
That's sucks anon, I hope your situation will improve soon!

>vintage style Barbies
The closest thing I have to that is repro Skipper.

>BJDs
I've been wanting one for years (and by that time many of my wishlist have been discontinued), but since I tend to collect all sorts of toys (mainly fashion dolls and action figures), I don't see myself getting one anytime soon.

The new lol omg series 2, same price as serie 1 out maybe in late december. The name are in the first pic order :
Bussy BB
Candylicious
Miss independent
Alt grlll
They're 4 more omg (come with lol sister) to come later as the spring fling/light glitter series and a car

I'm glad the line continues, I hope at some point they will make OMG versions of my wish list and it will have positive impact on the fashion doll market which is very poor quality at the moment.

Alt Girl makes me think of Bratz Tokyo a Go-Go, now that was great fashion doll wave.
>>165
I think it's allready the case with hairdorables hairmaizing, if them and omg do really well we will see even more fashion dolls with unboxing "surprise" fashions and/or accesories gimmick, that would be cool if capsule chix did a regular size fashion doll too, like same concept as create a monster but with robot parts, fabric clothes and rooted wigs

TBH, I'm not a big fan of blind bag since I'd like to know what I get and check if it have any defects. Barbie is going to make blind bag dolls but they're even lower quality than the current regular fashionistas.

>hairdorables hairmaizing
Luckily, they aren't really blind bag; the dolls are fully visible and I guess the "surprises" they come with are all the same.

>capsule chix did a regular size fashion doll too, like same concept as create a monster but with robot parts, fabric clothes and rooted wigs
I got one, they're underwhelming, but maybe a big size with smaller head would work better. Robot CAM equivalent would be neat for sure.
>>170
>I'm not a big fan of blind bag since I'd like to know what I get and check if it have any defects
Yeah, blind bags suck for this reason. Especially when you can determine what is inside the bag by feeling it, as loads of people feeling up the bags wears away paint and damages the toy. I don't quite understand the reasoning behind it either, wouldn't it be more economically viable just to make it identifiable to the customer which toy is in which bag? I don't know if it's just my area but most people either rip open blind bags in stores to see what they are or shoplift them because they aren't worth potentially spending money on a duplicate.
>>172
>wouldn't it be more economically viable just to make it identifiable to the customer which toy is in which bag?
Vice versa, not knowing what you get may force you to get more of it, in order to have the item you want. Blind bag toys are basically gambling for children.


>I don't know if it's just my area but most people either rip open blind bags in stores to see what they are or shoplift them
In my country, all the bling bags are near the cash registers so it doesn't happen, or at least not as often.


BTW, this year was really underwhelming regarding to fashion dolls, very few new dolls and most of them were lame...I wonder if next year will be better.
>>189
>Blind bag toys are basically gambling for children.
Its a pretty lousy marketing tactic, but I don't see it improving because companies can make a quick buck off it. Shame toy companies don't put more effort into long-term solutions, it would solve many issues the toy industry is facing now.

I agree, it just they don't have incentive to do so; all the greatest toy companies were bought by Mattel/Hasbro so competition died and we were left with few small toy companies who aren't willing to take a risk and only want to play it safe.

Panda Mony seems to be the only ones who tries, hopefully their new line will succeeds. I wonder if they would do girls toylines in the future as well.

Not much of doll news; there's a new Brabie and LOL OMG.

Yes, do you think of getting one?

Also more news about LOL OMG, seems like the line doing well if new dolls keep getting released/leaked so quickly.

I like Groovy Babe, despite her outfit being very basic and monochrome, she might be my first OMG doll. IMHO LOL OMG work the best with 50's~70's fashion since their design is very fitting with the beauty ideal of the 50's, they look like modernized Betty Boop. Also, her unique eyes are nice touch and reminds me of Cutie Pops RIP, they should do that to more dolls.

Speedster on the other hand, suffers from too many different patterns clashing with each other and look busy.
>>216
>Yes, do you think of getting one?
Nah I was just surprised Barbie gets double jointed knees. How long has she had articulation like that?

Since 2015 when they came out with the Made To Move (also double jointed hands) , but basic dolls don't even have anymore click knees.

BTW, Shopkins Lil' Secrets still going. Although the new offerings are less good than previous ones, (less paint and more relying on stickers) still miles better than NuPolly Pocket by mattel.

Another issue with those, Moose Toys have return to their old blind bag crap habits, but this time went too far. It's not about what type of toy you get, but how many you will get, what an absolute dick move.

Didn't realise I was this out of touch, but at least it's nice to see articulation in mass produced toys increasing.

What do you mean? Are the legs all one single piece?

Believe me you weren't missing anything, Barbie has been constantly going down the hill since the end of 2013 both in fashion and quality, e.g. the MTM that I got from 2015 have glue in her head. Not to mention that due to Mattel genius decision of making different body types, notably the "curvy" one, aka fatso, the newest fashion packs that meant to fit all, almost always look like potato sack on the nonfat dolls.

>Are the legs all one single piece?
Yes, it's just one hard plastic piece so only the hips can move.

Have you completely stopped collecting in the meantime or just collected something else?
>>229
>Barbie has been constantly going down the hill since the end of 2013 both in fashion and quality
I don't really keep an eye on Barbie so I haven't noticed the decline, but fuck some of those are straight up awful. I think the only one that looks remotely good is the one on the end at the right of the 90s one, but that's without seeing what she actually looks like in person.
>Mattel genius decision of making different body types, notably the "curvy" one, aka fatso, the newest fashion packs that meant to fit all, almost always look like potato sack on the nonfat dolls
You think that the more popular fashion items would be released to fit the older size dolls as well, meaning that adult collectors and children can still get the clothes they want to fit a particular size doll.
>Yes, it's just one hard plastic piece so only the hips can move.
Bloody hell
>Have you completely stopped collecting in the meantime or just collected something else?
I've never bothered with them until an anon over on 4/toy/ posted one he collected (think she was an older Barbie with a cool tie-dyed shirt) and I realised that some look cool. I was looking into BJDs and other /doll/ stuff but put off by the price at the time, so an affordable and decent looking doll is what caught my attention

Same, I'm kinda tempted to get her since she's also on the tall MTM body.

>You think that the more popular fashion items would be released to fit the older size dolls as well
The whole reason they "moved to one size fits all" is to save costs. This exactly why giving different body types for fashion doll toyline is beyond stupid as it completely undermines the play value of swapping clothes. Maybe if it was only height difference, things weren't so bad and could actually work out.

>I was looking into BJDs and other /doll/ stuff but put off by the price at the time
I've been wanting one for a long time..

>an affordable and decent looking doll
Licca-chan, Precure Style and LOL OMG seems to be the only ones at the moment.
There's also Kurhn doll and Mimi world.

Thanks, I'll have a look into them further. Licca-chan has some cool outfits, I like the Wonderland one in particular.
>>242
You're welcome!

>Licca-chan has some cool outfits, I like the Wonderland one in particular
Fore sure, it's like the line got stuck in the 80's in a good way; having the dolls in cute girly outfits instead of trying to copy ugly modern fashion like current Barbie does.
There's new Pretty Cure season and along with that new Precure Style dolls!
I liked last season designs more, but the newer dolls are even better quality and only for 2$ more.

On a side note, Precure Style dolls got amazing click knees, almost 90 degree.
