I'm also weirded out when you guys mention a doll that is really hard to find but is everywhere here, and feel kinda guilty because I'm not interested in that particular doll/line

specially when they are shelves warming, I know! I've thought several times about getting a Ghoul's Alive Robecca for myself or a WTW Briar & Haunted Rochelle (ok, this last 2 are not here anymore, but were plenty when I got them for friends). Also the fashionista pack. I bought and send several, and only kept 3 dolls. I'm kind of thinking I should get another one to keep Clawdeen and Gigi who I don't have and sell the other 3, but only out of guilt because I'm not really interested in them.

I do agree about the O'Haire two pack, it sat on clearance here for a good long while, and it didn't seem like they were selling at all.  And now?  Yikes for anyone who wants it!

I think we all have those dolls, Ameyal.  For us, I definitely think of the Pack of Trouble 4 pack.  It sat, then vanished one day.

and a week after the dolls vanishes from store, the prices start going up Oo

Exactly!

Exactly!

Its like someone is sweeping the store and then putting them on ebay with hiked prices. Which is probably exactly what is happening...

Most likely.  Before Christmas, Roses had put out a lot of old MH and EAH.  Saw all Thronecoming but Cupid.  I hope she went to someone who wanted her, but she was probably snapped up and resold.

I am SO shocked at the price of the 2-pack of the Fierce Rockers and GnB Jinafire. There are several dolls that I'm looking for from the older sets because there isn't anything really to search for that's new right now, and WHEW! The prices at some of these!!

This genuinely shocks me too, because they were dirt cheap when I got mine from Amazon. I only wanted Catty but the price was so good I got it and ended up keeping Toralei too (my only Toralei) just because the whole set made me think of Jem and Pizzazz somehow. I hadn't realised how much it had hiked until recently :/.

I am not convinced G&B Cleo or Jin even came out in the UK. I never saw them. I have Venus and I saw Catrine but never the other two.

They did, actually! They were in Argos; I vividly remember standing in a particular Argos branch making sure I got the doll I needed and of good quality for a buyer here  ^.^ I think I picked up a couple actually, but I can't remember who my buyer was, sorry!  :cry:


I bought G&B Cleo & Jinafire from you, Lady Frostbite! ;)
