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 then ship it to the new buyer. The new buyer will have to reimburse the original buyer. This takes the whole transaction out of the hands of the w club liaisons now (who were originally tasked with verifying member orders and cross-referencing).

So onto the new club. I highly recommend joining the W Club if you are even remotely interested in Integrity dolls. I would pay the $50 ($25 given back in the form of a coupon) just to have the early notice on new doll releases since so many of the dolls sell out on pre-orders before the club confidentiality period is over. Additionally, club members get priority for convention registration plus access to the wclub luncheon (usually a nuFace themed lunch). This year promises a minimum of five club exclusive dolls: two Fashion Royalty (which may included nuFace), two Poppy Parker, and one wildcard doll. Then of course there are often lotteries for additional dolls and usually at least one doll for the webinar release. Basically, there are lots of dolls and being in the club allows you to acquire more dolls with (sometimes) less stress. Plus, membership gives you access to the forum community (which I definitely enjoy).

Register now through 9:00 PM ET (New York Time) on February 27th, 2018!  Sign up now!

This doll was the result of the club choice voting that took place during the 2017 club year. I'm a little undecided on this one. I like the fashion a lot though and Anika Luxotica MUST HAVE IT... I will wait to see the doll in person. I have not really been wild about the Eugenia sculpt in the past. I currently have two that are standing in as Cordelia for my Coven dolls. I think this skin tone and makeup combo is pretty nice though so maybe she will be a keeper.


In 2018, Poppy Parker revisits some of the best looks that she’s worn in her modeling career so far, with a twist! The W Club is thrilled to introduce the first entry in the “City Sweetheart” Collection, as designed by David Buttry! In this first installment of Poppy Parker’s latest New York adventure, everyone’s favorite fashionable teen model is seen at her local soda fountain shop enjoying a sip of the best orange pop around on a sunny Saturday afternoon!

High heel lower legs on this one! Those shoes are super cute too and the accessories are totally adorable. The soda pop!!! I not totally into the dress or the doll though but I do like a color. I might get her to steal the body to upgrade one of my older Poppy dolls. We shall see. But now that I think about it, that dress might be hella cute on the pink hair Liu Liu from the Industry. Hmmm.  This line is inspired by Kate Spade and will revisit some of the older favorite Poppy looks. The screening on this doll is a throwback to Reluctant Debut and the dress is reminiscent of Sealed with a Kiss and Dream Teen.


Who better to bring on the NU. Face “eye candy” than the sassy Rayna Ahmadi? 

Our 2018 NU. Face upgrade doll option marks the debut of the new 2018 collection, as designed by the talented Jessy Ayala of Integrity Toys. Bring home this ultra-versatile doll today; she’s full of redress possibilities and is sure to quickly become your favorite runway star!

When this “IT” girl is out for a fun shopping spree in London town, the paparazzi are sure to follow! With her unique mix and match fashion sense, she’s the envy of all the other models of the hour! Rayna Ahmadi is a 12.5-inch articulated vinyl doll featuring fully rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes. Rayna brings on her sassy, sexy side in her perfectly crafted one-piece denim overall jumpsuit! She completes her look with an over-sized jewelry set, a colorful bandana, matching denim open-toed high-heels and a unique ice-cream cone shaped purse, totally anticipating the hot summer days ahead! Doll stand and certificate of authenticity included. For adult collectors ages 15 and up. *This doll will have a non-refundable deposit due immediately, with a balance due at shipping time, approximately in Summer 2018. Prototype shown, final production may vary slightly.

 Rayna is always gorgeous. I think this is a fun doll. The outfit is adorable and ditto the accessories. It is nice to see Rayna in the japan skin tone as well. I am trying to keep sculpt repeats to a minimum though so she might not stay as I adore Neo-romantic...but I doubt I will have any problem selling her should I kick her off the dolly island. 

All three dolls are priced at $125 in fairly basic but nice fashions. I will likely get them all and then sell off parts I am not wild about as it usually ends up being most cost effective to do it that way. 

UPDATE 2/18/18  Thus far I have managed some restraint and only gotten one membership and preordered Eugenia only. I will likely get one more membership though.
