Dol-valanche! When all your pre-orders show up in the same two weeks!

Panic. Full on panic. That was the feeling that I and many other collectors felt when we got a recent shipping release update from IT. Several dolls that were expected in late spring and here like NOW! Poppy London Wave, Metamorphosis Erin, Golden Holiday Poppy, Alta Moda Karolin, Glimmer East 59th...umm i am sure I am mentally blocking out some to protect my fragile psyche. Luckily I only have two poppies on order...but of course I entered in the lottery for the caped Poppy...and Nordstrom Elyse...and the waitlist for Erin Metamorphosis.


Not to mention, the last wave of Jem dolls dropping. For some wackadoo reason, I ordered doubles. WHAAATTTTT!  Luckily I found some folks to take those extras off of my hands. I might end up selling Farewell Jem nude but will wait to see what her face looks like in person. In the promo photos, she looks a boozey? I currently lack the space to display the extra holograms...but I have already pretty stripped down the Jem displays w…

Tonner 2018 Toyfair Release-More Wonder Woman...Shut up and Take My Money

Oh dear. This is going to be an expensive year. I'm definitely wanting Training Armor Diana. She looks stunning...and I think the face paint on this one is even better than the first version. I will likely get the blue dress too. I think I am going to skip the black coat and just make my own. It looks great, but feels too short for me. It looks like it comes to the ground in the film stills....and $50 feels like a lot for something that I know that I could make. Hmmm.

T18DCDD01 Wonder Woman-Training Armor - $210.00
Sheltered from the reality of the real world, the Amazonian Princess Diana prepares for her unknown destiny.  Featuring a beautifully accurate portrait sculpt of Gal Gadot with hand painted details, this ¼ scale figure on the new 16" RTB 101 hard plastic/vinyl body, is heavily articulated and outfitted in an exacting replica of the Themyscira training armor as worn in the Wonder Woman movie.  The removable molded armor is movie accurate and hand painted.  “Bracelets …

The Gala gown blue dress is a stand alone fashion retailing for $109 and nearly ready to ship. It will come with blue shoes (which I love...even though she actually wears her boots in the movie). In the video he says that it comes with the sword too...which I find h…

Tonner Wonder Woman Gal Gadot! Stunning!

When initial promo images surfaced, I was not impressed. Something about the sculpt was not doing it for me. BOY WAS I WRONG. Actually...more like...Tonner needs to take better pictures of his products. In person, this doll is gorgeous and really does capture the gorgeous actress. I kind of wish she had applied lashes and I might add them myself...but that is pretty much my only gripe about this doll.

After seeing Tonner's deboxing video, I immediately regretted not ordering her and, in a panic, scoured the internet trying to find one. I was able to secure the bundle pack from Doll Peddler and she arrived on Monday night. AMAZING!!!

The sculpt is great. Nicely painted as well. Nice hair with good curl and style (but it could be a little longer IMO but still works for me). The figure comes dressed in her outfit and boots. You need to put on the harness, headband, bicep cuff, and metal bracers. The doll comes with no instructions sadly. I would have never figured out the harness or…

Tonner Valentine's Sale-Now until 2/16/18

Tonner has some decent deals right now on the DeDe Denton fashions (which fit the Lara Croft/Deluxe Athletic DC lady type bodies) and some outfits for the chic body from the Marley line. The DeDe outfits are almost worth it for the shoes alone. I currently only have my custom Power Girl with this body though...and I don't really ever see myself changing her clothes. So I am resisting. MUST RESIST.

Resolution Update Week 5...meh...

Well here we are in February. I have kept up with working out. I am getting to the gym at least twice a week and usually at least three times a week. I continue to hula hoop in the evenings to get a little more exercise. I have also made a make-shift standing desk in my office to stay a little more active during my office hours. I have made little to no progress in losing weight though. Ugh.

On the doll collecting front, I have made a lot of progress. I have listed a TON on stuff on eBay...mostly old Tonner dolls and clothes. I am pretty much purging anything that is not related to my Tonner DC Stars collection. It feels good to lighten the load a bit as much of this stuff has not been on display or out of a storage bin in a couple of years easily.

Of course, one step forward, two steps back. Even though I am purging a bunch of stuff, more comes in as always. After initially passing on Tonner's new Wonder Woman based on the prototype images. I caved last week and ordered her afte…

2018 W Club Registration and Upgrade Dolls

After what felt like a torturous wait time, we finally see the 2018 Upgrade dolls for the W Club! Integrity has informed us that they have changed the way the shopping cart works which will most directly impact overseas members who would combine shipping between several members in order to save money overall. Now members who want to continue this practice have to form a 'club gang' with a main ring leader running the gang account and putting in all the orders. I don't envy them and this new obstacle for collecting but I do understand the logistical nightmare that the prior ordering methods caused for IT and club liaisons. The new cart system will also make 'takeovers' trickier. I think this might be a good thing. I am hoping it will make everyone (including me) be more thoughtful when ordering exclusives and entering in lotteries. ***Only order what you love people!***  Takeovers will still be possible but will require the original buyer to complete the sale and t…
