Wow, i wish i had this. You're so lucky, Danny-san.
How do you get one with a more modest chest?
Or rather, where do we go to to get a custom order made? Any recommendations to a company or artist that does custom work?
...your damn lucky hands!
not fair volks!
Seems like the wrist joints are really well done, but now they're making onee-san DDs? Awesome.
That sounds like a cute idea for having a little sister around.
I am not really interested in them though.
Most of us did our "adoptions" online, actually. They're just obscure enough still that finding them in a physical shop outside of Japan is almost unheard of, really.
As for safety, it really depends. If you're lucky enough to see your dream girl get released and win the lottery to buy her directly from Volks, it's very safe. Mandarake is safe as well, though since they're secondhand you often end up paying for the good ol' aftermarket markup. Yahoo Japan's safety can be hit or miss in terms of avoiding scammers, though if you read the seller's feedback carefully (whether on your own, with dictionaries, or with a translator), you should be able to weed out the most suspicious listings; however, you will need a proxy service to buy from there. Lastly are communities like Den of Angels and Figure.fm, though DoA suffers from DDs being a minority compared to the resin dolls, and Figure.fm currently lacks a feedback system for classifieds listings.
Yes, I know it all sounds very complicated, and bringing your vinyl (or even resin, should you fall for one) Miss Right home takes a lot of patience and daily lurking on the sites I just mentioned, but it is completely worth it! Or at least, it was for me.
They fixed the knees in an unpublicized redesign...Namiko has the new knees. However, there is still so much wrong with the MDD body that I really am looking forward to replacing it. Why they didn't put a continuous frame in the MDD is beyond me. However, from all reports this represents a step forward.
Oh, like a Mini DD, but not as small. Probably stronger in the knees and ankles, yes?
when is the release date ?
About $230 US at Volks USA which is where I deal with them. Although I'm wondering if the price has gone up thanks to the exchange rate. :P
I actually need to replace Yumiko-tan's arms because of staining and an ill-advised attempt by the person who formerly was pwn3d by Yumiko to seal her vinyl to prevent future staining. Her upper arms have patches of some sort of clear sealant on it that is just...ugh...shiny. Her forearms and hands have burgundy colored stains on them from a Volks Kimono/Hakama set. They look like blushing since I actually did some successful treatments with Benzoyl Peroxide but it's still there and still bugs me. Having that extra range of motion would be totally awesome too.
How much is a bare dollfie body cost?
So... plain, yet... smooth... :-?
Anyone know the retail price for these yet?
I wonder if Volks will retrofit the DDII bodies (or sell retrofit kits) with the new joints? Would love to have the improved articulation in the elbows!
Never would be ever able to afford one.... T_T
If I had a sponsor, yes.....
Has anybody ever bou8ght a Dollfie online? Is it safe to do so? I've been thinking about getting one myself.
v-e-r-r-r-y interesting . . . I'm thinking to buy one of these and let it do guard duty in my shop . . . 8o
oOOooooo so you could have the full Suenaga set!! A 50cm.. better than MDD, but not as good as full DD. Could live with that. But just think... a whole new size for clothing o.O
I wonder what characters will be released with DDS bodies :3
Can't wait to see a comparison...guess the girls are getting a new little sister (literally) later on?...
This is interesting news. At 50cm it's a bit smaller than the usual DDII/DDDy but not as small as an MDD. If it can indeed fit most existing DDII outfits it'll be perfect for 'little sister' characters, I could use one for my Shizuko. ^^
Want! But may only get next year unless a alot of money drop on me lol
I don't think they just shortened the legs. From the pics, it looks like the neck is shorter too. Would not be entirely surprised if they shortened the waist a little as well, considering they say it's a renewed frame...
I'm definitely excited about the new body type~!
Hopefully this will have a full skeleton unlike the MDD's semi-skeleton. If this has a full DD2-style skeleton it looks like Namiko's going to hit puberty soon. If not, then she's going to become a Volbitsu hybrid, because the 50cm Obitsu is the absolute posing champ and has a fully-continuous skeleton.
So, 50cm means it has shorter legs (5cm less than DD) more proportional to the human body?
Also, maybe they release this body for Azunyan? <3
Want! So cute! <3
Reworked articulation! Looks like I no longer have any reason to hold back on DD now... >,<
Need sponsor... T^T
Its on my hit list already
